AMOR & PASION TOUR 2016
LATIN LOVE SONGS & ALL YOUR FAVOURITE HITS
Carlos, Urs, David and Seb are delighted to announce that they will be bringing their AMOR & PASION tour to Poland in 2016, performing songs off the new highly anticipated album alongside all of their biggest hits.
AMOR & PASION is Il Divo’s seventh studio album and their most ambitious yet. Working with Columbian producer and multiple Latin Grammy Award®-winner Julio Reyes Copello, Il Divo have recorded 12 songs spanning a century of traditional tangos, smoldering boleros and classic mambas. The flavors and sultry rhythms of Spain and Cuba, Argentina and Mexico promise to set the stage for a very different Il Divo tour next year. David Miller says “If you think our new album, AMOR & PASION is full of songs that make you want to dance, then just wait till you see this tour! It’s going to be a huge mix of tangos, rhumbas, boleros, mambos, and of course some new versions of your favorite IL DIVO standards. Come spend an evening with us, and let love & passion fill your heart”.
The tracks that make up the album are mostly familiar hits – such as Julio Iglesias’ iconic A Las Mujeres Que Yo Ame (To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before) and Gloria Estefan’s resonant Si Voy A Perderte (Don’t Wanna Lose You), along with Himno De La Alegria, an exciting Latin treatment of Beethoven’s Ode To Joy and one of the most classic tangos of all time, Por Una Cabeza which was written in 1935 and was used in both Schindlers List and the Al Pacino film ‘Scent Of A Woman’. Of the new album and tour Sebastien said;
“In the studio, singing every track, I really wanted to dance. Corny as it sounds, I love every one of these songs. We are really excited about taking Amor & Pasion and this incredible music on the road, when we embark on our fifth world tour in 2016. Maybe we will finally get to dance!”
Brought together by Simon Cowell in 2003, Il Divo (Urs Buhler, Sebastien Izambard, Carlos Marin and David Miller), spearheaded an entirely new musical genre with their groundbreaking debut album in 2004. The multi national four piece have gone on to achieve unparalleled success around the world with 30 millions album sales, 50 Number 1 Records, 160 gold and platinum awards in over 33 countries and four sold out world tours.
Il Divo have released six albums to date: Il Divo (2004), Ancora (2005), Siempre (2006), The Promise (2008), Wicked Game (2011) and A Musical Affair (2013).
Still classed as the original and the best classical cross over group of all time Il Divo will be performing new tracks for their fans in 2016 as well as their much loved greatest hits.
