Latin music fans, get ready, because this is your chance to really live la vida loca. Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias are teaming up for a joint tour in fall 2020!
Starting in September, Iglesias and Martin will travel the United States performing beloved hits like “Bailando,” “I Like It,” “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and “She Bangs,” as well as new music.
Ricky Martin announced the exciting news on his Instagram page, where it quickly garnered hundreds of thousands of likes:
The tour begins Sept. 5 in Phoenix and will make stops in Chicago, Orlando, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Boston, Dallas, Toronto, Miami and other cities before making a final stop Oct. 30 in Atlanta. The ticket presale is happening right now, and you can find tickets on Ticketmaster.
Iglesias is rumored to drop a new album later in the year, though he no doubt has his hands full as a dad of three. Iglesias and Anna Kournikova just announced the name of their newest addition to the family, Mary, who was born in January.
Fatherhood is a common bond between Iglesias and Martin, who is the father of four. The singers have also been frank about their concerns about touring and the threat of coronavirus, but they aren’t going to let fear stop them reaching their fans.
“We’re going to wash our hands a lot,” Iglesias said, according to ABC 13. “A lot.” Martin echoed.
“We’re concerned, but we’re not going to stop our lives,” Martin added.
Iglesias and Martin have been friends for a long time and are glad to be planning a tour together. “We always spoke and we always stayed in contact and we thought that this would happen at some point,” Iglesias said at a press conference, according to Grammy.com. “We didn’t know exactly when, and I think we are in that point in our lives and our careers. We’re going to have fun.”
Colombian singer Sebastian Yatra will join the tour as a special guest performer.
You can purchase tickets on March 11 starting at 10 a.m. local time on Live Nation.
