IL VOLO TOUR: ATLANTIC CITY and OXON HILL by Daniela

We have posted about the Boston concert, but time runs fast and Il Volo is unstoppable.
On September 23rd there was a concert at ATLANTIC CITY, Borgata Casino Hotel but once again, someone who was present that evening, will talk to you soon in another post and in an exhaustive way about the concert, and so I’ll go ahead.

September 25: OXON HILL, MGM Theater

You know well that to write you these posts, I scan the various pages, taking here and there, where there are beautiful videos and photos and I try to put together the whole event.
This time I found few things, but then I saw what Joanna Asha Goclawska posted, whom I thank infinitely for her beautiful photos and her short but intense videos.

Thanks Joanna, great job !!

IF I CAN DREAM

GRANDE AMORE

 

What can I say, Joanna did a really good reportage, and I also really enjoyed reading the short comment that accompanied her photos and videos of the concert:
 “Il Volo, an Italian pop operatic trio. About 3 months ago, I heard a song on the internet that I liked very much, so I searched on Google for the singers and found out about Il Volo and the next concert. I liked the concert! 
Great trio with great vocals and a sense of humor!”
And here she is Joanna, on the night of the concert at the MGM Theater !!

Then I also found this short video of the beginning of the concert and I wanted to post it, to make you feel the excitement of the first moments of the concert, when Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca appear on stage ………. indescribable joy !!

ECSTASY OF GOLD

And what about these two beautiful photos posted by çmas2350?
In this beautiful shot there is sweetness, affection, tenderness, all in one photo !!
The comment was: “My mom almost had a heart attack.”

And in this photo, there is joy, hilarity, amazement !!

And since you enjoyed reading Ticketmaster’s comment, I am posting another one, which I really enjoyed.
“This for us is the second concert of IL VOLO, and we were blown away again. How can three young guys have so much talent?
They sing operatic, pop, rock and classic love songs with equal perfection and with no need for amps, synths or other gimmicks (harmony is so good, they wouldn’t even need an orchestra behind them, even if musicians with whom they travel are excellent themselves).
I’ve never been an opera fan because I felt like I was screaming at the top of my lungs. But their voices are like velvet, and their version of Nessun Dorma is incomparable (in fact, their version of any song is unmatched, Frank Sinatra has to think ‘I wish I could sing MY WAY so well’).
They are also so nice and really know how to put on a show. No one in the audience ever leaves an IL VOLO concert disappointed. Please let me know when they get back here.”
There is nothing to add, only that the next stop will be RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL !!

IL VOLO TOUR: BOSTON by Daniela

September 20

A lovely evening in Boston’s magnificent Wang Theater.
Il Volo, dressed in blue suits right from the start, delighted everyone present.
At the concert there were Mary and Mark Minton, here’s what they wrote to me:
“Hi Daniela, the concert in Boston was great! We met John from Connecticut there. It was great to see him again. The guys were in black for the whole concert and they looked very handsome. I was in the third row in the lane and Piero gave me a ‘fist bump’ when he walked around singing HERE’S TO YOU.
They sang all the same Mohegan Sun songs on Saturday. (Mary and Mark were also at the Mohegan Sun) The meet and greet was very busy and we only had a few seconds with the guys to take a photo. I’m sorry the concerts are over for us for now.”
(Mary and Mark also saw two concerts in Taormina this year.)
“We will have to plan another trip to Italy next year to see them again!”
What about Mary, you and Mark were very lucky, you have seen two concerts in Italy and two in the U.S. you also did the M&G, and Piero fist bumped you as he passed and sang. All beautiful !!
Thanks Mary also for the beautiful photos !!
I’m also glad you saw John.
John, when you want, write us again about Il Volo !! 😃
And now let’s enjoy some videos, this time everything should work !!

A few more photos …… never enough !!

Another good concert has ended and from the reviews I read on Ticketmaster, everyone is happy to have attended a concert where the voices are unquestionably beautiful. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca are friendly and nice, as well as beautiful. The lineup of songs is excellent and everything takes place in a very familiar atmosphere.
Even the Italian press is realizing that the tour is continuing its run, grinding praise and successes.
I want to end with a comment taken from Ticketmaster.
“I have never been to such a WONDERFUL concert !!!!! All three of these artists are so talented it takes your breath away!! The venue was great and ‘they demolished the house’. I would see them again in a heartbeat!”
They are IL VOLO: Daniela 🤗

IL VOLO TOUR 2022: INDIANAPOLIS, UNCASVILLE by Daniela

The Il Volo tour continues at a fast pace.
It is so good to see how much love our young men are gathering. Certainly Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have lacked familiarity with the American audience in the last two years and now they are deservedly gathering all the affection from their American fans.

September 15: INDIANAPOLIS

Also for this concert the choice is to keep the blue suits.

ECSTASY OF GOLD and NESSUN DORMA

Deborah and Jeannette were in Indianapolis, it wasn’t expected, and Deborah wrote like this:
“Well did you ever have the desire to do just one more? Sometimes things just fall into place! It appears we needed one more adventure, so in a spur of the moment decision, off we went to Indianapolis, Indiana!
What fabulous seats we had in the second row! Since I already posted my best videos from the Chicago concert, I did not plan to get anything at the Indianapolis concert!” 😁
Grazie Mille Deborah, per video e foto!!

