Sizzling and Scintillating

Few artists reach such a level of success that they no longer require a last name. Enrique Iglesias is well beyond that point. Yet it would be a shame if he decided to do so. There’s something satisfying about speaking “Enrique Iglesias” out loud ... it rolls off the tongue in the same way that his impassioned singing stimulates the senses.

The son of legendary Spanish singer/songwriter Julio Iglesias, Enrique has long since stepped out of his father’s shadow. You might even say that he’s eclipsed his dad’s global success. Since unleashing his first self-titled album in 1995, Iglesias has dominated the music scene with 10 studio releases and dozens of successful singles to his credit.

Alternating seamlessly between Latino and English-language recordings, Iglesias has managed to excite audiences of various cultures on a scale that few crossover artists have accomplished. His self-penned dance hits and pop melodies have garnered numerous Grammy nominations and wins, World Music Awards and MTV trophies. And he’s set numerous records on the Billboard tracking charts.

All of those accolades pale in comparison to the thrill of experiencing Enrique onstage. His current All The Hits Live Tour was launched in 2018, making stops in Great Britain, Russia, Greece, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Brazil and many more along the way. New hits “El Baño” with Bad Bunny and “Move To Miami” featuring Pitbull were released last year, adding to an impressive set that includes “Hero,” “Rhythm Divine” and “Bailamos.”

Perfectly timed for Mexican Independence Day, the Latin heartthrob will bring a very special performance of All The Hits Live to Caesars Palace’s Colosseum, his only U.S. stop of the year. –Sam Novak
