Italian soft rock balladeer Eros Ramazzotti, named for the Greek god of love, will perform on April 30 in Tel Aviv’s Menora Mivtachim Arena.

The Italian superstar, now 52, is being brought to Israel by the Helicon music group and Guy Besser and Shay Mor Yosef of BlueStone Productions, which produced Enrique Iglesias’s two recent Tel Aviv concerts.

With 60 million albums sold in his 30-year career, Ramazzotti is known for his unique voice, which is somewhat nasal in tone but resonant with audiences who also love his passionate, catchy tunes that are often autobiographical in nature.

The singer and guitarist — who learned to play piano from his music-loving, construction worker father — started his career by winning a youth music contest in 1981 and launching his first album four years later.

Ramazzotti has performed duets with Cher, Tina Turner, Andrea Bocelli, Joe Cocker, Luciano Pavarotti and Ricky Martin, among others.

Ramazzotti will perform in Israel as part of his world “Perfetto” tour. Tickets range in price from NIS 290 ($75) to NIS 1,800 ($464).
