Hello folks! I had planned something else for today, but my plans changed, so I thought I’d go back and find an old post. This post had 126 comments!! This was written by, I believe, Linda, one of the “foundresses” of this site with Marie. The comments are amazing. A few of you are still out there commenting – Loretta, Myron, Kelly, Allene, and several others I recognize, and many I don’t, and many that we haven’t seen for quite a while! Enjoy – it will take most of your morning to read through this – it’s over 7000 words! 🙂
(there are no pictures, but it looks like people had put links to various sites, as they were referencing articles and interviews, etc. Take a look and see what you might find. It is interesting to see these comments and see how much as come “true” 🙂 – what things have changed and what has stayed the same!)
The John Saroyan Theatre at the beautiful Fresno Opera House was sold out. More than 2400 people stood and gave Il Volo a standing ovation!! The Theatre was sold out and the applause was deafening for the more than 2 hour performance!!
Our Elaine drove 200 miles in Labor Day traffic to attend her second concert this week! She tells us it was well worth the trip!
1) Twitters, Tweets and Keeks:
Gianluca tweeted last night “Thank you Fresno for the sold out! What a wonderful concert!
Piero tweeted # feelings # live # concert.
See keek of Piero rehearsing with the drummer before concert on Mundial Facebook.
See Keek of Paul Sorvino singing “O Solo Mio” with Il Volo at LA concert, also on Mundial.
Ignazio, no tweets? (some things never change! 🙂 )
2) Have a look at Il Volo Tumblr of the audience during the standing ovation last night. Anybody here recognize the age group of that audience? Hmm.
Please check our resource category on the left side of the site for things Il Volo.
The next concert is September 1st in Phoenix, wonder if they’ll ride the Il Volo bus to this concert?
After Phoenix they’ll be in Chicago on September 4th and Detroit on September 5th. Many of our Flight Crew are looking forward to these two concerts, as they’ll be attending! More on that later.
Love and Luck in Phoenix, Guys!!
