Andrea Bocelli will perform for the first time in Portugal at a football stadium, after, in 2017, he sold out the Altice Meo Arena, in Lisbon.

The Italian tenor's performance in Coimbra was scheduled for 2020, but the concert was postponed to June 2021 due to the covid-19 pandemic.

With over 90 million records sold and 10 operas recorded, Andrea Bocelli will perform in Coimbra over two days, in concerts with seating, "properly marked and with social distance". Tickets are on sale at www.concertocoimbra.pt and usual places.
