Andrea Bocelli to bring classical shows to UK arenas in 2012
Date Posted: 29/11/11
Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli will be visiting the UK next year for four arena shows.
The singer, who is the biggest-selling solo artist in the history of classical music, has shipped over 70 million albums during his career.
Kicking things off in Dublin on Tuesday November 6th, Bocelli then moves on to Belfast two nights later before he performs at Birmingham's LG Arena on Saturday November 10th.
Liverpool's Echo Arena plays host the following evening, with fans booking hotels near The O2 arena able to see the star in action on Wednesday November 14th.
Bocelli is known for marrying the traditions of operatic brilliance with modern music, which has seen him release hit albums Sogno, Cieli di Toscana, Andrea and Amore.
Earlier this year he recorded Concerto: One Night in Central Park, which features tracks like Amazing Grace, Ave Maria, Nessun Dorma and New York, New York with Tony Bennett.
