Interview by Sarah Rix
May 18 marks the return of poperatic music stars Il Divo to our shores. Touring their new album, Wicked Game, and with 12 dates scheduled in Canada, plus more across the world, the vocal powerhouses have been keeping a busy schedule. Simon Cowell, a name often associated with reality television, formed the four-piece in 2004 after a global search for talented male vocalists. Consisting of French pop singer Sébastien Izambard, Spanish baritone Carlos Marín, Swiss tenor Urs Bühler and American tenor David Miller, Il Divo has released seven albums, selling over 25 million.
Live in Limbo reached Bühler by phone. He and the group had just met with the Queen for tea (literally). While not their first time meeting the English monarch, the opportunity was undoubtedly a big moment for the band. Il Divo is also set to perform at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert this weekend. After a stop in Windsor, ON, they play Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on May 19.
