The first of five summer concerts this year in Italy has begun, in Asti.
In these days, several journalistic articles have announced the arrival of the boys, presenting them as true stars, they had never been in concert at Asti.
Let’s start with the soundcheck.
And here they are, ready to start, beautiful and elegant.
Thus the “Volomania” infects all the public in Piazza Cattedrale. Accompanied by the Symphonic Orchestra of Asti, the three tenors of Il Volo and their repertoire of “Magic Night: A Tribute to Three Tenors” – a tribute to Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Josè Carreras.
The program seems to repeat the program of NOTTE MAGICA of Florence.
Directed by the master Marcello Rota.
Some amateur videos have arrived, the first one, which is out on stage, of the boys, has no audio. The others yes, we listen to some songs.
But they also sang IL MONDO:
Along with L’AMORE SI MUOVE, GRANDE AMORE and VOLARE.
Attention to this next video:
LIBIAM NE LIETI CALICI begins and Gian looks for words on the musical score and does not find the page. Starting slightly late, he does not remember the words, then makes a sign to the guys who understand, Ignazio and Piero go on in his part and at the end Ignazio hugs him.
It can happen to anyone, but this gesture by Ignazio and Piero is wonderful !!
IL VOLO with the municipal council of ASTI
In the afternoon, the guys with Torpedine presented the book RICOMINCIO DAI TRE.
Another really nice thing is that last night on the streets of Asti were hanging messages that said:
I LOVE GIANLUCA
IL VOLO IS OURS
WE CAN COME ON TOUR WITH YOU
PIERO I LOVE YOU
IL VOLO VITA
IGNAZIO I LOVE YOU
Another thing to report, the friend of Ignazio, Roberto Amade published this post:
“I really want to do a big good luck to my little brother Ignazio and my friends of Il Volo who will perform tonight in Asti, near my house !! I will not be there but with the heart I will be there ….. and who else can go because it is a really beautiful show!”
I would say that the boys had an extremely long and heavy day, and there was also a little rain at the beginning of the concert.
They will be tired but certainly happy for this beautiful concert.
July 1, 2016 ……… I can not believe it’s already been two years since that fantastic night, where in the warm sunset of Florence, you could feel in the air the magic that these three young boys were giving, at the public present.
It was wonderful and I was there.
It was my second concert and I was very excited, it was also the first time I used my daughter’s camera, I made videos that re-post to you, sorry for the various tremors and my voice in the background.
The magic was, that no one knew what to expect, we all know that the boys have incredible voices, but when they started with the Nessun Dorma, I think all those present held their breath to the end.
“O my God, it’s very difficult”, I thought, and even the boys were very emotional. There was a palpable tension in the air.
At the final note, we could not believe our ears, we all got up in a very long applause and a few teardrops wet our eyes. They were very good, we were all very proud of them, and they were tighten their hands, hugging each other, moved to be successful.
The various songs went by fast and the evening was beautiful. The muggy heat of the afternoon had given way to a nice evening temperature and Piazza Santa Croce was truly magnificent and the public really very much involved.
Between one song and another there were presentations made by the boys themselves, repeated twice, one in Italian and one in English and this was funny because Piero said: “Rewind everything and repeat because the grandmother in the front row has not heard well.”
There were also strange moments, because it was full summer and it was hot and yet, because the CD would come out at Christmas, they also sang a Christmas song, which was not added on the CD.
And Gianluca occasionally said, “Congratulations, Merry Christmas!”
The boys were really elegant, and the stage was huge, with a large chandelier that came down from the roof and emanated lights of manycolors.
People reacted with enthusiastic applauses for their great affection, but also because they recognized the skill of the boys of IL VOLO.
But why in the title of today I wrote “Everything happened for a truly magical night”? Because of the videos I had taken that night…. once I returned home, I wanted to share them with someone.
It was about a year that I was following the IL VOLO FLIGHT CREW website, but I had NEVER commented, I read the various comments that I liked so much.
In fact, at that moment, I took courage and made a comment, attaching one of the videos.
Immediately Marie contacted me and told me to write my impressions on the concert and to attach all my videos that today, I’m re-posting.
I received so many very beautiful and enthusiastic comments of the videos, even if they were shaky and with background voices.
I immediately felt accepted by the group, indeed part of the group.
After three months I was able to meet Marie and Jane personally, what a wonderful meeting.
A few days before going to Florence I read that even Jana would be there to see NOTTE MAGICA, but I still did not make direct contact with Jana so we could meet and get to know each other personally. There will certainly be a next time.
Since then, every day I check the page of our beautiful website several times, and I always feel very close to all of you, even if you are on the other side of the world.
By now I have learned to know most of you. I have so many fond friends, I’m lucky.
The architects of all this are three boys of gold, our dear Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio.
Their wonderful voices console us and their family affairs, into which to our great joy, they allow us to peek, make us proud and also very united, as if we were all part of a large family.
This beautiful magic was also repeated in Verona, where I got to know other members of our crew, such as Mary and Mark Minton, Sue and Graham Hemshall, Jeannette Giglio, Susan Tafanelli, to whom I send a big hug.
Within a few days I will go to the concert of Marostica, and I am sure, it will be a beautiful concert.
I will try to get as close as possible to our boys, to whom I will certainly bring the affection of the whole crew.
