Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz launched his Mexican tour with a sold-out concert at the capital's Auditorio Nacional.

"What a pleasure to see you again!," Sanz told the 10,000 people who packed the hall for the first of his six shows at the iconic venue.

Sanz last performed in Mexico City in October 2012, when he kicked off an international tour to promote his latest album, "La musica no se toca."

Clad in black, the Spaniard performed several songs from the disc, including "Se vende" and "No me compares," over the course of the two-hour concert.

But Sanz also found time for earlier hits from his more than two decades in music, such as "Corazon Partio," "Amiga mia," and "Mi soledad y yo."

Besides the shows in the capital, Sanz has concerts scheduled in the northern metropolis of Monterrey, among other cities in the Aztec nation. EFE
