The UK and Ireland will spend four 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 four 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, with songs from his latest album 'Passione' that will also bring a flavour of Bocelli’s musical roots.
No.1 classical chart sensation Lucy Kay is to duet with Andrea Bocelli. The classical pin-up will join Bocelli on stage in London, Birmingham and Liverpool, where the pair will duet together on ‘Canto Della Terra’
and ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love
She joins chart-topping violinist, YouTube sensation and one of the most exciting emerging talents in the classical music world, Lindsey Stirling
, on the bill. Lindsey Stirling is the American violinist who is revolutionising the classical world, amassing over 757 million YouTube views, topping the Billboard charts and selling out tours worldwide. Lindsey Stirling will perform on all four dates of the tour.
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. He has been praised by such luminaries as Luciano Pavarotti, Franco Corelli, Zubin Mehta, Jose Carreras, Lorin Maazel, Renee Fleming and Celine Dion, who once introduced him by saying: “I heard someone say that if God had a singing voice, he would sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli.” He has sold over 80 million albums around the world, his 1999 Sacred Arias album has sold over 5 million copies, making it the best selling classical recording of all time. His pop career, including the much loved Time To Say Goodbye
, a duet with Sarah Brightman that reached Number 1 in charts around the world in 1998, may have drawn millions in, but Bocelli has always enthusiastically shared his classical calling.
