The fifth stage of the Il Volo World Tour was certainly the most coveted stage for Ignazio, GianlucaandPiero.
How much emotion in remembering the first time these guys had hoped one day to be able to perform in THIS theater, and now it is their third time, and it is sold out!
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, very excited and beautiful and elegant in their velvet jackets.
Watch these beautiful videos taken by Nanktat whom we thank very much.

RoseMarie Paliobeis holding in his hands a sheet that says “HI , PIERO, IGNAZIO AND GIANLUCA, I AM ROSE MARIE FROM CLEVELAND OHIO MEMBER OF IL VOLO FLIGHT CREW”, how sweet you are RoseMarie! ❤️
And here is the RoseMarie review:
We went to the sound check. We were only 30. The boys came down from the stage to greet, shake hands and Gianluca hugged. We stayed and waited for the show. It lasted two hours and they sang all the old songs. None new. But nice!
And here the beautiful review of Elisa Marie, grazie mille!!
I just attended the February 6th Il Volo sold-out Show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. I love you Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero–you put on an awesome. wonderful, magnificent concert, with great songs, tremendous strong voices, humorous moments that I found myself jumping up and down from my seat to applaud you after every single song. The ending — Grande Amore was so thrilling. You related to us so well –when you said “We love you New York” I hope you heard us scream out that we love you back –a million times over, Please come back to New York as soon as you can.
All my love and appreciation–IL VOLO FOREVER!!
Elisa Marie from Warwick, NY
Even RCMH has passed.
After a long wait, everything ends in a few hours.
Ok, here’s the 2nd round with the next 4 concerts. For those going to the Detroit concert, I don’t have anything planned as a group, per se. Our little Detroit Il Volo Gals group are meeting for dinner in Dearborn before the concert and going down together to the concert from the restaurant. Perhaps we can agree to meet in a certain area of the lobby before the concert. Of those who are attending, let me know who has orchestra pit? 🙂
FEB 8 – ATLANTIC CITY Donna Cunnane
FEB 9 – DC/MARYLAND Chris Hudnell
FEB 11 – BETHLEHEM, PA Donna Cunnane Roseanne Ramunni and sister, Maria Camille Greco
FEB 13 – DETROIT, MI Jana VandeLaare & The Detroit Il Volo Gals! Rose Marie Paliobeis Lisa Joy Chris Hadley and sister Lucy Buzzee Jeanie Herzog and husband Jeannette Giglio
Ok, that’s all for now….
Thanks for sending in your Gianluca wishes.
A note about the concerts, seems they are cracking down on picture taking at the MG and other things… but at least it looks like we get a little something for our $300 besides a picture and the lanyard. Someone, sorry, can’t remember who it was at this point, sent in a picture of the bag and a few other items. 🙂 However, I’ve also read that they are nearly 2 hour concerts with no break. Pretty awesome!
p.s. ok, I’m getting a bit ticked off now, I’ve emailed the fan club every day and no one has gotten back to me yet! Everyone is asking me questions and I can’t even get in!
Thank you to those that have written in with a few details on the soundchecks, etc.
I’ve also been trying my best to answer the emails coming into the new gmail account. Thank you also for your reviews thus far, I’ve read them all and your comments. 🙂
However, please note that we do not have any direct communications with the guys…
We also appreciate all of the accolades!! However, if someone wants to help, let me know! 🙂
Reminder for last call for Gianluca birthday wishes!! Please either comment on these posts or send to the gmail address as many of you have already! 🙂
I’ve been getting numerous questions on the soundchecks for the various cities. I’m really sorry, but I cannot answer most of your questions.
I have been locked out due to some technical issues that they are supposed to be fixing, but until then, I cannot get in. I have also not received any emails myself about any of the soundchecks.
For those of you who have been to the soundchecks, can you post here on how to go about it? What you did and how it went? I’ve read from a few of you that it was very nice. I also know you are requested not to take pictures. Please respect that.
It’s also been communicated that the guys/management made a request to limit the closeness we have with the guys at the meet and greets. I.e. hugs and kisses. Please also be mindful of that if you feel you have the sniffles and have some hand sanitizer on hand, just in case.
I will get the next 3 or more who’s going where to publish tomorrow.
We got a nice review from John in CT, which we will publish shortly. Looking forward to hearing from more of you. Can be long or short, up to you! 🙂 I have received a few already from some of you…
I’ve also gotten questions on the dinner before the concert in Vegas. Please email Jeannette at firstname.lastname@example.org. Yes, that is MAIL, not gmail.
