~~ Piero ~~ by Luce Blu

The day of the last Magic Night concert, my friend published this letter addressed to Piero.

She used words loving and very delicate and I really hope that Piero has read it.

I also thought about translating it for all  the Crew.

Good morning Piero … and finally the last “Magic Night” has arrived.  I dare not imagine how you can feel, especially you.  Writing the fine word on this extraordinary project will not be easy for many reasons lived, expressed and felt .

“Magic Night” was difficulty, sacrifice, obstacles but also passion, love and countless, satisfaction and recognition …!

image

You have grown both as artists and as people.   Every experience can bring as much or as little.   It can be beautiful or ugly, but something will always remain … and this something in any case is important and indelible.

You’ll see all is well … The wonderful journey you have undertaken with this project will not be the only one and will be remembered along with many others just as extraordinary, indeed certainly more, considering your young age!

image

It will be foolish of me, and maybe you will find it exaggerated, but this does not change the fact that for me it is so .  My throat knot is for tonight, thinking of “Magic Night” that has combined everything I love most of music: the bel canto, the lyric and voices (especially yours), but also for the indelible memory of that particular magical night in the enchanting scenery of the Ancient Theater of Taormina, where I managed to meet you and embrace you … without words!

image

For me, as for many other fans who follow you affectionately, it was an endless emotion.

A sweet caress for the soul and so will always be.  Waiting for your next adventure with the new masterpiece, I just have to hold you in a last and more than warm embrace.  From the first to the last note you will give joy to all!!!

image

Ps:  if anything you have read up to here, I hope I did not  bore  you with my thoughts poorly expressed and outlandish to the end … thanks for everything.

Il Volo – Groundhog’s Day??

Hello folks, i just thought I’d share my evening with you tonight….

Chris and I dutifully volunteered tonight for Il Volo night at PBS.

Nine-thirty came and we anxiously awaited the start of our guys.  I was finishing up a pledge, so did not realize the Nessun Dorma they were playing was at the END of the concert, until the credits started to roll!

What was happening??  We did not have a clue!

So, they tried to fix it, but it was like on continuous repeat of the last few songs.

I clapped briefly to libiamo and enjoyed it again, and again,  and again… I think like 6 times, at least?

We eventually went just totally live, and they were just talking.  They must have been doing something right, people were still calling and ordering our guys!

It was also freezing cold in here tonight!

I even told the one person how to say Ignazio’s name and she repeated it well, however, she was a smart girl and said she would not attempt it on air.  Unfortunately,  not so for the other speaker, Fred.  😦

Anyhow,  an interesting night it is.

Writing to you, LIVE, from Wixom, Michigan, Detroit PBS!

~ The Magic Night Tour Is Over ~ by Melina

 The last concert of the Magic Night tour has ended.   Melina summarizes all the emotions that have accompanied us in this beautiful year.

Our loves have inflamed and bewitched even the most composed and peaceful Japanese, who are known for their reserved nature and not  used to manifest too much impetus and ardor. And with these images that warm the heart, let me take a little consideration:

The Kawasaki concert was the last of this endless world tour of “Magic Night”.  We’ll miss them!!

We will remember the applause, standing ovations, overwhelming euphoria, and the love of the public.  We will remember the involvement of all the senses. We will remember the smiles and the happiness of our boys, their still wonder of the success.  We will remember their jokes and the laughter that they have snatched from viewers.  We will remember the emotion and the enchantment they have aroused in people… their beautiful voices  and the passion of their performances.

 

image

There will be other tours and everything will start again, and there will still be shows in every corner of the world, but this closes a chapter that made us thrill, rejoice, become proud.   

image

This Tour was more of a challenge than others, because it was a difficult and not very commercial genre to which not everyone was accustomed.   A challenge won in all respects and on all fronts, which gave irrepressible triumphs, demonstrating, if still we needed it, that “the trio of wonders” are capable of performing and captivating whatever they sing. It is right that after so much effort there is for the boys a little rest and time to reflect and prepare new projects, which will certainly surprise and give great sensations. We will keep these memories in the heart, and we will wait anxiously and with trepidation for the next artistic achievements that will make us, as always, jump with enthusiasm.

Just being grateful ~ Marie

How can mere music make me this happy?

Why do three young faces cause my heart to flutter so?

Why am I so fortunate to live the remainder of my life knowing that every day those two things will bring me such joy?

What a glorious first thought when my eyes open in the morning.

God, I don’t know what I have ever done to deserve this gift, but thank you so much!

