Matteo Bocelli with a gift for Poles. Fans on the Vistula River loved this handsome guy

Matteo Bocelli sold out concerts in Poznań and Wrocław half a year before the planned performances in Poland. Therefore, the singer prepared a surprise for his fans and announced two additional concerts: on June 25 in Poznań and June 26 in Zabrze. Tickets for these performances will go on sale on February 16.

20/06 – Poznań, Earth Hall Congress Center
22/06 – Kraków, ICE Kraków Congress Centre
25/06 – Poznań, Earth Hall Congress Center
26/06 – Zabrze, House of Music and Dance
27/06 – Wrocław, National Forum of Music.

The 26-year-old singer released his debut album “Matteo” at the end of 2023. The album includes, among others: songs “Chasing Stars” (co-author is Ed Sheeran), “For You”, “Fasi” and “I’m Here”.

He was born in October 1997, as the second son Andrea Bocelli and his then wife Enrica Cenzatti. Matteo has a brother two years older than him Amos and 11-year-old half-sister Victoria, who is the fruit of the love of Andrea and his second wife Veronica Berti.

He started his adventure with music at the age of six. It was then that, encouraged by his famous father, he started learning to play the piano. However, it was not love at first sound. Initially, Matteo rebelled against singing and piano lessons. Only after many years did music become his passion and the path he decided to follow.

“It took many years for me to appreciate music and what I do. I am no longer rebellious. I am ready to subordinate my life to music,” said Matteo Bocelli in one of the interviews.

In 2015, Matteo Bocelli began studying at Conservatorio Boccherini in Lucca, Italy. He made his debut on stage among Leo Nucci and Summi Jo singing Verdi in the Roman Colosseum in his native language. He also performed as a tenor at the Teatro del Silenzio – an amphitheater located in Lajatico, the hometown of Andrea Bocelli.

He gained international fame in 2018 thanks to the song “Fall On Me”, which he sang in a duet with his father. The song appeared on Andrea’s album “Si” and was included on the film’s soundtrack “The Nutcracker. Four Realms”.
