Note from Jana for DETROIT concert goers:
Just FYI – for those attending the Sat, Feb 27 show at the Detroit Fox Theatre…
I just talked to someone that is a regular usher at the Fox and they are ushering the night of the Il Volo concert. She gave me some additional info on what to expect, etc. She said you can bring in a bag or purse to carry.
They will have merchandise to purchase – Il Volo has come out with some new things – t-shirts, mugs, pins, etc. So, you can put them in one of your bags, not sure if they will hand out bags? I imagine, so? You can bring your cell phone/camera, as we know Il Volo allows pictures. She said of course nothing professional/recording devices. She said the ushers do not take things away from you, unless they are abused, but they will ask you to put them away, if necessary. She said 7p is a good time to get there, but they won’t necessarily open the doors to the actual seating area at 7p. Likely, it’s about a half hour before, maybe around 7:30p, but she said there is no set time.
You will be ushered to your seat, if you have the more front rows/orchestra pit area. You can mill around and go up to the mezzanine, to look around, but be sure to take your ticket with you, in case someone asks. Just tell them you are looking and tell them you have tickets on the main floor, etc. She said to be sure not to get in the “line” for seating if you are looking around, or you will get stuck there – just go around. She says you can take pictures before the concert starts. There is also an elevator to get to the mezzanine. Doesn’t sound like security will be a big deal, but of course they will do a bag/purse check. We will need to mill around the back lobby area until the actual theatre doors open. I’m still planning on taking just my phone/camera/wallet thing. Not sure if I will buy anything or not. I want to be “object free” to stand and clap and not have to worry about anything falling or dropping, or losing anything!
Not sure what kind of line there will be at the “will call” so if your tickets are at will call, may want to be sure to get there early. 🙂 see you all there!
Let me “Show you a good thing”. Get up and dance! ~Marie
A note from the Las Vegas Fan Faire Folk:
I want to thank all of you on the Fight Crew Blog who have chosen not only to come to The Il Volo Concert but also chose to attend the first ever Il Volo Fan Faire Convention at the Palms Hotel and Casino here in Las Vegas… Your participation will help make our goal of having fans in one place to honor Il Volo a success… We have reached our attendance goal, but we always have room for more… So if any of you would like to join our Fan Faire Convention, please email us atIlVolo@LV@outlook.com…
Remember that we want all of Il Volo’s concerts to be sold out concerts and we have almost reached that goal at the Pearl theater at the Palms Hotel and Casino… So if you decide to see Il Volo and come to the fan convention, make your decision soon as the seats at the concert are almost sold out…
Thank you and see you soon.
Please update me, in comments, if I have it wrong or your name is missing. It will live over there on your right under “Topics”.
For the most reliable dates and times for an IL VOLO CONCERT call your local Ticketmaster, Venue or PBS station.
EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT TIME!
