They were the televote favourite of Eurovision 2015 and have only grown in popularity since Vienna. Now Italian popera trio Il Volo are showing a new side, with a spicy photoshoot in Rolling Stone Italia magazine. They embrace biker style, with Piero especially showing fans a new bad-boy image.

The November edition of the Italian music magazine shows a new side of Il Volo, with the trio looking rough and ready in black leather and grease. The three Italian stallions have been teasing fans by posting pics from the shoot to their Instagram accounts.

Gianluca is channelling the spirit of Marlon Brando in the classic biker film The Wild One. He is quite the junior leather daddy, looking bold in shiny black leather and chains.

Ignazio looks to have been taking style cues from Greta Salóme and is rocking a breastplate with black tassels. While he is also wearing black leather trousers and a leather jacket, Ignazio brings Italian swagger to the look. With the jacket worn loosely draped over his shoulders, Ignazio would be just at home enjoying an espresso at a Milano coffee house than he would hitting the road.

But the Il Volo member that has all the fans talking is Piero. Gone are his cheerful red spectacles. Instead he’s rocking stubble, chains, shoulder pads and a pure blue steel gaze — and not much else in the way of clothes. It’s also apparent that Piero has been working out and is very happy to show off his athletic physique.

Some Il Volo fans have been taken aback by Piero’s sexy new image, with one commenting that “seeing pubic hair on this picture really is against what classic music is all about”.

But most fans are loving Piero’s hot new look, with comments including “Omg Baby you look so hot!! I wanna lick you”, “OMG!! So sexy”, “OH MY GOD I JUST CANT HANDLE IT” (in fact, “Oh my God” in many different European languages) and plenty of heart-eyes emojis.

The magazine also features an interview with the trio. They’re promoting their new live album, Notte Magica – A Tribute to The Three Tenors, and Piero says that as a boy, he was always inspired by Pavarotti. Gianluca adds that people didn’t think that three guys in their early 20s could handle that sort of music — but Il Volo have just gone ahead and done it.

The interview mentions their heavy touring schedule, sometimes even spending five months away from home. Gianluca says they always look forward to returning home.

The trio also find the time to name-drop, mentioning having celebs encounters like Ignazio high-fiving Steven Tyler, Gianluca noticing tiny Tom Cruise’s high shoes, and Piero chatting about hairdressers with Barbra Streisand (“With divas, you talk about diva things.”).

I’m a 72 year old woman and these guys can do anything and I would love, love, love them. These photos in Rolling Stone Italia stretched things a bit, but that’s what good art does. It goes beyond the norm. We can’t imagine The Three Tenors posing this way, but that was a different era. This group is developing their own style. They need to keep us “on our toes” talking about them. These photos are lovely. Their music (all three of them are truly outstanding singers), their bodies, their looks, their black hair, everything is wonderful. They’re in the… Read more »

Charles is a bitter man – I love Il Volo, but I must admit I love them more in their natural state. We all know they are handsome talented and sexy so enough with all the posing – just sing and be cute !

I am disappointed with the photo’s. That’s not Il Volo. The home type photo’s and video’s on You Tube, on stage, at the beach, at home, and in interviews are much much better than the photo’s for the magazine? All of them look totally uncomfortable in the above photo’s. Leave something to the imagination is sexy. Put on a pair of levi’s and a t-shirt or Henley type shirt and it’s oh yeah!! Sexy. These photo’s are terrible and just my opinion, but I wouldn’t be spreading them around. These talented, young men are so relatable, but not in the… Read more »

@Charles: Your comment doesn’t go against my perception, I’m just asking when Il Volo has cried to claim their victory? That’s not about perception, that’s about facts that you mention. Still no answer and I’m curious. 😉

Go ahead, keep insulting. Get it all out, this blog is obviously the only place where you can “speak your mind” (how brave). I have all my time and a LOT of patience. 😉

Yours sincerely,
Racal, Santa believer, homework avoider, Britney Spears adorer (apparently), sensitive soul, and all kinds of horrible other things.

popmusic is nice for me also…as long as the song is good. Sweden won with a nice pop song. Or France this year, also great pop.

