One of the most popular singers in the world, Andrea Bocelli, is finally coming to Romania! The beloved Italian tenor, who lost his sight after a football accident, decided to organize two main concerts in the Romanian capital and in the second most important cultural city in the same country, Cluj. The concerts are part of Bocelli’s World Tour 2017, which focuses on the 20-year anniversary of his album ‘Romanza’. It will be launched in a special version following the concerts.

The concert will be divided into two parts. During the first part of his concert, Andrea Bocelli will sing famous opera songs with his own unique voice. The second part of the concert will focus on Bocelli’s most famous songs from his last albums, ‘Cinema’ and ‘Romanza’, the 20-year anniversary version.

The concert goers will see and listen to Andrea Bocelli singing some of the songs that made him famous, songs from famous musicals such as West Side Story, as well as songs from movies such as The Godfather, The Postman, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and many more. Most of the songs are part of the Romanza album, which is Bocelli’s most successful album of all time, having been sold in more copies than any other Italian album ever.

Bocelli’s World Tour 2017 takes place in 18 countries all around the world and in cities such as Miami, Oslo, Atlanta, Copenhagen, Budapest, Helsinki and many more. The concerts in Cluj and Bucharest have been advertised as concerts that bring people together. Andrea Bocelli’s songs, known for their sensibility and the emotional attachment each of them has, have the possibility to bring people together. His unique voice which cannot be matched by anyone in the world, combined with the fact that he is blind truly makes his concerts a blessing and an event that anyone must participate in.

The ‘Romanza’ album is by far Andrea Bocelli’s most popular album, containing famous songs such as Vivo Per Lei, Miserere, Vivere and of course, Romanza, the song that lends its name to the album. It was sold in 20 million copies worldwide, which makes it the most popular Italian album of all time. Together with ‘Romanza’, Andrea Bocelli has released 16 studio albums, generally one every two years. After gaining international attention, he began collaborating with famous names from the international pop scene such as Celine Dion and lately, Ariana Grande.

Andrea Bocelli’s singing style has been described by many opera connoisseurs as unique. Although there are plenty of tenors all around the world, his voice is much warmer and its beauty ‘touches the listener’, as the Puerto Rican soprano Ana Maria Martinez stated once about the man she often collaborates with. The great tenor Luciano Pavarotti, after hearing him sing, supported him and pushed him to record a song with a famous rock star, Zucchero, a song that would eventually catapult him to international fame. After this collaboration, his career began going up and it has not started ever since. He also has his own star on Los Angeles’ Hollywood Boulevard which he received in 2013.

The concerts that will be organized in Bucharest and Cluj aim to give the people an unforgettable experience. They will be able to listen to Andrea Bocelli’s greatest hits, together with new songs from his last two albums, which in itself is a great experience. However, this tour focuses on creating a magical atmosphere which, coupled with Bocelli’s stunning voice, will be worth every penny.

The concerts will also have special props that will enhance the experience of the audience. Bocelli will sing opera songs, as well as popular pop songs loved by millions, mixed with opera elements that made him famous. All in all, this will be a great experience. There are many discounts for the tickets offered by phone companies, particularly Telekom, who is a major sponsor of these concerts. Hurry up and get your own ticket! Losing this great opportunity is not worth anything in the world!

The band debuted in 1994 and its initial name was Kara’s Flowers. Only in 2001 the crew members felt that a name change was much needed. So when the guitar player James Valentine joined the band, they opted for “Maroon 5”. Since them, the members remained the same except the break took by Carmichael. The crew members are Adam Levine (voice and guitar), Jesse Carmichael (keyboards, synthesizers, guitar and backing vocals), Mickey Madden (bass), James Valentine (guitar, backing vocals), Matt Flynn (drums) and PJ Morton (keyboards and backing vocals).

According to Billboard, Maroon 5 occupies the 44th place in the list “Greatest of All Time Hot 100 Artists”. Some of the most famous songs launched by Maroon 5 are “She Will Be Loved”, “This Love”, “Payphone”, “Moves Like Jagger”, “One More Night”, “Misery”, “Won’t Go Home Without You”, “Sunday Morning” and “Animals”. Also, the debut single from the album “V” is called Maps and it set the record for the best start of a band in Top 40 from the last 18 years and it entered Top 100 in over 18 countries.

Maroon 5’s Bucharest concert is one of the most exciting events of 2016. It is a musical event that will gather a large crowd of fans who have been following the band’s evolution and amazing success throughout the years.
