Italian opera star Andrea Bocelli will perform a concert of traditional and modern songs the night after the Gibraltar Calling festival, it has been revealed.
The blind star, 51, will perform with his son Matteo Bocelli whose chart-topping album has sent shockwaves in the classical charts.
“It is a first for Andrea who has never been here before,” organiser Richard Coram told the Olive Press.
“I never doubt it will be anything but a standing ovation at the end of the night.
“Let’s not forget he will be performing with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra who sell out halls constantly.”
The concert will be split between into two halves. The first will see Bocelli sing traditional operas and the second perform his more commercial material like his work with Ed Sheeran.
After the event sold out in just two days the organisers are trying to find ways of fitting more people into the venue at Europa Point.
