Joaquín Sabina is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in Spanish contemporary music. A singer, songwriter and poet, his prolific writing over four decades has produced 14 studio, two live and three compilation albums. Sabina has had his fair share of life experience to inspire his music—political activism, periods of deep depression, drug addiction and a stroke, to name but a few—but it is his exceptional talent as a wordsmith for which he is most famous. After a five-year break, the lyrical legend is back touring to celebrate the 15th anniversary of his most highly acclaimed album, 19 días y 500 noches (1999). This is his second stop in Barcelona, after a sell-out show in December, as part of the ‘500 noches para una crisis’ tour.
Random fact: In 1975, Sabina played in front of George Harrison in a London pub, whilst living in exile. Harrison tipped him with a five pound note, which Sabina has kept to this day.
