Marking almost five decades of musical success in Brazil, one of the country’s most famous albums comes to Europe
Forty-seven years after the original release of the double album Clube da Esquina, Milton Nascimento’s musical masterful collaboration with Lô Borges, lands on European sands to celebrate one of MPB’s most ambitious projects.
“The tour marks a special moment for Brazilians living in Europe,” according to Backstage Production director Cristiane Guimarães. “The album is one of the classics from the 70s. The lyrics and melodies translate the history of Brazil through music”, she added.
Milton’s tour, under the same name as the original album, will guarantee unforgettable performances for fans of all ages, since Bituca, as Milton is known, is one of those voices that transcend generations.
The Project not only guarantees emotion but a carefully selected playlist, which is sure to includes Clube da Esquina, Paisaje do Janela, Maria, Maria, Nada Que Como Antes, among other great tracks.
For the singer, traveling at this time with the tour is a source of great happiness. At the ripe age of 76, the artist from Minas Gerais does exactly what his lyrics advocate in his hit Nos Bailes da Vida: he goes where the people are. Milton has won four Grammys and has made countless “best of” lists in leading musical publications such as “Down Beat” and “Billboard”.
The Clube da Esquina tour will tell a story 47 years in the making and includes stops in Porto, Lisbon, Paris, Madrid, Hamburg, Zurich, Amsterdam, Dublin and, of course, London.
