11 September 2019 – Four-time Grammy Award-winner Michael Buble has sent a video message to Croatian fans ahead of his first concert in the country next week.
Buble will be performing in Croatia for the first time on 16 September 2019 at Arena Zagreb and sent a short video message to his fans.
“Hi Croatia, it’s Michael Buble and I can’t wait to see all of you at the Arena Zagreb on September 16th. So please come and celebrate love with me. See you there,” Buble said.
The concert, organised by Star Production, is an opportunity for Michael to visit the land of his grandfather, who had a big influence on him getting into music.
Although born in Canada, Buble’s roots are originally from Croatia. The Buble name is mentioned in records in Croatia as far back as the 14th century and it was Michael’s grandfather, Mihovil, who was originally from Trogir near Split on the Dalmatian coast. Those who know the family says that Michael’s father had a boat named ‘Dalmatia’.
The Canadian star grew up listening to Mihovil’s old jazz records and it was he who convinced Michael to enter a talent show as a 17-year-old which he won. The concert in Croatia will be part his big world tour promoting his latest album Love which started in Florida at the start of the year. The album is dedicated to his 5-year-old son, Noah, who had been diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016.
“I am happy that I am coming back on the scene to sing for my fans who along with my family have been a great support these last two and a half years. I think we are all ready to have a great time at my concert in Zagreb,” Michael says.
The European part of the tour started in Birmingham in May. Bublé, who has sold over 75 million records, received his own Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Tickets for the Zagreb are available via Eventim and at their outlets.
