IL VOLO CONCERTS UNTIL MID-JULY by Daniela

The first half of July saw our favorites engaged in four concerts in Central-Eastern Europe.
Unfortunately, the concert on July 7 in Zaprešić in Croatia had to be postponed due to bad weather. These are things to put in the possibilities in outdoor concerts. In this case the concert was postponed to July 22nd. We cross our fingers hoping that the weather will be better on July 22nd.

On July 9, Il Volo had a concert in Poland, exactly in Łódź.
Poland welcomed the concert with great love, it was a great success. The event was organized by Prestige, who has a lot of respect and also friendship with our boys.
From the very first moment, Prestige MJM posted photos and comments like these:

The fourth concert of Il Volo in Poland is upon us! Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have already arrived at the Atlas Arena. They are good friends of ours, so the greeting was friendly.
Then, after the beautiful concert they posted wonderful photos commenting like this:
️ Fantastic atmosphere among the audience and the enthusiasm of Il Volo conquered the audience of ❤Łódź, Il Volo Atlas Arena.
️ Wonderful voices and thrilling interpretations of famous hits have kept the concert in the memory of all fans for a long time.

Then Prestige also published a beautiful summary video.

‘IL VOLO’ GAVE PLOVDIV THEIR LOVE
The fantastic Gianluca Ginoble, Ignazio Boschetto and Piero Barone appeared on the stage of the Ancient Theater of Plovdiv with the hit ‘The Ecstasy of Gold’ by the unforgettable Ennio Morricone from the film ‘The Good, the Bad, the Ugly’. Other magnificent melodies followed by the famous composer, musician and conductor – author of the music of unforgettable hits in the history of Italian and world cinema, including ‘E più ti penso’ from ‘Once upon a time in America’, from ‘Malena’, ‘Cinema Paradiso’  and others.
“Let’s sing love” – said the magnificent singers with cosmic voices and fascinated the audience of the Ancient Theater with a palette of favorite classical arias. Among these ‘La donna è mobile’ from the beloved opera ‘Rigoletto’ by Giuseppe Verdi, ‘Nessun Dorma’ from Giacomo Puccini’s ‘Turandot’, combined with the timeless songs ‘My way’ by Frank Sinatra, ‘Io che non vivo’ (without you), Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’.
The song ‘Delilah’ by Tom Jones and ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ by Elvis Presley caused a real excitement among the spectators of the Ancient Theater. And with the performance of the song ‘Volare’ Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero made the audience stand up and danced on the ancient seats. This was followed by the success of Lucio Dalla ‘Caruso’, which aroused the adrenaline of music lovers.
Little Vaya, embraced by Gianluca, approached the stage in the midst of the audience. He congratulated the beautiful girl and said that the performance ‘O Sole Mio’ was dedicated to her. The most loved song in the world, created more than 120 years ago by the composer Eduardo di Capua based on the text of the poet and Napoleon admirer Giovanni Capuro, was sung from the entire hall and filled the historic center.
This inspired the wonderful musicians of IL VOLO, and the three went to the public in three of the sectors of the Ancient Theater, where they greeted their fans. Among the guests were admirers from Italy, unfolding national flags, from Greece, Germany, China and others. To applaud their favorite artists, music lovers didn’t sit down until the concert was over and gave their favorite flowers, gifts, sweets, hugs and kisses. This was followed by the wonderful ‘Cheers’ from Verdi’s favorite opera ‘La Traviata’.
And for the finale, as an encore, the magnificent angelic vocalists performed the unique song ‘Grande Amore’.
The wonderful Italians took their leave with the promise that they would return to Plovdiv again. Kisses and hugs.
With the spectacular show, Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero started their tour in Bulgaria entitled ‘IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE.’

Listen to how pleasant this interview made in Bulgaria is.

And now here are the last two concerts in Sofia, on July 13 and 14, two wonderful concerts full of music and love.

Yes, you have seen well, at the end of the video Piero dances with Barbara !!

My goodness, how much joy, how much happiness, how much love Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca gave, but how much love they also received!
People were completely involved, and there were many gestures of affection and admiration.
The tour is proceeding in the best way, but there is no time to rest, next stop: Romania!

I would say that the boys are very satisfied.

Euro Tour 09

Euro Tour 10

These are gifts made by Polish fans.

I translate what the fans wrote:

“These are the gifts that the guys have appreciated the most! Ignazio was delighted with most of them, Gianluca of the ravioli, and Piero of the nightingales. Boys in general very happy and happy. They appreciated our efforts and thank you very much for the gifts and the action 🙂 Gianluca called us birds that always come back and their happy fantastic thank you 🙂 we are proud of you and thank you !!!! “

The gift to which the fans refer is a beautiful action that they organized during the song IL MONDO, everyone had to raise some colored papers that they found on their seats, at the end they composed the colors of the Italian flag.

Really good Polish fans and really cute three puppets.

Euro Tour 17

Euro Tour 18

Euro Tour 19

This picture was posted by Valentina during the concert, the dedication says: “Always with you, proud of you.” 

Euro Tour 20

In reality there was a small problem, but how was it dealt with? Always united, our good guys, “One for all, all for one”, I’m very proud of them, but now I’ll explain, better:

Everything happened during the execution of Ave Maria Mater Misericordiae, as you can clearly see from this video.

At the beginning of the video you notice that Piero touches the bow tie, as if it were annoyed, maybe it has a discomfort in the throat, then just before starting his verses, he turns to the director and mentions a cough … begins his verses, but at the end of the first, he turns and looks towards Ignazio who immediately understands and continues singing, Piero’s sentence, all this under Gianluca’s tense gaze.

And in fact, during today’s trials in Bratislava, Ignazio wrote this post.

Euro Tour 21

@ignazioboschetto
It is difficult to imagine how many difficulties there are behind a tour or concert.
The day is and the day is not.
But despite everything, always united!
@barone_piero @ gianginoble11  

Apart from this small problem of annoyance, perhaps passed unnoticed, I would say that the audience was fantastic, very warm and the guys were very happy, so let’s enjoy some videos of the songs.

 

 

Euro Tour 22

 

Euro Tour 23

Euro Tour 24

And run to Bratislava for the third concert.

Euro Tour 25

Il Volo – 11 december 2018 – Bratislava 

The vivacity of Ignazio is well known to all, impossible to hold it in the presence of instruments. Here it is during the rehearsals before the concert. Too strong!

 

Euro Tour 26

 

 

Euro Tour 27

 

 

Euro Tour 28

Euro Tour 29

What to say, it seems to me that these three concerts have gone very well, in particular I liked the harmony that exists between Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca and that once again has been reconfirmed.

Congratulations on this first part of the Eastern Europe tour!

Time to go home and then, get ready, fast, Lebanon is waiting for you.
