AFTER sell-out performances from Julio Iglesias and Tom Jones, the month-long Starlite festival extravaganza is finally drawing to a close.

But it will be going out with a bang, not a whimper, as an Abba tribute band takes to the stage on Thursday evening to perform a catalogue of pop hits.

The festival’s final fling will see Spanish singer-songwriter Alejandro Sanz perform on August 22.

Of the big name performances – including the Pet Shop Boys, the Beach Boys and Ricky Martin – legendary singer Julio Iglesias was one of the highlights.

Madrid mayor Ana Botella was in attendance as Iglesias took his audience on an emotional rollercoaster, expressing his gratitude for their support and confessing he ‘sings to continue living’.
