Nearly 40 years to the day that his legendary father performed at the Grandstand, Julio Iglesias Jr. will charm music fans at the Great New York State Fair. The Latin singer-songwriter, model, and actor will bring his expressive stage presence and smooth, soulful voice to Chevy Court on Saturday, August 26 at 6:00 p.m. and sing through songs from his current album, Under the Covers, in which he puts a unique spin on an eclectic mix of popular songs.

On Under the Covers – just released in February 2023 – Iglesias Jr. reinterprets songs including Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” George Michaels’ “Careless Whisper,” Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” and Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” with a classic big band, swing-esque perspective.

Julio Iglesias Jr. started singing with his father, Julio Iglesias, when he was a child, but it was through modeling and acting that he first made a name for himself. Iglesias Jr. stepped into the national spotlight as the love interest of one of the actors on the mid-1990’s sitcom, Out of the Blue, and went on to host shows on The Travel Channel. He crossed into the popular music scene in the late 90s with “Nothing Else” (featured on the Music of the Heart soundtrack) and “One More Chance.” Since then, he has followed in his father’s footsteps, toured around the world captivating audiences.

Longtime fairgoers will remember Julio Iglesias, who is still recognized as the most commercially successful Spanish artist in the world, played at the Grandstand on August 29, 1984.

Julio Iglesias Jr.’s performance, like all entertainment in the Chevrolet Music Series, is free with admission to the Fair. Admission is $6 for adults and free for those 65 years and older, and 12 years and younger.
