Julio Iglesias
Ovation Hall



Julio Iglesias, one of the most popular and enduring figures in the history of music, is set to take the stage at Revel Casino Hotel’s Ovation Hall on Saturday, May 3. Showtime is 8:00 p.m.

Blessed with good looks, a powerful voice, and a gift for communicating with an audience, Julio Iglesias has sold over 300 million albums worldwide and remains a popular concert draw and chart-topping recording artist in a career that has spanned six decades. Iglesias’ career began in 1968, when he won a songwriter's contest in Spain and signed a contract with Columbia Record’s Latin music label, Discos Columbia. In 1978, he signed a contract for CBS International, propelling him to add English, French and Italian to his language repertoire, because he recorded in those languages also under his new management. He achieved his first hit in English with a cover of "Begin The Beguine" and a compilation album Julio in 1983 building his reputation.

In 1984, he released the smash hit album 1100 Bel Air Place, which gave him considerable fame in English language markets. The album sold three million albums in the US alone with the first single "To All the Girls I've Loved Before," a duet with Willie Nelson reaching top five on the Billboard Hot 100. Iglesias won a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album in the 1988 Grammy Awards for the album Un Hombre Solo or "A Single Man". He also recorded a duet with Stevie Wonder on "My Love" from his Non Stop album which achieved crossover success in 1988.

Julio Iglesias set two World Guinness Records: the first one in 1983, for having sold the most records in the most language in history, and the second one in 2013, for being the Best-selling Male Latin Artist. In April 2013, in Beijing, he received the award to the First & Most Popular International Artist of All Time in China.
