It’s been a busy couple of days for Il Volo. A concert in Albany, appearing remotely from Barclays Center on Porta a Porta to celebrate the show’s 20th year, and then performing for the audience last night. Enjoy! There is more video content at my Facbook Page here.
Roccaraso is over and The Guys are as busy as ever, attending the Armani show during Fashion Week and having the Porta a Porta special airing tonight (stayed tuned for anything I can find about those events).
My article today is a little disjointed. I’m sorry; I lost track of which videos I posted in which order. Enjoy them all!
From Beverly from <3 Il Volo <3 Pittsburgh Fan Club:
“This video is from the start of the concert in Roccaraso on June 18. Our guys announced that the concert was being dedicated to little Iaia (Yaya), who has been undergoing treatment for Nueroblastoma (a cancer which generally originates in the adrenal glands). She desperately needed treatment in the US. After the people of Abruzzo (the region in which Iaia’s family lives) began the campaign “Un Sogno Di Iaia” (Iaia’s Dream), with the help of Il Volo (more so Gianluca, himself being from Abruzzo), she and her family were able to travel to Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NY and she received the treatment she needed. The ever-compassionate and tender-hearted Gianluca is visibly quite emotional, and his sweet brother Ignazio comforts him. Bless his heart’!”
Roccaraso is a town and commune of the province of L’Aquila in the Abruzzo region of central Italy, and boasts some of the best downhill and cross country ski runs around. It is beautiful, but the thought of winter gives me chest pain. 😉
The celebration of Il Volo’s victory in San Remo continued this week when The Guys appeared on Porta a Porta with Bruno Vespa again.
Porta a Porta seems to be a great show for them. Bruno obviously cares for them a lot vise versa; they always seems to have good energy and audience appreciation–in my opinion–and did I mention they always sound amazing? *school girl sigh*
Before coming to the US, The Guys were in Rome taping an appearance on Porta a Porta with Bruno Vespa. Frankly, I think everything came up so quickly, that there isn’t a lot written about this appearance, but we do have videos and pictures available for viewing.
