THEmola is preparing to become the capital of grunge-rock music for a day. On Saturday 25 June, the Enzo and Dino Ferrari racetrack will be the scene of the concert of the Pearl Jam, the Seattle band led by frontman Eddie Vedder. The only Italian stop of the band, considered among the groups that, together with Nirvana and Alice in Chains, have defined rock-grunge music, a musical genre born in the early nineties around the American city of Seattle.
With their style influenced by seventies rock and punk, they have given life to numerous songs that have become part of the history of music, from powerful songs to the most intimate and romantic ballads (Alive, Even Flow, Better Man, Once, Rearviewmirror and many others).
The Italian concert in Imola will be an opportunity to find this band live after the 2018 Italian tour. On stage, together with Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready’s lead guitar, Jeff Ament’s bass, Stone Gossard’s rhythm guitar and Matt Cameron on drums.
All’Enzo and Dino Ferrari, for Pearl Jam, between 55 thousand and 60 thousand fans are expected, who will attend the concert from the paddock. The Rivazza will remain closed and there will be a single entrance from Viale Dante. The stage, on which the technicians have been working for a few weeks, was mounted on the opposite side from the position in which it was located for the Vasco concert last May 28, near the new medical center, as happened in 2016 when Laura Pausini he exhibited in Imola for the zero date of his tour. The Pixies will open the Pearl Jam concertthe American band led by Black Francis, authors of the hit Where is my mind.
