If the stars shone over Taormina, now the rain waited, watching enchanted the great concert of Il Volo to finally cry thrilled over Pescara.
On September 5, 2014 Il Volo attend a magnificent concert in Pescara, the third concert in Italy, the first in the region of Abruzzo, from where Gianluca Ginoble came to be part of the group. This concert has been nurtured by the producer Massimo Fregnani, the manager Michele Torpedine and for Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca as well.
The beautiful Teatro D’Annunzio was busy in the last days with the preparation and rehearsals for the concert. The Orchestra Regional Filarmonia Veneta published photos and news on facebook about the rehearsals and the press emphasized the presence of Maestro Diego Basso conducting the 39 musicians in the concert. Also the singers of Il Volo were busy and joyfully anticipating this evening, as Gianluca Ginoble, who was going to sing at home told us.
Several fans early published photos of the venue and of the sound check on all networks. A wonderful concert was being expected and it came true at night. The concert was opened by Daniele Falasca, a beautiful performance of “Scaccia crisi” from his new album “Insieme”, and then Il Volo was ready to entered the stage. The Teatro D’Annunzio was completely sold out when Il Volo took the stage and the first chords of Un Amore Cosi Grande sounded. And the evening was pure joy and emotion.
Il Volo performed songs of the Italian classic repertoire, international songs and amazing solos that enchanted the audience. The set list included Un amore cosi grande, Granada, Tous les visages des l’amour, We are love, Caruso, Io che non vivo (the audience sang along!), E più ti penso, È la mia vita, Mattinata, Il Canto, Smile, Mamma, Maria, Beautiful Day, Torna a surriento and culminating with O Sole Mio. Il Mondo was out of the performance this time, thanks to the sky that moved began to cry and because of Ignazio’s strong performance, in which his pants “surrendered”. Moments that will last forever on the hearts of everyone present!
Among the songs presented by the group, the solos, magnificent performances: No puede ser, the famous aria of La tabernera del puerto, by Piero Barone (amazing!), Quando l’amore diventa poesia, Massimo Rainieri on Sanremo 1969 , by Ignazio Boschetto, Can’t help falling in love (with you), Elvis Presley’s hit, a very matured interpretation by Gianluca Ginoble, Memory, outstanding performance of Ignazio Boschetto. Daniele Falasca, accordionist of Abruzzo, gave again a special bright to the performance of Gianluca on Anema e Core, and touched his girlfriend heart as well. Daniele proposed and she said YES!
All the performances solo were received with huge, breathtaking standing ovations. A great success!
Two hours of music and magic as only Il Volo can accomplish.Thank you Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio for your talent, for your warm and kind heart, for the blessing of the music.
A wonderful night acclaimed by the press and for all the fans that keep posting photos and videos all over the night. Il Volo is making their dreams come true day by day and we are lucky and privileged witnesses.
