Italian blues crooner Adelmo Fornaciari, who got his nickname Zucchero (sugar) from a school teacher, has forged his own niche in mainstream music by collaborating with the likes of Elton John, Sting and Eric Clapton. The first Italian to be nominated for a Grammy, Zucchero's 2016 release Black Cat was his first full-length album in six years and saw a fittingly star-studded lineup of guest performers, including Bono, Mark Knopfler and Elvis Costello. He now hits Shibuya for one night of continental blues-rock magic, and will be joined by Japan's own guitar god Tomoyasu Hotei on the O-East stage.
