Bad Bunny ended WWE WrestleMania weekend with a bang on Sunday by announcing a 2022 world tour. 

Following his impressive debut at this weekend’s WrestleMania 37, the reggaeton star announced El Último Tour del Mundo 2022 (The Last World Tour 2022) — named for his 2020 album of the same name.

The announcement video, which Bad Bunny shared on Instagram, features WWE star Triple H — who praised the artist for his “incredibly hard work and grind” in preparation for his pro wrestling performance. 

“You did amazing at WrestleMania but now, it’s time for you to do what you do,” Triple H tells the singer in the announcement video, before handing him a yellow suitcase.

“Thanks,” Bad Bunny responds, before walking away to open the suitcase which holds a microphone in the shape of a skull. It is later revealed that the suitcase reads “Tour 2022” on its side.  

“POR FIN!!! ESTÁN LISTOS??? (Finally! Are y’all ready?)” Bad Bunny captioned the video on Instagram.

The “Booker T” singer’s world tour dates range from February to April across North America. Tickets go on sale April 16. 

“El Último Tour del Mundo” was the third of three albums Bad Bunny released last year. It followed “YHLQMDLG” and “Las Que No Iban a Salir.”

The 27-year-old singer won the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop or Urban Album this year for “YHLQMDLG.” He also performed “Dákiti” featuring Jhay Cortez at the Grammy Awards.

Bad Bunny’s world tour announcement comes after major concerts begin to start again following the coronavirus pandemic halt. 

Last week, Andrea Bocelli announced a 21-city North American tour starting October. Country singer Kane Brown announced a 35-stop arena tour starting this fall. 

In the first major global tour announced by anyone for 2022, The Weeknd unveiled a new itinerary for his After Hours Tour, originally scheduled for 2020 then postponed amid the pandemic to this year. The “Save Your Tears” singer’s tour is scheduled to launch Jan. 14, 2022, in Vancouver and run through Nov. 16, 2022, in London.
