Daddy Yankee ‘Legenddaddy’ Concert in LA: Recap – Billboard

It was hard to predict which song Daddy Yankee would choose to debut his Farewell Tour show. Will he go with an oldie but goodie to promote his new album or stay in his new repertoire, legenddaddy,

The two-hour show chosen to open on Thursday (July 28) — the second night of five of their shows at LA’s Kia Forum — was “Campion,” which was fitting. After all he’s the champion of champions, and watching his high-tech, riveting show he’s still unmatched 32 years after starting his career.

The five-minute countdown is ready (and hyped) as fans eagerly wait to make their grand entry in Bigg Boss. Then, a life-size gold airplane appeared on a 3,600-square-foot holographic screen, landing in the middle of a three-floor stage. Its pilot, Daddy Yankee, turned out to be wearing a black suit, drenched in gold glitter.

“Are you ready, Los Angeles?” He asked the crowd that was roaring when he glanced at the artist who marked a generation with his reggaeton anthem. “I want to thank everyone who came. It’s going to be a party de barrio,” he teased. And with that, the party began with the Yankees performing with their energetic troupe of dancers, 16 in tow, and a live band consisting of nine musicians and backup singers.

Throughout the show, he took fans down memory lane performing classics such as “Rompe,” “Machucando,” “Lo que paso paso,” in which fans sang the song. “When the tour is over and I go back to Puerto Rico, I’ll remember this beautiful moment,” he said as he sang the opening of the track to thousands of people at once.

After a quick costume change—at this point he was wearing a baseball jersey with “LegendD” written on the front and “1990” on the back (the year he began his career)—he continued to sing “Mayor que yo.” ,” “Tu Principe,” “Wai Yo Voi” and “Ella Me Levanto.”

Each performance was accompanied by dynamic and in-your-face scenes that really came alive on the middle screen, sandwiched between two jumbo vertical screens that projected Yankee and made him feel like he was standing next to you.

Adding another layer to the already impressive output were the 180 laser beams that made every performance even more impressive.

He also made collaborations that marked his career such as with Visin & Yandel, Ozuna and Luis Fonsi and, while there was no one to perform next to him, he appeared on the big screen, making it feel like that they were in the room a lot.

Yankee was a man of few words during his show but his feelings were tangible. One memorable moment of the night was when he applauded and cheered from the crowd. At one point, Yankee tried to speak, but was suffocated. “If there’s something I’ve always appreciated, it’s the love you’ve given me. You can’t put a price on that,” he said. “Every time I come to perform in L.A. I think That it was all worth it. I will always carry this moment with me.”

At the end of his show, he sang the global hit “Despacito” and explained the importance of the song not only to his life but to music in general. “With this song, we proved that we have come to stay. It changed the music. It is now a song that will go global forever.”

As the end neared, the crowd became even more active, made up of multi-generational groups. Behind me, a family with two little girls was dancing the whole time. His kid sang along to “Bombon” and even danced to the song on the TikTok challenge, while his proud parents recorded the moment with their phones. “We laid the foundation and we stayed,” the Yankees offered. “In every cycle, generation after generation. I’m still here.”

Guessing which song would close the show was less difficult. Of course, the Yankees will end with the all-time, fan favorite reggaeton anthem “Gasolina.” He joked: “It may be expensive, but you still always have to fill your tank.”

In the end, he thanked the fans again for their support and assured them that although this would be his last tour, he would still be present with thanks for his songs. “It’s my goodbye but my music lives on.”

In March, Yankee announced that he was retiring from music. The reggaeton star concludes his musical run with legenddaddyHis first new studio album in 10 years, and the world tour.
