Julio Iglesias, the 1970 Spanish representative at the Eurovision Song Contest, will celebrate the 40th anniversary of his participation next year, 2010. The singer, who is 66 years old now, still has a busy agenda full of concerts and multiple appearances around the world.

Julio Iglesias is one of the most popular Spanish singers of all time, and remains so. In 1970, he represented his native country at the Eurovision Song Contest, held in Amsterdam that year, with the song Gwendolyne. He did not win (ended up 4th), but his participation at the pan-European event brought him fame and recognition worldwide.

Since then, the singer has sold over 300 million records and has performed in front of more than 70 million people. Julio Iglesias, 66 years old, is not considering retirement at all. This year, he has visited 75 concert halls in 20 countries, and for 2010 he already has a busy agenda, starting the year with appearances in Punta del Este (Uruguay) and six Argentinian cities, including Buenos Aires.
