Our Guys In Pompeii

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: 

Magnificent concert of Il Volo in Pompeii

Il Volo concert - PompeiiOn the scenery full of feelings and memories of the ruins of Pompeii the music snatched the thoughts and hearts.

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.

Il Volo concert - PompeiiThe 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.

  5. They did perform it on Porta a Porta–the Italian program. I hope they sang all of the songs on their newest EP.

  6. A great review of the Pompeii concert Marie, we can always count on you and Kelly to keep us well informed about our greatest love… Il Volo… They are starting their Summer Concert Tour and I know that will keep you and Kelly very busy keep us up to date on all things Il Volo… So I just want to say thanks to you both in advance for all you do for us Il Volo Lovers all over the world that read The Flight Crew Blog…

  7. Thank you Marie and Kelly, I can’t wait to see them on TV on one of our PBS stations. I hope they will put a DVD out of their concerts. I play their Sanremo CD and I never get tired of listening to it. I always want to hear more. I listened to one of their older CD’s and you can hear a very big difference in their voices and how they have matured at this age. Imagine what they will sound like as they get a little older. They are so loved by all and can’t wait to see them at a concert in the U.S.!!!
    Thanks for updating us and I am very jealous that you are both in Italy and I am not. <3
