The Frazee Pavilion

From the concert: 
Kettering, OH

On a near perfect afternoon in central Ohio, Greengroban and I left for Kettering...a place we had never been. (Nothing could keep us from wandering the countryside to hear Josh sing...we've travelled to Hollywood to hear him so this is nothing new)For some unknown reason I had purchased six tickets for this venue. Two I sold to some younger girls and two I kept for Sue and me.
After grabbing a bite to eat we decided to explore. We met SandraKay and were very happy to see her.SandraKay hugged me so hard, I thought I was going to fall down. ( At the time I was using a walker)

We saw a lady walking her dog and we asked if she lived nearby. We told her all about Josh and encouraged her to go see him if she could. Then I gave her the last two tickets....I hope that she

Josh in Detroit

From the concert: 
Detroit, MI

I love Josh's voice and I have all his CDs. I was disappointed in the Josh Groban concert in Detroit. He felt his celebrity status gave him the right to pander to those who lean left by trashing those who lean right. The crowd cheered as he went political. He remarked that he hoped that the Fox theater was not owned by Fox news. He made several totally unnecessary homo-erotic comments. I went to hear him sing. He needed to do that, instead of such negative and political rhetoric.
Further, the singer he had with him was more appropriately found in a heavy metal band than in the ballad and show tune genre for which Josh is known. Again, the crowd cheered. It seemed to me that no matter what he may have said or done, they were overwhelmed by being at his concert.

The Meet&Greet that wasn't

From the concert: 
San Francisco, CA

Sincerely glad so many people had such a great time. Just a warning: never BUY a Meet & Greet package! Never do it. It is not a meet and greet. It is only a 3 second photo op, being shoved into the spot before the next person has even left, being told not to talk or anything, just get out because verrrry long line. And the photo is so bad you can never look at it, much less share it. And in between, for 3 hours you have to stay in a room that is like a junior high gym, with a few sandwiches that look like leftovers and a little bowl of salad that looks like it spent the afternoon in the trunk of someone's car. And you can't leave, even to go buy a glass of wine or a program. For over $500 dollars.

Indianapolis October 14, 2015

The show was just AMAZING! I took my daughters and we waited after the concert at his bus. He high-fived the girls, autographed their posters, and talked with them. It made their night. He was so sweet (as I expected). I have seen him every time he has come to Indy and he never disappoints, and he loves his fans! My girls talked about that experience all the way home. What a wonderful memory for them to have. Thank you Josh for a wonderful evening and a lasting impression!

From the concert: 
Wallingford, CT

Parking at this venue was horrific.
We were lucky but many missed a significant part of the concert.
The concert started over 20 minutes late due to the traffic situation.

Loved the last Josh Groban concert I attended ( with my daughter ) in New Haven but this concert was not what We paid for. We paid to hear his amazing voice ( and comedic entertaining personality)!

Instead we heard some Josh but too much Lena Hall. They did a duet of All I Ask of YOu which did not compare at all to the Kelly Clarkson duet with Josh on the album. The other duet was a song not on the album, which I did not enjoy either.

A beautiful concert experience

From the concert: 
Toronto, ON

I bought my ticket to the second Toronto show on a whim. I'm glad I listened to that whim. I managed to snag a 5th row seat. I met a fellow Grobanite I'd spoken with briefly on livenation's Facebook post of the show, and I ended up sitting next to her at the show. I think I've made a friend. The two seats in front of us were empty, so the view we had was unobstructed. The second show was an even more magical experience, and more than well worth the price I paid for it. He performed "If I Can't Love Her" after a Twitter poll, and had a little fun throwing the Blue Jays into Over The Rainbow. The next time Josh returns to Toronto, you can bet I will be in the audience.

My Dream Come True

From the concert: 
Toronto, ON

I've been a fan of Josh since the beginning, but hadn't been able to attend a concert. Until this one. I can't begin to explain how beautiful the experience was to finally hear his voice organically rather than on a recorded CD. The only things separating his voice from my ears were a microphone, soundboard, and the speakers. After the show, I met him briefly at the stage door, and asked for a quick photo. Security said no, but Josh immediately said, "If you lean in while I'm signing something, we'll do it." Thanks for that, Josh! There will be many, many more concerts in my future.

Tickets for sale 9/17/15

From the concert: 
New York, NY - 11/14/2011

Hey everyone...
I bought two tickets several months ago for my husband and myself to go to the concert in Pittsburgh on 9/17/15 but since then I got a new job and they won't let me off work at all or I could lose my job. So it pains me but I'm looking to sell the two tickets for the Josh's concert in Pittsburgh this thursday. Please let me know if you can make it! I paid 175 a ticket but willing to negotiate.
