Last night was wonderful. Amazing to hear his voice in person.

ANDREA BOCELLI WAS FANTASTIC
BEST DATE NIGHT EVER! Andrea Bocelli did
not disappoint. This was by far one one of
the best shows I have ever seen. He brought
us to tears on a few songs. His voice was
strong, vibrant and touched you deep in
I don't think anything will ever compare. His
guest performers were equally wonderful
and the synergy between them and him was
mesmerizing. Kudos to the OR Festival
Symphony & OR choir, beautiful job.
John Russo from Portland, Oregon
Great show. Seen him 5 times this was he best of all. Great use of powerful graphic images. Great guest
performes. Full orchestra and choir. Just took my breath away.
Em mcintosh from San Diego, California
Seeing bocelli has been on my bucket list for years. My grandson took me to the
An incredible experience to see this blind man standing perfectly still producing this
beautiful sound that filled the arena.
An expensive but priceless experience.

ANDREA BOCELLI IN NYC FOR HE HOLIDAY
To see one of the most talented Tenors in the world
and my favorite of all time! Just amazing. Such a gift.
Will regan from New York, New York
A GREAT SHOW
An incredible talent who brought other extremely talented performers
with him on 12/13
Christine from Miami, Florida
THE BEST SHOW
I saw him at the American Airlines Arena. He had a 70 piece Orchestra & a Choir of 60
singers. His voice is so powerful. To hear him in person is surreal. He sang with Nadine
Sierra. She was phenomenal. Kristin Chenowith also performed. She was born to
perform. He had a solo Violinist & dancers that also performed. It was an “experience.” I
plan on seeing him again because it was so good.
Sandy Jennings n from Cleveland, Ohio
ANDREA IN CLEVELAND
I have been a huge fan since Andrea first
record. And a huge fan ever since. I can now
take him off my “bucket list”..what a strong,
crisp voice and such a beautiful man to share
his Haiti chairty. The other performers were
On a negative note; we paid over $700 for 2
tickets, and the orchestra director stood next
to Mr. Bocelli, which blocked our view. And the
other people sitting in the same area.
Rita H. Willis from Richmond, VA.
ANDREA BOCELLI - DEC. 14 - MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
My soul is at peace after last evening’s performance at Madison Square Garden. Bocelli awakens every
emotion, and there is no need to hold back the tears - they WILL come!
Such an experience should have been performed at the Metropolitan Opera House. My ticket was 395:00,
but I would pay it again and again to see him in a lowly stable!
Thank you, Bocelli for making this my best Christmas - EVER! You were gifted with this voice from above, and
you are using it to warm others’ hearts and lives. I will NEVER be the same.
NOTE: I took the train from Richmond, VA. to see, hear and experience ANDREA BOCELLI!!!!
Rita H. Willis (SeñoRita)
Dave from Ypsilanti, MI
What an incredible talent and show. Thank you, Andrea. Thank you, God.
Robin from New York, New York
NEW YORK CITY
Beyond spectacular saw him at the garden last
night his voice was amazing his music selection
incredible and the violinist and dancers were
Me bocelli gave a very moving exceptional
performance - I cannot wait to see him again!
Kathy from Detroit, Michigan
I have seen Frank Sinatra front row and Bruce third row, Luciano Pavarotti and many
others thru the years. This man blew me away. He is truly perfection. The show was
beyond words. If you have a chance to see this amazing talent you must go.
E. Smyth from Charlotte, North Carolina
I saw Andre Bocelli in Chicago in 2013. Andrea Bocelli was
amazing. Tonight in Charlotte It seemed like the Andre
Bocelli variety hour. Would have loved to have seen and
heard a lot more of Andre Bocelli.
Winelle Orr from Atlanta, Georgia. We are from Mississippi.
ANDREA BOCELLI IN DULUTH, GA
Saw Bocelli in person for the first time last night. His concert was absolutely amazing.
