It may be nearly winter in Vancouver right now, but downtown's Rogers Arena will be full of Latin heat soon.
One unusual element of this tour is its lack of opening act; with three legendary headliners all getting their own set there's no one to warm up the crowd.
The order of performance has changed up from show to show. Sometimes Pitbull is first, followed by Iglesias and then Martin closing the show. At others, Martin is first, followed by Pitbull and then Iglesias. The schedule for the Vancouver shows has not been announced.
Doors for the concert open at 7 p.m.
Lots of tickets are available for both shows, but the vast majority for both are in the wings directly left or right of the stage in the lower bowl; it's not always a popular angle from which to watch a concert.
Beyond that, there are lots of tickets being sold through Ticketmaster's resale program, especially for the Monday show, but they're not cheap. A single ticket on the floor is likely to cost more than $500 or even $600 (that said, the original tickets in some cases were around $600 on the floor).
Those looking for a deal on a ticket should look at the Monday show, with some seats still as low at $86.75 and a fair number still available for under $150. The cheapest ticket for the Sunday, Dec. 10 show is $178.50 and there are only two; otherwise, it's nearly $200.
A reminder about tickets in general; screenshots won't be accepted, they'll need the moving barcode of the original.
TransLink has not announced any additional service for the night. Given that the show is at Rogers Arena there won't be a Canucks game going on at the same time, and BC Place isn't hosting anything those two nights, so it won't be the busiest night in the neighbourhood.
For those using the SkyTrain to head south, there may be delays. In Richmond, Capstan Station construction means the Richmond-Brighouse segment of the Canada Line will be closed after 9:30 p.m.; instead, a bus bridge will be offered.
Hullo will be doing a late-night sailing to Nanaimo on Sunday night for the show, but not on Monday. Hullo ships leave from the seaplane dock in Vancouver. Harbour.
A few things aren't allowed in Rogers Arena for the show. Notably, some bags won't be permitted; all bags need to be under 35.5 cm by 35.5 cm by 15.2 cm. For reference, 35.5 cm is just a bit over 13 inches.
Rogers Arena is also a smoke-free zone, as far as cigarettes and cannabis are concerned. The band may have smoke machines.
Other common sense items are to be left at home as well, like skateboards, selfie sticks, and outside food and drinks.
Rogers Arena has gone cashless.
"Concession, retail stands, & hospitality will exclusively accept contactless forms of payment," states the venue's website.
Rogers Arena has a fan service number to text if there are any issues during the show: 604-765-3267.
Concertgoers can text their issue and their location (seat number and row along with the section) and get help.
