Australia is such a special place for me – I’ve had some of the best experiences of my life here, filming 3000 Years of Longing with George Miller in 2020 and then touring with my father last year. I can’t wait to be back.” – Matteo Bocelli.

Audiences can expect a captivating blend of classical and contemporary repertoire delivered with Matteo’s signature style, in some of Australia’s most intimate venues.  Don’t miss this rare opportunity to witness Matteo Bocelli’s extraordinary talent live in concert.