Our friend and reader Jill Rhodes was present at the concert, here’s what she wrote:
“It was my first gig last night in Indianapolis. Done at the sound check, I had front row seats in the center, I met some very nice people while we waited for the concert to start. I had a photo with Gianluca at his invitation during the performance. It was all I was hoping for, and now it’s the next day, and I seriously wonder if it really happened! I have to go to another concert while I’m still on this planet! I guess there can’t be enough of these great guys!”
Jill, we understand very well what you felt, the first concert makes you want to see others ……….. it happened to all of us!!

September 17 UNCASVILLE

What can I say, the pictures speak for themselves, so many people at the concert, so much joy for everyone!
White men’s suits and crackling start with Ecstasy Of Gold, of course!

And thank you Lisa Joy, for these beautiful videos. 😘

NELLA FANTASIA

Michele Torpedine also posted this short video, with this comment:

“Another success in the United States.” 🇺🇸

 

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca also recorded this message for Atlanta! 
Always nice to see the concerts just performed!
I am enjoying reading the wonderful comments that are made on Ticketmaster after the concerts, and they are all beautiful.
I am very happy . . . Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero work hard and deserve this success.
Next stop: BOSTON 😊

IL VOLO TOUR 2022: DETROIT, CLEVELAND, CHICAGO by Daniela

The IL VOLO tour in U.S. started very well, in a short time there have already been three concerts, but let’s go in order:

10 September: DETROIT

Some friends were there, and I can tell you it was great.
They donned their beautiful white suits and then finished off with their traditional blues.
I don’t want to dwell on this concert, because among the audience there was our JANA, who had an important task to do after the concert. She herself will  tell you in a post the concert and the meeting at the Meet & Greet.
We look forward to your review Jana !! 🤗
So I’ll just put some photos, also because the security didn’t allow to make videos at all. Here in Italy I have not had any limitations to videos, too bad.
Thank you Deborah Beaupre for the photos and for the video of ECSTASY OF GOLD!! 😘
Please click on the photo below to view the video.

Detroit is also famous for its cars, and the guys took the opportunity to get into some really beautiful cars.

The next stop is CLEVELAND, but 11 September is a date that no one forgets and our dear ones Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca dedicate the National Anthem in memory of so many missing people. ❤ 🇺🇸

12 September : CLEVELAND

This time the boys wore their blue suits from the beginning, I don’t want to be wrong, this is just my thought, but I think they did it out of respect as the day before was the anniversary of the disappearance of the Twin Towers.
Cleveland, like Detroit, welcomed Il Volo enthusiastically and Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio responded with love.

Rose Marie Paliobeis was present at the concert and wrote that during the concert the boys  asked all people to stand up, and sang the National Anthem a cappella in memory of September 11th. It was a very touching and emotional moment.
Pat and I looked for a long time for a video that had captured this beautiful moment and here it is, thanks Lisa Joy, you were also present at the concert, happy to be able to see Il Volo again after a long  time !!

 

In Cleveland there was also Judy Thurman with Beverly Olson. Read what a nice gesture Piero made.
Last night at the concert in Cleveland with Judy Thurman. Piero grabbed my phone to take a selfie, but his solo part in the song started, so he quickly snapped this. What love!

……. and Ignazio receiving a gift 😁

September 13 CHICAGO

And now it’s Chicago’s turn.
Deborah Georgini Beaupre, Jeannette Giglio and Susan Tafanelli were also present at the Chicago concert, and they told me it was fantastic. ☺

This time Deborah managed to make several videos and many photos, thanks Deborah !!
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca started the concert with their white suits.
The audience was very enthusiastic.
From the videos, I could understand that there were other songs that they didn’t sing on the Italian tour, like this beautiful one:
“Would He Even Know Me Now” (MI CONOSCEREBBE ANCHE ADESSO)
Please click on the photo below to view the video.

Even the beautiful “NELLA FANTASIA” was not on the Italian tour, too bad!
FUNICULÌ FUNICULÀ

GRANDE AMORE and immediately we feel melancholy, because we know that the concert is over !!

Three wonderful concerts, but the tour continues, but where will they find the strength and in particular the voice to face everything in such a tight time frame?
The next stop is Indianapolis, which of you will be there ??
Don’t miss this great opportunity to hear beautiful voices.
Daniela

IL VOLO TOUR 2022: TORONTO by Daniela

It was a start with a bang! 🧨

Sold out for Toronto, many people who were finally waiting after more than two years, to be able to see them again.
And they arrived, almost a vision, all dressed in white, wonderful, mesmerizing suits.
A roar greeted them, and here they are back, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca: Il Volo.

How much beauty, how much skill !!
The lineup of songs slightly changed compared to the Italian tour, will it vary again? I think yes.
Their entrance on the stage, how amazing !!
It all starts with ECSTASY OF GOLD
Click on the photo below to view the video.

HALLELUJA in black and white
Gianluca presents a new single, IF I CAN DREAM, a song by Elvis, sung in an excellent way.
Who knows if it is a coincidence that Elvis was in white double-breasted, in the photo of the record.
