                             On April 30, began his tour "Camilo Pura Vida" 
                             with presentations 
                             Central America and parts of South America.
                             The first gig was at the Sports Palace in the

                             Heredia, Costa Rica, which was a resounding 
                             success, as in Guatemala, Ecuador, 
                             Honduras and Chile, which have been rated as 
                             grandstanding and unforgettable.
                             The concert that took place in the arena of 
                             Santiago, Chile was one of the most 
                             emotional, as the Chilean public was one of the 
                             most pleasing of America 
                             South and the last of the first part of his tour.
                             In November 2008 he resumed his farewell tour with 
                             a concert series in

                             In total, some 80,000 people attended his 
                              concerts.
                             Camilo Sesto arrived on 3 December to Guayaquil, 
                             Ecuador, from 
                             Colombia, where the city bought all the tickets a 
                             week before the 
                             concert. In his presentation on December 5, 
                             expressed feel cheated

                             the contract. Despite all the problems that 
                             happened, he kept his 
                             commitment to the public and sang at the concert.
                             This tour has made it clear that Camilo Sesto is 
                             one of the artists 
                             enshrined. The presentations of Peru and Panama 
                             have been canceled by 
                             some recruitment problems that are beyond the 
                             control of the artist, but 
                             for 2009 has promised his public goodbye to the

                             passions of youth, which he said he left for

Most prominent male voice of Spanish pop musicEdit

I would like to ask to the line "most prominent male voice of Spanish pop music", as there are several singers in Spain than not are far more known than Camilo Sesto have ever been. Probably that title belongs to Julio Iglesias, who sold more than 250 millions of albums worldwide and is considered one of the male singers of all time , but not the best. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.165.30.19 (talk) 16:38, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

I don't know who you might be, if you are young or whatever but Camilo Sesto has sold more than twice the albums than Julio Iglesias (in Spain), whom to me is just average compared to someone as talented as Camilo Sesto. There was a period in which Camilo took a very long break to dedicate his life to his family. During this time he lost contact with fans, there was relatively no publicity or fame during that time. He had spent an enormous amount to produce "Jesucristo Superstar" and perhaps decided to hold his massive surge of investing in publicity when his first son arrived. However, during the time of his "comeback" in 1991 with the song Amor Mío, ¿Qué Me Has Hecho? there was an immediate overhaul of his music, his albums, etc. I cannot remember any Spanish-speaking house I'd visit, where no Camilo Sesto's albums would be part of their music library. To this day, Camilo Sesto's songs are part of many romantic gatherings in Spanish speaking culture. If you ever mention the song "Perdoname" everyone knows how it goes. Not to mention there has been a lot of negative publicity due to a "farewell tour" titled "La Gira del Adiós" which was a "zoo", as it took Camilo by surprise; because according to him, he never made those connections and it was most certainly a hoax.
I personally never owned anything from Julio Iglesias, and I don't personally know anyone who has. The man knows how to reach far and wide, and can use his millions to buy a lot of fans (you know about him, that should say a lot), but I never really saw the greatness in him. There are a couple of good songs, that to me will only be considered "one hit wonders" but nothing that would drive me to buy one album. Better get a "various artists" collection to get a couple of his best hits to be honest (you probably wouldn't find Camilo Sesto's work in such compilations, he doesn't need to do that). In short, Camilo Sesto's fans know him well, and stand by him. Just 5 days ago I bought myself yet another one of his hits albums (he has so many) it's not just a surge, its just part of any traditional Spanish speaking household (in my opinion); and I don't even consider myself a "real" fan (I am only 37 and most people from his era are in their 50s and 60s). Pity this English article sucked so bad, but I was able to give it a huge makeover with plenty of citations. --Molokaicreeper (talk) 20:41, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Farewell tourEdit

This article looks like an advertising for Camilo Sesto's Farewell tour. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.36.184.170 (talk) 05:59, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

The farewell tour of 2011 was a hoax. Camilo retired in 2010, to only come back on television for interviews and such. --Molokaicreeper (talk) 20:54, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
