Miss Saigon star Lea Salonga has announced she will join Carlos, David, Urs and Sebastien live on stage at Phones 4u Arena Manchester this October on both solo performances and duets with the group.

Il Divo’s signature romantic and emotional performances will include heartfelt classics like Some Enchanted Evening (South Pacific), Tonight (West Side Story), Memory (Cats) and Can You Feel The Love Tonight (The Lion King).

“I am thrilled to be joining Il Divo as they continue their Musical Affair tour” says Salonga. “Having such a passion for musical theater since an early age myself, I cannot imagine a more talented group to join forces with to share these timeless songs with audiences of all ages. And it doesn’t hurt that they are so handsome to look at too.”

“We’re excited to be bringing our brand new show with the incredible Lea Salonga ‘home’ to the UK," says Sébastien. "Delving into the world of Broadway repertoire is new territory for us, and being able to create a wonderful new show with such an established and celebrated star of many musicals is such an honour."

Lea Salonga is a Filipina singer/actress best known for originating the Olivier award-winning role of Kim in the West End production of Miss Saigon, then later bringing it to the Broadway stage for which she won a Tony, among other awards. The first Asian to play Eponine in Les Misérables on Broadway, she subsequently returned to the show in 2007 as Fantine, and again reprised the role for the sold-out 25th anniversary concert in London.
