GIANLUCA NEW APPEAL – IL VOLO WORLD TOUR: SAN JOSÉ and SAN RAFAEL by Daniela

Unfortunately Covid19 is infecting many people around the world.

The situation here in Italy is very serious. All of Italy has stopped. Everything closed, schools, churches, gyms, cinemas, theaters, museums, airports, stations, many shops, not necessary. From today, all shops except for food (always well supplied) and pharmacies will probably be closed.

Unfortunately, it seems that the seriousness of the situation is not well understood by young people, who continue to go out in the evening. For this reason Gianluca made an explicit appeal to the young people in his area.

I translate for you.

Hello everyone, I too am part of this initiative I HELP ROSETO. It is a situation that we all know, truly dramatic, that affects all of us, and therefore, I recommend YOU MUST STAY HOME. It is a message that I want to send above all to my peers, because it must start with us, the sense of belonging, the community, take care of ourselves, but in particular of the people who are close to us and above all of the elderly.

So please, let’s be responsible, WE STAY HOME, surely there will be many things that we will rediscover, be with the family, give priorities, try to have new hobbies, new passions. There is certainly a lot to do at home, so please, STAY HOME.

I hug you tightly, this too will pass, this moment will also pass.

Gianluca 01

Thanks Gianluca, there are no words, but only to reflect, for the good of all.

The SAN JOSÉ concert was another success, very few videos and photos.

Final greetings

Thank you San José for last night. We are spending amazing days here in the U.S.! Two more shows to go before to come back in our amazing country, facing a difficult time…  

But unfortunately, due to recent developments in the spread of viruses, the MARIN CENTER of San Rafael, where Il Volo was to perform tonight, is closed, and therefore the concert is canceled.

Gianluca 03

I am very sorry, for all those who had bought tickets, in time, to be able to attend an evening of entertainment and good music.

Unfortunately, situations are evolving quickly and action must be taken just as quickly.

Only two last concerts are missing and I hope with all my heart that they can be done, but without any risk.

I will conclude by translating this message from the Pope.

A hug from Daniela.

Gianluca 04

“Before you fall asleep tonight, think about when we will return to the street.
When we hug each other again, when, shopping together, it will seem like a party.

Let’s think about when the coffees will return to the bar, the small talk, the photos close to each other. Let’s think about when it will all be a memory, and normalcy will seem an unexpected and beautiful gift.

 

We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us.
Every second will be precious.
Swim at the sea, the sun until late, toasts, laughter.
We will go back to laughing together.

Strength and courage!
See you soon.”

POPE FRANCIS

IL VOLO WORLD TOUR: LOS ANGELES and INDIO by Daniela

Two more concerts finished.

One of our readers, Jackie Rote, was for the first time at their concert, in Mesa, today I read her comment and I want to finish this post with her nice words.

Daniela 

 

“ IL Volo” “my guys”! They are a gift to the world. I told Pastor in church today that if the people in the world no matter where you live were examples of IL Volo, there would be no wars, no hate, and the world be a joy to live in. I mean this from my heart. I am so fortunate to see that in them because they are perfect examples what human beings should be and act like.

It was a thrill to meet them. IL Volo is a gift to everyone who loves kindness, humility, love of pets, parents, and so many more things in life. May God Bless them and keep them safe and to let their light and laughter shine thru to all of us.

I can’t apologize for saying because these are true feelings of mine, and I pray they have a long life with joy and laughter. I hope all will enjoy and love them as I do.

Doing this because it’s not good-bye but CIAO!🥰💚😉🙏

IL VOLO WORLD TOUR MESA and SAN DIEGO by Daniela

The American tour of Il Volo continues undaunted and has many beautiful successes of audience and constant unaltered affection, despite their absence for two years.

March has begun, and the voice of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca rises very high in:

 

MESA March 1

Almost no videos from Mesa, but some good photos.

Of course we all know what they sing and we have already seen many of their videos, but the idea of continuing to publish videos of the various concerts is certainly for people who cannot go to their concerts and I know that they look forward to the updates, even if they are songs that we have already seen several times.

