Andrea Bocelli to perform in Philly at Wells Fargo Center months after abrupt cancellation

Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli abruptly canceled his Dec. 7, 2023, concert at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center, citing ‘health challenges.’ The concert is now taking place on Feb. 24

Editor’s Note (Feb. 21, 2024, 1:28 p.m.): Andrea Bocelli’s recent concerts in Orlando, Florida, and Baltimore, Maryland, have gone on as scheduled. The Philadelphia show at the Wells Fargo Center is still on for Feb. 21, 2024. Some tickets were on sale Wednesday afternoon.

The crowd was in its seats, prepared for the opera icon to take the Wells Fargo Center stage, but when he did, it wasn’t to belt out beautiful words into a microphone.

Instead, a tuxedoed Andrea Bocelli took the South Philadelphia stage, but it was only to apologize to the crowd that he couldn’t perform Thursday night, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Philly cancellation came a day after the 65-year-old Italian tenor also canceled his Boston concert due to “health challenges.”

Some people responded to the Philly cancellation on social media by expressing anger over having already paid for parking and having taken the time to get to the arena.

After the Philly cancellation, Bocelli’s Facebook page posted video that showed his wife Veronica Berti telling the Boston crowd why he couldn’t perform there on Wednesday.

“This has not been an easy decision to make,” Berti said, while noting that Bocelli couldn’t perform due to advice from his medical team.

“The last thing Andrea would ever want is to disappoint his fans,” she said.
