RanestRane play The Wall: a tribute to the seminal album by Pink Floyd
September 23, 2019
We are so pleased to finally announce some special gigs, a preview of our new project, that will be released in 2020.
As many of you guessed correctly, we are speaking about: THE WALL - Il Cineconcerto.
Alan Parker's film is precisely what inspired us - over 20 years ago - to undertake an original and multimedia journey into the contemporary rock scene.
This year we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the publication of the Pink Floyd's album "The Wall". Paying tribute to this masterpiece was the right thing to do.
Our personal reinterpretation of the music of Pink Floyd and our original music will be accompanied by complete synchronization with the film, to create what is now our "trademark": the Cineconcerto, a unique show of its kind.
We are thrilled to announce that RanestRane will perform the opening act during the Marillion Japanese Tour.
We will play on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st October at the Live Theater Club Citta’ Kawasaki to open the show just before Marillion take to the stage. Thank you to the band for inviting us! We are so proud to open your gigs again!
Moreover, we are really delighted to have the opportunity to meet our Japanese fans. Our first and last gig in Japan was in 2013 when we performed the seminal RDM’s album “Contaminazione”.
This time we will perform live a selection from our albums.
The earthquake of last Wednesday gave us all a terrible shock. Here in Rome we felt a long swaying followed by aftershocks: we were alive and well but we suddenly understood that something terrible was going on just nearby us. When we discovered where was the epicenter of this devastating earthquake, we jumped up in fright: entire towns have been levelled, with Amatrice, Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto suffering the most damage. Some of us have relatives and friends in the area affected.
Fortunately no one was hurt.
We all started receiving text and Facebook messages and phone calls from people concerned about our safety. We really want to thank all people who genuinely cared about us and our families.
We have no words to express our heartfelt sorrow for the victims. During these days we have been wondering how to help. We are not rescuers, but performers. And there is only a way to help, there is only a thing we can do: perform our music.
As many of you know, we will perform a gig on Sunday 4th September in Bologna (Italy). Admission to the gig is free, but, as always we will have our merch items. So we decided that merchandise sales will be donated to the relief funds created by the municipalities affected (Amatrice, Accumoli and Arquata del Tronto).
That’s our way to help people affected by this terrible disaster.
Will you join us?
