I’ve been reading your feedback and appreciate it!! I understand your concerns and now I’m having the same…. I’m still hoping they will not block the concert to those outside of Italy!
However, there MAY be a solution. If you have a VPN, you should be able to view the media from Italy. Pat has Nord VPN and she is usually able to view things that are blocked. (if you are not familiar with VPN, it stands for Virtual Private Network…)
I just looked up Nord and they offer a 30 day free trial. This may be a solution for most of us. I am NOT guaranteeing anything and this is only a suggestion – BE SURE TO READ THE FINE PRINT…. 😉
But here is the web link to Nord. I will be trying this myself. Good luck!
I’ve been getting a lot of questions on this from our US and Canadian fans. This is what I know….
Detroit PBS will NOT be live streaming their concert. There will be a “special pledge event” that is scheduled for 11:00pm EST in Detroit on June 5, and again on Sunday. I am sure this will be their hurried cut take of the concert. Unfortunately, I don’t believe anyone else in the country will be able to view it.
I’ve been told by a few folks that have called their local PBS stations regarding this concert that you will need to call your local PBS station and request that they buy this special event program from Detroit PBS.
Others have also said that their station has told them there may be a pledge event some time in December, where you may be able to see it in your area.
Personally, I’m hoping it will again appear on Amazon at some point. Their last Matera concert was available with both CD/DVD for around $25 or so on Amazon until recently and I directed a few folks to its purchase, earlier this year.
*****Here is the Rai1 link:*****
I also just found this nice little article that confirms that we should be able to watch it on the first link I have above: Il Volo canta inno di Mameli, Rai 1, 2 giugno 2021, tv, diretta- Soundsblog — “You will be able to follow both events on TV and streaming on the Raiplay.it”
I’ve read the scheduled time is about 9:15p Italy time, so whatever that translates for everyone…. Italy is 6 hours ahead of Detroit time…. so we plan on tuning in no later than about 3p…..
