Epic Concerts To Look Out For In Malta This Year

Calleja, Bocelli, and more

Epic Concerts

Malta's had its fair share of amazing music concerts, and with every new year that arrives we wait eagerly to find out which music legend will make a stop in Malta to rock the island with their tunes.

Well this year is a whopping one for music, and these are the five main reasons why.

1. Symphonic Beatles – February

This awesome night of classic Beatles music is just round the corner, so you better not be slow about getting your tickets. The Beatles Philharmonic Tribute is an orchestral concert of interpretations celebrating the legendary music of The Beatles. 

These guys' first-ever star-studded concert was held at the Royal Albert Hall, but now they're coming to MCC. Be there on the 17th-18th February!

2. Il Volo – June

The Italian singing trio Il Volo will be back in Malta in June for a concert called ‘A tribute to the three tenors’. For those of us less up-to-date with the tenors of the world, the 'three' are José Carreras, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti. 

Il Volo will be commemorating the night of July 7, 1990, when their three major opera heroes performed together at the Teatro delle Terme di Caracalla in Rome. And you can do so too – the concert takes place on the 8th July at the MFCC at 9pm. For tickets and more info visit their Facebook event page

Topping it all off at the height of summer is a mega celebration for our nation's beloved uber-talent – Joseph Calleja. 2017 marks the 20th Anniversary of Joseph Calleja’s public debut in the world of opera, so he's teaming up with special guest Andrea Bocelli to mark this awesome occasion.

The concert will take place on the 19th August at the Granaries in Floriana, and will also include the wonderful Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and the BOV Joseph Calleja Children’s Choir. Do not delay on your ticket-buying. You know this is going to be epic!
