With a show full of emotional moments, Milton Nascimento said goodbye to the stages in Belo Horizonte, this Sunday (13).
An audience of around 60,000 people watched the final performance of the tour “The Last Music Session” at Mineirão stadium.
“Bituca”, as the icon of Brazilian Popular Music (MPB) became known, was moved in more than one moment – including when he dedicated the show to singer Gal Costa, who died last Wednesday (9).
“This show is dedicated to my dear Gal Costa”, declared Milton before starting a performance of the song “Catavento”.
The singer-songwriter, who turned 80 in October, played shows in several Brazilian states, in addition to international presentations, to mark his retirement — from the stages; of the song, “jamais”, as he insisted on recording in the video that opened the show.
“Living this moment after 60 years of career is proof that my dreams never got old”, introduced the classic “Clube da Esquina nº 2”.
During the 2-hour show, artists such as Samuel Rosa, Wagner Tiso, Toninho Horta Lô Borges and Beto Guedes took to the stage.
The repertoire included several classics from Bituca’s career, such as “Paula e Bebeto”, “Nos bailes da vida” and “Maria, Maria”, with minutes of fireworks.
Milton Nascimento cried at the end of the show standing up, hugging his son, Augusto Nascimento, while the audience chanted “Bituca” and applauded the singer and his team.