Our guys in Japan – Last Notte Magica! Nov 29 & Dec 1, 2017

nottemagica header

This is it, the LAST two concerts of the official Notte Magica tour!  They did it.  They made it!  What a year it has been.  A little bittersweet now….  yes, we were tiring just a little tad, for they were the same songs, just a different city.  But as the tour progressed to the different countries and continents, we saw them loosen up a bit and almost get back to their old crazy selves!  It was so nice to see – we missed that about them  Yes, they are growing up, not children anymore, but of course, we like to see them having a good time… 🙂

Here are some videos I found on You Tube, etc.  Thanks to all owners of videos/pictures.  🙂

 

And, we cannot forget the smiling and happy faces of the lucky folks at the meet & greets!

https://www.omgvip.com/il-volo-november-29-2017/      Wow, only 10!

https://www.omgvip.com/il-volo-december-1-2017/  Ok, a few more here, but not that many…. wonder if they had more time with them in Japan?


Their next engagement will be December 13 in Mexico, for the Ferrero Rocher concert.  I’m sure they’ be singing some songs still from Notte Magica.

Right now, they are all back in Italy, somewhere…. I imagine enjoying a short break before heading back to Mexico, then it’s off to Australia, and then home, home at last, where they will be working on their next surprises for us!  Will they tour next year?  Only the Il Volo Shadow knows….. 🙂    Ah, wouldn’t we all want to be that shadow?

Til next time….

Il Volo & Energetix – New Catalog! December 1, 2017

This is what we have been waiting for, for the last several months!  We are actually very lucky, as their new catalog does not come out usually until January sometime, but it is now out just in time for Christmas!!

I told the Energetix folks they need to contact Il Volo so they can do a promo for the catalog release in the United States – you never know…. 🙂

Also, Loretta and other Canadian fans, I checked my site and you can order from my site if you live in Canada.   Oddly, for some reason, if you live in Italy, it’s not a country they can ship to, which is odd, since Germany is right next to Italy?  I have asked the management what they suggest.  I did also hear that I may have to order what you want and ship it to you.  Which, if you really want something, I would be happy to do it.  🙂 

So, here it is!  (They said the catalog and merchandise should be loaded on December 1.  Just in case it isn’t, check back every so often.  Since I am writing this the night before, but the link should be updated with the new catalog, etc.)

I promise not to bombard you anymore with Energetix after this.  But it is our guys and it’s all because of them, I started selling this jewelry.  It really is a win-win situation.  They will gain new fans from Energetix customers and distributors, and we gain the health and wellness and beauty, of wearing or using this magnetic jewelry and other products.  It really does work for most persons!

 

  With each order guys catalogfrom the website, you will get a catalog!  There are several pieces on the site that are less than $50.  So, order early to get in time for Christmas.  It will be a 2-in-1 gift!  You can keep the catalog and give away the jewelry, or keep the jewelry and give away the catalog!   Either way, it’s a win-win situation!!   https://janamarie.energetix.tv/?loc=en      It will be a few weeks before your orders come in, but it will be worth the wait!

 

Grazie mille/Fiel danke!

~ Good Singing and Good Looking ~ by Daniela

As everyone knows, IL VOLO is in Japan where they are preparing for the two concerts in Tokyo and Kawasaki.

Tokyo has long been sold out, but Kawasaki has also been sold out since yesterday.

During these days the guys are doing promotions and interviews and today this beautiful article was published and translated on the Facebook page, IL VOLO JAPAN FAN SITE.

IL VOLO is currently staying in Japan. As you can see, they are a charming Italian threesome. When they got off the bus of the official they said, “We have been wanting to visit Japan for a long time.”  They gave a greeting in remembered Japanese as, “Ohayou Gozaimasu!” (Good morning!).

They shook hands and greeted  each and every staff member. During a walk in the town of Akasaka for a photo session, they saw a sample of food at the shop of Soba (Japanese noodle), took a selfee, and were sharing jokes.
Even though they debuted seven years ago, they looked like junior high school students on a school trip.

If street people noticed and said “Oh, IL VOLO!?”  They cheerfully answered, “Hi!”   They even said hello to a child in Italian.
They were cheerful, energetic, friendly, bright and so to say, looked like very ordinary boys.

But when they stand on the stage, the atmosphere is completely being changed.  They are a vocal trio of  tenors  who sing everything from opera to pops. The tour received great success both in Europe, America and South America. They can be described as nothing but “Super Entertainer,” standing on the big stage in a tuxedo and singing ” ‘O SOLE MIO, ” or “Nessun Dorma.”

 

Received by the Italian Ambassador.

The boys are extremely nice and playful, but when they start singing they become serious professionals.  This contradictory feature makes them very enjoyable to people.  We Japanese call it GAP MOE.
I guess the word of GAP MOE might be suitable for Il VOLO themselves.

This week’s YEO will shoot and interview with IL VOLO ( from the left, Ignazio, Gianluca, Piero).

We want to update their charm every day until Friday and introduce them.

Please enjoy “IL VOLO Festival” for 2 weeks!!
