The son of Spanish heartthrob Julio Iglesias has come a long way since stepping out of his father’s shadow in the mid-90s. As of October 2020, Enrique Iglesias holds the number-one position on the Greatest of All-Latin Artists charts. He also holds the record for the most number-one songs on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart and has 14 number one hits on Billboard’s Dance charts, more than any other male artist. Enrique will be touring in support of his forthcoming studio album, which is due in September.
A former member of teenage pop group Menudo, Ricky Martin exploded onto the pop charts as a solo artist in 1991, becoming one of the best-selling Latin music artists of all time with over 70 million records sold worldwide. In his long career, Ricky has received more than 200 awards, including 2 Grammy Awards and has been nominated for an Emmy Award for his work in The Assassination of Gianni Versace. Ricky surprised fans in 2020 by releasing a six-track EP, featuring collaborations with Sting, Carla Morrison, Pedro Capó and Diego El Cigala.
“To say we are going on tour has lifted all of our spirits after the profoundly difficult year the world has gone through and still is,” Ricky said in a statement. “Myself and my entire crew are very excited to bring our best live show safely all over the U.S. and Canada, and let the music bring the healing power and happiness that we all need. I’m also ecstatic to be sharing the stage with my friends Enrique Iglesias and Sebastián Yatra, it’s going to be a blast. Can’t wait! See you all very soon. Get ready to party!”
