FLASH Entertainment is bringing world-famous classical artist ANDREA BOCELLI back to Abu Dhabi’s award-winning leisure and entertainment destination, Yas Island for one night only on April 26. The world’s most beloved tenor and biggest-selling, global, solo, classic artist is set to enthrall fans at Yas Island’s du Arena with a mesmerising performance encompassing both old and new material.

The Tuscan tenor will captivate the audience with a spell-binding concert of two parts featuring material ranging from famous operatic arias to crossover and popular hits from his first album of new material in 14 years, Sì, which in his own words is about heart and soul, positivity and family, melody and magic.

“In this historical period we are going through right now, we too often say no. But yes is the word you say when you have your first kiss, when you agree with somebody, when you want to make someone feel good. Sì is the word you say every time things will end well. For a thousand and one reasons, sì is the expression of a positive, powerful, human word and feeling and emotion” explains BOCELLI.

The message behind BOCELLI’s album resonates strongly with the UAE’s Year of Tolerance, sharing many of the same messages and firmly rooted in family and friendship. This is demonstrated beautifully in the spine-tingling duet between father and son, ‘Fall On Me’, featuring 20-year-old MATTEO BOCELLI.

Having sold 85 million records and performed in some of the greatest concert halls and opera houses, for royalty, Presidents and Popes, BOCELLI describes himself as “a modern, yet old-fashioned tenor” with crossover appeal that has wowed audiences at major international events, including the Olympic Games, and the World Cup, as well as his own sell-out arena shows.

ANDREA BOCELLI’S name and voice reverberate in every corner of the world and have become synonymous with his humble persona and unparalleled singing prowess, he has a Golden Globe, 7 Classic Brit and 7 World Music Awards under his belt, plus a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Drawing millions in with his wide-ranging appeal, Bocelli has collaborated with a host of A-list pop stars including Céline Dion, Tony Bennett, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger, and many more. He also wowed UK football fans with a performance for Claudio Ranieri’s Premier League-winning Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in 2016. Bocelli continues to tour the world with major shows in the US, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, the UK and more recently Saudi Arabia, delighting fans with his new music.

As a young musician, BOCELLI identified his instrument of choice as his voice and went on to excel his career as a tenor after his breakthrough song Con Te Partirò moved listeners globally. Among his many career highlights BOCELLI considers the privilege of singing alongside Tony Bennett, Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo and Céline Dion to be some of his fondest.
