“Who’s Going Where List” – Take #3

December 14, 2015


Wow!  The last time we posted this list it was September.  Time is flying!  In just a little over two months we will be face to face with you know who, you know who, you know who and each other.  We’re starting to get really excited!


Notes from Myron:

The committee of the Las Vegas Il Volo Fan Faire is happy to state that we are very near the capacity of the ballroom contract that we signed last fall.  Out of over 100 plus spaces we only have (roughly) 15 spaces left.  We would love to see this program filled so we can take even more fans for this Fan Faire.   Ever since Jeannette and I met with Barbara Vitali and Gianluca last month, discussed details and found out that she is very much going to work it so that the guys come to our program (I hate to call it a meet and greet because it will be different and more relaxed – however, you will definitely be able to meet each one of them and you will be able to greet each one and maybe even have time for some fun ? ?  ! !  ? ) 

Most everyone that has registered has paid and I would like to be so bold as to “gently nudge” anyone that has not to pay on the bill.  We have to keep the over-all bill paid on time on this end.

I must say that we’ve recieved so many emails sharing the excitement in anticipation of March 25 – It inspires us to work all the harder.

Reminder:  I hope that everyone who can come here will get tickets for the concert.  Tickets run from $46.  to $153. depending on the location.   We have nothing to do with promoting the concert (just our Fan Faire) but we really want this concert to be SOLD OUT !   It took a lot of pushing to get them here and we want the whole experience to be very successful.  I figure it this way: if they are happy it shows in their performance and then we are happy.  Also, if we are happy then they are happy and they WANT  to do it again.



Requests – if you would like to contact any of the people below let us know at ilvoloflightcrw@outlook.com or on the left side of this page under “The Flight Crew Board – Contact Us

Name: Kathi
    Last year at Saratoga Winery, I sat behind a row of members of your group. I’m going to the concert in San Jose CA, March 29, 2016. Is there any way I can go with your group? I would love to be part of your “party”. Kathi.

  1. Great list. Once 2016 strikes I will really start feeling excited. My first concert and “Meet & Greet”. Working on my approach to the “Ignazio hug.”
    I am sending messages to the MAN upstairs that just for once Dallas does not have Ice during that week in March.We have to travel 100 miles to get to my youngest daughter’s house and concert.

  2. Please remove my name from Wallingford Conn. concert. I am not going there. Instead, I am going to Hershey, PA concert on Feb 23. Thanks.

  3. Hello Myron, I had registered for the March event earlier. I will send in my check today and sorry for the delay. I have my ticket for LV and will also be attending the Barclay concert and the Easton, PA concert as well. Thanks, again, to you and the Fiight Crew for putting this together. Valerie D’Antonio

    1. We look forward to meeting you Valerie, thank you for the update… March 25th will be a very special night at the Palms Hotel with our very special guys… “Il Volo” and our Fan Faire with the Il Volo family of fans…

  4. My husband Luis and my friends Rene and Carmen are coming with me to Austin on March 16. I am trying to convince my boss to let me go to LV on the 23!

      1. (Sigh!!!) Hope it is soon! I don’t know if my excitement to be there is because of our boys or because of you, Marie! I am your fan!

      2. Marie – don’t think that “Emilia” is our “cupcake….” 🙂 this one is married? lol!

      3. Well, the Emilia Cupcake I thought you were is around 17.

        The fact that I don’t know you makes it even more important for you to come to Vegas.

        P.S. I will still call your boss!

      4. Can I still be a Cupcake even if I am married? There is nothing wrong with married cupcakes, you know…

  5. Marie, if you choose to update your list of who’s going where, please add me to two more concerts… I will be going to the Concert in Detroit, and the last concert in Temecula at the Pachenga Casino and hotel…

      1. Oh yeah, we will be all together, the entire crazy group…I am as excited about going to Detroit as I am about our Las Vegas convention… I am one lucky Il Volo Lover this year…

  6. I’M HAVING A MELTDOWN! I can’t stand that I’ll miss Vegas! And all of you and of course, Il Volo! I want all of you to know this right NOW!!
    On another note. On several of the Il Volo Facebook pages such as AAIV there are photos of Gianluca in the pool at Gran Sasso Resort and Spa! Just a beautiful place! (and of course GG) Check out at
    http://www.hotelregiopiano.it for a great tour of the property, especially the pools!!

    1. Lynn K., when I saw the list of people attending the Las Vegas concert, I wanted to cry! I want to be there so very much, but 2 concerts are not in my budget time-wise or financially. I also want to meet all the Flight Crew members who I feel like I know from reading their comments here. But I am very grateful IL VOLO is coming to New Orleans & I get to attend a M & G also.

      Marie, please add some of my family members to the list of those attending the New Orleans concert: my husband Ron, my sister Carrie, & my Mom Lorraine. I tried to contact Carol Mason by email, but I did not receive a reply. Carol, if you are still going, please reply to the new email I am going to send to you.

