The Latin superstar will close the 2018 edition of the Dubai Jazz Festival.
Wanna get upside inside out? Then we have some very good news for you.
Puerto Rican superstar Ricky Martin is coming to the city for the Dubai Jazz Festival, where he’ll play on the last night of the three-day musical extravaganza.
Night one will be headlined by British synth-pop band and ’80s heroes Duran Duran, while soulful crooner and All of Me star John Legend will play on the second day.
The festival, which will be held at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre between February 21 and 23, will mark Martin’s first-ever performance in Dubai (wahey!).
The former boybander, who first found fame aged 12 as part of pop group Menudo, performs in both English and Spanish.
His most famous track (in our humble opinion) is probably this number, which we’re already looking forward to boogying to:
Just the 179 million views for that one…
Martin’s other hits include Maria, She Bangs, Private Emotion and Nobody Wants to be Lonely, with 10 albums (of which more than 70 million copies have been sold) and a Las Vegas residency under his belt.
The 45-year-old has also garnered plenty of awards in his decades-long career, including two Grammys, multiple MTV Music Awards, and he’s got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Martin is particularly beloved in his home nation, where August 31 is officially International Ricky Martin Day.
Early bird tickets for his one-night-only show will be available between 12pm on Thursday December 14 and 12pm on Saturday December 16 from the festival’s official website.
The advanced tickets start from Dhs300 for general admission, whereas the regular price will be Dhs375.
You’ll find us getting in the mood by playing this on repeat all morning…
