Beyond the festivals

A 2020 of great concerts

Beyond the festivals

2020 promises to be a year full of great music. Before the festival season arrives (in addition to Nos Alive and Super Bock Super Rock, there will also be Rock in Rio this year), the city will be the venue for major shows by some of the heavyweights of music.

In January, the Coliseu will host eight shows of Madonna and Campo Pequeno will be the stage for the concerts of James Arthur and Keane. Next month, Devendra Banhart will perform twice at Capitólio and Aula Magna will welcome the Tindersticks..

In March, the Americans Cock Robin will perform at the Coliseu for a nostalgic audience. April will bring Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, and Bon Iver to the Altice Arena. And May will be a month of great shows: the British Michael Kiwanuka will perform at Campo Pequeno, the German band Alphaville will be at the Coliseu, and Harry Styles will be at Altice Arena.

In June, it will be the time to see James Blunt again at Campo Pequeno. And in July, choosing promises to be difficult: Altice Arena welcomes Kiss, Aerosmith, and Lenny Kravitz. In November, the phenomenon André Rieu will return to Altice Arena.

The North American band Guns N’ Roses will return to Passeio Marítimo de Algés, less than three years after they have sold out the venue.

Outside Lisbon, more specifically, at Passeio Marítimo de Algés, and before the arrival of NOS Alive which stars Kendrick Lamar,,Taylor Swift,, Billie Eilish, and Faith No More, May 20 is the starting date of the second phase of the European tour of the Not In This Lifetime Tour of Guns N’ Roses..
