Smiling, dancing and playfully flirting with women in the crowd, Marc Anthony took the stage Saturday night in Colombia for his first concert since the collapse of his marriage to Jennifer Lopez.

"They're saying I'm single," Anthony, 42, joked to cheers from the huge crowd at the Símon Bolívar Metropolitan Park in Bogotá.

Never mentioning Lopez, 41, by name, Anthony, dressed in a dark suit and open-necked shirt, ran through a rousing set of romantic salsa hits and blew kisses at girls in the crowd, which sang along.

He pointed out one female fan and called her "Mamacita" – or "Hot Mama." As the crowd chanted, "Mamacita, mamacita" he told her, "You're so beautiful."

The show in front of a huge crowd was staged by Nivea skin care products to celebrate its 100th birthday. Anthony, who flew in two nights earlier, kept a low profile in Bogotá, skipping a Nivea party on Friday night.

The former couple must still work together though – their previously announced television show, Q'Viva!, will go on as planned.

"Q'Viva! is set to film this autumn in South America," XIX Entertainment confirms in a statement. "Both Jennifer and Marc are committed to the Q'Viva! project and will work on it as planned. The show goes on!"
