Derwent Entertainment Centre: Il Divo … Timeless Tour Australia 2018

image

The original and still the world’s best classical cross over group, Il Divo, are heading our way in October for a national tour. Australia is one of the most successful territories for the multi-national vocal quartet, who have become one of the best-selling music groups in the world.

Il Divo have become a global touring phenomenon – they have sold over 30 million albums worldwide, achieved more than 50 No.1 records, received over 160 Gold and Platinum sales awards in 33 countries and staged four ground-breaking world tours. They have performed in front of the world’s great and good – from President Barack Obama to Her Majesty the Queen. They have shared microphones with fellow superstars – from Barbra Streisand to Celine Dion and their sell-out concerts have been attended by Hollywood icons including Tom Hanks and Robert De Niro.

The supergroup comprises of Switzerland’s Urs Bühler, Spaniard Carlos Marín, the USA’s David Miller, and Sébastien Izambard of France. Il Divo came together following an international search that discovered the fabulous four. They have released seven studio albums to date, most recently in 2015. They are set to release another album in August in Australia, through Universal Music, with a brand-new single going to radio in mid-May. Says Carlos Marín of their pending tour “we can’t wait to return to your beautiful country and bring our music to you, including all the classics and songs from our new album Timeless! We are very excited to be coming back as we miss our fantastic fans in Australia.”

They will be supported by one of Australia’s favourite stars, Marina Prior, whom has become known as our leading lady of musical theatre. Marina has played over thirty lead roles in such shows as Les Misérables, Camelot (opposite Richard Harris), The Phantom of The Opera, West Side Story, Guys & Dolls and Hello Dolly. She has also performed with symphony orchestras throughout Australia including a critically acclaimed Australasian concert tour with international tenor, José Carreras.

John Foreman will be conductor for Marina Prior. John is a musical director, event director, pianist and composer, plus a well-recognised face on Australian television. His compositions have been performed by artists ranging from Vanessa Amorosi to José Carreras. He’s the man behind many of the biggest events in entertainment.

Il Divo’s sold-out Amor & Pasión dates in 2016 had critics praising their ability to “ignite hearts” (Brighton Argus) with their effortless charm and “magnificent vocals” (Belfast Live). Their romantic and timeless repertoire always find a way to move their fans. Il Divo are the success story of four people, from different nationalities and backgrounds, who have proven to the world that music transcends boarders and definitions.

These shows are not to be missed – be sure to get your tickets quickly.