      1. Marie and/or Lynn
        Received your note Lynn via Marie. I lost your email address please email me directly and include your email address. Or maybe Marie can send it to me. By the way, maybe Marie can send you mine if you have lost it also.

        To answer your question, yes Judi and I will be attending the concert in New Orleans. It is our second concert and we are very excited to see them live again. We will be looking forward to meeting you and your family.

        Thank you again Marie, you are great. I know you have much more to do than keeping us fans connected. Thanks for all the effort you and your staff put in daily. Love to you all,

  7. 3 Generations will be attending the Palace Theater, Albany NY on Feb. 16 Please add our names to your list….Karen St.Germain, Laura St.Germain and Anna St.Germain…..CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!

    1. Karen St Germain! Finally! Somebody else going to the Albany concert! I’m ecstatic! Let’s get in contact. Marie, pretty please could you send Karen my email? I promise I’ll be good if you will?! (I can’t give up beating up on the parrot, though!)

  8. A moment of insanity occurred one night so now Deborah Beaupre and myself are going to the Washington DC concert February 19th with Maria Leps and Madeline Vitella !!! The Granny Groupies will be united once again and storming the Kennedy Center !!! We are all very excited to be together again for this concert and M&G !!
    This is definitely my year !! Five concerts !! Four M&G’s !! Crazy !!! 😜 The most exciting part of this entire experience ( besides seeng our guys which goes without saying !!) is being able to meet so many people in our Il Volo community in person and seeing others again that I have met before !! My life certainly did change for the better when I discovered Il Volo and all of you wonderful Ilvolovers !!!

    1. I received your information and will add Bill MCIntosh and Thomas Haack to the registration … You can contact us directly at IlVolo2LV@outlook.com… I do have your registration already… Thank you for being a big Il Volo fan… I look forward to seeing you and your friends in Las Vegas…

  9. Hi, Marie. Unfortunately I cannot attend the concert at the Dolby in Los Angeles. But at least I still have very vivid memories from last year at the Greek Theater. Maybe next year I can go and see my “dimples” and maybe someday meet you and enjoy your great wit! Thanks, Victoria

    1. Sorry you’re unable to attend, Victoria. At least you have had the privilege of seeing them in person. However, I am not sorry that one less person is after my dimples. I’ll hang on to him an extra few seconds only for you (ahem!). Maybe next year you can do it yourself.

  10. WILD DAY ON THE FLIGHT CREW BLOG! And it’s not over yet! Marie, Myron and Jeannette deserve a big Thank You and a round of applause for spending the day coordinating details for Las Vegas!
    Good thing Marie is head Flight Controller!! This is a wild bunch for sure!!

    1. And me without a pilot license. What a bunch of brave people you are!

      Applause goes to Myron and Jeannette for all the planning. I don’t even know the itinerary.

      1. The itinerary is listed on our Website Marie… Not to worry, it will be a night to remember for sure…

      2. Note: As I wrote a couple of weeks ago, Il Volo is now planning to attend our function BUT they do not know what time and will not know until closer to the event (we should know in early February). If it is late or early or mid-afternoon depends on their time of arrival from Phoenix and it depends on the sound check rehearsal. But since all of this is in the same building it will not be a problem to have them come up and see us. The Theatre is on ground level and our ballroom (called “The View” ) is on top of the building on the 52nd floor. Direct elevator from the stage area to us and also two from casino to us. It is easy.
        Anyway, My point it that our highest priority is getting the boys to us for about an hour or two so therefore we want to make it easy and flexible for them. All of us are there anyway.

        We should have a fixed schedule by early February.

    2. 👏👏👏👏!!!!! Thank you guys for all your hard work. We all appreciate you so much. I, for one, can hardly contain my excitement, not only to be able to see our guys once again, but on meeting many of you in Las Vegas. You all have contributed to my happiness day in and day out with your unending wit. Finally, on 3/25/16, I will be able to put the faces to all the ladies with wonderful sense of humor. I will be celebrating my 70th birthday on March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day) 8 days before my best bday gift from my family (LAS
      VEGAS),. MARIE, MYRON, JEANNETTE, would you be so kind as to once again tell me what time the
      FAN FAIR starts and where it is to take place? I want to get there early so as not miss anything. I will be staying at the RIO HOTEL & CASINO across the street. Thank you all again for all you do for us.

      1. First let me say, we are happy that you will be meeting so many of the Il Volo Flight Crew at the Fan Faire, we look forward to meeting you as well… At this time we expect to have the doors open to the Fan Faire at 4 PM… Things could possibly change by March 25, 2016, if so we will announce any changes to our plan on our website… So please book mark the website and check back before the the Fan Faire and Concert for any changes…


  11. Miu and I are planning on meeting for dinner before the Washington DC Concert on Feb 19th. Happy to meet a few more crew members if they want to join us. Let me know if you are interested and we will figure out a way to exchange e-mails.

