Top stars throughout the summer
Since 2013 the stylishly swish Port Adriano sports harbour has been holding an annual summer music festival which each year seems to grow bigger and bigger. Its success has snowballed and over 25,000 people have attended some great concerts over the years featuring Kool and the Gang, Earth, Wind and Fire, Gloria Gaynor, and last year George Benson and Sir Tom Jones!
The 2018 edition features a host of stars from different genres of music and really puts Port Adriano firmly on the world music and entertainment map. The concerts have a Las Vegas feel to them, though obviously without the gambling and associated bling of Vegas, as there is a VIP tables section where high rollers are plied with food and drink before the performances.
Let's look at just who can see during the summer, it's an incredible line up!
21st July – Jose Carreras, Spain's most famous opera singer and former member of the Three Tenors!
26th July – Raphael, perhaps the most popular singer in the Spanish language who has sold millions and millions of records and has 326 gold albums!
1st August – Ara Malikian, the rather hirsute Beirut born Armenian has assimilated music from all over the world in his over the top violin performances and brings his energetic show to Mallorca!
4th August – Las Minas Puerto Flamenco bring their 100 minute 100 miles an hour show of non-stop music and dancing from 11 winners of the Las Minas Flamenco award. Hold on to your castanets!
9th August – The Jacksons, yes THE Jacksons (photo) who were once The Jackson Five, celebrating 50 years in Showbiz. Wow!
14th August – UB40, the band that sang everything from Neil Diamond to Elvis to a Reggae beat. Still going strong after 40 years and still not signing on the dole!
If you want to go you can book tickets online and prices range from about the €30 mark for normal concert style standing to €300 ish for the super duper VIP tables right by the stage.
