The Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot has celebrated a milestone by welcoming its 10 millionth visitor.
The 18,500-cap venue, which opened in 2004, has hosted artists such as The Rolling Stones, Usher, Beyoncé, Aerosmith, Andrea Bocelli and Bad Bunny.
The arena’s operator ASM Global surprised customer Melanie Biringer-Figueroa with the news of being the 10,000,000th visitor as she entered the venue on Saturday (21 May) to see a concert by Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Tommy Torres.
She received gifts including a holiday to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and gift baskets with a variety of products, among other surprises.
