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.

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 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.

+ 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.

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.

Bocelli is a great singer and though he did his best to be gracious to the audience by singing generously for the encore he didn't choose his best body of work. He looked gaunt and thin. Besides, the wonderful San Francisco Symphony, and the soprano singer (forgot her name) the other parts of the concert were very out of place and plain cheap. I could care less for the dance numbers at the corner of the stage, the Italian pop singer was promotional at its best, the violinist was thrilling but not befitting to be part of the show. The videos and the lighting system were primitive to the point of being repulsive. The stage designers had no taste or skills. I felt that the organizers had to cater to the widest audience to collect as much money as possible. The blinding dollar signs in the heads of the show organizers blinded the show and its only purpose-to give us Bocelli and Bocelli alone. If senjor Bocelli chooses to come to san Francisco again, let his venue be the Davis Symphony Hall or San Francisco Opera. I think the singer of his statue doesn't need to compare himself with Arianna Grande or Golden Gate Warriors.

The good …..his magnificent God given voice! I enjoyed the dancers and all of the beautiful women who sang & played violin. Desperately wish he had sung more songs we were familiar with. We paid a lot of money, and his talent is worth every penny....but nothing is as satisfying as your heart being able to sing along with a song recognized. The "bad" was a level of audience that came in torn jeans, consuming burgers and beer, and using cell phones that they engaged with all night. This was NOT a rockets game. Low class....they were spoken to at intermission but they tended to ignore all around them. The "ugly" was a line wrapped around the Toyota center an hour before scheduled start time. Caused late start. Glad it was not raining! Then once in, they would not honor screen shot of email ticket That should be made clear when buying, since the line was at a standstill while folks tried to remedy that issue. Possibly a venue issue, but needs to be fixed. Also, screens hard to see.
