About Vasco Rossi

One of Italy’s biggest rock stars of all time, Vasco Rossi is a hard-partying provocateur who’s been filling stadiums since the ’80s.

∙ Encouraged by his friend Gaetano Curreri (who later joined the rock band Stadio), Rossi debuted in the late ’70s and gained notoriety performing on the TV show Domenica In.
Bollicine, his 1983 LP, was named the No. 1 Italian album of all time by Rolling Stone Italia.
∙ The 1987 album C’è chi dice no was the first of nine Vasco Rossi studio albums that reached No. 1 on the Italian charts.
∙ He’s sold more than 30 million albums in his career, logging his first million seller with 1993’s Gli Spari Sopra, which went Platinum 10 times over.
∙ With “Siamo Soli”—a song from 2001’s acclaimed Stupido Hotel—he won the famed Italian summertime song competition Festivalbar for the third time.
∙ Setting a record for the highest-attended single-artist ticketed event of all time, he performed for over 225,000 people at the Modena Park 2017 concert held in honor of his 40-year music career.
