The powerhouse group makes the announcement fresh off winning their first Billboard Latin Music Award for “Latin Pop Albums – Artist of the Year, Duo or Group,” with nominations both this year and in 2013. The group will bring to American audiences their best live performances of pop and traditional songs in English, Italian and Spanish, such as their specialized renditions of “Surrender,” “Little Things,” “Angel,” “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and “Maria,” to name a few.
The group released three albums last year on Interscope Records – WE ARE LOVE, IL VOLO’S WE ARE LOVE: LIVE FROM THE FILMORE MIAMI BEACH AT JACKIE GLEASON THEATER and BUON NATALE: THE CHRISTMAS ALBUM, which hit iTunes’ Top 10 album of the season. The group was introduced to America with theirself-titled debut album in April 2011, creating big numbers as it debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and then went on to sell more than one million copies worldwide. IL VOLO wowed television audiences when they performed “O Sole Mio” as special guest performers on “American Idol,” and they guest starred in the final episode of HBO’s “Entourage.” More recently the group performed at the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards. IL VOLO has released two PBS Specials, and toured with the legendary Barbara Streisand, appearing with her on two of her own PBS specials.
