Ornatos inaugurate Super Bock Arena

Tickets for the Ornatos Violeta concert, which will open the Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota (Palácio de Cristal) on October 31st, are on sale from October 3rd.

Announced as "a 360º show", this concert will also mark the 20 years of the album "O monstro precisa de amigos", so it will be time to hear again songs such as "Ouvi dizer", "Chaga" and "Capitão Romance".

For the Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota, to open the venue’s stage with a concert by a band that has its roots in Porto was the inspiration. "Ornatos Violeta are a leading Portuguese band that spans generations and has created a surge of huge enthusiasm whenever new concerts are announced", Círculo de Cristal said in a statement.

Ornatos Violeta was formed in 1991 in Porto and remained active for about a decade, during which time they released two albums: "Cão" and "O monstro precisa de amigos". Having achieved the status of "cult band", the group announced their split in 2002.

Manel Cruz (voice), Nuno Prata (bass), Peixe (guitar), Kinörm (drums) and Elísio Donas (keyboards) got back together again in 2012 to mark the 20 years since the formation of the band with eight concerts. In 2019, they repeat the programme with the motto "O monstro (ainda) precisa de amigos" (The monster (still) needs friends), having performed at the main Portuguese festivals and now ending the tour with this concert in Porto.
