He seemed tired. His performance for much of the
evening was so muted I thought there was something
wrong with the sound system. Song selection
disappointed too. He could have included some of his
more popular songs but didn’t. Finally came alive
towards the end of the concert when had some
competition from his amazing guest Heather Headley
who brought the house down with her performance

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.

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.

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.

I WILL NEVER WATCH ANOTHER PERFORMANCE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL!
+ 1. The concert, discounting the venue, was superb.
2. Mr. Bocelli responded to 3 audience standing ovation requests for encores.
- 1. It seems that the Hollywood Bowl is diligently working at driving guests away. In my case, with success.
2. Between songs very bright lights,
surrounding the arch of the stage, were directed into the eyes of the audience.
3. The sound system was marginal.
4. Not the fault of the venue but many of the audience were rude, constantly talking and singing along with the performance.
William from Denver, Colorado
Everything was overamplified. This is classical music! There is no amplification at the Metropolitan Opera House. Last night it was all loud and full of reverberation. The chorus was tinny. There was NO commentary and we had no idea what he was singing, except for some old standards. There were "guest stars." A classical soprano and a violinist were great, but the second woman singer was a Celine Dion wannabee who I thought was just dreadful. The images were well done, but often didn't match the music. I'm going to stick to the real opera house for awhile.
