Indie band Vetusta Morla is still touring around the country and will be performing at Mallorca Live Summer tomorrow 28th July. Tickets are sold out but we still have two concerts left. Tickets available at

Vetusta Morla is a Spanish Indie rock band from Tres Cantos, Madrid, who sing in Spanish. After nine years of a musical career, in February 2008 they released their first full-length album, Un día en el mundo. Three years later, in 2011, they released their second album, Mapas.1 On 8 April 2014, after several years of touring Spain and other countries, they released their third album, La deriva. In 2017 they released their fourth album Mismo sitio, distinto lugar. The band owes its name to the character Vetusta Morla from The Neverending Story, the giant old tortoise (“vetusta” in Spanish is synonymous with old, old woman).

This summer tour, as Pucho explained, has been conceived as a way of saving the dozens of technicians who have been left with their asses in the air by the coronavirus, in a lurch that has been little talked about in recent months. It is astonishing that a band accustomed to moving through the stratosphere, in artistic terms and in terms of repercussion, has not renounced class consciousness. Nor has it given up its determination to make a nuisance of itself, an uncommon habit in these times in which the inquisitiveness and virulence of others so often make us fearful.

To say that all concerts are important sounds atopic, it is like saying that “football is football”, as the great Bujadín would say, but we are not going to tell tall tales, tomorrow will be a big day and it will happen in Magalluf, possibly the most awaited concert on the island and with all the tickets sold out.
