Event Rescheduled | A Message from Zucchero:

"Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic it is with much sadness I have to postpone the New Zealand, Australian, Mexican, American and Canadian shows. Unprecedented steps are being taken by the Authorities in these countries - and rightly so - in an attempt to control the spread of the virus. It is therefore now impossible for me, my band and crew to travel.

We are in the process of rearranging all theses shows and we will let you know as soon as we have the new dates on place.
Stay safe and take care of yourselves.

I love you all!"


Credited as the father of Italian blues and boasting over 80 million records sold worldwide, Zucchero is coming back to the United States with a special, intimate performance at the Howard Theatre in Washington on September 28, 2021.

Largely inspired by gospel, soul, blues and rock music, Zucchero’s music alternates between Italian ballads and more rhythmic R&B-boogie-like pieces. 

A regular on the world stage, having recorded, written and performed with the biggest artists on the globe including Pavarotti, Queen, Joe Cocker, Miles Davis, Bono, Eric Clapton and many more, Zucchero’s only performance in Washington will showcase songs from his new album ‘D.O.C.’ as well as his worldwide hits.

zucchero bio

Adelmo Fornaciari was born in Roncocesi on 25th September 1955. He later moved to Forte dei Marmi in Tuscany where, between 1970 & 1978 he formed his first R&B bands: ‘Le Nuove Luci’, ‘Sugar & Daniel’ and ‘Sugar & Candies’. By that time he was already known as Zucchero, a nickname given to him by one of his school teachers.

In 1981 he won the Castrocaro Festival with ‘Canto Te’. Then in 1983 he recorded his first studio album entitled ‘Un Po di Zucchero’. He travelled to San Francisco to visit Corrado Rustici who introduced him to Randy Jackson. When he returned to Italy in 1985 it was with a new band featuring Randy Jackson on bass, Corrado Rustici on guitar, Walter Afanatieff on keyboards and Giorjo Francis Perry on drums. He competed at the San Remo Festival with the song ‘Donne’ and then released ‘Zucchero & The Randy Jackson Band’. The follow up album, ‘Rispetto’, topped the charts upon release. Zucchero triumphantly competed at the San Remo Festival once again the following year with ‘Canzone Triste’.

Zucchero released his latest new studio album “D.O.C.” in November 2019, previewed by the earlier airplay given to the first single “Freedom”, co-written with British artist Rag’n’Bone Man. D.O.C. will be presented live in 2020 during a world tour that will kick off at the prestigious Byron Bay Festival in Australia. Zucchero will also perform two shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and in September and October 2020 he will play his only Italian dates of the tour at the Verona Arena.
