Well folks, here’s the thing. We’re still learning. We have made a mistake. Jeanine showed us yesterday that moving her blog piece was the wrong thing to do. (I) We quickly realized that it interrupted the flow of concert comments. Our attempt was to keep you from scrolling your fingers off! But, we didn’t like it. I’m sure you didn’t either. I’m putting Jeanine’s piece back out here for your enjoyment.
So, we have decided to ask you to just police yourselves. Make your concert comments as concise and detailed as you can. If you would like to write a lengthy experience, concert or otherwise, let us know and we will print it in the “experiences” column. Thanks for bearing with us. I’m sure this is the first and only mistake we will make. Sure!
So, now, WRITE!

As promised, here’s Jeanine’s lovely concert comments:
My friend and I punctuated our arrival here by listening to “Beautiful Day!” She’s still quoting from the song. (; >)
The concert… Nikki Yanoffsky was an opener for the boys. They did not sing “with” her. Honestly, I’m grateful.
The boys portion alone was 2 to 2.5 hours! How do they do it?! Counting songs in my iTunes, and considering they shared some new songs tonight (!), and counting the same song in different languages as different songs, they have at least 60 songs including solos in their repertoire!
I’ll start with some hints from the concert… Gianluca shared one of his idol’s songs. (Have you guessed?) OK, another hint – His idol’s name begins with F. You must know. But if not, his last name begins with S. Gian’s voice was power and silk and baritone! I was so happy for him! It must have been so fun to sing a FS classic!
Your wishes were honored / someone’s listening… – one or more solos from each of the boys (yum!) – no female accompanists (how many female singers out there are really up to our guys’ caliber in voice, energy, uplifting spirit!?) – a good many Italian songs – a nice mix from different albums – Jose Jose would be pleased! (; >)
– 3 of the 5 new covers from Special Edition (They were stunning, and of course, there will be those who will want all 5 or a different 3.)
I will say that the IL VOLO power, harmony, emotion, and fun seem to be growing exponentially! The solos were powerful, definitely not lightweights! They really show their stuff!
Well, guys, I am too tired to write anything eloquent.
Thanks to hotel wi fi, I was able to write this much. Didn’t really want to give it away for those of you who will have your own treasure of an experience on the 5th or the 12th or whenever!
My friend and I will be having sweet IL VOLO dreams with “Memory”(ies) echoing throughout!
Just wanted to write, even though I’m too tired to do this justice.

Jeanine, I’m glad you enjoyed Sunday’s concert. Thrill of a lifetime, I’d bet. Anyway, if you are willing, or able, can you tell if Gianluca’s solo of Night and Day was the jazzy, uptempo version or the slower version that Sinatra first did in the late 40’s. What did you think of it? If you can inform, I thank you,.
Hey, thanks so much, Marie, especially since I really didn’t intend that to be my shared experience. Thanks, too, Kelly, for your message.
Christine, I’m not sure. I’m guessing Sinatra’s version.
One other clarification. Just read Jay Minter’s review, and I added a clarifying comment: …their opener was actually “Questo Amore”, the Italian version of the Aerosmith song “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.”
I answered Myron’s questions under the Wait a Minute section. It was long, Marie. I’ll try to curb that in the future. You’ll see that there may be value in the inside track that I shared.
And, Flight Crew board, you folks are awesome! I could not be more impressed with this blog and the way that you are unfolding it!
