How does it feel to per­form on the same grounds that the Rat Pack played 50 years ago?

They were all huge su­per­stars, but the sum was still greater than its parts, and that’s how we feel. We all had var­i­ous ca­reers and then we got into a room and some­thing mag­i­cal hap­pened. There is no hold­ing a can­dle to Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin and Frank Si­na­tra. But we do have a guy who has a big ol’ curl in the mid­dle of his fore­head: Car­los and Dean Martin have a sim­i­lar look go­ing on! (Laughs)

Is there any­thing you want to ex­pe­ri­ence while you’re in town?

I like to play craps! That’s kind of win some, lose some. Urs would want to catch a show or two. But we’re go­ing to be per­form­ing every evening so the chal­lenge will be find­ing stuff in the day­time, and Car­los is just not a day­time per­son.

What makes this mini- res­i­dency at the Vene­tian unique?

Th is will be the first time we’ve had a res­i­dency any­where. I think that we’re go­ing to con­nect more with the au­di­ence [than usual], be­cause some­times when you’re in a dif­fer­ent city every day, speak­ing a dif­fer­ent lan­guage every day, there’s only a cer­tain amount you can let them in. What I can say is that peo­ple are go­ing to walk away and say, “Why didn’t th­ese guys come to Ve­gas sooner?” Il Divo - Th is is Your Night: Live in Las Ve­gas, Sept. 20-30, vene­tian.com – Spencer Lu­b­itz

Il Divo has amassed 160 gold and plat­inum awards in 33 coun­tries with 30 mil­lion al­bum sales, and can sing to us any­time.
