This December, legendary tenor Andrea Boocelli will be returning to the U.S. for seven special concert dates in select cities, starting at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Saturday Dec. 3.
The unique performances will feature a new popular repertoire from Bocelli’s latest album, Cinema along with Bocelli’s beloved repertoire of Arias, love songs, and crossover hits. Bocelli will be joined onstage by conductor Eugene Kohn, guest artist Katharine McPhee and soprano Ana Maria Martinez at each stop on the tour.
American Express card members will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the Las Vegas show prior to the general public beginning on Monday, March 28 at 10 a.m. PST. General on sale will begin April 4 at 10 a.m. PST. Visit axs.com and andreabocelli.com for more information.
Describing a recent performance, The Morning Call raved, “The purity and precision of Bocelli’s tenor was, indeed, otherworldly,” while The Columbus Dispatch calls the tenor “absolutely amazing.”
Bocelli’s latest album, Cinema, was released this fall, and highlights a collection of movie songs etched in the culture and hearts of several generations, including epic theme songs featured in films such as “Doctor Zhivago,” “Love Story,” “The Godfather,” “Life is Beautiful,” “Gladiator” and many more. The album includes duets with international superstars Ariana Grande and Nicole Scherzinger. Local PBS affiliates in each tour market will begin airing the television performance of Cinema throughout March, giving fans the opportunity to pledge support to the station and receive great seats to the upcoming 2016 performances.
Thrilling audiences for over 20 years, Andrea Bocelli exploded onto the world’s stage with his hit, “Con te Partiro” (and later its arrangement as a duet with Sarah Brightman with the title “Time To Say Goodbye”) and has since sold 80 million records and performed countless worldwide tours. Today, Bocelli is known for being one of the greatest singing talents in the world.
