Anthony WHITE (known as Eg White) and Mo Jamil ADENIRAN (on “Vittime del Cool”) and Scandinavian artist Frida SUNDEMO (on “Cose che già sai”).
The track list of “D.O.C.” is as follows: “Spirito nel buio”, “Soul Mama”, “Cose che già sai” feat Frida Sundemo, “Testa o croce”, “Freedom”, “Vittime del Cool”, “Sarebbe questo il mondo”, “La canzone che se ne va, “Badaboom (Bel Paese)”, “Tempo al tempo”, “Nella tempesta”, “My Freedom” (bonus track), “Someday” (bonus track) and “Don’t Let It Be Gone” feat Frida Sundemo (bonus track).
From April 2020,“D.O.C.” will be presented live throughout the world, starting from Australia and reaching the Verona Arena in Italy the following September, a venue described by Zucchero as “one of the best places in the world to play music”, his only Italian dates of the world tour.
Moreover, two new dates have been added at Verona’s beautiful amphitheatre, September 24th and October 1st.
