PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Bad Bunny's concert scheduled for Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center Friday will proceed as scheduled. 

The timing of the show, part of the Latin trap and reggaeton artist's "Most Wanted" tour, was up in the air when the Philadelphia 76ers entered the NBA Play-In Tournament. Because the Sixers defeated the Miami Heat Wednesday night, the team's next game is Saturday in New York against the Knicks.

If the Sixers had lost Wednesday's game, they would have played at home Friday night. 

In that scenario, Bad Bunny's concert in Philadelphia would have been moved to Thursday.

The show will be Bad Bunny's first appearance in Philadelphia since headlining the Made in America Festival in September 2022.  

Bad Bunny was the most-streamed artist on Spotify for three years in a row, from 2020 to 2022, before he was upstaged by Berks County native Taylor Swift in 2023.
