- Los Angeles, May 3 (IANS/EFE) Pop idol Enrique Iglesias returns to his native Madrid to offer his first concert in Spain in more than a decade, an event to which he is going after "two weeks without sleeping", he said.
"It's really special to be able to return to Madrid after 12 years," the singer-songwriter, who has sold more than 70 million albums, told EFE. "I can't believe that so much time has passed without giving a concert there."
"I'm happy. The tickets for the concert are sold out and I really want to give the fans a big show and for them to enjoy themselves. There are many years and many songs I want to share with them," said the 36-year-old artist.
His latest album, "Euphoria", returned the son of Julio Iglesias to the front rank of international performers, thanks to the success of songs like "I like It", "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)" and "Dirty Dancer".
"I think that the reaction of the people is going to be spectacular. I really want to. I've been going without sleep for two weeks because I'm nervous. It's 12 years without performing in Spain and I've even been practicing with Yandel a version of the 'Macarena'," he said, laughing.
Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez and the duo Wisin and Yandel announced Monday in Los Angeles that they would make a joint tour of North America during the summer.
