Beiteddine Festival - IL DIVO Concert

It has more than 3  years that I havent been to The Shouf ( Mount Lebanon) and yesterday was a chance for me to go there, since I was attending the Il Divo Concert in the Beiteddine Festival 2010.

I was really amazed how the clean  road was from Damour all the way to Baakline ,where the buses took us to the Beiteddine Palace.
Wiki Stop : Beiteddine Palace

The palace was built by emir Bashir Shihab II in the period between 1788 and 1818. It was the emir's residence until 1840. Afterwards the building was used by the Ottoman authorities as the government residence. Later, under the French Mandate following World War I, it was used for local administrative purposes. The General Directorate of Antiquities restored the palace after it was declared a historic monument in 1934. After independence in 1943, the palace became the summer residence of the president of republic.

The Event was very organized , and with the concert was an exhibition of ( Al Jameel Award ) and the Photographic Gallery of the 25 years old Beiteddine Festival.

The IL DIVO Concert was a dream for all ladies and the performance was more than great . Four  Magnificent voices in such a magical Palace was enough to make that night amazing

Here are some Pictures of the event.

my sweet sebastien....where is your hair...it is the wood....a #1...you haven't joined up have you????..

wonderful to see IL DIVO in public...they should be renamed the invisbles they have become so reclusive...they seem to perform in countries that are obscure...if IL DIVO want to stay on top with their music and their fab concert tours they need to be in the public eye....6 years and still unknown which is a shame....bad managment...bad PR...IL DIVO will have an up hill struggle to get the next album in the charts...20 forum members won't get the album to #1!!!!!

IL DIVO can't pop up after such an absence and expect a sold out tour and #1 album...remember the fans put you where you are... to ignore them is a cheek!!!!!!!!

if the tour starts in December .....compared to other concerts IL DIVO do perform for the shortest of times....never ever at any of the many concerts I have attended have IL DIVO never performed an encore!...they sure short change their fans!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for the lovely post and pictures. It is magnificent that Il Divo is reaching new audiences and opening into new countries than where they have performed before. What an awesome venue! I thank you for sharing your photos.

Looking forward to their new album this year.

Claudia said...

thanks so much for your wonderful story and picss, as you say Il Divo are four magnificent voices; they are awesome, amazing and your voices sublime.

Pam Francis said...

Thank you so much fpr the pics it was so good to see them still on top form as for their next cd not hitting the charts Oh Ye of Little Faith this is IL DIVO your talking about
Dont think you know a lot about these fab guys as they were performing to sell out concerts in Dec 209 and released a DVD AND CD
In between recording their new CD they have also performed in another Arabic state which may seem obscure to you but to the guys they are doing as promised reaching out to all nations who wish to access their music and how many other top artists do you see in the public eye 24/7 they need their rest just as we do who dont perform to the high standard that they constantly put into all performances
Thank you IL DIVO for the constant pleasure and joy you give to all your fans I for one will be in line when that new CD appears enjoy what time is given for you to rest as we none of us want you to burn yourselves out your music is too beautiful for that

krazykitty said...

don't need knowledge dear...who hasn't heard of Beirut?
Beit Eddine, may not be obscure if you live in Lebanon or that part of the world to the rest of us it is obscure….
Beirut not on my top ten cities I ever wanted to visit!!!!

Il Divo, just as any other performers need time off after a gruling concert schedule. The need to find new sonds and get into the studio. give them a break.

If you missed their encores, then you left their concert early. When the guys perform Amazing Grace and Impossible Dream, those are their encore songs. If you saw them durring the 2009 tour they wore very formal black tux (tails) for the encores.

Krazykitty I'm not sure what Il Divo concerts you have been to but the last tour they performed for 2 hours & they did do an encore, The Impossible Dream being one of the songs, also they were shaking fans hands signing autographs & generally giving as much time as possible for as many fans as possible at the same time as singing as they walked along the walkways. The always acknowledge fans that they have seen before, what else can we ask for! I'm sure the album will do well as usual. I've been following since the 2006 tour & have never been disappointed.

Thank you so so much for posting the notes and pictures about Il Divo Concert. It was almost impossible for latinamerican people to go to Lebanon and the only way to realize how the perfonmance was is through your news.

Greetings

LINDOS, MARAVILHOSOS COMO SEMPRE, DA SEMPRE UMA SAUDADE IMENSA DO SHOW QUE FIZERAM EM SÃO PAULO.
PARECE QUE FOI UM SONHO, E EU NÃO QUERIA MAIS ACORDAR.
VE-LOS DE NOVO CANTANDO É TER A SENSAÇÃO DE QUE TUDO VAI SER MELHOR AGORA.
IL DIVO, AMO VOCES.

BEIJOS, OBRIGADA PELAS FOTOS,

DIVA CIMARA
