Calvin Harris in Puerto Rico

We rode our electric bicycles through downtown San Juan, Puerto Rico

and I swear it was a sign every time we passed by a Calvin Harris promotional poster on the side of buildings, poles, and literally everywhere else. Calvin Harris is one of those top DJs who plays really fun music. Before touchdown in P.R. I had scoured the internet for concert listings and found zip.

Just our luck. By nightfall we took a cap to the stadium itself because tickets could no longer be sold online the same day of the show. The only other options were stopping by Wal-Mart or another supermarket of which both were nearly equally far away. We went down to the stadium to buy from scalpers but asked some random guy who actually happened to be the promoter. That’s what happens when you get there hours beforehand. He signaled for his assistant to come back with a couple tickets and we paid him in cash. Score!

For the next couple of hours we wandered through highway underpasses, inside extravagant ocean side clubs, and the occasional supermarket to pass the time. Our walk back to the stadium featured myself with a bottle of the local Don-Q rum in hand. Just in time for the main act we danced and sang along to Harris’s top hits.

What a show it was. Pictured in the video below is both myself and my travel buddy.

I feel so close to you right now
It’s a force field
I wear my heart upon my sleeve, like a big deal
Your love pours down on me, surrounds me like a waterfall
And there’s no stopping us right now
I feel so close to you right now

(dance beat plays)

I feel so close to you right now
It’s a force field
I wear my heart upon my sleeve, like a big deal

Your love pours down on me, surrounds me like a waterfall
And there’s no stopping us right now
I feel so close to you right now

(dance beat plays)

And there’s no stopping us right now

And there’s no stopping us right now

And there’s no stopping us right now

I feel so close to you right now…
