Italian Opera group IL Volo release their 3rd studio album ‘Grande Amore’ on 27th May, followed by a special one-off performance at the London Palladium in June 2016.
You may remember IL Volo for their grand final performance at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest but their story didn’t begin there.
Discovered by manager Michele Torpedine (Andrea Bocelli) in 2009 after winning a major televised singing contest, the 3 young Italian men – Piero Barone (tenor), Ignazio Boschetto (tenor) and Gianluca Ginoble (baritone) – landed a worldwide recording deal with Interscope Records/Universal Music Group.
2010 saw the trio release their self-titled album in Italy, where it was certified platinum, but its worldwide release saw the album peak at No.6 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
IL Volo then went on to win a Latin Grammy® for ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Pop Album by a Duo or Group’.
Now, the powerhouse operatic pop trio will perform a special one off show at the iconic London Palladium on 3rd June as part of their 50-date world tour.
The tour coincides with the release of their third studio album ‘Grande Amore’ on 27th May – a collection of Italian love songs and standards – with the tour ending on 29th June in Madrid where they’ll perform a special tribute to Placido Domingo.
