A total of 17 shows were announced. In addition to the six in Brazil, eleven more will be held abroad, between Italy, the United Kingdom, Portugal and the United States.

“I could never end this part of my life after so many years on the road without honoring those who have been with me all along: the fans. And this tour was designed especially for you!” Milton explains in the promotional material.

The shows’ repertoire spans various phases of the artist’s career, including such classics as “Ponta de Areia” (1975), “Encontros e goodbyes” (1985), “Travessia” (1967), “Cio da terra” (1994) and ” In the Dances of Life” (1981).

For Milton “it would be impossible to make this farewell without incorporating the repertoire of songs from all phases of his career”. And he adds: “We want to offer a unique and exciting experience, from start to finish.”

Milton Nascimento’s music career began in the 1960s: Born in Rio de Janeiro but raised in Trs Pontas in the interior of Minas Gerais, he began his artistic career as a member of dance bands until he moved to Belo Horizonte, where he developed his songwriting Side.

Even before his recording debut, the artist had one of his compositions performed by Elis Regina (19451982). Cano do sal was published by the artist in 1966.

The following year, Milton Nascimento joined Minas Gerais singer and composer Fernando Brant (19462015) with whom he composed the song “Travessia” that gave the name to his first album.

Three years later, in 1970, he launched the Clube da Esquina movement with the release of the song of the same name, written in collaboration with L Borges, on the album “Milton”.

The album Clube da Esquina was not released until 1972. The work was responsible for the projection of Minas Gerais on the Brazilian music scene. It was recently voted the greatest Brazilian album of all time in a poll conducted by the podcast Discoteca Bsica, in which 162 specialists from different fields of music production took part.

This work, which later gave its name to a historical musical movement involving artists such as Beto Guedes, Ronaldo Bastos, Wagner Tiso, Tavinho Moura, Toninho Horta and many others, turned 50 years old this year 2022.

But the legacy Milton Nascimento built doesn’t stop there. Since his debut in 1967, the singersongwriter has released an additional 32 studio albums and eight live albums.

In recent years, the artist has dedicated himself to rerecording songs that have marked his career, as well as interpreting songs by other artists, such as the case of Gilberto Gil’s “Dro”, recorded by Milton in collaboration with pianist Amaro Freitas was released in 2020

In the same year, in collaboration with Criolo, he released the EP “Existe amor” (2020) with four unreleased recordings made in 2018 with the production of Daniel Ganjaman.

The meeting with the rapper from São Paulo happened again on the album “Sobre Viver” (2022), which Criolo released on the 5th. Milton takes part on the track “Me cut in the Mouth of the Sky, Death does not ask for sorry”.

Another recent partnership of the artist was with singer Liniker on the album ndigo butterfly anil which she released in 2021. Bituca sings on the track “Lalange”.

The farewell tour does not mean that the artist will retire from music altogether. In an interview with the newspaper “O Globo” he explained that he can continue to record, but he has no plans to go on stage anymore.

“I want to stop from concerts. But I want to continue composing and singing. I won’t stop playing around with music,” he said.

In the same interview, Milton said that he recently composed three tunes and one of them entitled “Luck in Love” has lyrics signed by Ronaldo Bastos.