I've never heard a voice like his. The concert was perfect in every way. The tickets were
a birthday gift to my husband. ( 80 years old ). He loved it, too. He said seeing
Bocelli was on his bucket list.
Judith Johnson from Boston, Massachusetts
SIMPLY THE BEST
Quite the experience to be in the presents of such amazing talent. Go. You walk away with
a full heart. Great Show,musician & dancers. Wonderful...
K.R.Mills from Stanton, California
ANDREA BOCELLI @ THE HONDA CENTER
There are no words... only the sound of Bocelli. If
you are fortunate to experience him, take it and
relish. Andrea Bocelli does not disappoint!
We sat at the very, very top in the Honda Center
and enjoyed every last moment of the night. For
Bocelli, there is no bad seat in the house.
Al from Nova Scotia Canada
WHAT AN AMAZING EVENING
To be present and hear this amazing
entertainers and all the accompanying
entertainers perform was a once in a lifetime
experience. Congratulations to the orchestra
as well they were great
Classy performance all night Thanks Collins
Mark from Boston, Massachusetts
Just perfect. Sound and content. Bocelli got better and better as nite
wore on. Fantastic finish stay till the end or else.
Tony Randazzo from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
IT'S BEEN TWENTY YEARS BUT WORTH THE WAIT
Hearing his voice is a gift from God. Even if his music is not your favorite kind, you can't
help but be moved by the power of his voice. The audience couldn't hold back their
admiration and approval of his performance. When he sang Nessum Dorma, the
response from the audience was unbelievable and continued until the ending. The
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Mendelssohn Choir were wonderful
compliments to his performance. The female vocalists and dancers were excellent
additions to the concert. Celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary made this a night
to remember. Those who were hearing Bocelli for the first time had to be in awe.
Anonymous from New York, New York
How to explain what it feels like to be present at an example of respect and admiration and yess love. Choice of
songs perfect, just what the audience needed to get up the next day with a reason to believe.
Gary Brown from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
ANDREA BOCELLI -PITTSBURGH CONCERT
There is simply no other voice on planet earth as that of Andrea
Bocelli. My wife and I were moved to tears by his spellbinding vocals
that leaves your soul aglow. The sound system and orchestra were
magnificent and the choice of duet arrangements with other artists
were superb. My bucket list is one item less after hearing this
magnificent man capture my heart for an incredible evening of bliss.
from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
VOCAL GRACE FROM A BEAUTIFUL SOUL
Andrea Bocelli filled PPG Paints Arena on December 8, 2018 with his wonderful voice. His unassuming manner, quiet grace and vocal beauty touched everyone present throughout the evening.
Operatic and Pop duets with lovely female singers and a violin soloist, along with interpretive ballet dancers, made for an interesting and evenly paced program. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra provided its world-class support.
Bocelli has the gift of singing lyrics that are mostly not in English and holding people's rapt attention the whole time, nonetheless. He engulfs the audience in an atmosphere of sweetness and grace by merely standing humbly on stage and sharing his magnificent voice!
18 thousand people could sit quietly and listen intensely without having their hearing assaulted by a billion decibels and not seeing anyone flying through the air or running around the stage or dancing while lip-syncing! Who knew?
People left with full hearts and happy ears from the gift of one man's voice!
Tracy from Los Angeles, California
He seemed tired. His performance for much of the
evening was so muted I thought there was something
wrong with the sound system. Song selection
disappointed too. He could have included some of his
more popular songs but didn’t. Finally came alive
towards the end of the concert when had some
competition from his amazing guest Heather Headley
who brought the house down with her performance
Cindy Ransom from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Last night I got to see Andrea Bocelli for the first time and his show was phenomenal.
It was a soul piercing experience and just what my heart needed. The Hallelujah
chorus has great family meaning and the icing on the cake. The PSO was perfect along
with the choir and dancers. Dua Lipa knocked it out of the park. They are a perfect
duo and should sing together more. Thank you Andrea and team for a perfect night!!
