'Despacito' singer Luis Fonsi sets Smart Financial Centre date
You've danced to it, listened to it and sung along with it for months. Now, Luis Fonsi is bringing worldwide hit "Despacito" to the Houston area.
He performs Sept. 17 at Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land as part of his Love + Dance World Tour. Tickets are $59.50-$125 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday [June 22] via Ticketmaster.
"Despacito" featuring Daddy Yankee has topped the Billboard Hot 100 for five weeks, thanks in large part to an assist from Justin Bieber.
Fonsi has been releasing albums since 1998. He's scored several Spanish-language hits, including "Imaginame sin ti," "Abrazar la vida" and "No me doy por vencido."
