Italian Maestro Andrea Bocelli Headlines BST Hyde Park

Andrea Bocelli, one of the finest classical artists of this generation, will headline the largest outdoor classical concert of the century at BST Hyde Park 2024 on Friday 5th July. 

Performing with The Royal Philarmonic Orchestra, Andrea Bocelli tops the bill of world-class stars and emerging artists from the classical music world. Joining Bocelli will be a line-up of special guests including Seal, Hans Zimmer and Zucchero, and Welsh Opera star Katherine Jenkins will also make an appearance. Andrea Bocelli’s son Matteo will also be performing, and Myleene Klass will host the concert.

Recognized around the world as an icon of the greatest Italian vocal tradition, Andrea Bocelli has sold over 90 million records. He perfected his singing skills under the guidance of his mentor, Franco Corelli, and initially became widely famous for winning the Sanremo Music Festival in 1994. At the same time, he started his dazzling classical career, performing masterpieces from the opera repertoire on stage – conducted by Lorin Maazel, Seiji Ozawa and Zubin Mehta. 

The record-breaking artist, who sees his concerts attended by huge crowds, has broken every record in the industry. His countless acknowledgments include a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which he was honored with in 2010. Throughout his career, Andrea Bocelli has received 6 Grammy Award nominations and 6 Latin Grammy Awardnominations. 

He has performed for four Presidents of the United States of America, three Popes, the British Royal Family, many Prime Ministers and also at the ceremonies of the Olympic Games, the Universal Expo in Shanghai in 2010, at the Universal Expo in Milan in 2015 (together with the Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala) and at the inauguration of Expo Dubai on September 30, 2021, where he achieved yet another personal success that was broadcast worldwide.
