SERGIO TACCHINI’s night with Chris White
Sergio Tacchini, the official tournament’s sponsor, threw a big party yesterday night in the VIP area at Foro Italico. The event, attended by friends, tennis personalities and showbiz celebrities, ended at midnight with a stunning performance by former Dire Straits saxophonist Chris White.
This extraordinary concert has allowed the tournament’s public to savour once again the unique style of this great artist, which contributed to celebrated sound of Mark Knopfler’s British band for ten years (from 1985 to 1995).
Here is a clip from the great night.
