My first concert

From the concert: 
Amsterdam, NL

This was my first Josh Groban concert. I'm a 16 year old girl and I can tell you there aren't much people at my age who lov eJosh Groban as much as I do. Such a shame! they are missing so many beautiful sounds and feeling. This concert was defenitely not my last, his music is so moving, I wanted to cry when he walked off stage. I wanted to cry because that perfect moment was over, a perfect moment that lasted for 2 hours, one of the best two hours of my life so far. I'm so greatfull for the fact that I have been a part of those magical hours. Thank you Josh, for this unforgettable moment.

From the concert: 
Amsterdam, NL

It was Past Fryday an beautifull Sunny day!And it was JOSH day!
WE (my daughter and i) walkt to the HMH.First something to eat in the REST and then to our places
in the Theater.I had been there befor when Josh sung in 2011.We had good places with a fine look at the stage.
I met one of the FOJG members, that was very nice to meet someone you are in touch with over the years !
And there was Josh,big smile, started right away to talk about some funny and more serieus things.
Of cause when you are a long time FAN you know a lot of this stuff but it,s Always good to here him tell about his live!
Then he started to sing,it felt like his voice getting better all the time!!!!It,s Always an very emotinal performens for

Welcome to the land down under - well nealy here I suppose!

From the concert: 
Cape Town, South Africa

Hey man! You must be nearly in Oz! Feel like I've had these tickets forever!
Bringing the in-laws and Dad - have converted them!
Can't wait to see who you've chosen for the duets. Would have given my eye teeth to sing in your choir!
Being a music theatre tragic (and history buff), have long awaited this album! Friday night at the gorgeous Opera House will be a welcome relief from my increasingly tough time with my 6 y.o. daughter who has a severe intellectual disability. Some respite shall we say! An escape - to a world of pure imagination! Oh, and just a Josh and a few hundred other people! (Sounds like a Sondheim song!) Do you still do the audience sing with you bits?

My dream to sing

This song goes out to my most favorite artist and a star of the 21st century, Josh Groban, who I have excitement of attending his concert in Cape Town April 2016. I ask if I may have the honour of singing a song with you? It would be a dream come true for me as I step into my future career being the music industry -my ultimate life goal. It would be an awesome experience and a lot of fun.

MY Josh experience.

To make a long story short.....

I have been to a few Groban concerts...a long long time ago. Yes, even in the front row. I have been to a few Grobanite parties. I have stood in line 17 hours once for a signing of the Awake Cd. I have also even attended an event honoring Josh back in school years ago...met Josh a couple of times and of course acted like a complete dork. The only thing I do not have is a picture with Groban himself...oh well a Grobanite cant have everything now can we? lol. Not sure when I will be able to afford to go to another concert but its still fun to keep up with the events that Josh does...I have been blessed with my experiences so I am not going to complain how long its been since I had a one.

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.
