Il Divo will tour Europe with Welsh mezzo-soprano star Katherine Jenkins, including dates in Germany, Holland, Finland and Denmark.

International pop-opera group Il Divo are set to tour Europe with Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins as part of a series of joint headlining shows. The tour dates, scheduled for March 2013, will see them perform shows in Germany, Finland, Denmark, Holland and Belgium.

In an announcement on their website, Seb from the band commented: "We’ve long been friends with Katherine, and as we looked to stage a tour around our Greatest Hits release, we thought what better way to approach it than to offer our fans the ultimate evening of classical crossover music by inviting Katherine to perform and also join us on some brand new duets."

He added: "We hope we can make some wonderful music together!" Jenkins will also be touring soon with Andrea Bocelli, and releasing her latest album This Is Christmas on November 26th.

Il Divo's tour will also include two 'greatest hits'-style shows in Finland without Jenkins. The pop-opera foursome's new collection, The Greatest Hits, will be available from November 26th as well, and features some of the most popular recordings from their career.

As the tour schedule stands, there are no dates in the UK.