Paul Ruchtie from Canfield Ohio
ANDREA WAS MAGICAL
First time hearing him live and it was more
than I ever could imagine. Words can’t
describe it. You must go see him. His voice is
truly a gift from God! Imagine what heaven will
sound like. I just got and heard a glimpse.
Linda from Boston, Massachusetts

INTRODUCED HIS SON MATEO AND DID THEIR NUMBER FROM HIS CD

Paulette & Rebekah Martello from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
ANDREA BOCELLI'S BEAUTIFUL VOICE
Attended Andrea Bocelli's concert this evening at the PPG Paint Center in Pittsburgh,
PA. My daughter's Christmas gift to me. And what a wonderful gift it was. Andrea
and his pitch perfect voice was excellent. The Pittsburgh Symphony and choir were
fantastic, along with the guest appearances and dancers. Andrea left us all in
attendance asking for more - I counted four encores. Andrea has a Heavenly gift
and just wanted to say "Thank You, Andrea, for sharing that gift with us tonight in
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. What else can I say but "You are deeply loved here in the
"Burgh" Andrea. And thank you for the tribute song to all who lost their lives at the
Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill, PA. Merry Christmas to you and yours,
Russ from Louisville
BUCKET LIST BABY!!!
He was amazing. I could elaborate...but he was simply amazing!!!
However, what wasn't amazing was the $7.00 bottles of water...
Marshall McCachran from Cincinnati, Ohio
BEST BY FAR!
On October 19, 2018, Andrea Bocelli, his guest artists, the Cincinnati Symphony
Orchestra and 60 members of the May Festival Chorus gave us an unforgettable
evening of musical perfection, evoking an incredible range of emotions. From opera to
pop to classical, his current U.S. tour is a must-see for all who appreciate the best in
artistic grace and beauty. BRAVO!
Dotti from Cedarburg WI
ANDREA BOCELLI PHOENIX
This was my first time seeing Andrea Bocelli.
I was moved to tears throughout. He topped
every concert I have been to. I don't kno we
how he does so many concerts back to back.
Phoenix was his 4 concert in a row on his US
tour. I thought he would be tired but his
vocals got more powerful as the night went
on ending with Nessum Dorma. You must
go at least once in your lifetime.
M. Steres from New York, New York
ANDREA BOCELLI - 12/112/18 MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
Amazing concert, Andrea Bocelli did not disappoint, nor did any of his
guests. Nadine Sierra was a perfect choice to sing with Mr. Bocelli. New
York Philharmonic, the New York Choral Society, Caroline Campbell and
Nicole Scherzinger were perfect. The only down part of the concert were a
few of the people in the seats who did not understand that no one wants to
hear them sing during the concert and the other group who had no idea
how to dress for the concert. One person next to me had a large coat, a
hand bag and a shopping bag that was falling into my lap throughout the
Victoria Murphy from Boston Mass. (Snowville NH)
ANDREA BOCELLI BEYOND BELIEF
Oh what a night !
The thrill of excitement became a calm of
contentment that I still hold 3 days later.
My husband & I have seen all the rockers and
at age 70, this concert will be one of my
favorite, truly a spectacular show with the
Tenor making my dreams come true.
Jean Goudie from Calgary, Alberta
ANDREA BOCELLI LAS VEGAS MGM GRAND ARENA
We saw Andrea Bocelli at this venue 4 years ago and absolutely loved it.
This show was very different but every bit as wonderful. His beautiful voice will bring
you to tears. His guest artists were spectacular and powerful and the duets with
Andrea were perfect. There were 3 or 4 encores so if you left early you really missed
a great part of the show.
Would highly recommend this show and will see it again when he returns to Las
My only complaint would be the people who arrived late, some up to 40 minutes.
Very disruptive and disrespectful to the artists as well as the fellow audience
members. I get that things happen, but there were so many late comers and some
up to 40 minutes into the performance.
