THE WORLD’S GREATEST TENOR SINGS THE
WORLD’S GREATEST MOVIE SONGS, LIVE! aFrom new album ‘Cinema’
One of the world’s great voices, Andrea Bocelli returns to the UK & Ireland celebrating the greatest movie songs of all time.
Showcasing his latest, epic album ‘Cinema,’ the tour will feature stunning pieces from the classic cinema soundtracks along with arias and duets from the most legendary operas and other classic pieces from the artist’s repertoire.
‘Cinema’ made history in the UK by reaching Number 3 in the Official Charts, crowning Bocelli as the only classical artist to achieve ten Top 10 albums.
Bocelli reunited with his musical dream team for the recording – including David Foster, Humberto Gatica and Tony Renis who worked together on the trailblazing success of Bocelli’s ‘Amore.’
Together, they explored theme songs featured in films such as “Doctor Zhivago”, “Love Story”, “The Godfather”, “Life is Beautiful”, “Gladiator”, “The Postman”, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and many more, as well as popular songs from stage musicals, immortalised by their film versions, such as “West Side Story” and “Evita.” A duet with pop superstar Ariana Grande on ‘E Piu Ti Penso’ from ‘Once Upon A Time In America’ completed the stellar line up.
From Ennio Morricone to Leonard Bernstein, these songs represent modern classics and over 4 nights, Bocelli will transport audiences to these epic film sets, as well as performing some of his best-loved songs.
Andrea says, “It has been a dream of mine for decades to bring to life great film soundtracks,” says Bocelli, “They are an artistic treasure trove and a soundtrack to many peoples lives, experiences and precious memories. Bringing the ‘Cinema’ album to live concert audiences is an opportunity I could not miss.”
The biggest selling solo classical artist of all time, Bocelli has performed for four U.S. presidents, two popes and the royal family, as well as at ceremonies for the Olympic Games and the World Cup. He has been praised by such luminaries as Luciano Pavarotti, Franco Corelli, Zubin Mehta, Jose Carreras, Lorin Maazel, Renee Fleming and Celine Dion, who once introduced him by saying: “I heard someone say that if God had a singing voice, he would sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli.”
Andrea Bocelli has sold over 80 million albums around the world, his 1999 Sacred Arias album has sold over 5 million copies, making it the best selling classical recording of all time. His pop career, including the much loved Time To Say Goodbye, a duet with Sarah Brightman that reached Number 1 in charts around the world in 1998, may have drawn millions in, but Bocelli has always enthusiastically shared his classical calling.
