With a new show designed by Creative Director Brian Burke (Artistic Director of ‘La Reve’ and Celine Dion’s 5 year run of ‘A New Day’ at Caesars Palace, both in Las Vegas), and performed with the Il Divo band and famed orchestras across each city, the 2012 tour promises to incorporate a stunning visual and musical mix of fan favourites as well as premiering songs from their eagerly anticipated new album Wicked Game.
