OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF IL VOLO on the social networks on January 22nd, 2016 – The emails exchanged with the Inauguration organization team were removed by Il Volo on January 23rd, and so by us, too. – Read in English



COMUNICATO IN ITALIANO:

Leggiamo disgustati l’ultimo attacco fatto contro di noi sul web dai soliti personaggi televisivi e dai loro squallidi seguaci. Ancora una provocazione che fatta in un momento così drammatico per tutti e per uno di noi in modo particolare, diventa un atto miserabile.

Difatti strumentalizzare addirittura con gratuita volgarità la disgrazia che colpisce l’intero Paese per tornare ancora sulla nostra mancata partecipazione ai festeggiamenti dedicati al nuovo Presidente degli USA, in questi drammatici momenti non interessa noi né tutti gli altri italiani, così come restano irrilevanti i commenti negativi e diffamatori a noi rivolti da chi non ci apprezza.

Pubblichiamo comunque la documentazione dell’effettivo invito ricevuto per la nostra esibizione richiesta per l’insediamento del Presidente Trump e da certi detrattori data per falsa, solo per rispetto nei confronti dei nostri fan e di tutti coloro che ci seguono, ci stimano e ci vogliono bene. (Rimossa il 23 gennaio 2017 da Il Volo)

Tante difatti sono state le dimostrazioni di stima ricevute e le difese prese nei nostri confronti da persone ben pensanti che senza pregiudizi non hanno mai messo in dubbio la nostra onestà intellettuale, unitamente a quelli che, giusta o sbagliata, hanno condiviso la nostra scelta.

In altra sede poi sono già state intraprese dai nostri legali opportune e decise azioni contro l’evidente diffamazione cui siamo stati sottoposti, per salvaguardare il nostro buon nome, la nostra attività professionale e la nostra rispettabilità individuale.

Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto e Gianluca Ginoble, de IL VOLO.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION by AAIV team:

Disgusted, we are reading about the last attack against us made on the web by the usual, well-known TV personalities and by their sleazy followers. Once again, a provocation that – made in such a dramatic moment for everyone and, for one of us in particular – becomes a miserable action.

In fact, exploiting – even with uncalled-for vulgarity – the misfortune that is hitting the whole Country in order to go back once more to our non-participation at the celebrations for the new President of the USA, in these dramatic moments, this is of no interest to us, nor to all other Italians, as well as negative and defamatory comments addressed to us by those who do not appreciate us remain irrelevant.

Anyway, we are publishing the documentation of the actual invitation received, requesting our performance at the Inauguration of President Trump, claimed fake by some detractors, only in respect towards our fans and all those who follow, appreciate and love us. (Removed by Il Volo on January 23rd, 2017)

We have in fact received many demonstrations of esteem and actions of defense, taken by smart people that, free from prejudice, have never doubted on our intellectual honesty, together with those who have shared our choice – whether it is a right or wrong one.

Moreover, elsewhere our attorneys have already taken appropriate and decisive actions against the clear defamation we have been subjected to, in order to preserve our good name, our professional activity and our individual respectability.

Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto Gianluca Ginoble, of IL VOLO.

  1. Good luck guys. These people need to learn to keep their poisonous opinions to themselves. Thank you for the translation.

  2. Really proud of these three young men. They stand beside many great artists who also declined the invitation. Artists from many countries and different ages. I admire these boys for their talents and the courage of their convictions. Hopefully, they will ignore the comments made by ignorant people.

    • so proud of you guys ! you have your fanbase all over yhe world ! i love you much for what you stand for ,even at your young age ! love your music <3 you are the best 3 artist i have ever known ,at your age ! stay true to yourself !!! much love,inga bosch= jax fl. usa see you soon !

  3. I am impressed with such honesty and integrity. I support artists and creators who stand with others against various attempts of assaults on the truth. Thank you.

