    On August 9, 2014, Latin superstar Enrique Iglesias will become the first American recording artist to perform in Egypt since 2012.

    Wow, it's been a while...

    The performance will be the first of many events being planned at the AMER 5 Star Resorts Golf Porto Marina in the North Coast of Egypt; the concert will help set the stage to bring tourism and economic recovery back to Egypt. So this is more than just a concert. Really, it is.

    "I am excited to debut my new album in Egypt," said Iglesias. "It is the perfect place to let the universal language of music help people unite for peace and prosperity and share the joy of the moment, and each other. I hope my music will help bring back good memories and create great new ones. This performance is meant to be a positive experience for everyone."

    "Enrique's love for Middle Eastern culture, his emphasis on love, peace and dance music, and his international notoriety can really help to spark the revitalization of the region's global recognition as a leading travel destination rich in culture and history," said Dawn Elder, the CEO of Dawn Elder Management & World Entertainment, the producer of Iglesias' performance. "He's just the perfect performer to bring new life, exciting energy, and a positive attitude to Egypt and the Arab World."

    This is a big deal.
