    "I want to tell you that I am very, very excited," Maluma said to the audience. "Today is the last performance of my European tour, and I want to say that there is no better way to close this tour than here in Israel, this moment will always be in my heart."
    This current visit to Israel is the third for the Latin pop and reggaeton star in Israel.
    Prior to the two performances which took place on Monday and Sunday, Maluma also performed in Israel in 2017 and 2018.

    In an interview with Ynet ahead of the concert, the singer said: "I feel that love changes everything and what we need right now, in our crazy world, is love and a positive attitude and that's what I'm trying to achieve with my music, words, and art".
    "People told me that it might be a mistake to come to Israel and maybe it's a mistake to even go on tour in Europe right now with everything that is happening between Russia and Ukraine, but I'm thinking the exact opposite.
    "What we need right now is a positive message, to show more love and that's my message to the world - to try and change the negative energy through music."