We made reservations for dinner at MGM several weeks prior to arrival, and highly
recommend doing that, as many folks were unable to get in.
Jay Lewis from Pittsburgh, PA
PITTSBURGH, DECEMBER 8, 2018
Bocelli appeared with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Mendelssohn Choir and several singers and dancers. The current show is a lavish production complete with video and lighting effects. The show will not disappoint. At 60, Bocelli's voice is better than ever. When the show hits MSG it should be even bigger due to the wonderful local talent available in New York.
Bonnie C. from Phoenix, Arizona
ANDREA BOCELLI CONCERT IN PHOENIX
Very, very wonderful concert--his voice gave you chills and brought you to tears. I am so glad I went and will go again. His guest singers and the dancers were like whip cream on a sundae, terrific. The choir and orchestra were great. On a rating basis of 5 stars, it was a 6 stars performance.
Katherine Schwartz from Cincinnati, Ohio
MOST FANTASTIC CONCERT OF MY LIFE!
First part wonderful, 2nd part Mind Blowing! CSO and May Festival Chorus were perfect. The artists
that Bocelli brought with him, including his son, were marvelous.
Judi from New York, New York
ANDREA BOCELLI CONCERT AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
My daughter purchased a ticket for me for Christmas. It was a
magnificent show a concert of all concerts for me. He just amazed me
with his talent and encore after encore. It was a very special evening
one I always will cherish!
Cecilia from Boston, Massachusetts
ANDREA BOCELLI AT TD GARDEN BOSTON
Andrea Bocelli is a brilliant artist. Last night did not disappoint. His
voice is amazing and he is extremely generous with his performances
by singing for almost 3 hours.
Janice from Lowell, Massachusetts
The best Christmas present! Mr. Bocelli has a voice that is loved by all!
This concert was more than I expected, it was class, talent, elegance!
Thank you Mr. Bocelli
Nicole from Phoenix, Arizona
We took our 92 year old mother to hear her (and
ours) favorite performer!! What an amazing night!
Bocelli’s music comes from his heart and soul and
connects with his audience on a deep level. His music
is so expansive it demands further expression and his
performance included choir, orchestra, dancing,
gorgeous visuals and amazing vocal artists. It was all
that we had hoped for and more. What a wonderful
gift he brings to the world during these troubled
Susie Banfield from Portland, Oregon
ANDREA BOCELLI CONCERT
The concert for Andrea Bocelli was the best I have ever
seen and I've seen a lot of concerts. His voice is one of a
kind and no one else can sing like him. I thought the night
was magic and hope that he comes back to Portland again.
from Boston, Massachusetts
ANDREA BOCELLI DOES NOT DISAPPOINT
The concert was everything I expected and more. This is the third time I have attended
an Andrea Bocelli concert and this was the most colorful and diverse. Along with the
wonderful sound of Andrea, the orchestra, ballet dancers, chorus, and guest stars were
amazing. Seeing Mateo Borcelli with his father was the icing on the cake.
Ronald Hitchcock from Dallas, Texas
Unbelievable experience to attend this concert. Andrea Bocelli was so
good that the performance is beyond my words! I have always
marveled at his ability to sing those long high notes without facial
show of exertion. Thank you Mr Bocellli for a most exciting evening,!!
Unfortunately the show was somewhat tainted because the wonderful
background presentation listed several performances that did not
happen this night. I am also a lover of Josh Groben’s talent and when
list to sing with Mr. Bocelli I was thrilled! But it did not happen!
I sure would like a response.
Jerry Peter from Cincinnati, Ohio
BOCELLI IN QUEEN CITY,,,
Andrea Bocelli’s performance was splendid and magical. His support artists were
fabulous and the Symphony was perfect. The members of the Cincinnati May Festival
Chorus supported the performance with perfect pitch professionalism. It was my bride’s
birthday present and a memorable one. Andrea sings with incredible ease. He was in
control every minute. You could barely see him take a breath. This was a lifetime event.
