Bocelli will perform at Abu Dhabi's Etihad Park on 24 November 2022. 

This is not the first time the six-time Grammy Award nominee is performing in the UAE and the Arab region. Bocelli has already performed four concerts in the UAE capital, with his last one being in 2019.

In an official press release, Bocelli revealed that "Abu Dhabi holds a very special place in my heart… I cannot wait to take to the stage at Etihad Park and perform for the people there who appreciate the beauty of classical music. It will be a memorable, momentous occasion for everyone."

Bocelli has also created important footprints in Saudi Arabia. In January, Bocelli performed in the iconic mirrored Maraya venue of AlUla, which was the singer's fourth participation at Winter at Tantora, a cultural festival held in the old town of Saudi's AlUla.

In 2016, Bocelli performed at the launch of a huge cultural centre in Kuwait singing to an audience of 2,000.

The internationally renowned tenor's career spans over four decades during which he sold more than 90 million records.
