Baila Ischgl: To mark the end of the ski season on 30 April 2017 in the Alpine lifestyle metropolis, rock will be combined with dolce vita in the form of Zucchero, here on the world-famous Idalp stage in the middle of the ski resort during the Top of the Mountain Concert at 1 p.m. Zucchero will get winter sports enthusiasts rocking in the Silvretta Arena at 2,320 meters altitude in front of the magnificent mountain backdrop with powerful vocals and impressive songs such as ‘Partigiano Reggiano’ from his current album ‘Black Cat’ and global hits from his 30-year carrier like ‘Baila Morena’, ‘Senza una Donna’ and ‘Miserere’. Accompanying him on stage: his 13-member band – among the best in their profession. Among them, the Hammond virtuoso Brian Auger, guitarist Kat Dyson, drummer Queen Cora Dunham and bassist and musical director Polo Jones. Admission is included in the ski pass price. The Silvretta Arena itself is open for winter sports activities until 1 May.
In Blues we trust
Anyone talking about Italian rock music cannot fail to mention Zucchero. Born on 25 September 1955 in Roncocesi in the province of Regio Emilia, Adelmo Fornaciari is the best known Italian rock musician, singer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter today. Legends like John Lee Hooker, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Joe Cocker, Miles Davis, Elton John or Queen has already collaborated with the ‘father of Italian blues’, who wrote global hits like ‘Senza Una Donna’ (featuring Paul Young) and ‘Diamante’ (featuring Randy Crawford, both in 1991). His music, which he performs in Italian and English, is inspired by gospel, blues and rock. His successful career spans over 30 years and Zucchero has sold more than 60 million albums and had number one chart hits 13 times in Italy alone. Ischgl is the first stop on his new ‘Black Cat’ world tour 2017. The Italian rocker will perform his current album ‘Black Cat’ here in the middle of the ski area together with many other hits, like ‘Baila’, ‘Diavolo In Me’, ‘Miserere’ and ‘Senza Una Donna’.
