Monaco’s traditional Sporting Summer Festival will feature fewer concerts in 2018, but among the scheduled 19 events there will be more top-level performers, according to the SBM.

Jean-René Palacio, SBM’s artistic director, told local French daily Monaco Matin that there will be shows that can be seen in Monaco but nowhere else.

Ringo Starr will open the season on July 6, for a unique concert in which he plays drums, of course, but also sings, the daily said. Other stars include Grace Jones and Rita Ora. Returning to the Salle des Etoiles will be Santana and Tom Jones. Some of the concerts will be held at the Salle Garnier, continuing a trend from last year.

Possibly the high point of the summer festival will be a five-night appearance by the Cirque du Soleil in mid-August, who will perform a show called ‘Monte-Carlo.’

“It’s a unique creation for the Principality, with Cirque du Soleil’s imagination in fifteen scenarios that evokes the history of Monte-Carlo and its casinos,” said Jean-René Palacio.
