Surprise Trip Love is our theme this summer with the album and tour!
Summertime fun in Italy has been non stop and interesting with all the concerts and traveling. Italy is now our official second casa. Ronn kicked off his tour in our hometown of Fasano. This is in the southern part of Italy, in the region of Puglia. I wanted to celebrate my 60th birthday with friends from Europe and America with an intimate kickoff of the “Surprise Trip Love” concert tour.
This was a beautiful all white birthday theme party. I had guests that flew in from Holland, Belgium, Germany, England and America. It was truly an unforgettable evening under the stars with beautiful weather, music and Italian cuisine.
Angelique de Vries came from Amsterdam and took all the beautiful photos below from the party. My beautiful friend actress/sommelier, Sandra Taylor came all the way from America. Renowned artist Michael Moebius came in from Germany, singer Maria Elena Infantino flew in from England. Belgium journalist Sylvia Van driessche and her actor/producer husband Jelle De Beule rounded out my wonderful guests, along with many Italian friends that made my birthday an extra special night to remember.
Ronn and I are brand ambassadors of Italian/American designer, Jennifer Tattanelli. She made me a surprise birthday dress that was handmade with lace from Florence and we have been wearing her stylish clothing all summer.
Going into summer and getting settled into our new trulli was very relaxing. And then the bigger concerts began in picturesque Polignano a Mare. This was where the launch party for “Lost & Found In Italy” magazine presented a 24 page color cover story on Ronn and his career.
This was held on the beach of the most iconic spot of this amazing city and we had a great time dancing under a gorgeous full moon. As we moved into August, Ronn’s concert schedule got a bit more hectic. Ronn released his first music video, “Just a Little” from his new album and more videos are in the works from this album. Traveling for the “Surprise Trip Love Tour” we saw the crowds got bigger as most of Italian concerts are held outdoors in piazzas.
They are free concerts paid for by the cities within Italy and it seems Ronn is getting more and more requests for additional concerts. So he has decided to do all other countries next summer and focus only on Italy this summer. As we are now in the middle of summer here, I will bring you more updates of how the tour is going as we move into fall. Please check Ronn’s site for additional updates. Hope you all are enjoying your summer so far!
