Delta Goodrem to perform with Andrea Bocelli in AUS and NZ

DELTA GOODREM TO PERFORM WITH ANDREA BOCELLI IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND

8 August, 2014:

Australian singer songwriter Delta Goodrem will join the world’s most beloved tenor Andrea Bocelli, on stage as a special guest during Bocelli’s tour of Australia and New Zealand this September.

For the first time in her home country of Australia, and following a number of hugely successful performances in the USA, Singapore and Canada with Bocelli in 2009 & 2010, Goodrem has graciously accepted the legendary tenor’s invitation to perform with him on stage during his concerts in Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth this year.

Maestro Bocelli said “For years I have admired Delta’s work. Delta is such a gifted musician, she has a beautiful, rich and naturally agile voice, and is the perfect choice of artist to join me on stage to sing with me in her home country.”

“I am deeply honoured to be invited to join Maestro Bocelli for his upcoming shows in New Zealand and Australia. Andrea Bocelli is truly one of the most iconic performers of the modern world, his voice is sublime and it is a blessing to be re-joining the Maestro on stage soon for the concerts at home.” Said Delta Goodrem

Led by internationally renowned opera conductor Eugen Kohn, and accompanied by the Australian Philharmonic Orchestra, the legendary tenor will also be accompanied by 60 piece local choirs including The Auckland Choral, The Brisbane Chorale, The Sydney Philharmonia Choir, the Ashton Smith Singers (Melbourne), the Elder Conservatorium Chorale (Adelaide) and the West Australian Symphony Chorale. Cuban Soprano Maria Aleida will also perform alongside Maestro Bocelli for the operatic duets of the evening.

The concerts will each be a two-part performance, featuring a selection of classical opera arias and songs, as well as hits from Andrea Bocelli’s latest album “Passione”- a collection of the world’s most beautiful love songs.

With one of the most recognisable voices in modern music, Andrea Bocelli is a global icon who has forged a career spanning almost 20 years, selling a staggering 80 million records worldwide. Bocelli last toured in Australia in 2008, performing sell-out arena concerts to an audience of over 65,000.
