David Bisbal to perform at the legendary Royal Albert Hall in London
The news that David Bisbal would be performing at the legendary Royal Albert Hall in London came as a wonderful surprise for his fans as this is a dream come true for any artist.
The world’s leading artists from several performance genres including classical music, rock and pop, ballet and opera, have appeared on Royal Albert Hall’s stage: the opera shows of Wagner, Verdi and Elgar were first performed in London. As for the modern artists, David Bisbal will be performing on the same stage as Frank Sinatra, Liza Minelli, the Beatles, Sting, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Barry White, Simply Red, The Who, Robbie Williams or Adele, just to mention a few. It is important to emphasize the fact that most of them are Anglo-Saxons except for the Italian singer Laura Pausini who’s just concluded her extensive European tour with a spectacular night at the Hall on May 22nd. David Bisbal’s long awaited concert will take place on September 26th 2012 and it will definitely set a milestone for the Latin and Spanish music as Bisbal is the second Latin and Spanish pop artist to perform on the mythical stage besides Enrique Iglesias (2002). The difference with the latter is that Enrique Iglesias has focused his career both on the Latin and Anglo-Saxon markets singing both in Spanish and in English since the very beginning of his career.
David Bisbal has collaborated with great international artists recording some songs in English, but most of his repertory is in Spanish. Most of those who have succeeded in conquering the Anglo-Saxon market (Enrique Iglesias, Shakira or RickyMartin) have started on the American market by singing in Spanish and no sooner had they started in English, they became famous and successful reaching the top positions in the music charts in Europe, Asia, etc.
By performing at the Hall, David Bisbal makes his debut through the front door on the tough British music market which gives him a double merit. It’s also true that his fame has spread throughout the world from Latin America to Eastern Europe and the USA especially among the Spanish speaking communities, but also among the non-Spanish speaking countries (France, Portugal, Romania, Bulgaria, etc.). He has fan clubs in many countries throughout the world that support him and believe in his huge talent that has already started in conquering the international music market. Nevertheless, as he always says, reaching far does not mean he’s going to forget about his roots or about his essence as an Artist, on the contrary, it will be a great opportunity to introduce the international audience to Andalusia, to Spain and to the Latin culture.
