The last year has been pretty goddamn huge for Ricky Martin.
He released his autobiography in both English and Spanish (titled Me and Yo, respectively) in November of 2010, giving the world a very candid look at the notoriously private superstar's life for the first time. Then, just a few short weeks ago, the Puerto Rican pop singer dropped Musica + Alma + Sexo, his ninth studio production to date.
And of course, there was a small matter of him coming out last March and admitting he was gay.
The international Latin icon continues this streak of milestone moments by announcing a worldwide tour that kicks off with three straight dates in his native P.R. March 25 to 27. Martin will remain on the road through the end of May. And his tour will not only have him crossing the U.S., but it will also take him to Guadalajara, Monterrey, and Montreal.
Not to worry, though, the Miami resident is hitting his hometown early, performing at the American Airlines Arena on Saturday, April 9.
Ricky Martin. Saturday, April 9. American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. The concert begins at 8 p.m. and tickets are being offered in various packages, beginning at $49 for basic seats and going as high as $580 for tix that offer a Meet & Greet. Call 786-777-1000 or visit aaarena.com.
