Miami’s Pitbull is heading out on his “Mr. Worldwide’s Carnaval” tour but he will not make any stops in Phoenix. The artist known as Mr. 305 will do this protest Arizona’s new, controversial immigration law.
“I am canceling my concert in Phoenix on May 31… How is the country we enjoy and love bcuz of its human rights, freedom, opportunity and that has been built by immigrants, now start 2 deny them??.. It is contradicting 2 everything the USA stands 4,” he announced on his Twitter page.
He will begin this “Worldwide” tour on May 25 and it will go through the end of June.
He isn’t alone in doing this. Cypress Hill and others have also canceled shows due to this law. Pitbull is prepping the release of his first Spanish-only album, Armando, a tip of the hat to his real name Armando Perez. Fans can expect that album in the summer and another album, PlanetPit, in the Fall.
