Italian singing sensations Il Volo have just announced the upcoming release of a new CD and DVD entitled Il Volo Takes Flight – Live From The Detroit Opera House. The DVD special, which was filmed during the group’s first North American tour, originally aired on PBS in Detroit this past December. Due to an overwhelming response, it’s now scheduled to air across the country as part of the March 2012 PBS Fundraising Drive.
Both the CD and DVD feature 15 live tracks, including Italian classics like “O Sole Mio,” “Un Amore Cosi Grande,” and Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile.” Most of the songs appear on the trio’s self-titled debut album, which reached #6 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart in the US and was certified platinum in Italy. The Take Flight DVD also features a bonus documentary with behind the scenes footage and interviews.
Il Volo Takes Flight – Live From The Detroit Opera House is out February 28th on Geffen Records and will be available for pre-order soon. For more on the group, visit their official website at www.ilvolomusic.com.
