Since coming together in 2004, Il Divo – David Miller, Carlos MarÃn, Urs Buhler & SÃ©bastien Izambard – have sold out two world tours, performing to over 1.5million fans in thirty countries.
The 2009 tour, An Evening with Il Divo will kick off February 21st in Manchester with a schedule including eight performances in the UK, followed by concerts in Ireland, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy, Paris, Switzerland, Serbia and Slovenia. The tour will then head to North America and cross six continents before closing the year in Australia, Japan and South East Asia,
The new show will be staged and choreographed by William Baker (Kylie, Jamiroquai) on a state of the art set, which also offers fans the chance to sit within the staging for a unique concert experience.
