Iconic Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli returns to the legendary Madison Square Garden in NYC for his 2023 US Holiday Tour. Due to an incredible response from fans, the global artist announced a second date and will now perform on both December 13 and 14.
The two-night event promises to be an engagement to remember, following the annual succession of sold-out shows at the venue, including last year’s performance with his family to celebrate the release of their No.1 album, and first holiday album together, A Family Christmas.
The upcoming tour includes ten show dates in major cities across the nation, including San Antonio, Dallas, Louisville, Boston, Philadelphia, Hartford, Baltimore, and two nights in Hollywood, FL at Hard Rock Live. This will be Bocelli’s first time in Louisville with the Louisville Orchestra and his first time performing in Hartford in 25 years. Then, Bocelli’s show in Baltimore will be included as part of the grand opening season for the new venue, CFG Bank Arena, and his first show in the city, performing with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
The tour will feature performances from Bocelli’s extensive repertoire, including music in honor of the Holiday Season, with selections from his recent No.1 album A Family Christmas, his uplifting solo album Believe, as well as a selection of arias, his beloved crossover hits, and famed love songs.
The announcement arrives on the heels of a spectacular spring tour in the US, which included two sold-out nights at the famed Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on May 9 and May 10. Ahead of the Hollywood Bowl dates, Bocelli was invited to perform at the Coronation of King Charles III and Camilla in London on May 7, a historic evening that also included appearances by Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. In April, Bocelli’s new documentary THE JOURNEY: A Music Special from Andrea Bocelli debuted in select theaters around the world.
The film featured world-class musical performances with intimate conversations on horseback across the awe-inspiring Italian countryside, and included appearances from Tori Kelly, 2CELLOS, TAYA, Michael W. Smith, Tauren Wells, and more.
