日本ツアーの続き (THE JAPANESE TOUR CONTINUES) by Daniela

The tour in Japan is going very well.
Already four concerts have been made.
The last one in Bunkamura, Tokyo.

It was a success!

Here is the short video made by Mrs. Lenora, at the end of the concert.

The boys are expected by the Japanese fans, for a last autograph and they are always very available and nice.

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, also advertised the movie NOTTE MAGICA de IL VOLO, which will be released in Japanese cinemas in July, and then posed for a photo shoot, wearing Japanese fashion clothes.

What to say, they are always nice to see !!!

They could really be professional photo models.

They also made a video to promote the new video “A CHI MI DICE”.

There is also another bit of good news.

The album MUSICA de IL VOLO has entered the second place in the daily ranking of the best-selling records in Japan (Original Confidence Daily International Music Charts).

Italian pride abroad.

And then they were interviewed, and here is a summary of this interview.

IL VOLO arrives in Japan.

The tenth anniversary concert tour starts in Japan!

I was shuddered by Il Volo’s voice! 

Notte Stellata (Starry Night)” that Yuzuru Hanyu chose for the music of the Pyeongchang Olympics and received great acclaim. The young trio of Italian origin, Il Volo, is the owner of an incredibly sweet and clean singing voice that gently embraces the heart of the listener.

Piero, Ignazio, Gianluca ……, three members found talent in the Italian audition program at the age of 14 and 15, formed a boundless trio that sings from Italian folk songs to operas and pops, caused a boom all over the world.

In commemoration of the tenth anniversary of the formation, it is an interview with them during the tour of the concert in Japan that is coming at this time.

I have heard of love and passion for music, feelings for friends and future activities.

Piero Barone, born 24 June 1993, from Sicily. Sing the air of the opera in a dramatic volume, reminiscent of R. Pavarotti from the apogee. A smart and cool leader who also has a sense of laughter

PIERO = Since we started, we have also sung opera classics and original folk songs, but Il Volo’s main goal is to let many know about the charm of Italian music.

Gianluca Ginoble, born 11 February 1995, from Abruzzo. A handsome boy with an ordered appearance just like a sculpture. Sing in a romantic way with a shiny and deep velvet voice and capture the heart of the listener.

GIANLUCA= What is at the base of our music are the traditional melodies of Italy, and the passion to convey that charm has not changed at all.

Ignazio Boschetto, born 4 October 1994, from Bologna. From the soulful and sparkling cry to the parts he delicately sings, the ability to sing freely. He’s hot. A humorous speech is a fun mood maker.

IGNAZIO= Italians love music a lot, but we all grew up, especially among music lovers. Everyone was influenced by grandfather and dad, and grew up listening to Italian folk songs and works.

There is a reputation for their appeal that attracts women all over the world. They are also very popular as a star in South America, and it is also a promise that the scene where women who fall in love with them throw colorful gifts (sometimes even bras!) On stage!

The Japan Tour audience, which started May 13th, was not only feminine, but also colorful. A large public and people from adolescents and twenties to grandfather and grandparents, the three of Il Volo will be united in a warm atmosphere. The venue is just the classics room like the Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Grand Hall, Arie in the name of the work, the light Italian folk songs resound with applause, to every part of the song, “Bravo.”

Il Volo also greeted the public, sometimes serving a kiss.

For my age generation, they are almost the age of my children, but for the dynamic singing voice and the appearance I knew at the show, there is also a lot of sensuality for adults! The heart is beating fast and the romantic concentration in the blood seems to increase.

GIANLUCA = It was impressive to come to Japan that your ways are wonderfully good. I am impressed by how you listen to our music calmly, very carefully and impatiently! It would be nice if the South American and European public were with everyone in Japan (laughs). I will learn Japanese at my next visit to Japan, so I will be able to exchange more words with the public, so please look ahead.

IGNAZIO = I’m happy to be able to do a concert at Japan. Arigatou Gozaimasu! I look forward to performing in Osaka this time. Everyone who comes to the concert, let’s meet up at the “Okini!” (If I had gone to Osaka, I would like to say “Okini”, Inazio practiced repeatedly.)

