Well, this morning I could write all of the magical things that happened at the PBS taping in Pompeii last night, but our affiliate, All About Il Volo did their/her usual good job so I’ll just repost it here:
The lucky people who could attend the special concert of Il Volo last night – the invited people or even who was there due to a happy circumstance – reported the same: they were suddenly taken to another world.
– I almost couldn’t breath! – said someone. And it is true. The time was discontinued and the magic took over. There aren’t enough adjectives to describe thePBS special concert recorded yesterday between 9pm and midnight in Pompeii.
As the event is prepared to be released on the Detroit Public Tv in July 6th, 2015 and, after this, to be broadcasted on many PBS stations all over US and Canada, there were few pictures and videos, all took by fans and by Il Volo staff. A nice preview and teaser for the debut of the special.
The concert opened with Grande Amore and followed bringing already known songs as Caruso and O Sole mio (the ending song) along with many new unreleased and cover songs. Among the others they sangRecuerdame (La Quinta Estación and Marc Anthony), Volare, Piove (Ciao Ciao Bambina) and the Spanish version of Grande Amore.
They did solo performances too! As he promised Piero Barone sang E lucevan le stelle, from the third act of Tosca (Puccini). An unbelievable performance according to our contact there: emotional, perfect in all senses.
Gianluca Ginoble sang Anema e Core, a song presented on the concerts in Italy last year but not in the American summer tour. A great performance.
Ignazio Boschetto melted all hearts with his interpretation of Unchained Melody (Ghost). He also sang Quando l’amore diventa poesia.
Il Volo also made a nice homage to Napoli with Ignazio singing Napule è (Pino Daniele) a capella. At the end, Il Volo invited the audience to their concert on July 4th, 2015 atPiazza del Plebiscito in Napoli. For sure we all can’t wait to watch this special and we hope it will be soon on DVD.
