We are still in Verona, in the beautiful Arena.
The name of this program is SEAT MUSIC AWARDS Journey into Music.
The presenter is Nek. Many of you will remember that Nek is a good Italian singer who participated in Sanremo in 2015 and ranked second after Il Volo!!!!
Also this program is dedicated to the workers who work in the concerts and Nek, will interview the singers and also the various technicians who have the task of making everything work in a concert.
Nek = We will sing together on this journey this afternoon. Let’s start immediately with the best of Italian music.
They are three boys, they started when they were little more than children and now, they sing all over the world.
They are Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero, they are IL VOLO.
(applause, Il Volo performs UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE)
(at the end of the song, Nek returns to the stage with Alessio Gurrieri, he is the sound engineer of Il Volo)
Nek = Il Volo, a round of applause. Look who I have here? Alessio, the backliner of Il Volo.
G = Great Alessio, our sound engineer.
Nek = Hi guys, let’s get here in the center. For the people at home, he (Alessio) is the backliner of Il Volo, which means their guardian angel. When they go on stage, Alessio never abandons them. Now, Alessio you have to tell me how they sang today?
Alessio = Well, come on!!
Nek = We want to know the truth!!
G = I see Alessio is particularly excited today.
Nek = Sure, because he has a conflict of interest today (Alessio is also Nek’s backliner). But Alessio is too good.
Alessio = You set me up.
I = We shared many things with Alessio, starting with the chamomile tea behind the scenes.
Nek = I know, Alessio is like a father, to all intents and purposes he is also really a father.
Alessio = An older brother, come on.
G = There is a beautiful moment, come on, says Piero.
Nek = In fact, I want to know Alessio, you have seen them hundreds of times on stages abroad, but was there a time when something went wrong?
You have to tell us.
P = One day, we were doing the concert in Miami. During concerts, we have moments of solos, and in those moments, I go behind the dressing room, take and scroll through the phone. Relax.
I go back to the stage, I was about to start singing and I realize that I don’t have the microphone in my hand, but my cell phone, I turn around in despair and see behind me, Alessio’s arm, which sticks out with the microphone in hand. An angel.
I = But we’ve been through all sorts of things. Alessio helps us in everything.
Nek = Thanks for this testimony guys. Thank you, it was nice to have you here, I want to hear a big applause for Il Volo and for Alessio!!
P = I just wanted to say that music and concerts go on thanks mainly to people like Alessio.
Nek = Thanks to the workers of the entertainment world.
G = (to Alessio) we love you.
P + I + G = Bye Verona.
Another good performance from our guys.
We would be happy if we could see them every day, as in these last two days.
Let’s be satisfied with this, for now, and …… see you next time!!
