Note: Kelly just sent me a picture, on my phone, of her computer. I don’t think that big hole belongs there. She tripped over her cat. Until she gets back on the net I have to direct you to our affiliates, All About Il Volo and All Things Il Volo for concert pic’s and video’s. As you know they are both always on top with concert followup. Kelly sends her apologies. I don’t think she killed the cat. ~M
IL VOLO’S FLIP SIDE? ORNERY, but absolute PROS!
I sometimes refer to Il Volo’s concerts as “pause/play” events, because they have this wonderfully free and natural ability of manipulating, (in a good way), the emotions of their audiences, by masterfully combining beauty, with youthful joy. The beauty of their voices in song, causes you to“pause” and drink it in, while their youthful on or off stage antics and interaction, invites the “play”; changing the atmosphere, keeping up the element of surprise, and the anticipation of what might happen next,… hence, keeping also the control. Assessing their audience. “Pause/Play”. Two hours later, you leave thoroughly entertained, mentally lightened, and feeling something close to euphoric! You, have just experienced, the charisma of IL VOLO! Keeping this in mind, I think that if you watch closely, you can see also, that this same type of thing occurs on a smaller, but none the less effective scale, with interviews, press conferences etc. Have you ever seen them lose control of any situation? If, for whatever reason, there happens to be a lull, or awkward moment, one or the other of them will do or say something to distract; like Ignazio’s commandeering of Piero’s water, right in front of the press. “Pause/Play”. It’s just who they are, and it’s amazing to watch; unless of course you happen to be the interviewer! “Pause/play” can change things in a moment, so don’t get too comfortable! … It’s kind-a like being in Italy, and courageously deciding to go into an Italian restaurant for dinner. One minute your wrestling your spaghetti into submission, and your’re really feeling you’re handling things quite nicely. Ahhh! I did it! Feeling very proud of yourself, you sit back to enjoy your wine. OF COURSE, there’s wine! Suddenly, in just the next minute, you feel a tap-tap, on your shoulder. You turn around, and you see a VERY attractive Italian gentleman standing beside you. WOW! He leans down, ……takes your hand in his, …..and in his VERY sexy voice, he says, “MI SCUSI SIGNORA, LO RIPORTARE IL POLPETTA, SI?”( “I bring back your meatball, yes?” ) …… Ohooo, the pain of it all!??
“Il Volo can suddenly bring you back from peaceful bliss, to the craziest of antics, in a split second. No matter where they are, or what you might be expecting from them, don’t count on it! Just like with the “escapee meatball”, you just never know!! Take a look...”Ready?”Enjoy!
