Translation of this live blog of the concert:
21:38 Let the show begin. An extended stage and a square runway ahead. A simple stage, essential, as he told Sorrisi. We’ll see what happens. It starts off with a heartbeat and a light on the center stage. Descending from the sky is a cube that should contain only him. Once he’s down, he sings “L’amore è una cosa semplice”.
21:45 It’s time for “La differenza tra me e te”, behind a curtain circuits come into sight. His voice is in great shape. Today’s he’s dressed with a jacket and jeans. Three huge screens are placed around the stage. “Look, I’ve really come to like returning here so soon, Turin is the best city to begin the tour.”
21:50 “Hai delle isole negli occhi” is the third song offered. The audience is already wild. A super romantic moment in “Troppo buono”, touching interpretation. Live it already sounds much more profound. Unlike the last tour, the presence of the band is much stronger, massive.
21:59 He arrives on the runway, the first hit song from the past. He begins with “Imbranato”. Tiziano on stage has a very strong vocal control. He seems really tranquil. More than we’ve seen in the past. “Indietro” is the song that refreshes the romantic moment. “You know this one?” The audience responds euphorically.
22:08 He sits down on a stool and sings “L’ultima notte al mondo” with a backdrop of mountains that recapture the theme of the video. Afterwards a dedication in which he recalls the tenth anniversary of his first concert here in Turin. “E fuori è buio” is now dedicated to those fans who’ve followed him for so long.
22:17 Could he really by any chance omit “Sere nere”? The stage is literally flooded with LED. It’s a really beautiful effect. The audience is delirious. He appears from under the stage with a wonderful intro graphic, singing “Stop! Dimentica” wearing a black jacket coated in glitter. He continues the eventful interlude with “Xverso”. Great energy.
22:32 Now he sings “E Raffaella è mia”, while in the background old clips are shown of the Italian and Spanish show girl icon. Excellent performance. His jacket is glistening. Now a clip in the background tells of his history. Festivalbar, Carramba, Laura Pausini, Pippo Baude, it’s really the entire course of his career. In a pre-recorded message he recalls his emotions. We won’t spoil it.
22:36 “Il regalo più grande” is the song that brings Tiziano back on stage. “Alla mia età” follows close behind, he sings it with a completely new emotion, it’s difficult to put it in words. We believe that there’s always something new to tell in these timeless songs.
22:44 Carrying a disco ball in his hands, he introduces the song “Il sole esiste per tutti”. We’re really into the heart of the show, great intensity. In its theatrical simplicity. A lot of music, few distractions. Now we reach the announced jazz phase. Tiziano wears a hat. This interlude starts off with “TVM”. He sings masterfully, with an ironic and dramatic attitude, “Quiero vivir con vos”.
22:54 A real surprise is “L’olimpiade” as a jazz version, with a lot of bass. The concert continues with “Ed ero contentissimo”. He seems to be truly happy. However, it’s the first date, it’s not always easy to gauge. Now he sings “Ti voglio bene”, one of the most beautiful songs in his repertoire. For now it’s the most thrilling song on the setlist.
23:08 Here’s the moment of dance that we were expecting. Very good, he’s dressed in hip hop style, actually with a sweatshirt and baseball cap and baggy pants. And he dances. His voice softens. Bravo, what a surprise. A nice act of courage for an artist who now has a much different image compared to his beginnings. Now he sings “Rosso relativo”.
23:16 Now he sings “Non me lo so spiegare”, the informal look continues. There are very few moments where he’s framed on the huge screens, complete focus is on the artist. Excellent. He promises that this is the last song, but is it really? Surely this is the false exit, before he returns to the stage. Maybe.
23:23 “Per dirti ciao!” is the first song of the closing performance of the singer. He sings and runs across the runway to greet his audience. On his shirt “Torino” is printed. “We’re all very thrilled, coming together here for the first time. What’s important for me was the joy to be here.” He closes the concert singing “Ti scatterò una foto”, anticipating the a cappella singing of the audience.
23:33 The concert ends. He says he loves us very much, but doesn’t leave before “La fine”, the Nesli cover. The song is one of the most felt by the audience, they know it all by heart despite being an album track. Excellent ending. He kneels down and kisses the stage. It’s really the end.
