Joseph Calleja’s 2021 concert, set for September 4, celebrates the 70th anniversary of Italy’s most iconic music festival, Sanremo.
Seven decades of history will be celebrated in the form of a musical fairy tale with Malta’s world-famous tenor Joseph Calleja, the Malta Philharmonic orchestra and the legendary rhythm section of Sanremo, conducted by Maestro Leonardo De Amicis.
Boasting numerous television collaborations and an endless repertoire with Italian talent, De Amicis will lead a Calleja edition featuring past participants Fiorella Mannoia, Michela Zarillo and NEK. X Factor Malta star Destiny will also join the headline.
“Sanremo 70 years of dreams”, produced by Eurovisione Eventi and Palco R, in collaboration with Mint Media, is a spectacle of musical theatre written by Paolo Logli, screenwriter, television author and theatre writer.
Sanremo’s immortal notes from its protagonists, including songs that have become famous classics since their debut in Sanremo, will grace the Granaries in Floriana. Limited tickets are available exclusively and attendance will only be allowed for people in possession of a vaccination certificate. A maximum six-person bubble segmentation will be implemented in all areas. The organisers said this is a ticketed seated event in line with the latest covid regulations.

World-famous tenor Andrea Bocelli has released a new cover of Gerry & The Pacemakers classic You’ll Never Walk Alone with a music video shot entirely in Malta.
The dimly lit halls of the historic MCC set the ambiance for an emotional performance by Bocelli before the environment shifts to the iconic Upper Barrakka Gardens with a breathtaking backdrop of the Grand Harbour.
The world-renowned musician has a strong affinity for Malta, which produced its own tenor, Joseph Calleja, and even welcomed the new year with a spectacular 50-minute performance on Maltese TV.
The 50-minute set included eight songs across two iconic locations across the island – Fort St Elmo and St John’s Co-Cathedral. The decision to perform eight songs was in tribute to the eight-point cross of the Knights of St John.
