People Who Take Drugs are Stupid

Translation (provided by <3 IL Volo <3 Pittsburgh fan club Facebook):

The wait is over and the tenth edition of the International Chihuahua Festival began today with a press conference with Il Volo, the great trio of young Italians, who said they were happy to be the ones who will open this great festival.

They said that Mexico is a great country and that it is one of the countries where they most want to share their culture, their music with their fans there.

Also, they said that they felt that young people are not the future but that they are the present world, and there is not much difference between the young people there than in their native country, Italy.

They said they have never tried drugs, and that that is for “stupid” people and that the only “drug” for them is music, something they enjoy doing, which shows with their songs and when they are on stage.

They further said that having money and fame at such a young age is a great responsibility, because now their lives are public, and everything they do is captured on camera. They enjoy their lives but reiterated that it is a great commitment, because they are an example for other young people.

Il Volo consists of three male Italian singers: Piero Barone , Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, who sing classic songs, as well as pop songs, in Spanish, English, French, German and Italian.

The trio was formed after they participated as three individual singers in the second edition of the Rai 1 talent show Ti Lascio Una Canzone in 2009. They are the first band of Italian origin to sign a contract directly with a major U. S. record company, Geffen Records, part of Universal Music Group.

Beginning promptly at 8 PM tonight in the Plaza Mayor they will be giving a great show. The concert is free and will inaugurate the tenth edition of the International Chihuahua Festival.

  1. Well Kelly, I finished reading/watching this post. It’s wonderful. Know what I noticed? Your 1st picture has Piero in an “Undercover” t-shirt. In the same picture you can clearly see Ignazio’s “Born to Rock” tattoo. During the press conference Ignazio is wearing an “ALOHA” hat. Then in a later picture there’s Piero with a Mickey Mouse shirt. They may be Italian. They may have been in Mexico – BUT all those words are English. I know where their hearts live. Right down the street from me!

  2. Thanks for the pics, etc. I doubt there was much actual chill in in Mexico! Its pretty warm there this time of the year and I’m sure Il Volo warmed it up even more! Its great to be able to keep up with our “boys” she we can’t be there! They always put on a good show, no matter what!!!Love them!!!

  3. Superb, Kelly!! Love to see the guys wearing American memorabilia! Can’t wait for them to return to American soil! 🙂 Just keeps getting better and better. Are we not the lucky ones to have them in our lives? 🙂

  4. Great job Kelly (as usual). that interview with the boys just confirms to me what a wonderful gift they are to this generation (and the older generation too). they are going to have major influence for the good on the young ones who see them, they are going to change this world for the better! every time they open their mouths I admire them more. thank you God for giving the world these three hero’s
