Multinational crossover vocal quartet Il Divo’s is bringing its greatest hits tour to St. Petersburg’s Mahaffey Theater on Friday, Feb. 25.

Tickets to see Il Divo are still available on TicketMaster, and start at $65.

The show, billed in June 2021 as the “For Once In My Life” tour, was supposed to celebrate Motown, as well as Il Divo’s greatest hits, but baritone Carlos Marín’s death from COVID-19 on Dec. 19 removed the Motown aspect. Covering for the late baritone will be Mexican-American baritone Steven LaBrie, and all three surviving members will remain present for the remainder of this year’s world tour.

It has not been said if this will be Il Divo’s last time on the road, but with any luck, LaBrie’s powerful vocals will make it feel like Marín is still with them, and the new quartet may carry on.
