Famed vocal superstars "Il Divo" (Spain’s Carlos Marin, America’s David Miller, France’s Sebastien Izambard, and Switzerland’s Urs Buhler) announce the U.S. leg of their “For Once In My Life Tour.” The tour will feature a dynamic live show celebrating Motown and filled with Il Divo’s hits from their vast catalog of songs with an incredible stage production.Produced by Nederlander Concerts, the 15-city U.S. leg will kick off August 12th at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts and stop at the Florida Theatre on Sunday, August 29, 2021 at 7 p.m. For once in my life: a celebration of Motown (decca gold) is set to release on July 16th.
“We are beyond excited to be creating a brand-new world tour centered around our new album “For Once In My Life”. We have spent the last two years creating this album, which pays tribute to some of the greatest music in American pop-culture. And now, to finally be able to present our versions of these great songs to the world, and to get back onstage and sing them for live audiences... well it makes us feel very emotional. We have very much missed performing together and enjoying the connection with our audiences and our fans. We just can’t wait for opening night,” said David Miller, Il Divo.
The tour supports their 10th studio album, For Once In My Life: A Celebration Of Motown (Decca Gold), set for release on July 16th. Il Divo’s celebratory collection of Motown classics include their distinctive take on chart-topping songs such as “I’ll Be There” (The Jackson 5), “For Once In My Life” (Stevie Wonder), and “Say You, Say Me” (Lionel Richie). Additionally, the quartet introduce brand new collaborations with superstar group Boyz II Men (“I’ll Make Love To You”), the legendary Smokey Robinson (“The Tracks Of My Tears”) and the peerless vocals of singer/songwriter Marvin Gaye (“Aint No Mountain High Enough”). The 10-track album truly showcases the quartet’s incredible vocal talents as they pay tribute to the legendary artists and label that has been a part of the musical fabric of America and the world for over 60 years. You can pre-order the album here.
