Concert Season Kicks Off!

The world’s most famous and beloved classical music artist, Maestro Andrea Bocelli, is heading our way this month with a 70-piece orchestra and a 60-person choir to perform at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley on 29 October.


The national tour includes just five cities, including Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and our own Hunter Valley.

Drawing from his extensive back catalogue – which spans almost three decades – Maestro Bocelli is set to uplift audiences with a stunning selection of soul-stirring arias, enduring love songs and beloved crossover hits.

“The Australian tour dates are not just concerts to me; they are opportunities for us to immerse ourselves in musical beauty on a grand scale,” Andrea Bocelli says.

“For these upcoming shows, my aim is to restore some serenity and enter gently into people’s hearts. If my previous tours are anything to go by, I’ve always found Australian audiences to be passionate, enthusiastic and friendly. I genuinely appreciate my generous and engaged Australian fanbase and am proud to be even a tiny part of the soundtrack to so many people’s lives.”

“With its ability to inspire and heal, music is its own language, and I never tire of performing these songs – even the ones I’ve been singing in concert for more than 25 years! – because they move me so deeply. Music is essential nourishment for the human spirit. What better way to celebrate the joys of life than through song!”

Award-winning Australian singer-songwriter and musician Delta Goodrem AM will perform with Andrea and solo at the winery show, along with Bocelli’s children Virginia and Matteo, who also feature on his upcoming Christmas album, A Family Christmas. For tickets, visit
