Concerts in Rome

The Auditorium Parco della Musica


One of my favorite venues for Concerts in Rome is the Auditorium Parco della Musica. They present performers who represent the best of different music styles: classical music, jazz, latin music and electronic music as well.

But the Auditorium is an attraction well worth seeing by itself. It was designed by the famous Italian architect Renzo Piano and is structured in 3 beetle-shaped units that function as independent music halls. The complex includes also a bookshop, a bar and a restaurant, making it the ideal spot for a lovely evening before or after a concert.

To reach the Auditorium from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes, take the red subway line from Termini and get off at the station Flaminio, from there take the tram 2 and get off at the station Apollodoro.

Mumford & Sons: the Indie Folk Sensation Visits Rome


Thought folk was dead? Think twice. A new generation of indipendent rock musicians is taking the folk aesthetic for a spin, with interesting -and refresing- results.

Take Mumford & Sons, for example. Their look evokes that of a grassroots band and their music has a feeling of communal ecstasy to it- quite different from the individualistic rebellion we are used to expect from rock musicians. If you don’t believe me you can check this video and watch the joyful spasms of their bass player who seems to be channelling the spirit of a jazz musician.

The Mumfords hail from England and will be performing at the Atlantico Live March 16,2013.                                                                   If you visit Rome to attend the concert, drop me a line and I’ll make sure you get a 10% discount off our list rates for your accomodation in Rome.

Duran Duran visit Rome

One of the biggest bands of the 80’s and a driving force in the MTV fueled “Second British Invasion” of America, Duran Duran have made a rather large splash in the music industry. While they were generally considered part of the New Romantic scene along with bands such as Spandau Ballet when they first emerged, they later shed this image. The band worked with fashion designers to build a sharp and elegant image that earned them the nickname “the prettiest boys in rock”.imagesCAWVYKGH1

The group was formed by Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Stephen Duffy, with the later addition of Roger Taylor and, after numerous personnel changes, Andy Taylor and Simon Le Bon. Their controversial videos, which included partial nudity and suggestions of sexuality, became popular in the early 1980s on the then-new music video channel MTV. Duran Duran were among the first bands to have their videos shot by professional directors with 35 mm film movie cameras, which gave their videos a much more polished look. In 1984, the band were early innovators with video technology in their live stadium shows.

This summer Duran Duran come to Rome, to Foro Italico, Piazza Lauro De Bosis. You can catch a concert on the 18th of July at 20:00, make sure to book those tickets soon and remember to contact Hotel Des Artistes to get a great deal on one of our rooms.
