Vasco Rossi in Milan, long queues at the gates for the «Non stop live tour 2022». Almost an hour of downpour and you run away on the Maura trail in search of shelter from the rain: “I’ll arrive and the clear sky returns.” On stage, before Blasco, the band The Rumpled and the singer-songwriter Michele Cristoforetti

Before: a black sky that discharges storm, rain and wind, ran under the gazebos, makeshift shelters, general stampede and blocked turnstiles, a lash of bad weather, 30-40 minutes of buckets of watera brief and deceptive respite, and then again the storm to ruin the San Siro, hail included, a good ten minutes. After: dry skies and a technicolor rainbow. The weather alert is not rock. Vasco is there. And he swept the clouds away from the Milan Hippodrome: «I’ll arrive and the calm returns», he smiles ironically as soon as he arrives in the concert area aboard his van. The gang of him is a stream that has swelled by the hour waiting for the Komandante in the field (and on the mud). Thousands of fans under the stage already at noon, bathing suits, bandanas and shouts of ecstasy: “You are a legend!”. Stadium-like climate, a stone’s throw from the Meazza. It’s a big Tuesday, water is part of the game. «This enormous affection that still reaches me today after 40 years – is Vasco’s reply – still leaves me amazed. And you can see that I sowed well ». Now down with the show. Eighty thousand voices plus one: that of Blasco. Here he is on stage: glasses, black hat, burgundy biker jacket, black trousers and t-shirt. «We are alive and clear, finally Milan!», The debut (as in Trento).

Vasco’s people

Vasco Rossi makes a stop in Milan with his “Non Stop Live 2022” on the Maura del trot track at San Siro (here the guide and useful information). On the pratone there is a people that unites four generations, from ten to seventy years old, very young people and families, groups of friends and historical lovers (for many here Vasco is the other half of a marriage). In the background a maxi-gallery («His majesty of him», Blasco defines it) as high as a nine-storey building (design Giò Forma) and five maxi screens to relaunch the image of the king of Italian rock. «Megaparty in Milan, sold out concert for 80 thousand. On with the party, on with the music», The message of the maestro from Zocca on Instagram:« The San Siro stadium will be jealous … ». Then a second post: “Milanoooo there are ooooo in 80 thousand”.

The wait for the show

Long queues at the gates from five in the afternoon. Noisy siege of the turnstiles. Disruption under the storm, but no one has left the position. Want to sing in choir. And dialects from half of Italy: Lombard, Venetian and Piedmontese above all. Via Ippodromo and via Montale blocked by traffic. Waiting for the show with improvised karaoke: «Albachiara» and «It’s just us». If in Trento there were only the tokens for the bar, here you can see the street vendors again. A kiosk sells Vasco goggles. When the Komandante attacks his “XI commandment”, at 9 pm, there will be 80,000 at the Hippodrome. To warm up the audience, the band The Rumpled and the singer-songwriter Michele Cristoforetti.

The songs in the lineup

There are 28 songs in the lineup (but there could be an extra surprise), from Vasco’s great classics to the most recent songs. Following the setlist of the show (with a bang) in Trento on Friday 20 May, where the rocker from Zocca retraced the best of his repertoire, the marathon should open with «XI Commandment» to get to an encore on «Albachiara».

10) Love love
11) Interlude 2022

16) We are alone
17) A love song thrown away
18) I’ll cut your throat
19) Rewind
20) Disappointed
21) Eh … yeah
22) We are here
23) Close upsets of the third type
