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.
In the Round Houston November 12, 2013
Finally saw Josh in his In The Round Tour. It was a quick trip but I did get front row seats and saw it with the lady with the Josh Groban tatoo on her arm - Sunshine. He didn't come out to great us in the shivering cold. :(
I flew out there from LA that morning, took public transportation, ate dinner with a couple of close friends who work at Johnson Space Center, and then headed to the show! Great front row seats, and then had a flight 1st thing the next morning and straight to work. It was a good day off.
My husband Clarke and I are going to the Philly Concert on August 27th! I totally can't wait!!! It will be AWESOME!! WHOOT!!! :-)
Where do I begin, this is a true story that started many years again in fact back in 2008, when my hair was falling out shortly after surgery. I felt like I was dying and they could not figure out what was going on, many test, much tears and my hair was falling to the floor in initial would show "JWCG" my hair would also a circle with curly-ques on top. Sometimes it would just make the initial in thin air I caught tit doing it on cam on day.
My wife loves to listen to Josh. Twenty years ago when we were dating, she was diagnosed w/breast cancer. I stood by her, she beat it, she became a relentless warrior with Komen For The Cure. She chaired the NC Triangle Race For The Cure two years in a row. We married in 2002. She dragged me the a JG concert in 2007. It was better than I expected! Guy can flat out sing! She has attended no less than 3 more JG concerts in the central NC area since and I'm pretty sure she owns every cd he ever put out. She has a loving husband (me, thank you very much), plenty of close, caring friends, two great kids and four wonderful grandchildren. She plays his music pretty much every damn day. I suspect it brings her a sense of tranquility, a calming influence.
