The music will add to the beauty of the Palácio de Cristal landscape every Friday and Saturday, starting tomorrow and concluding on 22nd August, with long established musician Rui Veloso.

António Zambujo and The Black Mamba, on 31st July and on 1st August, respectively, are the first performances of this live concerts initiative by Porto City Hall and two major national producer companies: PEV Entertainment and Everything is New.

This programme in Porto will bring audiences the perfect vibrant emotion of experiencing live music, which as someone once rightfully said, is food for the soul.

For four weekends in town, the "Noites do Palácio" ["Evenings in the Palace", free translation], artists and musicians will gather in front of Super Bock Arena/Pavilhão Rosa Mota, in an especially assembled location.

All preventive Covid-19 measures will be in place to safeguard both audiences and performers. Total public capacity is 650 people, seats will be dully assigned and social distancing must be observed. Tickets cost 10 euros.
