The legendary singer-songwriter from Xàtiva is saying goodbye to the music world with 12 concerts featuring new songs and his well-loved classics
Sooner or later, everything comes to an end, and the iconic Valencian singer-songwriter Raimon has decided that 2017 will be the year in which he says farewell to the music business. His long career, which say him becoming both a key figure in the anti-Franco protest song movement and a guardian of Catalan lyrical poetry, won him almost universal respect and admiration. And now this key figure for understanding Catalan culture in the 20th century is ready to bid farewell during twelve evenings at Palau de la Música, in which he will interpret old favourites and recent creations, and even give live performances of complete albums. To do so he will be accompanied by a children's choir on 13, 14 and 28 May. These concerts promise to be a farewell fitting for a figure of his status.
So, if you’re interested in taking part in this farewell to Raimon, you should know that there are still tickets on sale, though they are selling out fast. The concerts will take place throughout May, with the first on 5 May and the last on 28 May, and are your last chance to see Raimon on stage. Then your only option for listening to iconic songs like “Al vent”, and albums like “D’un temps, d’un país”, “Jo vinc d’un silenci” and “Diguem no”, will be through his recordings. It’s the end of an unforgettable period for Catalan music.
Additional information is available on the Palau de la Música website, where you can also buy tickets.
