This morning, Summerfest filled its final Marcus Amphitheater headliner spot, announcing that rapper Pitbull – along with special guest Prince Royce – will bring his “The Bad Man Tour” to the Big Gig’s biggest stage on Thursday, June 30.
Over the course of his career, the Latin rap star has scored multiple hit singles, including “Give Me Everything” (featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer), “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho),” “International Love” (featuring Chris Brown), “Back In Time,” “Timber” (featuring Kesha) and “Time of Our Lives” with Ne-Yo. He’s also won two Grammys – one in 2013 and one this current year – and hosted the American Music Awards twice. For those watching the NBA Playoffs, his most recent musical collaboration – “Bad Man” with Robin Thicke, Joe Perry and Travis Barker – has served as TNT’s theme.
Tickets for Pitbull’s show go on sale beginning Saturday, May 14 at 10 a.m. As always, tickets include general Summerfest admission.
