Il Volo Background
The three members of Il Volo, Piero Barone, Ognazio Boschetto Iicari,
and Gianluca Ginoble, met on the Italian TV music competition show, Ti lascio una canzone. Gianluca ended up winning the competition
after singing Andrea Bocelli's "Il mare calmo della sera". The three boys had grown close over the course of the show, so
once it ended, they decided to continue singing together. They chose the name "Il Volo" which means "the flight" in Italian—a
name that reflects how quickly their musical careers took off.
In 2010, they recorded their self-titled debut album
in Abbey Road Studios in London. After its release, it quickly peaked at number 6 on the Italian Albums Chart, and not long
after it was also released internationally. To promote their album, Il Volo traveled around the U.S., appearing on various
television and radio shows. The group sang "O Sole Mio" on American Idol, a massive platform that helped introduce them to
American audiences. Once the album dropped in the U.S., it debuted at number 10 on the Billboard 200 and quickly reached number
1 on the Classical Albums chart.
Il Volo's debut album didn't just cause a stir in America, however. Their album topped
charts all over the world, with major success in countries like Belgium, France, Austria, and the Netherlands. Their rapid
rise to fame earned them guest spots on television shows like Entourage and also landed them on stage with musical legends
like Barbara Streisand.
Even though the three boys are young, their musical talent is undeniable, and their crisp, powerful
operatic voices have left millions of listeners breathless. It is rare for such young and fresh faced men to take over the
opera music scene, but Il Volo has done it seamlessly, and has also added their young and more modern take to this classical
style of music. By infusing classical opera with modern pop sounds, Il Volo has taken opera to a new level, and has helped
a younger audience learn to love the beautiful power of opera music. Don't let the opportunity to see Il Volo perform live
pass you by! Grab your tickets to this breathtaking performance from StubHub!
Il Volo has
become a worldwide sensation, singing to sold out crowds in all four corners of the world. Their debut album, Il Volo, topped
music charts and helped spark their fame, with songs like "O Sole Mio" and "Un Amore Cosi' Grande" becoming instant favorites.
Il Volo also released a Christmas album in 2013 titled Buon Natale: The Christmas Album, which became one of the best selling
holiday albums of the year.
Did you know that the boys of Il Volo speak different dialects?
and Piero speak a distinct dialect of Italian—Sicilian. Because Gianluca didn't speak Sicilian, he often had a hard
time understanding his two friends. After spending years together, Gianluca has picked up on Sicilian and now is able to speak
with the other boys in their native dialect. All of the boys speak standard Italian as well, and are learning America English
and Chinese at the moment. During live performances, they can sing in German, French, English, Spanish, and Italian—their
ability to pick up languages is nothing short of extraordinary!
Let the beautiful sounds
of this operatic trio's voices soothe you and excite you. These teenage prodigies may be young, but they can put on one heck
of an incredible performance. Expect to see a mixed crowd at an Il Volo concert. Not only is Il Volo a huge hit among opera
enthusiasts, but the boys have also garnered a large teenage girl following—they are technically a teen boy band, after
all. The crowd will undoubtedly be fun and full of energy, and Il Volo will put on a show that you will never forget! Make
sure you see this teenage phenomenon perform live and buy your tickets on StubHub today!
