Well another year is almost over. What a year it has been, not only for Il Volo, but for us adoring fans. Lets look back a little. In January and February we were panting for news of concert dates and Il volo appearances. We were frantically asking manangement for news, remember? In February we did celebrate Gianluca’s birthday and he sent out that sweet video, thanking his fans, remember? Finally in March we got news that Il Volo would be on tour in North America and that they were doing 2 PBS specials at the end of March in Miami, remember? There was a lot of scrambling for tickets because of the short notice, but Michele and Elaine (who did not know each other then) got tickets and came to Miami for the shows, remember? The Boys then hit South America for a promotional tour for over 3 months, remember? They did some TV here, like “Home and Family” and “Kelly and Michael”, remember? They went home for a short time and were back here in August to start Their North American Tour, remember? We, who were lucky enough to go to their concerts (some, more than one!) shared our pictures and memories with everyone here (Piero jumping in the cab with Mary, Marie and Loretta in Detroit) remember? They hit South America running in October and and finished up here in December with TV performances and promotions for “Buon Natale” shown on PBS, remember? They also snuck in an appearance and a song for the nationally televised Disney Christmas Parade, before they went home, remember? Il Volo appeared at the Mall of America and Mary B, Allene and Jane had the opportunity to have a private meeting with them, remember? They finally left for home December 10th and did concerts at 2 Bascilica’s in Italy, one of which was at The Bascilica of St Francis of Assisi, remember? Those are the highlights, I’m sure there are more. I can tell you this ,Il Volo did all of us proud, with their impecable professionalism and glorious voices. They met their fans with courtesy and love, they did lots of interviews and patiently answered all the same questions in English, Spanish and Italian with good humor, remember? They were simply IL VOLO, three special young men that we are so proud of for their soaring voices and unique personalities!! We all remember that!!!
Best memory of all? starting this site “Il Volo Flight Crew~Share The Love” at the beginning of August. We all never cease to be amazed how we took off, soaring like Il Volo and how all of you have made this site what it is today in 5 short months, incredible!!!!!
Gianluca, Gianluca has been prolific with his tweets, here are a few of them: On the 25th, “Goodnight, hope you had an amazing Christmas with your families, from your GG” On the 26th, “When I care about someone I really care” On the 28th, “I just shaved my beard off” and today, “I need to go to the gym NOW, getting weight!!!”
Piero, On the 26th, “I’ve been 3 days at home with my beautiful family, had the best time”, Yesterday, “Sicilian desserts” with photo of some amazing looking pastries!
Ignazio, Our ignazio is a bit more communicative on his off time this year, “On the 25th with photo, “Ready to go out” 28th, “I’m feeling little sad” 29th ” Waking up and feeling happier”

We’ve had a good year here, sometimes we disagreed, sometimes we had little arguments but none of us ever wavered in our love for Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca. We have supported “Our Boys” and each other through thick and thin. We expressed our love and admiration and wandered all over the net to get any glimpse and hear any song.
To Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, we wish you a Happy, Healthy New Year. We wish you success and happiness wherever you travel to next year. Keep your families close and stay humble.
To all of you, Happy and Healthy 2014!!! I hope you haven’t missed much!!
