~ Il Volo – C’e Posta Per Te ~ Medley Notte Magica

Many thanks to Victoria, one of our Flight Crew, who  sent in this beautiful video clip that her 90 year old Il Volo fan friend sent to her!  Victoria was wondering who the woman with the dark hair was and what was the story behind this video?  So, I turned to our faithful and ever ready Italian Correspondent Extraordinare,  Daniela, who gave us the tender story.

 

The story is simple.  There are six children, 5 females and 1 male.  The woman with the dark hair is their mother, who has made many sacrifices for them.   Four years ago they lost their dad who was a sailor.  They were not wealthy, but led a simple life,  but always cheerful and their dad was always there for them.  These children had promised dad to take care of  their mother, but for 4 years she is always sad.   

So the children, to reward her, take her to this program to show her all their love.  To surprise her, they called IL VOLO,  knowing how much she admired them.   Piero, Ignazio, and Gianluca, gave her nice words of support, a bracelet, and sang for her.  The whole family was invited to the concert in Rome.

 The presenter is Maria De Filippi who in Channel 5 is really an important person.  In this video you will notice that she looks admirably with the boys as they sing.

Final US dates for Notte Magica movie!!

Ok, this is a drop everything, grab your girlfriends, husband, etc. and run to the theatre if it is near you!  There are 4 final US dates for the showing of Notte MagicaTHREE of them are all on the same date – Wednesday, November 15 – yes, merely 2 days away!

Thanks to a heads-up reminder from Marion!!  Our dear “behind-the-scener” on this site – she is always looking out for us!  🙂

There is one date in Wilcox, Arizona on December 8, TWO in Florida (Naples & Coconut Creek (Boca), and one in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, all on November 15.  See map below!

Those of us north of the Mason-Dixon line, could surely use a little warmth right now.  It barely got to 30 degrees here in Detroit on Friday!  Brrr…!  Although a slight warm-up is headed our way.  So, get online and find some cheap airfares.  I hear it’s still in the 90s down there in Florida. 

One last time – for the guys…. 🙂

Notte Magica – Kiev, Ukraine! October 23, 2017

nottemagica header

Yes, folks, the tour is winding down with Kiev, and just Japan after this one.  Soon the memories of these concerts will be like autumn leaves, blowing in the wind.  As the remnants of their voices rustle in our head like falling leaves, and we rake up the memories, let’s treasure these last two cities….

Let’s start with the meet/greet!  Looks like there was a small crowd for this one and the lady in red got 3 pictures!

Notte Magica – Adios South America! Santiago, Chile – September 30, 2017

nottemagica header

 

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!

So nice of someone in the audience to give them these shirts with their birthday days on them!  Even nicer of them to wear them!  🙂 

“They did it their….way….!”  🙂 

I may even have to come up with a new sign/logo after this tour is over!!  Hmmm…???  🙂

 

Ciao,

Notte Magica – “They went Rio – de Janeiro!” September 28, 2017

nottemagica header

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!

Piero, in suspenders?  Maybe Igna should give them a whirl?  🙂 

 

 

 

 

We leave you with one more review from South America – Chile!

We saw Ercole posting he was flying back to Italy, but it looks like Piero detoured to Miami, but where are the other two misteriosos?  Only Twitter and Instagram know… 🙂

Alessandra posted an adorable picture of Franz, waiting for his master’s arrival!franz  (Oh, yes, I can see the comments now…  lol)

 

Til next time…

Sao Paolo~Brazil~ Concert Review, by Stella Maris Bortolotti

 

nottemagica header

I have a Brazilian friend.  You think that I have friends everywhere, yes, but I have to thank  IL VOLO.

Her name is Stella Maris Bortolotti.  She participated in all three concerts that the guys did at Espaco Das Americas in Sao Paolo, in September 21,23,24.

Stella Maris  also made about 200 pictures all very beautiful.

These are her words:

I can say that I have experienced moments of great emotion!

The three guys presented to us their great talent, bringing the audience to moments of pure enchantment.

At every applause we got up, you know how much we were excited about!

The three Italians with their beautiful voices (wonderful!), they presented us with their affection (they are very friendly) with their grace, with humility, with their charisma.

In addition to presenting beautiful songs (tribute to the three famous tenors: Pavarotti, Placido and Carreras), I can say that the presentations were a show, everyone was entertaining.

At some point they invited a little girl of about five years to step on stage to sing with them, really sweet, and they invited all the fans to approach the stage.

They treated everyone with great tenderness.

I was in the front row. Just next to the stage and my camera, though not professional, is very good.

They are special. I have already loved them and now I love them even more!

3 days of sold-out !!

It was 3 really magic nights.
