November 2: Prince.
November 10: Sting.
These are the forecoming key dates for pop music lovers here in Rome. After U2’s concert in early October, two big music icons will perform in Rome this fall. After eight years, Prince heads back to Italy with his 20Ten Tour. 20Ten is his last album and the genius from Minneapolis will play both his classics and the songs from his last work. Songwriter, guitarist, actor, director and producer, Prince was very popular especially in the eighties and nineties. His music is a grand mix of funk, classic rock and pop. The concert will be held on November 2 at 9 pm in Palalottomatica in Piazzale dello Sport. You can buy your online tickets here.
Music legend Sting, instead, will perform at the Auditorium Parco della Musica and as an additional musical treat, the concert will be accompanied by the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. Sting is one of the few musicians who was able to find success with a band and as a solo artist, constantly producing a varied composition of music. Some of the songs he will play are: Roxanne, Next To You, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, Every Breath You Take, Englishman in New York, Fragile, Russians, If I Ever Lose My Faith in You, Fields of Gold and Desert Rose. Sting will play with a quartet composed by guitarist Dominic Miller, drummer David Cossin, singer Jo Lawry and bass Ira Coleman. His Symphonicity Concert will take place on November 10 at Parco della Musica, in 30 Via Pietro de Coubertin. Tickets on sale here.
