Il Divo Announces ‘Greatest Hits” Tour

Following the tragic passing of Il Divo’s Carlos Marin, the remaining members of the multi-national group – America’s David Miller, France’s Sebastien Izambard and Switzerland’s Urs Buhler – will proceed with their tour in tribute to Marin. The tour, previously, the “For Once in My Life Tour” will go on as a Greatest Hits Tour and include special guest vocalist, Mexican American baritone Steven LaBrie. The tour will be filled with Il Divo’s hits from their vast catalog of songs with an incredible stage production. All tickets from the originally scheduled dates will be honored at the 2022 shows.

Produced by Nederlander Concerts, the U.S. leg will kick off February 2nd at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts and make stops at major cities across the U.S.

“Carlos was a larger than life personality, with a rare combination of an incredibly beautiful, God-given voice and absolutely, immense talent. His passion, playfulness and sense of humor made for such a magical persona, and his laugh would always lift anyone up. He was loved by millions of fans all over the world and we were lucky and honored to be able to perform with him in our midst for so many years. We’ll deeply miss his playfulness, friendship and brilliant voice. In his honor, we’ll be setting up a Carlos Marin Foundation and will be playing tribute to his singing in our future shows. May everyone remember him for his beautiful soul, his amazing talent and may he forever rest in peace” said Miller, Izambard and Buhle in a statement.

The tour supports their 10th studio album, For Once In My Life: A Celebration Of Motown (Decca Gold). Il Divo’s celebratory collection of Motown classics include their distinctive take on chart-topping songs such as “I’ll Be There” (The Jackson 5), “For Once In My Life” (Stevie Wonder), and Say You, Say Me (Lionel Richie). Additionally, the quartet introduce brand new collaborations with superstar group Boyz II Men (“I’ll Make Love To You”), the legendary Smokey Robinson (“The Tracks Of My Tears”and the peerless vocals of singer/songwriter Marvin Gaye (“Aint No Mountain High Enough“). The 10-track album truly showcases the quartet’s incredible vocal talents as they pay tribute to the legendary artists and label that has been a part of the musical fabric of America and the world for over 60 years.  You can order the album here.
