World Wide Tour 1997

Press announcement (as published on the official website in 1997)

VASCO ROSSI NESSUN PERICOLO ... PER TE WORLD TOUR '97

An album - NESSUN PERICOLO ... PER TE - once again provocative, an enormous success which now gives its name to Vasco Rossi's international tour together with his band in April and May, from the United States and Canada to Europe.

Recorded in Los Angeles and Italy, the CD contains classic author ("Un gran bel film", Mi si escludeva"), ironic and provocative pop ("Nessun pericolo...per te", "Io perderò") and certain splendid ballads like "Sally" and "Gli Angeli".

A sensational tour - 40 dates almost always sold out - which lasted for more than 4 months and which reconfirmed Vasco Rossi as the leading rocker.

A video - "Gli Angeli" - directed by the great director Roman Polanski, presented at the International Film Festival in Venice, last September. With a great atmosphere, Polanski was able to have Vasco float in space thanks to special effects created especially for the video.

A book - "Diario di bordo del capitano" published by Mondadori, explosive and transgressive, a sales record and already a cult book.

In short, it was the year of Vasco Rossi and his rock. From the latest investigation on youngsters, their tastes and tendencies, Vasco has emerged as a myth, together with Sylvester Stallone and Sean Connery, a more loved and attractive personality than Madonna and Che Guevara...

And finally the cinema is calling Vasco and is offering him screenplays which are very interesting. But there is "nessun pericolo (no danger)" ..., rock will not lose one of its main players. In fact, the adventure continues on the road again. Three years after his last trip abroad, after the "Gli spari sopra", Vasco is returning with his band to travel the world and will do it in two months, April and May.

After the first two gigs in New York and Toronto, the "Captain & his crew" will move to Europe stopping in Belgium, Germany (Cologne, Frankfurt and Munich), Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia and Holland. Alongside Vasco on the stage, the band will be composed as follows:

- DEAN CASTRONOVO on drums
- DAVIDE ROMANI on bass guitar
- STEF BURNS on guitar
- MASSIMO RIVA on guitar
- ANDREA INNESTO on sax
- ALBERTO ROCCHETTI on keyboard
