The Begin the Beguine hitmaker was determined to play his only concert in his native Spain this year at the Starlite Marbella festival, but doctors told him he wasn't ready to return to the stage and Iglesias reluctantly postponed the show until next year (16).

He is now not expected back onstage until his world tour continues next month (Sep15).

The singer had "a small medical procedure in the lumbar portion of his back" following a routine check-up in New York.

His operation came just weeks after the crooner's son, Enrique Iglesias, underwent reconstructive hand surgery after his fingers were sliced up when he attempted to grab a flying drone at a show in Tijuana, Mexico in May (15).
