Their lucky Southern California fans are privy to the tour’s last two concerts: May 18 at Indio’s Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and May 19 at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula.

The multinational quartet, known for their classical/pop crossover romantic renditions — often sung in Spanish, Italian, Latin, and French as well as English – of well-known songs (“Feelings,” “Unchained Melody,” “Without You”) are comprised of Swiss tenor Urs Buhler, French pop singer Sebastien Izambard, Spanish baritone Carlos Marin and American tenor David Miller.

For Miller, what sets Il Divo apart is “the range of colors that the four of our voices has.”

When describing the sound that defines Il Divo, Miller attempts to break it down.

“(We) use classical techniques, certainly,” Miller explains. “And, more importantly, we definitely veer in a cinematic, dramatic direction, which is much more towards the operatic.”

Yet, their sound is an undefined blend of classical, pop, opera, and theatrical music.

“Blurring the boundaries upsets the purists,” adds Buhler. “But that’s a good thing to do.”

Marin adds his take as well: “That connection between us, the way that the combination produces the magic, it’s stronger than ever.”

That magic is found on the group’s latest effort “Wicked Game,” release in late-2011. The album shows the four singers growing as artists.

“Since we started, there have been so many people out there trying to do what we do,” points out Buhler. “So we needed to change, or it’s no longer interesting for us, or for the audience.”

“We’re constantly trying to push things upwards to a different level,” Buhler continued. “Whenever we do something new, we want to do it better. And we’re still managing to do that, which fills me with great satisfaction.”

Added Izambard, per the recording process of “Wicked Game”: “It was a case of trying to think of Il Divo as a new project. It’s been a big investment for all of us, in terms of time, and passion, and creativity.”

Miller sums everything up nicely.

“(Il Divo) is about communication, emotion, and passion.”
