He was incapacitated but feels there was too much scare mongering?

Several 100 thousand dead people would like a word with him.

"We all had a fever -- though thankfully not high ones -- with sneezing and coughing," Bocelli said.

Doesn't sound like incapacitated. Just saying.

Seems for him the bigger problem was having to cancel his concerts.

He was solo when he gave his concert. Nobody else was around him, the video crew were quite a distance away. The fact that he gave his concert even while sick shows some generosity on his part, just like so many other musicians who weren't sick.

Kudos to you Andrea for toughing it out in the name of entertainment and stay well!

I remember when there was an article on JT about Madonna saying she probably had it too. She was called an attention seeker.

That's because she is one. Can anyone remember anything she's done musically or even cares to? She's inspired all the untalented manufactured pop tart garbage that pollutes the media today - and that ain't a positive influence! Everybody talks about her stupid provocative activities, music means zero to her. Lip-synching isn't performing either!

Andrea was ill and he performed solo for other people's benefit. He is not an attention-seeker, he's an artist. He went out of his way in the name of entertainment and he took precautions too, and for that he is to be commended.

And furthermore he is noted as a 'popera' artist which means that he WORKS - not lip-synch, not strike stupid poses to get attention, not live a sensational life for the media. He just is what he is. Andrea is Andrea - popera star, entertainer, human being. That's all.