  4. io credo che sono le case discografiche italiane che per paura che i propri artisti vengano totalmente sopraffatti dalla voce, dalla musica e dal genio de il Volo, e quindi perdere i loro capitali, ordinano, pagandoli, ai loro peggiori giornalisti mercenari per vomitare il loro veleno e la loro cattiveria su il Volo, o agli pseudo critici (tutti sgradevoli, ignoranti, incompetenti e di nessun gusto artistico, semplici capre -e con questo non voglio offendere le vere capre che sono dolci animali migliori di loro) . Credo che questa feccia di critici dovrebbero essere anch’essi insultati e screditati con peggiori frasi del loro pessimo linguaggio, solo per fargli capire quanto male fanno. Per quanto riguarda poi quei pochissimi commenti offensivi sotto i migliaia di video su youtube, ho notato che sono postati sempre dalle stesse pochissime persone le quali secondo me sono (inconsciamente ) i più grandi ammiratori dei nostri magnifici ragazzi de il Volo, per il semplice motivo che sono i più assidui loro ascoltatori, infatti per commentarli devono andare sempre nei loro video. A me se non piace un artista non vado mai sui suoi video, semplicemente li ignoro e non sto dalla mattina alla sera a postare insulti o parolacce offensive. Per finire voglio fare i miei complimenti a questo sito, che unisce migliaia di splendide e care persone da tutto il mondo, questo sito lo seguo da tantissimo tempo, ogni giorno, come ogni giorno e più volte al giorno ascolto la musica del Volo, è una medicina quotidiana talmente benefica che fa bene al corpo e all’anima, ma sopratutto alla pace degli esseri umani.

    • La ringraziamo per il suo apprezzamento.
      Non condividiamo la “legge del taglione” ma speriamo che con oggi si possa mettere la parola fine ad una vicenda assurda.
      Saluti!

  5. I’m just a fan,I ‘m not italian,I follow the boys for 1 and half year,from the Eurovision Song Contest and then……,it was a love at first sight that now is stronger …..not because they are cute boys,many young singers are beautiful,but because except their extraordinary voices they have extraordinary natures…..they are so trustworthy men in everything they say….so humble,so sweethearts ,sharing great emotions to the fans of any age!They give joy,moments of happiness to their fans,they have changed the life of many people in many ways and something else very significant is that they ‘ve given to the italian belcanto a new fresh life and make it known all over the world again……and Ι wonder how can be italians that critisize and accuse them in this way…… But I know that noone is a prophet in his own country…..and it’s a pity…Me ,a stranger,I trust them….and I had no need to read this correspondence to believe them……. and instead, there are so many compatriots personalities and gournalists that they don’t …..Are they paid to do it?.. this is my conclusion of the attacks to these young singers that their life and work must be an example to the youngs !Very proud to be a fan of Il Volo,an ilvolover ,even in my age(56)!Katerina,a greek ilvolover,and now an admin in three fan groups!

    • Katerina, you said everything I could have said & more.
      I, too, am long time American fan of Il Volo, even at my age of 71! Their sweet voices have helped me through some difficult times! They are the most awesome, charming young men ever! A forever fan!

      • Katarina and Cheryl, I agree with you entirely. These guys are a breath of fresh air in a wicked world because of their extraordinary natures They have and are helping so many with their music, generosity and ability to spread love. It would seem that the Italian press is even more vicious and poisonous than ours in the UK.
        I think Il Volo are awesome wonderful men, an example to all.

        • Hi Sue. I’m also from the UK. I’ve followed these boys since they were children singing on Italian television. I spend a lot of time in Firenze with Italian friends and I have to say I have only heard fantastic comments from Italians I know and have met. These boys are totally inspirational. My daughter is a professional singer and is also a fan. These boys will be performing when those who write negative comments are sitting in their rocking chairs. Keep enjoying their music

      • I love Il Volo from the bottom of my heart. I am 66. Their voices help me to get over big tragedy- li lost my son – he also had a beautiful voice. It is accepted that they stay away from the politics. I will always love them. I cannot wait to see them again in Radio City Hall.

  6. Your fans will always be your fans. As it turns out, your country needed you there. The disasters that have struck have all of your fans praying and sending hope and good wishes to the citizens of Italy, especially Abruzzo (which happens to be where my dad was born). We are all glad Guanluca and his family are safe.

  7. You are loved by your fans all around the world. I live in the United States and completely, without any reservations, respect your decision . As huge fans of Il Volo we are counting the days when you will be here on your tour in March. We live in Phoenix, Arizona and attended the concert last year in Mesa, thanks to PBS. My 11 year old granddaughter fell in love that evening. I can’t begin to thank the three of you for the amazing bonding experience this has been. We were fortunate to also see you in Vienna. This year in will be in Los Angeles. We are not wealthy, just lucky and greatful to be able to take advantage of such a blessing. May you always receive God’s blessings.

