Sheffield Arena show in 2022 for world-famous singer Andrea Bocelli - here's what you need to know
Superstar tenor Andrea Bocelli is visiting Sheffield on a tour of the UK and Ireland in 2022.
Andrea Bocelli is one of the most celebrated singers in modern history, performing at major international events including the Olympic Games and the World Cup, as well as his own sell-out arena shows around the world.
He has a Golden Globe, seven Classical Brits and seven World Music Awards under his belt, plus a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His 2018 album release, Si, reached No.1 in both the US and UK charts.
His album, Believe, was created during the pandemic, as an uplifting personal collection of songs celebrating the power of music to soothe the soul.
The Italian multi-instrumentalist performed live from the iconic venues of Teatro Regio di Parma and the Duomo Cathedral in Milan, the latter show watched by more than three million online viewers, making it the largest simultaneous audience for a classical livestream in YouTube history.
Andrea Bocelli has collaborated with a host of A-list stars including Luciano Pavarotti, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Céline Dion, Alison Krauss and Tony Bennett.
He said: “Good music brings with it a powerful message of peace and fellowship, teaching us about beauty, and helping us to open our hearts and minds.”
The Andrea Bocelli Foundation is partnering with non-profit organisation PLUS1 so that for every ticket sold, £1 will support BF Educational Projects in Haiti, empowering children from the most vulnerable areas of the country.
