The world’s most beloved tenor, Andrea Bocelli, has announced he will be returning to the UK for a 4-date arena tour in the autumn of 2019, visiting Birmingham, Glasgow, Belfast and Leeds.
Concert dates in November 2018 have already sold out at The O2 London and there are limited tickets left for his Dublin shows at 3Arena this October.
Andrea Bocelli will release his highly anticipated new 16-track album ‘Si’ on 26th October – his first brand new material in 14 years – billed as “a celebration of love, family, faith and hope”. ‘Si’ will feature tracks co-written with Ed Sheeran and Tiziano Ferro as well as duets with Dua Lipa, fellow contemporary classical star Josh Groban and soprano Aida Garifullina. The album also sees Bocelli’s 20-year old son Matteo collaborate with him on the track ‘Fall On Me’ which appears on the soundtrack to the upcoming Disney movie The Nutcracker and The Four Realms.
Reportedly the biggest selling solo classical artist of all time with over 80 million worldwide album sales, Bocelli has performed for four US Presidents, two Popes and many Royal families across the world, as well as at high-profile ceremonies for the Olympic Games and the World Cup. The Maestro has countless music awards to his name over past 25 years in music and even boasts a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which he received in 2010 for his contribution to live theatre.
Bocelli is acclaimed worldwide as one of the most accomplished representatives of Italy’s finest vocal tradition, his rich and unique voice being one of the most distinctive of all time. The tenor actively supports numerous philanthropic causes furthering medical and scientific research, tackling poverty, as well as promoting compulsory primary education worldwide.
These new 2019 show dates will showcase songs from Bocelli’s latest album as well as a wide repertoire from across his 15 studio albums.
