Hi all my Flight Crew Friends,
I wanted to share with everyone my Il Volo tattoo story!
It was a running joke in my family for about 2yrs that I was going to get a tattoo in my husband’s memory!! Ignazio shared his tattoo pics in the Spring! Then before Mother’s Day my oldest son gave me a check & told me to something fun with it! This is a sign I thought! I will get a tattoo for my husband on the left upper arm & Il Volo on the right arm! Made an appointment & had both done the day after Mother’s Day keeping it a secret from my 6 kids!
I needed the tattoos to be healed by the concert date at the Greek Theater on 6/7/14! I did reveal the tattoos to my family before the concert. All were excited & happy for me! My IlVolover English friend, Marlene & I attended the concert with my oldest son, Joe & his wife Cindy. We got to meet Jeannette, her daughter, & Myron before the concert. Also met up with Carol, who we met at the Santa Monica Xmas CD signing on 11/23/13! That was such fun but another story.
Our guys remembered us from the Gibson concert on my 85th birthday 8/28/13. They sang Happy Birthday to me then.
The Greek concert was just wonderful! The M&G after, a cattle call. I do take my wheelchair to concerts as am never sure how much walking there will be. We finally got into the M&G room & up to see the guys. I was going to stand up out of the wc but both Gian & Piero said to stay seated.
I get brain fade in their presence so just answered yes to their questions.
Was the tattoo real? You did this for us? Can we touch it? They were very concerned that I gone thru the procedure for them. Gian asked if he could take a photo. Then I got hugs & kisses on my hair, Piero kissed my right cheek! The photo was taken & we were gone! They tried to move us all thru the line quickly!! Beautiful memories of that nite!
I told Ignazio in his BD card that I had done that & could not wait to show them! Looks as tho it will be a while until we meet again!
I can not wait to get the new album! It will not be released till 2015.
Wish you all Il Volo love,
