NEW YORK (March 2015) – Andrea Bocelli will return to the US for his annual December Holiday Tour, bringing his unmatched repertoire of soaring arias, famed love songs and crossover hits to fans in select cities.

“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.
This past October, Bocelli released simultaneous recordings, Opera: The Ultimate Collection featuring beloved opera aria favorites and Puccini’s Manon Lescaut in October 2014. Also this year, Bocelli was nominated for two Billboard Latin Music Awards, including Latin Pop Album of the Year and Latin Pop Album Artist of the Year (Solo). In 2013, Bocelli earned his Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance from The Conservatory of Music, Giacomo Puccini in La Spezia, Italy.
