Ricky Martin announces Las Vegas residency

Ricky Martin is "really happy" that he gets to share his music with thousands of fans during a Las Vegas residency.

Ricky Martin is heading to Las Vegas for a residency.

The 44-year-old singer, who has been delighting fans with his music since he was just 12 years old, is now set to follow in the footsteps of stars including Elton John, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears by performing a series of shows in Sin City.

Ricky made the announcement on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which airs on Wednesday (16Nov16).

“I’m going to be in Vegas! I have a residency in Vegas. Yes, yes, yes!” he said. “I’m really happy."

The Livin' La Vida Loca star then said "You're all invited!", with Ellen going on to explain that each member of the audience would get tickets to go and see Ricky perform in Vegas as well as a two-night stay at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.

Details of the residency's location have yet to be revealed, but tickets go on sale on Monday (21Nov16).

Ricky has been kept busy in recent months with his One World tour supporting his tenth studio album A Quien Quiera Escuchar, released in February 2015.

After kicking things off in Auckland, New Zealand, in April that year, his last concert is scheduled for 15 December (16) in Queretaro City, Mexico.

It was also recently announced that Ricky is set to be one of the headliners at the upcoming Calibash Las Vegas show, one of the premier events for urban Latin music in America.

He will be joined by stars including Don Omar, Wisin, Nicky Jam and Residente as he takes to the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 26 January (17).
