Italy: Verona

David and the band are delighted to return to the magnificent Arena di Verona tonight for the first of two concerts after a hugely enjoyable show there last year.

One of the best preserved Roman amphitheatres, the Arena hosts the annual Arena di Verona Opera Festival which is currently underway and will, until 28th August, continue with its busy schedule of opera and ballet performances. (I think the old place deserves a couple of nights off to rock, don’t you?)

We’d love to hear from you if you will be there, especially if you went last September and are wondering how the new band will sound. Maybe you were even there in May 1989 for Pink Floyd. Do let us know.

Please, please don’t forget that tonight’s concert will start at 22:00, not 21:00. Gates will open at 20:00. There is no change to Monday’s start time, which is 21:00, with gates opening at 19:00.
