The Andrea Bocelli concert will take place in New York’s Central Park on September 15, 2011, but it’s not just any concert. It’s a very special musical event featuring Andrea Bocelli alongside the New York Philharmonic as a gift to the Big Apple.
The concert will be recorded in high-def by THIRTEEN for a national PBS broadcast on GREAT PERFORMANCES later this fall and will later be released on CD and DVD by Sugar/Decca in November.

New York City’s Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, commented on the event:
The Great Lawn in Central Park is one of the most remarkable and beautiful outdoor venues in the world and it is a great pleasure to welcome Andrea Bocelli back to New York to perform there. This free concert will be a memorable cultural moment for the thousands of New Yorkers and visitors that will watch the event live in the park, and many, many more through the broadcast by WNET.
