Tickets for Andrea Bocelli at the O2 Arena
"If God would have a singing voice, he would sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli”
Having played to tens of thousands of fans across the UK in 2009, multi-million selling Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli will return in the autumn of 2012
In possession of one of the finest voices in the world, Bocelli emerged as a vocal phenomenon in the 1990s and has since gone on to become one of the most successful artists of all time, selling over 65 million albums.
Bocelli is the singular, superb voice that opera had been waiting for, a real breath of fresh air in a world – that of the opera – which risked forgetting its own popular origins, so fiercely attached was it to its elitist, somewhat shaky pedestal. By marrying the glorious tradition of operatic singing to the sensibilities and aesthetics of modern music, Bocelli has captured the hearts of audiences across the globe without ever sacrificing the integrity of his art for the sake of popularity.
A refined and modern singer, whose use of his voice combines the unmistakable power of the heroic tone with the youthful fragrance of a graceful tenor and fortified by an unusually polished timbre, Bocelli can sing anything from Verdi to Puccini, from Mascagni to Massenet; he is an artist who scrupulously studies the score - evident also by the way in which he does not emulate the great masters of the past. Bocelli brings his own interpretation, his own approach, to each role.
His achievements and accolades are too many to number; he has excelled in the operatic, classical and popular spheres, selling over 65 million albums worldwide, recording seven complete operas, releasing more than a dozen hit records, performing all around the world. Quite simply, Bocelli is a phenomenon, and these exclusive shows represent an unmissable opportunity to witness a genuine superstar.
