Diana Krall, Eros Ramazzotti, Enrique Iglesias to Perform in Croatia

ZAGREB, April 1, 2019 - Popular Canadian jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall will play Opatija on July 18, while another global star, Eros Ramazzotti, will take the stage in this northern Adriatic resort on August 15, organisers of the Opatija Summer Festival have announced.

Diana Krall is one of the highest selling musical artists of the modern age, having sold over 15 million albums worldwide. She has won three Grammy Awards, eight Juno Awards and released nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums.

The singer, who is married to British singer/songwriter Elvis Costello, released her most recent album, a collaboration with Tony Bennett titled 'Love Is Here to Stay', in September 2018.

Krall held her first concert in Croatia in the late 1990s.

Ramazzotti, who is popular in Italy and most European countries, and throughout the Spanish-speaking world, as he has released most of his albums in both Italian and Spanish, has released 11 studio albums, one EP, three compilation albums, three live albums, and 37 singles. He has sold over 60 million records in his 30-year career.

Global Latino star Enrique Iglesias will play Zagreb on December 1. His second concert in Croatia will be held as part of his tour "All the Hits Live", which began on March 11, 2018 in Budapest and ends in Madrid on December 7, 2019.

In Croatia, Iglesias will perform his greatest hits, like Bailamos, Rhythm Divine, Be With You, Duele El Corazon, Subeme La Radio, El Baño, Hero and Bailando. The show in the Zagreb Arena will involve a lot of special effects, including a LED light wall of 500 m2 and pyrotechnic effects.

The last time he performed in the Croatian capital was in 2016 on his birthday. “My favourite birthday present was my performance in Croatia. It was unbelievable, it was really cool. 18,000 people came,” he said in a video posted on his Facebook page.

Michael Buble Performing in Zagreb in September

The proud owner of numerous hits, four Grammy awards and more than 60 million albums sold, Michael Buble will perform on September 16, 2019, at the Arena Zagreb, reports Večernji List on November 16, 2018.

The Zagreb concert is part of a major world tour promoting his latest studio album, which will begin in Florida on February 13. This is the fourth major world tour in Michael Buble's career, and the first part includes 27 American cities, including concerts at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York and the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.

The European tour starts on May 20 in Birmingham. In addition to numerous British cities and the concert in Zagreb, the singer will visit and cheer up his fans in Ireland, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Bulgaria, Belgium and the Netherlands.

“I am doing what I was created for. I am returning to a world which needs love, romance and laughter more than ever, and I am channelling this through my new songs. This is the best album I have made so far,” said Buble. The love is proof of the power of music and its healing power. “It is true that I needed to make this album and that it had a very positive effect on me. These songs and this genre are my essence. They perfectly fit me and seem so natural.”

The latest album "Love" is a cross-section of love classics in new arrangements, including My Funny Valentine in Michael's interpretation, and La Vie En Rose, which he sang in a duet with Cecile McLorin Salvant. Together with Loren Allred, he breathed a new life into Kris Kristofferson's hit Help Me Make It Through The Night. The emotional centre of the album is his song Forever Love, which tells a story about his favourite role as a father and the vulnerability and strength that comes from unconditional love.

Michael Buble will remember this day well because he is about to receive his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The tickets for the Zagreb concert will be available starting from November 23, through the Eventim system and their sales venues.
