Ricky Martin on Mandalay stage
Don’t settle for less than the real Ricky Martin today.
After the Puerto Rican pop star played the Mandalay Bay Events Center in 1999, the casino was so impressed that it cut a deal with his management to co-produce the ill-fated “Storm” revue that played like a Ricky Martin show without Ricky.
Now Martin himself is back with “The Black and White Tour” and an MTV “Unplugged” album that runs contrary to the glitzy production of his live shows.
Tickets are $50.25-$102.75 for the 8 p.m. show at 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Call 632-7580.
