These are a few of the things we reported to you in our first year. How much do you remember? Answers below.
No, I don’t plan on using this picture in every post. Just leave me alone! Besides, it’s my best side. His too!
♥ August 9th was our proud startup. We held our breaths hoping some of you would follow. You all did!
♥ Paul Sorvino sang with the Boys in los Angeles. (thanks Anne)
♥ We were all up in arms about a newspaper review of Il Volo in Vancouver. “Opera is in trouble.” Complaints were followed by an “apology” from the editor. What was the name of that paper? How about the name of the author?
♥ North American Concert Tour – “We Are Love 2013”. We reported on all of them!
♥ Our Guys realized a dream come true this month. What was it?
♥♥ Happy Birthday Ignazio
♥ We reviewed the South American Tour this month. Screaming Senorita’s and all.
♥ We asked you to “Rock the Vote”. For what award?
♥ The Boys were back! We followed them to the Tree lighting at the Grove in L.A. and the CD signing in Santa Monica.
♥ Three of our Flight Crew members had a private audience with Il Volo at the Mall of America.
♥ We upgraded our blog to a dot-com. We became an actual website and registered our domain name!
♥ We reported a bunch of promotional appearances for their new album “Buon Natale”. Name at least one of the shows we told you about.
♥♥ I gave you “T’was the Night Before (my) Christmas” My favorite Poem. Probably because I ended up with the present!
♥ The Boys performed in Assisi. Where?
♥ Our Guys were on much deserved vacations.
♥ It was a slow month that’s why among other things we… began Gianluca’s Birthday Project, learned about Perry Como from Linda, began Michele’s “Italia” series, Told Kelly why we were smiling, Read about Power, Passion and Joy from Lijoy, brought you an RAI recap and I thanked you for “Flying with the Crew”.
♥ We also learned from Linda that one of our Guys sang at weddings to help pay for his music lessons. Who?
♥♥ Happy Birthday Gianluca!
♥ Toward the end of the month we were finally able to announce to you the long-awaited “2014 Summer Concert Tour” Schedule!
♥ Instead of performing Il Volo was happily in the audience. Where?
♥ Myron reported about speaking to Ignazio on the phone at his sisters Pizzeria.
♥ Il Volo held their first major concert of the year. Where?
♥ We watched Il Volo win the Latin Billboard Award for “Latin Pop Artist of the Year (Duo or Group)”. If you would like to, once again, see Gianluca’s best imitation of a Pogo Stick here’s the YouTube Video:
♥ On April 28th we reached a major milestone – one-quarter of a million views! How many countries were viewing?
♥ May was filled with promo’s in their home country.
♥ Ignazio got another tattoo. I reported that one!
♥ Michele showed us Photo’s taken by Piero while on an outing. Where?
♥♥One of my favorite things in May was their appearance on TLUC. My eyes filled with tears like the announcer and judges who knew them before they were the fabulous Il Volo! Plus the Boys looked hot! Here it is again for
my your viewing pleasure.
♥ The 2014 Summer Concert Tour – Finally!
♥ Piero’s Birthday
♥ You told us your wonderful concert experiences.
♥ Bless their hearts, Two of our Flight Crew Members purchased and presented a Birthday cake to Piero from all of us. Who performed that selfless deed?
♥ The Boys sang to a full house in Taormina – twice!
♥ Ignazio wrote, “When a woman says not is NOT.” Who did he give this sage advice to?
