It's the latest in a long line of successes for Il Divo, whose previous albums 'Il Divo', 'Ancora' and 'Siempre' have sold over 22 million copies, scoring 36 no. 1 chart positions across 26 countries.

The number 1 caps an incredible week for Il Divo, who gave a scintillating performance at London's St Luke's Church on Tuesday night to be broadcast Friday December 12th, 2008 as part of Radio 2's Friday music night series. In the past seven days the group have also appeared on GMTV, This Morning and Children In Need.

Staged and choreographed by William Baker (Kylie, Jamiroquai), Il Divo's spectacular 2009 world tour begins at Manchester's MEN Arena Saturday February 21, 2009, visiting 22 European cities (including 9 UK arena dates) followed by a 3 month North American tour before closing the year in Australia, Japan and South East Asia.

Il Divo - David Miller, Carlos Marín, Urs Buhler & Sébastien Izambard - have previously entertained 1.5m fans in 30 countries over the course of two sold-out world tours.
