Spanish singer Julio Iglesias first came to Indonesia nearly 40 years ago, when he was already an established, multi-platinum-selling ballad singer. Since then, Iglesias, mostly as a tourist, has visited the country regularly, nearly 40 to 50 times by his count.
Now, “the Spanish Frank Sinatra” said he had a strong emotional bond with Indonesia. He met his wife here, after all.
“I have been to Jakarta, Bali and other islands in Indonesia many times now,” the 68-year-old said. “I have been very involved with Indonesia, and I know what it means in my life.”
The renowned vocalist is set to hit the stage during a concert at the Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place Ballroom in Jakarta on Dec.4 . “Julio Iglesias — Live in Jakarta” will be a joint presentation by BeritaSatu Media Holdings, with which the Jakarta Globe is affiliated, and Java Festival Production.
