Today world-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli announced the 2022 In Concert For Valentine’s tour to celebrate the forthcoming February holiday. The annual tour dates include five shows scheduled for Atlanta, Charlotte, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Sunrise, FL. Bocelli will perform at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Friday, Feb. 18, 2022.
“I’ve eagerly waited for many long months to be able to say to you: where did we leave off?” said Bocelli. “Today I am pleased to give each of you, my dear friends from my second beloved homeland, a date to put in your diaries. Returning to the stage means much more than just a concert. For me, it means meeting the people and things I love again and to share a common drive that aims to celebrate love and life and the One who gave it to us. In my heart, I am already in the United States, to embrace the many people in the many cities of my fall tour. And to those who will choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day with me, I say: ‘have a little patience, and while you wait to experience it together, please allow me to give you a piece of advice – make every day Valentine’s Day for you!’”
In Concert For Valentine’s will showcase some of Bocelli’s most romantic music including songs from his inspiring new album Believe as well as a selection of arias, his beloved cross-over hits and famed love songs.
Andrea’s US tours are sponsored by global investment firm Stifel. “We’re thrilled to serve as presenting sponsor of Andrea Bocelli’s U.S. tours,” said Ron Kruszewski, Chairman and CEO of Stifel. “Andrea’s live performances are so poignant, and his connection with the audience is so genuine, that he epitomizes the kind of shared experience we have been missing during a year of lockdown.
