World-renowned tenor and football fan Andrea Bocelli will be giving a unique performance before Leicester City’s next match on Saturday 7th May, in celebration of their remarkable Premier League win.
Bocelli will be singing ‘Nessun Dorma’ and ‘Time To Say Goodbye’. It follows a conversation between Bocelli and Italian manager Claudio Ranieri six weeks ago, in which he offered to sing for Leicester if the team landed their first top-flight title.
The Foxes defied the 5,000-1 odds when they were crowned Premier League champions after nearest rivals Tottenham drew 2-2 at Chelsea. Fans are expected to pack Leicester’s King Power Stadium on Saturday to see the champions lift the trophy after their penultimate league game against Everton.
Andrea Bocelli is taking time out from his worldwide tour to perform in Leicester. He will be back in the UK later this year to perform songs from his chart-topping album, Cinema – a beautiful collection of great movie tunes – at venues including The O2 in London.
Bocelli has sold over 80 million albums worldwide, has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, has appeared before three US presidents and three popes.
