Il Divo and Katherine Jenkins unite for UK tour (2013)
Story by Jack Foley
IL DIVO and Katherine Jenkins, the world’s foremost classical crossover quartet and mezzo soprano, will unite for the very first time to perform together as part of their co-headline UK and European Tour in March and April 2013.
Both artists have captivated millions around the world whilst at the forefront of a classical-crossover revolution in recent years.
With over 30 million album sales between them, both Il Divo and Katherine have experienced stratospheric rises since their recording debuts in 2004. Whilst they have crossed paths at various musical events and TV shows, they have never actually taken to the public stage together.
This tour will see both artists perform with a full orchestra, their own unique classical interpretations of popular songs, while also dueting together for the very first time.
Tickets for the UK tour will go on sale on Friday, November 16 at 9.30am and exclusive VIP Meet & Greet ticket packages will be available at all shows.
The final show of the UK tour at London’s 02 Arena will also host a very special Soundcheck and Q+A event involving both artists, including premium seating and hospitality.
