International superstar, rapper, and philanthropist Pitbull is headlining the Smoothie King Center in October. Grab your tickets here.
Known colloquially as “Mr. Worldwide,” pitbull has taken his fame and influence to unbelievable heights. The 41-year-old superstar is currently on a massive trek for his Can’t Stop Us Now Tour. He and supporting artist Iggy Azalea will perform at The Smoothie King Center on October 6.
The artist born Armando Pérez began recording Latin hip hop and crunk-style music in the early 2000s. In 2009 he released his fourth album, Rebelution, which included his breakthrough hit single “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)”. The song peaked at number two in the US. The Cuban-American singer then quickly rebranded himself as a pop artist. His next English album, Planet Pit (2011), featured his first number one hit “Give Me Everything” (featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack, and Nayer).
His subsequent singles–“Timber” with Ke$ha and “Feel This Moment” with Christina Aguilera–were also huge hits in the US. Named for a recent country-tinged single he shares with Zac Brown and Nitti Gritti, the Can’t Stop Us Now Tour is a celebration of Pitbull’s biggest hits, and his ability to turn the party on wherever he goes.
Once he successfully took over the pop charts in the 2010s, Pitbull also stepped into the role of a successful businessman and heart-centered philanthropist. He’d created one of the most impressive careers in music history, and now he could use it to make a change. He helped start a tuition-free public charter school called Sports Leadership and Management (SLAM!), which opened in 2013 in Miami’s Little Havana, the neighborhood where he grew up. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pitbull released a single called “I Believe That We Will Win (World Anthem).” The song inspires those affected by the outbreak to “face everything and rise”.
Can’t Stop Us Now Tour
Back in the spring, Pitbull announced he would hit the road for more than 50 dates on his new tour. Across the tour, he’s joined by Iggy Azalea and Sean Paul on select dates. Additionally, his own SiriusXM Globalization DJs are set to open throughout the expansive tour.
Don’t miss Pitbull in New Orleans at The Smoothie King Center on Thursday, October 6. Tickets start at $16 for balcony seats.
