The UK and Ireland will spend 4 nights in the company of Andrea Bocelli in November, a chance to revel in the romance and majesty of this stunning performer.
Bocelli, the world's premiere classical music star, returns to arenas for 4 nights, with shows featuring the repertoire that has made him famous throughout the world as a unique artist able to cross boundaries between classical and pop.
And songs from his latest album Passione will also bring a flavour of Bocelli's musical roots.
The biggest selling solo classical artist of all time, Bocelli has performed for four U.S. presidents, two popes and the royal family, as well as at ceremonies for the Olympic Games and the World Cup.
Passione is inspired by his pre-fame days, singing in bars, taking requests for songs like Antonio Carlos Jobim's 'Girl From Ipanema' or 'Corcovado,' Elvis Presley's 'Love Me Tender,' Italian hits such as 'Era Già Tutto Previsto,' and 'Champagne,' or Neapolitan songs like 'Anema e Core' and 'Mala Femmena.'
These are songs that evoke a happy and innocent time for Bocelli, his pre-fame days that established the joy he finds in music and performing that has stayed with him throughout his illustrious career. They are also some of the most romantic songs ever written, a European Songbook, performed by one of the greatest singers of love songs.
16 time Grammy winning producer David Foster recorded the album at Bocelli's family home on the Tuscan coast, sitting down to dinner together every night and cooking up the flavours of an intimate album, including songs in 6 languages.
Bocelli brings both that intimacy and the grandeur of operatic masterpieces to UK and Ireland Arenas for a night of musical celebration.
