RADIO ITALIA LIVE, THE CONCERT by Daniela

A beautiful flight of IL VOLO and we arrive in Palermo, there is the great concert of RADIO ITALIA LIVE.

Here, instead, there is the advertising of the concert, really very nice and the boys are very strong.

 

P = You must come to the Radio Italia live concert, because …
I = Why Radio Italia, it’s just Italian music … and then it’s not an advice …
G = And what is a fennel? However, to get all the information, swipe up. 

Here is the video of the show’s rehearsals.

They try “MUSICA CHE RESTA”, but is someone missing? Ignazio did not arrive, but he will certainly be there for the evening.

Immediately after the rehearsals for the show, Piero and Gianluca are interviewed by Radio Italia.

Radio 01

IL VOLO TO RADIO ITALIA LIVE. 10 YEARS OF CAREER: “AT THE END OF THE YEAR THE BEST WILL COME.”

Gianluca and Piero anticipate a new project.

Radio 02

Among the protagonists of RADIO ITALIA LIVE – IL CONCERTO in Palermo is IL VOLO: Gianluca Ginoble and Piero Barone did the rehearsals and went to visit us at our Foro Italico for a live interview with Mauro and Manola. Ignazio Boschetto is absent, but tomorrow (29 June) he will be on stage. “Sometimes it happens that due to unforeseen events we are not immediately present all three. Once, in 2012, we were guests at The Voice Portugal, but there was a snowfall and I couldn’t move from home,” explained Gianluca.

Radio 03

Celebrate 10 years of success around the world … “For us this is a special year, we were waiting with much anticipation 2019. The first song we sang together in 2009 was ‘O Sole Mio’. This year we celebrate 10 years of music, friendship and loyalty. A project will arrive at the end of the year, the best.”

Radio 04

Did you ever think or hope as a child that this would happen? “The important thing is never to lose being children, which sometimes helps you to keep your feet on the ground. We still have that desire to make music and have fun, especially on stage, where we are still those children who want to break everything.”

Radio 05

Did you ever think about the Japan tour and the Arena? “No, we just sang, just. We didn’t know each other, it was the producer of the program TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE  that has united us. Thanks to our manager Torpedine we are fulfilling our dreams.”

You were small but you already showed great self-confidence “This is a little fun … Have you ever seen videos in Locarno where we forgot the lyrics?”

Radio 06

We are finally in the evening, everything takes place in the beautiful Sicily, in Palermo, we are at the Foro Italico, at the marina. There’s a lot of people.
And here’s the short videos of their performances …

A CHI MI DICE

MUSICA CHE RESTA 

GRANDE AMORE

Great people participation!

 

Immediately after the performance, a small, nice interview.

PR = At Radio Italia Live the concert, IL VOLO, welcome.
G = Thank you, welcome back.

PR = Welcome back, very good, but it is also a welcome home, especially for Piero and Ignazio, because they return to Sicily. What is it like singing at home in Sicily?
I = It is always beautiful, it is always nice to come back to Sicily, our land, our origins, especially to Radio Italia, the people are crazy, in today’s slang “fighissimo”. Then we will be back on July 21st here in Palermo.
P = And also in Taormina on July 23rd.

PR = What did you give Piero for his 26 years?
I = Do you really want to know?
P = You know, they went to the greengrocer, they bought a broccoli and they gave it to me, in Sicily they say “broccoli roses”. (I think it’s a way of saying that they gave him nothing, Daniela)
G = Sometimes we give ourselves little thoughts and gifts, even if there is no particular occasion.

PR = It is the best thing.
(addressed to Piero) but is this really the gift?
P = No, no, they are thinking about it ….. I hope !!
G = First we must have the money.
P = Yes, those of Mahmood.

Radio 18

PR = This year you celebrate 10 years of career, the best moments of these 10 years, maybe one each.
P = When they met me.
I = You know it’s hard to get one, maybe when we won Sanremo.
G = Perhaps our first concert at Radio City Music Hall.
P = I must say, the performance before Pope Francis in Panama for WYD.

