Watch Sneak Peek of Alejandro Sanz's 'Sirope Vivo' Coming to HBO Latino (Exclusive)
Alejandro Sanz’s current tour is titled “Sirope Vivo” after his 2015 studio album, Sirope. But now “Sirope Vivo” will refer to something else as well.
“I’ve put together a kind of play that narrates my career from my latest song to my earliest,” Sanz tells Billboard. “I end the show with ‘Pisando fuerte,’ a song I hadn’t performed in years, and which has lyrics I wrote as a teen.”
It’s a rare glimpse into the full arc of Sanz's career and the first time, he says, that he’s truly provided a career retrospective, spanning over 25 years.
Now, as Sanz prepares to kick off the Latin American leg of his tour Jan. 29 in Mexico, HBO Latino will premiere the “Sirope Vivo” concert special Feb 12. Filmed live at Madrid’s Barclay Center last September, the special will also feature exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and can also be watched anytime on HBO On Demand, HBO GO and HBO NOW.
Want to hear -- and see -- more? Starting today, Billboard.com will exclusively premiere three vignettes that provide a taste of “Sirope.”
“it’s the first time I plan a show as if I were constructing a photo album,” says Sanz “I don’t know about you, but I like to look at albums from the end to the beginning.”
Stay tuned for our next vignette, premiering exclusively on Billboard.com Feb. 3.
