Legendary tenor Andrea Bocelli will perform for the first time in Detroit in over 12 years at Joe Louis Arena on Sunday, December 14 at 7:30 p.m. Bocelli will be joined by conductor Eugene Kohn, soprano Maria Aleida, featured violinist Caroline Campbell and guest artist and Tony Award-winner Heather Headley.
“Bocelli's vocal prowess in both sacred repertoire and popular ballads is undeniable. His powerful, heroic timbre, along with his range, profound control and commanding presence, makes for an overwhelming live experience,” raved the Orange County Register.
Thrilling audiences for over 20 years, Andrea Bocelli exploded onto the world’s stage with his hit, “Con te Partiro” (and later it’s arrangement as a duet with Sarah Brightman with the title “Time To Say Goodbye”), and has since sold 80 million records and performed countless worldwide tours. Today, Bocelli is known for being one of the greatest singing talents in the world.
In 2013, Bocelli earned his Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance from The Conservatory of Music, Giacomo Puccini in La Spezia, Italy. Bocelli also released Love in Portofino in 2013, a CD/DVD compilation featuring his breathtaking performance in Portofino, Italy in August 2012. More recently, Bocelli has been nominated for two 2014 Billboard Latin Music Awards, including Latin Pop Album of the Year and Latin Pop Album Artist of the Year (Solo).
