The concerts are back in Palermo. The music is claiming a place in the city after two years of silence and empty stands due to the pandemic. A great comeback considering the Maneskins are likely to take the stage.

If all goes as planned, the rock band of the moment will perform at the Ippodromo della Favorita in July, probably on the 11th. The date is not yet official, but the green light for a summer festival with six dates and key artists could arrive in the middle of next week. The organizers of the Riccione Moon festival will be in town to work out the details of the event which would transform the Hippodrome into a large open-air theatre.

To play, among others, in addition to Maneskin, there would also be Jovanotti, Max Pezzali, Blanco and Sangiovanni.

Palermo is therefore preparing to welcome the great artists, almost three years after the Radio Italia concert at the Foro Italico which in 2019 led Mika and Achille Lauro to perform among others. All eyes will certainly be on Jovanotti, who has not stopped in Sicily since 2013 and who will return to the beaches next summer with the Jova beach party, but especially on the Maneskin.

The Roman group is living a golden moment. After selling two million singles, they also returned to the United States as guests on the popular show Saturday Night Live. Damiano, Victoria, Thomas and Ethan performed at iHeartRadio ALTer Ego 2022 in Los Angeles, line-up with Coldplay, Kings of Leon, Twenty One Pilots and Imagine Dragons, and just announced at Coachella, (Indio, Calif. , April 17 and 24, 2022), the first Italian rock band to play at the iconic festival, on view with the most important international artists such as Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Ye, Swedish House Mafia. An exceptional success in the United States, which began last fall with two live specials in New York and Los Angeles and the presence as a special guest at the Rolling Stones concert in Las Vegas.

With 6 diamond, 133 platinum and 34 gold records worldwide and almost 4 billion streams on all digital platforms, the Måneskin are the most listened to Italians in the world on Spotify in 2021, a year that has seen them seen protagonists of many successes. from first place at the 71st Sanremo Festival and Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Zitti e buona” (five platinum discs, contained in the album “Teatro d’Ira – Vol. I”) to the prize “Best Rock” at the MTV Emas, the first victory for an Italian artist in an international category, the double nomination at the Brit Awards as “International Group” and “International Song” and the inclusion of “I wanna be your slave” (triple platinum) in the BBC’s “Top 10 Tracks of 2021”.
