The Sept. 14 Il Volo concert at the Fox Theatre has been canceled.
The announcement cites “an unforeseen scheduling conflict” as the reason for the cancellation. There are no plans to reschedule the Atlanta date (apparently there are many scheduling conflicts in the boys’ future).
Il Volo – not to be confused with Il Divo – is the Italian trio of young men whose most recent album, “Il Volo…Takes Flight: Live from the Detroit Opera House,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard classical chart (the group’s name means “the flight” in English).
The threesome received a huge promotional push with their performance of the Italian standard “O Sole Mio” on a May 2011 appearance on “American Idol.”
Refunds are available at point of purchase; those purchased through Ticketmaster online or via phone will be automatically refunded.
