This decision is connected with the unstable political situation in Ukraine. Ramazzotti will give a concert at Ukraina Palace in Kyiv at 19.30 on December 2, 2008, the Producer's Center company reported. All the tickets bought for the October 15 concert will be valid on December 2.
It will be Eros Ramazzotti's first-ever concert in Ukraine. Ramazzotti will present his last double album “e2,” featuring 14 of his best hits, four new songs and 17 old tracks remade with new singers, producers and arrangers such as Carlos Santana, Wyclef Jean, Steve Vai, Rhythm Del Mundo, Jon Spencer, Take 6, The Chieftains and John Spencer.
In 25 years of his music career, the prolific Ramazzotti released 11 albums and sold 40 million copies of them. In 1999, German’s Echo Awards named him the best international singer.
The Italian singer has performed with many international mega-stars. He sang “Cose Della Vita” (“Can’t Stop Thinking of You”) with American pop icon Tina Turner, and “Musica E” with Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli. His duets with Cher in “Piu Che Puoi” and “That’s All I Need to Know – Defendere” with Joe Cocker were also extremely popular. He sang “I Belong to You” with American singer Anastacia and “Non Siamo Soli” with Latino pop star Ricky Martin.
What has made Ramazzotti a success is his unique voice that can be described as slightly nasalized yet energetic and even a little aggressive. His songs are catchy yet passionate autobiographic ballads with a soft rock influence. Also, it doesn’t hurt that he is a good-looking chap with a Casanova reputation.
