SIGH........

My family got me tickets for the Christmas show. I was so excited. I've been a fan for years. The show started over an hour late and we later learned that Andrea was ill and could not sing. The show was rescheduled for February 21. His voice has been my favorite for years - I listen to his music endlessly, but his concert did not deliver much of him. He had different singers, some sang with him, some by themselves, dancers, orchestra, but Andrea singing solo didn't really happen that much. The show started late and went to intermission about 25 minutes in. The songs at the beginning were all opera songs, which I didn't know, and his guest were OK, but they weren't him. Some even sang very loud and drowned him out a bit. Near the end of the performance he finally sang "The Prayer" and it was beautiful. We need more like that Andrea. You do not need all the others in your show.

SO LITTLE BOCELLI

Commenting on the venue, I've seen most of the famous opera singers at Hartford's XL Center, and I think they do this type of concert very well. Good sound, visuals, etc. I was, however, a little disappointed in the Bocelli program. I paid $250 for a ticket very high up in the Center. I did have a decent view for that distance, but used my binoculars occasionally. The show featured too many that most of us didn't care to see, as others have reported at other venues. I did not feel exhilarated at the end. I really felt that something was missing. Other performers have sung and performed very well into their 70s (my favorite being Neil Diamond), so I think Bocelli has a lot left in him. He needs better management and musical direction. Then he'll be back. My thoughts are with him for good health and many more years of performing, if that's what he wants.

NEED HIM TO SING MORE

I always enjoy listening to Mr Bocelli. Have been to two of his shows ( I don’t call it a concert). Unfortunately it seems that more than half of the show was performed by Zaccaro, sopranos, violinist, daughter, and audience (we sang happy birthday to his wife). Distracting from performance was someone painting his portrait. Considering the expense involved attending his shows, I expected to hear him sing more. Disappointing

WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT

Andrea seemed annoyed and tired. Song selection was very disappointing. He has so many great songs. We were hoping to hear a few, but to our disappointment he sang only 2 we recognized. However, his voice was phenomenal. Conductor was covering him most of the time and we couldn't see him properly from the side of the auditorium. We left mid-way in to the second half.

HIGH EXPECTATIONS!

If you have been to other Bocelli concerts you have something to compare last nights performance to. He of course is always true to himself and never deviates what he does so I knew that would be the case last night. No problem there. But the production was a distraction rather than an enhancement. Blinding lights pointed directly at the audience were frequent and an annoyance. The guest performers were not very exciting. No Grobin, no Sherin showed up. The first standing ovation was given to a children's choir from Haiti. The second was when we heard our first popular song from Bocelli and that came towards the end of the show. That should tell you something. The first half of the show was opera. For opera lovers it was great I am sure, but for Bocelli lovers who want to hear the songs they know all the words to...not so much. His new song was a highlight. But all and all very disappointing for me.

TOO MUCH OPERA. NO SI

I was looking forward to this concert but came away disappointed. The ENTIRE first half was opera. Not what I came to hear (I heard this from many people). He only sang 1 song from his new album (I love this album.) . There were also far too many solo performances by other artists (who weren't even introduced). I thought Amapola, a beautiful love song, was overproduced and lost its charm. And much as I like Con Te Partiro and Nessum Dorma, they were predictable as encores and again, overdone.

NO WHAT I EXPECTED

It has been so long since I have seen Bocelli, he performed with Celine Dion and it blew my mind, one of those moments that move you so deeply you are about to shed tears. Not so this time, stage lights were pointing at the audience so half the time I'm blinded by them and have to look away, there was a hanging screen that projected his performance on the foreground of the backdrop and if flickered horribly, it also shook so much that made me dizzy, thank God it was pulled up for the second half of the show. His voice is Amazing but the sound was HORRIBLE he sounded muted, when a guest singer came onto the stage she used a different wireless microphone and you could tell the difference because she also sung a son with Andrea and she also sounded muted, what a shame!!!!! I know he can sing opera but I am not sure I would have paid what I paid for a floor ticket to hear him sing that, I am not an opera fan although I appreciated his voice. I am so disappointed that if I could I would ask for my money back.
