Exciting news is coming out of Vegas today. Not only will the Strip welcome Grammy Award-winning artist Ricky Martin, but it will do so in the brand new Park Theater at Monte Carlo on April 5, 2017. Park Theater will complement the recently opened T-Mobile Arena, the adjacent two-acre Toshiba Plaza and The Park.
The 5,200-seat venue will offer state-of-the-art audio and visual technology and excellent seating allowing guests to feel up close to the artists and performers. Park Theater will host a variety of entertainment from comedy shows to awards shows, sporting events and live concerts, like you’ll see with Ricky Martin in 2017.

“This is an exciting time for MGM Resorts as we add multiple GRAMMY Award-winner and international superstar Ricky Martin to our tremendous Park Theater and The Theater at MGM National Harbor entertainment lineup in 2017,” said Bill Hornbuckle, president of MGM Resorts International in a statement. “Ricky is one of the most talented, high-energy performers in the world and we look forward to a long-term relationship with him as he brings his new shows to our two venues.”
Martin’s one-of-a-kind show will be led by legendary director Jamie King, who previously directed Martin’s 2007 Black and White Tour, and 1999 Livin’ La Vida Loca Tour. The show will include his greatest hits
“I’m extremely excited to have my residency in Las Vegas; I have been thinking about it for years and to see it become a reality is just an unbelievable feeling. I’ve dedicated my entire life to the stage, and there is nothing I want more than to create the best show of my career and make it an unforgettable experience for each person that comes to see me at the incredible Park Theater at Monte Carlo. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to be able to share my culture through music while creating an exciting atmosphere where you have no choice but to have the best time, to dance and sing until we all forget our problems, to let go and be completely free...this new show will not be the exception. I'm inspired, and I can't wait to show you what we have in store,” said Ricky Martin in a statement.
Martin will perform May 5 and 6 at MGM Resorts’ new entertainment venue on the East Coast, The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Maryland.
