This picture is posted on Il Volo website earlier and it officially confirmed that our guys are in China.
There is also this confirmation from GG on his Instragram. It looks like they are off to a great start with greetings from beautiful young girls (Lol!).
Our guys mentioned that they will appear on a TV show to start the Chinese New Year (aka Spring Festival) celebration. I am not too familiar with the TV program in China but I think most celebration show is aired on New Year eve. Chinese Central TV is the official and main TV station in China and its main program to celebrate Chinese New Year is the “Chinese New Year Gala”. According to Wikipedia this is the most watched television program in the world with average of over 700 million viewers. However, this show is supposed to air live on New Year’s Eve which for this year is on February 18. We know our guys will only stay for a week so if they would appear on this show it must be prerecorded. Anyway I think it doesn’t matter which program they will appear on because one thing for sure is they will attract millions of new fans. It’s about time to spread the most beautiful voices to the world most populated country!
By the time this post is up it should be morning in Beijing. From the official photo we know they have been to the world largest square – Tiananmen Square. Here are my list of places and things that I think its worth for them to do while they are there:
Visit the Great Wall (need no introduction, who doesn’t know about the Great Wall!)
Visit the Forbidden City (largest ancient palatial structure and one of the five most important palaces in the world)
Watch Beijing opera (one of the most important aspects of Chinese culture in art and music, also it has a lot of familiarity with Italian opera)
Eat Peking duck (simply yummy!)
