To quote the song, “My Way…” “And now…. the end is near… and so we face, the final curtain….” I’m sure the guys are feeling this right now – maybe even a little bit of bittersweet, perhaps? Just a few more concerts in Kiev and Japan and a few more special appearances in Australia and the cruise ship, and it’s over. I can only imagine what they are thinking. We all know they are excitedly starting to work on their new project with Emilio, quickly leaving Notte Magica behind – at least for a little while.
Daniela found the following pictures for me and there were a few short videos, but somehow they cut off in the middle of them. I’m sure they are out there, but I did not find too many videos from Chile, but it’s about all the same from the last concerts…
So, enjoy the pictures and meet/greet photos!

Meet/Greet: not too many, looks like several of them got a few pictures!
Ah, there go our boys again… to Rio! Do you know there are over 100 songs that have been written about Rio de Janeiro? According to Barry Manilow and many others, it’s the “hottest spot north of Havana!” The guys enjoyed 5 awesome concerts in Brazil and it’s no wonder their Notte Magica CD/DVD won the highest award! The crowds at their concerts certainly proved that point. There were some beautiful pictures posted by Piero and Ercole of the Copa.
Thanks again to all owners of pictures and videos!
Here are your Meet/Greets! Those are some brightly colored shirts at the end!
The guys are quickly making their way now through South America with just 3 more concerts to go. It is hard to believe and what events they have been through so far, earthquakes, just missing hurricanes, etc. Things seemed to have settled down a bit, weather-wise since they actually got to South America. We are certainly glad of that!
The Latin crowd seems to be getting an all-around concert, kind of what I’d hoped for in the US – a little of this, a little of that, but as we all say, it doesn’t matter what they sing, it is awesome and never long enough! However, they are getting to hear Volare, Canzone per Te, Il Mundo, Mas Que Amor, and maybe even a few others people haven’t shared. Through these last few video clips, I think the guys are finally having fun again. The clip from Il Mundo, reminds me of “old” Igna, where he was bouncing on his toes during the refrain. Their voices just keep getting richer and richer. Their tones continuously awesome. Adding nuances here and there, just to keep it interesting!
Very special thanks to the AAIV group, who appeared to attend all of the concerts in Brazil and uploading their clips to Instagram. Also thanks to all owners of the videos and pictures and of course Ercole, Piero, and Gianluca, for always keeping us entertained. 🙂
I’d also like to welcome all the fans from the AAIV site, to enjoy our site. Please forward to all of your friends! 🙂
OMG PICS! (we of course do not have the group from Sep 24 because it is tonight’s concert)
My doctor said I should add more cardio to my exercise routine, do you think he would approve of this? 🙂
Piero – looking up and down at life!
The picture was a little gift from the hotel….was Piero trying to be incognito? 🙂
I think he might just have to retire that shirt….
Hey, guys, can you let us in on the joke? 🙂
And now a few videos…
Muchas Gracias Todos! 🙂
Hasta luego! (3 more to go, Igna gets to spend his birthday at home with darling Alessandra, then it’s off to the Ukraine, Japan, and home for the holidays – and a night on a cruise ship? 🙂 ) And can’t forget Australia!
(Sorry, posting this a little early tonight, necessito duerma!)
From a photo from Piero in the plane, they landed safely in Quito and were greeted by adoring fans! They have been pretty lucky so far escaping the earthquakes and hurricanes. Prayers again to Mexico and Puerto Rico. I think it helped last time, let’s do it again!
Enjoy the photos and videos from Quito! Thank you to all owners of videos and pictures and to Gary Istok for his picture of Ecuador.
Let’s start with the meet/greet first this time…not too many of them, looks like most got a few pictures!
