Following a successful week of concerts at New York’s Marquis Theater, Il Divo—the record-breaking classical crossover group that has sold more than 26 million albums worldwide—will bring IL DIVO - A MUSICAL AFFAIR: THE GREATEST SONGS OF BROADWAY LIVE to theaters across the U.S. and Canada. The Live Nation-promoted engagement 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. “It has been so inspiring to work with such legendary songs from the world of Broadway musicals for our new album,” says Urs Buhler from IL DIVO. “We can't wait to now perform them in our own style to our fans around the world.”
Il Divo is the world's first and most successful classical crossover group. The foursome have sold over 26 million albums worldwide, achieved over 50 number one records, received 160 gold and platinum sales awards in over 33 countries and staged four groundbreaking world tours. The international quartet comprises of tenor Urs Buhler of Switzerland, baritone Carlos Marin of Spain, pop artist Sébastien Izambard of France and tenor David Miller from the United States. As Il Divo first came to fruition in 2003, this year’s album and complementary concert series marks a milestone for the four singers as they commemorate the success of a 10-year career together.
