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.
I saw your 2007 concert twice in Pennsylvania and once in 2008. It is great to see the diverse audience. With that in mind, please always make your Concerts for that diverse audience. ( i.e. family concert - no 'suggestive' talk, cursing, etc.) Just stick to what appeals to your fans. It is so refreshing to be able to see a live concert and not worry about the performer coming up with 'off-color, lude and suggestive remarks.
You have a great presence with the audience and are a remarkable singer/songwriter.
Looking forward to your new Album and Live Concerts.
Took my parents and my best friend to see Josh perform at Tanglewood in '03. Had a ball helping everyone with setting up. Made a wonderful banner to commemorate the event and later gave it to MIConnie (We miss you!). My parents were SO excited to turn around in their seats at our tent to see Josh pulling up in a golf cart right in front of them. Mom about fell off her chair. It was great to have Josh come and chat with us after the concert. It really made us feel important and special, and Lisa's daughter hugging Josh's leg was so freakin' cute! I loved meeting so many of the people that I had only known by their posts and I hope some of them stay on with me through the years to come.
Not usre if the concert we went to was in 2004 OR 2005. We had seats in the center 9th row from stage-Fort Meyers, Florida. We drove 6 hours back and fourth to see Josh sing. I was mesmerized by his voice, his humble way and his Violin Player.
Actually all of his back-up. What a great contribution he has made to the world sharing his voice.
Josh seems to come to Cleveland in the winter,meaning snow,ice etc. We worry all day that we may not be able to get there, fortunately we never missed him. Come in the Spring Josh.
I was lucky to see Josh at Hampton Court a few years ago and i have to say it was fantastic, i just wish he would do some more conceryts in the uk
I attended a concert for The Closer concert tour on March 17, 2005 in Phoenix, AZ. I had never seen a performer connect so well to the audience as Josh did that night. He actually allowed fans to come to the edge of the stage to hand him gifts. He noticed and read out loud signs fans were holding. He took breaks between songs and spoke to the audience, making jokes and making everyone very comfortable. He made me feel like I knew him personally. It wasn't like any concert I had ever experienced in my life. I wished that I could have gotten a backstage pass and met and talked to Josh. I knew he would be very easy to talk to and I had so many questions I wanted to ask him having to do with music, since I am a singer/musician too. Well, I didn't get that backstage pass, but I got something else that was almost like having one. At one point in the concert, it got extremely quiet in the arena as Josh started to do an intro for the next song he was going to sing. As I was listening to him starting the intro I realized I could communicate with him from the audience, though he couldn't possibly see me because of the bright lights in his eyes even with me sitting in the 2nd row.
HEHEHE I know I know...no one gets into sound checks...but!!! my daughter Amy comes running across the Seattle Center grounds with high heels in hand telling me Josh was doing a sound check...so we take off...and all we could do was press against the building....Listening...there was a door...with about a 4 inch glass in it...a security guard came and he opened the door (must have been the look on our faces) sporting our nice beautiful lanyards that said AWAKE he thought we were part of the crew..well he said shhhhhhh dont tell anyone I let you in (GOD I LOVE THAT MAN) and up we crept into the shadows of the arena...there was Josh...trying out the stage...walking to the end...black converse and pants and T-shirt...we stayed just out of site..in awe...knowing how entirely LUCKY we were to be living that moment...Josh said something like...hayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy hay is for horses to piss on.. (opps!) not our Josh!
I went to the Seattle concert in August of 2007 for an early 18th birthday present. I had saved money ever since the CD came out because I was determined to go to the concert. Let's just say it was worth it! It was probably one of the best nights on my life. It was hilarious though, there was this girl there in line who was sooooo funny. She was quizzing my mom on all these random JG facts and swore to us that the security guard was going to let them past to go to Josh's dressing room (he didn't). Anyways, this same girl went up to the stage during the concert and gave Josh something. When he shook her hand she passed out. Josh made fun of her the rest of the night. I laughed. His recorded music doesn't even compare with hearing it live.
WE SHOULD LEARN FROM THE PAST
TO LIVE THIS PRESENT
DOING A BETTER FUTURE FOR OUR PLANET
IF YOU COULD UNDERSTAND...
WE'RE ALL PART OF THE CREATION
EVERYTHING WAS DONE FOR EACH
MOMENT OF BREATH, ...THEN...
LIGHT, PEACE & LOVE,
NO MORE DESTRUCTION.
PLEASE. BELIEVE IN GOD
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME **
After going to the concert in Columbus I was on cloud nine and wanted to go again. I was earning extra money my reading text books and recording them for a blind friend for his classes. Anyway I was living in Indiana at the time and wanted to take my parents to the concert near their home in Lancaster, PA. Yes, HERSHEY! It was a blast! We had seats on the floor right on an isle and I was hoping that Josh would come walking right past and he did!!!! I didn't get to shake his hand but wow! Later I went up front when Josh sat on the edge of the stage and I got a few pictures. That was the best night and I didn't want it to end!
