Saturday 10 September is the date set for the only major concert to be held by Luciano Ligabue in 2005. The venue for the event is the Campovolo in Reggio Emilia. There are many ideas that the artist and organisers (his manager Claudio Maioli for Riservarossa, together with Ferdinando Salzano for Friends&Partners and Claudio Trotta for Barley Arts): the event promises to be the biggest production effort ever made by Ligabue's team.

The ticket price is 30 euro + prev. dir. The pre-sale will start on Wednesday 4 May simultaneously on and in the sales outlets of the various circuits (Ticketone, Green Ticket Bolzano, Box Office Toscana, Box Office Verona, Teleart Mestre, Box Office Genova/Torino/Roma/Bari/Napoli/Milano, Amit, Unicredit, Box Office Catania, Box Office Cagliari).
The complete list of pre-sales, including 380 Ticketone outlets, can be found at (official event website, online from tomorrow 28 April).

The month of September 2005 will see Ligabue in the limelight twice: After the event on 10 September, in fact, his highly anticipated seventh unreleased album will be released (three and a half years after the release of 'Fuori come va?'). From the first rumours leaked from the recording studio, where the artist has been working since the beginning of January, there is talk of an album that will contain about ten songs with a strong rock matrix, with music and lyrics that encapsulate the visceral Ligabue of always and the mature Ligabue of today.

Ligabue's new album of unreleased tracks will be the eleventh in his discography, after six studio albums; two live albums, one from the stadium tour (in the last one alone he totalled 650,000 paying spectators) and one from the theatre tour; a soundtrack and a collection of 'scattered splinters'. But the artistic career of the Emilian rocker, who boasts several sales records and a shower of prizes and awards, is not only characterised by successful records and tours. It is also characterised by books and films that Ligabue has written to great public and critical acclaim (the collection of short stories 'Fuori e dentro il borgo' and the novel 'La neve se ne frega'; 'Radiofreccia', now a cult-movie, and the other film 'Da zero a dieci').
