Marco Mengoni Resumes L’Essenziale Tour in Italy

Just returned from Malmö after his great success at the Eurovision Song Contest where he achieved the 7th position for Italy, Marco Mengoni continues promoting his latest album #PRONTOACORRERE. Seeing the high number of tickets sold he has recently announced additional dates to please all his fans.

To Marco Mengoni, this is being a year full of success. After representing Italy at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest where he achieved the seventh position becoming the only performer from a Big 5 country to get into the top 15, his concert tour which is taking him all around his home country is in now full swing.

In Italy, an average of 1,878,000 people watched the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday night with a market share of 9.17%. Compared to last year when an average of 1,410,000 people watched the show it means that Marco managed to bring 468,000 extra viewers, something that was expected since he has become one of the most popular artists in Italy.

His song Pronto A Correre is playing on almost all the radio stations and his album continues in the high positions of the sales charts. To cope with the continuing demand for tickets after the first triumphal shows in Milan, Turin and Genoa, the winner of the Sanremo Festival has now announced some new dates of L’Essenziale Tour where he presents his latest album which came out last March entitled #PRONTOACORRERE which features fifteen new songs including his Eurovision entry.

On stage alongside Marco there will be some extraordinary musicians such as Luca Colombo, musical director; Gianluca Ballarin and Andrea Pollio playing keyboards; Giovanni Pallotti on bass, Peter Crow on guitar and David Sollazzi as drummer.
