The record-breaking classical crossover group that has sold more than 26 million albums worldwide, Il Divo, is coming back to Denver next week.

They are bringing their tour "A Musical Affair: The Greatest Songs Of Broadway Live" to the Bellco Theatre on April 16.

The tour draws from their new album of the same name. It is their first compilation of songs inspired by Broadway shows such as Phantom of the Opera, Carousel, and West Side Story, and features duet partners Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth, Nicole Scherzinger, Heather Headley and Michael Ball.

"It has been so inspiring to work with such legendary songs from the world of Broadway musicals for our new album," says Urs Buhler from IL DIVO. "We can't wait to now perform them in our own style to our fans around the world."

The quartet members are no strangers to musical theatre; Carlos Marin was cast as Marius in Les Misérables when the show first premiered in Spain in 1993, while David Miller (originally from Colorado) played Rodolfo in Broadway's La bohème in 2003, which subsequently earned seven Tony Award nominations.

The live show was developed by long-term Il Divo collaborator and artistic director Brian Burke (La Reve and Celine Dion's residency shows in Las Vegas, Elton John, Rod Stewart and The Killers).

"It has been so inspiring to work with such legendary songs from the world of Broadway musicals for our new album," says Urs Buhler from IL DIVO. "We can't wait to now perform them in our own style to our fans around the world." For the live tour, they've recruited Lea Salonga, best known for her work in Miss Saigon.
