Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 22 at 10 a.m. Fans will have access to presale tickets beginning Wednesday, May 21 at 10 a.m. through Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood's Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages.
Enrique & Pitbull have come together to create a stage design that offers fans an immersive experience, a chance to get up close and personal with the artists for a once in a lifetime concert experience.
Grammy, Latin Grammy and multiple Billboard Music Award winner Enrique Iglesias is one of the most successful Latin music and pop crossover artists of all time, with more than 100 million albums sold worldwide and 24 No. 1 Billboard "Hot Latin Songs" hits, the most in the history of the chart.
His ability to craft captivating global hits transcends genres and languages, as Iglesias has also notched 13 No.1 tracks on the Billboard Dance Charts (the most of any male artist) and multiple hits atop the "Hot 100."
His latest album Sex and Love has added to his tally of, now, 7 No.1 titles on the "Top Latin Albums" chart and five more consecutive No.1 singles, including the smash "I'm a Freak," featuring Pitbull. The track is a fan favorite follow-up to their 2012 collaboration in "I Like It" from Iglesias' previous multi-platinum and chart-topping album Euphoria.
"There's no better place for me than being up on stage in front of my fans," said Iglesias. "And going on tour with a close friend and someone I admire, like Pitbull, is truly an honor. We really want to give everybody a show that they will remember for the rest of their lives."
Armando Christian Perez, most commonly known as Pitbull, is an award-winning performer and globally successful musician, business entrepreneur, fashion icon and actor whose career sales have exceeded five million albums and more than 50 million singles worldwide.
Pitbull's latest album, Global Warming: Meltdown, features the hit singles "Feel This Moment," featuring Christina Aguilera, "Don't Stop The Party," "Back In Time" from the action-comedy Men in Black 3, and "Timber," featuring Ke$ha, his second No.1 hit on the "Hot 100" chart.
This year, he was selected, along with Jennifer Lopez and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte, to perform the official anthem "We Are One (Ole Ola)" at the opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup in São Paulo, Brazil.
"Going on tour again with Enrique is exciting. He's a talented music star, and also a close friend who I respect and have learned a lot from," said Pitbull. "Together we are going to give fans great music, energy and what they really deserve - to enjoy life and forget the rest for three hours, Daleee!"
Described as the leading next-generation Latin-urban star, J BALVIN's recently released first album La Familia debuted at No.1 in his native Colombia and quickly went multi-platinum.
The album and its first two singles have also enjoyed a growing presence in the top 10 of iTunes' U.S. Latin sales and on Latin radio playlists across the country. His new single "6AM" quickly ascended to No.1 on Billboard's "Tropical Airplay" chart this month, while racking up nearly five million YouTube views in just over a week.
J BALVIN also garnered an ever-increasing fan base through his recent collaboration with Robin Thicke and Pharrell on the Latin American version of "Blurred Lines" and was recently named "Best International Artist of the Year" at Romania's ZU Awards.
