Venturing Into Music
Julio Iglesias was born and raised in Spain, where he pursued a career in professional football. His entrance into the music world was a result of a car accident which left him bed ridden. While recovering from the accident he started playing the guitar just to keep himself busy. That was the start of a passion for music that later led to him to sign with the record company Discos Columbia. Soon Julio Iglesias rose to fame and earned himself a large fan base across Europe.
Rise to Fame in the US
In the early eighties Julio Iglesias moved to the US, where he signed with the CBS International. Within a few years he came to be a well-known name in the US. Several of his albums were certified platinum and gold. Julio Iglesias also won a Grammy Award for his album Un Hombre Solo (A Man Alone). He also went on to collaborate with renowned artists like Dolly Parton, The Beach Boys, Willie Nelson, Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross.
The singer’s soulful voice and catchy tunes spread beyond geographical boundaries. In the late eighties he made history by having a live television special on Chinese National Television, a first ever for an international artist. Also worth mentioning is his 2009 show in Las Vegas which was sold out months in advance. Such was the demand for more tickets that standing-room-only tickets were then sold to accommodate a larger number of audiences.
Julio Iglesias has built a reputation for giving lively and highly entertaining live performances. The ticket sale for his first ever concert at the famous New York venue Madison Square Garden made records for being the quickest sold out show by an artist at the venue. The entertainment value and fame of the singer still draws in a large number of audiences and Julio Iglesias tickets are highly in demand.
Showing no signs of slowing down the artist has been on an international tour since early 2013. He has performed in various countries across Europe, Asia, UAE and South America. More dates have also been announced for his performances across USA, UK and Spain.
