The new tour is upon us.
We have been waiting for it for some time and in a few days the tour will start from Matera. Matera is a beautiful city in Basilicata (Italian region).
It is called the “City of the Stones”, due to the particular houses that were built inside the rock.
Matera is considered the third oldest city in the world.
It is part of the UNESCO world heritage and this year has been awarded as “capital of culture”.
Il Volo, will officially open the season of events in Matera with the concert on June 16, which will be held at the Cava del Sole.
But Matera, this year, will also be affected by the PBS special.
I will translate a piece from an article in the newspaper “La gazzetta del mezzogiorno”.
“The one scheduled in Matera at the Cava del Sole, is such a long-awaited moment to have interested PBS, an important American national television network, that two days before the debut – on the occasion of a private event, scheduled for June 14 in Piazza San Pietro Caveoso in Matera – will shoot the show of the three great Italian artists to make it an important overseas live show to program it in the coming months. In the television story in question, the Orchestra della Magna Grecia will serve as a precious frame to the extraordinary performances by Barone, Boschetto and Ginoble.”
So the two concerts will be in Matera but in two different places.
The tour start concert will be on June 16 in Cava del Sole, while the PBS special will be shot in Piazza S. Pietro Caevoso and will be a private invitation-only event.
But here is the photo of the beautiful square where the PBS event will be held.
Really a place full of charm.
It will be a beautiful special, with fantastic singers, magnificent songs and a wonderful panorama.
What more could you want ……. to be present at the event …… but unfortunately Matera is not very easy to reach, and in any case there is no doubt, we will all enjoy the video, and surely our hearts will all be there on June 14th.
Meanwhile, Alessandro Quarta also announced that he will share the stage with IL VOLO during the tour.
I look forward to hearing “MUSICA CHE RESTA” with the violin accompaniment.
What will the program of songs have for us?
A lot of good past and present music, classical and pop and why not, something about the Latin CD, but it will be excellent music sung by our fantastic GIANLUCA, IGNAZIO and PIERO.
