Ricky Martin is checking one more thing off his bucket list.

The Latin superstar will be launching his very own Las Vegas residency early next year at the new Park Theater at Monte Carlo. The exciting news was confirmed by the chart-topping artist during a press conference in Las Vegas today (Nov.16) after he announced the residency on The Ellen Show.

"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," Martin said in a statement.

The "Vente Pa'Ca" singer's headlining show will be produced by the renowned and legendary Jamie King, who has worked with mega stars including Madonna and Michael Jackson, and will be promoted by Live Nation and MGM Resorts International.

"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," he added.

Martin's run at the Monte Carlo's Park Theater will kick off April 5, 2017. Tickets will go on sale Monday, Nov. 21, 2016 at 10 a.m. PT.