Under this photo, I read a nice comment and I hope that Doris Jaffe doesn’t scold me, because I also want you to read what she wrote:

“That’s me in the second row at the sound check wearing a cap and dark gray Il Volo sweatshirt. When we walked into the theater Ignazio greeted us. Each one of the guys came down from the stage, shook our hands and spent a little while chitchatting with us. A few people gave the guys gifts (tee shirts, pastries) but I gave them each a handwritten note to thank them for aiding me in my recovery from open heart surgery – I watched their videos 24/7 – their singing and antics elevated my mood. They are friendly, charming, personable, and better looking in person that what you see on screen. The show was marvelous. Glad I indulged myself.” 

Grazie mille, Doris! 😘

The long trail of concerts on American soil is slowly shortening.

Only 6 concerts and then everything will be concluded and a great void will remain …… but we still have fun, so next stop: Los Angeles!

In Tampa there was also our Regina Hanna, who sent us this nice review, thanks Gina!

My daughter Kim and I left Waco at 3 and came home after midnight. It is about 100 miles to Dallas but we have to travel on HWY I35 which is a nightmare. Huge trucks going in both directions. Dallas traffic is another mess. Anyway we got there and found the “AT & T Performing Arts Center” where the Opera House is located.

Impressed with the center and the army of volunteers keeping thing going smoothly. The “Winspear Opera House” holds 2600 and had a 5 tier box and balcony seating. When we bought the tickets we went by price and really lucked out to be on the second level box next to the stage. The box had chairs for four and we met a lady from Houston who was there with her friend from Los Angeles.

One of the members of the Flight Crew blog says not to watch all the bad little videos posted because they do not do justice to the boys. True. They looked so handsome, self assured and sounded fantastic.

The acoustics at the Opera House where very “strong” and  their voices sounded so good. Ignazio was his usual fidgeting, pulling up his pants and just lovable self. The first row in this theatre was so close to the stage with room to get into your seat and a little leg room but was filled with ladies that gave Ignazio a hard time. He even looked uncomfortable. One girl yelled out “my mother would leave my dad for you”.

The Texas fans are laid back but loud. Lots of cheering and clapping. There were couple rows that had empty seats. So not sure if it was sold out and people did not show up. I think this virus talk on TV day and night is scaring people to attend crowd events.

Wonder what will happens to IL Volo European Tour since so many places are closing events. They must be worried going home since Italy is having a problem with the virus.

I was amazed at the difference of boys in their black T-Shirts and somewhat shy and confident well dressed (suits) and sounding so so much stronger. 4 year span.

I am not sure how I feel about Ignazio doing some of the  “piano” sliding trick and some of the other silly gestures. I love him mo matter what but like a grandmother I wonder if he should “refine” his comic moments. Got home after midnight and had a good nights sleep. At my age a long day takes its toll. Anyway enjoyed and hope I am around for their next US Tour.😊Gina

Dallas 09

What can I say, the show repeats itself every time, and every time is a great success.

How much love for Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, really a GRANDE AMORE 😘

Their voices rise, majestic and powerful, but full of love and emotion, they give love and receive a lot of love !!! ❤️❤️❤️

IL VOLO WORLD TOUR: ORLANDO and FORT LAUDERDALE by Daniela

IL VOLO has come to the warm Florida sun. ☀️

Even the lineup of songs changes, as I thought !! Finally we also hear songs in Spanish.

Who knows why, but I have the impression that we will still have surprises.

But here we are at the first stop in Florida:

 

February 20: ORLANDO 

Here is the video of the entire concert.

At some point, a girl is embraced by Ignazio, will surely have been in seventh heaven !!!

What a blessing. ❤️❤️❤️

Another view of Ignazio and the surprised fan.

MARIA, after a long and playful dialogue by Ignazio 😁😁

Some nice photos of the evening.

February 22: FORT LAUDERDALE

Let’s start by saying that IL VOLO will be exhibited at the BB&T Sunrise Center.

This beautiful arena has about 20 thousand seats. There will be no closing drape.

Who knows if Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero will be able to fill everything?

Of course there are many people who love them and in reality, I hope so much for them, that this will happen, it would be really fantastic.

FTL 01

What can I say, looking at the photos of the concert, I would say that they succeeded. It’s sold out !!! Congratulations guys!

Who knows how much emotion they have to see all the people who love them and who came to listen to their splendid voices.

Incomparable! ❤️❤️❤️

Let’s see some videos:

Two more fantastic concerts are over. The road is still long, but it is slowly getting shorter.

Whoever has the opportunity, do not miss these beautiful opportunities to see Il VOLO, live in concert, is certainly an emotion to try.
