14 June 2018 – Milano Forum
The only Italian stage presentation of “Elvis – A wonder of you”, the tribute to the King of Rock, currently touring the world to remember the singer at forty years (forty-one, to be exact) from his passing.
On the stage there was a 70-piece symphony orchestra that performed live all the historical pieces of Presley’s repertoire, accompanied by Elvis’s original voice – which was also on video through a vertical maxi screen that rose in the middle of the stage.
The evening was hosted by Priscilla Presley, former wife of the singer, who recounted memories and anecdotes of Elvis’ life. A special guest was IL VOLO. This is how the trio of “Grande Amore” commented on their participation in the event:
“It will be an extraordinary emotion for us, to get on the stage of the Forum with a large orchestra and sing a song by a legendary artist like Elvis. We have known Priscilla Presley for a few years and it was an honor for us to accept this invitation to participate on some songs this evening.”

This is the promotional video made by Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio.
In this video, the guys thank Priscilla Presley and say they are honored to attend the concert.
Here are the guys at the tests, in the afternoon.
And here we are in the evening. We have known that the boys will do only one song, too bad, it would have been nice to hear Gianluca in his beautiful solos on Elvis’ songs.
Here is the video of the boys. They sang only one song, “O sole mio”, in English/Italian, they were very elegant and impeccable. Priscilla presented them as his dear friends.
Thanks to AAIV for the beautiful video.
So much waiting for one song, but they were very good as usual.
Did you like their performance?
I was satisfied with them but I would have preferred more songs, especially Gianluca.
What do you think?
