The Creative Show Services Team Welcomes Andrea Bocelli to Tampa

Our Creative Show Services team is excited to announce that Andrea Bocelli is returning to Tampa on December 14th for his Christmas tour. The world renowned tenor will be joined by conductor Eugene Kohn, soprano Svetla Vassileva and guest vocalist Heather Headley.

As we informed you earlier this year, Bocelli kicked off his 2013 U.S. Tour “Passione” with a show-stopping concert on February 8th in Sunrise, FL. The tenor sang to a crowd of more than 12,000, delivering a pop and operatic performance that drew standing ovations during several encores. Bocelli performed the well-known “Quizás, Quizás, Quizás” and “New York, New York” among many other favorites.

The Christmas tour, which is part of the “Passione” tour, started on December 7th in Las Vegas and the last stop will be in Atlanta, GA on December 15th. Of course, the entire event would not be 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 year the staging features a 60`x40` 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.

As usual, the CS2 team will be there to ensure that Bocelli’s admirers will receive an amazing and unforgettable experience. For more information about the tour, go to For additional information on our services, please visit
