Edoardo Bennato

Two hours of music, engaging videos and audience interaction for an event to be experienced from start to finish

Edoardo Bennato – the storyteller who has been immortalising today’s world with his songs for forty years – will perform a rock and blues concert in Nervi, offering his most famous songs and a selection of new songs from his latest album: Non c’è. Two hours of music, engaging videos and audience interaction for an event to be experienced from start to finish. An emotional experience with songs and melodies that have become part of our collective imagination that will be hard to resist; to rediscover, through the power of music, vibrations and emotions that are good for the soul. Joining him on stage will be the BeBand, his long-standing band.

Edoardo Bennato, musician and songwriter, was born in Bagnoli, on the outskirts of Naples. After a musical experience in London, he started performing as a one-man-band playing guitar, kazoo and pedal drum simultaneously, producing his own original musical trend directly influenced by blues and rock greats and contaminated by accents from Mediterranean music. His debut album was Non farti cadere le braccia (Don’t let your arms fall off), released in 1973; in 1977 with the album Burattino senza fili he became the first Italian artist to make video-clips and later, thanks to a triumphant tour around Italy, he became the first national singer to score 80,000 spectators in the famous San Siro stadium in Milan; an event that led him to cross the Italian borders with his first European tour. Among the countless hits was the official song of the 1990 World Cup, Un’estate italiana, sung together with Gianna Nannini. In 2007, he signed the soundtrack to the theatrical musical Peter Pan in the Italian version; an incredible success with the public and critics that led the singer-songwriter to produce an English version of the famous songs from the album Sono solo canzonette. In 2010, two record works were released: the completely unreleased LP Le vie del rock sono infinite and MTV Storytellers, a collection of the best-known hits as well as new songs rearranged and sung together with artists such as Morgan, Roy Paci, Giuliano Palma & The Bluebeaters, and Finley. At the end of October 2015, Pronti a salpare was released. The album’s title track won the Amnesty International award in 2016. Today, with 28 albums under his belt, Edoardo Bennato is still in the midst of a creative phase. In 2020, at the height of the lockdown, he and his brother Eugenio produced the song La realtà non può essere questa, the proceeds of which went entirely to the Azienda Ospedaliera dei Colli di Napoli. That same year, in November, his latest album Non c’è was released: eight unreleased tracks and fourteen repertoire songs.
In 2023, on the cover night of the 73rd Sanremo Festival, Edoardo Bennato performed together with Leo Gassmann in a medley of his songs that included A cosa serve la guerra, L’isola che non c’è and Il Rock del Capitano Uncino.
