Hi Everyone,

Tonights concert is at The Tampa Bay Times Forum, on the West Coast of Florida.

The Tampa Bay Times Forum is home to the National Hockey League’s Tampa Bay Lightning and the AFL’s Tampa Bay Storm. The venue was referred to as the Ice Palace from its opening in 1996 through 2002 when it was commonly called the St Pete Times Forum until late 2011. The Tampa Bay Times Forum box office is located at 401 Channelside Drive in Tampa, Florida. The arena was built for $139 million and has a maximum seating capacity of 21,500. Tampa Bay Times Forum tickets have included major events like the NHL Stanley Cup, All-Star Game, the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, and many WWE events. Almost all the hottest concerts stop in Tampa by coming through the forum like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Neil Diamond.

Twitters, Tweets and Keeks:
Gianluca tweets yeaterday “I think of you” with one of his special selfies! He tweeted “taking off” later tweeted “Landed in Tampa” and “Florida here we come”
Piero tweets “Bye #Saratoga Springs #Tampa here we are coming….ready for tomorrow night?”
Ignazio tweeted yesterday “Almost leaving Albany and going to Tampaaaaa, what you think is hot in there?? (love that accent!),
then “landed in Tampa”.
Ignazio also pointed out that there are only 6 concerts left in USA.

Check out video of “Night and Day” from Westbury, on Team Il Volo.

Well you know if they’re in Tampa tonight, they will be in Miami tomorrow night. LeeLee and I will be there with bells on, we’re very excited and can hardly wait!! More tomorrow.

Love and Luck tonight in Tampa Il Volo!!



Apparently LeeLee has refused to help at all.  So, Linda if you go home with Ignazio after Saturday’s concert REMEMBER:

1) You’ll have to learn to speak Italian and Spanish.  French and German wouldn’t hurt either.

2) When you’re 85 he’ll only be 32.

3) You can’t buy Bologna in Bolognia.  I don’t know that but, I liked writing it.

4) Your house plants will die.

5) Your mail will build up.  I know you hate that.

6) You’ll have to travel a lot to protect your investment.

7) Michele will not speak to you in elevators.

8) LeeLee will have to drive home alone.

9) Thousands of women will hate you.

10) Ok, thousands and one.  Sorry, can’t help it.

11) You’re older than his parents.

12) Your best friend will sob, uncontrollably, for months, maybe years, over losing him you.

13) Your children will have lots and lots of hair.  This may not prove to be a problem, however.

14) Marie deserves him more.

15) You’ll have to learn how to cook Chicken Marsala really, really well.

16) Loretta will cane you.

17) Mr. and Mrs. Boschetto will both have heart attacks.

18) You will have to be nice to Soonie.

19) Your plug-ins wont work.

20) Linda here’s your deal breaker – They play Soccer instead of football!

Now, you don’t really want to go, do you?





Hi Everyone,

By all accounts, pictures and videos; the concert, last night in Westbury was a resounding success and according to Gianluca, was a sell out!!

Twitter, Tweets and Keeks:
Gianluca tweeted, “Fans of all ages waiting for us outside the venue in Westbury. Love you all” He later tweeted “Westbury, thanks for #sold out”
Gianluca tweeted last night, “I’m a fool to want you”
Piero tweeted, “Leaving Westbury on way to Saratoga Springs, thank you so much for the third time” He later tweeted, “Saratoga Springs, Buonanotte”
Ignazio tweeted, “Ready for Westbury”, then “Amazing tonight, hard life, but worth it” He later tweeted, “you never know whats gonna happen to your life, so just live it” ( he’s so right!)

There are some amazing videos on Mundial, apparently the use of cameras was being allowed at this venue.
See videos of Ignazio singing “Memories,” Piero singing Love Story”and Il Volo singing “Il Mondo”, ” Surrender”, “o Solo Mio”,
“Smile”, and Gianluca singing “Night And Day”

“The Boys” are now in Saratoga Springs, New York. They must be getting a well deserved break in this beautiful upstate New York Town. Enjoy Guys!! (The photo above is of Saratoga).

Il Volo has two nights off then they open at The Tampa Bay Times Forum on September 20th, then Miami on the 21st (can’t wait!)

Enjoy your time off, Guys, rest your voices!!


Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
