Music Hall Events recently announced that Italian singer-songwriter Zucchero will be playing a full-scale concert at the MFCC Open Air Grounds in Ta’ Qali on Saturday 5 August. As part of his Black Cat World Tour 2017, the singer will be performing songs from his 2016 album, Black Cat, as well as some of his iconic classics, including ‘X colpa di chi?’, ‘Diavolo in me’, ‘Baila (Sexy Thing)’, and ‘Il volo’.

Zucchero, who was last in Malta for a full-scale concert during his Chocabeck World Tour in 2011, has become renowned around the world as the ‘father of Italian blues’. And with good reason, too, as over the past three decades, he has sold over 60 million records and won a vast number of awards, including two World Music Awards, six IFPI Europe Platinum Awards, four Festivalbar Awards, nine Wind Music Awards, and even a Grammy Award nomination.

The Malta concert is taking place after Zucchero’svery successful world tour, during which he has played 120 concerts over 12 months, including two sold-out shows at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London and 21 shows at the Arena di Verona – a record for the location within a tour.
