Il Volo Mundial provided this information for you guys.  It appears that Il Volo will be appearing on the Sabado Gigante Television show at some point.  It’s unclear to us if they will be appearing live for all of the listed dates, or not.

The full Facebook Post is translated by Bing to say: Special announcement of Sábado Gigante on Twitter! This month in Sabado Gigante: GLORIA TREVI, RICARDO MONTANER, LARRY HERNANDEZ, JESSE and JOY, IL VOLO and many more! The dates of recording of SABADO GIGANTE in April will be: 16, 17, 22, 23 and 26. Make your reservation 305-471-8262. Free tickets! Thanks to @solepicero and our correspondent   Giulia Giana report…

To find out more about the show, check out their Wikipedia page

Throwback Thursday

The Guys have been tweeting about working more in the last few days.  Piero tweeted that they are recording in Bologna; Gianluca mentioned that he is working hard for us (well, he actually used the word, “y’all”, which cracked me straight up!  Speaking my language; I love it! 😀 ); and it looks like they were all in Milan (what could they be up to?).

outline question

With the US and Canadian tour coming up (not soon enough for most of us), seeing them perform with another great musician, striking out and talking about original music and their fame growing throughout the world, I think it is an exciting time to be an Il Volo fan.  So, on this Trowback Thursday, I’d like to go back to when they took North America by storm–just to remember how it all began.  Enjoy!

Il Volo Show On TV?

tvbloglogotwitter

It might be.  In an article found on an Italian TV blog,  http://www.blogtv.it , it appears that Il Volo has become the muse for a fictional television series that is in the works.

The article can be found here —> http://www.tvblog.it/post/548911/fiction-italiane-2014-15-virna-lisi-in-e-la-mia-famiglia-alessio-boni-in-la-catturandi , and the paragraph for consideration is copied and translated by Bing below:

Nuova Fiction Mediaset: secondo Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni la Ciao Ragazzi di Claudia Mori sarebbe già al lavoro per realizzare una fiction dedicata a Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone e Ignazio Boschetto, i tre tenorini che dopo aver partecipato a Ti lascio una canzone hanno creato il gruppo Il volo, ottenendo successo in tutto il mondo.

New Fiction Mediaset: according to Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni , Claudia Mori would already be working to create a fiction dedicated to Gianluca Ginoble and Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, the three tenorini that after participating in Ti lascio una canzone have created the group, gaining success around the world.
Hmmm….we might have to keep an eye out to see what happens with this…  😉  Thanks to All About Il Volo for the heads up.  🙂
Moscow Welcomes Il Volo
Il Volo took their first trip to Russia this week to be guest stars of a show with the great, Toto Cutugno.  By all accounts that I have read, Mr. Cutugno is well-loved and respected throughout the country, selling out shows even now at the age of 70.  I’d imagine being a part of one of his shows has given our guys even more exposure; how exciting for them!
ceciliacesario
Joining them as quest stars was Ms. Ceclia Cesario, also from Italy.  To learn more about her, you can visit her website, http://www.ceciliacesario.it.
It appears that this concert was highly anticipated in Moscow, going so far as to hold an open rehearsal for the press only before the show, which is mentioned in an article
There was also a TV interview conducted and aired on Russian TV, which can be seen
Il Volo and Toto

As usual in the Il Volo fandom, there are pictures galore among the many fan sites.  Is anyone surprised by that?  We know IlVolovers rock!  Please check them out and comment below to let us know some of your favorites.  🙂

There are also a smattering of videos available as well, the best of which have links provided here.  I hope that they let you feel as if you were a part of it.  Please enjoy and thank those groups and individuals that took time to share them with us!

Il Volo On Hand to Celebrate Business Opening in Milan

If you follow Gianluca on Twitter, you might remember this tweet:

Mar 17

Ready to go to Milan

As is often the case, he left us wondering just what he was up to since neither Piero or Ignazio mentioned it (I double checked.  And of course we know that Ignazio has an especially compelling reason to be out of social media right now).

On March 20, we found out what he was doing there.  Singing, “Il Mondo,” Il Volo participated in the opening of Eataly Milan Smeraldo, a place described as “ a temple of taste dedicated to the incomparable flavors of Italian cuisine.” EatalyMilanSmeraldo

The video was provided by Eataly Milan Smeraldo and can be seen

I think the general consensus among the comments from our friends at All Things Il Volo is that  we always love to see the guys, but the video clip including them is too short.  😉

To read more about Eataly Milan Smeraldo, you can read this article from, “Where Milan” at http://www.wheremilan.com

The Il Volo Experience…in 80 Seconds

In honor of the upcoming concert tour, enjoy this time-lapse video of a concert in Detroit from ilvolomusic:

Il Volo Professional ~~ March 11, 2014

Hi, Everyone!

I’m back from my vacation, and it seems like it’s been forever since I’ve been here.  Mostly because I was rushing around on the evening that I left and walked away leaving my computer packed and ready by the front door…and not realizing it until I was on the plane ready to taxi down the runway.  *face palm*  Working from my phone didn’t work out so well with our spotty wi-fi either.

Anyway, I’m back and ready to catch up with my Il Volo family.  🙂

 

Il Volo Conquers New York…Again…

While I was gone, our guys made what must be the quickest trip ever to the US, the focal point being their performance as guests with Laura Pausini in New York at The Theater at Madison Square Garden.

By all reports, Il Volo was as amazing as always.  According a piece compiled from several resources to give us an impression of the concert (by the ladies at All About Il Volo), they got a very warm reception the minute they walked out on stage:

For those of us that like a simple play-by-play,
here is an article from i-Italy Magazine:

Bringing Their Music to the Young People

Of course, it’s no news to us that our guys are amazing and are gaining fans set on abjectly adoring them, but it just warms my heart when I read of it happening.  It seems like the powers that be at the Modesto Gallo Center are excited to be able to be a part of it as well.

logo  Use this link —> http://teamilvolo.blogspot.com/2014/02/modestos-gallo-center-targets-younger.html#more

to head over to our affiliate, Team Il Volo, to read about how they feel that Il Volo will help them appeal to a younger demographic–which we also know is one of Il Volo’s goals.

 

With a Song in…His…Heart

It has been said that another goal of Il Volo’s is to include some of their own original music on future albums, a goal I know I’m hoping will be accomplished very soon.  In the meantime, Ignazio has debuted an original composition as a songwriter and composer!  I know we’ve all see the video, but we can watch it a few more times, right?  Singing,  “Come in Paradiso”, Ms. Katya Pantaleo:

Again, thanks to the ladies at All About Il Volo, there are several translations available

If those lyrics don’t make you melt, nothing will.  swooning

Till next time.
