IL VOLO WORLD TOUR: CHICAGO and ATLANTA by Daniela

February 15: CHICAGO

And here we are in CHICAGO, the theater is sold out !!

But how much emotion must Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have, as they walk in this street in front of the theater where they will perform?

Chi 01

Chi 02

Once again, an incredible welcome for these young men.

Chi 03

Chi 04

 Impossible to get used to this affection by the audience.

Security increasingly forbids videos. 🙁

Fortunately, Deborah Georgini Beaupre was also at the concert, she made many beautiful photos, some short videos, but in particular she was present and her comments make us understand, what happened during the evening.
Thanks Deborah !! 😘

“This happens to the girl sitting right next to us during 🎶O sole mio🎶 Notice first Gianluca comes down and is singing to her, then after he goes back to the stage, Ignazio decides to sneak down to sing to her also!! Meanwhile…Piero needs to outdo both of them with his famous part of the song not far away from all this!! (Sorry the videos are very short.) The ragazzi were in rare form that night!! Gotta love them!!💖💖💖”

Mix of songs:

In the backstage of the concert, a young and nice Italian actor Salvatore Esposito was also present. I will translate what he says in this video:

S = Igna, so Chicago is yours (by Il Volo)
I = Wait, the concert has yet to begin.
S = All sold-out, all Chicago is talking about you, come here Piero, come …

February 17: ATLANTA

And here they are in ATLANTA, it seems that security was less demanding here, better for us, these videos are beautiful!!

Thanks Deborah Georgini Beaupre, what a wonderful theater!

Few and very short videos from “Volomusic”, it seems that security is uncompromising.
It doesn’t matter, they still give us the taste of the evening.

But how beautiful and elegant are the guys in this video with our dear Jana in the front row. You can see her at about one minute into the video.

In a vote from 1 to 10, I would say 10 with honors. ❤️

Jana, how lucky to be right in the front row, so close to them.

We await your other photos and your impressions.😉

Even in these two stages, everything is fine.

How many friends are enjoying these beautiful concerts and we are still only halfway there.

Another nice thing, are the meetings between fans, before and after the concerts …. there is a long thread that binds us, beyond linguistic differences, culture, distance …. it’s called IL VOLO.

IL VOLO WORLD TOUR: ATLANTIC CITY and WASHINGTON by Daniela

But where do Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca find their strength, to make concerts with such close dates?

Every time it seems impossible to us, yet as usual, they are succeeding in this endeavor.

But let’s go in order.

And here is Donna’s review.

Ok , so I met Janis and 2 other ladies, Maria and Karen, ar National Harbor. This is a Casino and Theater at Oxen Hill Maryland near D.C. we went to Soundcheck which was really nice. They rehearsed a bunch of songs, fooled around some as usual and then one by one came down and said hello to everyone . No hugging , because of all the germs floating around. Gianluca says DONNA! ciao! Because he knows me which always makes my stomach drop…lol. Next was dinner, not very good for such a well known place. Time for the show. We were on the right side, unusual for me. So that with no pictures or videos allowed, made it hard to get them but many of us did it anyway🤣.They open with Nessun Dorma. Then songs like Surrender, Volare, Il Mondo, and quite a few solos. In between a couple of funny conversations, always teasing each other. They had the audience participate in Volare and Grande Amore. They did not come down at all, or have anyone up on stage, except for Piero during O Sole Mio. I think because of flu and the coronavirus scare. Really great concert. Their voices are all so great, and you can really tell a difference in now, and a few years ago. When Ignazio sings Memory, it is with so much expression. Wish I could go to every single one!!!! I will be in Taormina …in the center! and get good videos there! Have a great time everyone! ….Donna P.  

And how beautiful these photos taken from above by Debora Georgini Beaupre.
Thanks Deborah!

Atlantic City and Washington have also been done.

 We now know their song program, but it’s always nice to see their performance.

The feeling is that everything went well so far on the tour.


