Andrea Bocelli Is Coming To South Africa!

Andrea Bocelli Is Coming To Town!

One of the biggest classical legends will be taking centre stage for TWO shows in South Africa this April! Andrea Bocelli has recorded 15 solo studio albums of both pop and classical music, three greatest hits albums and nine complete opera. For his latest release, Si, Andrea Bocelli has teamed up with some of the hottest musical stars on the planet. It is his first album of new material in 14 years – 16 brand new songs which celebrate love, family, faith and hope.

At the centre of the new record is a spine-tingling duet between father-and-son, as Matteo Bocelli steps into the limelight to duet with Andrea on Fall On Me – a beautifully poignant song which reflects the bond between parent and child.

Bocelli’s humble manner belies his international status as one of the world’s biggest classical stars – he’s sung for Popes, Presidents and royalty, performed in all the greatest concert halls and opera houses around the world, and sold 85 million records. He has performed at major international events including the Olympic Games and the World Cup, as well as his own sell-out arena shows. He has a Golden Globe, 7 Classical BRITs and 7 World Music Awards under his belt, plus a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Andrea Bocelli is proud to return to South Africa, where he will be performing with a full 140-piece symphony orchestra and choir. In Johannesburg, he will perform with the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra and the Symphony Choir of Johannesburg and in Cape Town with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir.

The concert will be split into two parts. For the first part, fans will get to experience Andrea Bocelli perform some of the most famous opera arias.

Bryan Ferry - Coming To Pretoria In 2019

What Is It?

Brian Ferry is seen as an icon of personal cool, carried through in his songs. He came to prominence as the lead vocalist and main songwriter with the glam art rock band Roxy Music. They achieved three no. 1 albums and 10 singles which reached the top 10 in the UK between 1972 and 1982. The singles included Love is the Drug, Dance Away, Jealous Guy, Avalon and More Than This among others.

As an artist and musician, Ferry possesses the rare distinction of being regarded as both classic and contemporary – an accomplishment achieved by both his recordings with Roxy Music and the range and intensity of his solo albums. This may be the last chance for South African fans to watch him performing all his hits live. So, be sure to join in to dance and sing along.
