Marco Minnemann recently finished an incredibly clinic tour of Italy playing to fans throughout the country.
The highlight of it was undoubtedly the solo performance that took place on July 18th at Alatri In Blues Festival, where Marco played right before Mike Stern's band. It marked the first time a solo drum set artist appeared at the festival dedicated to bands here in Europe. And, it was the largest crowd (the organizers reported more than 5,000 people) a solo drumset artist has ever performed to in Europe.
Comments on Marco's performance say that he gave a total standout performance...energy, precision, dynamics, finesse, flawless sense of time...all with a big smile thru the whole performance. It was such a phenomenal performance.
Below are some photos from the tour and festival.
