Ricky Martin has announced plans to play a special show at India's Taj Mahal on 25 February (06).

The Latin heart-throb's Agra performance will kick off the 10 show 8th Wonder of the World concert series, which will take place bi-annually over a five-year period at such locations as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Coliseum in Rome, the Great Pyramid in Cairo, Egypt, and the Parthenon in Athens, Greece.

The events will benefit Unicef's Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS campaign, as well as YouthAIDS and the Ricky Martin Foundation.

The next concert, at Beijing's Forbidden City, will take place on 2 September (06), while a concert at the Statue of Liberty in New York City will close out the series in 2010.
