Ok, Who’s Going Where??

Although most of the fans on our site hail from the United States or Europe, we know we have a lot of fans that read our site from Mexico and South America.

So, if you are planning on going to any of the Latin American concerts, we want to hear from you!!  We’d also like to hear your personal reviews from the concerts.  We all know that the Latin American fans are the most crazy – heck the guys say the same thing!  🙂

If you are one of the crazy ones, or even the not so crazy ones, we want to hear from you!

Please respond to this post if you plan on going to any of the concerts, or feel free to write to our Gmail account address:  FlightCrew.NotteMagica2017@gmail.com and let us know.

Lorna and I came really, really close to going to Monterrey, but due to some logistical, financial, and safety reasons, we decided against it. 

Ignazio posted today on Instagram, and I’m assuming Twitter, a wistful looking picture of himself, looking out on Taormina, saying their vacation was nearing its end.  Yes, guys, it has gone quickly for you, I’m sure!  But probably not quickly enough for your adoring and awaiting fans in Mexico and Latin America!

For anyone that is going and has not purchased a meet/greet, the OMG group is offering a $50 discount toward the tickets, if you are part of the Il Volo fan club, but they are still $200 (that’s in US$)!  If you are interested, email me at the Gmail account address above.

Also, if there is ANYONE  out there that would like to submit an article, an idea, or write something for the site, please let me know.  🙂

Ciao!

Jana 

p.s. keep those survey answers coming!!  I am up to about 126 responses so far.  I will keep it open for maybe another week or so, then post some of the open ended answers!  🙂

Who’s Going Where…Europe!

OK Europe…It’s Almost Your Turn

In just three days the U.S. is returning your precious sons back to you. We took good care of them. We made them as comfortable as we could. We lavished them with love and gifts and are now returning them intact (that’s always a close call) and in good health. We really wanted to keep them, but we know it’s time to let them go home. Thanks for the loan.  How soon can we have them back?

From Rose Marie Paliobeis:
Due to an unexpected hospitalization my daughter-in-law and her mom cannot attend the Detroit concert, so I have 2 Detroit PBS Il Volo concert tickets (not meet/greet) I would like to sell. I paid $300 and will take $100 for them. I live in the Cleveland area and the tickets should be coming in the mail next week. PBS always has good seats, but they cannot tell me the specific seat #’s until they get them from their vendor. They are floor seats. I DON’T want the seats to be EMPTY. Anyone interested?

From Jana:
Detroit – One ticket – Includes Meet & Greet – 2nd row, orchestra pit. $400, neg.

A word from Myron re: Il Volo Fan Faire in the new season of 2017.

Jeannette and I had to wait for final word on this from Il Volo. But after talks with Barbara Vitali and other people in Il Volo management, it has been decided that the schedule this year will not allow time for an Il Volo Fan faire – that is one where the boys can attend for the amount of time that they suggested last spring. This tour has caused some frustrations in the planning and that is why it is so late being announced.

Last year’s tour was announced in spring of 2015 and tickets went on sale August of 2015 for a tour in February and March of 2016. This year the announcement goes out today and Monday and Wednesday at the end of November for a tour during the month of March (basically the same time as the last one). That means 3 months of prep for us vrs 7 months last time.

Barbara and we are going to plan further ahead when Il Volo has the next USA tour where the Fan Faire will fit into their schedule easier. So don’t be too sad because in the long run I think this will turn out better with more lead time.

A word about the tour concert in Las Vegas: This year the Vegas concert is being held at the Monte Carlo Hotel Casino where MGM has built a new state-of-the-art concert hall called the Park Theatre. I have seen the place in its finishing stages as it opens in late December. It seats 5200 people and has a huge stage. The Monte Carlo is right on the strip across from the MGM Grand. This place is beautiful and it will be a the largest concert hall in the city (not counting sports arenas).

The Il Volo concert is on Saturday, March 25 (same date at last year only on a Friday) of 2017 at 8:00pm.

TO ANYONE COMING TO VEGAS FOR THE MARCH 25 IL VOLO CONCERT:

Even though there is no Fan Faire per se this year Jeannette and I are planning to do dinner at the Italian restaurant right across the casino from the theater entrance. It is called: “d.Vino” We are aiming for 5:00pm and we invite anyone else that is coming to Vegas for the Il Volo concert to come and join us for dinner and then we walk across the casino to the new Park Theatre for the Il Volo concert.

Everyone is on their own. We will take a tally and make the group reservation for the restaurant. However, everyone that is coming must take care of their own concert tickets, dinner cost and hotel, etc. A chance for us Il Volo fans to get together in a “junior fan faire”. Please email Jeannette or me if you would like to have dinner at “ d.Vino” with us on Saturday, March 25 2017 at 5:00pm.

Note from Jana for DETROIT concert goers:

Just FYI – for those attending the Sat, Feb 27 show at the Detroit Fox Theatre

I just talked to someone that is a regular usher at the Fox and they are ushering the night of the Il Volo concert. She gave me some additional info on what to expect, etc. She said you can bring in a bag or purse to carry.

They will have merchandise to purchase – Il Volo has come out with some new things – t-shirts, mugs, pins, etc. So, you can put them in one of your bags, not sure if they will hand out bags? I imagine, so? You can bring your cell phone/camera, as we know Il Volo allows pictures. She said of course nothing professional/recording devices. She said the ushers do not take things away from you, unless they are abused, but they will ask you to put them away, if necessary. She said 7p is a good time to get there, but they won’t necessarily open the doors to the actual seating area at 7p. Likely, it’s about a half hour before, maybe around 7:30p, but she said there is no set time.

You will be ushered to your seat, if you have the more front rows/orchestra pit area. You can mill around and go up to the mezzanine, to look around, but be sure to take your ticket with you, in case someone asks. Just tell them you are looking and tell them you have tickets on the main floor, etc. She said to be sure not to get in the “line” for seating if you are looking around, or you will get stuck there – just go around. She says you can take pictures before the concert starts. There is also an elevator to get to the mezzanine. Doesn’t sound like security will be a big deal, but of course they will do a bag/purse check. We will need to mill around the back lobby area until the actual theatre doors open. I’m still planning on taking just my phone/camera/wallet thing. Not sure if I will buy anything or not. I want to be “object free” to stand and clap and not have to worry about anything falling or dropping, or losing anything!

Not sure what kind of line there will be at the “will call” so if your tickets are at will call, may want to be sure to get there early. 🙂 see you all there!

~Jana

A note from the Las Vegas Fan Faire Folk:

I want to thank all of you on the Fight Crew Blog who have chosen not only to come to The Il Volo Concert but also chose to attend the first ever Il Volo Fan Faire Convention at the Palms Hotel and Casino here in Las Vegas… Your participation will help make our goal of having fans in one place to honor Il Volo a success… We have reached our attendance goal, but we always have room for more… So if any of you would like to join our Fan Faire Convention, please email us at IlVolo@LV@outlook.com

Remember that we want all of Il Volo’s concerts to be sold out concerts and we have almost reached that goal at the Pearl theater at the Palms Hotel and Casino… So if you decide to see Il Volo and come to the fan convention, make your decision soon as the seats at the concert are almost sold out…

Thank you and see you soon.

Jeannette Giglio
