Måneskin, the dynamic Italian rock quartet, bid a triumphant farewell to their ‘Rush!’ tour in Manchester with a heartfelt homage to the city’s musical legacy. Closing their global journey at Manchester’s AO Arena, frontman Damiano David and guitarist Thomas Raggi graced the intimate b-stage armed with an acoustic guitar, capturing the essence of their admiration for the city’s musical heritage. David, amidst applause, acknowledged Manchester’s role in nurturing exceptional artists, singling out a particularly “nice” one – Oasis. With humility, he speculated that the legendary band might find their cover of “Don’t Look Back In Anger” a bit unconventional.
As Raggi strummed the opening chords, a wave of cheers swept through the crowd. The audience, fervently singing along, illuminated the arena with the glow of their phone lights during the song’s chorus. Måneskin’s rendition of Oasis’ classic became a poignant moment, merging the band’s contemporary flair with a nod to the iconic sounds of Manchester.
Via NME – The Manchester show marked the conclusion of Måneskin’s extensive ‘Rush!’ tour, which spanned 30 dates across five continents. From the tour’s kickoff in Hanover, Germany, in September to its grand finale in Manchester, the band traversed North America, South America, Australia, Asia, and more. ‘Rush!,’ their third full-length album, received acclaim from NME, earning three stars. Thomas Smith praised the album as a testament to the band’s resilience and talent, capturing their journey through the whirlwind of success over the past 18 months.
Måneskin’s accolades continued as they secured victories in the Best Rock Act and Best Italian Act categories at the MTV EMAs, capping off a year of remarkable achievements. The band, initially propelled into the spotlight by winning the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest with “Zitti E Buoni,” has faced challenges, including controversy surrounding Damiano David’s alleged drug use backstage, which he refuted through a voluntary drug test.
In a candid interview with NME last November, the band delved into their growing success and the creative process behind ‘Rush!’. Bassist Victoria De Angelis shared insights into the album’s experimental sound, citing Radiohead as an influence. She revealed their exploration of new sonic territories while staying true to their ballad roots, encapsulating the evolving essence of Måneskin’s music.
