Marco Mendoza starts his big European tour in Zemun

Marco Mendoza, one of the most prominent bass guitarists in the world, starts his big European tour in Zemun, Belgrade! Mendoza will perform with his band on the 13th April at the Fest club in Zemun.

Tickets are on pre-sale at the Fest club from Monday, 21st March and in the Felix Shop from Tuesday, 22nd March, at the price of 1500 RSD . On the night of the concert, the ticket price will be 1800 RSD.

Serbian fans remember this American musician of Mexican ancestry for his fantastic performance in Halla Sportova, Belgrade in 2015, when The Dead Daisies warmed up the fans before Whitesnake’s show.

His career began in the late eighties when he helped former Black Sabbath’s drummer Bill Ward with the realization of a solo album. He was part of the bands Alias, Blue Murder, Thin Lizzy and Black Star Riders, went on tour with Journey, Whitesnake… and collaborated with some of the greatest rock musicians of today.

The first solo album “Live for Tomorrow” was released in 2007. years. The album was co-written and produced by the great Richie Kotzen, and toured with Steve Lukather, Ted Nugent, Doug Aldrich, Tommy Aldridge, Brian Tichy, Marco Rentería and others. Three years later, “Casa Mendoza” was also released.

Critics said Mendoza is best portrayed as a musician on the album “Viva La Rock”, which was released in 2018. This “big, bad and beautiful” album portrayed his “bigger than life” personality in the best way. It was recorded in Copenhagen with the very talented Soren Anderson. The collaboration between him and Mendoza has brought really good energy to the studio and created some of the best rock songs that “seek to be released on radio stations around the world”, and will continue on future projects Mendoza plans.

“Long live La Rock! is a celebration of music, life, rock and roll, peace and love,”

Mendoza said about this album.

After his UK tour in early April, Marco Mendoza is moving to Europe. The tour, which will last until the end of June and will cover over 30 concerts, will start at the Fest club in Zemun 13th April.
