Josh Groban Concert Stories

Josh's concerts are always interesting - but everyone's recollection is a little different. What were your favorite moments? What's the closest seat you've ever had to Josh? Were the people around you singing along? Share your stories, so we can document the JG live experience in detail.

My First Live Concert Experience with Josh!

This had to be the most thrilling and exciting night of my life! I finally had my chance to watch Josh live in Winnipeg at the MTS Centre! It was INCREDIBLE!!! I was 17 rows away from the stage!

I was truly blown away by the fantastic light show on the stage and of course, his beautiful voice. The part that I wasn't expecting was during the song "In Her Eyes" when he was in the audience shaking hands. He came past my row and I bulldozed my mom to the side to see him up close. That's not all that happened!

Later on during the show, I made my way towards the stage, since other girls were crowding around there too. I had a camera and I was taking up-close shots of him. Not only that, I touched his hand! I couldn't believe it for a sec, but then I was like "WOW!!!"

As you can tell by reading this, I definitely had a BLAST! I'm hoping that when he has another tour, he will be back.

Combine Travel and concerts

I enjoyed the AWAKE concert in Atlanta so much that I picked a meeting for work in Philadelphia to coincide with the Atlantic City
AWAKE concert where one of my cousins came to join me that weekend. I will most likely continue this practice when possible even just to visit a new city that I haven't been to before or to see an old friend or relative in the city where Josh will be performing in the future. Life is short and I need to enjoy what I like and combine 2 or more things since travel is so expensive these days.

Try planning your concerts this way.

Seattle Key Arena 08-2008

I went to the Seattle Concert in Aug 2008 and He was singing In her eyes.Many of you know he goes in the where audience is and sings. Well my sister kept saying you got a to shake his hand and then she said give him a hug. He comes to where I am sitting and I reach and I put my arms around him for a second and I walked away and I couldn't believe I hugged Josh. I know I will always remember that moment.

He can sing beautifully...even with a woman's hand in his pant leg!!!!

My first and only Josh Groban concert was in Columbus, OH back in 2008. I am a Josh music addict. I can be listening to Il Divo, or Sting or Bocelli or almost anyone and, after a few songs it is "Well, time to dial in Josh on the Ipod."

Anyway, this was my first live concert and it was in a big arena...probably 20K people and filled to the brim. I really did not expect that Josh, on stage all by himself, could possibly sound as great as he does on his albums. Wow! Was I wrong about that! I was just blown away by the power of his voice in person and his endurance to sing, by himself (for the most part...Angelique was there for a few songs!) for 2 1/2 hours. What energy and charming stage presence!!

The song I loved most was when he sat on the edge of the stage and sang 'Not while I'm Around' from Sweeney Todd. That was the first time I had ever heard the song and he did it just with piano accompaniment. His voice was so clear, strong and pure...just beautiful!! There were women all around him during the whole song, below the stage, and he was touching hands and interacting all the while he was making this amazing sound. Never broke his stride!

Las Vegas

I found out Josh was going to be playing in Vegas at the MGM Grand, so I called got tickets and a room there. Then surprised my daughter who was 19 at the time and had a great time at the concert, Josh was fantastic ! Then was able to show my daughter Vegas for 2 days we had a blast !!!

JG Concerts

Had the best time seeing this wonderful vocalist and had great seats to boot. (3rd row center stage!) :D

Groban hits Indy

It's been so long now, I can't even remember the year! I want to say it was April, 2004. The venue was the Murat Theatre (a lovely place). I went with a friend, Rob, who'd just barely heard of Josh. Josh was just gaining major popularity, and I remember now that he was a little nervous about talking to the audience and was a little ill at ease at doing so. Now, judging from what I've seen on TV/DVDs, he's old hat at it now - very comfortable.

The music was gorgeous of course, and I was near tears most of the time, as his voice just pierces my very being. My only disappointment was that he did not sing "When You Say You Love Me." I probably would've lost it at that point, so maybe that was a good thing.

He came back to Indy that same year, in August. I had a ticket, but ended up selling it (I didn't like the venue, and would've had to go by myself). He hasn't been back since, so I'm sure hoping he'll include us in his next tour.

Bad Timing

Had listened to Josh casually, (I'd heard "To Where You Are", "You're Still You" and of course, "You Raise me Up" - but didn't really know much about his music or who he was. Totally blown away by the "You Are Loved" video. Played it constantly ... and signed up for FOJG ... 3 DAYS AFTER he played Atlanta on the AWAKE tour.

Ouch. Now THAT sucked. That's my "un-concert" story. Sob!

My Best Concert Ever & How He Touches My Heart!!!

It was July 25th at the Nassua Coliseum & from the day I purchased the tickets I could not wait for the day to come. I hold many for is song in my heart as they touch so many things I've gone through in my life. I lost two special friends one from a drunk driver on my 21st B-Day & another special friend from years of fighting cancer. I also have a seizure disorder & have gone through many surgerys & tons of test but I never let win. I go back in on January 19th, 2010 to have scull replaced from my brain June 23rd & 30th. It was a two step surgery then infection took place & scull was removed in July & now work to install a new scull. All I have to say is his songs touch my heart that even my two boy's age's 9 & 8yrs old love to hear them.

Columbus, OH

This was my very first concert EVER!!! I am pretty sure I was crying when he came onstage and that orange curtain dropped! We had seats that were pretty far away, I think the second level, but nothing will ever replace the feeling of giddiness I had for that entire concert! Me and four of my friends made the trip from our college, and had a wonderful time. We listened to Awake the entire way there, and back. My friend Jenna and I were freaking out when Ladysmith Black Mambazo were there! There are no words to describe how excited we were!

I kept getting yelled at for taking pictures, but I didn't really care. The pictures are so fuzzy, it's not like I could use them anywhere anyway. We were all the way on the opposite side of the stage as Josh.

After this concert, I joined the fan club within maybe a week, and I've never looked back! I love being a member of FOJG, and I cannot WAIT until the next tour!
