ROME – Record live performances in Rome. With 56,000 spectators for Max Pezzali’s only outdoor concert in 2023 at the Circus Maximus, the summer concert season in Rome has come to an end. Many guests, such as Paola and Chiara, Lazza and Article 31, also took part in the party of the former voice of 883. An event that can be seen again in prime time on Channel 5 on September 7 and which celebrates Rome as the capital of concerts in 2023 .
“This year we can reach 3 million tickets sold,” Alessandro Onorato, advisor for major events, tourism, fashion and sports, the capital of Rome, said in a social media post. A record that surpassed “even the wildest expectations” of the season. “In 2022, we sold more than 2 million tickets, 500,000 more than Milan,” wrote Honorato, “and again became the first Italian city. This hasn’t happened in 11 years.” I work not only with artists and staff, but also with thousands of operators in the field of tourism, transport and personal services in the capital. All this created “a huge boost to the Roman economy by attracting tourists from all over the world,” continues Council Commissioner Gualtieri, “returning the capital of Italy to an unthinkable level in such a short time.”
The main events of the capital: from Bruce Springsteen to Max Pezzali
The Max Pezzali event was just the latest of many events in the capital. The starting tape of the summer concert season in Rome was interrupted by a sold-out concert by Bruce Springsteen on May 21 last year at the Circus Maximus. After 60,000 Boss spectators, the ancient arena hosted other artists from around the world such as Imagine Dragons and Texas rapper Travis Scott’s one-of-a-kind concert in the world. The Circus Maximus also hosted a dedication to Marco Mengoni after winning the Sanremo Festival with Two Lives. The Roman summer has continued, and important performances are scattered throughout the other venues of the Capitol, from the Hippodrome of Capannelle to the Parco della Musica Auditorium and the Olympic Stadium, attracting sold-out crowds one after another.
