Il Volo sings Un Amore Così Grande

Date: June 15, 2011
I think it was for an Italian TV show. Gianluca got some great tan, didn't he? ;D

Il Volo performs in Palma

Date: June 18, 2011

Il Volo performed O Sole Mio in Coliseo Balear (also known as Plaza de Toros) in Palma de Mallorca in the Balearic Islands. I think this territory is governed by Spain but I'm slightly confused since the show hosts aren't really speaking in Spanish. In fact, the performance is for a German TV show called "Wetten Dass." Anyway the place is soooooooo cool.

This is Il Volo's 15 minute interview from that show, Wetten Dass. 15 minute interview is pretty cool, except I have no idea what they are saying ;(

Il Volo interview in Germany

Watch from 1:45!
Again, much thanks to the fabulous Google translator, here is Il Volo's interview in Germany.

Gianluca: On our CDs, there is no classic piece like "Nessun dorma" or arias like "La boheme." Our CD contains songs with lyrical music that lies somewhere between pop and opera. And this genre isn't very common. Few singers pursue this genre and we want to be part of this incredible device. We hope that we can bring this music to the German audience and hope they enjoy it!

Ignazio: We are aware that our music approaches basically not a very young group of audiences. The people who listen to our music are probably older than 30 or 40 year olds. But our goal is to make this music and get the young people closer. Younger people listen to pop-and rap-music daily. We hear this music genre too, it pleases us and we sing at home every time. But why should we not make our music accessible to young people?

No interview of Piero? :(

Well more like Gianluca is singing the song and Ignazio is beat boxing. 
Very short clip but it's so refreshing to see them singing Lady Gaga's song :D
