Adelmo Fornaciari was born in Roncocesi on 25th September 1955. He later moved to Forte dei Marmi in Tuscany where, between 1970 & 1978 he formed his first bands: ‘Le Nuove Luci’, ‘Sugar & Daniel’ and ‘Sugar & Candies’. By that time, he was already known as Zucchero, a nickname given to him by one of his school teachers.
Zucchero's almost 50 year career has been spent playing with incredible artists: Randy Jackson, Joe Cocker, Miles Davis, Eric Clapton, Paul Young, Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, Bono & U2, The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, Sting, and many more. He has appeared at festivals, galas, and concerts worldwide - with the accolades, awards, and record sales to match.
In April 2016 Zucchero released Black Cat (Universal Music), his newest album, which will be performed live on this special tour.
