Il Divo bring their Amor & Pasion Tour to Manchester next week, as they return to the UK for an arena tour.
The record breaking classical crossover group that has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide and launched their massive 2016 world tour in Mexico City, as fittingly the new show, set to play over 100 times across 92 cities and 29 countries, is based on a journey through the greatest melodies from Central and South America plus new treatments of Il Divo’s biggest known hits.
Amor & Passion is Il Divo’s seventh studio album and the accompanying tour is their most ambitious yet. Inspired by the rich Latin repertoire spanning a century of traditional tangos, smouldering boleros and classic mambas, this show will, for the first time, incorporate dancers and a Latin percussion section joining the Il Divo orchestra.
The flavours and sultry rhythms of Spain and Cuba, Argentina and Mexico have set the stage for Il Divo as you have never seen them before. From the standout tango Por Una Cabeza, to each member performing a solo song for the first time in an Il Divo show, to highlights such as David Miller from the group braving the traditional Argentinian bandoneon.
Carlos Marin reveals: “This new show is without doubt filled with more passion and surprises than ever before. We can’t wait to take it around the world”
The new tour follows the success of the Amor & Pasion album, produced by Latin Grammy winner Julio Reyes and released last November, it has already received such accolades across the world as: a nomination for the Latin Billboard Awards Latin Pop Album Artist of the Year (duo or Group), Classic Album of the Year Award at the Japanese RIA 30th Japan Gold Disc Awards, and gold album sales in the UK & Spain.
Il Divo perform at Manchester Arena on 14 May 2016.
