Zucchero World Wild Tour

October 3 @ 4:00 am - 6:00 pm

Zucchero wraps up World Wild Tour in Tucson at Fox Theater on October 2nd, 2022

Following an epic concert opening for legendary rock band the Rolling Stones, Italian music icon Zucchero is set to bring his World Wild Tour 2022 to fans across North America this Fall! U.S. tour dates will open on September 9, 2022, with a show in Atlantic City NJ at the Hard Rock Casino and wrap up on October 2, 2022, in Tucson AZ at the Fox Theater. View Zucchero’s full tour schedule here.

Zucchero opened for the legendary rock band the Rolling Stones for the second time in his career this past week at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. His performance with the Stones marked a climactic finale to the Italian music star’s seven-concert slew of dates across Germany, which attracted 35,000 visitors.

“I was honored and grateful to the Stones for choosing me a second time to
open one of their shows, this time in Gelsenkirchen,” Zucchero explained, “another important
step in my journey. Another great story to tell my grandchildren. Long live the Stones!”

Following two years of restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Zucchero’s “World Wild Tour” kicked off on 18 April in Glasgow, UK, followed by two sold-out concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Fourteen subsequent concerts in Italy, held at the Arena in Verona, attracted more than 150,000people from Italy and other countries.

Zucchero will perform all over the world until October. Featuring more than two hours of music and a constantly changing set, Zucchero makes every show a unique and unforgettable experience. He can be expected to revive some of his greatest hits, but also plans to play songs from his newer albums such as “Discover” and “D.O.C.”.

Accompanied on stage by an exceptionally talented supergroup, ever-evolving set full of highlights, Zucchero takes his audience on a journey through his entire career, with the energy and momentum of the hits that helped write the history of Italian music. A wonderful stage set
provides the perfect backdrop for this fantastic show: a gigantic sun heralding rebirth, with
a selection of images inside representing Zucchero’s entire musical journey.

In 2004, Zucchero played at the Royal Albert Hall with Pavarotti, Clapton, Brian May, Solomon Burke, Dolores O’ Riordan, and others. In 2007 he was nominated for a Grammy, with Billy Preston and Clapton, for best R&B Traditional Vocal Collaboration.

He has collaborated with such artists as Sting, Bono, Eric Clapton, Peter Gabriel, Mark Knopfler, Queen, Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, Ray Charles, Miles Davis, B.B. King, John Lee Hooker, Jeff Beck, Tom Jones, Elvis Costello, Joe Cocker, Bryan Adams, Johnny Hallyday, Sheryl Crow, Manà, Dolores O’Riordan, Hotei and others.
