One of the most iconic Italian singers, Eros Ramazzotti will perform in Belgrade’s Stark Arena on September 24th this year. Ramazzotti began his world tour in February with a concert in Munich and he will perform in all five continents.
Since 1984, Ramazzotti has released 11 studio albums, one EP, three compilation albums, three live albums, and 37 singles. He has sold over 60 million records in his 30-year career. His repertoire includes duets with artists such as Cher, Tina Turner, Andrea Bocelli, Patsy Kensit, Anastacia, Joe Cocker, Julio Iglesias, Lynn Davis, Ricardo Arjona, Luciano Pavarotti, Laura Pausini, Nicole Scherzinger and Ricky Martin.
In 1985, Ramazzotti took part in the Sanremo Festival again with the song “Una storia importante” (An Important Story), taken from his debut album Cuori Agitati (Troubled Hearts). While only placing sixth at the festival, “Una Storia Importante” was released as a single and became a huge hit in many European countries, including France where it sold a million units.
His second album Nuovi Eroi (New Heroes), released in 1986, earned two Platinum-awards in Switzerland with over 100,000 sales, and Gold status in Germany with over 250,000 sales. At his second Sanremo Festival appearance in 1986 his memorable single, “Adesso Tu” (Now You) from Nuovi eroi won the overall competition.
Ramazzotti first gained wide international success in 1993, with the release of Tutte Storie, which amassed five million album sales and occupied the top five in every country where he had previously released albums.
His audience appeal comes from several factors, including his unique voice, which can be described as a somewhat nasal but nevertheless forceful and resonant baritone, and his energetic delivery of catchy, melodic tunes which are often passionate mid-tempo autobiographical ballads, with instrumentation that is rich in soft-rock influence
During his 25-year-long career, Eros Ramazzotti sold over 55 million records.
