World Wild Tour 2022
The crowning achievement of an outstanding concert season: Zucchero meets the Rolling Stones.
The Italian music icon opens for the legendary British band on July 27 in Gelsenkirchen, Germany
For Zucchero and the Rolling Stones- the story continues! For the second time in his career, Zucchero has been asked to open a show for the legendary British rockers, this time in Germany on July 27, 2022 at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen.
“I am honored and grateful to the Stones for choosing me a second time as “Gladiator” to open one of their shows, this time in Gelsenkirchen”, says Zucchero. “It’s another important step in my journey. Another great story to tell my grandchildren. Long live the Stones!”
The performance with the Rolling Stones marks the crowning finale of his German concerts this summer. The Italian music icon gave seven concerts in Germany, which were celebrated by the media and fans alike, and attracted 35,000 visitors.
Zucchero will perform all over the world until October, arriving in North America on September 9, 2022 with a show in Atlantic City NJ at the Hard Rock Casino and ending October 2, 2022 in Tucson AZ at the Fox Theater. View Zucchero’s full tour schedule here.
After two years of restrictions due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the “World Wild Tour” started on 18 April in Glasgow (UK), followed by two sold-out concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The 14 concerts in Italy, held at the Arena in Verona, attracted more than 150,000 people from Italy and other countries.
With more than two hours of music and a constantly changing set, Zucchero makes every show a unique and unforgettable experience. He revives some of his greatest hits, but also plays songs from his newer albums such as “Discover” and “D.O.C”. He is accompanied on stage by an exceptionally talented supergroup. With an ever-evolving set full of highlights, Zucchero takes his audience on a journey through his entire career, encompassing both his newer songs and the energy and momentum of the hits that helped write the history of Italian music. A wonderful stage set provides the perfect backdrop for this fantastic show: a gigantic sun heralding rebirth, with a selection of images inside representing Zucchero’s entire musical journey.