We will always remember it.
Rose from New York, New York
CRYSTAL CLEAR MUSIC
Carol from Boston, Massachusetts
ANDREA BOCELLI TD GARDEN BOSTON
4th time I've seen him. He was fantastic.
Show never disappointed. The Opera
segment and ending with Nesum Dorma.
Which had people humming as they left.
Opera is Andrea's first love. Some people
especially the couples behind us just didn't
get it. They were talking loud and laughing
That was the only thing I found wrong. I love
Andrea Bocelli and I have since I heard him
. All they did was talk and laugh quite a
James DePalma from Rochester NY
The experience last night in the Garden is almost impossible to describe... but I will
This man is an icon for sure, While there have been singers in the past and maybe
present with as powerful a voice, Bocelli delivers these beautiful ballads with a
grace, and charm that is absolutely unmatched anywhere in the world IMO.
The perfection of his delivery makes his live performance sound like you are
listening to a studio generated performance; he hits every note with such precision,
and at the end of certain notes, he seems to have 1 more gear for added beauty.
In addition to his brilliance, the combination of the venue, the guest singers, the
Haiti children's choir, his son singing with him, the jumbo screen with the video
surrounding you with so much to absorb.
The evening was emotional, uplifting, spectacular, and moving. My wife and I will
never forget this evening of pageantry & music... absolutely amazing

First time we saw him in concert

Wonderful surprise that placido Domingo was in audience and conducted on stage
And his son was there to sing too
Great night in big apple
Kathy Felt from Boston, Massachusetts
ANDREA BOCELLI TD GARDEN
A dream come true to see Andrea Bocelli
perform live in concert. Though he did not
disappoint, I would’ve preferred hearing more
of his popular music. He sang a lot of opera
(his first love I believe), which was beautiful,
but I wished he did more off his new CD. The
entire show was very well done. We had terrific
seats down on the floor, 8 rows back from the
stage & well worth the money we paid..
Denise Greco from New York, New York
What an amazing performance, you could hear a pin drop! Hi voice transcends all ages, powerful and pitch perfect yet gentle and touching. His Duet with Matteo was the highlight! The smiles and body language between father and son was beyond touching. This was a long planned girls night out and we will definitely see him again! Next time I will bring my husband and daughter.Bar stool seats are the bomb!
Andrea from New York, New York
Excellent music and voice but one of the worst
shows I’ve ever seen. I guess this is why you
don’t see opera at Madison square garden
where your average fan thinks it’s ok to talk the
entire time, eat pizza boxes and get wasted on
beer. Very low class event , poor acoustics
because of an audience filled with fans that
belonged more at a sporting event and an
event staff (security and beverages that
thought it was ok to talk, laugh, and roll giant
carts during the entire performance) . Hard to
concentrate on such an angelic sound with all
the noise , cell phone dings and rings ( no you
are not allowed cell phone usage) . Left
towards the end , I prefer to listen in a different
medium. This quite possibly was the worst
produced show I have ever seen. Poor Andrea ,
such talent wasted under the direction of an
agent and management company that clearly
have decided to make music for the
equivalent of Kmart shoppers on Black Friday.
Fernando from Dallas, Texas
WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT
Andrea seemed annoyed and tired. Song selection was very disappointing. He has so many great songs. We were hoping to hear a few, but to our disappointment he sang only 2 we recognized. However, his voice was phenomenal. Conductor was covering him most of the time and we couldn't see him properly from the side of the auditorium. We left mid-way in to the second half.
Linda Cera from Long Island, New York
If you have been to other Bocelli concerts you have something to compare last
nights performance to. He of course is always true to himself and never deviates
what he does so I knew that would be the case last night. No problem there. But
the production was a distraction rather than an enhancement. Blinding lights
pointed directly at the audience were frequent and an annoyance. The guest
performers were not very exciting. No Grobin, no Sherin showed up. The first
standing ovation was given to a children's choir from Haiti. The second was when
we heard our first popular song from Bocelli and that came towards the end of the
show. That should tell you something. The first half of the show was opera. For
opera lovers it was great I am sure, but for Bocelli lovers who want to hear the
songs they know all the words to...not so much. His new song was a highlight. But
all and all very disappointing for me.
