- In-person event
The international, chart-topping supergroup Il Divo debuted in 2004 with instant success. With songs in four languages, their debut album Il Divo became a Top 4 sensation in 19 countries, hitting #1 in eight. The group went on to be a world leader in their unique pop-opera genre, achieving second-to-none success around the world, performing before personalities such as former US presidents George Bush, Bill Clinton or Barack Obama and the Queen of England. To date, Il Divo has sold over 30 million records throughout its career, achieved 160 gold and platinum records in more than 33 countries, and completed six world tours at the most important venues around the world including the Broadway stage. They have ten studio albums, two live albums, and one compilation album, plus numerous special editions, duets, and collaborations with other artists such as Celine Dion, Tony Braxton, Kristin Chenoweth or Michael Ball among others. The group’s latest album For Once In My Life: A Celebration of Motown, is the group’s robust and joyful song sojourn into the timeless, classics from Motown's legendary vaults.
First discovered and mentored by Simon Cowell in 2003, the original four members of Il Divo are the Swiss tenor Urs Buhler, French tenor Sebastien Izambard, American tenor David Miller and Spanish baritone Carlos Marin.
In late 2021, the group suffered the unexpected, tragic loss of Carlos Marin while on a global concert tour in support of their new album. For the first time in their 18 years, they were faced with deciding whether to carry on. Ultimately, David, Urs, and Sebastien resolved to proceed in honor of their lost brother Carlos. The tour, previously, the ''For Once in My Life Tour” was reimagined as a Greatest Hits Tour so that they could pay tribute each night to the incredible career they shared with Carlos. Special guest vocalist, Mexican American baritone Steven LaBrie was added to the shows.
