Zucchero´s Tour




Italian superstar Zucchero returns to…bringing his current D.O.C. Tour which will see him performing all over North America, Australia and Europe in 2020, including two nights the London’s Royal Albert Hall and an astounding 12 nights at the Arena di Verona, Italy!

Rainforest Fund benefit concert, this past Monday in New York City

Zucchero was one of a star-studded line-up that performed live at the Beacon Theatre in New York for the 30th edition of the RAINFOREST FUND benefit concert. We’ll Be Together was the chosen title for this year’s event which was presented by Robert Downey Jr. and saw the participation of some of the most coveted names on the international music scene, including Sting, Bruce Springsteen, the Eurythmics, James Taylor, John Mellencamp, Debbie Harry, Bob Geldof, Ricky Martin, DMC, MJ Rodriguez, Adrienne Warren and Shaggy.

With over 60 million records sold, Zucchero recently released his latest studio album D.O.C. (Disco di Origine Controllata), an album of “authentic and genuine” compositions. Says Zucchero, “I’m very protective of this album because it’s very much ‘my’ album, in the intimate sense, meaning that the 11 tracks reflect my current state of mind, what I think, what I feel – more freely and directly than in the past – in a no-frills, much simpler, yet more complex manner.

The making of D.O.C. included recording sessions in Iceland, Los Angeles and San Francisco with young, indie-like producers and musicians such as Nicolas Rebscher (Germany), Joel Humlén (Sweden), Ian Brendon Scott & Mark Jackson (USA), Steve Robson (UK) and Eg White (UK), all merging under my direction and that of Don Was, my brother in blues.”

Zucchero’s music has broken borders everywhere, thanks to countless collaborations with international artists like Bryan Adams, The Blues Brothers, Bono, Jeff Beck, Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, Joe Cocker, Elvis Costello, Miles Davis, Peter Gabriel, John Lee Hooker, BB King, Mark Knopfler, Brian May, Luciano Pavarotti, Iggy Pop, Queen, Alejandro Sanz, Sting and many others.
