“It’s a true honor to tour with Enrique and Ricky, two music icons, who broke global music barriers for our culture and open doors for someone like myself,” Pitbull said in a statement, which also quoted Iglesias promising: “It’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime tour.”

F1 didn’t specify ticket information for the shows, presumably since they will accessible only to fans with grandstand or general admission tickets located near the stage.

No Clarkson Tour

Kelly Clarkson took to Instagram on Friday to quash rumors that her summer stint at Planet Hollywood’s Bakkt Theater will kick off a full tour.

“Here’s the thing,” she said. “This is why I announced the 10 shows in Vegas. I was not being like, ‘Oh, it’s a secret. We’ve really got this huge tour we’re gonna do right after.’”

Clarkson reminded fans that she has a “9-to-5er” in the form of her daytime talk show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” as well as two young children to raise.
