THE RYDGES POST
I have to get out more.
How come I hadn’t heard of an international superstar who has released 11 studio albums, one EP, three compilation albums, three live albums and 37 singles, selling more than 55 million records in a 29 year career?
Probably because I don’t speak Italian or Spanish.
Eros Luciano Walter Ramazzotti is one of the world most popular entertainers – he was born in Italy and is fluent in Spanish as well as Italian (he records in both languages) – and he has also recorded duets with the likes of Ricky Martin, Joe Cocker, Cher, Tina Turner, Andrea Bocelli, Anastacia and Luciano Pavarotti.
Naturally, Eros has a huge following in multi-cultural countries like Australia, which explains why he is playing the large arenas.
Here are the dates and venues:
Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne – Friday, November 15
Brisbane Convention Centre – Sunday, November 17
Sydney Entertainment Centre – Wednesday, November 20
Challenge Stadium, Perth – Saturday, November 23
For anyone else unfamiliar (or indeed fans) below is a link to one of Eros’s hits, Parla Con Me (Talk With Me)
