And it was also the turn of the beautiful Poland.
The boys were greeted with so much love, the Polish public was very warm, and our guys gave them, the maximum, as always.
But here is a nice video made by Prestige, which proposes some beautiful moments of the concert.
Alicja, was present at the concert.
She sent me her review and some beautiful photos and videos that I will now publish so that everyone can enjoy them.
I’m still trilling after the Saturday concert, so please excuse my very emotional words. The concert was fantastic, magical, pure passion with much laud and enthusiasm from the audience. Our boys started from a beautiful classic aria, “NESSUN DORMA” from Turandot, which was very warm welcomed by all of us. Of “IL MONDO” – pure magic, of course Ignazio was showing off with his high notes and Piero encouraged him to sing even higher.
The Polish fan club prepared shiny sticks to all the fans, we turned them on when “Il Mondo” was performed – the whole audience was a lightning bolt with the colors white, red and green – flags of Italy (red, white, green) and Poland (white and red). Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca were very surprised and happy I think. I was in the front row and I saw their faces very well. Yes, they were happy. 🤗❤️
I’m sorry I don’t remember the whole set list, I felt like in heaven and still can’t really make up my mind. I remember their funny introduction, with little evidence of Polish, but also Ignazio remembered only “Dobry wieczór” (Good Evening) – we teach it during sound check and “Dziekuje” (Thanks) Gian asked how to say good morning in Polish – we said “Dzien dobry” and it really sounds like Ginoble a little. He started as a joke that his surname means good morning in Polish and Ignazio Boschetto invented which means good night 😁 (obviously not)
(I found on YouTube, the video that Alicja refers to…………Daniela)
Our boys were in fantastic shape, they sang like angels, for me they sounded better than on CD. First solo was Ignazio’s “MEMORY”, then “BRIDGE OVER TROUBLE WATER”, performed by Gianluca and “NO PUEDE SER” by Piero. Then again trio and duets “MARIA”, “TORNA A SURRIENTO” (in Italian Version + English) “MY WAY”, “O PAESE D’O SOLE”.
Gian and Piero had the second and third solos “MI MANCHERAI” and “LOVE STORY”.
From the new album they performed “ARRIVEDERCI ROMA”, “A CHI MI DICE” and “MUSICA CHE RESTA”. From old albums they sang and “UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE”, “SMILE”, “O SOLE MIO”, “VOLARE” – everyone started dancing, singing and approached the scene.
Girls screaming, ok … not just girls … women a little older too and no one sat anymore.
Very long version of the “GRANDE AMORE” for farewell and our beloved Il Volo took off for the next concert in Bulgaria. Of course they said how much love Poland and Polish fans, he promised to come back next year. ❤️❤️❤️
We had short M & G meeting because the boys had very early flight the next day, but together with hugs, kisses and chats during the sound check it was really beautiful experience to be so close to my stars. I made funny caricatures of Il Volo guys and asked them (during the sound check we have only a little more time than M & G) to sign each image. I have signatures, bigger “Thanks” from Gian – he liked his caricature more. Piero wondered “Why am I naked ???” and Igna smiled beautifully and said “Good job” I must admit that I am totally in love and together with my friend we acted like crazy 15 year-olds ….
I can only say that it was the best concert ever. Better than Matera and much better than last year in Poland. Standing ovation almost after each song and faces of Piero, Ignazio and Gian when we shout “BRAVI”, “We love you.”, etc … is priceless.
And here is our Alicja, happy in the photo, along with her treasures !!!
