The Maestro says: “I have been moved by the passion for my music and the appreciation shown by Irish audiences on previous visits. I must play one final show in Dublin before I retire. I expect this to be an emotional and very special evening for all".

As with previous tours, the production coming to 3Arena will feature over 200 musicians and singers on stage.
