They landed. They conquered. I arrived in my LBD. They crooned and wooed their ways into our hearts. And took our breaths away. The real thing is always better live.
Yes, it's Il Divo.
Nothing I say would do justice to the incredible brevity of watching a live performance by one of the most talented and awe inspiring music group since. We weren't supposed to be taking any photographs or videoing the concert but I decided what the hell, since I was already there and it is Il Divo. And everybody else's cameras were flashing off the moment they got on stage. I would've liked my photos to come out like this.
Except that we were seated a bit too far from the stage so this was the best I could get away with without the ushers hounding me for sneaking a shot and vid or two.
The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, which is just next to KLCC wasn't as big as I had expected it to be but they did perform with a small live orchestra complete with energetic composer, grand pianist, a full set of drums, first-timer guitarist performing with the guys, and decked out stairway to heaven like stage with brilliant lighting.
I was actually hoping for something like this but I didn't mind.
They were amazing nonetheless. They could perform in the middle of the desert or on top of a glacier in their Armani suits and still look impeccably good.
I want to meet them in person and touch them one day!
The one and a half hours flew by so quickly that before I knew it they had sang almost 25 songs continuously without so much an intermission or break. It ended on a sweet and beautiful note with 'Somewhere' and the boys being adorned with garlands and gifted with single roses and presents from the rabid fans aching for more.
Alas all good things have to come to an end and they departed the stage with a standing ovation from the roaring audience no less. Please return to KL and I'd pay double next time to get those kick-ass seats right in front of the stage to bask in all their singing glory.