Johan from Orlando, Florida
AMAZING AND TOUCHING!
Andrea started with classic opera, and brought in a remarkable soprano and violoniste in the first half, then he upped it to contemporary songs and sang from his new Si album. And to top it all off he brought his son Matteo onto the stage. Plus another amazing female artist who duetted with him. It was mesmerizing, touching and the best concert I've ever seen. This was my third Bocelli concert.
Sahara Forman from Orlando, Florida
I was super excited about the Orlando concert honestly, we were hoping to hear his love songs with guitar and piano, (Beasemo Mucho, Kisas or Perfiedia). It was mostly opera songs which I found it boring. We didn't know about the contents of course. The seats we paid $400 each were very uncomfortable in the Amway arena. The cheaper seats were bigger and looked more comfortable. I was able to see only half of the stage. I will still enjoy his songs on YouTube but I was hoping to hear those songs in live performance. Unfortunately it didn't happen.
Harriet Fort from Orlando, Florida
I was expecting a great concert but there are no words to express the incredible performances by Andrea Bocelli, his choir and orchestra, the other amazing singers and dancers and of course the big surprise, his breathtakingly handsome son, Matteo. I have an eclectic taste for music and have been to many concerts but this one has left indelible footprints in my heart. Best ever!!! Not a cheap ticket but worth much more than I paid. A not-to-miss evening of excellence.
Matt Clark from Huntington NY
WHAT I LEARNED AT THE MET
I saw Andrea Bocelli at the Metropolitan Opera House on 2/10/19 and was disappointed. His entire show, including the encores, were arias that most of the audience didn't know. I admit that this is the way the concert was advertised but I assumed that he would do at least one of his popular songs. Most of the people I spoke to were also disappointed and it is telling that he didn't get a standing ovation from the whole audience at the end of the concert. If you are thinking of seeing him in the future take the following into account: At the Met there are no microphones and while he has a great voice, he really needs some amplification. The opera singers on the program came across much better for the guy in the $200 balcony seats. No large screen TVs at the Met so you couldn't see him too well. Lastly, no microphone means no speaking - he never said a word to the audience during the concert. Next time I'll go to a stadium when he's doing his greatest hits.
Marcus from Great Barrington Massachusetts
SHMALTZ KITSCH AND VIRTUOSITY
Attennded the Bocelli Valentines concert in Miami last night and was transported to the highest highs and lowest lows. How can you surround a virtuosic performer with the most embarrassing and debasing choice of film montage, amateur dance performances and lighting design appropriate for a sporting event? Andrea Bocelli at 60 still sings beautifully in tune with wonderfully sustained tones and a gravitas of a Pavorati or Domingo, yet he has surrounded himself with an organization that only wishes to present him to a sports level audience only hungry for his greatest hits and supreme kitsch. Andrea please preserve your hard earned dignity and lose whoever conceived your abysmal set design and overall tour concept. For my 94 year old father it was a concert of a lifetime, please make it worthy of your life’s work and not a caricature of a some vaudevillian off off Broadway charade.
Debbie from New York, New York
2/17/19...the met...nyc.... i’ve waited years to see Bocelli....Ended up heartbroken. The met is a place for opera and I get that… But there needed to be amplification to hear his voice…It was hard enough to hear him when he was singing solo… But if the orchestra even tried to play a hair louder he was totally lost… to add to it he did not sing one song that anyone was familiar with… And I think that would’ve been OK if the focus had been more on him instead of the other performers…For anyone who loves his music I suggest downloading his music or buying a CD… You’ll be way happier.
from Vancouver, British Columbia
Brilliant performance and especially when he sang with his sonMatteo. They always leave Time to say ?Goodbye until the very end so for the person that commented they left well before that you missed some of the best songs.
