If you're still looking for a Christmas present for the mammy/daddy, this gig could be just the ticket (literally).

Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli has announced a date at Dublin's 3Arena next year, where he'll be backed by an orchestra and a choir.

Having just released his latest album 'Cinema' last October, you can expect to hear songs from that - as well as from his previous albums, which he's sold 80 million of worldwide, FYI - at the 3Arena on September 28th.

Tickets are from €55 including booking fee and on sale this Thursday, December 17th at 9am from usual outlets.
