Andrea Bocelli continually receives rave reviews and standing ovations throughout his sold-out United States tours for the extraordinarily rich tone and timbre of his voice, his soulful musical interpretations and mastery of both classical and pop genres. His 2011 fall tour proved to be one of the most-praised in Bocelli’s career. As the Tampa Bay Times put it, “It's not often you can hear a crowd's collective breath being taken away. But it happened, again and again.” The South Florida Sun Sentinel concurred stating, “Bocelli’s singing moves people…He brought suave phrasing and affecting emotion to an arrangement of Italian songs.” The Hollywood Reporter raved, “It was a triumphant appearance.”
With record sales that exceed 70 million, Bocelli also earned a designation in the Guiness Book of World Records by occupying the first, second and third place on the American classical music charts.
