The foursome wowed the crowd with a number of classic and modern hits, including breathtaking renditions of “Hallelujah” and “Come What May,” as well as a Frank Sinatra medley created specifically for the Las Vegas shows.
The international quartet is comprised of tenor Urs Buhler of Switzerland, baritone Carlos Marin of Spain, pop artist Sébastien Izambard of France and tenor David Miller from the United States. The foursome has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, achieved over 50 number one records, received 160 gold and platinum sales awards in over 33 countries and staged four groundbreaking world tours. Il Divo first came to fruition in 2003 and have been making music together for more than a decade.
The multi-platinum group, who most recently brought their Amor & Pasion tour to North America in support of their seventh studio album of the same name, will treat fans to the ultimate Il Divo experience aboard the Royal Caribbean Brilliance of the Seas Cruise. The four-day cruise, to take place November 30 to December 4 will travel from Tampa to Cozumel.
