Enrique Iglesias kicked off his current Euphoriatour last month, along with Pitbull and Prince Royce, in support of his ninth studio album, Euphoria, which spawned the hits, “I Like It” and “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You).”
Before the singer-songwriter embarked on his latest journey, he spoke with media outlets about how the Euphoria tour differs from his previous tours, the visual elements of the show, and what you might find on his tour rider.
Iglesias has been on the road almost non-stop since last year, most recently visiting the UK and Australia before hitting up the States.
So what’s the difference between this tour and his previous tours overseas?
“Well, the thing is that this one, there’s a much larger combination of songs. That’s due a lot to this album. It’s more eclectic musically than any other tour I’ve ever done,” Iglesias shared.
“At the same time, too, I also get to create a setlist where I can cover songs – even Spanish songs – from 1995 to now. So, when you think of a setlist, being able to do a song like ‘Experiencia Religiosa,’ which a song that I first sang on my first album in Spanish, to songs like ‘I Like It’ or ‘Dirty Dancer’ or ‘Tonight,’ they’re very, very different.”
Even in a large arena, such as the HP Pavilion in downtown San Jose, California, where Iglesias will be playing Friday, October 7, the fans should expect somewhat of an intimate performance from the singer throughout his show.
“The cool thing about the stage, it’s very interactive with the audience. I always like getting as close as possible to a crowd, even to the people that are all the way in the back,” the singer explained. “We like to set up a B stage because I feel that an arena is that perfect size. I know for some people, it might be a little big. But I actually think they’re my favorite venues to play, because they’re big. They can be up to 15,000 people or more, but still you can make it very intimate.”
