Il Volo Professional ~~ Notte Magica 2017 – Minneapolis, MN


I had a chance to interview some of our Flight Crew ladies about their experience with the Minneapolis concert and here’s what they had to say.  I asked them all the same question.

Leelee:  So how was it?

Jane:  “A Magical Night it was!  Their heavenly voices, impeccable timing, dashing good looks, pure joy in singing to us…add it all up and it creates a night to never forget.  The elegant State Theater was the perfect setting for this type of concert.  Stunning beauty of the venue coupled with such amazing talent transported us to another level of being.  They pulled out all of the stops for this tour and it shows.  Grazie Il Volo!”


Joyce:  “They sound so wonderful live, so much better than the cd and dvd. Now I want to hear them live all the time, preferably in my living room. Can we go to Vegas this weekend?”


Allene:  “The concert in Minneapolis was all I had expected and a whole lot more.  Our guys looked magnificent and were in excellent voice.  The Midwest audience was a little more laid back than earlier audiences and did not do as many standing ovations that I thought they deserved.  And the M&G was the usual rush, rush which always turns me into an idiot, but I loved every minute of it, and can’t wait for the NEXT time.”


Audrey:  “This was my favorite, not only because I had a great seat. Maybe 12 feet directly in front of Piero. I barely even heard the music because I was in constant awe. The hard work Gian has done for his solo brought tears and smiles. He even commented how difficult a song it is. And unbelievable that the high notes Piero hits for so long ! How is that even possible! I’m so glad that they were all so funny, helping to make it a wonderful night. But the best was the M&G. Four kisses from Gian and 2 from the others. Still haven’t come down to earth.”


Linda:  “3/20/17 Il Volo Notte Magica was indeed a true night of magic for us. My husband and I, and a friend attended the concert.   It was all very exciting. I had some really good front row seats and meet and greet afterwards.   As you say,  you forget what to say,  as I did,  but I had practiced a short sentence in Italian, that I had heard them say to the audience on the Pompeii concert. So I said to them grazia Italia, grand amore tutti voi and they nodded so it maybe sounded ok.  The night in Minneapolis was unusual warm for March.    While waiting for the State Theatre doors to open, a man collapsed and the perimedics had to be called.  Sad, there was only about 30 more minutes until the concert began.   Back at the hotel we popped open a bottle of Italian austi spumonti and enjoyed our last glow from the concert.  It was a wonderful concert with the ‘boys’.”

Okay, so maybe I didn’t personally interview them, but they were kind enough to send me their experiences, and fantastic experiences they are!  Anyone of us who have seen them so far can relate to each and every one!
Thank you, @beat_it_queen, for taking some beautiful photos of Il Volo. I hope you don’t mind.   Just wallow in the magic!
