Live Gallery: J Balvin – O2 Arena, London

A blockbuster performance...

J Balvin’s ascension as a global icon is assured. A string of albums – culminating in 2021 blockbuster ‘Jose’ – have paved the way, packing out venues on every single continent.

Even by his own standards, however, the Colombian star’s Que Bueno Volver a Verte Tour is a monument to his star status. Hitting London for a long-since sold out show at the O2 Arena, J Balvin’s performance comes as fans eagerly wait for his forthcoming collaborative record with Ed Sheeran.

There’s an international flavour to the show, with J Balvin forever reaching outwards. The universal quality is backed by some lavish visuals, with the Colombian artist at the front and centre of it all.
