Andrea Bocelli on Valentine’s Day! Imagine sitting side by side with your Amore as the language of love comes to life through the voice of this incredible Italian tenor on Valentine’s day!
Few things have the power to take me back to Italy like the scent of jasmine, the taste of Brunello, and the voice of Andrea Bocelli.
I will never forget the first time I heard “Con te Partiro`” on a bus navigating the road through the Amalfi Coast. The sea sparkled below, the bus threatened to send us plummeting down the cliff, and the words “Paesi che non ho mai veduto e vissuto con te adesso si li vivro`” filled my ears. It was magic.
At the time, I had no idea the power in those words, so foreign to me: “Countries that I have never seen and lived, now with you I will live them”.
Unaware of how truly fitting this song would become to my future marriage, I turned to my friends and told them I would walk down the aisle to that song. They told me I should probably find a groom first!
Years later, on one of the first dates with my husband he told me he had heard a song in Italy that I had to hear. I recognized it immediately. And in June of 2011, I did indeed walk down the aisle to that song.
People all around the world have their own stories about why exactly they love Andrea Bocelli’s music. Be it the opera arias, traditional folk songs, or the original love songs so hauntingly beautiful, his is a special voice, even better in person.
We had the pleasure several years ago to see Andrea Bocelli in concert on Valentine’s Day in Miami, where he performed the special concert several years in a row.
When we found out we were moving to Tampa, I immediately checked to see if we could drive down to see him. To my surprise, his Valentine’s Day concert this year is in our very own city of Tampa!
For anyone who lives here, or wants to escape the cold somewhere up North, and is looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to your Tesoro, seeing him in concert is the next best thing to a trip to Italy.
He will also be performing in Charlotte, NC on February 9th, and Miami on February 11th, before coming here for Valentine’s Day and then back to Europe.
For a very special treat, ask us how to see him in Italy! He does a concert in Tuscany every Summer, and we might even be able to help you sneak a peak at his family’s home and winery!
