Il Divo Australian Tour

The world's most successful classical crossover group Il Divo arrive in Melbourne today to announce a national Australian Tour for 2012. The first show kicks off on Valentines Day in Sydney, at the Sydney Opera House on 14 February 2012. Il Divo will then travel onto Melbourne, Hunter Valley, Brisbane and Perth for the month of February.

Fans can look forward to experiencing the emotion, beauty and power of Il Divo's unique vocals and operatic arrangements as they take you on a journey that combines opera, pop and musical theatre.

"We're so excited to be kicking off our 2012 tour in Australia. Valentines Day, performing at the Sydney Opera House is going to be such a memorable start to a world tour... it really feels like coming home. It's a country full of my favourite things: Tim Tams, Whale Beach, shopping on Chapel Street and one of the best zoos in the world. We can't wait to have the time whilst on tour to enjoy it all!" - Sebastien Izambard (Il Divo)

With more than 25 million album sales, 150 gold and platinum discs, more than 2 million concert tickets sold and the only crossover classical album 'Ancora' ever to enter the US Billboard Top 200 at number 1.

With a new show designed by Creative Director, Brian Burke (Artistic Director of 'La Reve' & Celine Dion's five year run of 'A New Day' at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas) and the support of the Il Divo band, the 2012 tour promises to incorporate a stunning visual and musical mix of fan favourites as well as premiering songs from their eagerly anticipated 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" - Brian Burke, Creative Director.

The record-breaking quartet - Swiss tenor Urs Buhler, baritone Carlos Marin from Spain, French pop artist Sebastien Izambard and tenor David Miller from the USA first came together in 2003, the culmination of an exhaustive search by music producer Simon Cowell to find four singers of distinctive individual gifts who could, as a group, create musical magic.

Il Divo's 'Wicked Game' is released on 4 November 2011 through Sony Music Entertainment. Don't miss your chance to experience the magic of Il Divo live in 2012.
