As we know, our guys have been in Japan like for a week almost already and they are having a blast doing promos and being on various TV shows, etc. Looks like Max joined them the other day.
Tonight is their first concert in Japonne! I’m sure it will be amazing. As with the other concerts when they had 2 in the same country, we will be doing just one post on it. There is likely to be tons of material, so please bear with me if I only select a few things. The good thing is that it’s likely to be in English because I don’t think they know much Japanese. I did see a short interview somewhere and they were speaking English! The last concert is on Dec 1, so look for a post maybe on Monday or Tuesday for the Japan concerts.
A few days ago, I also got an email from the Il Volo Fan Club, as many of you may have, with the link to the Japan interview TV show Asaichi? Unfortunately, for one, it was all in Japanese and Italian. Only the songs they sang were subtitled, although in Italian! You also couldn’t download it and they were pretty specific about that. I tried several times, before I read where it said for FAN CLUB MEMBERS ONLY! Do not share, copy, download, etc.! You didn’t miss too much, I think they sang 3 songs. Although it is still cute to watch their expressions, even if you can’t understand a word they say! I think those 2 ladies there were the Jap-It interpreters…
I know many say, why join the fan club? Well, you get little treats like this one! Yes, it’s about $25 and you get this cute little card with their picture on it and their logo on the other side. Do be careful when you order it, as your confirmation purchase email is your actual ID number. You get your card about 6 weeks later, but there is no member number on it. There is also a “private” fan only Facebook like social site, as well, on the website. Here is the website if you want to order it and sign up: http://www.ilvolomusic.com/en/ This is their official website and at the top you will see “shop.” You can click on there and sign up! All that is being offered on there right now is the membership. I’m not sure what they did with all of their merchandise they had. Maybe they are coming out with a new line of things?
Another tidbit… the new Energetix catalog with the guys on it is coming out on December 1. We were just informed of this the day after Thanksgiving. I will do a short post on this with the link to the new catalog on December 1. With each order from 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 A really big Grazie Mille to Susan T. and Anne Q. for being my 1st (2) orderers from this site! 🙂 It will be a few weeks before your orders come in, but it will be worth the wait!
It was a harrowing weekend for many. Several of you were faithfully posting and responding over the last few days, sending thoughts and prayers to all in Florida.
Well folks, many prayers were answered, and perhaps a few were not, but as far as we know here, no fans, friends, or family members were lost to Irma. Laura was keeping us all up to date on the weather where she was.
There was an instagram photo from Il Volo Miami, of the Miami hospital with torrential wind and rain. I’m guessing they must have been a medical person and had to stay at the hospital.
An update on me….many blessings are certainly upon me and my family. (Chris said perhaps – maybe Ignazio’s blessing is still with me?) 🙂 Both my mother’s and aunt/uncle’s places were spared. My aunt/uncle lost power, but that was all. Mom came home today to find her place was securely intact with both power and water! Others, did not fare so well. All she lost was the tree in front. She said she saw many that lost roofs or their lanais. A friend, just a block or so over from her, lost their roof and their place is now condemned. They had just purchased it a few years ago.
Although many are still without power, things seem to be getting back to normal pretty quickly there in many places, as if nothing had happened. Definitely a lot of pictures of downed trees and beached boats, but miraculously, few reports of deaths. Mom said Publix was already open, however, they had little left.
I’m not sure how many of you saw the post from AAIV, but they will be “slowing down” the news on their site due to personal commitments and other time constraints. Our crew here can certainly understand, as we struggle as well at times. That being said, we are going to keep to the “weekends free” unless something important pops up. This will give our writers a little more time for other things. We will certainly miss AAIV, as they always had very good news and information about the guys. They said they will continue the site and keep it live, but on a limited basis.
Also, a reminder to send your wishes for Igna’s birthday. It is coming up quickly.
The survey site is also still open.
Pat and Jane are on a little hiatus right now and they put a few articles in storage and there are a few others in there. I will continue the concert review for Mexico tomorrow and next up is Santo Domingo on September 13. Let’s hope the guys don’t meet with any more natural disasters!
Thank you again for all of your well wishes, prayers, thoughts and inspirations, to keep us all going this last weekend. To especially Loretta, Laura, and Jeanine…
p.s. look for some more changes and surprises to be coming through….we will be changing with the winds of time….
Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
