Il Divo, the world’s foremost classical crossover quartet, accompanied by an orchestra, will perform at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on June 14 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 23 at noon.
Il Divo is Carlos Marin, Sebastien Izambard, David Miller and Urs Buhler. The “Il Divo 2012 World Tour,” the group’s fourth, follows the release of the quartet’s latest album, Wicked Game and provides a new mark of achievement for the signature vocal blend and unique operatic arrangements which have captivated millions and launched a classical crossover sensation. Their last tour in 2009, “An Evening with Il Divo,” saw sold out shows across 130 cities. The group received the Billboard Breakthrough Award for one of the biggest grossing tours of the year.
With a new show designed by Creative Director Brian Burke (Artistic Director of “La Reve” and Celine Dion’s five-year run of “A New Day” at Caesars Palace, both in Las Vegas), and performed with the Il Divo orchestra, this performance promises to incorporate stunning visuals and musical mix of fan favorites as well as songs from the new album, Wicked Game.
“Il Divo is the perfect modern fusion of opera, theatre and concert performance. It is a privilege, as a director, to create a visual landscape inviting the audience on a theatrical journey of their music,” said Burke.
Wicked Game, the group’s fifth studio album, includes the title track (a dramatic reworking of the Chris Isaak classic), an emotionally beautiful rendering of Roy Orbison’s “Crying,” a heavenly song inspired by Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” called “Dove L’Amore” and an unforgettable version of the “Time to Say Goodbye.”
Recently named Artist of the Decade at the Classic BRITS, Il Divo is the most successful international musical break-out story of the millennium, selling more than 25 million albums and pioneering the classical crossover genre. The group’s ground-breaking success has brought an entirely new sound to vocal music and they have achieved more than 150 gold and platinum awards in 33 countries. Their first four albums, Il Divo, Ancora, Siempre and The Promise have achieved 50 #1 album chart positions internationally.