PR = Three beautiful moments. You are international artists, we know you well, you are on tour all over the world, who better than you, knows the world.
Three countries, those of your tour are also fine- which would you recommend for the summer 2019.
G = To go on vacation? For summer? I, summer or not, would go to Japan immediately, it’s one of my favorite countries.
I = We Italians, usually, for the holiday, we always try to go abroad, in Greece or the Maldives, but I think that in Italy, there are really beautiful places, starting from Puglia, the coast of Salento, even the Calabria, Sardinia, Sicily.
G = Sicily is implied.
I = Sicily, rightly, is implied.
P = I advise you to go to Google and look for Scala dei Turchi, Agrigento, my house!

Radio 19

 

PR = Gianluca said Japan. You have great success there too, you have just done the concerts, but do you know how to sing something in Japanese?
(Piero and Ignazio begin to sing a nursery rhyme in Japanese)
G = For two weeks they did so all the time, it’s a nursery rhyme, it would be like ours “If you are happy you know it, clap your hands”. The beauty is that we sang it even in concert, suddenly …
P = After the Nessun Dorma
G = …. and the people … (he claps his hands, very composed, like the Japanese do), beautiful.

PR = Since I see you a lot, the very last thing … I saw that for the advertising of the concert of Radio Italia, Ignazio made the dab (???)
P = What is this dab? (Ignazio and Gianluca do, a pose)
PR = I wanted Il Volo to greet Radio Italia with your dab.
P = Do you know which would be our dab? (He moves his arms as if he were flying.)
PR = You are right there is the personalized one for Il VOLO.
IL VOLO, thanks !!!

SEAT MUSIC AWARDS by Daniela

And the time has come, for the Italian MUSIC AWARDS.

They will be held, as is well known, in Verona, in the beautiful Arena.

SEAT 01

During this show, the singers who have had more CD sales or more people at the live concerts, the previous year, are rewarded.

There will be no prizes for IL VOLO, because as you all know, the year 2018 didn’t have new CDs and there were few live concerts.

But our guys were invited as guests, and to promote their work.

Here they are during the rehearsals.

SEAT 02

SEAT 03

SEAT 05

And here in a funny video, where they say “THANK YOU” in many different languages. 😂

Even Torpedine has fun during the rehearsals .

Piero says: “Tonight we have an exceptional drummer, Torpedine. Torp”.

 

Here on their arrival, with some fans.

 

SEAT 06

SEAT 07

SEAT 08

They also gave interviews, here is one for which you can use the translator function. Activate it.

This is another interview with Radio Italia (one of the few radios that always broadcast IL VOLO songs).

Man = From the Arena of Verona, ladies and gentlemen: IL VOLO.

Gian = Good pronunciation.

Woman = with a slightly American accent.

Man = They are international artists, guys, come on.

Ignazio = In my country say “U VOLO, more international than that.”

Man = How nice to meet you guys, how are you?

Ignazio = Well, happy to be back at the Arena, we will be back again in September on the 24th.

Man = Will be the final of a tour that?

Piero = Yes, from July we will sing, from north to south, in all the cities of Italy.

Man = Also, you just did a tour in Japan, where you were.

Piero = Yes, a month of concerts in Japan.

Woman = Furthermore, you are young, but you already have 10 years of career behind you.

Ignazio = In fact, look, to Piero, white hair has already grown. It has been 10 intense years, Piero always says that they have gone on the fly.
They have passed quickly, intense, we have traveled a lot, but above all, it is a concentration of emotions, because getting to different cultures has always been our goal, and succeeding, after 10 years also in Japan, is something that makes us very proud, and repays us for all the sacrifices.

Piero = In Japan, we were lucky, because they praise a discipline that is ice skating. Their champion, won the gold medal at the Olympic Games on the ice last year, with our song. So, we’re second in the standings.

Man = Boys, it must be beautiful.

Woman = That is, he introduced you to Japan.

Piero = Do you know who is first in the standings?

Man = Who is first in the standings?

Ignazio = Bohemian Rapsody

Woman = But, what an honor, second only behind Bohemian Rapsody.

