We are in July and the summer concerts are approaching.
The guys are releasing videos and interviews for the various concerts and I have seen and read what they said about the concerts of Taormina and Marostica and I found them very interesting so I will translate them for you.
This video is dedicated to the Taormina concert.
P = Saturday, July 28 we are waiting for you in the splendid setting of the Ancient Theater of Taormina, for a special evening to which we hold a lot, that is fundraising to support the AIRC (Italian Cancer Research Association) Sicilia committee, for research on pediatric tumors.
I= We all want to no longer have to talk about cancer, especially when we talk about the little ones.
This is why we need to support researchers who are looking for the most effective treatments to treat 100% of children.
G = All together we can help AIRC reach this milestone as soon as possible.
We are waiting for you in Taormina on Saturday 28th July, tickets are already available on Ticketone.
We give AIRC researchers an overpopulated Ancient Theater and we all say together:
P.I.G. = Against cancer, I am here!
This article, speaks of an interview made to the boys on the concert of Marostica, published by IL GIORNALE DI VICENZA.
On the wave of success that accompanies them for years without interruption, “Il Volo in concerto” will be one of the key events of the “Marostica Summer Festival” in Piazza degli Scacchi in Marostica on the evening of July 19th. The appointment with the three young ambassadors of Italian music is at 21.30 for an evening nominated to remain well impressed in the memory of the public.
Your success is international, but you will also be touring a small town like Marostica.
What is the value of small centers for you?“We were born and lived in small towns where we can truly appreciate the right human dimension, where everyone knows each other and, like in a big family, there can be friendship, solidarity and all those values that have allowed us to face the world together. without fear. So it’s essential for us to return to the atmosphere of the city”.
One of your historical performances was the “Tribute ai Tre tenori”, Pavarotti, Carreas and Domingo. Are you going to be their heirs?“It would never be possible to compare ourselves with the three, unique and true tenors who transformed the lyric into a language for the general public. Ours was a simple tribute. A reminder of our historical moment with our voices.”
Your success is indisputable. Why are the Italian song and voices so loved?“Perhaps because the history of Italian music is fascinating in itself. Or because the music speaks Italian and among the great voices, the most famous are born in Italy.”
And to those who criticize your “lyric-pop” what do you answer?“That everyone has the right to love the music that is most congenial to them. Clearly, not everyone can appreciate such a particular genre. We ourselves when out of the scene listen, love and sing all different music. We only have twenty years. Criticizing is a right. But denigrate not so much. If, then, there are those who do it, we can not but shrug. In Marostica it will be a unique, magical concert.”
In ten years, where do you see yourself?“For the moment we have already arrived, at ten years of career. We hope to go the same way and always have this great audience because everything happens thanks to the people who love you and support you.”
What to say, the video message is admirable, these guys really have a heart of gold.
And the interview in the newspaper? They said that Marostica will be a special concert, I cannot wait!
Every day, there is a special announcement that makes us happy.
After the news of the participation in the
WIND MUSIC AWARD on June 5th and RADIO ITALIA LIVE – THE CONCERT on June 16th
we hear of another very important date:
The trio, IL VOLO arrives at the Marostica Summer Festival.
Marostica – The billboard of the fourth edition of Marostica Summer Festival is still enriched. After the announcement of the presence of Alvaro Soler, on the stage on 18 July, the next day, Thursday 19, in the chess square, IL VOLO will return. Ignazio Boschetto, Piero Barone and Gianluca Ginoble, will in fact present their project, on tour since 2016, which is titled“NOTTE MAGICA – A Tribute to the Three Tenors”. After the two lucky events of 2014 and 2015, sold out in every place order, the three tenors, who in these years have won successes in all corners of the world, with their typically Italian voices and a repertoire ranging from Opera to pop music, thanks to Due Punti Eventi they announce a new concert, in the Scaliger town, which has always responded with generosity and affection.
The one scheduled for July 19th, beginning at 9:30 pm, will be a show in which the successful melodies of the Neapolitan, Italian and international repertoire will alternate with pieces taken from great musicals and with the most famous opera arias.
On the stage with the orchestra, the trio will also present some pop-inspired pieces and other surprises.
Pre-sales of the “IL VOLO” concert will be available shortly online and in the Ticketone and Vivaticket circuits.
On 1 July 2016 in Piazza Santa Croce in Florence Il Volo brought on stage for the first time “NOTTE MAGICA – A Tribute to the Three Tenors”, broadcast in prime time on Canale 5; the show has seen the participation of Placido Domingo and marked the beginning of a world tour that debuted on March 4 at the Radio City Music Hall in New York, registering sold out. After 15 stages in the United States, the tour arrived first in Europe (29 dates) and then in Latin America and, finally, in Japan.
Marostica Summer Festival is organized by Due Punti Eventi, with the artistic direction of Valerio Simonato, in collaboration with the Municipality of Marostica and with the patronage of the Veneto Region and the Province of Vicenza. The event supports Woman For Freedom, donating a number of tickets to the shows to support the association’s activities.
Ok, I think it’s great news, a whole concert, I think I’ll do everything to go there.
There will be Magic Night songs, but also pop songs and some surprises (maybe the new single), moreover, from Roncadelle where I live in Marostica, it’s only 100 miles, and then I’ve never seen Marostica and the famous Piazza where every year plays the Chess Game with real people.
No, I can not miss, Marostica, wait for me!
How many of you would like to be here, at that time ??
Meanwhile, as we wait on 19 July, we enjoy this piece of concert taken at Marostica in 2014, beautiful CARUSO.
THIS NEWS JUST IN!

Ignazio Fights Cancer
We all know and love that Ignazio,Piero, and Gianluca love to take opportunities to help others and give back, and on Friday, Ignazio took another one, participating in a charity soccer match to promote cancer research.
(Following translation sent to me by LiJoy from Google):
“Friday, November 14th, there was the 1st memorial “Scirea-Facchetti” Municipal Stadium “Lombardo Angotta” Marsala. The meeting was organized by the Club Juventus and Inter Club of Marsala. Took to the field: Toto Schillaci, the bombar of magical nights of Italy 90; Nicholas Sciacca, flag of Foggia Zeman; Bush coach Roberto Trapani, Ignazio Boschetto of the trio “Il Volo”, Nino Barraco, Valerio Leto, Aldo Fina, James Costigliola, Matthew Gerardi, Michael Impiccichè, and many other Sports Club Marsala in 1912. Speakers Live Phone: Fabio Grosso and Mariella Scirea; both very pleased with the initiative carried out by the club this evening that had the common denominator of charity. In fact, the entire proceeds from the event were donated to AIRC (Italian Association for Cancer Research). Vincent Ferrante Bannera”
LiJoy tells me that not only did Ignazio’s team win the match, Ignazio himself delivered the winning goal! Congratulations, Ignazio, and way to support such a worthy cause!
Never Published Video
Needs no introduction or explanation. From Marostica, thanks to Francesco Boschetto Facebook & LiJoy, enjoy!
I think we all loved the concerts we were able to attend this year, and to get us through the lean time of Il Volo’s off season and while we’re waiting patiently (or something less polite… 😉 ) for new music to be released, I am trying to recreate the North American tour.
Now, I know that sometimes the set list differed from one city to the next, and some of the cute stuff in between might have been different from night to night as well. Could you help me with this?
If you have a set list from the concert in your city that I could use for research or a cute video of banter/antics between The Guys at your show that you would like included in an upcoming post, please send it to us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