In 2016 an open-air concert was held in Florence entitled “Il Volo with Placido Domingo NOTTE MAGICA – Dedicated to the three great tenors”. The model becomes a film and will be released from 19 July in Japan. Even those who could not come on this tour can enjoy their beautiful singing voices in the cinema. What kind of movie is it?

GIANLUCA = The concert took place in Piazza Santa Croce in Florence. Spend a summer evening with us in a fantastic illuminated square …. I think you can enjoy such a romantic moment. It would be nice if you could look at the theater!

PIERO = Even on the fifth anniversary of the training, they asked me, “What do you think of Il Volo after five years?”

And I replied: “I would like to celebrate the tenth anniversary with these three people”. Now, what I can say is this: “I really want to sing with them, for 50 years more.”

Guys, this Japanese tour, is taking place in the best way.
We are so happy for your success, because you deserve it.
I would say that your tenth anniversary is taking place in the best way.
But the goals are still many.
We are always here to support you!

I was very pleased to read, how much they are loved and esteemed everywhere.

And what do you think of this and of the new video?

INIZIA IL TOUR: YOKOHAMA by Daniela

The tour has started.

Japan, first stop, Yokohama.

The theater that will host IL VOLO is very beautiful.

Everything is ready, last moments in the backstage, sent by our beautiful baritone.

The evening program booklet is also very nice.

The concert will be set to the NOTTE MAGICA program, but there will certainly be variations.

And here is the list of songs that will be performed in the concert.

A really intense program.

It is very similar to the NOTTE MAGICA program, but with some variations.

The following have been introduced:

“QUESTA O QUELLA” taken from IL Rigoletto,

“NOTTE STELLATA” (lately they sing this only in Japan and instead we would like to hear it everywhere),

“LAMENTO DI FEDERICO” from the Arlesiana,

“BE MY LOVE” and “MUSICA CHE RESTA”  from the last CD.

Furthermore “O ‘PAESE D’O SOLE” is sung by all three and not only by Piero and Ignazio.

Unfortunately in Japan, it is not allowed to make video footage while the concert is taking place, therefore there are no videos, only a very short video of the concert already finished with standing ovation, taken by Mrs. Lenora.

And here are the only photos of the concert.

The Japanese are very observant of the rules.

However we can guess that it was a success, and we wish Piero, Ignazio and GIanluca to continue their tour with great success …… and we hope, for us, to be able to see some videos!

The boys continue to be hosted in the various programs, here they are in the UTACON show, where the boys sing a small song in Japanese.

Very nice as usual and always available for photos.

What do you think about the concert program and the new songs included?

It is clear that the program will not be the same here in Italy and also in the US.

I think it’s a very intense program and honestly I’m curious to hear Rigoletto and Arlesiana.

I also think that these guys can do everything, and range from a classic program to a pop with great ease and this is certainly not for everyone.

Well guys are you ready for the next concert ???

Tokyo awaits you !!

START THE TOUR: JAPAN by Daniela

We’ve known it for a long time Japan was on the horizon.

The boys arrived in “the land of the rising sun” and have already had some commitments.

Here they are upon their arrival.

Visit to Sony Music Japan and the announcement of the start of the tour.

The promo link from Sony Music Japan, of “NOTTE STELLATA”.

Short interview in the program Music Station, in Tokyo.

I = In these photos, there are our passions: fashion, football, music.

G = It is also an honor to be close to these great characters, whom we dreamed of meeting as children, and whom we then met.

P = Singing in front of Pope Francis was a great thrill and also in front of a million people and this is the most beautiful selfie of our life.

P = Hi, I’m Piero

I = I am Ignazio

G = and I’m Gianluca

P = and we are IL VOLO.

I = Our favorite song, lately is “Shallow”, by Lady Gaga

P = and Bradley Cooper

G = also has also won the Oscar, is one of the most beautiful songs ever, of the last period.

P + I + G = Goodbye, goodbye.

But here we are at the most important moment of the program, IL VOLO performs “NOTTE STELLATA”.

There are no words, this short video of “Notte Stellata” gives us a sweet execution made by our boys. Superb, even if shortened for program needs.

