Amarte es un Placer (English: "Loving You is a Pleasure") is an album by Mexican latin pop singer Luis Miguel. It was released on September 14, 1999. With this album the artist won three Latin Grammy Awards in 2000 (Album of the Year, Best Pop Album and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for the track "Tu Mirada"). It also received a nomination for a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album.

Tour[edit]

Amarte Es Un Placer Tour was performed between September 1999 and May 2000. It was the highest grossing tour ever made by a Latin artist (broken by another tour of Luis Miguel, Mexico En La Piel Tour). A curious date of this tour, is that the first show of the tour was before the official release of the album, and before the second show, he officially released his album, doing the presentation in Spain, when he, the next day, would continue the tour.
