Once again, I sit before a blank page, wondering what will appear from my fingertips? Three more beautiful concerts, gone in a flash. They made the ancient stage come alive once more. Sicily – home to Piero and Ignazio. A special feeling for them. As in the picture below, they say they sang their first concert in Italy from that stage. It was there that Italy first heard, live, the beautiful words of “Memory” sung by Ignazio, Gian’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and Piero’s “No Puede Ser.” In those moments, Italy finally knew what they had been missing; what the Americans already knew! They are greeted by friends and family wherever they go, but home is always a special place. As you watch the many videos and pictures that came through, there was no doubt that Piero and Ignazio were having a grande time. Even Ginaluca joined in the fun on occasion! I was fortunate to hear a little bit of the June 1 & 3 concert live, thanks to Ivolomusic on Instagram, however, they did not seem to do it for the last concert – but I was home, ready and waiting! I heard Piero’s solo and Tonight from Ignazio and a few others. Glorious as always. The same, yet different. The stage and the lighting there was beautiful, as only Taormina and the Teatro Antica can be. So, here we are with some clips and pictures of some of those glorious nights. I apologize, I might not know which night is which, but the video usually indicates it. Credit to all owners.
This picture below from Il Volo music – they say “our first concert was on this stage!”
Picture above…. saying goodbye to Taormina… (wonder if Igna had been having some bad hair days? He seems to be wearing this Madrid cap in many photos!)
Look at the beauty and lights of that backdrop below!
Ok, don’t know how they do it, but it looks like this is a good portion of most of the concert! June 1, 2017 Enjoy!
And this, the guys having a little fun in the streets! Note Maria Grazia filming with her phone… 🙂 Dani/Daniela, or if anyone can translate what they are singing or saying, that would be fun! It seems like it’s impromptu?
One more thing to add that I thought was pretty cool, if you missed it. This is from Il Volo Music’s FaceBook page. I think you can actually hear the orchestra flub a bit! If you keep watching the videos, there are some really great ones! (Watch for Piero in his dressing room in the 2nd one… 😉 ) Hope the link works!
Yes, 3 more down and still many more to come! The guys do get a bit of a break, but are then off to Malta on June 8!
Just a little side note….don’t know how many have noticed, but our Il Volo Flight Crew Instagram account has been deactivated. I hear this has been going around, as well as some getting their virtual hands slapped by FaceBook. Please be cautious out there on what you post. I don’t know how they are making these decisions, but I know a few of our crew members have been affected by it.
Also a special shout-out to Jane & Daniela for keeping this site at a cruising altitude…. 🙂
