The Phillip & Patricia Frost Museum of Science is debuting a laser light show set to the music of Bad Bunny. The planetarium has been hosting laser shows set to popular music for decades.

The Bad Bunny-themed show will feature laser lights designed to compliment hits like “Tití Me Preguntó,” “La Noche de Anoche,” “Ojitos Lindos,” and “Callaíta.” Attendees will be given 3D glasses to make the light show even more exciting. When the Frost Planetarium reopened after construction and relocation in 2017, they added several modern artists, like Taylor Swift, Daft Punk, and K-pop groups, to their laser show rotation. The Bad Bunny show will take place on Friday, January 12, with a show dedicated to The Weeknd and one set to movie soundtracks. The planetarium’s programming also includes classic favorites, with shows featuring the music of The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Pink Floyd.

After running the laser show every Friday night for several decades, the museum closed for two years between 2015 and 2017 while it relocated to its current building in Maurice A. Ferre Park. The planetarium was upgraded in the move, including 8K projection resolution, a 16-channel sound system, 250 seats, and a 67-foot dome. Frost Planetarium is one of only 13 worldwide with 8K definition – double that of most HD televisions. The dome is tilted forward at 23.5 degrees to fill the line of sight, mimicking an IMAX screen and giving visitors an immersive experience.

Bad Bunny’s music is so popular that Friday’s 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. planetarium shows are already sold out. The Puerto Rican rapper and singer holds several streaming records, including being the first non-English language act to be Spotify’s most streamed artist of the year and having the most streamed album on Spotify. Bad Bunny will visit Miami on his Most Wanted Tour in May 2024. For many, tickets to the tour were well out of their price range, but planetarium tickets – priced at $10 each for adults – are affordable.

Laser Evenings have been a fixture in Miami for many years. The Frost Science Museum, formerly the Miami Science Museum, hosted laser shows for decades set to prog-rock music from bands like Pink Floyd, Jefferson Starship, and Jethro Tull. The laser light show was a local favorite attended by thousands.

The new science center began construction in 2015 as part of a project to reinvent the bayfront area of downtown Miami. Aside from the planetarium, an aquarium was also built from scratch. Construction of the complex ultimately cost $305 million, with Miami-Dade County contributing $160 million in taxpayer money to the project. Several bumps were in the road when building the facility, including funding and legal issues with contractors. The museum opened in 2017 and has been hosting events like Laser Evening.

Laser Evenings are hosted on Friday nights at the Frost Planetarium. Every first Friday of the month, the museum hosts free events.
