Milton Nascimento at The Birchmere
Milton Nascimento announces farewell to the stage and promises an epic tour to honor the fans.
With a trajectory that includes a 60-year career and eighty years of life, Milton Nascimento decided that the time has come to say goodbye to the stage. But for this cycle to be complete, the artist decided to pay one last tribute to the fans with an international tour that promises to be epic: “One Final Music Session.”
“I could never end this part of my life of so many years on the road without honoring those who have been with me all this time: the fans. And this tour was designed especially for you!” explains Milton. After forty-three albums, five GRAMMY awards and an honorary doctorate from the Berklee School of Music in Boston, Milton is now preparing to sing his greatest hits on a tour that will pass through Brazil, Europe and the United States.
According to Milton, “It would be impossible to say goodbye without putting songs from all stages of my career in the repertoire,” He adds, “We want to provide a unique and exciting experience, from beginning to end.” Regarding the tour’s repertoire, Milton says that classics such as “Ponta de Areia”, “Encontros e Despedidas,” “Travessia,” “Cio da Terra,” and “Nos Bailes da Vida”, cannot be left our from the set list. “The rest is a surprise,” he says.
The tour “One Final Music Session” is directed by Augusto K. Nascimento. The stage scenery is designed by the artists OSGEMEOS, and the clothing used by Milton are by stylist Ronaldo Fraga. The musical direction is by maestro Wilson Lopes.
“One Final Music Session is the tour that will mark my farewell from the stage. From music, never. And I wait for you to complete this crossing with me.” – Milton Nascimento
