NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 11/19/15 -- JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU), the largest carrier in Puerto Rico offering up to 52 daily flights to the island, today announces the first JetBlue LIVE concert experience in San Juan. In partnership with MasterCard and Banco Santander, JetBlue is providing an exclusive pop-up performance featuring popular Puerto Rican singer/songwriter and actor -- Pedro Capo. This concert, sponsored by the Santander JetBlue MasterCard, will take place on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 4:30 p.m. at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) in San Juan, one of JetBlue's six focus cities. This concert will be available exclusively to lucky travelers, select Santander JetBlue MasterCard cardmembers and contest winners selected by Pedro Capo.
JetBlue LIVE is JetBlue's signature live music platform and includes the airline's award-winning Live From T5 Concert Series. This will be the third JetBlue LIVE concert held outside of T5 at JFK Airport in New York. This also marks the first show in Puerto Rico. Past JetBlue LIVE concerts have featured Lady Antebellum and Gary Clark, Jr.
A modern-day renaissance man, Pedro Capo has starred in major motion pictures, performed in hit theatrical productions, wrote widely-acclaimed songs for award-winning international superstars including Ricky Martin and Ednita Nazario and boasts seven #1 radio singles in Puerto Rico. This concert will serve as a homecoming for Pedro. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, he lives a life of free-thinking and inspiration. He's the grandson of famous Puerto Rican singer Bobby Capo and son of the well-remembered singer and founder of the Salsa nueva trova, also named Bobby Capo. Pedro is the third in a family of tradition that left its stamp on Latin music and Puerto Rican culture.
"We are excited to expand our JetBlue LIVE platform to incorporate additional JetBlue focus cities and provide this exclusive experience to even more customers," said Chan Tran, social media and content analyst, JetBlue. "JetBlue provides the most seats to Puerto Rico, so bringing this concert series to San Juan and collaborating with Puerto Rico native Pedro Capo was the perfect fit. Pedro Capo is characteristic of the vibrancy of Puerto Rico. His music reflects an intersection of love and life. Much like JetBlue, he seeks to inspire others through his work with forward-thinking messages."
