Alejandro Sanz 2021 U.S. Tour in New York City
One of the world’s most internationally renowned Latino artists comes to Radio City Music Hall as part of his “La Gira 2021” tour.
Alejandro Sanz’s career in music began in Spain in the 1990s, with his first album Viviendo Deprisa (1991), which became the top-selling album of the year. This record was followed by two other hit albums: Si tú me miras (1993) and Alejandro Sanz 3 (1995). Yet it was his 1997 album Más that launched him to international fame, selling over 5 million copies. Next came El alma al aire (2000), No es lo mismo (2003), and El tren de los momentos (2006). Later, his Paraíso Express (2009) brought him major recognition, giving rise to one of the biggest concert tours of 2010: more than 800,000 viewers enjoyed the concerts of his Tour Paraíso, which took him to the main venues of Latin America, Spain and the United States.
In 2011, he was honoured with prestigious awards, including the Spanish Ministry of Culture’s Medal of Merit in Fine Arts, the White House Vision Award for his philanthropic work through the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, and the ASCAP Award (given by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) in recognition of his great contributions to Latin music.
Alejandro Sanz is the most Grammy-Award-winning Spanish artist in the world (22 Latin Grammys and 4 American Grammys). He has received the Latin Grammy for Album of the Year three times. His style is notable for his flamenco-influenced ballads, and has also experimented with several other genres including pop, rock, funk, R&B and jazz.
