THE WORLD’S LEADING CLASSICAL CROSSOVER QUARTET AND MEZZO SOPRANO UNITE TO TOUR TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME
EUROPEAN TOUR, MARCH - APRIL 2013
TICKETS GO ON SALE FROM FRIDAY OCTOBER 26
IL DIVO & Katherine Jenkins, the world's foremost classical crossover quartet & mezzo soprano, will unite for the very first time to perform together as part of their combined European Tour in March & April, 2013.
Both artists have captivated millions around the world whilst at the forefront of a classical-crossover revolution in recent years. With over 30 million album sales between them, both Il Divo and Katherine have experienced stratospheric rises since their recording debuts in 2004. Whilst they have crossed paths at various musical events and TV shows, they have never actually taken to the public stage together. This tour will see both artists perform with a full orchestra, their own unique classical interpretations of popular songs, whilst also dueting together for the very first time.
Tickets go on sale beginning Friday October 26, at 9am and exclusive VIP Meet & Greet Ticket packages will be available. The tour will see this phenomenal quartet- Carlos Marin, Sebastien Izambard, David Miller and Urs Buhler & stunning mezzo soprano – perform at leading venues across Europe.
Proving the lack of geographical boundaries to their romantic and timeless repertoire, both artists have toured extensively across the globe. Il Divo have just embarked on the final South American leg of their 9 month & 6 continents 4th World Tour, whilst Katherine, in the past few months, has been on tour in South Africa, China, Japan & Taiwan as well as her sell out UK tour earlier in 2012.
As Il Divo gear up for the release of their Greatest Hits album, and Katherine Jenkins her first ever festive collection of Christmas songs this November 26, both artists look forward to working together in the new year on finalising the approach to these special co-headline shows, which are sure to deliver a gamut of timeless fan favourites.
Sebastien Izambard from Il Divo remarks: "We’ve long been friends with Katherine, and as we looked to stage a tour around our Greatest Hits release, we thought what better way to approach it than to offer our fans the ultimate evening of classical crossover music by inviting Katherine to perform and also join us on some brand new duets. We hope we can make some wonderful music together!"
Katherine comments "Having known the boys for such a long a time its great to finally be working on such an exciting project together."
