Steven Labrie is set to join Il Divo on tour.
The baritone announced the news that he would join the group following the sudden death of Carlos Marin on social media.
He said, “Following the tragic passing of Il Divo’s Carlos Marin, the remaining members of the multi-national group – America’s David Miller, France’s Sebastien Izambard and Switzerland’s Urs Buhler – will proceed with their tour in tribute to Marin. The tour, previously, the “For Once in My Life Tour” will go on as a Greatest Hits Tour and include special guest vocalist, Mexican American baritone Steven LaBrie. The tour will be filled with Il Divo’s hits from their vast catalog of songs with an incredible stage production. All tickets from the originally scheduled dates will be honored at the 2022 shows.”
The U.S. tour will take place beginning Feb. 2 and will be refocused as a career retrospective and tribute to Marin in the wake of his death from COVID-19 just before Christmas.
LaBrie recently performed at Carnegie Hall and returned to the Tiroler Festspiele Erl in December. This summer he returns to the Central City Opera.
