It will be Matt Owlthe young Italian artist who came to the attention of the YouTube audience with his acoustic interpretations of famous songs, to open the three Italian dates of Blue: 21 November at Alcatraz in Milan, 22 at Atlantico Live in Rome and 23 at the Supersonic Music Arena in San Biagio di Callalta, in the province of Treviso.

Matt Owl, born Matteo Bronzattiwas born in Milan on 29 September 1991. From an early age, he has always shown a passion for music passed on to him by his father, a great rock music fan. After graduating, he dedicated himself completely to his musical studies, including the study of guitar and singing, followed by vocal coach Eloisa Francia. His versions of songs by well-known artists such as "Summer Paradise" of the Simple Plan, "What Makes You Beautiful" of the One Direction e "Boyfriend"of Justin Bieber have gained thousands of views on YouTube; to his credit, Matt also has several unreleased tracks in Italian ready.         

The three new Italian dates of Blue follow the two sell-outs last June. Blue, with over fifteen million copies sold and three chart-topping albums worldwide ("All Rise", "One Love", "Guilty"), having played live all over the world and duetted with the likes of Elton John and Stevie Wonder, thirteen years after their debut they are a band that can count on solid artistic experience and an equally solid friendship between its four members: Lee Ryan, Antony Costa, Duncan James e Simon Webbe. After a period of hiatus, 2013 marked the band's return with 'Roulette"released in Italy on 1 February (on the Universal), an album that in 13 tracks - 15 for the deluxe edition - best expresses who Blue are today. As already the album, anticipated by the single "Hurt Lovers'which was followed by "Without You', the stage also shows that the former boyband, born in the late 1990s, has been able to keep intact the trademark that brought them worldwide success, becoming a great band made up of charismatic performers and excellent composers of pop songs destined to strike at first listen.
