A statement from the band reads: "In solidarity with the pueblo of Ecuador and out of respect after all the casualties, the team has decided to postpone our April 27 & 30 concerts in Guayaquil and Quito.

Ricky Martin And Juanes Praise Colombia's Gay Marriage Ruling


Ricky Martin Juanes

On Thursday (07Apr16), the highest court in the conservative Roman Catholic nation rejected a proposal which states marriage is only applied to unions between men and women.

Although gay couples in Colombia are already allowed to form civil unions, passing a law letting same-sex couples marry would give them the right to inheritance, pensions and health benefits, among other things.

A final ruling on the law is expected to be approved in the coming weeks, and would make Colombia the fourth country in Latin American to legalise gay marriage - joining Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina.

Ricky Martin Sued Over World Cup Song Again


Ricky Martin

Aspiring artist Luis Adrian Cortes Ramos, a former finalist on TV talent show Idol Puerto Rico, sued Martin in 2014, claiming he submitted his version of the track as part of SuperSong, a contest Martin and Sony Music executives launched in 2013 to find a new tune for the FIFA World Cup championships in Brazil.

According to court documents, the competition organisers promised "the winning composer would be recognised and he would be given credit for his work" - but Ramos insisted that never happened. He also alleged his single failed to make the official cut for the final five in the SuperSong contest, but was subsequently released by Martin, without his knowledge or permission.

Ramos' initial lawsuit was reportedly dismissed, but now he has filed new documents seeking $10 million (GBP7 million) for distress, copyright violation, and "severe mental anguish" he claims he has suffered and "continues to suffer" for loss of his composition and creation "without being credited or compensated".
