Ontario, CA (April 10, 2019) – On the heels of his highly-successful tour, GRAMMY-nominated rapper-songwriter and Latin music’s “King of Trap,” Bad Bunny, is announcing the extension of his North American X100PRE Tour Presented by Corona Estéreo Beach.

The high-energy tour, which still has upcoming shows in markets like Orlando, Los Angeles and New York City among others, has received praise from critics, with reviews highlighting the 360-degree mappable LED stage that gives his audience views of him from any point in the arena, videos that give a deeper glimpse into his journey of becoming Bad Bunny, and surprise performances from some of Latin music’s hottest artists like J Balvin, Becky G, Farruko and Zion of Zion y Lennox.
As part of the tour partnership with the brand, Corona Estéreo Beach will bring a sensory experience – building a vibe around the mindset of relaxing with friends and creating an energetic environment alongside the reggaeton sounds of Bad Bunny that will gt everyone moving.
“I’m thrilled to have Corona join me on my X100PRE Tour to give my fans a taste of Corona Estéreo Beach and showcase their support of Latin music,” It’s not solely about the music – it’s about the culture, creativity, and contributing to the movement that connects us all together” says Bad Bunny.

“We’re thrilled for Corona Estéreo Beach to go on the road with Bad Bunny on his X100PRE tour this year,” said Ann Legan, Vice President of Brand Marketing, Corona. “As a brand that has been celebrating music for years, the relationship with Bad Bunny allows Corona Extra to continue building equity while reaching a core shared audience with one of the hottest Latin artists out there.”

ABOUT BAD BUNNY:
Bad Bunny, originally from Puerto Rico, is most recognized for his explosive and infectious trap songs.

Cardi B and J Balvin, which reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and has continued to dominate the chart in the top 3 position. He has been nominated to the iHeart Radio Music Award, MTV VMA’s, Latin AMAs, Latin GRAMMYs, and E! People Choice Awards. Earlier this fall, Bad Bunny celebrated being the face of the cover of FADER magazine where the artist boasts a feature story that perfectly recaps his story and properly introduces him to the American market as the Latin trap superstar he has become.

Glen Ivy Hot Springs Reopens with New Leadership, Upgraded Facilities and Record Sales
GOCO Hospitality, the dedicated global wellness consulting, development, and management company, continues the revitalization of Glen Ivy Hot Springs to create the ultimate West Coast wellness destination. Reopening late January 2022 following a $2.5 million property-wide enhancement project, Glen Ivy Hot Springs welcomed a new General Manager, Hervé Blondel, whose most recent role was General Manager at the internationally acclaimed Rancho La Puerta, fitness resort and spa in Mexico, to further enhance the guest experience.
“Strong leadership is the key to Glen Ivy Hot Springs’ continued growth and development,” commented Ingo Schweder, CEO of GOCO Hospitality and Glen Ivy Hot Springs. “Hervé’s 30 years of experience at top wellness destinations complements GOCO’s expert leadership team of multidisciplinary professionals.”
Hervé Blondel joins GOCO Hospitality’s team of seasoned, global wellness experts with decades of experience at the most exclusive resorts worldwide. Prior to founding GOCO Hospitality, Ingo Schweder was co-owner and head of development at award-winning destination wellness resort, Ananda in the Himalayas. GOCO Hospitality also developed and managed the highly regarded and award-winning SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain.
