The two artists previously collaborated on the single “Back It Up” with Latin-pop queen Jennifer Lopez and it has been revealed that the shows will also feature a special guest. The tour is being organized by Live Nation and Pitbull has collaborated with an overwhelming number of English and Spanish-speaking artists, so the gravity of these two stars may attract some pretty big names.

The routing will have the boys moving from California through the Southwest into Texas, then over to Florida and up the East Coast, with a final show set for the  in Chicago, Ill., Aug. 16.

Fans who would rather see the dog on the sea can catch him at the  on the Norwegian Pearl cruise ship next year, out of his native Miami March 10.

Pitbull’s music has been streamed or viewed billions of times, and he has performed at the opening ceremony of the 2014 World Cup and this year’s Grammy awards. He is preparing to release his tenth album, Climate Change, later this year. Prince Royce is also working on an album and will be acting in an upcoming season of Hulu’s “East Los High.”
