Can you believe it? Just 4 weeks away now for those of us lucky enough to visit Verona again! I have to say, I really didn’t think I’d be able to go back again. As many of you know, it’s been a really rough past year and a half for me for many reasons, but I am feeling much better and finally looking forward to going to Italy again to see the guys. 🙂
I am lucky again to go with my dear friend Lorna. We will also be joined by Rose Marie from Ohio, and Betty from New Orleans! Our itinerary includes Roma this time, in fact, we will eat our way through Roma, after the Vatican, of course. Lol! We also plan to visit Lake Garda for a day, after the Verona concert, then back to Roma, and home. Will be a quick trip, but hopefully a more relaxing one than last time.
So, who’s going to Verona?? Each day, I find that there is another person that will be joining the many hundreds of fans at their last official concert in Italy – at the Arena di Verona! Alas, we don’t have front row, but do have meet/greets. Front row will have to wait for Detroit, and hopefully Chicago.
In the comments, please let me know who is going to Verona, for starters, it will be myself, Lorna, Betty, Rose Marie, Daniela P (of course 🙂 ), a few others I am aware of from the States, as well. Also, my other friend Veronica from Italy, and her friends.
I know many do not like to “join the throngs of the crowd” and that’s ok, but if anyone would like to join our group for a pre-concert gathering somewhere near the arena, please note it in the comments. If you’d like, you can email me directly at:
We also have our tickets to the soundcheck! Yay! Maybe we could plan something before or after that? Lorna, Rose Marie and I are staying at DiMoras House – about a 10-minute walk or so to the arena. We are taking the train from Roma to Verona that morning of the 24th.
I look forward to your comments and suggestions! 🙂
On another note…. I’m sure many of you have seen (and cringed) at the PBS announcement of the guys being in Detroit again on Labor Day September 2. Looks like they’ve really outpriced themselves this time as it was initially a “big secret” – now they are having trouble selling the tickets. I believe I heard there were 50 tickets and as of this writing, they still have some left. Tickets are $500 for meet/greet & Wine/Dine. Here is the link, if anyone is still interested in going… https://www.pledgecart.org/pledgeCart3/?campaign=38B55A20-6C5C-4849-B794-175DAF95CB7A&source=#/home?cmpgn=DPTVExp2
