Multinational pop/opera crossover group Il Divo sings at Sands Bethlehem Event Center on Sept. 30, 2016
From a press release:
Il Divo – the record-breaking classical crossover group that has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide – will bring their “Amor & Pasion Tour” to North America in support of their upcoming album of the same name, due for release on Nov. 13 on Sony Music. They will embark on their Live Nation-promoted engagement on Sept. 20, 2016 and will make stops in nearly 40 cities throughout North America, including the Sands Bethlehem Event Center on Friday, Sept. 30 at 8 p.m.
Tickets, which are $69.50-$99.50, go on sale Friday, Nov. 13 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at sandseventcenter.com, the Event Center box office, ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 800-745-3000.
“Amor & Pasion” is Il Divo’s seventh studio album and their most ambitious yet. Working with Colombian producer and multiple Latin Grammy Award-winner Julio Reyes Copello, Il Divo has recorded 12 songs spanning a century of traditional tangos, smoldering boleros, and classic mambas. The flavors and sultry rhythms of Spain and Cuba, Argentina and Mexico promise to set the stage for a very different Il Divo tour next year.
“Everybody get ready to see and hear a new Il Divo with even more passion, fire, and for the first time, with rhythm! Get ready to move to the Latin beats of ‘Amor & Pasion.’ Our new show will take you on a journey through the greatest melodies from Central and South America, plus new treatments on your favorite Il Divo hits,” Urs Buhler said.
Brought together by Simon Cowell in 2003, Il Divo (Buhler, Sebastien Izambard, Carlos Marin, and David Miller) spearheaded an entirely new musical genre with their groundbreaking debut album in 2004. The multinational four piece have gone on to achieve unparalleled success around the world with 30 million album sales, 50 No. 1 records, 160 gold and platinum awards in over 33 countries, and four sold-out world tours.