You’re asking way too much to poor old Santa … Do your homework once you get the chance get a grip first! 🙂 Unless you’re one of those who actually believes Britney Spears can sing live … PS: Just a serious piece of advice … Find something way more relevant to do than to mess up with every single comment that goes against your perception … pretty sure that if you managed… Read more »

@MoreMusicLessGlamourPlease To make it clear… I have no problem if you love rock music. As you said, everyone has their own preferences and I respect that. The problem though is that some people base their opinions on stereotypes that say (for example) “Rock music is amazing, pop is crap”. So they will pretend they love every single rock song, even if they actually don’t and they will hate on every pop song. I hope you are not one of those people and you truly love rock music. You were right, I shouldn’t bash you while I actually haven’t even met… Read more »

“I am also sure many parents are having second thoughts about allowing their kids to follow Il Volo.” One day ago they performed at Xfactor Brazil and they were in suit and tie then they spoken to the fans and they were wearing jeans and shirt.They speak three languages and they are learning the fourth,they are always kind with the fans,they are always invited to perform to the gala because they are elegant,etc…You’re right,they aren’t a good example for the children because they’ve done a photoshoot for Halloween.It’s better to follow the others singers which are almost naked on stage,throw… Read more »

“(J)ESC Fanatic – what kind of assumpation is that? Totally wrong and a bit rude! Yes, I often get bored with the “ESC fans = gay men” focus that some ESC sites seem to loove such myths…that doesn’t mean I dislike gays, or think it should be a “traight contest” (Not contest or even can be “gay” og “straight” so both would sound just as wrong). Just making it clear that many male fans are straight too…and that there are also many female fans. As for rock songs….I am a fan of them yes. But so what? We all have… Read more »

@Charles: Can you insult me some more please? Your insults are just so convincing, I think one or two more and I will totally take you seriously. 😉 Yours sincerely, Racal, Il Volo fan (apparently), 10 years old, Bieber belover (apparently), off brained, time waster, and many more awful things. PS: Just a serious piece of advice, it’s really not healthy to be so aggressive and bitter, especially when you’re all alone in front of your laptop and your insults are directed at strangers you’ll never meet. Be nice with people, even with strangers, you’ll truly feel better. 😉 Lots… Read more »

Just ignore him, dear. It’s obvious that he is obsessed with finding a way to turn ESC into a straight-only and exclusively-rock-songs-by-exclusively-male-singers contest.

I have to admit that I was taken back by the photo of Piero. I am sure he didn’t have to show so much. These three want to appeal to the younger crowd but I thought it was through music. I am also sure many parents are having second thoughts about allowing their kids to follow Il Volo. Just saying. As for me I am old enough to focus exclusively on the beautiful music.

@Racal. For a non Il Di… ops sorry Il Volo fan … you reminded me of my 10 year old cousin not wanting to accept that her beloved Bieber is a douche bag … and for someone who finds nothing wrong with these 3 kids your brain must have been off by the time you decided to waste time with my comment … but if this is what makes your boat float … @fikri: You do sound far more entertaining when you let your down brain do the talking for you while your upper brain is off service … 🙂… Read more »

I love Il Volo and Piero especially, but think these photos are just far too stylised and photoshopped to be sexy, unlike the candid natural ones they post on their own social media accounts, which are always so much better. These magazines often have no idea about these things, so it’s a bit of a lost opportunity.

@khm, Charles: So a singer (or a band) who does a photo shoot is narcissistic now? I guess you guys must not like a lot of singers.

Charles, when exactly have they “cried to claim victory”? I actually remember a Facebook statement following Eurovision 2015 where they wrote that they were happy to have won the televote, but congratulated Mans for winning fair and square.

I’m not an Il Volo’s fan btw, actually the only thing I know of them is their ESC song, but I just don’t understand how they could cause so much anger and bitterness. 😉

It’s only a photoshoot for an Halloween edition of a “Rock and roll” magazine.My God… In the 2016 you get mad for a man shirtless,they perform in suit and tie and they are always kind with their fans.
In the magazine they had to impersonate “the bad boys” and they did it.That’s all.
I agree when you say that the fans are exaggerating but that isn’t their fault.

And people are still obsessed by these 3 spoiled-brat-kids who to this day cry like a river wanting to claim that 2015 victory just because god knows how many voted for them … and so what have they decided to do now? Getting almost naked to fed the fantasies of so many here … I wonder why didn’t they all 3 take all those clothes off? Anyway … their ego and fans obsessions walk hand in hand … God knows why.

Lol Davve are you aware that you know.. every man grows pubic hair? The only reason porn actors have to shave theirs is to make their buddy seem bigger and their behind more visable for camera shoots.. They arent; Ken dolls y’know.
