Welcome to 2017!



Will we see more fun like this in 2017?

“Without You” –ย  We won’t be without Il Voloย in 2017, 2018, 2019….!


“Momma”ย – ย So funny!ย  Fortunately for us the Guys will never be “head-bangers” this year or any year.ย  Ignazio and Gianluca, be careful straining your voices here! ย Tell ’em Piero.


“Somebody to Love” – This song was originally done by “Queen”, but these are the KINGS this year and every year!ย  I simply adore this! ย Think they were having fun?

Can’t wait to find out what new and exciting things are waiting for Gianluca, Ignazio, Piero and us in 2017!

Have a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year, everyone!ย

    Marie, which starts crackling with these three beautiful videos.
    WHITOUT YOU is a beautiful song also sung in Catalan, you know that in this transmission The Maratรฒ (charity) IL VOLO had the golden spike as a moment longer heard.
    MAMMA in this version is beautiful because it combines two styles, rock and classic.
    What about SOMEBODY TO LOVE I have been a fan of Queen, and I find that the boys were magnificent.
    If the year promises to be the start ….. we will have a busy year.


  2. HAPPY NEW FLIGH CREW what a wonderful way to start the day & the year by seeing the faces of the handsomest Il Volo singers & hearing their magnificent voices. I feel I have been blessed. Those songs are perfect.


  3. Happy New Year Flight Crew !!!!! 2017 is definitely going to be a banner year for Il Volo and Ilvolovers world wide !!! The boys are having the time of their lives and most likely surprised themselves this past year with their amazing and deversified achievements. They continue to knock our socks off everyday with their voices,travels, fun and family !! They share nonstop with their very loyal fans which is incredibly unusual for three young now famous young men …and we love it !!! I hope they grow everyday in their careers but stay the same in their beautiful, caring hearts !!! I wish you all a very Happy,Healthy,Peaceful and FUN 2017 !!!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

  4. OMG how wonderful !! I have never seen them like this before, just shows how versatile they are ,from opera to rock’n’roll. Looking forward to a great New Year with ‘the boys’. Cannot get enough of them and hope they travel safely thru the year. Happy New Year to one and all, at Flight Crew

  5. Thanks Marie and Kelly for all that do for us each year. This site has enriched my life wonderfully. Looking forward to another year of our boys in concert. Happy New Year my friends. Joanie G

  6. Dear Marie, Kelly, and members of The Flight Crew. I wish you all the best for 2017.
    I have followed Il Volo for only the past 2 years and oh what wonderful years they have been. They are the most talented, the most caring of young men. Every time I see them do something new I think it is the best they have ever done. But no, the best is yet to come as they grow and mature. They continue to amaze me with their versatility. House Party proved they can sing anything. And Ignazio, oh my, what can you say about this multifaceted young man. I love him to pieces. Sorry Marie, I just can’t help it. I know you are like his Momma bear.
    So, BUON ANNO everyone. Hoping to meet some of you somewhere in March. A special hello to Lydia and Danilla.

      1. Sorry Lydka, It autocorrected to Lydia. Shame on me for not catching it. The same for Daniella. I will be more careful from now on.

      2. Poor Lydka! Several of us can’t seem to control the auto correct. I have added Lydka to the dictionary and if I don’t pay close attention it still tries Lydia. I think sometimes it has a mind of its own. I have also apologized to Lydka.

      3. Marie, I swear I saw ” Lydka ” before I posted. But I have no excuse for misspelling Daniella. I have to sync my fingers, eyes and brain. Good New Years resolution.

    1. Happy New Year Rose Marie, I follow IL VOLO for only two years.
      Tonight, House Party is replicated on the channel, Mediaset Extra (for us digital terrestrial channel 34) at 21.10 hours Italian time.

    2. Rose Marie, it is ok. ๐Ÿ™‚ Lydia is my name, but for family, friends and people who know me, I am Lydka. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Thank you, Marie. What a wonderful way to begin a new year with happiness!

