DISAPPOINTED!

I was super excited about the Orlando concert honestly, we were hoping to hear his love songs with guitar and piano, (Beasemo Mucho, Kisas or Perfiedia). It was mostly opera songs which I found it boring. We didn't know about the contents of course. The seats we paid $400 each were very uncomfortable in the Amway arena. The cheaper seats were bigger and looked more comfortable. I was able to see only half of the stage. I will still enjoy his songs on YouTube but I was hoping to hear those songs in live performance. Unfortunately it didn't happen.

MAGNIFICENT

I was expecting a great concert but there are no words to express the incredible performances by Andrea Bocelli, his choir and orchestra, the other amazing singers and dancers and of course the big surprise, his breathtakingly handsome son, Matteo. I have an eclectic taste for music and have been to many concerts but this one has left indelible footprints in my heart. Best ever!!! Not a cheap ticket but worth much more than I paid. A not-to-miss evening of excellence.

WHAT I LEARNED AT THE MET

I saw Andrea Bocelli at the Metropolitan Opera House on 2/10/19 and was disappointed. His entire show, including the encores, were arias that most of the audience didn't know. I admit that this is the way the concert was advertised but I assumed that he would do at least one of his popular songs. Most of the people I spoke to were also disappointed and it is telling that he didn't get a standing ovation from the whole audience at the end of the concert. If you are thinking of seeing him in the future take the following into account: At the Met there are no microphones and while he has a great voice, he really needs some amplification. The opera singers on the program came across much better for the guy in the $200 balcony seats. No large screen TVs at the Met so you couldn't see him too well. Lastly, no microphone means no speaking - he never said a word to the audience during the concert. Next time I'll go to a stadium when he's doing his greatest hits.

SHMALTZ KITSCH AND VIRTUOSITY

Attennded the Bocelli Valentines concert in Miami last night and was transported to the highest highs and lowest lows. How can you surround a virtuosic performer with the most embarrassing and debasing choice of film montage, amateur dance performances and lighting design appropriate for a sporting event? Andrea Bocelli at 60 still sings beautifully in tune with wonderfully sustained tones and a gravitas of a Pavorati or Domingo, yet he has surrounded himself with an organization that only wishes to present him to a sports level audience only hungry for his greatest hits and supreme kitsch. Andrea please preserve your hard earned dignity and lose whoever conceived your abysmal set design and overall tour concept. For my 94 year old father it was a concert of a lifetime, please make it worthy of your life’s work and not a caricature of a some vaudevillian off off Broadway charade.

SO DISAPPOINTING

2/17/19...the met...nyc.... i’ve waited years to see Bocelli....Ended up heartbroken. The met is a place for opera and I get that… But there needed to be amplification to hear his voice…It was hard enough to hear him when he was singing solo… But if the orchestra even tried to play a hair louder he was totally lost… to add to it he did not sing one song that anyone was familiar with… And I think that would’ve been OK if the focus had been more on him instead of the other performers…For anyone who loves his music I suggest downloading his music or buying a CD… You’ll be way happier.

VANCOUVER

Brilliant performance and especially when he sang with his sonMatteo. They always leave Time to say ?Goodbye until the very end so for the person that commented they left well before that you missed some of the best songs. Loved the backdrops and the interaction with the violinist and dancers. This was the second concert I have seen with Bocelli in Vancouver and this was the best. This time he spoke to the audience about his sons which everyone loved

WHY THESE NEGATIVE REVIEWS?

Well Andrea Bocelli wasn't mine and my husband's first choice of concert, we took my 89 year old mom-in-law as he is one of her favorite singers and it was on her bucket list to do.. and wow! We LOVED it!! More used to rock concerts (though we are in our 50's now) No we didn't necessarily know all of the songs - but isn't that entertainment is all about? An absolutely awesome concert, and though we were a little lost in the first half, we very much appreciated the culture of Italian Opera! Just couldn't get enough at the end of the show. I say pphtptphltltltlt!! to all the negative reviews here, Andrea looked tired?? give me a break, it was an amazing performance!! And the extra guests just enhanced the experience!! Bravo Matteo!
