Russell Crowe and his band to perform in Pompeii

Pompeii to host Russell Crowe's Indoor Garden Party.

Hollywood actor and musician Russell Crowe will perform with his band The Gentlemen Barbers in the ancient amphitheatre of Pompeii on 9 July as part of a summer tour of Italy.

Crowe kicked off his Italian tour last month at the Temple of Venus and Roma, in the shadow of the Colosseum, and two other shows in Rome at the Forum Theatre.

On Tuesday Crowe shared a concert poster on X that echoes the style of the ancient Roman notices for events that were once painted onto walls around Pompeii.

Crowe, 60, is undertaking a tour of Italy this summer, staging Indoor Garden Party concerts in Ascoli Piceno, Bari, Bologna, Cosenza, Piacenza, Siena and Varese.

Famed for his roles in blockbuster films such as Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind, the Oscar-winning actor and director has long led a parallel career in music, with a repertoire ranging from rock to folk and country.

Crowe, who was born in New Zealand but has spent much of his life in Australia, recently discovered that he has Italian heritage, tracing his roots to Ascoli Piceno in Italy's central Marche region.