Loved the backdrops and the interaction with the violinist and dancers. This was the second concert I have seen with Bocelli in Vancouver and this was the best. This time he spoke to the audience about his sons which everyone loved
Suzanne Overton from Vancouver, British Columbia
WHY THESE NEGATIVE REVIEWS?
Well Andrea Bocelli wasn't mine and my husband's first choice of concert, we took my 89 year old mom-in-law as he is one of her favorite singers and it was on her bucket list to do.. and wow! We LOVED it!! More used to rock concerts (though we are in our 50's now) No we didn't necessarily know all of the songs - but isn't that entertainment is all about? An absolutely awesome concert, and though we were a little lost in the first half, we very much appreciated the culture of Italian Opera! Just couldn't get enough at the end of the show. I say pphtptphltltltlt!! to all the negative reviews here, Andrea looked tired?? give me a break, it was an amazing performance!! And the extra guests just enhanced the experience!! Bravo Matteo!
Mary Cazzetta from Toronto, Canada
We came all the way from Toronto to see Andrea it was a spectacular show one that I will remember, want to encourage Andrea to have a concert in Toronto.
Shauna Chuchian from Los Angeles, California
I have been a big fan of Andrea since I first heard his beautiful voice. I felt so fortunate to have tickets to see him at the Bowl. His performance was "perfecto". It was wonderful to see him perform with his adorable son Matteo. I think were going to see some amazing work by this young man. Beautiful voice. You can see Andrea's love and pride in his son as they sing together. They have a special bond wonderful to watch. Warms the heart.
I would like to add it was a really fantastic crowd at the bowl, There were a lot of children who brought their parents to the event. I read a review from a man who mentioned his grandson brought him to the event. My sister blessed me with the evening as she knew It would bring me joy. Wonderful! Warms the heart.
All the best to Andrea and Matteo Bocelli and all those who planned this wonderful Hollywood Bowl event. Thank you! Thank you!!
Michael Patmas MD from Los Angeles, California
POSSIBLY THE GREATEST SHOW I HAVE EVER SEEN.
From operatic standards to contemporary songs, this show was incredible.
Pam from Hollywood Bowl California
PHENOMENAL ANDRE BOCELLI
Outstanding! One of my bucket list concerts. Big topper - Jamie Fox showed up and sang with him.
Still a fan despite the concert from Los Angeles, California
TOO MUCH OPERA. NO SI
I was looking forward to this concert but came away disappointed. The ENTIRE first half was opera. Not what I came to hear (I heard this from many people). He only sang 1 song from his new album (I love this album.) . There were also far too many solo performances by other artists (who weren't even introduced). I thought Amapola, a beautiful love song, was overproduced and lost its charm. And much as I like Con Te Partiro and Nessum Dorma, they were predictable as encores and again, overdone.
Eric Lauderdale from Ojai, California
BOCELLI AND FRIENDS SING SINATRA AND PAVAROTTI...
My first time seeing Andrea Bocelli live, my partners 5th. While there is no doubt of his talents, we both agreed he seemed tired and a little lack luster. The show itself felt odd with the many stage exits and returns with guests. We felt like he was there more to expose other performers than his music.
A duet with Jami Fox?? Seriously??
I prefer his more contemporary pieces, and there were a couple, but it was mostly hard core italian opera. Not that thats bad, just not what we were expecting or hoping for.
By far my favorite part was his duet with his son. The power of their harmonies was the only moment that truly showcased their soul shaking potential.
Judy Matthews from Los Angeles, California
ONE OF THE BEST CONCERTS I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED! IT WAS MAGICAL! PERFECT!
Over the years, I have seen Bocelli twice, this last concert at the Bowl on June 18th was even more extraordinary! He does not disappoint with his divine voice. He arrived on the stage immediately, no others opening for him. His guest performers were not only so very talented, but gorgeous! And his son Matteo, dashing, elegant and blessed with a fine voice very similar to his father's. I loved watching the video on the Andrea Bocelli Foundation in Haiti.
