Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias are going on tour together, and cue the nostalgia.
If your childhood memories include dancing around your living room to Livin’ La Vida Loca or belting out all the words to Hero, first of all: we can be friends.
And secondly, you will be as excited about this news as I am: Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias are going on tour together this year.
The Grammy-winning stars are teaming up for an arena tour in North America beginning on 5 September in Phoenix and running until the end of October.
Iglesias’s hits include Hero, Escape, Bailando, I Like It and Tonight and he has a new album due out later this year. You’ll remember Martin from his biggest song She Bangs, as well as The Cup Of Life and Vente Pa’ Ca. Her has a new album due later this year.

Any tips for bagging tickets?
- If you’re using a laptop or iPad, make sure it’s on charge. Ensure you have the exact card and address details to hand.
- Tickets are not reserved until you enter your details so you’ll want to nominate someone who’s quick at typing.
- Don’t make the fatal mistake of trying to book using multiple browser tabs as this can upset the system. This is because most web browsers do not create a separate user session per tab – information is shared between all tabs for any given website. Open one tab, and persevere.
- While it may be advised not to use more than one tab in a single browser, apparently using multiple browsers could be a wiser course of action. Think Chrome, Mozilla and Internet Explorer all open on one window (and one tab only).
- If you’re able to join the virtual queue using multiple devices (think your phone, computer and tablet), then by all means give it a go to boost your chances of obtaining tickets.
- Check how many tickets you are allowed to buy in one purchase. If you try to buy more than the limited number, your booking may be cancelled without notice, meaning nobody gets to go.
