Joaquín Sabina at the American Airlines Arena RESCHEDULED

Joaquín Sabina is a true songwriter. He's also a singer. And yes, he's a living legend in his native Spain.

Over the course of a 33-year career as a recording artist, Sabina has amassed a ton of honors and accolades. And it all began with Sabina's first number-one single, "Pongamos que hablo de Madrid" ("Let's Bet I Speak of Madrid") off his second album, Malas Compañias (Bad Company). But it's not really his singing -- though his raspy voice is unique and immediately recognizable -- that has made him one of la madre patria's most prized artists.

More than his other talents, Sabina's songwriting has been heralded for its thematic depth and his singular way with language. A wordsmith in every sense of the word, he's proven his talent time and again on every one of his 20 albums.

Yet at the end of the day, the man is still a performer. And he'll give the people of Miami a rare chance to see him live when he plays the AAA next Friday.

Joaquin Sabina. Sunday, October 23. (Originally scheduled for Friday, May 27.) American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. The concert begins at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $50 to $170 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Call 786-777-1000 or visit aaarena.com.
