Both concerts were sold out at the San Siro stadium in Milan, a “special” venue, where on Tuesday evening, July 11, the Bergamo band started their 2023 stadium tour, after the zero date in Venice. Over two hours of live broadcasts and 23 songs in front of 60,000 spectators, the show kicked off with a voice-over announcing a “minor inconvenience” and informing the audience that the concert had been “cancelled”.
Nothing but “Fake News” (this is the title of the group’s latest album) and a few moments later, Riccardo, Elio, Nicola, Simon, Matteo and Lorenzo appear with “Zen”. After some of their most iconic songs like Giovani Wannabe and Tetris, the Tactical Nuclear Penguins brought a tattoo artist to the stage who teased the title of the next song, Hold On, on a fan’s arm. alla nostra città », and other famous songs such as Coca Zero, No No and Ricordi, as well as three songs (Scatole, Giulia and Cena di Classe) performed aloud with the band members sitting around a table. Irene’s song “About Fear of the Future” was for “all the precarious workers”, while “Dentista Croatia” was the song that “when we wrote it we thought nobody would understand”.
Medley’s song with Scooby Doo, Verdura, and Fede was expected of Freddie’s song: “They asked us how political we were,” Elio said. We have always preferred answers made out of songs. We will be here and in every part of the world singing everyone’s right to love and self-fulfillment.”
At the end of the show, leader Riccardo Zanotti declared “il bu bu Settetete dei grandi” and that “when they say it’s the last song, but … we’ll do it too”. After Ringo Starr and Scrivile Scemo, the tactical nuclear penguins greeted the audience with the famous song “Pastello Bianco”.
