Theater Dates Added for "The Journey" Before it Even Releases
Updated: Apr 10
Christian broadcaster TBN teams up with famed tenor Andrea Bocelli for this musical journey through his native Italy.
The thought of a trip through the stunning countryside of Italy on horseback sounds like a fantastic journey even before you throw in show-stopping music from top tenor Andrea Bocelli and an impressive cast of contemporary Christian musicians. That is what moviegoers can expect from The Journey: A Music Special from Andrea Bocelli when it hits the big screen this weekend.
The project comes from Trinity Broadcasting Network, which has previously worked with the Italian maestro on Christmas specials that aired on the channel itself. This film, however, is a considerably more ambitious production and will feature the singer riding along Italy's famous Via Francigena and stopping in towns, cathedrals and even an ancient Roman amphitheater for musical performances.
He will be joined along the way by Christian singers like Michael W. Smith, Tori Kelly, Tauren Wells, and Taya - all of whom perform and also interact with him about profound subjects like life, faith and family. The head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, makes an appearance in the film as well to convey a special blessing.
Originally scheduled as a four-day engagement in theaters, strong advanced ticket sales have extended that to eight days, meaning The Journey: A Music Special from Andrea Bocelli will run from Sunday, April 2nd through April 9th, which of course is Easter Sunday.
