Last night proved to be one for the Lanzarote history books as an estimated 50,000 people sang through the night. The arrival of Luis Fonsi on Lanzarote came as a surprise, and to have such a big star on the island was a treat for all.

During the concert, which lasted approximately 1h 30/45 minutes, the Puerto Rican singer treated the large audience to some of his biggest hits including “Despacito” which has garnered nearly 8 billion views on YouTube since the release.

Additionally, the night ended with no incidents as Arrecife tightened its police presence for the arrival of such a star – a collaborative effort between the local police, Guardia Civil and the national police.

If you attended the free concert, we hope you had a great time. We know we did!
