LAUGHLIN—Pitbull will be taking the stage at the Laughlin Event Center on Saturday, May 19 and there is still time to get your tickets.

The concert will start at 8 p.m. with gates opening at 6 p.m.

This will be the first widely famous rapper to ever come to Laughlin and an estimated 20,000 people are expected to fill the stadium, as this concert is almost sold out.

From Mr. 305 to Mr. Worldwide, Armando Perez, aka Pitbull, rose to fame from the streets of Miami to exemplify the American Dream. He has achieved more success then anyone could dream of with his relentless work ethic that helped make him a Grammy-winning global superstar and business man.

Pitbull has hit the number one spot on the Billboard charts in over 12 countries, has had over 60 million single sales and five million album sales.

Does he stop there? No. Pitbull has sold out worldwide tours, not just in the United States, but also in North and South America, Europe and the far East.

In just two weeks, Pitbull will be hitting the stage in our community and it’ll be a night to remember.
