It’s been announced that the world- acclaimed singing quartet, “Il Divo” will perform in the grounds of Alnwick Castle on Sunday 15th July 2018 as part of a nine date “Castles and Country” UK tour.
Alnwick Castle has teamed up with one of the UK’s top 10 live music and event promoters Cuffe & Taylor, now part of Live Nation, to bring this huge musical extravaganza to Northumberland.
Il Divo, whose music encompasses classical, opera and pop, have achieved over 30 million album sales worldwide, more than 50 No.1 records, 160 Gold and Platinum sales awards and four ground-breaking world tours.
The band’s sold-out Amor & Pasión dates in 2016 had critics praising their ability to “ignite hearts” (Brighton Argus) with their effortless charm and “magnificent vocals” (Belfast Live).
Hits including “Regresa a mi (Unbreak My Heart)”, “The Time of Our Lives”, “Si voy a perderte (Don't wanna lose you)” and “I Believe in You (Je crois en toi)” are guaranteed to delight audiences.