  12. Is the meet and greet usually before or after the concert. I am going to March 11 Atlanta concert. Thank Janay

  13. John from CT will be attending on
    February 12, 2016, Wallingford, CT, USA, Toyota Oakdale Theater
    along with five friends and coworkers.

    1. Got you in there John. Have a blast!

      Looks like Montreal, QC is the only North American Il Volo concert in 2016 where a member of the Flight Crew will be missing. So far anyhow!

  14. Montreal is the same distance from me as Albany is! I chose Albany because I’ll stay over nite there and the hotel is two blocks from the concert venue. If I ‘d decided on Montreal I would have a huge hassle with parking and traffic plus driving back through some pretty desolate countryside really late at nite once I left Canada. Then there is also the border checks going and coming which are usually backed up to kingdom come! And the weather! We could have blizzards, ice etc. So, I erred on the side of caution and convenience and decided on Albany! Penina is sort of in the same boat. She lives in Canada but she has a long drive in iffy conditions to get to Orillia and back! Good luck her! Good luck me ! We could get dumped on and I’d have to get a dog sled to get to Albany! Anything for our beloved Il Volo!!

    1. Marie, one of the Annies told me she was going to the Orilla concert with her daughter. Annie Hatfield? Sorry if I got the wrong one. I don’t have access to my computer over here so I may be mistaken as to who it is.

      1. “Over here?”. I guess I thought you were home now. Please be safe in your travels. Things are always “on edge” there in Israel. I still pray for the children. Say hello to Laia for me.

        I’ll check with Annie on the Orilla Concert.

      2. Not home for 2 more weeks. Does anyone know how far Ft Myers is from Boca Raton?

  15. I’m going to the Cleveland concert with my friend, Kathy. We went to the last concert in Cleveland and the concert in Pittsburgh. I met you, Marie, in Pittsburgh. I would love to go to LV, but my health won’t allow it. I wish you all loads of fun.

    1. I remember meeting you June! Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Detroit are all close but are for non winter months for me. Got you on the list now. See you next concert season!

  16. Marie, I have 2 extra tickets to the San Antonio concert! They are on the 4th row, orchestra! I ordered them and then realized it did include M &G! I’ll make some one a good deal! I so want a sell out crowd! I am on fb and messanger or by email at : granddots@gmail.com! I am so invious of the group going to LV! I’d be there but circumstances prevent it! I know youall are going to have a super time! Please send us all the details…what happens in Vegas DOES NOT necessarily have to stay in Vegas! There are exceptions! Love ya’ll! Dot in Texas!

    1. Hey Dot, If you do not get a response to your offer let me know. I have saved your comment and will run it again at a later date.

      Also, we have run into this twice so far. In both cases the venue/PBS station took the tickets back and allowed a refund.

      1. Marie, I got them thru Ticket master and they will not refund! I’ll let you know if anyone contacts me! Thanks for the help! Dot!

  17. It will be a very special night on March 25, 2016… The Fan Faire is building up to be a very special event… When Myron and I met Gianluca and we shared the information we had about the Fan Faire Convention, he was so excited… He kept hugging us and thanking us for doing such a special event for him and Ignazio and Piero… If you plan on going to the concert and have not yet registered for the Fan Faire, please think about doing so… We would enjoy having a big turn out for Il Volo and we would love meeting you as well… The event is $100 per person and is a great prelude to the concert… You can be sure to have a great time meeting your Il Volo Family from the Flight Crew…
    Thank you Marie and Kelly for your support… Thank you all who have registered for the Fan Convention, we know Il Volo is very happy to have your support as are we…
    To Register, email us at: IlVolo2LV@outlook.com
    For more information please visit our website at:
    Thank you all

    1. As noted above, if Il Volo needs to we may have to start earlier but we will know by next month so that everyone will be able to plan,

    2. Jeannette, perfectly put. Thanks to all who help.

      I do hope that everyone understands about the starting schedule time. 4:00pm is what we listed for the benefit of the hotel but they are willing to be flexible and they know that we must wait until we get final word from Il Volo. It may seem that Jeannette and I have been giving you different information but that is not the case.

  18. So much excitement as we plan for these concerts. I’m still planning to bring a new Il Volo appreciator, my friend Dorothy, to the Chicago Theater concert Feb.26. We’ve a tight schedule so don’t know if I’ll get to meet any of you, but I’ll hope for happy accidents 😉

      1. Thanks, Marie. My friend, Dorothy, has a situation that will prevent her from going to this concert. I’m looking for another Ilvolover who might be able to use her seat at the Chicago Theater Feb.26. Details were in another email or I can be reached at lois_hartwig@yahoo.com if someone is interested. Thanks.
