Il Divo Commence Australian Tour In 2 Weeks! With Special Performance By Patrizio Buanne

TEG Dainty look forward to welcoming IL DIVO, the world’s leading classical crossover group, making their long-awaited return to Australian stages, performing shows in 4 cities from Octoebr 31. These shows will mark the first performances by IL DIVO in this country since the tragic passing of Carlos Marín in 2021. After deciding ‘the show must go on’ in tribute to Marín, the remaining members of IL DIVO – Swiss tenor Urs Bühler, French pop artist Sébastien Izambard and American tenor David Miller – have continued touring and in August welcomed Mexican-American baritone Steven LaBrie, as the newest member of the group.

As an extra special treat for Australian audiences, IL DIVO have also invited world-renowned Neapolitan crooner, PATRIZIO BUANNE, to join the tour. Patrizio also releases his first studio album in three years, ‘The Neapolitan’ on 20 October 2023 on Decca Australia. Since becoming a father a few years ago, Patrizio is delighted to release his new album as it reflects his most personal recording offering, paying tribute to his Neapolitan heritage. Fatherhood has led Patrizio to reflect about his cultural homeland, Naples, and what it means to consider himself Neapolitan.

First discovered and mentored by Simon Cowell in 2003, IL DIVO pioneered a unique classical- crossover blend of opera and pop music, which must be experienced live to be truly appreciated. Since then, IL DIVO have regularly blown away capacity crowds at arenas and stadiums all over the globe, and have also performed for former US presidents George Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama as well as Queen Elizabeth II.

The multinational quartet has also collaborated with some of the greatest singing voices of all time – including global superstars Celine Dion, Toni Braxton and Michael Ball – which is a further testament to IL DIVO’s undeniable vocal virtuosity and exemplary reputation amongst their peers. The popular group’s enduring appeal has also, undoubtedly, made opera more accessible to mainstream audiences on a global scale.


A regular visitor to our shores, PATRIZIO BUANNE has sold one-and-a-half million records in this country alone (and more than 10 million worldwide) and also achieved the near-impossible with a triple- Platinum certification in Australia. So much more than his well-publicised movie-star good looks and charisma, the Neapolitan crooner’s engaging stage presence and powerful voice – which effortlessly conveys authentic emotion – make him a live act not to be missed.

During these eagerly anticipated Australian shows, IL DIVO fans can expect to hear highlights from this top-tier multinational vocal group’s repertoire – many of which have rarely been performed live – alongside more well-known hits including ‘Regresa a Mi’ (Unbreak My Heart), the official song of the 2006 FIFA World Cup (‘The Time Of Our Lives’), ‘I Believe In You’ (Je crois en toi) and ‘Hola’ (their version of Adele’s smash hit ‘Hello’).

Singing songs in English, Italian, Spanish, French and Latin, IL DIVO will draw from their vast catalogue of songs that range from Schubert to showtunes, ABBA to Aznavour, Leonard Bernstein to Leonard Cohen and everything in between (including holiday songs and hymns).
