Il Divo, the record-breaking classical crossover group who have sold more than 26 million albums worldwide, will bring Il Divo – A Musical Affair: The Greatest Songs Of Broadway Live to arenas across the UK, visiting Capital FM Arena Nottingham on October 24.

The world tour, which begins in February 2014 in Japan and travels across the globe including North America and Europe till it reaches the UK leg in October, supports the group’s sixth studio album A Musical Affair.

It’s their first compilation of songs inspired by Broadway shows such as Phantom of the Opera, Carousel and West Side Story and features stellar duet partners Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth, Nicole Scherzinger, Heather Headley and Michael Ball.

The limited engagement of live concerts in NYC marked the first time the four members sang together on the Broadway stage. The show intertwines the most famous songs from Broadway musicals with the individual theatrical experiences of Carlos, David, Urs and Sébastien. Tony and Grammy Award Winner Heather Headley was a featured guest for the entire run.

The quartet members are no strangers to musical theatre; Carlos was cast as Marius in Les Misérables when the show first premiered in Spain in 1993, while David played Rodolfo in Broadway’s La Bohème in 2003, which subsequently garnered seven Tony nominations.

Tickets are priced between £39.20 and £140 (prices includes administration fee). Call 0843 373 3000.
