Please note the guidelines for the posting of photos.We are asking that you limit the number of pictures you post in each thread to 30 pictures. This will make it easier for people to scroll through the threads, plus those with slow connections will surely appreciate it, too. Any pictures over the allotted number will be deleted. So, choose carefully!
Please can we ask that you don't quote pictures (however lovely they are and however tempting!), as some people on dial-up are having problems with the pages loading and every little bit helps! From now on we are going to have to be pretty strict on this. Sorry.
If you wish to share more of your pictures, you can always post a link to the site where you have them posted (ie photobucket, etc.).
Most of all........ENJOY!!!!!
** May we also bring to your attention the directive we have received from Sony/forum management. More information can be found HERE, but we must remind everyone that downloadable links to video or audio recordings of any part of the concerts are not permitted on the forum, as file sharing of copyright material is illegal. **

It began when David was introducing Bridge over Troubled Water and he said it was about friends leaning on one another, and Urs literally leaned on David and took him completely by surprise. David said something like, “Welcome to the Il Divo comedy show.” The giggling started at that point, I think, and rarely stopped afterwards.
Tonight when Urs was trying to “warm us up” as we sat shivering in our seats, he had a special word for the two ladies near me in skimpy T-shirts and “gorgeoURS” slogans. I’ll let them identify themselves to you!
“I keep looking at these two ladies,” he said (to their huge delight, of course, and all of us around them). “You must be so cold. Please don’t feel you have to sit there like that all night. Feel free to put on a jacket…”
David’s mic occasionally made some very peculiar sounds which made both Seb and Carlos completely crack up, and at one point only Urs kept one of the songs going at all.
During ETILAY someone threw some flowers up onto the stage which were passed from divo to divo, and Urs actually sang his line (very sexily) TO Carlos. Hilarious.
When it came time for David to close the show by introducing My Way he said he couldn’t, because they didn’t want to go home. Needless to say, we didn’t either. He handed on the duty to Carlos, and I can’t remember whether it was David or Carlos who said, "I know - let’s start the whole show again.” And from the shadows we heard a lovely deep voice as Urs sang Carlito’s opening line from Somewhere. “Well, you said we were starting again…” he explained.
A very special moment for me came when Seb was introducing ETILAY, and saying how much the guys loved their fans. He said that Urs, their computer, knew all the fans’ names. And he put Urs on the spot by asking him to name some in the front row. Which he did! I’ll let them tell you about that!
Then he pointed at me and said, “And there’s the Reverend.” And I wasn't even in "uniform"! I think I died and… er… went to heaven at that point. I’m certainly sitting up on clouds at the moment. At least nine of them. How will I be able to sleep tonight? Do I care?
But I’d better try, as I’ve got packing to do in the morning and a flight to catch, but I just wanted to let you all know that it was one heck of a concert. Camera police were off-duty, so there will be plenty of pics and videos coming to you from clever people… I’ve already seen evidence of some fantastic ones, so I know we’re in for some classics.
I nearly didn’t make it here because I was pretty poorly a few days ago, but I’m so grateful for the chance to see these two concerts. No wonder we love these guys! And meeting up with some wonderful people is all part of the experience, friends old and new. Thank you to everyone who has made the last few days so special.
Love to all,
Mis Bärli. Liäbi uf dä erschti Blikk ... oder Blinzli. (My dear little Swiss bear. Love at first sight ... or blinky ! )

Love to all,
Thank you so much for telling us how the second concert was. It sounds was funnier and relax than the first one
A propos du programme de chansons, chantées et qu'avez-vous pensé? D'autres avaient envie de chanter ou convenu à vos attentes?
(Talking about the lyrics proogramme, they were according to you expected? did you like which ones were performed?)
Espero que así haya sido y disfrutaras muchísimo este concierto tan esperado, casi desde principio de año, y que tuvieras la oportunidad de asistir. Ya ves que no todas podemos ir, ni siquiera en nuestros propios paises, por muchas veces que los Chicos hayan venido
(I hope so and had enjoyed so much this very expecting performance, since the begining of the year, and had chance to attend. You know, not all of us could attend to any concert,neither in our own countries, although the Boys had come many times)
Kommen Die wieder sicher nach Suffolk und in die Realität zurück, nachdem die Begeisterung, Spannung und zählte die Minuten.
Als wir in Mexiko sagen: "Es gibt keine Zeit oder Frist nicht erfüllt ist, dass expires"
(Come back to Suffolk safely and return to daily reality, without counting months, days and minutes. As we say in Mexico " There is not time which didn´t fullfill nor period which didn´t finish")
Saludos desde México DF y seguimos escribiéndonos
(Greetings from Mexico DF and keep writing)

It's so great to read time after time this year of the fun the guys are having during their performances. It may have been a long time for us during the last two years but it sure is worth the wait. I can't wait to see them in person next year.
Heather, sleep well and I hope you are still on Cloud 9 when you wake up in the morning.
I will be waiting patiently (hahaha) for the pics and vids you mentioned.
The car may change but the License plate stays the same!!

I really do like the more 'light-hearted' banter I have read about during the concerts... and the more casual photos on the website. I can hardly wait until they come to the States. I am already saving up for several meet & greets. woo whooo!
Thanks to all of the ladies who are sharing the details of their concert evenings with us. It has been a real joy to live vicariously through your experiences! You all are wonderful!
Thanks to fanfromoz for my siggie!
