Circo Massimo area to be closed off this weekend for Vasco Rossi concerts.
The 70-year-old singer-songwriter, currently on a concert tour of Italy, was originally scheduled to play the coveted Roman venue in June 2020 however the dates were postponed several times.
Hugely popular in Italy, Rossi has released 30 albums and written more than 250 songs including numerous hits such as Senza Parole, Un Senso and Siamo Soli.

In 2019 there was just one concert at the Circus Maximus, by TheGiornalisti, an Italian band that split up just days after performing.
In 2020 and 2021 Circo Massimo swapped rock concerts for Rome's summer opera festival which this year has returned to its traditional base at the Baths of Caracalla.
Last month it was announced that Bruce Springsteen would return to the Circus Maximus on 23 May 2023 as part of a European tour.
