Julio Iglesias will perform in Australia and four Asian nations later this year as part of his "Starry Night" world tour, the Spanish singer's official website said Thursday.

The 66-year-old Grammy winner will kick off his tour of the region with a concert in Manila on March 20 followed by three performances in Australia - in Sydney, Hunter Valley and Melbourne - between March 26 and 29.

He will then perform in Kuala Lumpur on April 1 and in three Japanese cities - Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya - between April 5 and 12.

Iglesias, the biggest-selling Latino recording artist in history, will wrap up his tour of Asia with a concert in Seoul on April 17.

"The tour is focused on the emblematic songs of the artist, songs dedicated to his fans around the world, in gratitude for their unconditional love," his website said.

In 1985, Iglesias was honoured with a star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame and three years later he received a Grammy Award for best Latin singer with his album "Un Hombre Solo".

He has released nearly 80 albums which have sold around 300 million copies over his four-decade-long singing career.

In addition to Spanish, Iglesias has recorded albums in German, English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Tagalog and Japanese.
