Julio Iglesias - who has sold over 300 million copies of his 80 albums released worldwide -  plays the 02 on May 15. His last appearance in this country was in 1982.

Julio will perform all his English language hits, including All the Girls I’ve Loved Before, Amor, Hey and Begin the Beguine.

During a 46-year career, the Spanish singer has appeared in 600 cities around the world and more than 60 million people have seen him in performance. He recently received the most popular artist award of all time in China.

"I am so happy to return to Ireland after my previous performances," Julio declared from his home in Florida. "I can’t wait to do a show in Dublin. I am so grateful to all of you, for your love during all these years, and for giving me this amazing opportunity of coming back. I love you. See you in May."

The 1983 Guinness Book of Records awarded the Spanish singer the only Diamond Disc ever granted by  the company. The award citation recognised the fact that he has sung and recorded in the most languages in the history of music.

Julio Iglesias has featured in duets with many famous artists, such as Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Willie Nelson, Diana Ross, Dolly Parton, Art Garfunkel, Paul Anka, Charles Aznavour, Sting, The Beach Boys, and his fellow Spaniard, Plácido Domingo.

He received a Grammy Award in 1988 and, in 1985, he was awarded a star with his name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
