And the time has come, for the Italian MUSIC AWARDS.
They will be held, as is well known, in Verona, in the beautiful Arena.
During this show, the singers who have had more CD sales or more people at the live concerts, the previous year, are rewarded.
There will be no prizes for IL VOLO, because as you all know, the year 2018 didn’t have new CDs and there were few live concerts.
But our guys were invited as guests, and to promote their work.
Here they are during the rehearsals.
And here in a funny video, where they say “THANK YOU” in many different languages. 😂
Even Torpedine has fun during the rehearsals .
Piero says: “Tonight we have an exceptional drummer, Torpedine. Torp”.
Here on their arrival, with some fans.
They also gave interviews, here is one for which you can use the translator function. Activate it.
This is another interview with Radio Italia (one of the few radios that always broadcast IL VOLO songs).
Man = From the Arena of Verona, ladies and gentlemen: IL VOLO.
Gian = Good pronunciation.
Woman = with a slightly American accent.
Man = They are international artists, guys, come on.
Ignazio = In my country say “U VOLO, more international than that.”
Man = How nice to meet you guys, how are you?
Ignazio = Well, happy to be back at the Arena, we will be back again in September on the 24th.
Man = Will be the final of a tour that?
Piero = Yes, from July we will sing, from north to south, in all the cities of Italy.
Man = Also, you just did a tour in Japan, where you were.
Piero = Yes, a month of concerts in Japan.
Woman = Furthermore, you are young, but you already have 10 years of career behind you.
Ignazio = In fact, look, to Piero, white hair has already grown. It has been 10 intense years, Piero always says that they have gone on the fly.
They have passed quickly, intense, we have traveled a lot, but above all, it is a concentration of emotions, because getting to different cultures has always been our goal, and succeeding, after 10 years also in Japan, is something that makes us very proud, and repays us for all the sacrifices.
Piero = In Japan, we were lucky, because they praise a discipline that is ice skating. Their champion, won the gold medal at the Olympic Games on the ice last year, with our song. So, we’re second in the standings.
Man = Boys, it must be beautiful.
Woman = That is, he introduced you to Japan.
Piero = Do you know who is first in the standings?
Man = Who is first in the standings?
Ignazio = Bohemian Rapsody
Woman = But, what an honor, second only behind Bohemian Rapsody.
We thank Radio Italia, and for the interview and always spread the beautiful music of the boys.
The day was long and hot for the boys, but now we have arrived at the time of the show ………. here they are !!!!!
What can I say?
This is the video of the only song the boys sang, but before and after them, there were many singers and …… trust my judgment, the guys of IL VOLO are spectacular, their voices are unique. “I’ve heard so many singers who have sung so many false notes.”
Always in excellent shape, an amalgamation of perfect voices, and the high notes of Ignazio ………. excellent !!
Their live performances, however, never disappoint.
