Fans can purchase tickets exclusively through LiveXLive at: http://www.livexlive.com/Pitbull.
LiveXLive will exclusively produce and air two unique global pay-per-view (“PPV”) events with Mr. Worldwide during National Hispanic Heritage Month. These two-time global events will take place on Saturday, October 10th at 8:00 pm ET/5:00 pm PT and Saturday, October 17th at 8:00 pm ET/5:00 pm PT.
In addition, Pitbull will be launching his new podcast ‘Negative to Positive’ on LiveXLive’s leading podcast network, PodcastOne, on September 23rd. With strong advertiser support the podcast and vodcast will kick off with legendary artists such as Flo Rida, Lil Jon and noted producer Uncle Luke aka Luther Campbell from 2 Live Crew.
This livestream PPV performance is an experience that will allow fans from all over the world to dance and party in their living rooms or backyards while enjoying a safe viewing of the global sensation, Mr. Worldwide. With two unique events filling your home with music, a major dance party and the joy of Pitbull’s performance, each show will have unique setlists as well as additional surprises. The events will be streamed from Pitbull’s SLAM! Charter School in Miami. Pitbull has created over 10 charter schools around the country with an integrated academic approach focusing on Sports, Leadership, Arts and Management in a general learning environment primarily focusing on underserved youth. Pre-COVID, it was Pitbull’s intention to host these events as a graduate and teacher appreciation celebration.
The full performance on LiveXLive will include a variety of ticket options including merch, as well as a package to view both shows. Premium tiered pricing includes exclusive merchandise, a package including tickets to both performances and other event-exclusive perks. Ticket prices start at $14.99 with bundles available for both shows and exclusive merch starting today on LiveXLive.com.

We are going to get loose, wild and off the chain, Dale!”