I hope to be able to make good videos that I will certainly send you with a detail of the whole concert.
This is the whole story, for now, of how I started writing for Flight Crew, all because of a Magic Night.
Here is the photo of our arrival in the beautiful Florence to attend the concert, my husband and I.
Did you see that beautiful shirt I was wearing ??? I took the first shirt on the fly !!
I send a hug to the whole crew, and I hope I have not bored you too much.
Every day, there is a special announcement that makes us happy.
After the news of the participation in the
WIND MUSIC AWARD on June 5th and RADIO ITALIA LIVE – THE CONCERT on June 16th
we hear of another very important date:
The trio, IL VOLO arrives at the Marostica Summer Festival.
Marostica – The billboard of the fourth edition of Marostica Summer Festival is still enriched. After the announcement of the presence of Alvaro Soler, on the stage on 18 July, the next day, Thursday 19, in the chess square, IL VOLO will return. Ignazio Boschetto, Piero Barone and Gianluca Ginoble, will in fact present their project, on tour since 2016, which is titled“NOTTE MAGICA – A Tribute to the Three Tenors”. After the two lucky events of 2014 and 2015, sold out in every place order, the three tenors, who in these years have won successes in all corners of the world, with their typically Italian voices and a repertoire ranging from Opera to pop music, thanks to Due Punti Eventi they announce a new concert, in the Scaliger town, which has always responded with generosity and affection.
The one scheduled for July 19th, beginning at 9:30 pm, will be a show in which the successful melodies of the Neapolitan, Italian and international repertoire will alternate with pieces taken from great musicals and with the most famous opera arias.
On the stage with the orchestra, the trio will also present some pop-inspired pieces and other surprises.
Pre-sales of the “IL VOLO” concert will be available shortly online and in the Ticketone and Vivaticket circuits.
On 1 July 2016 in Piazza Santa Croce in Florence Il Volo brought on stage for the first time “NOTTE MAGICA – A Tribute to the Three Tenors”, broadcast in prime time on Canale 5; the show has seen the participation of Placido Domingo and marked the beginning of a world tour that debuted on March 4 at the Radio City Music Hall in New York, registering sold out. After 15 stages in the United States, the tour arrived first in Europe (29 dates) and then in Latin America and, finally, in Japan.
Marostica Summer Festival is organized by Due Punti Eventi, with the artistic direction of Valerio Simonato, in collaboration with the Municipality of Marostica and with the patronage of the Veneto Region and the Province of Vicenza. The event supports Woman For Freedom, donating a number of tickets to the shows to support the association’s activities.
Ok, I think it’s great news, a whole concert, I think I’ll do everything to go there.
There will be Magic Night songs, but also pop songs and some surprises (maybe the new single), moreover, from Roncadelle where I live in Marostica, it’s only 100 miles, and then I’ve never seen Marostica and the famous Piazza where every year plays the Chess Game with real people.
No, I can not miss, Marostica, wait for me!
How many of you would like to be here, at that time ??
Meanwhile, as we wait on 19 July, we enjoy this piece of concert taken at Marostica in 2014, beautiful CARUSO.
THIS NEWS JUST IN!
Il Volo returns live in Italy in July with five dates in the following cities:
July 15 – ASTI – Piazza Cattedrale July 16 – CODROIPO (UD) – Villa Manin July 19 – MAROSTICA (VI) – Piazza Degli Scacchi July 26 – CERVIA (RA) – Piazza Garibaldi July 28 – TAORMINA (ME) – Teatro Antico
This year, Il Volo participated in the Ferrero Rocher Golden Symphony in Mexico City, Mexico, on December 13, 2017. Here is the video from you tube – thank you to owner!!
Also to those lucky enough to get the cable channel Las Estrellas, they can watch it on Saturday, December 23 at 11:00p, but not sure of the time zone? On here it is listed at 12:00am – 1:00am. Here is the link I found it on: (it also says Dec 24?)
The only new theme of the album Notte Magica – Tribute to the three tenors is Ave Maria, Mater Misericordiae, composed by Giorgio F. Pintus and Romano Musumarra. This song, although it was included in the album, was not interpreted by Il Volo in the concert held on July 1, 2016 in the Piazza Santa Croce in Florence, during which the NotteMagica album was recorded live, because it had to be performed during the World Youth Day, in front of Pope Francis.
Unfortunately, Il Volo could not keep up with the Krakow appointment due to technical problems, and the live performance of the song had to be postponed until March 2017. Il Volo sang live for the first time AveMaria Mater Misericordiae, on March 2, 2017 in Easton (USA), although its official presentation was at the concert of Radio City Music Hall, in New York, on March 4, 2017.
Since the first performance, the song has become a favorite of the Magic Night tour viewers. It is a small jewel, in the purest style of IlVolo, which perfectly adapts to the vocal characteristics of the group. The song, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, begins softly in a low tone with the voice of Gianluca Ginoble, followed by Ignazio Boschetto and increases in intensity in the refrain by Piero Barone. But the climax comes at the end of the song, when Ignazio Boschetto attacks the highest notes and the three voices finally come together in a great harmony. The text is a perfect combination of tradition and modernity and manages to be poetic without being antiquated.
Below is a video of the execution of the Ave Maria, Mater Misericordiae on the day of its presentation in New York on March 4, 2017.
