The first of two nights in beautiful, possibly wet – a little rain won’t dampen your spirits, I’m sure – Italy.
During 2006’s On an Island Tour, you might remember that the band visited Venice and Florence. This time, instead of Venice, it’s a return to another extraordinary place where David performed with Pink Floyd for three nights back in May 1989: the magnificent Arena di Verona.
This vast first-century Roman amphitheatre is Italy’s third largest and one of the best preserved. Not surprisingly, operatic performances are most popular here with the annual Arena di Verona Opera Festival taking place throughout the summer months. The acoustics are said to be most impressive.
We look forward to hearing from you if you are fortunate enough to be witnessing tonight’s concert from this exquisite setting. Let’s hope the rain holds off.
Should we anticipate any changes to the setlist, do you think?
