Famed tenor Andrea Bocelli coming to Tampa

The Italian tenor with one of the most recognizable voices in music, Andrea Bocelli will perform on Dec. 14 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. His 2013 tour comes in support of Bocelli's recent release Passione which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts, along with a brand new PBS television special Love in Portofino. Passione is a lush collection of Mediterranean love songs featuring duets with global pop stars Jennifer Lopez, Nelly Furtado and the late Edith Piaf. The album reunites Bocelli with 16-time Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster, who produced Bocelli's 2006 release Amore, which sold more than 4.2 million copies.

Accompanied by the Opera Tampa Orchestra and Chorus, Bocelli's concert features music from his platinum-selling catalog, covering both traditional and romantic crossover repertoire. Ticket prices have not been announced yet for the general public, but check the Straz Center Ticket Office at (813) 229-7827 for season tickets or visit www.operatampa.org for specific on-sale information.
