After hitting the stages of Pesaro, Turin, Bologna, Florence, Naples, Bari, Milan and Rome for the Italy tour 2023, split by stops in several European cities, Måneskin return with 5 new summer dates.
Måneskin, new dates for Italy tour 2023
The concert on 16 July 2023 is kicking off the hot season in Trieste, North-East Italy’s cosmopolitan and Mitteleuropean city. Nereo Rocco Municipal Stadium, the city’s main venue and the first in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, will accommodate 26,566 spectators.
On 20 and 21 July, Rome will host the concerts at the Stadio Olimpico, a multi-functional sports facility in the Foro Italico complex. The Roman band Måneskin will perform in their hometown at the Olympic Stadium, which boasts a capacity of 72,698 seats.
Finally, before continuing with autumn dates in Europe and overseas, the most famous rock band of the moment will make a 24-25 July stop at Milan’s Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, also known as San Siro because of the district in which it stands. With its 75,817 seats, it is the largest in Italy. Moreover, due to the prestige of the international and sporting and other events it hosts, it can boast the title of “La Scala del Calcio” (like the renowned Milanese opera house).
Måneskin, the rock band from Rome
The Italian band, whose members are all from Rome, will enliven and inflame an already hot summer like never before. The rock band, one of the most popular and listened to of the moment, is only 7 years old but has many successes behind it.
They are Damiano David (vocals), Victoria De Angelis (bass), Thomas Raggi (guitar) and Ethan Torchio (drums). Måneskin, in Danish – the native language of Victoria’s mother – means moonlight.
Born in 2016, Måneskin did not take long to dominate the Italian music scene. Their second place in X Factor is their springboard to fame. From their street performances in Via del Corso, where so many artists are used to performing, their character and nature already emerge.
Still under 18 at the time, the 4 Roman musicians have not forgotten their origins. The coins received from passers-by and curious tourists, full of admiration for their undeniable talent, were used to finance their first single, Chosen.
In 2018, they launched their first album Il ballo della vita, flying the group from the Roman reality to a national scale. They start concerts all over Italy, in a tour that registers a sold-out for every date. The second album was released in 2021, the same year they achieved incredible fame by winning the 71st edition of Sanremo Music Festival and the 65th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.
This triumph earned them a prominent role on the international music scene. They have received recognitions like the American Music Award, Billboard Music Award, MTV Europe Music Award and MTV Video Music Award among others.