  8. I feel tears welling up every time I here comments against these fine talented men…Yes MEN..they are no longer boys and are mature enough to make decisions that are right for their lives and careers. II salute you guys and sign off with Love!❣

  9. Bravo Il Volo……they have the right to do whatever the hell they want….why cause they turned down the honor of singing at the inauguration?…big deal!!! There were hardly any celebrities there if anyone noticed…that should tell you something..I for one am very proud of them..

  10. First of all, thank you for the translation. IL VOLO owes nothing to now President Trump, nor does Italy. I’m so glad that IL VOLO took a stand and it’s too bad that there are so many negative people (they must be Trump supporters) in IL VOLO land. I stand by IL VOLO, they are artists and politics has no place in the world of artists. Stay Strong IL VOLO and Italy.

  11. It is embarrassing the way some Americans are behaving. Why would you want to perform in this event. You have your own beautiful country, you are a guest here in the US when you come…We love you and your music…And I appologize for these idiots making these remarks…

  12. This makes me so sad!! These sweet humble young men have to suffer from these other TV personalities and their followers’ hatred!! Our boys politely declined at the inauguration because they did not want to get involved with American politics, and besides they had their own business in Italy where they had natural disasters, and they had to be there to help their countrymen!! Mean haters should leave these poor sweet young men alone!! I love these boys as if they were my sons!!

  13. As an IL Volo lover and U S citizen just let me say how proud I am of you guys you guys have more heart, and character than our new president could ever have and anyone who would attack you for not attending our US inauguration show how ignorant they are I don’t care how well known they are. They must be scum. Take heart Piero, Gianlucca, and Ignazio I have loved you since I first saw you and am more in love with you now more than ever. Continue to grow and prosper like I know you will and always follow your hearts. You will never go wrong and know your loyal fans will follow you forever. You’re the best there is.

  14. I, too, am a U.S. citizen and am proud of you guys for standing up for your values. As others have stated, why should you be involved in U.S. politics. You are concerned rightly with the terrible events that happened in your country and we pray for your countrymen and your own safety. I am proud of you and think more of you for turning down the invitation. Why would anyone have wanted to be involved with the inauguration of that man!

    Stay strong and know you have many people around the world who respect you and love you and stand by you.

  15. Il Volo represents TRUE LOVE to the highest degree! Not only are they young, super talented, caring and accepting of all people, they realize the GOODNESS in humanity! I will always love you for the hope you bring to all generations! You are the best and truly wonderful, outstanding young men! LOVE lives through you and will always be recognized! If only we could clone you, the world would be such a BEAUTIFUL place! Wishing you, your families and your country the very, very best during these difficult times! Sending my prayers. Can’t wait to be with you in San Jose in March! Much love, precious ones!

  16. Cari ragazzi de Il Volo , non vi preoccupate delle polemiche e chi vi critica. Lasciateli parlare. Voi ora dovete rilassarvi in famiglia e pensare a prepararvi al magnifico tour che vi attende. Voi siete dei bravissimi e stupendi cantanti questo è quello che dovete fare è impegnarvi al massimo come avete se.pre fatto. Ci avete sempre regalato tante emozioni. Grazie

  17. I am also from the USA. I stand by Il Volo. They have every right to choose not to do the inauguration. The boys names have been dragged through the mud. That’s not right. #iostoconilvolo

  18. I am so proud of your decision to decline the invitation to see Trump.
    I will see you in Tampa and will be flying half way across the country but you are worth it. This will be my sixth time in six years to go to an Il Volo concert.

  19. Nobody is a bigger Il Volo fan then I- I have all their CD’s, have been to a concert and have tickets for another and gave Il Volo CD’s to family as gifts ! I love them very much and also listen to them on U-Tube – Their music touches me deeply.

    I have to say, though, as a Trump supporter I was sorry to hear they were not performing. President Trump will be our best president ever and it is a shame they missed out on such an auspicious occasion! We Trump supporters are boycotting any celebrity who has made negative comments about our new president and I am among them but I, because of my love for Il Volo and because they are not citizens of America and because beautiful Italy, which I love, is suffering with disasters, will give them a pass and continue with my support and love.

