Canadian native pop-opera crossover group The Tenors have captivated live audiences at venues all over the world. The chart-topping, multi-platinum selling artists have notably performed for a long roster of distinctive public figures including Queen Elizabeth II, President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey and many more. They have also shared the stage with huge music superstars like Paul McCartney, Andrea Bocelli, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and Justin Bieber.
The Tenors are comprised of Victor Micallef, Fraser Walters and Clifton Murray. The sensational trio continues to sell out live shows across the globe and is currently performing on their critically-acclaimed Fan Favorites Tour, which includes a stop at City National Grove of Anaheim in Anaheim, California on Nov. 6 (Tickets). Here are five reasons you’ll want to see The Tenors perform live.
1. A genre-crossing setlist
The Tenors have established themselves as a world-class vocal trio who love to mix things up at live shows with an eclectic setlist that offers something for everyone. From classical songs like “Granada” and “Nessun Dorma” to signature covers of “The Prayer,” Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” and classic rock megahits like “Sweet Caroline” and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” The Tenors effortlessly cross multiple genres to deliver an energetic and entertaining live show. Weaved throughout the set, of course, are The Tenors’ sensational original songs like “Under One Sky,” “I Remember You” and “Lead with Your Heart.”
2. Celestial vocal sound
The Tenors have garnered a massive global fan base and continue to sell out venues everywhere because their rich, powerful harmonies are breathtaking. There arguably isn’t a song this trio can’t sing, and their extraordinary collective sound is soul-stirring and soars to nearly celestial heights. Hearing any artist live brings a personal, intimate, multi-dimensional element that listening to studio recordings simply can’t match. Hearing The Tenors sing live is magical.
3. Stunning member solos
Each member of The Tenors has his own sound, which seamlessly and beautifully contributes to the collective sonic beauty the group creates. At live shows, the guys also showcase their individual vocal strengths by performing stunning solos which have included Clifton Murray singing Roy Orbison’s country classic “Crying,” Fraser Walters singing “Bring Him Home” from “Les Miserables” and Victor Micallef singing classical standard “O Sole Mio.”
4. Engaging stories
The Tenors frequently take time to connect with the audience in between songs by sharing stories about themselves and their families (such as the birth of Fraser’s daughter) or introducing a song by explaining what it means to them. Opening up and establishing this kind of connection enables fans to see a more personal side of Clifton, Fraser and Victor and is a fun, engaging part of their concerts.
5. Exceptional backing band
The Tenors’ renowned vocals are backed by an exceptional band which includes drums, keyboard/piano/synth, guitar, bass and violin. Recent sets have featured the band performing a full song sans The Tenors, which one review describes as “mesmerizing.”
