8th March 2020 – Eventim Apollo in London
Forty years after its release, “Sotto il Segno dei Pesci” is still able to bring together different and apparently distant generations under the same constellation: this is demonstrated by the extraordinary success of its celebration tour, which has reached sold-out shows in of Italy over the past year and continues with the same success even in its summer leg.
Thanks to an unmissable lineup and set-up: accompanied by his historical band on stage, Antonello Venditti re-proposes the songs of a record that has forever marked the course of Italian music, in addition to the most beloved songs of his repertoire, such as Giulio Cesare, Ci Vorrebbe un Amico, Roma Capoccia, Notte Prima degli Esami, Amici Mai, Grazie Roma, Benvenuti in Paradiso and many others.
In 1978, the year of its publication, SOTTO IL SEGNO DE PESCI had a strong impact on the country, both musically and culturally. Among very strong and current themes never before tackled so explicitly in a song (as in Sara, or Giulia), songs with very modern and revolutionary arrangements (such as Sotto il Segno dei Pesci, which still today is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the new italian-pop songwriters) and tracks that are a precious testimony of the 70s music scene (like Francesco, dedicated to his friend and collegue Francesco De Gregori), the album managed to make its way into the Italian heart and imagination.
While the summer tour continues throughout Italy, crowning the celebrations for the 40th anniversary of Sotto il Segno dei Pesci, Antonello Venditti announces two new special dates: November 30th, 2019 at the Assago Forum (Milan), and on March 8th, 2020 at the Eventim Apollo in London.
