Yay! Yippie! Hooray!

Well Ladies, I think it’s time we tell our fellow Crew members who the luckiest women on the planet are next to our pal’s just coming back from Italy (that trip continued soon)!!

Several of us are going to that Dinner in Detroit with the Boys on July 6th!! (Hard to type while dancing!)

I don’t think any of us have slept since we scored tickets a couple of weeks ago. It’s doubtful we will sleep until sometime after July 6th. “We” are – Jana, Mary B., Jane (maryjane), Allene, Suzy and myself. There are also about 10 others we know who will be there.

Since you are already green with envy, I may as well tell you what we know of the agenda. ย There will be 25 couples and according to the invitation, “This special ‘Wine & Dine’ evening includes Dinner, Meet & Greet/Photos with Il Volo and a Studio Experience โ€“ watch from our studios as the guys pledge their new show across metro Detroitโ€ฆ live!”

Can’t seem to stop Jana from jumping up and down. She has never touched them, but plans to do that very thing, that very night. I might touch one or two of them myself! Sure!

We will be wearing our Flight Crew badges/lanyards so the Boys will be sure to know we are bringing you all with us.

We’re thinking it will be as close to Pompeii and the Guys as we’re ever going to get… Or was that as close to heaven…?

We all feel pretty much like this:

  1. I live in Detroit and I can’t believe I didn’t know anything about this. I’m SO ENVIOUS! We go out of town a lot and I guess I miss some important stuff. Enjoy the boys (altho they aren’t boys anymore). Touch Piero for me. Oh heck, might as well kiss him too.
    I hope they come back to do a concert. I never miss those.

    1. I’d be glad to touch (and kiss) Piero for you, Barb…wish me luck….oh, that’s right, I’m already one of the luckiest women in the world!!


    1. His security probably has a picture of me and you want me to go at him with scissors? Gina, how much are you putting aside for my legal defense?

      1. Grab him in a big hug while holding a small scissor in you palm and just snip a lock from the back. I will find your a good public defender.

  3. I’m so jealous too how fantastic is that going to be. Please tell them I’ll be in Verona with more Love for them, and then to Milan during fashion week. Iwant to be in Detroit

  4. Okay ladies, I just want to let it be known I am officially jealous… I wish I could be sitting right there beside all of you… But since I can’t will someone please give Gianluca a kiss for me and tell him it is from his granny fan Jeannette… I know he will miss me not being there to give him hugs and kisses… Hmmm, maybe it’s the other way around, me missing him!!! All kidding aside, have a great time, take lots of pictures and be sure to let all three know that they are our Grande Amore…

      1. And not at all for yourself? Hmmmmm. Don’t know if I believe THAT one!

  5. Congrats ladies I’m thrilled for all of you just keep in touch with all of us and please let the guys know we all love them as much as you do. Try and give Piero a kiss for me.

  6. Is Detroit in heaven??? I think so. I,m glad you guys are rich enough to do this. Us pore folks have to have the left overs. Just kidding. We are all envious. However they will know we are there with you since you will be wearing the badges. Hug Piero for me. Joanie G

    1. Let’s see, thats hugs and kisses for Piero from Joanie G. Lucky Lady and Barbara—can I handle that? It will be tough, but I’ll give it my best. The things I do for my Flight Crew friends.

      1. If it gets too tough, I’ll help. I already set the DVR to record on Monday, so I’m available.

      2. I love all three so
        give them a kiss
        and hug for me.
        Gianluca, He’s
        a doll and I
        love his voice
        and perform-
        ance. He’s so

  7. HAPPY !! HAPPY !!! HAPPY !!! for all of you lucky ducks !! Give them all a kiss from Grannie Groupie Joan !!! I only got to see one in Italy ( although he is THE ONE for me !!!) and you get to see all three !!! I know how you all feel !! ( especially Jana who is meeting them for the first time !!!). No sleep for any of you for the next five nights !! Can’t wait to see photos and videos !!! Have a blast !!!

  8. Well, Marie! Now you’ve done it! The only way you can redeem yourself is if I can be put in one of those shrink machines so you can wear ME around your neck to the party of the year!! Love and envy, Dot in Texas!

  9. Dear ladies,
    enjoy the time that you spend in the company of our dear boys ! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wholeheartedly wish you to experience the most memorable and beautiful moments, to have wonderful memories full of grande amore. ๐Ÿ™‚ I believe you will certainly take nice pictures and you share them with us. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I wish you a lovely adventure full of beautiful music, angelic singing with an abundant love by Il Volo. I believe and I wish you to have opportunity ( all of you ) to hug and kiss Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca and to deliver the sincere greetings from all female fans from Il Volo Flight Crew. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck, ladies ! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. WELL DANG IT That is news that could sink a pirate ship! But nahhhhh, its all good. I’d rather there be a group of Flight Crew scallywags at this dinner to spy, i mean, enjoy the evening with our guys, than to have us all miss it. I don’t know how you pulled this off but I truly am thrilled for y’all…..Kiss and hug my ThunderBarone for me!

      1. Okay Pirate, I’ll force myself to get one in for you. Don’t know how many I can handle before fainting with pure pleasure.

  11. Yes it most certainly be will be a night to remember. Especially since Mary B. and I will be kept busy giving hugs and kisses to Piero from all of you that requested we do so. But the first one will be from me! I can’t wait!!!

  12. If you get a chance you might ask them about the Las Vegas Il Volo Fan Faire project (I am curious if they have heard of it yet ). Envy is on my mind that is for sure. Would love to talk with them again.

  13. Oh indeed I am green with envy, but at the same … just overjoyed you “girls” are going to be there.ย  Want everyone of you to HUG and smooch up those sweet Il Volo guys for me and takeย LOTS of pics.ย  That’s only SIX days away!!ย  Oh my! ย  No need to say HAVE FUN, ’cause know you all will be in HEAVEN.

