Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone, and Ignazio Boschetto of the acclaimed Italian trio Il Volo chatted about their upcoming show at Radio City Music Hall.

Il Volo, which consists of consisting of baritone Gianluca Ginoble, and tenors Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto. The trio has seven albums out, and in 2019, they celebrated their 10th anniversary as a trio. They have sold over two million albums and amassed 220 million global streams, over 500 million views, and over one million followers on YouTube.

This forthcoming show at New York’s Radio City Music Hall will take place on Tuesday, September 27. It is a tribute to the late but great famous composer Ennio Morricone. Their album “Il Volo Sings Morricone” was made with support from the Morricone family and featured new lyrics written by his son, Andrea Morricone.

“The show is less than two months away, it is getting closer,” Ginoble admitted. “We are really happy to be back, it is one of the most prestigious theaters in the world. IT will be our third time playing there. I still remember when we played there the first time in 2016 when we paid tribute to The Three Tenors, and it was amazing.”

“We are finally bringing our music back there after 2.5 years due to the pandemic. We will have a new repertoire, the songs of Maestro Ennio Morricone, which are some of the most beautiful songs of our career,” he added.

“We are very excited, especially to be back in the USA,” exclaimed Ignazio Boschetto. “The audience exudes oxygen for us, and being on tour really makes us feel really good. We can’t wait to be back at Radio City since it is one of the most important concerts of the tour.”

“We flew to Sardinia to do the video for ‘The Ecstasy of Gold’,” Barone said. “We wanted to keep a spaghetti western mood to that video.”

On their favorite songs from the album, Barone said, “For us, all of the songs are the best. Personally, when I sing ‘Would He Even Know Me Now,’ it reminds me of the movie ‘Cinema Paradiso.’ That is one of my favorite movies, and it is so beautiful.”

If Ginoble were to have any superpower, he revealed that it would be to have “Piero’s voice,” joking about his fellow band-mate. Barone and Boschetto selected “time travel” and “flying” as their superpowers respectively.

Barone listed Celine Dion as his dream duet choice, while Ginoble selected Barbra Streisand and Michael Buble, and Boschetto picked Ed Sheeran as their dream duet partners.

Regarding their definition of success, Ginoble said, “Success is a part of our job but not the most important thing. It is something that comes after sacrifice and passion. That’s what makes us happy. We have to say thanks to our fans for allowing us to tour all over the world.”

“The most beautiful thing for any artist or person is to do what they love. Success is when you go on stage and you see people look at you and smile, and you make them happy,” Barone added.

For their New York fans, Boschetto concluded, “We can’t wait to be back. We will spend an Italian night in New York. Thank you for all of the support that they show us over the years. We are very grateful to the fans, and we will give them the night that they deserve and the night that they are expecting.”
