Before Enrique Iglesias took the stage in Berlin, Germany last night, Enrique did a interview with Abendzeitung Newspaper!
Enrique talked to the newspaper about touring, a new album and bringing fans onstage.
Check out the interview below:
You have been on the road for three years now with the “Sex and Love Tour”. Do you have a special moment that has been remembered?
Enrique Iglesias: I still remember the overall impression of all performances. Being on tour can also be quite exhausting, the constant traveling around is tiring. But after a successful performance you know what you are doing. This is something of value.
Sometimes you also kissed female fans on the stage. Can the girls in Berlin also expect?
Iglesias: Yes of course. It is also exciting to see how fans react when they are brought to the stage. Some cry for joy, others laugh … I love fan interactions.
What about the male fans who want to get on stage?
Iglesias: I do not want to discriminate against anyone. Men can also come to the stage. We should just have a good time together.
Have you ever had a bad experience with a fan on stage?
Iglesias: No, thank God, not yet. The feelings of some fans seem to ride a roller coaster when they come to the stage. Some are then petrified and can no longer move. But it is clear: there are 15,000 people and are overwhelmed. Others are, in turn, the complete opposite of shy and are quite easy on it.
You have not been to Germany for 15 years. Why?
Iglesias: It’s madness how fast time passes. In Milan, I was also no longer for 15 years. Since I am really excited before the concerts. Because I want it to be great shows and that people have fun. I also want to show my fans how much I’ve changed in the last few years. I feel more self-assured on the stage than ever before, but I’m still nervous before the performances.
Will you compare the concert on May 5th with her last show in Germany?
Iglesias: I do not actually compare gigs with each other. But I want it to be an unforgettable evening. Imagine, you have not seen a school friend for many years and want to throw a reunion party. Finally, you want everything to go perfectly.
Can we look forward to a new album soon?
Iglesias: Yes, I was just in the studio and will release a new album this year. But I’m still not 100% satisfied, so I want to give the songs the final touch. Now that we are much more flexible in the publishing of singles, we can also leave with the album but also some time.
Can we expect more Spanish or English songs?
Iglesias: It will be a colorful mix of English and Spanish songs, which you can look forward to on the album.
For a few performances, you will also be performing together again with Pitbull. Do you like to have a beer after the gigs?
Iglesias: We got to know each other in 2009 or 2010. We both live in Miami, Pitbull’s best friend has gone to this high school with me. We will definitely be together after a show. And I can soothe you: there is never any drama with him.
Some fans say Álvaro Soler is “the new Enrique Iglesias”. What do you think?
Iglesias: I think I’m the new Álvaro Soler.
