Seventeen years went by without visiting the Colombian capital. The Latin pop singer Enrique Martín Morales, artistically known as Ricky Martin, arrived in Colombia to offer two concerts at the Movistar Arena in Bogotá on November 23 and 24. The 50-year-old Puerto Rican, also a Spanish national, will delight his fans with hits such as 'Livin' la vida loca', 'Vuelve', 'María', 'Vente pa' ca' o < b>'La mordidita', among others.

A few hours ago, a video was released by the organizers in which the singer is seen stepping on Colombian soil and sending a greeting to all the fans who hope to see him for two nights that promise nostalgia and energy.

Ricky Martin will present his most recent production in Bogotá, the EP 'Play' , which includes songs like 'Acido Sabor', 'Another Night in L.A.', 'A Veces Bien y A Veces Mal', in which he shows his ability to stay current in an industry as demanding and with as many changes as the Latin market.

The singer, who began in music as a member of the youth group Menudo and who became a soloist since 1991, will arrive at the Movistar Arena in Bogotá on the next 23 and 24 november. Originally it would only be one concert, the one on the 24th, but due to the speed with which the tickets sold out, he opened a second performance for the 23rd.

Although Ricky Martin has not appeared in Bogotá for 17 years, he had already visited Colombia on more recent occasions. Seven years ago, he performed at the Barranquilla Carnival Metroconcierto in 2020, and also performed at the Vallenato Legend Festival in 2018.

According to the official page that is in charge of ticket sales for the concerts, both presentations will begin at 8:00 p.m. m. The public will be able to enter the venue starting at 5:00 p.m. m.

'When I am in Colombia my music will be there to dance to it'

This Tuesday the artist gave an interview to the program ' 10AM Hoy Por Hoy' on Caracol Radio as a prelude to his two concerts. He expressed his happiness to return to Bogotá and assured that he also loved ajiaco, that he wishes he had free time to explore the city:

“I hope to have several days off so I can go out in the city a bit and visit some friends who live there, but at the same time I don't want to have high expectations, I'm open to surprises and I don't want them to tell me, I want to experience it and that's what I will do when I visit Colombia”

The artist also assured that a complete party awaited those attending his two concerts:

“What is coming is a good party, obviously uniting all the cultures that have accompanied me through the years with my music, it is a sure success, in the sense that everyone is going to have a good time, we will remember old times, but we will dance a lot at the same time”

During the talk, he took the opportunity to talk about his most recent production, 'Play':

“My thing It's dancing because I come from the Caribbean, so there's no excuse, they play any song for me, even if it's a ballad, and I dance to it. It's an incredible thing when I go into the studio and you open the door to inspiration, you don't know what's going to happen and this with “Play” was a big surprise because I thought the album was going to be something like a carnival. I call, looking for all those rhythms that always make us dance, that I take to the stage at all times, but it was not the case. I went into the studio and actually what came out were very romantic things and I'm not going to fight with the muse. Obviously, when I'm in Colombia my music will be there to dance to”
