NA TOUR UPDATE!!

Hello Ilvololovers!

‘Tis a sad day for North America!  If you haven’t already heard, the NA Tour has been postponed til September, and unfortunately, not all venues were able to be rescheduled.  The underlying reason is due to Covid.  The 5-letter word that has been ruling our world for the past 2 years now.  🙁

Other suspicions are low ticket sales, but that as well, is likely due to Covid fears.  Below is what has, I’m sure by now, been circulating over all of Ilvoloworld!  I looked on Ticketmaster and most have been rescheduled already for the September dates.  As in previous cancellations, your current seat tickets will be honored.  There are still a few venues that have a FEW front row seats left – sorry, Detroit is all taken!  lol!  But still many good seats left!  Radio City has 4 front row left – if you have $1374 + fees, you don’t know what to do with and that doesn’t include a meet/greet!  

A note on the concerts in Italy for June – Verona and Taormina….

At the present time, as far as Daniela knows, they will still happen.  My personal thoughts are, because they are both open air arenas, they will still happen, while the ones that were rescheduled, I believe were indoor concerts.

***Also just announced, they will be in Brazil in November!!  I didn’t notice any dates or venues yet though…. 🙂  A real Buon Natale for you!  Or should I say, Feliz Natal!  🙂

In this sadness, there are some positives!

  1. the weather will be a whole lot warmer, for most venues!  🙂

  2. will give us more time to save up, if needed 🙂

  3. will give us more time to lose weight!  lol  🙂

  4. will give us more time to heal, if we’ve had surgery!  🙂

  5.  more time to plan what we will wear! 🙂

  6. more time to practice what to say to our guys, if lucky enough to have a meet/greet ticket!  🙂

  7. more time to join the fan club, in hopes they have a sound check audience!  🙂

  8. more time to promote their concert in your area!  🙂

  9. more time to clean and organize your place, for out of town guests!  🙂  (ok, that’s me…lol)

  10. more time for some personal projects!  (ok, that’s me, too lol)  🙂

  11. we can watch the new Elvis movie coming out and pretend we are hearing Gianluca!  🙂

We all know what the negatives can be, but I don’t want to go into that here!  🙂

Right now, a good portion of the venues are still requiring Covid safety protocols – masks, proof of vaccines, or negative PCR tests (Detroit Fox is one of them!)  No harping here, but please do what it takes to keep yourself, your fellow fans, and most importantly, our guys, safe!  🙂

That being said, I found this really cool site called Red Bubble that has USA artists that make masks and SEVERAL Il Volo ones!  I ordered 4 myself.  Buy some and wear them proudly as an easy way to promote our guys!  I ordered and got them in about a week.  They give you a discount if you order 4 or more :).  They are very nice quality and are like a polyester blend, with a tiny bit of stretch to them.  I think they are very well done!  Here is their website:  Il Volo Gifts & Merchandise | Redbubble  

They actually have quite a few things that look really nice, take a scroll through and/or do a search on masks.  🙂

Ok, with all this bad news, I thought we needed some cuteness (my kitty, my post lol)  Here is my new little kitten, Topaz!  She is about 9 months old! (be sure to click on the picture to see it larger!)

Well, another 7 months to wait…. we’re strong, we’re Ilvololovers!

We can do this!  🙂

OOPS!  So sorry, time IS flying too quickly!  He will be 27! 🙁 

Yes, they are not children anymore, and now all of them will have passed the quarter century mark!  They’ve done more in their short lifetime, than most can imagine doing in their entire careers!

Sorry, a little late this year, time is flying so quickly!  But most should know the drill by now! 🙂

Here are some guidelines:

  1. It is recommended you choose a song NOT sung by Il Volo or Gian….

  2. I know many cannot make up their minds, there are so many songs, but please keep your choices to the TOP THREE! (that is per person, not per email…)

  3. You may start sending in your wishes as well

    1. to make it easier on me, please send your wishes and birthday song in SEPARATE emails and indicate song or wish in the subject, as to make sure I don’t miss anyone, I delete them, after I add them to my file.  Sorry, it’s the way I do it….

  4. Please send all wishes and birthday song choices to:  ilvoloflightcrew@gmail.com

These dates with give both Kelly and I time to get everything together.   It takes both of us HOURS to put this together!  😉   And we both have full time jobs.

Thanks – Jana and Kelly 😉

LAST CALL FOR SONGS! Our youngest is turning 27! Tanti Auguri, Gian! Feb 11

Ok folks, last call for song suggestions…thank you to those of you who have sent in suggestions already, from near and far!  🙂

Just a few more disclaimers here….

  1. Our admins on this site, have no direct contact with either Il Volo or their management – we wish we did!

  2. We have no influence on any songs they choose to sing – if you would like to suggest a song for them to sing, I would recommend you posting it on the “official” Il Volo Fan Page site – of which you need to become a member of to access.

  3. As always, the song is chosen by Kelly, who creates the video, which is posted on our site on their birthday, along with the wishes everyone sends in.
