As you might have guessed, announcements of Dolores O’Riordan solo performances have been popping up since her first solo appearance at Sanremo last weekend. Today, the o cial Zucchero newsletter confirms that she will appear at a Zucchero album launch charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall on May 6th. Also, the newsletter confirmed that Zucchero’s duets album, tentatively titled “Made of Stars,” will be out on May 14th. Last year, Dolores recorded a duet of Zucchero’s song “Puro Amore” which will appear on the album.
From the Zucchero newsletter: “Zucchero has announced details of a unique one-night concert event at the Royal Albert Hall on Thursday 6th May 2004. The Royal Albert Hall show will celebrate the release of Zucchero’s new album with many guest stars, Italian and international, which again shows that Zucchero’s music has no boundaries. This unique concert is a benefit in aid of the United Nations UNHCR Refugee Fund. It is therefore appropriate that it will reunite Zucchero with many guests that feature on the new album that will be realeased on May 14th. Artists so far confirmed to appear include, Solomon Burke, Ronan Keating, Cheb Mami, Brian May, Mousse T, Luciano Pavarotti , Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries, Paul Young and more will be added to this very special evening.
“ZUCCHERO says: During all these years I had the luck and the joy to meet and to collaborate with many great artists, with whom I shared stages and recording studios. I’ve always kept jealously these “pearls” in the drawer as I wanted to wait for the right time to get them out. Now, like the good wine, time is ripe to better taste this album, with an unique show together with my friends at the Royal Albert Hall on May 6th, 2004. With a lot of esteem, artistic and human respect. Your Italian cousin “with the hat”. Thanks – Lots of love Zucchero”
