Ricky Martin to perform at Life Ball 2014

In a celebrating of joys of life, sensuousness and a tribute to handsomeness, the Life Ball 2014 has announced that the Latino star Ricky Martin, chosen many times over as Sexiest Man Alive, will perform at the event.

For many years Ricky Martin has been active under the auspices of the red ribbon. Speaking about his invitation to perform at the event, he said: "I’m honoured that Life Ball invited me to come to Vienna for such an important cause that truly matters".

One of Life Ball’s partners, President Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States and founder of the Clinton Health Access Initiative, will deliver keynote remarks, supporting the way towards an AIDS-free generation.

Taking place on May 31, 2014, the 22nd Life Ball is dedicating itself to the topic "The Garden of Earthly Delights" and aims to raise further funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS and to hoist a flag for living in solidarity – is also reflected in 2014’s slogan: "Love is a bloom growing anywhere".

The basic inspiration for the Life Ball 2014 was Hieronymus Bosch‘s "Garden of Earthly Delights" – interpreted as the idea of a diverse society, living together passionately and peacefully, as if the Fall of Man had never happened and people had never been expelled from Paradise.

As well as the performance from Ricky Martin, the Life Ball will also feature the world of male models with a host of ripped Adonises, beguiling beaus, wild boys and sensual charmers, strutting their stuff in the first Male Fashion Show of the Life Ball, presented by L’Uomo Vogue.

Those who want to stroll through the "Garden of earthly Delights" and experience the Life Ball with all its virtues, may still, for a limited time, secure themselves VIP-Tickets for 750 EUR, with seats on the VIP grandstand for the opening show, access to the VIP area of the City Hall Ballroom, culinary delights and all beverages (from champagne to spirits, wine and beer), all inclusive.

Owners of VIP-Tickets may also function as hosts, with their own Lounge Table for EUR 3.000, to which they may invite up to twelve VIP-Ticket holders, for friends, business partners or clients.
