For the entire routing, please see dates listed below.
Bocelli’s In Concert For Valentine’s tour includes a performance at Charlotte’s Spectrum Center on Friday, February 11, 2022, marking Bocelli’s third Valentine’s visit to the venue in five years. Tickets will go on sale the general public beginning on Monday, October 11, at 10 a.m. at spectrumcentercharlotte.com, ticketmaster.com, andreabocelli.com and gelbpro.com/tour. In Concert For Valentine’s will showcase some of Bocelli's most romantic music including songs from his inspiring new album Believe as well as a selection of arias, his beloved cross-over hits and famed love songs.
“I’ve eagerly waited for many long months to be able to say to you: where did we leave off?” said Bocelli. “Today I am pleased to give each of you, my dear friends from my second beloved homeland, a date to put in your diaries. Returning to the stage means much more than just a concert. For me, it means meeting the people and things I love again and to share a common drive that aims to celebrate love and life and the One who gave it to us. In my heart, I am already in the United States, to embrace the many people in the many cities of my fall tour. And to those who will choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day with me, I say: ‘Have a little patience, and while you wait to experience it together, please allow me to give you a piece of advice - make every day Valentine’s Day for you!’”

Details are being finalized and will be announced in the coming months. Added Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles: “Charlotte has a rich history of hosting high-profile basketball events, including the NBA All-Star Game, NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament games, the ACC Men's Basketball Tournament, the CIAA Men's and Women's Basketball Tournaments and this year’s Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Shootout. We look forward to welcoming basketball fans from across the country to enjoy our hospitality and culture, and we’re grateful to the Charlotte Sports Foundation and Jordan Brand for organizing this event that will bring so much recognition and positive economic impact to our city.” “This a great opportunity to showcase our city’s passion for all things basketball and a wonderful venue in the Spectrum Center,” said Fred Whitfield, President and Vice Chairman of Hornets Sports & Entertainment. “We look forward to partnering with the Charlotte Sports Foundation and Jordan Brand to create a memorable experience for basketball fans, as well as all the players and other representatives of the participating schools.” "We are excited to be working with the Charlotte Sports Foundation and Jordan Brand in bringing this signature event to Charlotte," said Clint Overby, vice president of ESPN Events. "The four participating schools represent some of the very best in intercollegiate athletics, and the event will be another great addition to the sports lineup in the community." Morrison said the possibility exists to expand the event to include other Jordan-affiliated schools in 2023 or 2024, or to extend the partnership into subsequent years. “We’re hoping this will be the start of one of the most anticipated, coveted and competitive events in all of college basketball each and every year,” said Morrison. “Charlotte has all the resources to make this an overwhelming success including an incredibly passionate fan base, and we look forward to seeing this event grow in stature for years to come.” ###
