Alejandro Sanz is putting the finishing touches these days in Madrid on the monumental show he will premiere next month in Mexico, in sync with the launch of his new album "La Musica No Se Toca" (The Music Is Not to be Played), which came about from his urge to compose an album "of monumental symphonic pop rock."
"There's a song that I think of as a tribute to The Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper' and also a part like Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' but it's not something I would have planned," the singer told reporters.
"It's a disc dedicated to prowling, to roaming around. I've been through so many things, good and bad, and I've learned that the journey is in the traveling, not in the destination," said Sanz, who in the past year had his third child, lost his mother and married Raquel Perera.
Sanz and the 10 musicians joining him for the upcoming tour will take to a stage set with the awe-inspiring designs of Luis Pastor, who has worked previously with Sanz as well as with Miguel Bose and Maná.
The result, he believes, is the "most spectacular tour" he has ever done up to now.
The first to enjoy it will be the Mexicans he accompanied recently in his TV appearance on the jury of a singing contest called "La Voz" (The Voice).
"Mexico made me so happy last year and I felt really at home there," the Madrid singer said.
He said he already has plans to bring the tour to Spain, probably in May or June 2013.
