If I had a star everytime Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio made me smile, I would be holding the night sky in my hand.

  1. That’s great. Congratulations. Our boys deserve every shiniing star.

  2. AWESOME!!! This is so amazing, but is it really so surprising? Look how amazing our guys are!! đŸ™‚ Thanks for being here and enjoying the blog!

  3. All you ladies that started this blog & worked so hard to get it up & running & who are continuing to keep it active & up to date, CONGRATULATIONS for your efforts, ideas & hard work. I am proud to belong as I am sure other ladies some of us who have been together from the other site & also the newcomers who have joined (although I do not want to speak for others) we are all proud of you ladies who had the foresight & experience & even inexperienced ladies to get it as wonderful as it is.
    Your ideas are superb & whoever does the artwork, GREAT JOB.
    This will be a blog that will be remembered for years to come & when I see the boys I am going to make sure they know about it & to look in & see how much they are loved.
    The LOVE is explicit in everything that is done or said here.

    1. That’s ok, Loretta! You can speak for me because I can’t agree with you more. I can’t wait to see just how far this site is going to go and what’s to come!

    1. I’m so glad to see you blogging again, Ann. I’ve missed you!
      Be sure to take pictures at the Chicago concert if you can, and be prepared to tell us all about it!
      Hope to hear more from you in the meantime!

  4. Thanks from me too, ladies! It’s great to have somewhere to go to see the latest news, and to have a little fun. I have just received my email from VIP Nation for Sunday night and am JUST CAN’T WAIT!

  5. tj: 2 questions When you were notified from VIP Nation did you have to email them back or did they just tell you where to pick up your VIP package or are you to meet someone & show identification.
    ALSO how did you get your icon up where it says like because I have pressed the LIKE & when I sign it doesn’t accept my twitter

    1. Loretta, we just have to turn up with photo id on Sunday to collect the package and tickets. Also have to sign a waiver then promising to stay with our VIP guide and not stalk or molest, etc (they’re no fun!). I don’ t think i did anything special for the icon, just pressed on Like, but I was signed in to WordPress.

  6. Just want to also express my appreciation for all the great work that has gone into this blog. As others have said, it’s wonderful to be able to share our thoughts about Il Volo with others who feel the same. That was a big void for me before this site was born. Also I love the way the topics are listed on the side of the page….makes it so easy to go right to the place you want.

  7. The real reason we’re doing all this is that picture of Gianluca on Mundial!! Gotta say – love the scruff! Part of his quote, “I’ll be better when I’m older”. Cutie, I get older as you get older. I don’t know how many more years this heart can take of you getting better!

  8. Marie and Loretta, did you see what TJ wrote? You have to sign a waiver that you won’t stalk or molest, OMG I hope the VIP person is on their toes. Remember it would be better for your records if we don’t have to bail you out of jail! I’m getting nervous now!

  9. thanks for adding the season tour schedule over on the side – that is great. I found out that the old website is missing three dates on it. I am trying to track that down.

  10. Wow! All you ladies are amazing! I thank you from the bottom of my heart that I can now keep in touch with others that love Il Volo like I do. I especially love Piero, but Gianlucca and Ignazio have my heart as well! I even am envious of Barbara V. for being with them all the time!

  11. Yeah, I saw. Did you see my response?
    Come on Linda! Don’t back out on us now! Looks like we really might need that bail money!
    So, do you think they would put me in jail just for touching? Hugging? Grabbing his cheek? Jumping on his lap? Touching again? Where do you think I should draw the line? I could go on…..

  12. LOVE this post.
    So beautiful and velvety, like our night sky.

    You impress the heck out of me, Flight Crew, with 10,000 views in 12 days.

    Thank you for making this “home” both cozy and rockin’!
    As well as so helpful with the latest news.

    IL VOLO… YOU are why this is possible, as beautiful as this blog is.
    It is all about YOU!

    Hugs and High 5s!

  13. You said it all perfectly, Jeanine…It really, truly IS all about Il Volo.

    Marie, I’m so flattered that you used the quote as a header for this page. Thank you!

    Those stats just keep getting better and better.
    It’s amazing!!! Heartiest congrats to all!!!!

  14. Tonight the sky is beautiful, I can see the moon, I can see the stars.

    I am grateful to live in this beautiful world. Our guys, their music, this blog, and my Board sisters all made my world that much more perfect. It’s Splendida!!!

  15. Elaine,, you said it all! How wonderful that we have the gifts of this beautiful world and our beautiful guys with their (yes!!) beautiful music! It is indeed Splendida – and so are all of you fellow Il Volo lovers! The blog is fantastic – thank you, thank you to the Flight Crew.

  16. Loretta, we dont have a guide with us during the performance. After the show we wait in our seats as everyone else leaves and the guide collects us so I think the waiver is for that time. You get a photo of you with the boys and then I hope will be able to chat with them, etc. Will keep you updated!

  17. TJ PLEASE DO from the sounds of it as if we are restricted you will not be a part of the original meet & greet as if they will do this meet & greet & then another one for fans who bought a meet & greet from a theatre of Ticketmaster.
    I am getting pretty angry just thinking about it because the people I was talking to at VIP didn’t say we would be chaperoned as if we are going to be controlled & NOT approach the boys other than a picture & small hug. I WANT A BIG HUG, I want to talk to the boys & get an autograph & my own pictures.
    Please forgive me I seem to be blowing up at you, I’m not just frustrated. I will run over the VIP guy or girl with my walker if she/he tries to stop me from approaching them
    I sincerely hope with all my heart you enjoy the concert which I know you will BECAUSE THEY ARE IL VOLO & can do NO wrong.
    I sincerely hope you enjoy the meet & greet & get pictures & autographs & hugs in a relaxing atmosphere. I will be waiting with bated breath & fingers crossed for you & me that you will have the experience I had at Massy Hall & that I won’t to go jail for attacking the VIP person.
