It all started in July, while IL VOLO was in Taormina for the Notte Magica 2018 concert.
Salvo La Rosa, is a great friend and admirer of the boys, who has always supported and presented them, on various occasions in Sicily.
“In July, in front of a granita (al Bambar) I invited Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca to the GDS SHOW on September 15th in Taormina.
With generosity, IL VOLO, will participate in this magical evening.
The proceeds will be donated to charity.”
Then, even our friend Dave Monaco, (remember, the first singer taken under the new label of Torpedine and IL VOLO), lets us know that he will be present at the evening, with this message:
“Good morning friends, I am glad to tell you that I will be taking part in the GDS Show! It will be a great honor to share the stage with many artists and my friends of Il Volo, thank you very much to Salvo La Rosa for the invitation!
The entire proceeds of the evening will be donated to charity associations, so in addition to enjoying a great show, your participation will be a work of good.
I wait for you!”
The boys have returned to Taormina (I think with great pleasure). Here they are during the rehearsals of the show, together with the presenter of the evening, Salvo La Rosa.
Missing Piero, ultimately skipped the rehearsals, the scoundrel!
Piero has arrived!!
Here we are at the evening, the show started, in the splendid setting of the Greek Theater.
Thanks to our Deborah Georgini Beaupre, we have some very beautiful photos and videos.
Good thing that Deborah was able, at the last moment to find a ticket for the show.
The guys sang three songs: they started with L’AMORE SI MUOVE.
During the presentation, Salvo la Rosa, says that when the boys were in Taormina in July, he joined them and asked them if they would participate in the show and they immediately said yes!
Immediately after, they sang the splendid CARUSO.
In the interview after the songs, Salvo la Rosa asks the boys if they have a particular memory to tell. In fact, he himself, remembers when there was the first Italian concert, after the great success they had abroad and their first Italian concert was held here in Taormina.
Piero says it was frustrating for them, to be so successful abroad and not to sing in their country.
Salvo La Rosa remembers having hosted in one of his programs the guys from IL VOLO who said “We want to sing at home”.
Ignazio intervenes to point out joking, that they sing at home in the shower, but they wanted to sing in Italy.
Salvo goes on to say that Taormina has brought them luck.
Gianluca continues by saying that Taormina is now a fixed stop.
Piero adds that there are many friends, that Gianluca is Sicilian by adoption, that Ignazio taught Gianluca to speak Sicilian.
Gianluca pronounces two or three words in Sicilian and everyone laughs.
Salvo asks them for what they are preparing. Piero answers that they are working on a new album, because next year will be 10 years of their career.
Salvo says they were children, but success has been steady and growing.
Gianluca says that there is still a lot that they have to show and that they will be ready to surprise the public and their fans who have been following them for many years.
Salvo says that every time they post a photo of the guys or a video of them on social media it’s a success. He says that in an evening where love is celebrated, you stay and sing your GRANDE AMORE.
The beautiful GRANDE AMORE begins and as usual the audience sings with them.
This show has been recorded and will be streamed on September 27th at 9:30 pm Italian time at this link: www.gds.it, so those of you want to see, connect.
Some photos from Deborah:
But the most beautiful pictures Deborah made them in the afternoon, naturally in front of the Bambar.
Two out of three, Deborah, I think you can be satisfied, you also attended the show, we say you were in the right place at the right time. I’m very happy for you!!!
What a thrill, and then, as usual, Taormina offers a magnificent scenery, and the guys feel they are “at home”, so many people were there for them, and the guys, as usual, did not betray their fans’ expectations.
Thank you guys!!