Magnificent words related to this video by Valeria Bosch:

HOW YOU CAN FALL IN AN “ENCHANTMENT” – A video of just over two minutes, shot in Tokyo, in a television studio: three young and handsome boys with unique voices, already beautiful at the beginning, but now, as that the maturation proceeds, even more penetrating, passionate and sensual, a timeless music, “The swan” by Camille Saint Saens, arranged by Tony Renis (“Notte Stellata”), a skater who designs magical evolutions on the ice. It is possible that all this could cause an enchantment, indeed I would like to say, with the permission of Dante Alighieri, an “enchantment” why does it seem to me that I can capture the state of grace in which I felt immersed ?

The degree of perfection to which these youngsters have arrived in solo interventions, in the fusion of the voices, in the musical harmony, in the understanding between them, I think has no worthy comparison in any other musical group in the world: Gianluca starts with that voice persuasive and velvety that immediately immerses you in a special world, made of dream, love, pure romanticism; Piero then softens his powerful voice to prolong the magic and dilate it so much that you seem to be completely enveloped in it, and Ignazio takes you to the stars, enchants you, fascinates you, forces you to hold your breath, until Gian returns to you with his singing an incomparable sweetness.

Three male voices of a poignant beauty, more and more ductile, ever more melodious, sweet and powerful at the same time, singing the eternal law of love, passion and dream.

Valeria Bosch.

Some shots of “life in Japan”…

Here is the full video of IL VOLO’s stay at the MUSIC STATION show.

Yes, the tour is officially starting.

And then it will be a very long run from Japan to Italy, and then Europe.

In lightning will also come from you and the long wait will be over.

Did you enjoy performing Starry Night?

IL VOLO AND THEIR MOTHERS by Daniela

Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio arrived in Japan, the tour begins and it starts from the east.

At the airport in Japan, they were greeted by fans who kindly waited for a welcome.

Always followed by the inevitable, sweet Barbara, who does not abandon them for a moment.

But there is also another female presence, Mrs. Lenora, Gianluca’s mother, followed her son in this oriental adventure.

And because today is Mother’s Day, let’s talk a little about the mothers of these fantastic boys.

Here they are:

Eleonora, Caterina and Lenora, are three very sweet women, not at all intrusive or obsessive with their famous children.

Surely, at the beginning these women suffered the distance and all the worries, for these children, little more than little boys, distant thousands of kilometers.

At home there were other children, and the presence could not be divided, but the maternal love, that one, could overcome the enormous distances and make itself felt strong and vigorous, always.

For this reason the role of their fathers, associated with that of the extraordinary Barbara, was also fundamental.

Lenora,  Gianluca’s mother.

Caterina,  Ignazio’s mother.

Eleonora, Piero’s mother.

Mamma Eleonora, mother of Piero, has a big problem, she has the phobia of flying, so on tours abroad she didn’t follow her son, except perhaps rare cases.

For this reason we have often seen photos of Lenora and Caterina together, that during the tours of the children, they keep each other company. 

Do you recognize Piero’s gaze in Signora Eleonora’s eyes?

For this reason Eleonora  was not there during the special PBS, when the boys sang and were filmed with their mothers.

Really sweet this video !!

But let’s also see the splendid concert in Taormina, where Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca sang “MAMMA” clutching their mothers warmly.

Fantastic, what adorable kids.

Who wouldn’t want to be in place of those three moms ??

They will be very proud to huddle with their children, in front of all those people.

Really beautiful images, which move us and prove the great love that binds these guys to their mothers.

An interviewer, one day asked the boys, if they considered themselves “mammons” (very close to their mother, often said in the negative sense) and they answered, “What is wrong with loving their mother?” We have to admit this is a sign of a great son’s love.

We owe a great thank you to these women for having raised children with sound principles, with great education and respect. 

A mother’s love goes beyond time and circumstances, and is forever.


Naturally we are all linked to our mothers, certainly is not a party to remind us of them, but it serves to make us linger a little and distract ourselves from the daily life of this frenetic world and send our thoughts, to the one who created us, our mum, wherever she is.

I think of you too, mum, and I know you’re always here with me.

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone !!!
