In addition to this, last September the band joined the extraordinary line up of "Milano Rocks", opening the concert of Imagine Dragons with a memorable performance in the pouring rain in front of over 60,000 people, which will remain in the history of the group.

ABOUT MÅNESKIN Måneskin is an Italian band made up of four guys aged from 17 to 19: Damiano (vocals), Victoria (bass), Thomas (guitar) and Ethan (drums). Måneskin means “moonlight” in Danish, the name is a tribute to the bassist’s origin. Group members have known each other since middle school, but they started playing together only in 2015. Their sound is marked by different musical influences: a mix of rock, rap/hip hop, reggae, funky and pop, tied together by the soul voice of the frontman Damiano. The band’s look clearly reflects all these influences thanks to the refined taste unique to each member. During XFactor 11 Italy live shows, the young artists stood out and struck the audience, showing an incredible mastery of the stage, which is outstanding given the very young age. "Chosen", their first single, presented during the show, has reached millions of streaming and views and has been certified double platinum record. "Chosen" is also the name of their debut EP, published in December 2017 by Sony Music and produced by Lucio Fabbri, which was certified platinum only two months after its release. In a few hours, Måneskin literally sold out all the 21 dates of their first tour (February/April 2018) produced by Vivo Concerti. On March, 23rd the band released the new single "Morirò da Re" (double platinum record), followed by “Torna a casa” (platinum record). The songs anticipate the new album ”Il ballo della vita”, published on October, 26th 2018 and certified gold record in a single week, which debuted at #1 of the FIMI/Gfk ranking, the Italian tour that has started on November, 10th from Senigallia, the upcoming concerts in Europe in February 2019 and the new lives in March 2019.
