Andrea Bocelli in Brasília

 

Andrea Bocelli comes to Brazil in 2018 with his new world tour. In Brasilia, the artist performs at Estádio Nacional (National Stadium) on September 20. To celebrate 20 years since his original release, a new special anniversary edition of the album "Romanza" was released in November 2016 worldwide.

The Italian opera tenor is known for his unique blend of opera and pop music. Bocelli's breakthrough came in 1992, when he was asked by Italian pop star Zucchero Fornaciari to record a demo of "Miserere", a song intended for renowned vocalist Luciano Pavarotti.

Though he claimed opera as his first love, Bocelli mixed arias with popular music on his recordings (a genre referred to by the press as "popera") in an effort to expand his audience base.
