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.
