RICKY Martin, the most influential Latino musician in the world, delighted the crowd at Marbella’s Starlite festival.

The 42-year-old Puerto Rican – who has sold more than 85 million albums worldwide – wooed his sell-out audience in Spanish and English, kicking off with ‘Come with me tonight’.

Half way through the show, after being treated to ‘She bangs’ and ‘A medio vivir’, more than a few stalwart fans abandoned their seats to flock to the front, getting within metres of the star.

One lucky fan even got a kiss on both cheeks from the notorious playboy of Latin music, after brandishing a bunch of roses at the singer.

A very agile band of dancers and a whole host of costume changes helped change the mood between soulful ballads and party hits, like ‘Livin’ la Vida Loca’, that got the whole audience up on their feet.

Held in the Auditorio Marbella, in the Nagueles quarry, Ricky Martin was one of the most highly-anticipated shows of the month-long Starlite festival.

Other upcoming acts include Tom Jones, the Pet Shop Boys and Julio Iglesias.