    I pray they stay safe and that beautiful Italy rises beyond her calamities and invasions and remains a beloved and glorious place !

    • Keep politics out of this forum. Your support of Trump and your decision to boycott his detractors is irrelevant and doesn’t belong here. Aren’t the guys fortunate that you’re “giving them a pass” because they are not US citizens. They are young men who can decide for themselves when, where and for whom they will perform. They certainly don’t need your “pass”.

      • Emmy- this is a post about Il Volo not performing at Trump’s inauguration- are you so mired in your hatred for our dear President Trump that you cannot see that or are you just plain stupid I vote fopr stupid !!!!!

          • Dear Frances, Maybe Emmy is understandably worried about things like the safety of our shared environment, human rights, our democracy in this republic, the importance of our foreign policy, and a leader who is honest, trustworthy and would voluntarily follow the ethical steps to help prove that to the people, as every president has always and automatically done. I sincerely wish you only the Best, Frances. God Bless you and Emmy, this country, all countries, Il Volo, our Earth.

          • It’s sad and scary for our country that President Trump promised repeatedly that he would disclose his tax returns and foreign business information, but refused to do so after being sworn in to power. That has caused people to wonder and worry about what, exactly, might he be hiding that could effect the well-being of our country.

          • I am not stupid and I highly resent your mischaracterization. Leave your insults on a political blog and not here.

        • Frances, Please, please don’t call people names here if you feel upset by something someone feels and expresses. I guess it’s really true that “religion & politics” can sometimes be flashpoint topics for many people which is the reason a lot of people generally like to avoid the subject. I, as well, must remember to always keep my own ‘flashpoints’ in check !

  20. These young men are the envy of anyone who appreciates their dedication, their beautiful voices, their ability to sing any song in almost any language, and their devotion to each other. They do not need the vulgarity most of our “A list” performers need to be “accepted” and idolized. They are true artists, professional performers, and role models for all young children of all nations. Long live Il Vollo and may their beautiful voices forever grace our lives. Loved them when they competed and won Italy Has Talent and their tours around the world and will always be their devoted fan.

  21. So sorry you have been treated so awfully. I an American support you 100%. I support our new President as well. Haters are worthless closed minded garbage. You are worth so very much more than those creeps will ever be. Love you three talented young men.

  22. From what we were told it wasn’t the turning down of the invitation but what Piero was suppose to have said about our President and some started saying mean things back like America put you on the road to success and now you spit on us and many other remarks which weren’t nice I too am a fan almost from the beginning and always will be. But don’t understand why they are being so critized by their own people and country To be love is to give love

  23. It’s unfortunate that Italy has professional critics that make it their business to tear down others’ successes. They use their media platforms (usually talk radio/opinion columns) to lambast their latest target. Truth is not part of the equation. Scintillating news that incites controversy garners more listeners/readers. Mr Sgarbi is more interested in his own voice and enlarging his audience. Bravo to Il Volo for their decision to pursue legal action over these scurrilous actions against their integrity and good name.

  24. Regardless of political parties, I strongly believe support and respect someone else opinion and conviction besides my own; because, that exactly what defines us of as highly intelligent population. Stand strong IL VOLO.

  25. Teresa- It is sad and scary that a political candidate would “lose” thousands of email sand lie about it and do many other nefarious deeds and cover it up and lie about Bengazi where many people were murdered but I guess that is the nature of some politicians- Thank God our dear President Trump is not a politician- God Bless our dear President Trump !

    • Frances, I really don’t enjoy discussing these things here, either, but for the record, unfortunately it is a fact that CIA Director, James Comey, has already been discredited and actually should be fired as Director of the CIA for re- opening that investigation shortly before our US election and then CLOSING it again for having found NO case for further investigation, just a couple days before the election. Mr. Trump benefited from Comey’s abuse of power, for the damage done to Candidate Clinton was successful and especially at that ’11th Hour’ – – re/ those voters who were undecided. Also, Frances, Rudy Giuliani was on a national news program (The Republican-biased FOX news), just days before Comey released the last-minute statement about re-opening the investigation, and he (Giuliani) now-famously stated, while grinning and gleefully rubbing his hands together, that “we have a couple of surprises up our sleeves that are coming!” I saw that, myself, happening live on the show). The Trump people also put out an unprecedented “fake news” (about the Democratic candidate, Secretary Clinton) propaganda campaign all over the internet and tabloid newspapers and TV. It was a BOMBARDMENT and one never seen before during any prior U.S. election campaign.( I still get huge ‘pop-ups’ with Mr. Trump’s face on it at times on the internet, giving one the momentary feeling of living under a regime rather than in a Democracy!) These are just a few facts, but I hope I don’t feel the need to reply here anymore about the sad state of our political situation this past year and henceforth. I sincerely wish us all well. My best wishes and sincere regards to you, Frances.