  8. Thanks for the great videos. It’s a wonderful way to start the New Year! It’s interesting that Ignazio posted a video from Monte Carlo saying they ended the year doing what they love most to do. I hope they always enjoy and love singing with each other and bringing their beautiful music to fans all over the world. They looked like they had so much fun on House Party and they were amazing! I don’t think there is anything they can’t do and do well. God bless Piero, Ignazio, Gianluca and all the flight crew members and their families with good health, love and joy this coming year!

  9. Hi Daniela, Ignazio has an Instagram of the guy’s singing at a club in Monaco.During the finale they were singing “Nessun Dorma” and the audience was waving white handkerchief’s at them. What is the significance of this? I figure it’s a European thing.
    Happy New Year to you and Beppe๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽ‰โค๏ธ

    1. Hello Jill, happy new year you too.
      I saw the video posted by Ignazio and I loved it.
      I honestly do not know the meaning of the towel swirled overhead, provided that there is a meaning.
      If you look carefully at the beginning it only does a person and I think it is a gesture of joy, immediately all people have copied the gesture, driven also by the music and the voices of the boys.
      To me it made me shudder, I enjoyed seeing a involved audience and not cold, I think even the guys did great pleasure.
      If anyone knows the meaning would be nice to explain it to us, but I think it was a spontaneous gesture of happiness.
      Attaching the video.


    2. Hi Jill,I think it was excellent idea director,lord of the front gave the order when the people waving scharves.It is an expression of the highest award achievements singers – even bigger than a standing ovation.
      Remember the Italian concerts 2014 and the light from a mobile phone at night ?Yes,in Europe it gratitude and admiration for the wonderful performance.Happy days Zdena.

      1. Zdena true, but they are not prepared things are spontaneous gestures of people who expresses his pleasure

  10. First, I would like to thank all of the members of the Flight Crew Family for yet another incredible year of all of us sharing the LOVE we feel for Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio. This has also been a year of mixed reviews for me.
    My son almost losing his life due to a diseased liver . However, while I sat waiting for “IL VOLO’s ” concert to start on 3/25/16 in Las Vegas, (They were a little late. It was 8:15 pm),I got texts from family that Mike just received his perfectly matched liver at 8:05 pm. That night was magical for me. Got to meet so many of the CREW and mingled with our guys before their concert. Marie was there to attest to my blubbering. Thank you Marie for your support. We had an addition to our large family. GREAT GRANDSON #3. Got sick but better now. I come to this site to get news of our boys and I leave HAPPY. I’m so happy to have all of you in my life as well as “IL VOLO” music. May this year be a better one than the previous one for some of us. I wish you all a HAPPY, HEALTHY, PROSPEROUS AND SAFE NEW YEAR. I LOVE YOU ALL.

  11. To All The Flight Crew: Thank you for all the information on the latest adventures of our “guys” in 2016 and for all the most interesting posts on ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นItaly be it food or travel throughout this beautiful country. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! May 2017 be another banner year for IL VOLO!!!

    1. Thank you, Annette. I wish the same for our Guys. The great thing is that a banner year for them is an automatic banner year for us! Aren’t we lucky?

  12. Hi There. I am very late in wishing you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! between my biscotti business and my full-time job I have been crazy busy but I am not complaining! I think it has been a year since you all let me join this amazing group where I don’t feel alone in my joy ! I wanted to share with all of you a little tid-bit. Mary (who works for me and with me) loves our boys too and each day we take the I-pod out and listen to Il Volo while we work. Even on the worse days, they make things bearable and give us a reason to smile. No one even asks us who we are listening to anymore, hahaha! I hope this new year brings you all good health, amazing happiness and lots of love.

  13. Thank you Marie and everyone who writes for The Flight Crew. I enjoy everything you do and am very appreciative. Keep doing your wonders for us fans of the magnificent IL Volo.
