Il Volo news for Dec 19, 2014

Sanremo 2015 links & newsHere is still Dec 18, but the news on Italy are already online. News for Dec 19! Antonio Minutiello on Retro Magazine – Festival di Sanremo 2015: i cantanti in gara – makes critics to the Sanremo Festival, considering its evolution in the last few years. From a “theatrical” festival to a TV festival that highlights the singers fresh out of the talent shows. More emphasis on the competition: televoting, great movement among fans, than on the songs. One option for hip artists at the expense of the big names that made the history of Sanremo. We think that this criticism is right about the competitive and media aspects but, on the other hand, to keep the format without considering the social and cultural changes would make the festival stop on the time.

News about the tour 2015! According with sites of the Dominican Republic, Il Volo will be in concert at the amphitheater Nuryn Sanlley on August 29, 2015. As Il Volo does not released the dates of the 2015 tour, we will keep this great new in standby, waiting for official confirmation. Well…, we cannot put in standby the joy of the Dominican fans. The articles: El anfiteatro Nuryn Sanlley acogerá a estrellas en 2015 – by Severo Rivera on Diario Libre -, and Joaquín Sabina will perform his concert in the Nuryn Sanlley amphitheater in 2015 – on the Dominican Republic Official website (both on Dec 12, 2015).
