And after 11 years from the first promotion, Il Volo returns to Australia, but this time for three concerts.
The Australian audience has been waiting for many years to be able to attend concerts there in Australia, and now, after a long wait, is satisfied, because there are three concerts : one in Melbourne, one in Adelaide and one in Sydney.
But as usual, let’s go in order.
First of all, let’s take a dip in the past, when 11 years ago Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca, really children, came to Australia.
Here they are guests at the Morning Show.
How sweet to see these old videos, and to reconfirm how much skill there was already in Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca.
And here is a promotional video made by John St. Peters, an Australian singer and presenter who recommends not to miss the Il Volo concert in Australia.
So, after having done the beautiful concert in Los Angeles on October 15, the boys immediately left for Australia, a long plane ride awaited them, 15 hours of travel plus the long check in and arrival and a difference of 18 hours more time than in Los Angeles, and a concert to do in Melbourne on the 18th, really amazing how they could do all this, but they did !!!
October 18: MELBOURNE
Let’s say right away that the lineup of songs has changed, many songs have been removed and others from their repertoire have been added.
The audience greets them with a great roar, here they are!
A beautiful collage
CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE
TORNA A SURRIENTO with irresistible Ignazio
After the concert, IL Volo released this thank you video.
Our First Tour in Australia 🇦🇺 and we started last night in Melbourne with a sold out show. Amazing audience!👏
Next Stops – Adelaide – Sydney
October 20, ADELAIDE
HALLELUJAH (final) and LA DONNA È MOBILE
MY WAY you will laugh with Piero, and HALLELUJAH
At the end of the song after the applause, a fan calls Gianluca, from the seats above, and Gianluca answers, everyone laughs.
The fan says in Italian that she has been following them since they were little. Gianluca thanks everyone because they have been following them for so long, thanks for the support and love even from so far away and says they will try to come to Australia more often, people respond with a roar of agreement.
(the rest of the speech is in English)
In Adelaide, Il Volo was also greeted by Radio Italia 1, an Italian broadcaster that broadcasts from Adelaide.
Wonderful to have Il Volo in Adelaide.
Congratulations to Frank Scali for bringing them to Australia. And to Radio Italia Uno
President Dino Musolino for helping bring this extraordinary trio to Adelaide.
We do not miss out this time.
In Adelaide there is also RADIO ITALIANA 531, which followed and broadcast part of the concert on the radio.
In the afternoon Il Volo was interviewed by Radio Italiana 531, a nice and friendly interview, a chat between friends talking about football, cooking, about the beginnings of Il Volo. Radio Italiana 531 also asked Piero Ignazio and Gianluca if they are aware of how much love there is for them in Australia!
But here are the words of Radio Italiana 531:
“Stefano and Marco, interviewed the band Il Volo on the day of their concert in Adelaide at Thebarton Theater, on the occasion of their World Tour.
Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca opened up and made themselves known better, between official promotional moments and fun and authentic moments.
We had a great time with Il Volo. 💗”
Here is a nice video taken during the interview.
And then in Adelaide, there are things that happen and are good for the heart, things like these that Marisa Borrillo tells us:
“Sometimes you have to believe that anything is possible! 🙏 We are so happy to have received backstage access for the opportunity to make Carlo’s longtime dream a reality!
Our sincere gratitude goes to “Loretta” who made it possible!
Thank you LORI 💗 and the guys 💗 for taking a moment of their time to make Carlo happy 🙏💘
🎼 IL VOLO … 🎼..you’re VERY GOOD …. you are AMAZING !!! 👏 ❤
Before the Sydney concert, Il Volo was intervened in the TV program: TODAY EXTRA, here is the interview.
And it is already time for the last concert on Australian soil.
October 24: SYDNEY
The Australian tour ends this evening.
This concert also had to reserve some surprises, and so it was.
The very warm audience laughed a lot this evening.
ECSTASY OF GOLD
WOULD HE EVEN KNOW ME NOW
QUANDO L’AMORE DIVENTA POESIA
LIBIAM DE LIETI CALICI
Ignazio unleashed, in this last concert, as you can see from these small videos.
This is the reason for Ignazio’s laughter, he read the sign held by this woman!
And here is the surprise of the evening, SMILE will sing in four, with the participation of the good singer NAOMI PRICE.
And here are the words of Naomi Price:
“What an honour to sing with Il Volo as they closed their first ever Australia tour last night. Three elite voices at the top of their game, but more importantly kind and generous men who welcomed me with open arms.
Thank you Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca ✨”
Like all good things, everything has a beginning and an end.
Gianluca thanks with these beautiful words:
“@ gianginoble11 Canada, the United States and Australia.
Thanks for your love. We had a great time together. Soon!
After so many successes, it’s time to go home.
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca will soon return to Italy, a week of rest, but then, immediately to work, there are good projects to prepare, and many surprises for the fans and even three concerts in Italy, before the end of the year.
Get all ready, because these guys will surprise us a lot !!
