Il Volo Live at Detroit’s Fox Theatre September 5, 2013


Update: From “Gianluca Il Volo ‏ The most beautiful girl in the world!!!!!! avaruggirello ! It was a great concert! Thanks Detroit!”

Original Post: Rumor has it that some unbelievably exciting events took place at the Fox Theatre even before Il Volo started singing tonight!  As you all know, we have Flight Crew inside the concert this very moment,  but we haven’t had a tweet, text, email or Skype yet!

I am afraid we will have to wait for Marie and Loretta to get home to hear every single detail of their amazing  Il Volo Detroit adventure!

Very early this morning Gianluca tweeted, “Gianluca Il Volo
@GianGinoble  Greetings from Detroit!! It’s 6.27 AM.. It’s better if I go to sleep again.. .. xoxo”

Later we heard from Piero, ” Piero Barone Il Volo ‏‏@piero_barone
Thank you #Chicago! Last night you were Wonderful!  Tonight ready for #Detroit at the #FoxTheater “

In Case You Missed It……


Hi Everyone.

Well, the Chicago concert is history, but the stories and pictures will live on. More about that later.

Tonight the concert is at the Historic Detroit Fox Theatre. Il Volo has already arrived, ready to give another spectacular concert.

The Fox Theatre is located in downtown Detroit, near Grand Circus Park Historic District.
The Theatre opened in 1928 as a flagship movie palace in the Fox movie chain. Note that it was the first one built to include a speaker system for sound films. It was designated as a “National Historic Landmark” in 1989. The Fox was completely renovated in 1988.
The Fox hosted Shirley Temple in the 30’s, Elvis Presley in 1956 and subsequent concerts by Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Liza Minelli and Prince.
Il Volo is in good company, wouldn’t you say?

The most anticipated event tonight is that Marie, Loretta and Mary are attending. Those of you Flight Crew members that have been here a while are aware how important this is. Waiting for the pictures and stories coming later is the hard part! Who do you think hugs Ignazio first????

We hope you enjoyed the pictures sent by Kelly from last night’s concert! There will be great stories of Kelly’s experience. Our pretty resident teenager, Elizabeth has a wonderful story to tell, so come back later when they are posted. Ann has commented on hers already.

Twitter, Tweets and Keeks:
Gianluca tweeted last night: “Thank you Chicagoooooooo, we love you”
Gianluca tweeted this morning: “Greetings from Detroit, it’s 6:27am, It’s better if I go to sleep again”
Ignazio sent via Instagram:a picture of him hovering over a large dessert bowl, saying “Why!!! too delicious”

Check out the radio interview with WBEZ Chicago, World News. You can get the link on Mundial.

Good Luck and Love, tonight, Il Volo! I hope you’re ready for Marie and Loretta.
