The ’Top of the Mountain Closing Concert’ in Ischgl closed the 2023 skiing season with Eros Ramazzotti at 2,320 m above sea level. 20,000 ski fans got to see the Italian superstar with his incredible band against a spectacular mountain backdrop in the Ischgl ski area and an unforgettable performance.
With spring-like temperatures and sunshine, the Italian superstar Eros Ramazzotti performed well-known and new hits in a 90-minute concert.
With classic hits like "Se Bastasse una Canzone", "Cose Della Vita" or "Adesso Tu" and songs like "Sono", "Ritornare a ballare" or "Gli Ultimi Romantici" from his new album Battito Infinito, the 59-year-old-old Roman singer and songwriter triumphed overwhelmingly on the Ischgl stage, not only because of his unmistakable vocal power but for an unforgettable concert experience.
Anyone who has experienced Eros Ramazzotti on stage can confirm that he is not only capable of convincing on his records, but especially live. His band made up of international musicians deserves a special mention: Luca Scarpa (Musical Director, piano), Eric Moore (drums), Giovanni Boscariol (keyboards), Giorgio Secco and Luca Mantovanelli (guitar), Paolo Costa (bass), Marco Scipione (saxophone). ), Dario Tanghetti (Percussion), with spectacular Monica Hill and Roberta Gentile in the Choirs.
Eros Ramazzotti follows in the footsteps of a galaxy of superstars who have entertained skiers and boarders in the Austrian resort's traditional Top of the Mountain gig. Years ago, Ischgl decided to put its entire advertising and marketing budget into staging two massive concerts a year to open and close the winter season.

Since then, the resort has hosted Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan, Sting, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Bon Jovi, Enrique Iglesias, Atomic Kitten, Peter Gabriel, The Corrs, Alanis Morissette, Lionel Richie, Pink, the Scissor Sisters, the Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, Elton John again, Gabriella Cilmi, Leona Lewis, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Gossip, The Killers, Roxette, Mariah Carey, The Scorpions, Deep Purple, Nickelback, Robbie Williams, James Blunt, Thirty Seconds to Mars, The Beach Boys, PUR, Zucchero, Jason Derulo, Lenny Kravitz, Simply Red, Kings of Leon, Sean Paul, and George Ezra.
The concert began with the 2001 song "L'Ombra del Gigante" and ended with "Più bella cosa" with a fully delivered and satisfied audience that will remember this event forever.
