To date, classical crossover quartet has sold more than 26 million albums and 2 million concert tickets, and had the only crossover classical album – Ancora - ever to enter the US Billboard Top 200 at No 1.

Their amazing career knows no bounds. Highlights include appearing at the opening and closing ceremony of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, touring as special guests to Barbra Streisand, a 2009 performance at President Obama’s Purple Inauguration Ball, and recently at a special concert for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee at Windsor Castle.
IL DIVO’s appeal is based on a seductive formula of lush, romantic songs, performed passionately in Spanish, English and Italian, over full orchestral arrangements. In the new “Best of” show, IL DIVO will perform selections chosen by their fans all over the world, including ‘Somewhere’, ‘Unbreak My Heart’, ‘Unchained Melody’ and ‘Adagio,’ as well as several new songs such as ‘My Heart Will Go On’ (in Italian), ‘I Will Always Love You’ (in Spanish) and ‘I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You’ (English) from their recent global Greatest Hits album release.
