(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Nearly 40,000 tickets have been sold for Luciano Pavarotti's farewell concerts in Canada and Washington, DC in less than two weeks since tickets were released for sale for "A Night to Remember — The Farewell Tour." Pavarotti will perform in Montreal on June 3 at the Bell Centre; Toronto on June 6 at the Air Canada Centre; Calgary on June 11 at the Pengrowth Saddledome; Vancouver on June 16 at GM Place; and Washington, DC on June 21 at the Verizon Center. This is the last opportunity to see Pavarotti perform live in Canada and Washington, DC and has resulted in near sell-outs in several of the venues.
Sponsors of the "A Night to Remember — The Farewell Tour" are Air Canada, Canadian Pacific Railroad and Pengrowth. The Washington, DC concert is also supported by Mercedes Benz and Park Hyatt. Maestro Concerts, an affiliate of the European promoter wdp entertainment gmbh, is presenting the shows. — Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