      • Teresa- give it a rest- Clinton was a corrupt liar and Director Comey did nothing wrong by exposing her corruption . It is very sad that you and other liberal leeches would rather have a corrupt liar then a man who is for the people and not a politician ! Nevertheless, we won you lost bwaaaaaa !!!! Deal with it !

        • Hi Frances, (I am not “a liberal;” which, as you may know, is nowadays a pejorative term when used by angry “conservatives,” just for the record). Most Democratic voters were not ‘in love’ with candidate Clinton, either. There was a better, third-party candidate, ‘unfortunately’, during this critically pivotal election, who was running as well. Frances, non-Republicans are not “leeches” nor ‘crying’ over what was presumed to be a legitimate outcome of this last election. What people – in this country and around the world – are very and naturally concerned about are this new administration’s extremely dangerous policies and ideologies, the likes and scope and breath of which our republic and democracy has ever been threatened with in the history of this nation. The MAJORITY of this country prefers to continue living in a democracy, NOT under an authoritarian regime – which certainly appears to actually be happening now. Tragically, Frances, if it becomes as bad as it surely looks to be, citizens who feel and think as you do would likely not like it, either, unless you are very wealthy and don’t truly care about your air and water quality, taxes, climate changes, the prospects for the poor and working class of this country, continued free education for our youth etc., etc. I am sorry that I must disagree with you about this new president and his Cabinet and administration being “for the people” of this great country. Please try to understand that people who have true compassion and empathy aren’t lamenting an election loss ( All political parties have lost elections throughout the years.) Frances, what you are seeing since the election is all about the fact that more ‘inclusive’ people just can’t stand by – watching our country’s great democracy be unraveled and destroyed, nor watch as our country’s safety and international stability and peace become jeopardized, our soldiers, currently on active duty serving in the Middle East, being placed in even worse danger now, due to reckless and provably untrue statements (on very recent, live TV) by the new president about the U.S. goal of involvement there, etc. Lastly, re/ Comey “exposing (Clinton’s) corruption” is a case that was CLOSED by him, twice. (I mentioned it in previous comment). I sure wish you could more broadly be informing yourself about political, general, national and international news and trying from a non-partisan, more ‘open-minded’ perspective, so that you could, perhaps, be less hostile towards and understanding of why so many people are still forced to talk about this particular inauguration and it’s numerous, stated, ominous promises that effect the lives of millions of people and our very planet’s well-being. I sure hope you will understand that I have been trying to only share some facts with you of which you seem to not be aware as yet. (For the sake of the other people here, let’s both not go back and forth any longer. If you want to reply to this reply, please know that, no matter what, I send you all best wishes, Frances.

          • God Bless President Trump- My advice to you is to not believe ANYTHING in the lying corrupt American media- They are trying to destroy President Trump and start a civil war imo ! BTW the liberals (or whatever you call them) do not have a lock on on all the things you mentioned- We on the other side value very much the good qualities of life on this dear planet, probably more then the vicious liberals
            who are as phony and corrupt as they come !
            !

        • Please, Frances and Teresa! This post was about Il Volo and their answer to a unfair critic they received. We are not discussing here the USA elections. Nothing against your discussion, but we think the better in this case is to find a forum that are hosting this theme. Or even to talk in private.
          We ask you to come back to the theme of our post.
          Best!
          Suzana
          AAIV team

          • Thank you, Marirussu.
            I actually wasn’t going to reply ever again, as I knew that the inauguration topic was going ‘nowhere’ there and, also, that you were about to request what you did (today.) It had, indeed, become too serious a subject for this wonderful site of light, love, IL VOLO.

