St Paul MN August 2007 First concert to see Joshn Groban and it was the best concert I have been to in years!!! Great music, stage performance and setting, music, all of it. I would definitely go again and again! I like hearing Josh sing. He has such a beautiful voice like I haven't heard in many many years. The first time I heard him sing on the radio many years ago, I thought him to be much older, and to my surprise he was so young.
He is a gift to all of use, thank you Josh!!!!!
Hi Josh, Just looking and wondering where you are going to be this New Years 2010? Thanks so Much!!! :)
I am a teacher in Hartford, CT and am trying to post on your blog. I have been listening to you for years. I have been a teacher in Hartford, CT for 7 years. I have been trying to teach my students to love music and understand it is for interpretation. They love when I play you because they feel a sense to make meaning. You teach my students to read while feeling they "feel." I would love for you or your band to come to my school so they could learn what hard work can accomplish. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you could accommodate my requests. Thanks. Corinn
That man is amazing! OK, so it wasn't as good as the front row was the first time I saw him, but still it was awesome. He's got a hell of a voice-nobody sings better than him, in my not-so-humble opinion.
I thought I could keep it together for "You Raise Me Up." That worked for about thirty seconds! That song gets to me - it reminds me of my mom and all of the crap she's put up with and the hell she's gone through because of me.
Anyway, it wasn't quite the same sitting so far back. He was about an inch tall. I was front row center last time (Valentine's Day 2005)! And, this would be the time that Josh decided to actually pay attention the front row. I tried my best last time. I was right in front of him and there was no getting his attention. This time, he was schmoozing with everyone in the front. NOT FAIR! It was really cool getting Lucia Micarelli's attention last time though, even if it was because I was all emotional - she asked me if I was ok.
Unfortunately I never saw Josh life, hopefully I will when his new CD is out!
Drove 8 hours to Melbourne in October 2007 to see Josh in concert, I nearly didn't get tickets but luckily Josh added another concert to his already busy schedule. I sat mesmerised, listening to the "voice of mass seduction" and it was one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences of my life. Like all other devotees, I can hardly wait for the next concert, not to mention the next album, but until then, I am happy to keep watching the dvd's of his concerts (over and over again!)
I have never been to one of his concerts. I am waiting anxiously for him to tour again and come to Florida.
as I live in Algeria, I've never been honored to assist at any Josh's concert, unforrtunately.I've always asked my self why celebs like josh or others do never come, is it because of political reasons? or because of my country is not a really "developped" one?. many people like me know Josh, respect him and love his music, but as our money is less stronger that dollar or the euro, we cannot traval to see him performing in other countries, we cannot contribute to his fondation...I just wanted to share this statut with those who want to read about people like me, who love Josh despite everything.
I hope that someday Josh will perform in Poland. I've never had a posibility to see him live:/
The First time I have ever saw Josh Groban perform was at BAM
(Brooklyn Academy of Music) on April 27, 2008. I was so excited to
know that Josh was in the same building with me and only seconds
away from me. when my taxi dropped me off in front of the building
I walked in and I met some of my fellow grobies that I have never
met before it was so nice to visit with them. About 7:45 I went to
the balcony to be seated, the concert was suppose to began at 8:00 but
was running a few minutes late. This concert was dedicated to
Paul Simon. the groups that performed were Olu Dara, Grizzly Bear,
The Roches, Gillian Welch, Paul Simon and of course Josh Groban
It was fun listening to some of Paul Simon's old hits of the past.
The other groups were fantastic, even though I was not familiar
with them and their music. I Could hardly wait for Josh to appear
when he did fans in my row were screaming for Josh! I will never
forget it! and I saw Josh looking up towards the balcony it looked like he was trying to see the fans there were screaming, I was wishing he could see me I guess I will never know if if saw me or not.