But the next stage will be very special, because in addition to a nice concert, there will be

Gianluca’s birthday !!!! ❤️❤️❤️

IL VOLO WORLD TOUR: RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL by Daniela

The fifth stage of the Il Volo World Tour was certainly the most coveted stage for Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero.

How much emotion in remembering the first time these guys had hoped one day to be able to perform in THIS theater, and now it is their third time, and it is sold out!

And here is the RoseMarie review:

We went to the sound check. We were only 30. The boys came down from the stage to greet, shake hands and Gianluca hugged. We stayed and waited for the show. It lasted two hours and they sang all the old songs. None new. But nice!

RCMH 25

And here the beautiful review of Elisa Marie, grazie mille!!

Hi Everyone!

I just attended the February 6th Il Volo sold-out Show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. I love you Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero–you put on an awesome. wonderful, magnificent concert, with great songs, tremendous strong voices, humorous moments that I found myself jumping up and down from my seat to applaud you after every single song. The ending — Grande Amore was so thrilling. You related to us so well –when you said “We love you New York” I hope you heard us scream out that we love you back –a million times over, Please come back to New York as soon as you can.

All my love and appreciation–IL VOLO FOREVER!!

Elisa Marie from Warwick, NY

Even RCMH has passed.

After a long wait, everything ends in a few hours.

A great event and another nice concert.

The road is still long, Atlantic City next stop!

IL VOLO WORLD TOUR: BOSTON by Daniela

And finally IL VOLO WORLD TOUR has arrived in BOSTON!

Finally, because we remember that in 2017, during the NOTTE MAGICA tour, the Boston stage was canceled due to snow storm.

So Boston fans, are you ready after such a long wait to rejoice with Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca again?

The concert takes place in the beautiful WANG Theater:

Here is a nice video taken during the rehearsal of the concert, posted by Gianluca.

Magnificent theater.

Donna Pothier’s review:

It was awesome ! They did not sing most of my faves, but someone said they sang a lot of Notte Magica, because Boston missed that one. They didn’t sing too many of their pop ones. After soundcheck which our part was short, they came down to say hello to everyone …about maybe 15 of us. Very nice.

_______________________________________________________________

Mary Minton’s review:

We did not attend the sound check in Boston, but from what we heard there were 14 people who attended and the boys also greeted them, shook their hands and chatted briefly after they finished rehearsing.  

It has been 4 years since the boys had been in Boston because 3 years ago their concert here was canceled due to a snowstorm, a fact that Piero mentioned during the concert, so it was a very enthusiastic sell out audience! 

Our seats in Boston, at the magnificent Wang Theater, were in the third row center and throughout most of the concert the boys were right in front of us! It was an incredible experience!

There was a slight change in the songs, Ignazio and Piero did not sing “O Paese d’o sole” as their duet, but instead sang “Core ‘ngrato” which all three did at Foxwoods. Also they did “Volare” later in the program than at Foxwoods.

They sang 25 songs, a solid 2 wonderful hours worth! They also looked very handsome, Gianluca in his black tuxedo and Piero and Ignazio in their black suits.

There were over 100 people at the meet and greet after the show and due to the viruses and flu going around we were told not to hug or kiss the boys. It went very quickly because we couldn’t say much to them, so it was just really having a photo taken. The VIP package included a tote bag, autographed photo, luggage tag and lanyard. We can’t believe that these two incredible concerts are over and are now looking forward to Taormina in September!

Here is a photo of the VIP gifts.

I had written to the Minton couple that John was also at the concert, in fact they met and made friends.

I am so happy with their meeting.

Boston 18

And this is John with Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca. “John, were you able to speak them in Italian? We await your impressions of the concert!!”

Boston 19

Even Boston has been archived so successfully.

Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero are truly incredible.

I thank everyone who sent videos, photos and reviews, you had fun and you made us have fun too!

A couple of days of rest and RCMH is waiting for Il Volo !!!!