SEAT 09

We thank Radio Italia, and for the interview and always spread the beautiful music of the boys.

The day was long and hot for the boys, but now we have arrived at the time of the show ………. here they are !!!!!

What can I say?

This is the video of the only song the boys sang, but before and after them, there were many singers and …… trust my judgment, the guys of IL VOLO are spectacular, their voices are unique. “I’ve heard so many singers who have sung so many false notes.”

Always in excellent shape, an amalgamation of perfect voices, and the high notes of Ignazio ………. excellent !!

Their live performances, however, never disappoint.

This was published on the Facebook page of RAI 1, it says:
THE TRIO THAT ENCHANTS THE ARENA

IL VOLO / RADIOITALIA by Daniela

And here we are also at the concert of RADIO ITALIA, the great concert was held in Milan in Piazza del Duomo.

RI Milano Piazza del DuomoRI Milano Duomo

The boys arrived in the afternoon for rehearsals.

And here’s the short video of the rehearsals, they will sing L’AMORE SI MUOVE and GRANDE AMORE !!

 

Mamma mia, how beautiful they are !!!

I would have liked to have been there, but I think I saw them much better from my television than in that screaming crowd !!

But it’s a show !!

So the boys were interviewed.

Usual questions, nothing new.

And finally here we are in the evening.

The Piazza is very full, the wait is spasmodic.

Seventeen singers have already performed, now it’s their turn, the fantastic PIERO, IGNAZIO and GIANLUCA, in two words IL VOLO.

 

RI Milano 12RI Milano 13RI Milano 14RI Milano 15RI Milano 16RI Milano 17RI Milano 18RI Milano 19

Immediately after the performance the boys were interviewed by Gordon backstage.

After the pleasantries, Gordon says that it is the first time that IL VOLO has taken part in a Radio Italia concert (in reality, although it is only an Italian radio, it never transmits the songs of IL VOLO and NEVER invited them to their concerts, Daniela).

The boys confirm that they are happy to be there and they say the audience was singing well.

Gordon warns them that in the afternoon, during the rehearsals, there was a live on Facebook, IL VOLO had the peak of views on Facebook.

The boys are very happy and hope to have had positive comments, and Gordon says they have ONLY had positive comments.

After an exchange of jokes and laughter, Gordon asks what they feel, to bring Italy to a high level, because they are our flag-holders.

Ignazio says that it is not easy, because sometimes there are many prejudices, he says that they do not make a strictly classical genre, but this is what reflects them, that represents them and that is really appreciated by the public all over the world.

Piero says that they must thank the Italians anyway, because even if they are almost 10 years into their career, in Italy they only started to be followed for the last 5 years.

They end up laughing and joking.

RI Milano 20

But the thing that I personally liked the most was a comment on Paoletta’s Twitter.

Paoletta is a radio speaker, long ago, while on the radio they were broadcasting the song by Nek, she commented that Nek was the moral winner of Sanremo 2015. I was very sad and angry.

Here is his tweet from last night:

#Twitter @Paoletta_F Grande impatto, Piazza Duomo abbraccia @ilvolo. Per me è LA prima volta che li sento live e ho voglia di un concerto! @GianGinoble @IBoschetto @piero_barone #RILIVE @RadioItalia 🔊🗣#IlVolo #IlVoloSicilia grazie per la condivisione

I translate:

Great impact, Piazza Duomo embraces IL VOLO.
For me it’s the first time I hear them live, and I want a concert.

And also this comment on twitter of MUSICA TV OFFICIAL:

#Twitter @MusicaTvOfficial
Unico grande amore: e piazza Duomo tira fuori la voce! @ilvolo @GianGinoble @IBoschetto @piero_barone #RILIVE @RadioItalia 🇮🇹❤

I translate:

Unique GRANDE AMORE and Piazza Duomo brings out the voice: IL VOLO.

And finally an article that speaks well of our boys and their performance:

RadioItalia Article – click here

In Piazza Duomo also “L’AMORE SI MUOVE”: only applause for Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca.