  14. How very fortunate for all of you! Give them hugs and kisses from all of us! Whisper in Ignazio’s ear that I have written a children’s book about them. I hope to find a publisher soon. It is called the Tale of the Three Singing Squirrels. As young teenage boys closely resemble squirrels in boy suits, I turned our wonderful boys into squirrels. It is about how they learned to sing as young teenagers and the antics that only young teenagers can create for themselves. It is a parody based upon themselves and their families.

  15. I am still not recovered from my strained muscles. Finally got some more medication for the pain! Hope I am now on the road to recovery!! To top this all off I find out the luckiest FC ladies in the world have tickets to the Detroit PBS Special!!! OMG, how are you staying anchored to the ground?!? It will be the best nite of your lives!!! I am so thrilled for you!!! Since there are 6 of you going, could someone give each of the guys a hug for my English friend, Marlene who has cancer & probably will not get to see them again. She loves all 3 but her true love is, who else, Ignazio!!! Sandi, your book sounds great!!! July 6th will be here before you know it. It will be Heaven!!!

    1. Anne, I am not staying anchored to the ground! I keep having to hold onto things.

      Still including Marlene in my prayers. You get well too!

      1. Thanks Marie for prayers! The Oncolojust told her yesterday to not give up hope! He is trying a new treatment starting yesterday! I feel a bit better today, hope it continues! Buonanotte tutto!!!

    1. I will do that. As soon as I am released from jail for trying to give them all the promised hugs and kisses. It’s ok…I’ll be smiling throughout the entire incarceration!

  16. Hello all! Sorry I am a little late in responding here, but I’ve been a bit busy planning all the final touches on day/s before their arrival….hair, nails, badge holders, dinner logistics, hotel, etc.!! Yes, I am very excited, but have been keeping busy, so the time is going pretty quickly actually. Trying to keep cool, as I will also be a volunteer in the phone bank for the pledge drive. They told us in an email to the volunteers that to be prepared, just in case they have to re-shoot the pledge breaks!! Wow, live TV! Wonder if the guys will do anything crazy!! Only one other person wants to give hugs to Ignazio? How nice, saving him for me and Marie! Lol! Yes, I’m sure touching Ignazio will be pure happiness along with some electricity! ๐Ÿ™‚ It is now July 4 – OMG just 48 hours from now and it will be all over!! We will only have 36 seconds with the guys and they will have a professional photographer there, so hope we can take our own pictures, too? Wish we could take you all with us! From Cinderella, “a dream is a wish your heart makes…” who says dreams don’t come true? This is certainly one dream of mine that will be coming true. I have been planning for this day since I left their concert last June 19. I didn’t know where; I didn’t know when, but I was going to be ready, and I am! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I know this is more than a dream come true for you and I’m so happy for you. Just sorry I did not call fast enough to get tickets. Enjoy every minute!!!!!

  17. Jana– I know how excited you are but try to zero in on every second that your with them and not get brain freeze like so many of us do. You’ll want to remember the entire encounter forever after !!! (Of course this is easier said then done !!!). I can’t wait to get feedback from all of you after this incredible evening with our precious guys !!!

  18. congratulations ladies ! I wish I could go with you. have a good time. I have one request. Is it possible for you to ask Barbara what exactly happened at the Rome concert ? A number of fans are upset with Piero for what happened between him and Ignazio. I’m not sure what this was myself but I have read comments about it. I don’t want to feel bad about any of these young men since I love all three. Please ignore this request if I am out of line.
    Myron , we’re waiting to hear about the Vegas convention.
    Ladies, enjoy! I’m eagerly waiting for your review. thanks a lot.

  19. Thank you Victoria.
    There are a few videos around that show what happened. Here is what I think I know. Ignazio played some prank on Piero. To get him back, on stage Piero came up behind Ignazio and hit him in the privates. I think he got him harder than he meant to or it was just an accident. This all happened in the middle of a song. Ignazio sat down on a step. Shook his head, took a breath and when it came to his part in the song he sang the first line or two in soprano. It really was hilarious! Ignazio didn’t SEEM angry, but of course, I don’t know for certain

    Don’t mean to rub it in, but in 24 hours I will be getting ready for dinner!!!

    1. Thanks Marie for this information. I did watch the video but it was fuzzy . I enjoyed Ignazio’s singing with that “soprano” voice. I could listen to him sing a whole song in that voice.
      Enjoy your dinner and time with the boys. Looking forward to your report of this event.

  20. Yippie !! Tomorrow is the day !!! No sleep for any of you tonight !!! My insides are doing flip flops of excitement for all of you because I know what you are feeling right now and how I felt when I was going to be able to hug and kiss them !!! As difficult as it may be try to keep your feet on the ground and not go into orbit !!! Have a blast (but don’t blast off !!) and we want to hear every last detail and see every gorgeous photo of your exciting Il Volo experience !!

  21. For many ladies from this community is tomorrow the big day ! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish therefore to all participants, enjoy every minute and spend a wonderful time in the company of angels from Il Volo, let this day turn out the way as you imagine it in your dreams, or even much better ! I noticed that you have to give a lot of hugs and kisses to guys from many members of II Volo Flight Crew. ๐Ÿ˜€ I do not know if I could add among the such large number of ladies. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I send ,at least remotely , to Piero, Ignazio, Gianluca a lot of sincere greetings, big hugs, kisses ! <3 <3 <3 :* :* :* I wonder if they remember me from Ask Eurovision : Question for Il Volo. ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Oh, I am so unhandy ๐Ÿ˜€ . I can not place in the my post “kiss smiley “.
