For half a century Adriano Celentano has been one of the most beloved artists in the Italian music industry. In all that he has done - he has been an innovator, amazing audiences and leaving an imprint on Italian music history with his countless hits, beating the time of three generations.

Maurizio Schweizer’s clone likeness, both in physical appearance and vocally, is the spark lighting the Celentano Tribute Show - a concert including many of the most beautiful songs from the 'Molleggiato’s' repertoire (Molleggiato is a nickname for Celentano meaning 'flexible one' because of his dance style), performed live by an eleven piece band with original arrangements.

Throughout his life, Maurizio has countlessly been asked "Do you know you look like...”, "Do you know you sing like...” So, when he finally decided to plan a tribute to Celentano, attention to detail was key in order to present everything that is Adriano Celentano: accurate musical and vocal repertoire, professional costumes, original vintage accessories and scenes, sketches replicated from concerts, TV shows and films. On stage, Maurizio is supported by an impressive 11 piece band including three female backing vocals, a powerful rhythm section and a sparkling brass section. All this not to grossly mock or simply clone, but to amuse, to excite, to dream, to CELENTANIZE with the audience.

Beside collecting success in all Italy’s regions, the Celentano Tribute Show has crossed national borders: Russia, USA, Germany, Ukraine, Latvia, Austria, Turkey, France, Spain, Belarus, Israel, Australia, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, Slovakia, Monaco, Switzerland, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Oman... and now Canada!

Tributo Adriano Celentano

*This song, released in 1972 by Celentano, is sung in English with an American accent but with deliberate unintelligible gibberish with exception of the words 'all right'.  Celentano's intention was not to create a humorous novelty song but to explore communication barriers using lyrics that didn't mean anything and creating a music classic.  And, yes, this is Maurizio Schweizer performing as Celentano!