I’m sorry this is not pretty, but am doing this from my phone. Kitty in lap. Lol
Ciao for now! Hope everyone is enjoying the concerts.
And finally IL VOLO WORLD TOUR has arrived in BOSTON!
Finally, because we remember that in 2017, during the NOTTE MAGICA tour, the Boston stage was canceled due to snow storm.
So Boston fans, are you ready after such a long wait to rejoice with Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca again?
The concert takes place in the beautiful WANG Theater:
Here is a nice video taken during the rehearsal of the concert, posted by Gianluca.
But here they are, the show starts!

Donna Pothier’s review:
It was awesome ! They did not sing most of my faves, but someone said they sang a lot of Notte Magica, because Boston missed that one. They didn’t sing too many of their pop ones. After soundcheck which our part was short, they came down to say hello to everyone …about maybe 15 of us. Very nice.
We did not attend the sound check in Boston, but from what we heard there were 14 people who attended and the boys also greeted them, shook their hands and chatted briefly after they finished rehearsing.
It has been 4 years since the boys had been in Boston because 3 years ago their concert here was canceled due to a snowstorm, a fact that Piero mentioned during the concert, so it was a very enthusiastic sell out audience!
Our seats in Boston, at the magnificent Wang Theater, were in the third row center and throughout most of the concert the boys were right in front of us! It was an incredible experience!
There was a slight change in the songs, Ignazio and Piero did not sing “O Paese d’o sole” as their duet, but instead sang “Core ‘ngrato” which all three did at Foxwoods. Also they did “Volare” later in the program than at Foxwoods.
They sang 25 songs, a solid 2 wonderful hours worth! They also looked very handsome, Gianluca in his black tuxedo and Piero and Ignazio in their black suits.
There were over 100 people at the meet and greet after the show and due to the viruses and flu going around we were told not to hug or kiss the boys. It went very quickly because we couldn’t say much to them, so it was just really having a photo taken. The VIP package included a tote bag, autographed photo, luggage tag and lanyard. We can’t believe that these two incredible concerts are over and are now looking forward to Taormina in September!
Here is a photo of the VIP gifts.
And here’s Mary and Mark Minton at the Meet & Greet.
I had written to the Minton couple that John was also at the concert, in fact they met and made friends.
I am so happy with their meeting.
And this is John with Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca.“John, were you able to speak them in Italian? We await your impressions of the concert!!”
Even Boston has been archived so successfully.
Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero are truly incredible.
I thank everyone who sent videos, photos and reviews, you had fun and you made us have fun too!
A couple of days of rest and RCMH is waiting for Il Volo !!!!
Third stage of the World tour: Mashantucket, first stop in the US! 🇺🇸
Our boys, beautiful and elegant, send us to say that they are ready !! And you at the Foxwood, are you ready to get messed up by these 3 golden boys?
And here, the audience of Foxwood!! (John, I saw you!! 😉)
Let’s enjoy some short videos.
Mix of beautiful songs:
NO PUEDE SER
GRANDE AMORE + SHE’S ALWAYS A WOMAN
O SOLE MIO
Finally a short video of a solo by Ignazio: TONIGHT
The final greetings
Some photos of the concert:
In this stage, there was also the soundcheck, announced a few days ago by an email from IL VOLO. This is the first time for a public soundcheck in the US!
Mary and Mark Minton were at this concert, and they wrote this to me:
We were told to arrive at the beautiful Grand Theater at Foxwoods at 5 o’clock to meet for the sound check. When we went into the theater the boys were singing Mamma and they sounded amazing! There were only nine of us so we sat in the second row together and listened to them practice a few songs. When they were done they came over to greet us, shaking our hands and chatting a little. Gianluca’s mom was also at the sound check. After the sound check we were able to leave the theater until the doors opened at 7 o’clock. The show opened with “Nessun Dorma”, followed by “Il Mondo” and “Un Amore Così Grande” and “Surrender”. Gianluca’s solos were “Bridge over Troubled Water” and “Always a Woman to Me”. Ignazio sang “Memory” and “Tonight” and Piero sang “Love Story” and No Puede Ser”. Duet for Gianluca and Ignazio was “Maria”, for Gianluca and Piero was “My Way” and for Piero and Ignazio was “O Paese d’o sole”. The whole concert was a nice mix of English and Italian songs. “Volare”, “Libiamo ne’lieti calico”, “O Sole Mio” and the finale “Grande Amore” really had the audience on its feet singing along and with many standing ovations! The boys have never sounded better! Now on to Boston!
Another nice concert to add.
Thanks to Mary Minton for the report. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, take care of your voices, the journey is still long.
Boston, next stop !!
