“We are always looking for giving not only a good experience but a memory of a lifetime,” said Eduardo Cajina, General Manager.
“Our team works hard in creating world-class experiences for concerts and events. Being continuously ranked among the Top 30 venues after almost 13 years is the best reward we can receive since it gives us the energy to continue the hard work to put Puerto Rico’s name as a world-class entertainment place,” he said.
During the first half of 2017, the Choliseo has hosted artists such as Tommy Torres, Maná, Justin Bieber, Miguel Bose, Disney on Ice, Sting, Ednita Nazario, Ed Sheeran, WWE, One Republic, among many others.
