Laura Pausini concert chronology

The Inedito World Tour 2011–2012 is the sixth world tour by Italian singer-songwriter Laura Pausini in support of her eleven studio album Inedito / Inédito is planned to visit America and Europe so far. The tour ended on September 15, 2012, after Pausini announcing she was pregnant.[1]

Background information[edit]

On December 30, 2010, Pausini announced her eleventh studio album, Inedito / Inédito, set to be released both in Italian and Spanish on November 11, 2011. The title and the tracklist of the album were announced through Pausini's website on September 10, 2011. The first single from the album, "Benvenuto" / "Bienvenido", was released on September 12, 2011. The album was released on November 11, 2011; then, Pausini embarked in her sixth world tour starting in Italy during the last two weeks of December and going back to South America and Europe during the first semester of 2012. The tour was expected to return to South America in late 2012.

On March 18, 2012 show, the videoclip of the song Mi tengo debuted, playing on the videowall of that same song.

Pausini confirmed that the DVD in Spanish of the tour was recorded on April 20, 2012 in Madrid.

About the tour[edit]

Pausini performing No primeiro olhar for the first time on January 21 show in São Paulo.

In order to promote the album, Pausini engaged a World Tour, starting with 11 shows in Italy in late December 2011. The tour reached South America in January–February 2012 (returning to countries like Venezuela where just performed once 14 years ago during the World Wide Tour 1997) and traveling during March–May the European leg of her tour. According to her words it was to have been one of her largest world tours ever made (expected to be more extensive than her last World Tour 2009).

The stage, where a classic Italian production blends with the utmost rock aggressiveness, changes continuously during the concert; each song is highlighted by different effects. For the first time, Laura had a dance group made up of six dancers, who performed choreographies by world-renowned choreographer Nikos Lagousakos. And then video projections, special effects of a kind never before seen in Italy, and video-mapping, which make the show an exceptional event at the global level, and certainly the most sophisticated, poetic, and all-encompassing tour ever put on the road by an Italian artist. Gold marks the opening, followed by red for “passion”, and then the stage suddenly turns into an explosion of nature. A starry night acted as a backdrop for a 3D moon, bringing the show to a close with a big surprise. Costumes, accessories, videos and sets: every single element has been tailor-made for this special occasion by an international team of top level quality and experience. The collaboration with British architect Mark Fisher, for instance, set designer for Pink Floyd and U2, and creator of one-of-a-kind sets for the Cirque du Soleil, at his first ever contribution to an Italian production, and Patrick Woodroffe, lighting designer for leading pop and rock artists, including Bob Dylan, Ac/Dc, Depeche Mode, Rolling Stones, and who had recently been working on This is it, Michael Jackson’s last, never-completed show.

During the "Invece No" part of the show, Pausini is lifted up high, and sings the song in a way similar to the one during the Latin Grammy Awards of 2009 wearing a skirt specially designed for the artist by the English fashion brand CuteCircuit.[2] Also, in "Tra te e il mare" a moon is raised up above the spectators heads. In places with limited stage space, some of the props were removed, such as the performances in Brazil having no lifting and in Mexico City having neither lifting nor moon.

Currently, all dates up to February 14, 2012 showed the sold out.

Broadcast and recordings[edit]

To promote both the album and the tour, Pausini went to many TV shows and sang much of the songs present on the tour. This includes "Che tempo che fa" (where she sang "Bastava" and "Troppo tempo") and the Chiambretti Sunday Show on November 9, 2011.

Pausini recently confirmed that the DVD in Italian and Spanish were recorded respectively, in Bologna (on April 17, 2012) and in Madrid (on April 20). Also, she declared that during the Winter, there would not be many concerts due to her having to mix and give both DVDs their final format. On Pausini's official Facebook page, Pausini confirmed that the DVD will be released on the end of 2012. On November 27, 2012, the CD+DVD Inedito Special Edition was released in both Spanish and Italian.

On September 15, 2012, along with news of her pregnancy, Pausini confirmed that both DVDs will be released on November 27, 2012 and that the final single of the album Inedito will be "Celeste".[3]

The bilingual performance of the song "Resta in Ascolto/Escucha Atento" that took place in London during the tour was recorded professionally and this live audio was included in both versions of the album "20 - The Greatest Hits" and its Spanish-language counterpart, "20 - Grandes Exitos", that Pausini released a year after the end of this world tour.


In March, Laura returned to Italy starting from Ancona, but the tour is suspended due to the incident occurred March 5, 2012 at PalaCalafiore of Reggio Calabria. Around 2 am, a structural failure brought down and move the metal structure above the stage that has fallen on some workers intent at that time to fix the aerial lighting.
