Featuring Marin, America’s David Miller, France’s Sebastien Izambard and Switzerland’s Urs Buhler, Il Divo’s tour is produced by Nederlander Concerts.

The 15-city U.S. leg will kick off August 12th at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts and make stops at major cities across the U.S., including the H-E-B Center in Texas on August 21, the Wang Theatre in Boston on September 3, and Arie Crown Theater in Chicago on September 10.

“We are beyond excited to be creating a brand new world tour centered around our new album For Once In My Life. We have spent the last two years creating this album, which pays tribute to some of the greatest music in American pop-culture. And now, to finally be able to present our versions of these great songs to the world, and to get back onstage and sing them for live audiences… well it makes us feel very emotional. We have very much missed performing together and enjoying the connection with our audiences and our fans. We just can’t wait for opening night,” says Miller.

The tour supports their 10th studio album, For Once In My Life: A Celebration of Motown (Decca Gold), set for release on July 16th.

Il Divo’s celebratory collection of Motown classics include their distinctive take on chart-topping songs like “I’ll Be There,” “For Once In My Life,” and “Say You, Say Me.”

An Il Divo artist presale and VIP package sales for select dates begin June 23 at 10:00 am local time, and the general public on-sale starts this Friday, June 25 at 10 am local time.

Tessa Thompson,

Set in the summer of 1957 in New York, Sylvie (Thompson) helps around her father’s record store as she awaits her fiancé’s return from war—until sweet saxophonist Robert (Nnamdi Asomugha) walks in looking for a day job to subsidize his residency at the Blue Morocco lounge. Their chance meeting kindles a deep passion in each of them unlike anything they’ve felt before. Sylvie’s mother immediately disapproves and reminds Sylvie of her engagement, while Robert’s band books their first big gig overseas. As time passes, the sexual revolution begins, and Motown becomes king, the two fall in and out of each other’s arms, but never out of love.

Thompson’s previous credits include Selma, the Creed franchise and Men in Black: International. And she portrays Valkyrie in the superhero films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
