Italy’s Maneskin makes good on the hype at the Fillmore Detroit – The News Herald

Maneskin almost didn’t make it town for its show on Friday night, Nov. 18, at the Fillmore Detroit.

Frontman Damiano David told the sold-out crowd that the Italian quartet’s trip from Chicago, where it performed the previous night, was hampered by heavy snows in western Michigan and Indiana. Perhaps juiced by the white-knuckle ride, David declared, “Let’s make this cold, cold night a (expletive) hot night!”

And that’s exactly what Maneskin did over the course of its 90-minute, 16-song show, the group’s first in these parts.

Though it’s been together for the better part of seven years, Maneskin has been a hot property since winning the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest and has since gone on to appearances on everything from “Saturday Night Live” and American Music Awards appearances to numerous festivals, including Lollapalooza. Earlier in the week it received a Grammy Award nomination for Best New Artist.

A lot of hype? Yes — but hardly. In the flesh on Friday Maneskin proved it was indeed a Real Deal, a tight and confident outfit with an unapologetic swagger and a stadium-sized energy that a theater like the Fillmore could barely contain. The group clearly studied its Rock and Roll 101 and moved on to master classes, from David’s room-filling charisma to Thomas Raggi’s guitar god poses and nimble solos. Bassist Victoria De Angelis, meanwhile, got up close and personal with the crowd a few times, surfing atop it during “Close to the Top” and romping around the floor as Maneskin played “Touch Me.”
