I.L.S & Big Deal Touring has today announced that the world’s most beloved tenor, Andrea Bocelli will be visiting New Zealand and Australia this September for a series of major arena concerts. The legendary Italian tenor will perform in Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth.
The concerts will be divided into two parts. The first part will consist of classical opera arias and songs and the second part will feature some of the most popular hits from his latest album “Passione”- a collection of the world’s most beautiful love songs.
With one of the most recognisable voices in modern music, Andrea Bocelli is a global icon who has forged a career spanning almost 20 years, selling a staggering 80 million records worldwide. Since 1994, Bocelli has recorded 14 solo albums and his 1999 “Sacred Arias” album has sold over 5 million copies, making it the best-selling classical recording of all time. His pop career, which includes the much loved “Time To Say Goodbye”, a duet with Sarah Brightman that reached Number 1 in 1998 in charts around the world may have drawn millions in, but Bocelli has always enthusiastically shared his classical calling.
On January 29th, 2013 Andrea Bocelli released his new, highly anticipated 14th studio album, “Passione”, which includes some of the most beautiful love songs ever, featuring special duets with Jennifer Lopez, Nelly Furtado and trumpeter Chris Botti. In October 2013 he released the CD-DVD Love in Portofino, an international project featuring solo performances by Maestro Bocelli and some exceptional duets.
Andrea Bocelli last toured in Australia in 2008 performing sell-out arena concerts to an audience of over 65,000.
