Il Volo – Groundhog’s Day??

Hello folks, i just thought I’d share my evening with you tonight….

Chris and I dutifully volunteered tonight for Il Volo night at PBS.

Nine-thirty came and we anxiously awaited the start of our guys.  I was finishing up a pledge, so did not realize the Nessun Dorma they were playing was at the END of the concert, until the credits started to roll!

What was happening??  We did not have a clue!

So, they tried to fix it, but it was like on continuous repeat of the last few songs.

I clapped briefly to libiamo and enjoyed it again, and again,  and again… I think like 6 times, at least?

We eventually went just totally live, and they were just talking.  They must have been doing something right, people were still calling and ordering our guys!

It was also freezing cold in here tonight!

I even told the one person how to say Ignazio’s name and she repeated it well, however, she was a smart girl and said she would not attempt it on air.  Unfortunately,  not so for the other speaker, Fred.  😦

Anyhow,  an interesting night it is.

Writing to you, LIVE, from Wixom, Michigan, Detroit PBS!
