Here’s why you can’t miss J Balvin’s highly-anticipated show at Qudos Bank Arena

Set to grace Qudos Bank Arena’s iconic stage for a one-night-only show on Friday, 6 September, Colombian singer J Balvin will deliver an unmissable set. Heading Down Under as part of his Que Bueno Volver a Verte Tour (It’s Good To See You Tour), J Balvin has tapped a special guest for the show and will come armed with an arsenal of his biggest chart-topping hits. The excitement around the pop phenom’s Sydney show is already at a fever pitch, but here are five reasons why you need to get yourself to Qudos Bank Arena on the 6 September.

No-skip setlist

It goes without saying, but J Balvin’s discography is reason enough to see him live. Of course, there’s his staple, billion-streamed hits like ‘Mi Gente’ and ‘LA CANCIÓN’, but the singer’s catalogue also spans five studio albums and collaborations with the likes of Dua Lipa, Cardi B, and Justin Bieber. With such an illustrious catalogue, it’s no wonder J Balvin has sold 35 million records worldwide, and why he’s rightfully crowned the “Prince of Reggaeton”. Sydneysiders simply must bask in this pop royalty come September 6.

Proven stage presence

It’s one thing to have a catalogue of bangers to your name, but bringing them to life with live shows and stage presence is another story. Thankfully, J Balvin has proven to deliver on the latter in spades, having headlined the world’s biggest festivals and embarked on international tours spanning more than 30 dates. More recently, J Balvin appeared at both last year’s Splendour In The Grass and Coachella 2024, the latter of which wowed revellers with a surprise cameo by Will Smith. With such a voluminous tour history under his belt, J Balvin will undoubtedly outdo himself with his Qudos Bank Arena show.  

Phenomenal stage production

Renowned for his themed sets, J Balvin pairs his stage presence with phenomenal live performance production. At Coachella, the singer opted for an alien, galaxy-themed set, which naturally sent his performance into the stratosphere. J Balvin spares no expense when it comes to lighting, sound and stage design, donning elaborate costumes and going toe-to-toe alongside his backup dancers with high-energy choreography. It’s what makes his shows an unmissable experience, and Qudos Bank Arena is sure to accommodate all his wildest visions later this year.

Palpable crowd energy

Have you met better dancers than Colombian music fans? The answer is probably no, and given that J Balvin’s 2023 Australian shows sold out in under 10 minutes, his upcoming performance will be chock-full with an energetic crowd like no other. Qudos Bank Arena is unique in that it maintains an intimate feel while still housing thousands of people, so where better to get up close and personal with J Balvin alongside legions of fellow fans?

Sofi Tukker

If your dancing shoes weren’t already worn out by J Balvin himself, then special guest Sofi Tukker will have them reach the point of no return. The Grammy-nominated duo — who are stars in their own right with smash hits like ‘Purple Hat’ and ‘Drinkee’ — will kick off festivities as the openers of J Balvin’s Qudos Bank Arena show. The electronic duo will come equipped with their most recent album, ‘WET TENNIS’, and their technicoloured aesthetic will be more than enough to dazzle audiences ahead of the main event.
