After the great success at the Festival of Sanremo 2018 winning the second prize with “Una vita in vacanza”, Lo Stato Sociale are coming in Spain between 8 and 13 of April 2018
As they define themselves, Albi, Bebo, Lodo, Carota and Checco are five Bolognese boys who make “canzonette” but their success is a fact!
They have published already several albums, in 2012 “Turisti della democrazia”, in 2014 “L’Italia peggiore” and in June 2016 came out their first novel “Il movimento è fermo” published by Rizzoli, who made them all-round artists . In 2017 they released “Amore, lavoro e altri miti da sfatare” and they have performed for the first time at the Mediolanum Forum of Assago (MI) with a show full of surprises and new contents.
We can define the Social State as the band of primates, and not only ironically in the sense of monkeys, but also because it is the first independent band of its generation, that despite the questionable clothing and hair, some delays, little accidents, some criticism from famous Italian politicians, they have managed to fill the greatests Italian clubs and sports halls with more than a reasonable prices for the public.
They were first in music charts, they participated in Sanremo Festival, they kissed each other live, they survived to a three hours of concert in August after three kilos of parmigiana.. with their songs, also first for number of words, these guys waiting for a night full of music and fun!
