International superstar Andrea Bocelli
returns to the U.S. for select concert dates beginning November 30 at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City. This not-to-be-missed show will feature the tenor performing some of the world's most famous opera arias as well as love songs from his platinum-selling smash Amore
. The CD marked Bocelli's highest debut ever and has remained on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and the top of the Classical Crossover chart since its release in January. On November 7, the highly anticipated follow-up to Amore, Andrea Bocelli: Under The Desert Sky
, will be released on Decca/Sugar.
Just in time for the holidays, Under The Desert Sky
features live performances from Amore as well as bonus tracks including Neil Diamond
's "September Morn" and a duet with Tony Award®-winner Heather Headley
on "The Prayer." Other highlights include the classic "Besame Mucho," the inspiring "Because We Believe" and a heartfelt duet with Katharine McPhee
on "Can't Help Falling In Love." The beautiful Lake Las Vegas Resort was the backdrop for the concert which was also recorded as part of PBS Great Performance series.
The media has embraced Bocelli as well as affirming his position as one of the most romantic voices in the world. The Los Angeles Times stated Amore is a "romantic bonbon" with a "dreamy delivery" while the New York Post concurred giving the album a "4 star" review. Surrounding the release of Amore, Andrea sang for millions in a massive TV campaign that included two nights alongside Grammy-winning Amore producer David Foster on American Idol
, an unprecedented three segments on the Today Show, and performances at the Closing Ceremony of the Winter Olympics and the NBA All Star Weekend. Look for Andrea Bocelli on tour.