It was truly one of the best produced concerts with Andrea leading the performers, all of the performers top notch talent. I'm sorry I didn't get the names of the soprano and the pop singer. I believe the violinist is Kathleen Campbell, all beautiful and talented. And the dancers! Just a spectacular show! So beautiful that it brought me, my husband and the friends I was with to tears of joy!
Sam from Temescal Valley, California
I saw the June 19th show at the Hollywood Bowl and was completely impressed. I am an old Rock and Roller not in to classical music, although I do have an open mind with regard to most music. Having said that, I was expecting to be somewhat bored by this show (I just saw the Dead & Company show at the Bowl 2 weeks ago, great show!) and instead I was completely blown away by how great this guy can sing! Great show!
Tim from Marina Del Rey, California
I WILL NEVER WATCH ANOTHER PERFORMANCE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL!
+ 1. The concert, discounting the venue, was superb.
2. Mr. Bocelli responded to 3 audience standing ovation requests for encores.
- 1. It seems that the Hollywood Bowl is diligently working at driving guests away. In my case, with success.
2. Between songs very bright lights,
surrounding the arch of the stage, were directed into the eyes of the audience.
3. The sound system was marginal.
4. Not the fault of the venue but many of the audience were rude, constantly talking and singing along with the performance.
William from Denver, Colorado
Everything was overamplified. This is classical music! There is no amplification at the Metropolitan Opera House. Last night it was all loud and full of reverberation. The chorus was tinny. There was NO commentary and we had no idea what he was singing, except for some old standards. There were "guest stars." A classical soprano and a violinist were great, but the second woman singer was a Celine Dion wannabee who I thought was just dreadful. The images were well done, but often didn't match the music. I'm going to stick to the real opera house for awhile.

BOCELLI IN DENVER!!!
Finally...after many years he returned to the Mile High City. It could not have been a more perfect evening! Simply magical.

LISTEN TO ANDREA BOCELLI'S CDS-SAVE YOUR $$
I booked Andrea Bocelli's tickets over 6 months in advance as a surprise to my husband and wasted the few grand spent (no Pavarotti). The crowd will not be greeted or thanked (we should be so honored to watch him); however, Bocelli will speak to the crowd to promote his son. This after singing stereotypical Italian songs for almost the entire show and hardly any of his hits or new songs from his newly released album. Bocelli's voice will never sound the same again, after being chilled by his cold-hearted performance. Clearly, Bocelli's current wife knows how to make him look warm with the videos created that surround his family and that's where it ends. Bocelli never even thanked the orchestra or the conductor who helped him and no intro to the performers. I truly wasted our time and $$. Bocelli is nothing w/out David Foster on the stage, they underestimated the need for this, & Bocelli's team needs to correct him. Treat a crowd the way you would treat family, Bocelli! NEVER AGAIN!

LEFT RIPPED OFF
Bocelli is a great singer and though he did his best to be gracious to the audience by singing generously for the encore he didn't choose his best body of work. He looked gaunt and thin. Besides, the wonderful San Francisco Symphony, and the soprano singer (forgot her name) the other parts of the concert were very out of place and plain cheap. I could care less for the dance numbers at the corner of the stage, the Italian pop singer was promotional at its best, the violinist was thrilling but not befitting to be part of the show. The videos and the lighting system were primitive to the point of being repulsive. The stage designers had no taste or skills. I felt that the organizers had to cater to the widest audience to collect as much money as possible. The blinding dollar signs in the heads of the show organizers blinded the show and its only purpose-to give us Bocelli and Bocelli alone. If senjor Bocelli chooses to come to san Francisco again, let his venue be the Davis Symphony Hall or San Francisco Opera. I think the singer of his statue doesn't need to compare himself with Arianna Grande or Golden Gate Warriors.
