If we're talking fight metaphors here – and the Kingdom Tour is definitely going all-in with the boxing imagery – we'd be up there in the realm of Ali-Frazier: That's how big of a deal the pairing of Daddy Yankee and Don Omar on one stage, for one night, is. Yankee vs. Omar, the thrilla in the Amway! Whose style of reggaeton will reign supreme? In a market of increasingly bloated ticket prices for big concerts, this show boasts a hell of a lot of bang for your buck. In one corner is Daddy Yankee, he of "Gasolina" fame, and Barrio Fino, the album that lodged reggaeton firmly in the mainstream. In the other corner is Don Omar, the firebrand behind the "Reggaeton Latino" anthem and the influential King of Kings album. Is it a cliché if we say that the only winner here is the fans?

8 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 7 | Amway Center, 400 W. Church St. | 407-440-7000 | | $19-$159
