Colombian Reggaeton star J Balvin will perform at Abu Dhabi Showdown week
Colombian singer J Balvin is set to raggaeton his way to Abu Dhabi and will play at The Arena, Yas Island’s brand new indoor venue, on September 5 as part of Abu Dhabi Showdown Week.

He has been the #1 global artist on that video platform for the last six weeks.
The concert will mark Balvin’s UAE debut as he finishes off the two-night Abu Dhabi Showdown Week ultimate concert series, which also includes a performance by superstar rockers the Red Hot Chili Peppers on 4 September.
A special early bird sale for Balvin’s concert starts on Monday,19 August from 12pm.
