Ricky Martin has answered the social media siren of his Australian fans and will shake his bon bon on our arena stages in October.
The wildly popular coach on The Voice told fans earlier this month he would return for his first tour in 13 years if they made their demands for shows via Twitter.
The national run has been in the works since the Latin heart-throb signed up to replace Keith Urban as a coach for the reality series' second season. Ricky negotiated with Nine Live, the network's touring arm, to promote the tour.
Fans have been hanging for Ricky to strut his stuff on stage since the show started airing last month, the popular Latin performer barely satisfying his legion of loyal admirers with the coaches' performances of Muse's Uprising and Rihanna's Diamonds.
Ricky has promised he will showcase new songs as well as the favourites from his recent Greatest Hits Souvenir Edition, which has achieved gold status in six weeks.
"This is the first time in more than a decade that I will be back on tour, live, in Australia. I am looking forward to singing all my greatest hits and some special new material that I can't wait to share with you all," Ricky said. "I'm ready to leave my soul on stage."
Visa customers can buy tickets from noon tomorrow via visaentertainment.com.au, while general tickets go on sale on June 3 from noon.
Ricky will open his tour in Melbourne on October 5. He will lob in Adelaide on October 10 to play the Adelaide Entertainment Centre before heading to Perth, Brisbane and Sydney.
