Michael Bublé’s First Concert Following A Hiatus Had Him Crying For 2 Hours After It Ended
He took two years off to be with his family.
You could probably pinpoint the sound of the singer's suave voice from anywhere and at any time. The BC native has been in the music industry since the early 2000s and has gained a following of devoted fans. But in 2016, his family went through a devastating event causing him to put music on hold for a while. Michael Bublé's comeback in 2018 got him so emotional and the reason why will have you reaching for tissues too.
The singer's oldest son Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016. Now six-years-old, at the time the three-year-old had Hepatoblastoma which is reportedly common in infants and normally occurs as an abdominal mass.
Bublé shares his son with Argentinian actress and model Luisana Lopilato who he married in 2011. The two have another son, Elias, who's three-years-old.
When the family got the heartbreaking news about their son, the singer cancelled his tour and took a break from both recording and touring.
Before that, he went on the To Be Loved Tour that spanned from 2013 to 2015 worldwide.
In February 2017, he announced on Twitter that Noah "has been progressing well during his treatment and the doctors are very optimistic about the future for our little boy."
After about two years, Bublé returned from his hiatus in July 2018 at Croke Park in Dublin to 70,000 fans according to Smooth Radio.
In an interview Smooth Radio had with the singer, he told them, "'That was emotional. I think I cried for like two hours after. I was so emotional, man. I remember walking off the stage, and I was a mess. It meant a lot to me.'"
When speaking about the comeback concert, Buble said, "'It meant a lot to me, actually. It was one of those big moments in my life. I didn’t know if I would come back, or when, and what would happen.'"
The father of two is currently completing his sixth world tour called An Evening with Michael Bublé.
It followed his tenth studio album called "Love" which came out in November 2018.
The tour began on February 13, 2019, and he made a stop in Canada during the summer at venues in Toronto, London, Ottawa, Montreal, and Quebec City.
Right now, the singer is on a brief break and will return on stage on February 1 in New Zealand to begin the Oceania leg of the tour.
