Il Divo will return to Belfast next year, when they bring their ‘Amor & Passion Tour’ to The SSE Arena on May 18.

Carlos, Urs, David and Seb will perform songs off the new album alongside all of their biggest hits.

Tickets for the show go on sale at 9am on Friday, November 6 from all usual outlets.

Il Divo will release ‘Amor & Pasion’ on November 27 on Syco Music.

This is Il Divo’s seventh studio album . The flavours and sultry rhythms of Spain and Cuba, Argentina and Mexico give a nod to the quartet’s beginnings.

The tracks that make up the album are mostly familiar hits – such as Julio Iglesias’ iconic A Las Mujeres Que Yo Ame (To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before) and Gloria Estefan’s resonant Si Voy A Perderte (Don’t Wanna Lose You), along with Himno De La Alegria, an exciting Latin treatment of Beethoven’s Ode To Joy and one of the most classic tangos of all time, Por Una Cabeza which was written in 1935 and was used in both Schindlers List and the Al Pacino film ‘Scent Of A Woman’.

Of the new album and tour Sebastien said; “In the studio, singing every track, I really wanted to dance. Corny as it sounds, I love every one of these songs. We are really excited about taking Amor & Pasión and this incredible music on the road, when we embark on our fifth world tour in 2016. Maybe we will finally get to dance!”

Brought together by Simon Cowell in 2003, Il Divo (Urs Buhler, Sebastien Izambard, Carlos Marin and David Miller), spearheaded an entirely new musical genre with their groundbreaking debut album in 2004.

The multi-national four piece have gone on to sell 30 million albums, 50 Number 1 records, 160 gold and platinum awards in over 33 countries and four sold out world tours.

Il Divo have released six albums including Ancora (2005), Siempre (2006), The Promise (2008) and Wicked Game (2011).
