Il Volo — that’s Gianluca, Ignazio, and Piero — are gearing up for their North American tour, which kicks off at Kleinhans Music Hall in Buffalo, NY on February 5. Judging from their recent press run they are taking it very seriously. It’s only September but in recent days we’ve spotted them on local TV stations in both Atlanta (hey y’all!) and Los Angeles (like OMG). For full tour dates, click here.
During their recent appearance on PBS SoCal (in L.A.), the group talked about their programme DVD “Il Volo: Live from Pompeii” ($84) and how proud they were to have won Italy’s Sanremo Festival. The host also asked them about Eurovision and Gianluca made it clear that the people mean more to him than the professional jury: “We won the televote so that’s the most important thing,” he says. The host also prods him about his victory in the wiwibloggs Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model contest. Gianluca says singing is more important to him than being cute. Fair enough!
