After a successful concert three years ago at the Kukulcan stadium, Ricky Martin returns to Merida on Oct. 31 with new show that will be performed in a new stadium.

Now a “coach” on the TV program “The Voice,” the pop star will reconnect with fans at Coliseo Yucatán, which opened to the public this past February.

Martin is touring his “One World” show across Mexico beginning Oct. 3 in Mexico City and Guadalajara. After Merida, the Puerto Rican-born Grammy winner will continue on to Villahermosa, Querétaro, Puebla, Aguascalientes, Torreón and San Luis Potosi.

His hit song “Vida,” released this year, got more than 17 million hits on YouTube.
