Sarah Brightman concert chronology

The Symphony World Tour was the forth worldwide concert tour by English soprano singer Sarah Brightman that started on 4 November 2008 in the city of Monterrey, Mexico and concluded on 5 April 2009 in Taipei, Taiwan. There were special guests that joined Brightman in the concerts: Argentinean countertenor Fernando Lima and tenors Alessandro Safina and Mario Frangoulis. The tour concept was a journey through the musical career that Sarah Brightman has had so far -3 decades- and includes several high-tech virtual scenery that takes the audience from an enchanted forest, baroque lamps to an atmosphere of fairytales.[1] Much anticipation surrounded The Symphony World Tour especially since the production cost was reportedly more than $2 million and involved more than 100 tons of equipment.[2]
