“De André canta De André – Best of Live Tour” is the new exciting concert marking the return of Cristiano De André, the sole heir to the musical legacy of his father, Fabrizio De André. Twenty-five years after Faber’s passing, Cristiano pays tribute to his father’s immense repertoire.

Accompanied by an exceptional band featuring Osvaldo di Dio on guitars, Davide Pezzin on bass, Luciano Luisi on keyboards, and Ivano Zanotti on drums, Cristiano De André brings his father’s still relevant and beloved songs to the main summer stages in Italy. The only date in Friuli Venezia Giulia is set for Friday, September 6th, at the Arena Alpe Adria in Lignano Sabbiadoro, promising one of the most touching concerts of the summer.

The tour, starting on July 13th in Termoli, adds a new chapter to the “De André canta De André” project, following the success of the four albums already released. This “Best Of Live Tour” represents an extraordinary milestone, blending past and present with a contemporary touch. Cristiano De André will perform the songs playing acoustic and classical guitar, bouzouki, piano, and violin, offering a show that celebrates the greatness of Fabrizio’s work.
