Sings Mario Lanza and the Classics TOUR 2017
Australia’s hottest classical treasure Mark Vincent will tour Australia in October/November showcasing his latest album, A Tribute to Mario Lanza.
Eight years after he won Australia’s heart and went on to record seven chart-topping albums with worldwide sales exceeding half a million units, Mark Vincent has set a new benchmark: a ‘virtual duet’ with one of the giants of the Golden Age of Hollywood, Mario Lanza.
The show will feature a beautifully crafted set-list performed with band and strings pulling from the album, and Mark’s distinguished catalogue. Mark sings alongside Mario in ‘Because You’re Mine,’ one of the legendary movie star’s biggest hits. Re-mastered and re-edited, the song, taken from the MGM musical of the same name, is given a fresh and brilliant new dynamic with the addition of Mark’s rich tenor tones. Mark will also have a special guest joining him on the tour.
Like Mark, Mario Lanza was a talented tenor frequently compared to Enrico Caruso, who inspired him and whom he portrayed in The Great Caruso, the top grossing movie of 1951. Lanza died in 1958, just 10 years after he made his Hollywood debut. By then he was the most famous tenor in the world, adored by millions around the world.
“It’s an amazing thrill to be singing with the greatest tenor of his time,” Mark says, “I feel, in a humble way, I am simpatico with him. We were both brought up in Italian families – he was raised in Philadelphia – where there was a lot of love, but also a lot of hard times. That seems to go with the territory. As a kid, Caruso performed in cafes, singing Neapolitan favourites. I sang for patrons at my grandfather Bruno’s restaurant from the age of ten. For tenors, apparently, it’s never too soon to start!”
Mark Vincent is the highest selling and charting Classical Crossover Artist in ARIA Chart History. ‘A Tribute to Mario Lanza’ debuted at No.1 on the ARIA Classical Crossover Chart and is charting in the Top Ten ARIA Mainstream Album Chart.
