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 college , Milton is now preparing to sing his greatest hits on a tour that will pass through Brazil, Europe and the United States.
Presented by ArtDontSleep, the event is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Milton Nascimento’ The final act. A small orchestra will join The Voice of God (Milton) on stage and bring his iconic songs to life.
