Andrea Bocelli returns to Phoenix, Arizona December 2, 2015 @ 7:30PM at US Airways Center. This performance kicks off Mr. Bocelli's December 2015 North American tour.
“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.
Bocelli recently was invited to Davos Switzerland during the World Economic Forum where he was honored with a coveted Crystal Award for helping improve the world through his music. Bocelli received the award in recognition of the work his Andrea Bocelli Foundation is doing on behalf of research for the visually impaired and his foundation's ongoing work in Haiti. “I think that music gives us joy and serenity. And in a certain way it helps the world to be a better place,” said Bocelli about being recognized with this award.
Thrilling audiences for over 20 years, Andrea Bocelli exploded onto the world’s stage with his hit, “Con te Partiro” (and later its 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).
