Italian singer-songwriter – Antonello Venditti will be performing in Malta on Friday, August 24 at the MFCC Open Air Grounds, Ta’ Qali.
Organised by Stand Out Events, the upcoming concert will mark the second Malta visit by Antonello Venditti, and his return to Malta after 11 years.
Venditti’s concert is expected to be one of the main events of this Summer, with special guests for the night including popular local band Winter Moods between 8pm and 9pm.
Born in Rome, Venditti is a fan of the Roma football club and has written several songs that helped his fame, but not only in Rome, but also throughout Italy - which goes to prove that his music bridged many social gaps and differences. This in fact helped him make a successful comeback in 2001 when Roma won their third scudetto and Venditti released Circo Massimo.
Antonello Venditti mostly if not always, wrote and writes his own lyrics. In the mid-seventies to the mid-eighties, Venditti enjoyed his most biggest success mainly in Italy, and was part of the songwriters scene of that time. At that time, he was even topping the music charts and the Italian hit parade almost monthly.
Venditti’s songs are mostly melodic, harmonious, a few even dance hits in the late seventies – Sotto il Segno dei Pesci, some political manifestos, but also nostalgic views on life, memories and day to day life in Italy.
Antonello Venditti’s two and a half hour concert will be packed with songs that will also feature his greatest hits like, In questo mondo di ladri, Amici mai, Altamarea, Le tue mani su di me, Ricordati di me and more.
Venditti is expected to attract a numerous audience, in view of his considerable following in Malta and Gozo. Moreover, the concert should also target Italian tourists, since Venditti also attracts a large, loyal following all across the Italian Peninsula.
Antonello Venditti concert ticket prices are as follows:- Bronze Standing – 25 euros, Silver Standing – 40 euros, Gold Seated – 80 euros and Platinium VIP Seated – 150 euros.
Tickets start from as little as 25 euros, but for those who are after a night of pampering the platinium VIP tickets at 150 euros will provide guests with VIP parking, optimal seating, free gifts, VIP treatment and the opportunity to meet and greet Antonello Venditti in person.
