Get ready for your dose of pop opera as Il Divo hit Dubai on 5 October 2012. The operatic pop group, created by Simon Cowell, consists of Frenchman Sébastien Izambard, Spaniard Carlos Marin, American David Miller and Switzerland's urs Bühler; and was recently named Artist of the Decade at the Classic BRIT Awards.
Il Divo are the most successful international musical break-out story of the millennium, selling more than 25 million albums and pioneering the classical crossover genre. Their ground-breaking success has brought an entirely new sound to vocal music and the group has more than 150 gold and platinum awards in 33 countries.
With a new show designed by Creative Director Brian Burke (Artistic Director ofCeline Dion's five-year run of A New Day at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas), the 2012 tour a stunner and despite their SiCo origins, Il Divo are more about the music than the drama. Their first four albums, which feature songs in French, Italian, English and Spanish, have earned them gold and platinum awards in over 33 countries, making them a global musical force to reckon with. Plus, they're all cute too! Reason enough to check it out!
Hot tip: Shangri-La Dubai is the official hotel partner of the show, so if you're hoping to bump into the boys before or after the show that's the first place we'd suggest you look...
