Grand Rapids Concert

Had just another incredible evening at the ATE concert. Was lucky enough to have a M&G with Josh. Came bearing gifts for Josh and the incredible Groband. Met up with Ruslan, Christian, Andre, And Dave at the busses after the show.

First Josh Groban Concert

From the concert: 
8/30 Boston, MA Tanglewood

Today is my first day as an official FOJB member! However, I have been a Josh Groban fan since 2004. My first Josh Groban concert was on August 29, 2005 - the Closer Tour (2004-2005). Funny story, though - Although it was nearly 11 years ago, I can still remember the experience. I was a freshman in high school and I got a call from my friend. Her mom had an extra ticket to the Josh Groban concert the next day. I was thrilled to see my friend and excited for the show. I knew Josh's music, but I don't think I was expecting much. So, the next day, myself, my friend, her mom (my piano teacher), and a nun….yes, a nun….piled in a car and headed from CT to Tanglewood. I can remember picnicking on the Tanglewood lawn and waiting for the show to begin.

It was actually b4 the concert I was wondering around where the josh crew parks when I caught josh hiding some tickets which I later found had my picture taken with him b4 concert

My first Josh Groban concert

First of all, I have wished for so long to attend a Josh Groban concert, and my wish finally came true on October 6, 2013! Oh my gosh, what a concert experience after seeing Josh in person on stage! I've to now put his concert at the top of my attended concerts, that I've gone to over the years. If this is at all possible, his baritone voice sounds even stronger in person then on his records. The whole production of his concert was spellbounding! His opening act, singer Judith Hill, was outstanding! I love how he interacted with the audience, and showed his very funny sense of humor. His musicians were outstanding! When he sang To Where You Are, it reminded me of my late parents. My Mom loved the song Vincent, so when he sang that song, the memory of my late Mom came to mind.

An Awe Inspiring Performance Every Time

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.

Best Concert Ever

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.

Perfect night and it was a long time coming...

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.

Soul Fulfilling

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.
