BOCELLI WAS AMAZING, THE VENUE ABHORRENT
Andrea Bocelli was incredible in Denver. Unfortunately, I feel like we - yes correct we as those who attended - need to apologize to Mr. Bocelli for the venue, Ball Arena. The ballpark franks flowed, along with the popcorn wafting through the smoke in the lights. Beer can popped and people were way more than fashionably late, as exemplified by many attendees' use of phone flashlights illuminating the arena as much as their voices yell… "Here are our seats!" Constant conversation took place in an effort to be heard over Mr. Bocelli's voice, displaying the fact no one can ever overpower his voice. Ballcaps, sweatshirts and flannel flowed freely. Having a world-class event such as this at Ball Arena is a huge mistake. The arena is perfect for hockey games, basketball games and whatever other sporting games that want to be there. Not for the hosting of a talent that has performed for world leaders in some of the finest venues in the world. Andrea Bocelli deserves better than Ball.

Who paid a lot to hear and see Andrea BOCELLI, not his children or other less talented singers. We had hoped for some of his most famous songs and were sorely disappointed in his selections. His voice is truly magnificent, but we felt short changed overall.
Sue Rice from Portland, Oregon
Have waited for years to see and hear Bocelli. Felt the song selection was weak. Kept waiting for the more popular favorites. His duet with his son was priceless. Could have heard one more. His daughter was adorable. His voice of course was outstanding. The back drop scenes were beautiful. Nothing he could do about the rude crowd who arrived late and had to disrupt seated patrons. At the appointed time to begin, arena was half full. 30 minutes later , when concert actually started, it was filling up and continued to fill with lights off. Then you had the people that had to get more wine and beer. Times I thought I was at a Blazer game and I had splurged on the tickets. Still pleased I saw him in person.

LACK OF CONSIDERATION
I attended the Boston concert and at song break intervals alarmingly bright and blinding spotlights were turned on the audience. I don’t know who thought that was a good idea. It wasn’t. It was migraine inducing.

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.

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.
Still a fan despite the concert from Los Angeles, California
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.
