Julio Iglesias' Royal Albert Hall success

Tuesday May 20, 2014

Julio Iglesias pleased the crowds at The Royal Albert Hall on Monday night, his last concert in the city.

The singer, 70, returned to the London stage for the first time in 10 years last week to delight fans with classics such as Un Canto a Galicia and Gwendolyne.

His concerts in London come after he was honoured for having sold more than 300million records worldwide, making him the most successful Latin singer of all time.

Receiving the award, Julio Iglesias said: "It's not a question of 10 or 15 years, it's a question of 45 or 50 years. It's a moment when people open their arms and hearts and like what you do.

"And I'm very grateful for that because I never expected to have a formula where you put this and this together and people want to react. It's just something that happens, or doesn't happen."
