Fans have until Feb. 5 to vote for their favorite tour and the other categories on the awards website, premiolonuestro.com/vota. The awards show will broadcast from Miami-Dade Arena on Univision Thursday, Feb. 23.
Seven of the 10 nominees appeared on Pollstar’s Top 200 Year-End Worldwide Tours of 2022 with Bad Bunny leading not only Latin musicians, but all artists as the top earner. The Puerto Rican superstar set the all-time record for highest-grossing tour in a single calendar year with a mammoth $435,388,660, according to box office reports submitted to Pollstar, surpassing Ed Sheeran’s 2018 run with the “Divide Tour,” which earned $432.4 million.
“I think we all feel very proud of what he’s accomplished,” Hans Schafer, SVP of Global Touring at Live Nation, which promoted the tour, told Pollstar in December. “It’s a feat that is remarkable. It is huge for Latin music and unprecedented and a remarkable accomplishment on its own, regardless of genre to see an artist of his age reaching those heights is just something that makes it very promising for us, of what the future holds.”
Karol G also had a remarkable year, ranking No. 17 on Pollstar’s Year-End Worldwide Tour list with an impressive haul of $97.2 million. She was the second-highest ranked female artist on the list and her “$trip Love Tour” was the highest-grossing U.S. tour for a female Latin concert headliner.
Daddy Yankee’s farewell tour in 2022 grossed more than $144 million across 61 shows, ranking the reggaeton legend 8th on Pollstar’s list. Grupo Firme played only 28 shows last year but grossed more than $105 million, placing the group No. 22 on the year-end rankings. Rosalía was 74th after raking in $24.6 million, Wisin & Yandel made $18.5 million in 2022 to place 100th, Maluma was No. 126 with $14.9 million and Camilo’s haul of $13.7 million placed him 135th on the list.