    • I will not debate politics with you any more in this forum. As I have said repeatedly, it is inappropriate. Let’s keep the conversation about Il Volo and stay away from discussing political choices. We should agree to disagree and leave it at that. Name calling accomplishes nothing but resentment and diverts our focus for the true purpose of this forum.

  26. Thank you for the translations. Although I must say it was not necessary because I always believed you and feel you have every right to accept or decline. Cannot wait to see you at Radio City.

  27. In Italy, the decision of our loving young men Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, IL VOLO, not to sing for the New American President, was not at all the REAL issue for attacking them. The Real issue is about success, “profit and interests”! And these stinky people didn’t stop even when the sad and unspeakable tragedy hit Italy and especially the region of Abruzzo. They continued with very low language to insult the three of them as liars, as if this choice of IL VOLO was the “Main Italian Misfortune”!! Shame on them!!!
    And the TRUE Italian, Abruzzo Tragedy still goes on…. God help us!!

  28. Love and prayers to yourselves and the Abruzzi region. God will hold you in the palm of His hand and give you many blessings.

  29. It has often been said by the Obama’s (Former President & Former First Lady) “When people go low (your critics), you go high.” Hang in there. This too shall pass.

    See you in Tampa,Fl.

  30. Um absurdo é o que vem acontecendo com estes rapazes… Não consigo entender como pessoas com tanto talento podem ser vítimas de críticas tão ridículas. Fico pensando se estes críticos são pagos para “acabarem” com as pessoas ou se são cruéis de graça mesmo. Não sei o que se passa na Itália, país que gosto tanto, mas pelo que fiquei sabendo nos últimos dias, a crítica italiana é maldosa com os rapazes do Il Volo. Não concordo e sempre vou prestigiá-los.

    • Stella,
      If the truth be known these so-called “critics” are usually very unhappy and jealous of other people’s success. They are to be pitied.

  31. Love and respect il Volo. Ignore the whole issue it is not worth their time. I dislike reading politics on this so
    Wonderful site. Keep it il Volo please. We need a place like this to read positive things about these three talented and wonderful guys.
    God Bless them and may their successes continue for decades to come.

  32. Maybe this person needs negative advertising, or attention. But we do not want to give him this. Ignore we fans him, and look forward to our talented and loving guys.

  33. Bravo boys , ignore all the negative comments. You are very well educated and clever and talented so IGNORE them we appreciate you and love you too.

  34. Io adoro Il volo per la loro fantastica voce che mi fa star bene per cui li seguo nei loro tour italiani e i DVD e CD. Non devono dare importanza a critiche volgari dettate dall’invidia e gelosia, ma proseguire con il loro talento e simpatia nel successo che stanno avendo. UN carissimo abbraccio e ci vedremo a l concerto di Roma Amalia maria Ambruzzi

  35. The published invitation was a downgraded performance venue. Only 1500 would see them, no TV and a string quintet. It was disappointing to see them invited to a private audience and the fans thought it would have been a big performance – worthy of them. They were NOT going to sing with Jackie Evancko after the president’s swearing in with all the world watching. It would have been small, unknown and unseen. The guys do not need this problem with the horrific things they are dealing with at their own home – Italy. It seemed to me like a lackluster “place” (a private dinner) for them to perform without thousands or millions seeing them.

  36. I am 74 and my husband is 80 and we LOVE Il Volo. We are very proud of them for speaking out and not compromising their values. They have every right to do so.
    These young men have good morals and ethics and did what they felt was right for them. BRAVO!
    It’s so sad anyone would condemn them.
    Keep your heads held high, YOU ARE LOVE!!

  37. In spite of their erroneous decision not to sing for President Trump, I will forgive Il Volo this one time and continue with my love and devotion to them . But I must caution them to not delve into politics as it is a losing game for them. They will alienate half of their base one way or another. God Bless President Trump, God Bless Il Volo, God Bless America, God Bless Italy !

    • They have every right to decline the invitation. They are the best and donald trump will not miss them just as he did not miss the American artists. And we all know there were many. Guys keep doing what feels right for you. God bless you and your families.

  38. I didn’t have a problem of them not wanting to perform, but they could have just replied that they had other commitments at that time, instead of what they said. I noticed that they were standing behind and made a statement concerning Placido Domingo. Don’t get me wrong, I adore these young men. I will be attending my 5th concert and meet and greet in 2020.
