Children Banned From Attending Ricky Martin Concert In Honduras

Children Banned From Attending Ricky Martin Concert In Honduras


A concert in Honduras by musician Ricky Martin will proceed but the government has banned children under the age of 15 from attending due to "erotic content," according to Fox News Latino.

The sexy entertainer, known for songs such as "Livin' La Via Loca" and "Shake Your Bon Bon," is currently on his "Musica + Alma + Sexo" world tour and his planned concert in Tegucigalpa, Honduras on October 16 has been in doubt after speculation that show would be canceled following opposition from religious groups.

Last Friday Honduran President Porfirio Lobo ordered that plans for the concert proceed, and that banning the event would be "a highly reprehensible act of intolerance."

Alberto Espinal, a senior interior ministry official, says the special restriction on the Martin concert is "to protect the mental health of Honduran youth," even, as Fox reports, "in a country where there are regular performances by music groups that promote sex and violence and glorify drug kingpins without any restrictions imposed on them by the authorities."

Martin has announced that proceeds from the concert will go to a children's foundation.
