Italian singing sensations Il Volo soar in their first PBS Special “Il Volo Takes Flight” as well as on their latest CD and DVD, Il Volo Takes Flight – Live From The Detroit Opera House, which was released Feb. 28th on Geffen Records. Il Volo will head out on a North American headline tour this summer. The Live Nation promoted tour kicks off August 12th in Minneapolis, MN at the Orpheum Theatre (see below for complete itinerary or visit LiveNation.com/IlVolo)and includes a stop at the Bank of America Pavilion in Boston, MA on Saturday, September 8.
“Il Volo is extremely talented. It’s a wonderful pleasure to introduce another new music sensation like these three, young Italian tenors to American audiences through PBS,” said Joe Campbell, Vice President of Fundraising Programming at PBS.

Il Volo Takes Flight – Live From the Detroit Opera House was filmed last year while the group was on their first North American concert tour and captures the genuine excitement of their live performance, the stunning crowd reaction and the many standing ovations the group has received in every city they have performed. The show includes Italian classics such as “O Sole Mio” and “Un Amore Cosi Grande” as well as a magnificent version of the classic Charlie Chaplin song “Smile.” The Live DVD includes a bonus documentary.
With rave reviews the CD, DVD and PBS broadcast of “Il Volo Takes Flight” was one of the most highly anticipated releases of the new year. The NY Daily News glowed, “If you’ve never heard them sing ‘O Sole Mio’ or other classics in their rep, then be prepared to be blown away.”
Piero Barone 18, Ignazio Borschetto 17 and Gianuca Ginoble 16, also dubbed The Teenage Tenors, exploded onto the U.S. music scene and into the hearts of U.S. fans following their show stopping appearance on American Idol last year.

Already certified platinum in their homeland, the boys also appeared on major U.S. TV shows including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Today Show, Good Morning America, The Talk, Ellen, Rachael Ray and a surprise performance on the final episode of the HBO series Entourage.
