The Puerto Rican duo Wisin and Yandel announced this Monday an extensive tour of North America and Puerto Rico, “The Last Mission Tour“, with which they will put an end to a path of almost two decades that began “with a notebook and a dream,” they said.
The singers of music urban, identified as “The duo of history”, will begin the tour on September 20 at the FTX Arena in Miami, in South Florida (USA), and they will do so hand in hand with what will be their last studio album, also called “The last mission”, which will be published between April and May.
“It will be a tour to remember how tasty reggaeton is, it is more to thank millions of people for our almost 20-year career. We are honored and sad at the same time,” recognized Juan Luis Morera, Wisin’s birth name, in a press conference offered this Monday in Miami.
At his side, Llandel Veguilla Malavé or Yandel pointed out that the reason for what will be the duo’s second separation, after a first break in 2014 that lasted five years, has to do with family commitments and projects as soloists.
“We want to close this cycle as it should be,” said the singer, who said he felt “very happy, very complete” due to both the tour and the publication of what will be the duo’s tenth studio album, whose gestation process began since before the covid-19 pandemic.
“Ours is happy, it has energy, and that is what we will do on tour,” Wisin promised, referring to the tour that will pass through 26 cities and that will conclude in style on December 2 at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot, in San Juan.
The singers expressed themselves “very happy” for the “great artists” who have joined their next album, including Tego Calderón, considered one of the “fathers of reggaeton and who has allowed Wisin and Yandel “fulfill a dream” as it is to be able to work with this Puerto Rican figure.
Next Friday the duo will publish a new single that will be part of “The Last Mission”, whose first single was “Recordar”, published last December, they announced.
