Just confirmed! The Eurovision 2017 winner Salvador Sobral will give a concert in the ‘Doornroosje’ concert hall in Nijmegen. The concert hall’s website Doornroosje.nl confirmed the news on Tuesday 3 September.
New album and European tour
You will remember that Salvador Sobral has undergone a very serious medical surgery. As a result, it was quiet around the singer in the first period after his Eurovision victory. Fortunately he had recovered in time to attend the Eurovision Song Contest of 2018 in Lisbon. Shortly after that, he started his life as a singer again. Salvador released his second album ‘Paris, Lisboa’, because the two cities have influenced the recording process. In addition, it’s also an ode to Wim Wenders’ film classic ‘Paris, Texas’. On the album Salvador does not only sing in Portuguese, there are also songs in Spanish, French and English.
He performed in various places in his home country Portugal. Later, he also started performing in other countries such as Poland, Germany, Spain and Switzerland. The Portuguese singer is alive and kicking again.
Near future plans
Salvador Sobral currently has four more concert destinations on the schedule. He goes to Spain, France, the United Kingdom and The Netherlands.
On March 28, the Portuguese singer-songwriter comes to The Netherlands for the first time with his soulful, jazz-influenced songs. The concert will take place at concert hall Doornroosje in Nijmegen. Salvador will not be alone on stage. Three Portuguese top musicians, including the acclaimed jazz pianist Júlio Resende, will accompany him.
