Excellent concert. Josh Groban is so talented and he never disappoints. The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia was wonderful, as well as the Groband and the East Coast Inspirational Singers, as always. It was a bit hot (about 90) but not too bad. It was just great. Can't wait until the next one. The Josh Groban "baseball cards" which the Mann Center handed out after the show were a great touch except on the stats on the back of the card, they renamed his last album "All The Echoes" instead of "All That Echoes." I did notify the Mann, but I imagine Josh would probably just make a joke out of it anyway.
I was given the gift of a ticket to my idol, role model, and hero, Josh Groban's conert in Green Bay from my grandmother as a birthday present, and to this day I still think that it was the best gift ever. Even though I was WAY UP in the nosebleeds of the Resch Center, the intro that Josh did, was... beyond words. With him coming up from beneath the stage on the word "Loved" from his song, "You are Loved (Don't Give Up)" started the concert so well that I was literally just in another world for the remainder.
I went to Josh's show Aug. 29th at Mohegan Sun Arena with my friend Liz (who turned out to be the most perfect Josh concert buddy EVER) and I could not have asked for a better night. :) Before I even left my house, I got myself all ready, got my red dress on and my fishnets and I actually decided to Instagram a picture of my legs in the fishnets before I headed out the door. Guess what happened...JOSH RETWEETED IT and it ended up with something like 57 favorites and 9 retweets! Needless to say, I was very glad he liked it. ;) So I didn't even leave my house yet and already I'm all smiling and my heart is all aflutter.

Section 109 row J seat 13-14 (ended up in seats 11-12) no matter where we were it was an incredible experience because it was my first Josh Groban concert. But this night, I had the privilege to sit next to an 80+yr old recent widow who was present just to hear "You Lift Me Up" so she could sing it to her belated husband. As the fist notes played of the song, I touched her arm and told her this was what she was waiting for. Her eyes welled up with tears and she clasped her hands almost in prayer. As the song built up, she cried and sang and cried some more. When the song ended, I was in tears just watching her; elated yet sad at the same time. I realized that her dream was fulfilled and that she could go home knowing she was in the presence of her husband.
Josh sounds better every time we see him. I think the songs that he sings in Italian, Spanish and Portugese really show how talented he is. It was great to hear some of the songs we haven't heard in a while (Alle Luce, Per Te, Voce Existe, Caruso). He did a great job singing "Play Me." It seemed like it was over so fast! What a wonderful voice! I can't wait until the next CD is released!
So blessed to have seen Josh Groban several times now, but each time is a new adventure, a new set of memories , new encounters and a sensory overload I don't want to recover from. This was my third time seeing Josh at Wolf trap, and if ever you have the chance to see him there you simply must. The beautiful rich finish of the oak stadium blends into the thickness of the lush green woods that surround the Filene Center. The smell of delicious food teases your nose as the crisp night air kisses your skin.As you take it all in you also get to experience the unique opportunity of mingling with some of the most amazing fans in the world.
