Ricky Martin Live in Dubai on 23 Feb 2018 at Dubai Jazz Festival

Previously, it was Latin pop sensation Enrique Iglesias and sultry diva Mariah Carey who headlined the Dubai Jazz Festival. This time around, another international singer will hit the stage during the 16th edition of the annual event: Grammy Award winner Ricky Martin!

Ricky Martin is known for his chart-topping hits: “Living La Vida Loca, “She Bangs,” and “The Cup of Life,” to name a few. Fans can catch him on the third day of the Dubai Jazz Festival, which will be held on February 21 – 23, 2018 at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.

Third Day of Dubai Jazzfest 2018 Featuring Ricky Martin

Martin’s dashing looks, great voice, and swinging hips catapulted him to stardom in the late 1990s. But prior to this, he was already known as part of the Latin boy band, Menudo. And today, he continues to make waves, performing for fans and audiences all over the world.

In 2016, Martin’s single “Vente Pa’ Ca” (Come Here) topped worldwide charts and became one of the biggest hits of the year. Meanwhile, his latest album “A Quien Quiera Escuchar” (To Those Who Want To Hear) won Best Latin Pop Album during last year’s Grammy Awards.
