IL DIVO - Since coming together in 2004, four of the greatest voices in the world, David Miller, Carlos Marin, Urs Buhler & Sebastien Izambard have spearheaded an entire musical genre by bringing the sound of opera to the world of popular music.

As part of their massive touring plans for 2009, Il Divo launched their Canadian tour and fifth album The Promise with an exclusive performance in Toronto today. Giving fans and media a taste of what's to come, Il Divo's renditions of "Amazing Grace," "Power of Love," "Hallelujah" and "Adagio" left the intimate audience breathless. With over 1.5 million albums sold to date, Canada remains one of Il Divo's most successful markets in the world.

The new show will be staged and choreographed by William Baker (Kylie, Jamiroquai) on a state of the art set, with a tour wardrobe designed by Giorgio Armani, featuring outfits from Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani and Armani Collezioni collections.
