"When DPAC was being built I'd think about superstars like Il Divo and other large acts that used to routinely bypass the Triangle. They are national and international superstars, but until DPAC opened there was never a large concert theatre that could accommodate a major tour like this. It's these one-of-a-kind, big events that we love best at DPAC," said Bob Klaus, GM of DPAC.
The world’s first and still the best classical crossover group – Urs Buhler, Carlos Marin, David Miller and Sebastien Izambard – have sold over 26 million albums, enjoyed over 50 number ones, chalked up 160 gold and platinum sales in over 33 countries. Proving the lack of geographical boundaries to their romantic and timeless repertoire, Il Divo have become a global touring phenomenon. Their 2012 fourth world tour saw them perform an incredible 134 shows across 46 countries on 6 continents.
Their amazing career knows no bounds. Highlights include appearing at the opening and closing ceremony of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, touring as special guests to Barbra Streisand, a 2009 performance at President Obama’s Purple Inauguration Ball and recently at a special concert for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee at Windsor Castle.
Many of the tracks for the new Best of Il Divo show have been chosen by their fans all over the world and will include favorites ‘Somewhere’, ‘Unbreak My Heart’, ‘Unchained Melody’ and ‘Adagio’ as well as several new songs such as ‘My Heart Will Go On’ (in Italian), ‘I Will Always Love You’ (in Spanish) and ‘I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You’ (English) from their recent global Greatest Hits album release.
Urs Buhler says, “As a singer you can never take for granted what you do, every note is a balancing act. But every night I step on stage so proud of what we do. I have learned so much these past 8 years, had so many wonderful experiences and cherished every moment. These Best of Il Divo shows for us, and hopefully our fans, mark what has been an incredible journey so far.”
