MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
Bocelli looked tired and annoyed. Poor selection of songs. He didn’t even acknowledged the audience! No thanks, no greetings.. so much waisted money.I felt sad and disappointed, I’m Italian and bragged so much about him. Some people looked at me and had shocked expressions in their faces
DAVID from Atlanta, Georgia
Infinite energy is the worst place EVER. Almost everyone was late due to a lack of parking coordination. After arrival they announce he was sick. He barely sang and then we waited HOURS to get out of the parking lot. EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE TO BE SO FRUSTRATED ALL NIGHT.

BASICALLY,ONLY HALF A SHOW.
I do not imagine many people signed up for two unknown singers, a flautist and some unknown dancers . Of course we got to hear the orchestra play the music from The Sound of Music, and he sang that Dean Martin favorite, Besame Mucho. At the end we are told he lost his voice three days ago. Did not find all of it. I would think most artists would have cancelled the show and refunded the tickets

FAR BELOW EXPECTATION S
This show failed to meet expectations ! I did not come to listen to a flautist or numerous soprano numbers , nor did I come to hear the Sound of Music or be distracted numerous times by dancers. Andrea kept leaving the stage for extended periods of time and made no effort to show any warmth to the audience. His song selections left a lot to be desired; give us the selections from his recent PBS show from Italy. The backdrop videos and such were amateurish at best. I'll stick to CDs and not waste money on live performances. With the exception of his last two songs, his voice was not quite there; perhaps he should have canceled this date altogether and we wouldn't have wasted our money.

DISAPPOINTED AND CHEATED
I agree with the earlier poster: this was only half of a show. I paid nearly $800 for two tickets and Bocelli sang very little. Instead my wife and I were entertained by our local Carolina orchestra (playing Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh!), a flutist (three songs!), a season 10 American Idol loser, and very little Andrea Bocelli. He was off the stage more than on the stage. If he didn't feel well due to his earlier laryngitis, I would have preferred a cancellation. We enjoyed the solos he did sing, but there were very few. The flute player was on stage longer than Andrea. Very disappointed.

POOR PERFORMANCE IN TAMPA
After driving 3 hours and paying $250 per ticket, it was disappointing. Poor choice of songs and too many guests that we really didn't care about. His voice finally got warmed up in the middle of the performance but he only sang a total of 10 songs (including 2 encores). And an orchestra that played Sound of Music...REALLY? That's what I paid for? Awful lighting that glared and underwhelming production. His voice is still beautiful and would have loved to hear more of it rather than the guest performances. Would have loved to heard his love songs (IT WAS VALENTINE'S NIGHT) or his more contemporary songs.

LISTEN TO ANDREA BOCELLI'S CDS-SAVE YOUR $$
I booked Andrea Bocelli's tickets over 6 months in advance as a surprise to my husband and wasted the few grand spent (no Pavarotti). The crowd will not be greeted or thanked (we should be so honored to watch him); however, Bocelli will speak to the crowd to promote his son. This after singing stereotypical Italian songs for almost the entire show and hardly any of his hits or new songs from his newly released album. Bocelli's voice will never sound the same again, after being chilled by his cold-hearted performance. Clearly, Bocelli's current wife knows how to make him look warm with the videos created that surround his family and that's where it ends. Bocelli never even thanked the orchestra or the conductor who helped him and no intro to the performers. I truly wasted our time and $$. Bocelli is nothing w/out David Foster on the stage, they underestimated the need for this, & Bocelli's team needs to correct him. Treat a crowd the way you would treat family, Bocelli! NEVER AGAIN!
