Good Morning everyone and please accept my apologies for the late report. I’m still floating on the special cloud 9 created exclusively by Il Divo from the concert. While I saw them in Dublin, I guess I should be used to it, but it’s still a warm and cozy feeling each time I see them, regardless of the venue. The feelings were a mix of excitement and calm, at seeing them, feeling the songs wrap around me once again as they did before. Sitting in the inner circle, it did bring me closer to see the enormous effort they put into their music. To watch each face express the emotion of each of the words that were nested deep inside them to produce the bliss we have come to know and love was amazing. Their voices, their bodies, in tune with each note as much as each other. Their eyes gleamed with passion as they watched the packed arena respond with breathless anticipation, cheers, and more standing ovations that I could count.

As I sat there, forum Sisters on either side, others near, I again closed my eyes, letting the music wash over me as I called upon my forum family and friends to join me once again for this concert. I felt each of you come, as my mind moved from one to the other, welcoming you to this special place. As the blue lights faded to a warm glow, four handsome figures appeared on stage. Again, I watched them, felt them reach deep inside with that first unified breath taken and sensed the crowd taking that deep breath with them as they began to weave their magic. None of us dared breathe again until Il Divo did. The sound of their voices engaged each one of the more than 8,000 attending this first US concert since 2006 as if each person was hearing this concert as an audience of one. Each of us could feel the exquisite presence of them wrap around us as the warmest of embraces.

The passion expressed by Carlos, David, Sebastien and Urs was stunning. I had to force my jaw off of the floor many times during the night as I gazed at them. Remembering to breathe was a completely different matter, as they continued to perform. I could also tell by their faces, especially David’s that they were in tune with the audience, glad to be performing to this quiet but enthusiastic crowd. The eager faces beaming back at them were almost as warm and inviting as the guys. I could see each one lovingly receive it and return the welcome ten fold as they sang, building on each one, again and again.

When it came time for the break, I don’t think many of the audience left their seat, but I did. I needed a moment outside, in the cool evening air to look to the sky, find their star and whisper a wish of thanks that I couldn’t say to the guys themselves. - A thanks for each of the four guys and their amazing talent, for my forum family, and for the nice weather that seemed to come as the Divos arrived.

I took my seat again to listen, feel, the warmth and magic of Il Divo that remained in each of us. As they continued, the excitement seemed to come in huge waves, as each of us was anticipating PQTME and LVSA. As each started, the guys didn’t need to encourage the crowd’s participation, we were ready, eager and waiting. The smile on each face reflected that they saw and felt us with them as active players. I could hear the gasps from the ladies during LVSA as each Divo moved with the music of LVSA, giving us all a taste of what they could do beyond singing. I hope my face wasn’t too red as I watched my favorite Divo rock it – OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!

Before I knew it, the final songs came. Seb appeared in the crowded inner circle and luckily, the guards were nice. They let the crowd come forward to shake hands with the guys. It took both songs for them to make their way around to me, but I was blessed that evening with being able to shake hands with all four of them. I didn’t get my own blinky-wink from Urs, but I did get a nice wave and wink from Carlos as he came close to me. So cutie daughter, I hope you know that was for you.

Gentlemen, thank you for a fantastic evening, forum Sisters and niece, it wouldn’t have been the same without you there, and forum family kept safely in my heart always, thank you for joining me that evening. Another lifetime of memories I will never forget. MWAH!

Sandie

Good afternoon everybody. This was my first concert and the first time I've every written a report. So, please bear with me, I'm still on a Divo high. The concert started about 8 PM and the atmosphere in the arena was electrifying. From the moment the lights were dimmed and Carlos, David, Sebastien and Urs appeared and started to sing Somewhere I was mesmerized. To say the least I was swept away on a cloud of pure joy by their magnificent voices. I was engulfed in pure magic. And by the look on David's face and in his eyes, he was very proud. Next La Promessa was beautiful. That's about the only order I remember them in. When they sang Adagio the voices were so powerful and the expression on their faces as they sang was to say the least powerful. When it was over they received a standing ovation that was nothing short of 4-5 minutes. Song after song was given a standing ovation. When they announced LVSA, the crowd was up on their feet at the first note. All to soon it was time for the ending when Sebastien came through the crowd sing Amazing Grace I got to shake his hand and a big smile. I went to the small stage and when it came time to do The Impossible Dream I got to shake Davids hand and he gave me a huge smile. I was patiently waiting to shake Urs's hand and Carlos. Urs has a tender, but rough hand and as for Carlos I got a very firm grip and a big smile and he said hello darlin. He is a flirt, buit an enjoyable one. All to soon they said Good Night and it was over. Thank You Carlos, David, Sebastien and Urs for making this a night I will always remember.

Well I think it's my turn to make report on the concert, as you know this was my first concert and I'm very sure not the last one, how can explain in words all these feelings, these guys gave the best night of my life ....a night I never forget....when the concert started I was in shock...that was the moment that I have been waiting for so long
My heart almost go out of my body when I heard the powerful voices in Adagio and their faces when the public was clapping and clapping for more than 5 mins....they seemed very very proud to be there especially David in some point he said to the audience that all that they do is for us....omg this man is amazing (diva talking ) and i think Urs say he is very happy to be in DC because of the amazing audience. i cant remeber the exactly order of the songs but all of them were perfect, RAM, adagio, PQTME, Etilay, She, impossible dream , when they sang mama i almost cried
thank you david, irs, carlos and sebastien one more time for this amazing night and thanks mom Lg, auntie sandie and my beatiful sweet friend nunnie for sharing this experience with me thank you so much love ya girls this was not be the same without you
