After the March 11 launch of a world tour in support of his latest Interscope album, "Escape," in Toronto, Latin vocalist Enrique Iglesias has promised a return engagement in September. But for some who attended the initial concert, it will mark the first time they actually hear the music as intended.

That's because during the tour kickoff at the Air Canada Centre's Sears Theatre, a speaker problem left some sections of the venue's upper bowl without sound. Hundreds of concertgoers lodged complaints and demanded refunds in the ensuing days, leading Iglesias and his management to take action.

"Once Enrique Iglesias was made aware that there was sound concerns he decided he wanted to book a return show and offer people in the balcony free tickets at a lower level," a representative for Iglesias' management said in a statement. According to published reports, fans who purchased tickets in the "300" level of the theater will be offered free seats in a lower level for the makeup show, a date for which is still pending.

Iglesias hits Cleveland tomorrow (March 19) and begins a European swing April 27 in Lisbon, Portugal. The new album's lead single, "Hero," is in its 15th week at No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart.
