One of the world's greatest classical-opera stars, Andrea Bocelli will return to Australia for a five-date national tour commencing late October.With a three-decade career that has seen the esteemed Tuscan tenor sell more than 90 million albums globally, his voice is still one of the most recognisable on the planet.
To be joined by a 70-piece orchestra and 60-person choir, Bocelli will headline concerts in Brisbane, Sydney, Hunter Valley, Melbourne and Perth.
"The Australian tour dates are not just concerts to me, they are opportunities for us to immerse ourselves in musical beauty on a grand scale," Andrea says – who Celine Dion has described as having the singing voice of God.
"For these upcoming shows, my aim is to restore some serenity and enter gently into people's hearts.
"If my previous tours are anything to go by, I've always found Australian audiences to be passionate, enthusiastic and friendly.
"With its ability to inspire and heal, music is its own language and I never tire of performing these songs – even the ones I've been singing in concert for more than 25 years – because they move me so deeply.
"Music is essential nourishment for the human spirit. What better way to celebrate the joys of life than through song."
Maestro Bocelli will uplift audiences with a stunning selection of soul-stirring arias, enduring love songs and beloved crossover hits.
Tickets on sale from 1pm (local time) on 17 June.
