Michael Bublé coming to Prague’s O2 Arena

The crooner is touring to disprove tabloid rumors about his retirement

Jazz and blues crooner Michael Bublé will be at Prague’s O2 Arena on Sept. 17, 2019. Tickets go on sale to fan club members Nov. 21 at 10 am and to the general public, Nov. 23 at 10 am.

The concert is billed as an Evening with Michael Bublé, and will likely feature songs from his new album, Love, which was just released Nov 16. This is a big day for the Canadian-born singer, as he also is getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at the same time.

The UK and European tour starts in May in Birmingham, UK, and ends in November in Munich, Germany. The Prague date was not part of the original list announced recently, but was added along with stops in Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland and Sweden.

Michael Bublé was last in Prague in 2014 as part of his To Be Loved tour. For personal reasons, he cut back on touring and performing in 2016, and tabloid rumors this year said that he was retiring.

His management has denied that, though. The US leg of his new tour, starting in February, is billed as “Don’t Believe the Rumors.”

He began his career in 2000 with a self-financed album, and that led to him performing at a high-profile wedding of Canadian politician’s daughter. That in turn led to him meeting a producer who had worked with Michael Jackson, Madonna and Celine Dion, and this launched his career.

He shot to international fame with his 2005 album It’s Time and 2007 follow up Call Me Irresponsible. In total, he has nine studio albums and has sold some 30 million records worldwide, with his 2011 album Christmas selling 10.7 million copies worldwide.
Four of his albums in a row released from 2007 to ’13 hit the number one spot on the charts in the US and Canada. Nobody But Me, released in 2016, broke the streak by peaking at only number two.

He has won numerous awards including four Grammys for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, and 13 Juno Awards in various categories including Album of the Year and Artist of the Year.

He is also an ice hockey fan, and his contract is reported to require promoters to provide one local team hockey puck in his dressing room in every city. Since December 2008, he has co-owned the Vancouver Giants, a major junior ice hockey team playing in the Western Hockey League.
