CANNES / FRANCE – What was still missing for the Måneskin won Sanremo, won Eurovision, seduced the American television audience and the Coachella alternative audience?
There was no cinema, and here it is: the band of Damiano, Victoria, Thomas and Ethan conquered the most rock red carpet of the Cannes 2022 festival: the one dedicated to Elvis, the highly-anticipated biopic on Presley.
The Måneskin on the red carpet of “Elvis”.
They had a right, to tell the truth: the film’s soundtrack includes their version of If I can dream (here), Elvis’s first song with social content (recorded in 1968 with references to Martin Luther King and his famous discourse on racial equality, “I Have a Dream”).
But the show started in the afternoon.
Let’s go in order. Arrived yesterday in Nice and immediately “deported” to the JW Marriott hotel on the Croisette (the upgrade to the Hotel du Cap in Cap d’Antibes is still missing, that of the true-true stars), they certainly did not spend their time in retreat, on the contrary: they launched yet another provocation after Coachella’s “putin down” “.
On his Instagram account, Damiano (as always unaccompanied by his girlfriend, Giorgia Soleri) posted a photo while smoking with the tag “I smoke the Cannes”, and then another story in which he continues to blissfully smoke, evident (and funny, let’s face it) response to French insinuations that they wanted to invalidate their victory at Eurovision 2021 due alleged use of cocaine.
Afterwards, the rehearsals on the beach, where a structure was even created to host, after the red carpet and the film, the great Elvis party in Cannes complete with live social media on the TikTok @warnerbrosfrance account.
And now away, towards the new commitments. After the release of the single Supermodel – presented in the Eurovision final in Turin and the result of months of work in Los Angeles (including a trip to Memphis and Graceland, the legendary home of Elvis Presley) with the same producer of Coldplay and Lady Gaga – two concerts await them in Italy (on June 23 at the Stadio Comunale in Lignano Sabbiadoro and on July 9 at the Circus Maximus, in Rome).
And, from October 31, the world tour – postponed for the war, between the dates were scheduled Kyiv and Moscow – Loud Kids. First stop: Seattle.
