Michael Bublé kicked off An Evening with Michael Bublé tour last week in Tampa, Florida. The tour will visit 31 cities in the US over the next few months before taking off to the artist’s native Canada, UK and Ireland, returning to North America, and finishing off in Europe.
The tour, in support of his tenth album Love (which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200), was long awaited as it comes after a five-year hiatus Bublé had taken to tend to the health of his son. We are so happy that Bublé has remained the positive charmer that we all know and love.
"I’m going to come back to a world that needs love and romance and laughter more than it has in a long time. I’m going to be a conduit to that. This is the greatest record I’ve ever made.”
Despite the struggles he’s been through, the four-time Grammy winner has managed to keep his optimism and sense of humor, throwing around jokes between his many songs during his performance. Madison Square Garden was treated to jokes about things he has been grateful for over the past years (Cardi B, of course) and his love affair with hamburgers.
Q: How long have the setlists been?
22 songs, lasting about 2 hours.
Q: What does the average setlist look like?
Check out the setlist from the tour’s first show in Tampa!
Q: Has the set been the same every night?
Bublé has performed the same songs every night, but each tour has a special twist when he pulls up a fan to sing onstage with him!
Q: What does he open with?
The appropriately uplifting “Feeling Good!”
Q: Is there an encore?
Yes! He begins with “Where and When,” continues with “Everything” and finishes off the show with the classic “Always on My Mind.”
Q: Are there any special moments?
Yes. More tender-hearted moments include a tribute to his late grandfather with “(Up a) Lazy River,” a romantic story about his wife preceding “When I Fall in Love,” and a performance of “Forever Now” in honor of his three children.
Q: How about covers?
Of course! It’s not a Bublé show without the crooner giving his own special take on old classics. “Cry Me a River,” “Sway,” “My Funny Valentine,” and “Buona Sera Signorina” are just some of the covers that Bublé performs.
