Il Divo will play a series of intimate shows Celebrate Christmas With Il Divo, which kicks off with two dates at Hammersmith Apollo (December 7th and 8th) and then travels to North America for six more dates.
The shows feature international violin virtuoso Vanessa-Mae and 21-year-old rising star Camilla Kerslake. They will join Il Divo onstage for two collaborations a-piece, as well as a few solo performances each.
This is a first-ever for Il Divo who have performed Christmas songs in front of The Queen and past U.S. Presidents, but never before a concert audience.

As well as preparing several new Christmas songs they perform stunning renditions of "Silent Night", "White Christmas", "O Holy Night" and "Amazing Grace".
Il Divo will complete their largest worldwide tour to date 'An Evening with Il Divo' in November; the massive trek has brought them to 81 cities and 32 countries. They kicked off at Manchester’s MEN Arena back in February, which was followed by 10 UK dates and featured two shows at London’s O2.
An Evening with Il Divo supported the group’s fifth album ‘The Promise’ which debuted at No.1 in nine countries, sold over 3million copies worldwide in just over 2 months, including 500,000 in the UK. A live album and DVD are being planned as a result of this tour.
