In the wake of Eurovision national final season, when all participating countries finalize their songs and artist choices for the competition in May, a new period of artist promo and touring is about to begin — “pre-party season”!
While Marco Mengoni has not yet confirmed if he will travel to the pre-parties in London, Madrid, or Amsterdam in April, Eurovoix has reported that he will be traversing the continent with a pre-party of his own — a European tour!
With stops in Paris, Brussels, Frankfurt, and Zurich all in the last week of April, Mengoni will be sharing his music outside of Italy and delighting fans both new and from before his recent Sanremo win. Mengoni has also announced a stadium tour across Italy, though those shows will take place later on in June and July.
Meanwhile, fans of Marco Mengoni will be waiting anxiously to hear the 3-minute “Eurovision version” of his Eurovision entry “Due Vite”. While none has been officially released or performed live yet, one keen-eyed Twitter user noticed that lyrics for the song have been posted on the official Eurovision website, with fewer stanzas than the original:
🇮🇹 Based on the official lyrics submitted by RAI to the EBU, the #Eurovision version of Marco Mengoni's "Due vite" has been cut in the first verse and the first chorus, to adhere to the 3-minute rule.

While fans can imagine how the re-worked arrangement might sound based on these lyrical updates, they may have to wait until the official CD is released to know for sure…
