|Laura Pausini concert chronology|
The 2005 World Tour is fourth world tour by Italian singer-songwriter Laura Pausini which started on 30 January 2005 in Ravenna, Italy and ended on 14 July 2005, in Locarno, Switzerland supporting her eight studio album Resta in ascolto / Escucha.
The shows played in 22 and 23 March from Paris, France were professionally recorded and made their way into Pausini's second live DVD, Live in Paris 05.
The album was issued by Warner Music in November 2005 in CD, DVD, CD+DVD and two-disc DVD editions.
About the tour
Announced the final semester of 2004, the tour visited Europe and the Americas during almost seven months in 2005. For Europe, the tour was sponsored by Barilla. The tour was sold out across the Americas and mostly the entire European continent. Music critics are agree that Resta in Ascolto is the album that took Pausini to a new level of fame. For the shows in Paris, Laura used an inalambric microphone for the "Mi abbandono a Te" performance and made some variations for the custom changes.
Broadcast and recordings
The recording took place at the Zénith de Paris during the shows played on 23 and 24 March. It has the complete setlist. It was released by Warner Music worldwide on 25 November in three editions: CD, DVD, CD+DVD (jewel case and amaray case).
Also, the DVD contains some extra features including official video "Bendecida Pasión" and the Spanish performance for "Escucha Atento" live.
The setlist presents some variations in every continent.
However, this is the most complete information about the programme in every city. During the shows in France, she presents a special performance of "On n'oublie jamais rien, on vit avec". The Italian song "Ogni Volta" was added to a medley with "Benedetta Passione" as Pausini wanted to pay a tribute to the author of that song, Vasco Rossi.
But, for technical reasons, this song was not performed at Le Zénith in Paris (this show is the one available on DVD).
- On n'oublie jamais rien, on vit avec was performed in France.
- Without You was performed with Pausini's father Fabrizio Pausini on April 28, 2005.
