Bad Bunny comes to Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center for his “Most Wanted” tour. The crowd waits in anticipation for the gates to open at 7 p.m.

Leave it to Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny to have three stages, a horse and an exclusive guest, Colombian artist Feid, for his “Most Wanted” tour at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento on March 5, featuring his newest album “Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana.”

Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, performs exclusively in Spanish and is one of the most streamed artists on Spotify. His previous album “Un Verano Sin Ti” was the most streamed album in 2022 and 2023, according to Spotify.

Lined up outside the stadium, many fans wore cowboy boots and hats, fitting in with the album’s theme.

Upon entering the arena, guests were handed a lanyard with a boot pendant hanging on it, which lit up once the concert started.

There were three stages in total: a stage on both sides of the arena and a long rotating platform in the middle, suspended in the air.

The concert was scheduled to start at 8 p.m., but Bad Bunny came out at 9:15 p.m. The crowd seemed to know he was coming out an hour late since that’s what he’s done at his previous shows.

The show opened with a 10-minute performance from an orchestra on the left stage. Bad Bunny appeared on the opposite stage, starting his first act with the song “Nadie Sabe,” wearing a black suit and a scarf covering his face.

He transitioned to the song “Monaco,” taking off his scarf and jumping around the stage. Fireworks erupted and smoke shot out of the stage floor. Laser lights lit up the stadium and everyone’s boot pendants were glowing in sync with the show.

Back-up dancers came out for a handful of songs, the choreography intense, yet not taking the attention away from Bad Bunny. He never joined in with the choreography except when the dancers crawled over him, smoke covering the stage so that he could disappear beneath the floor to start the second act.

The crowd erupted in screams and soon they started to chant “Benito! Benito! Benito!”

After a few minutes, the lights brightened and Bad Bunny appeared on the other side of the stadium wearing a blue cowboy suit and riding a brown horse, replicating his album cover.

The crowd went wild over the horse, most of them in disbelief. The horse appeared for less than five minutes and was led away as Bad Bunny made his way to the stage.

Bad Bunny performed his second act, all throw-back songs, with no back-up dancers or props, just him and the stage. As he rapped, he took the time to wave to fans and thanked Sacramento multiple times saying “¡Gracias Sacramento!” with a hand over his heart.

He made his way to the middle stage, using it as a bridge between the other two stages. The platform rose and rotated, bringing him closer to fans that were sitting higher up and suspending him in the air above the fans in the pit.

There were a few minutes where there was no music, just the screams of fans as Bad Bunny waved and viewed the crowd on both sides of the platform. All the fans waved back enthusiastically, a lot of them jumping out of excitement.

It was on this platform he performed “Thunder y Lightning,” accompanied by lightning visuals, smoke and lights. This song was one of the most intense in his setlist, the arena rumbling to mimic the sound of thunder.

For his third act, he jumped off the platform onto a piano. He landed back on his first stage and sang “Un x100to,” as a pianist accompanied him.

The crowd of more than 15,000 sang along, swaying to the music until it suddenly stopped, breaking into a more upbeat song.

Bad Bunny continued with songs from his recent album in the third act, performing on the first stage he originally started the show with.

Then, he brought out his guest.

Hopping up the stairs and onto the stage was the Colombian singer Feid who collaborated on the song “Perro Negro,” featured on Bad Bunny’s most recent album.

The whole arena glowed green, Feid’s signature color, and the two artists sang two songs together. Most of the crowd pulled out their phones to document the exclusive moment.

After Feid left the stage, Bad Bunny sang a few more songs and wrapped up his performance with confetti shooting out on both sides of the arena and falling on the crowd below.

Bad Bunny’s energy and passion was felt throughout the arena, the crowd reciprocating the same passion as they would sing along, scream and chant his name.

Until next time, Benito.
