J Balvin coming to the USF Sun Dome in Tampa

J Balvin just had himself a mighty fine Coachella.

On Saturday, he popped out on stage with Beyonce to perform their hit single Mi Gente. And on Sunday, he showed up for Cardi B's set to perform I Like It with Bad Bunny.

Pretty soon, Tampa can get a taste of what the hype is all about.

The Colombian reggaeton superstar is bringing his just-announced Vibras Tour to the USF Sun Dome in Tampa on Oct. 27. Tickets are $56.20 and up. Click here for details.

If you're not yet hip to J Balvin, get ready. He leads this week's Billboard Latin Music Awards with 12 nominations, and will release his next album Vibras on Memorial Day weekend — just in time for some Song-of-Summer consideration.

Don't expect Beyonce or Cardi B to make an appearance at his Tampa show. But Balvin's getting big enough that he might not need their co-signs much longer.
