Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi, whose worldwide 2017 hit single “Despacito” became the most watched video on YouTube, was set to perform in the Croatian capital on his World Tour last night.
His show, however, was cancelled just days before it was due to go ahead. The organisers of the Zagreb concert announced that the show would not be going ahead on Sunday 26 November 2017 after a ‘breakdown in communication with the star’s management’.
With between 5,000 and 6,000 tickets only sold for the 24,000 capacity Arena Zagreb venue, there was speculation that a lack of sales was the reason.
Despite the concert being cancelled, Fonsi still arrived in Zagreb and was spotted partying at Opera nightclub in the city.
Fonsi has had a long music career, recording his debut album in 1998. In 2002, Fonsi was the opening act for Britney Spears’ Dream Within a Dream Tour in the US and Mexico. Despacito was the first mostly Spanish-language Hot 100 No.1 in more than 20 years.
