For the millions of U.S. fans who fell in love with the astonishing talent of Il Volo following their show-stopping PBS Special “Il Volo Takes Flight,” or as special guests of Barbra Streisand’s fall 2012 tour, the boys will return to North America for a series of 17 concerts. The Live Nation produced tour kicks off August 25, 2013 at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver, BC and includes a stop at the Tampa Bay Times Forum September 20, 2013 at 7:30 PM.
Il Volo released a new CD, We Are Love (Special Edition), May 28 on Interscope Records. The new offering features selections from their fall 2012 release “We Are Love,” as well as five newly recorded songs including: One Direction’s “Little Things,” Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel,” “Surrender (Torna A Sorrento),” “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and West Side Story’s “Maria.” We Are Love (Special Edition) was produced by Tony Renis and Humberto Gatica.
Il Volo’s new PBS special, “Il Volo: We Are Love,” was shot in Miami at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater in March and will air nationally on PBS beginning June 1 (check local listings). The special was produced by Richard Jay-Alexander, directed by Scott Lochmus with Detroit PBS as the producing agent. Il Volo’s debut PBS Special “Il Volo Takes Flight” has seen over 2,100 broadcasts between its original airing in March 2012, and again in June and December 2012.
Il Volo, Piero Barone (19), Gianluca Ginoble (18) and Ignazio Boschetto (18), released their self-titled debut album in April 2011 where it debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts and has gone on to sell over 1 million copies worldwide. Their astonishing vocals are reflected in their live CD/DVD set “Il Volo Takes Flight – Live From The Detroit Opera House” which include a mix of reimagined classics and original material. Il Volo’s second studio album We Are Love was released last fall as the group finished up a North American headline tour and a guest spot on Barbra Streisand’s tour. The trio’s live performances have received standing ovations across the U.S. and critical acclaim.
Il Volo have appeared on major U.S. television shows including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “The Talk,” “Ellen,” “Rachel Ray” and made a surprise appearance on the final episode of the HBO Series ‘Entourage’.
