After the Taylor Swift Eras tour farce last month, hundreds of Bad Bunny fans were denied entry into Estadio Azteca in Mexico City on Friday night. The stadium has a capacity of 87,000 people for a sold-out concert.
Fans claimed that the venue told them their tickets were invalid. Pictures of the stadium’s general admission field taken just before Bad Bunny’s entry on stage showed it to be almost half empty.
However, the show went as per planned but fans were disappointed that they could not see Benito live. They also raised concerns about how Ticketmaster is handling stadium-size events worldwide.
Bad Bunny’s Age
Bad Bunny, full name Benito Antonio Martinez Ocasio, was born on March 10, 1994, in Almirante Sur, Puerto Rico. He is 28 years old.
Bunny’s father, Tito Martinez, was a truck driver, and his mother, Lysaurie Ocasio, is a retired school teacher. He has two younger brothers, Bernie and Bysael. The rapper started dating jewelry designer Gabriela Berlingeri in 2017.
Bad Bunny has an estimated net worth of $18 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. A huge share of that was made in 2020 when he was Spotify’s most-streamed artist globally with 8.3 billion streams. His album YHLQMDLG was one of the most streamed albums of 2020. His recent album, Un Verano Sin Ti, was named the number-one album of the year by Time magazine.
Bad Bunny started to write and create his own interpretations at the age of 14. He chose his stage name, Bad Bunny, after sharing a picture of himself as a child wearing a bunny suit and having an angry expression. He started posting songs on SoundCloud. In 2016, his song “Diles” gained the attention of DJ Luian who signed him to the label Hear This Music.
Bad Bunny became famous with Soy Peor, as the song reached number 19 on the Hot Latin Songs chart. In 2017, he released more singles, both on his own and in collaboration with other artists. He collaborated with Cardi B and Balvin on I Like It in 2018. He also worked with Drake on Mia, which reached number five on the Billboard Top 100. At the end of 2018, Bad Bunny released his first studio album, X 100PRE.
In 2019, Bad Bunny and Balvin collaborated on the album Oasis, which is a mix of Spanish, Latin American, African, and other beats. In February 2020, he performed during the Super Bowl halftime show and also released YHLQMDLG (an acronym for Yo Hago lo que me da la gana, or I do whatever I want).
Bad Bunny received his first Grammy Award when YHLQMDLG won for best Latin pop or urban album.
