The singer has been giving interviews, declaring himself fully recovered from the Coronavirus.
He will return to the stage at the end of August in a concert at the Arena di Verona.
‘The thought of returning to my beloved Arena fills me with joy. An Arena transformed to protect us from contagion, all spaced and at the same time all united, audience, choir, orchestra, artists, in a big embrace. For me who was lucky enough to live there 50 years of magical evenings, returning to this historical moment will be a profound emotion, different from all the others. Because the happiness of making music will be joined by great respect for those who have struggled, suffered and for those who no longer exist.’