It’s time for another first time to RADIO ITALIA LIVE – THE CONCERT: on stage in Piazza Duomo, in Milan, IL VOLO debuts.

The power of the voices of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca resounds throughout the square: “L’AMORE SI MUOVE” in the audience, right in front of the Milan Cathedral. The trio takes in the applause of the crowd, full of amazement for the three prodigy boys.

“It’s time to sing together”: so IL VOLO anticipates their encore in “GRANDE AMORE”. One by one, the three singers walk the entire catwalk and approach the audience: first Gianluca, then Ignazio and finally Piero. “You are my only big love” is the statement that the trio launches with force and enthusiasm to all the spectators, who return with a full voice singing the piece that, in 2015, had triumphed at the Sanremo Festival.

The phenomenal voices of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca come together in a shivering finale. Then, the trio intones the refrain again to hear one last time the impressive choir of Piazza Duomo. “Hurray, the music!” Is the cry that closes the show.

RI Milano 21

What to say, it was simply fantastic, the guys were amazing and people reacted by singing.

The people present, not all fans of the IL VOLO, could hear and appreciate the magnificent voices of the boys.

I feel very proud.

Tell me your thoughts.

IL VOLO and PINO E’ by Daniela

Our boys give us many participations in important events. Tonight is the turn of the tribute concert to Pino Daniele.

We are in Naples, at the San Paolo stadium and the event is called PINO E’.

Pino 01Pino 02

The boys have just arrived, Gianluca says, “We just arrived here at the historic Stadio San Paolo, we are ready for rehearsals, good morning everyone, bye.”

PIno 03

In the afternoon, the boys are interviewed by RAI RADIO2.

Pino 04Pino 05

Piero says it is a great responsibility to remember a great artist. “The emotions are different, from one of our concerts, but we are really honored, as Ignazio said, we will work hard and we will definitely be excited.”

(The boys are asked how they chose the song they will sing, Piero answers.)

“Ignazio chose the song, because he knows all the discography of Pino Daniele, we still can not say what it is, because it will be a surprise.”

Pino 06

Then they are interviewed by Radio Italia. 

Here is a summary of their interview:

“We are very happy to be here. Pino has made the history of Italian music and blues. We apologize in advance for the Neapolitan pronunciation.”

Ignazio Boschetto is a big fan of Pino and he has paid tribute several times during the concerts of Il Volo: “He is my idol, he accompanies my days. Another Pino Daniele will not be born anymore.”

What are the songs of Pino that Il Volo likes best? “‘CAMMINA CAMMINA’ that tells a heartbreaking love story. But also the energy of ‘A me me piace’ or ‘blues’ or ‘Resta cu’ mmè.”

“Pino E’ will be a special concert also because the proceeds will go to Pino Daniele Trust Onlus, OPEN ONLUS and Save The Children. Specifically, the projects are these:

The “Passport” European project of OPEN ONLUS – an electronic passport, in multiple languages, that will allow every teenager with cancer to be assisted in Europe and to share his clinical history for research on pediatric cancer.

– The “Lights Points” project of SAVE THE CHILDREN, to combat educational poverty in minors. A physical space open to children, adolescents and their parents, coordinated by educational figures and animated by volunteers, which arises in the difficult neighborhoods of some Italian cities without services and opportunities.

In this short video, Ignazio says that Pino has represented the story, both of Neapolitan music, but of a genre that belonged only to him, he represented the beautiful part of the Italian-Neapolitan blues.

“Personally, he has been my idol, I have been listening to him for years and he accompanies me in all my days, in my daily life.”

And here they are at the trials, it is impossible to know what they will sing.

The sound is muted to not allow you to understand the song that they will sing.

Interviewed by Radio Montecarlo.

And here we are finally at the exhibition.

UPDATE: Here is a newly published video from the concert.

“Pino is in the past and in the present and will remain in the future, because he is the greatest of all.”

And here they are for the duet song with Mario Biondi.

The show is over, the guys were good. The genre of Neapolitan music is not easy to interpret.

See you next guys !!
