Andrea Bocelli in Concert Christmas Romance

November 28, 2015 at the O2 Arena Prague

The famous Italian tenor returns to Prague O2 arena with his Christmas Romance concert on November 28th, 2015.

Andrea Bocelli  dazzled the packed O2 arena when he was last here in 2013 and demand for the performance was so high that tickets sold out long before he went on stage. For those fans who weren’t able to see Bocelli in person, a promise was made that the world famous singer would return to Prague again soon.

The charismatic classical and pop music singer, whose star rose rapidly during the 90s, and who has sold over 80 million albums worldwide, is an acclaimed ambassador of Italian music who, this April, received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in Miami.

Also this year, Bocelli has released yet another successful album of opera, Manon Lescaut, along with Plácido Domingo and Ana Maria Martinéz. The lyrics to the song Tomorrow in Milan (“La Forza del Sorriso”) are sung to the music of composer Andrea Morricone (son of Ennio Morricone) and the song has become the soundtrack for Expo 2015.

Bocelli’s concerts are famous for their diverse repertoire drawing from many genres, and for outstanding duets with such stars as Zucchero, Sarah Brightman, Tony Bennett, Christina Aguilera and Celine Dion. At the beginning of his career, Bocelli enjoyed the patronage of stars such as Luciano Pavarotti and Zucchero. But it was the song “Con Te Partiró”, that catapulted him to worldwide fame and which he later sang in an unforgettable duet with Sarah Brightman as “Time to Say Goodbye”.

Bocelli’s Christmas Romance will see the Maestro perform classical arias from the most famous Italian and international operas. He will also delight the crowd with songs from his album, Love in Portofino, and possibly one or two surprises, and of course, songs reflecting the Christmas spirit will be part of the Repertoire as well.  The tenor will be accompanied by the Czech National Symphonic Orchestra along with its choir conducted by Maestro Marcello Rota  and other special guests, who will be announced later.

Tickets will be available through Ticketportal and at www.andreabocelli.com/tickets from October 6, 2014, with prices from 950 CZK to 12.500 CZK for a VIP Platinum package.

The VIP Platinum package includes tickets to the best seats right in front of the stage and cocktails before the concert.

Andrea Bocelli UK and Ireland tour 2014

Lindsey Stirling announced as Special Guest

Chart-topping violinist and YouTube Sensation

Youth Choirs to Perform Live with Bocelli for thousands of fans

One of the most exciting emerging talents in the classical music world will join the maestro Andrea Bocelli for his UK and Ireland tour. Lindsey Stirling is the American violinist who is revolutionising the classical world, amassing over 757 million YouTube views, topping the Billboard charts and selling out tours worldwide. Lindsey masterfully fuses classical violin styles with futuristic electronic beats. Her latest album Shatter Me topped the US Billboard Top Classical Albums, Dance/Electronic Albums and Independent Albums charts when it arrived in April. Like Bocelli before her, she is bringing classical music to new audiences and generations.

“The stage is a magical place,” says Andrea, “one can experience something very intimate: the compelling relationship and harmony between two artists, when they come together in music. I am really excited to see what will happen with Lindsey Stirling – an eclectic artist, full of energy and talent.  Music and dance coexist within her. Lindsey has a truly contagious sound!”

“I am excited, nervous, honoured, and even shocked to think that I get to perform with the greatest opera singer in the world,” adds Lindsey, “Wow, where is my violin? I need to start practicing immediately for this! But really, this is a huge honour and I can’t wait.”

The UK and Ireland will spend 4 nights in the company of Andrea Bocelli in November, a chance to revel in the romance and majesty of this stunning performer. And Andrea is supporting more new talent by inviting youth choirs to perform with him live on stage in front of thousands, one choir for each of the English cities he visits. To be in with a chance of winning this once in a lifetime prize, choirs should send a video of themselves performing to info@kililive.com by October 15th, stating which show they are entering the competition for. The world’s premiere classical music star, Andrea Bocelli returns to arenas for 4 nights, with shows featuring the repertoire that has made him famous throughout the world as a unique artist able to cross boundaries between classical and pop. While some stars sing ‘crossover’, Bocelli is able to keep his classical and pop repertories separate, excelling at both as distinct disciplines. 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.” He 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. Bocelli brings both that intimacy and the grandeur of operatic masterpieces to UK and Ireland Arenas with Lindsey Stirling making this a night of musical celebration.
