Album of the Day
San Siro 2007
Among the most successfully pop vocalists in Italy, Laura Pausini was cutting records before she got her high school diploma, and has so far sold more than 70 million albums worldwide, singing in Italian and Spanish. On June 2, 2007, Pausini became the first female artist to sell out the San Siro soccer stadium in Milan, a performance released on CD and DVD as SAN SIRO 2007. The singer–songwriter's second live collection features songs from her two most recent albums along with medleys of hits, offering an excellent distillation of her career to that point. The mezzo-soprano is in superb form, the 70,000-strong crowd appreciative and the sound pristine throughout – despite a rainstorm during the concert. SAN SIRO 2007 was released 10 years ago today, and if you're curious about the global phenomenon that is Laura Pausini, it's a good place to start.
