THE BEST OF 10 YEARS TOUR by Daniela

That’s right, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca: IL VOLO,  are leaving for the tour and their destination is AMERICA !!!!

Finally the long-awaited time has arrived, a few more days and they will perform in their first stop in Toronto and then there will be a continuous succession of concerts in different cities.

I think I interpret that the patience of the long wait has left you, and a frenzied agitation has taken over that leads to joy, to finally be able to see them live and to be able to have the emotion of a whole concert with them.

Best Of 01

Do you have your tickets ready ??

Please dear friends, to communicate your wishes, write me the date and the city of the concert where you will go and let me know the three absolutely favorite songs of all, which you would certainly like to listen to (they can also be solos). Pat will be able to make a list and ranking of favorite songs.

It will be interesting to find out what you would like to hear.

Best Of 02

Are you all ready to dance and sing with Il Volo?

Are you ready for a shot, a warm hug, a sweet kiss, or to make a tug of ears at these tender brats?

How about a hug like this from Piero ???? It would be magnificent!

The celebrations for the first 10 years of Il Volo’s career continue. The trio that bewitched the world, setting record sales and sell outs, from January 2020 will be engaged in a series of live events. It starts with the “North American Tour”. From 28 January to March the Il Volo boys will perform in the most important symbolic places of world music.

Touching sacred temples of art, such as the Radio City Music Hall in New York, (February 6th) Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca will delight the ears and hearts of a multigenerational audience that for a decade now has been following them with affection and admiration. In June and July it will be the turn of Germany and Poland with the addition of new stages to a calendar full of commitments. Summer will mark the return of the group to Italy, with two dates in Verona in August and two dates in September in Taormina.

November and December will sign a really important tour which today has 37 dates, without excluding any additions. Turin, then Milan, to end in the capital on December 4th. A riot of live events not to be missed. Everything is ready for the first stop, on January 28th, in Toronto, from the prestigious Meridian Hall, the guys from Il Volo will perform for the Canadian public. Fasten your seat belts, let’s go. The journey of Il Volo begins, the most important one, the Best of, proud banner of a journey that began 10 years ago and which still today tells credible stories of sacrifice, passion and gratification.

By the way, have you all heard of the beautiful IL VOLO FAN FAIRE DINNER that Jeannette Giglio is organizing for March 15th at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas??

It will be a beautiful event and there will be an opportunity for you fans to get to know each other personally and maybe even some surprises !!

Best Of 05

I have another request for you.

For those who go to a concert, please write your impressions, for better or for worse, even a few lines, which we will then publish and it will be interesting to read the differences between one concert and another.

Also tell us about the fans you met at the various concerts.

Best Of 06

What to say, they were fun, in their imitation of rapper singers, they sang famous song phrases, rap style ….. hilarious !!!

But the next day, in the morning, here they are guests at a radio program, RADIO2 SOCIAL CLUB.

Return 11

And here is their participation in the program.

After the greetings, the boys are asked the thrill of having their photos on Times Square, and Ignazio says that it was very exciting to see their photos there.

Return 12

The speaker, standing with glasses, is Luca Barbarossa, he is the author of the words of “IO CANTO”, which he had written for Pavarotti, but which was then sung by Placido Domingo with IL Volo, while the music is by Musumarra, which is the same author that wrote “Ave Maria Mater Misericordiae”.

Then the famous selfie with Pope Francis is remembered. Below, “Musica Che Resta” is played on the air.

On the way back, the boys sing “Arrivederci Roma” live.

The boys sang “Jingle Bell Rock” and then sang “Nel blu dipinto di blu” in Dean Martin version. Here is a video of snippets of the songs. There is no sound until about 12 seconds into the video.

In the end a good female singer, Frances and Il Volo, especially Ignazio, sang “Imagine”.

Return 13

So here they are guests in the broadcast of RAI1 “20 years that we are Italian”.

Return 14

In this beautiful broadcast, they presented a nice medley of their songs. And then, in the second part, Il Volo, along with Gigi D’Alessio sang a beautiful song by Modugno “Tu si na cosa grande”. Beautiful, all four very good.

Il Volo Professional ~ Notte Magica! Roccaraso~Turin~Bologna!

nottemagica header

The guys have been on the GO, but fear not we have NOT lost track of one minute of them as they serenade themselves from one part of Italy to another!

Starting with Roccaraso, Italy…a town in central Italy in the province of L’Aquila in the Abruzzo region…a mere 85 miles from Gianluca’s home town of Montepagano….next on to Turin which is way up north in the Piedmont area, then landing in the lovely town of Bologna where Michele and Barbara are from.  You can almost hear every note they are singing or feel every ounce of joy they are expressing when you look at these pictures.

~Roccaraso~

Roccaraso 1

Backdrop for rehearsal in progress.

And how adorable is that little wave from Gianluca?

Bologna1

And the Notte Magica lingers…until we see you again.

 

Piero and Gianluca  enjoy watching Ignazio sing his part.  They still do this after all the years of performing together.  How endearing is that?

One can never hear this magnificent song too many times.

Ave Maria Mater Misericordiae
