Ricky Martin’s ‘Hyper-Pop’ Stuck In ’90s

Laura Emerick of The Chicago Sun-Times reviewed Ricky Martin’s performance at the Chicago Theatre on Thursday (February 2). Emerick writes, “Maybe time and trends have moved on, but Martin’s still partying like it’s 1999. His state of the art staging at the Chicago Theatre offered elaborate video projections, lighting effects and nonstop action, especially by Martin, who twirled and whirled like a Tasmanian devil, executing cartwheels, splits, hand-stands, and even flamenco and capoeira flourishes. It was a dazzling display from a natural showman.”

    Well, it’s nice to reminisce the time when some said he (Ricky) was the new Elvis.

    The guy did cartwheels on stage? I’m picturing that and it seems like it could be pretty funny to see. I’d rather just Ricky sing and Shake is Bon Bon, that’s enough of a show for me!

    Guess this tour is a flop. He went to selling out arenas and stadiums to doing theaters. How times have changed.

  4. Mehrunisa says:

    The tour is sold out! It’s not his fault that people invent rumors and are into rap-crap

    all I’m saying, is, Ricky martin, I like the way, he deals with the press, even though, he’s been consistently rumored, to be GAY, which, I hope, it’s not true. good looking but his gender, is, questionable. what?
