Enrique Iglesias Says Britney Spears Tour Negotiations Were ‘Rushed’ But Remains A Fan [AUDIO]
Enrique Iglesias, the man behind the hits “Tonight” and “I Like It,” called into “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Wednesday, to tell us about his “Euphoria” world tour, how he get those perfectly bent signature hats and whether or not can we expect to see him pulling girls up on stage for this tour.
Britney Spears is pulling guys up on stage and handcuffing them to a pole for her tour, will we be seeing anything like this at your concerts? “It depends on my mood, it all depends,” Enrique replied. “I don’t handcuff anyone, I would get sued.”
Enrique was actually in negotiations to go on tour with Britney Spears.
“It was one of those things where, it wasn’t completely finalized and it was a little bit rushed. I wasn’t going to get any rest time and it was all very fast. They announced it and it was one of those things that I wasn’t 100% convinced. I’m kind of sad because I’m a big Britney Spears fan and I think it would have been great for the fans, it would have been different. Hopefully we will get to do it another time.”
Enrique is currently on tour with one of the hottest guys in music right now, Pitbull and popular bachata singer Prince Royce. What can fans expect?
“It is just a lot of energy. I feel better on stage than I ever have before and I think that they are going to see a concert that is eclectic and hopefully different than anything they have seen before,” Enrique says. “There is no better feeling in the world than being up on the stage and just singing a song that the crowd reacts to, that they love, that they enjoy.”
Enrique has had many hits in the past, but Euphoria is the first bilingual album with several songs currently on the charts.
“Throughout the years I think that the secret to having a good show is a good set list and being able to do songs from 10 years ago until now, just makes a better set list, ” Enrique stated.
Of course Enrique will be sporting his signature military hats with the perfectly bent bills for the tour.
Enrique reveals how he gets that perfect bill bend, “I do that myself. I notice that most of the people wear their hats flat. I have a tendency, I don’t know if it’s a nervous tick or what, but I always do that to the hats. I bend them all the time.”
