Now that Julio Iglesias has reached the fine, sweet age of 67, you've gotta wonder why he continues to hustle it for grandmothers across the globe. Maybe it's rivalry with his boy, Enrique, that keeps him stalking the stage.
Most Miamians would be spending their grand, golden years metabolizing Havana Club and puffing Cohibas by the pool while playing rapid-fire $100 hands of fichas with a former Miss Hialeah who's been hired as an "in-home nurse." But Don Julio isn't most people.
You don't survive a car crash and four decades in the biz, record 77 albums, move 300 million units, and spawn eight children by taking it easy. Obviously, Iglesias is a bit of a workaholic. And you can bet he'll be out on the road taking panties from grannies right up till the day his tan finally fades forever.
Julio Iglesias. Sunday, March 6. Hard Rock Live, One Seminole Way, Hollywood. The concert begins at 7 p.m. and tickets cost $80 to $130 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Call 954-327-7625 or visit hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com.
