– ALGHERO, AUGUST 18 – The music doesn’t stop. After the controversy over Salmo’s surprise and unauthorized concert, Francesco De Gregori landed in Sardinia, for two dates in Alghero. In recent days, the Roman singer-songwriter had had his say defending the “provocation” of the rapper from Olbia.

At the rugby arena, in front of just under a thousand people, all equipped with green passes and goggles, at 9.30 pm precisely De Gregori takes the stage.

Solo, with guitar and harmonica. The lineup opens with Cose and after a brief greeting, the Roman singer-songwriter tells the story of his beginnings, when he went far and wide only with a guitar and a harmonica.

“I played as the shoulder of a rock group to which the audience threw everything on stage. I was paid to do 3.4 songs and my manager at the time told me that if I liked I could also go on, but I never got to do the fourth piece “, says a strangely talkative De Gregori and immediately in tune with his audience.

And so, after three songs, he gets the band on stage that will accompany him for almost two hours of emotions with his most beautiful songs of his 50-year career.

In his “De Gregori & Band Live – The Greatest Hits” the 70-year-old artist who is still in great shape is accompanied on stage by Guido Guglielminetti (bass and double bass), Carlo Gaudiello (keyboards), Paolo Giovenchi (guitars), Alessandro Valle (pedal steel guitar and mandolin), Primiano Di Biase (hammond) and Simone Talone (percussion) The great classics arrive in the middle of the lineup. One after the other, we start with Alice, sung by the whole audience, then Blood on blood, General, we are the Story, Rimmel, Buonanotte fiorellino, the football Leva of the 1968 class and the inevitable Donna cannon who brings down the curtain before the encore and the grand finale with Viva Italia. And tonight we repeat. (HANDLE).
