Andrea Bocelli Unwraps Arena Shows for the Holidays

This holiday season Andrea Bocelli, the Italian tenor, will be embarking on a six city special U.S. tour to support the deluxe DVD/CD combo version of “My Christmas,” first released in 2009.

Bocelli, who has been nominated for a Grammy award, will kick off his outing with a performance at Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 2, followed by several arena shows across the country.  Currently the short outing is scheduled to wrap up in Las Vegas on December 11.

According to a recent press release, conductor Eugene Kohn will be joining Bocelli for the shows, in addition to soprano Alexia Voulgaridou and Heather Headley, Tony Award winner.

Ticketmaster is running a ticket promotion for fans.  Tickets that are purchased on or before September 19 for any of the shows except for the concert in Houston will received a free copy of “My Christmas” or “The Best of Andrea Bocelli – Vivere.”

“My Christmas” was released by Bocelli in 2009.  Over 5 million album copies have sold worldwide.  On November 9, the deluxe edition, which will include a DVD featuring the David Foster produced live PBS concert, will be released to retailers.
