The Marbella summer is in full swing, the town is buzzing, the beaches are vibrant and the prestigious high season events are underway. Each year the town boasts a star-studded programme of live music, which includes a selection of famous artists from around the globe.
Last week Grammy award winning singer Seal put on a spectacular show at the Puente Romano Tennis Club in Marbella. The sell-out concert attracted locals, tourists and celebrities alike to enjoy classics including ‘Crazy’ and ‘Wishing on a Star’.
World number one professional tennis player Novak Djokovic and wife Jelena attended the concert at which Seal dedicated his most iconic song ‘Kiss from a Rose’ to the couple. Djokovic has been in the area for a number of weeks training at the Puente Romano Tennis Club for the upcoming hard-court season, starting with the Canadian Rogers Cup, which takes place between 21st and 31st July in Toronto. Dutch football manager Frank Rijkaard, who has recently relocated to Marbella, was also spotted amongst fans in the arena.
Seal is by no means the only high profile artist to perform this year in Marbella; British soul and pop band Simply Red are set to light up Fuengirola Castle (Parque Castillo Sohail) on 18th August with top hits including ‘Holding Back the Years’, ‘If you Don’t Know me by Now’ and ‘Fairground’. Located just a short drive from Marbella, the Parque Castillo Sohail makes for a scenic venue, which is sure to attract many of Marbella’s music lovers.
Another impressive musical event taking place in Marbella during the summer is the renowned Starlite Festival, held annually at the Nagüeles auditorium in the exclusive area of Sierra Blanca. It has become a popular venue for international and national celebrities, both on the stage and among the audience. Past performers include Enrique Iglesias, Tom Jones, Jamie Callum and Andrea Bocelli. This year the month-long event hosts favourites including Santana, The Corrs and Status Quo.