ILVOLO PRESENT ‘TRIBUTE TO THE THREE TENORES’, IN QUITO On Saturday, September 16, 2017, in the evening they gave a private concert in Puerto Rico. Yesterday (September 17, 2017) Il Volo arrived in Quito in the morning and at 6:00 p.m., dressed in black suits and white shirts, arrived on stage of the theater of the House of Ecuadorian Culture to pay homage to Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras and Plácido Domingo, The Three Tenors. Il Volo, a trio of young Italians made up of Gianluca Ginoble (baritone), Ignazio Boschetto (tenor) and Piero Barone (tenor), have been closely watched by The Three Tenors since April 25, 2009, when they performed Sole Mio. From that day the Italian public nicknamed them ‘The little tenors’. Since that presentation that was part of Ti lascio una canzione, an Italian Rai 1 reality show, eight years have gone by, four studio albums, five live shows, two Eps and 12 international tours including ‘Noche mágica’, a tribute to The Three Tenors, with whose music they came to the country to show two things: their talent in lyric singing and their ability to interact with the public.
From the shows of The Three Tenors, all you have to do is go to YouTube and see one of their performances. The lyrical singing concerts are no longer solemnity, and that is what Ginoble, Boschetto and Barone showed from the first song on Sunday night which was Nessun dorma until Grande Amore, one of the current lyric pop hits played in the team’s jersey and hundreds of fans stuck to the stage taking photographs. In the first part of this sound journey, which lasted two hours, Il Volo performed songs like Grenada, A Stealthy Tear, The Dance, E luceva le stelle, Torna a surriento and Ave Maria Mater. The first part ended with The Prelude of the Carmen interpreted by the orchestra, of 40 musicians, directed by the teacher Larry Salgado, that narrowed the hands of the musicians in several occasions. The tenacity and vocal extension of the members of Il Volo reached their best levels in the performances of Maria, My Way, Tonight, Cielito lindo and En Aranjuez with your love. Boschetto, the member of the trio who has changed the most in these eight years, was responsible for fostering interaction with the public, which included jokes with his handling of Spanish and with his fans. The final part of his presentation was marked by the interpretation of Italian popular music classics such as Sole mio, Libiamo ne ‘lieti calici and Volare, the most international of the Italian pieces and songs from his repertoire such as Mas que amor, Si me missing your look and Grande amore, with which they won the Song Festival of San Remo, in 2015.

n.d.r .: grazie semper a Morena per la segnalazione
From Top Show…
Here is a nice little video of little clips of the concert… for some reason I could not download it…
Ok, and I couldn’t resist putting this one in for all of the Ignazio fans from the Panama concert, I just found it the other night.
Gracias Quito!! Please forward to your friends in Quito. I saw we have at least 2 readers in Ecuador! 🙂
The guys made it safely out of Mexico, swiftly navigating both hurricanes and earthquakes to arrive in Santo Domingo on Sep 13 and Panama on Sep 15. They met with the usual amount of screaming and adoring fans at both airports and put on awesome shows as usual. They were also on a special show in Santo Domingo.
Credit to all owners of pictures and videos! Some are straight from Piero and Ercole.
Below, they are meeting with the Italian ambassador to Panama. The looks they capture on their faces!
Our guys were back in peak form to entertain the fans of Mexico! I think the rest did them well. Their first concert being in Chihuahua/Mexico City on September 7, followed by Monterrey and Guadalajara on September 9 and 10.
As Marie says, the earth always moves when they are around, but this time it was for real on September 7. Shortly after their concert, Mexico was struck with the 8.1 earthquake. They felt the tremors all the way into Mexico City. Of course, all the fans were worried and concerned and Il Volo and all of their management, assured us that they were fine. However, in the one article I read, when they got back to their hotel, they did move from the 25th floor, down to the first floor for the evening, as there was a slight amount of damage in one or two of their rooms.
From the many videos that I saw, it appears that the Mexican fans got a little more variety in their concert than we did. They got to hear a few and favorite “old” songs like, Mas Que Amor and a few others in Spanish along with Grande Amore in Spanish.
I found some nice videos and pictures of the Mexico City concert from Glenda Kaye’s Facebook page. Please see below:
The below pictures came from the Il Volo Facebook page – best pictures of Latin America tour so far…
And we can’t forget the smiling faces at the meet/greets!
Mexico City – Looks like it might have been a little chilly in there. At the bottom they all had their jackets on, but then seemed to either take them off or unzip them near the end.
