Andrea Bocelli kicked off his 2013 U.S. Tour “Passione” with a show-stopping concert on February 8 in Sunrise, FL. The world renowned tenor wowed his audience of more than 12,000 people with over 2 ½ hours of pop and operatic performance and drew standing ovations during several encores. Bocelli performed the well-known “Quizás, Quizás, Quizás” and “New York, New York” among many.
Of course, the entire event would not have been complete without the incredible support of our own team from Creative Show Services, led by executive producer John Orchard and technical director Keith Lasher.
For the past 12 years, AVI-SPL has supplied all video and lighting equipment for Bocelli’s U.S. tours. This tour required four 53` trucks to transport the gear. This year, the staging features a 60×40` LED screen that projects live segments from the concert combined with imagery provided by the Bocelli creative group. A team of 15 people from AVI-SPL, (5 lighting and 10 video operators), together with 30 local stage hands, work each show.
While Bocelli is touring around the world, AVI-SPL is preparing for his next U.S. appearance on June 5th in Denver, CO, followed by Los Angeles, CA; Anaheim, CA; Newark, NJ and Albany NY.
In December, Bocelli will be back for his Christmas tour, starting on December 7th in Las Vegas, NV. He will also visit Phoenix, AZ; Brooklyn, NY; Washington, DC; Tampa, FL and Atlanta, GA
As usual, CS2 and AVI-SPL will be there to ensure that Bocelli’s admirers will receive an amazing and unforgettable experience. For more information, visit www.andreabocelli.com or www.creativeshowservices.com.
