Awake Tour: Providence, RI

My second time seeing Josh in concert. It was an unbelieveable show and Josh walked right by me during the concert. Had a great time!

Closer Tour: Mansfield, MA

I saw Josh in concert for the first time back in '04 at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA. It was an amazing concert in an outdoor venue. One thing that sticks out in my mind about the concert was that when Josh started singing "Remember When it Rained", it actually started raining. It was a great concert!

One Day

Hopefully one day when he comes to Egpt; I will leave a comment here I promise :D

Awake Tour

It was the best birthday I ever had in my life! My sister bought us tickets to go see Josh in Atlanta, GA. That is about a 5 hour drive from where we live. We stayed in a great hotel and took a cab when it was time to see Josh. The whole weekend was great. I made friends with the man sitting next to me at the concert. When Josh came on, we just grabbed each other and embraced! It was really funny. Josh was magnificent, incredible, masterful, and any other fantastic words you can think of. As Josh has said several times in interviews, "It was a dream come true!" Thanks to my sister and an amazing thank you to Josh!

Best day of my life

I had gotten tickets to the concert at the Post Gazette Pavilion in Pittsburgh for the 2004, but I had no idea this was going to be the concert in which I was going to meet him.
My grandfather had passed away a day before my 24th birthday that year, and it was very unexpected. So, my mom kept putting in his music, saying it made her feel better, as did I.
Well, when I heard about the essay contest that FOJG was having about why you wanted to meet Josh, I was still in a somber mood while I was writing it and listening to his music had given me peace.
So, I had put my cell phone number down as a way to reach me, and that evening when Warner Brothers Records called, I was working at Barnes and Noble. I went on my break and seen I had a missed call from a number that I didn't recognize. So, I was just curious and I called it back. They said that were from the record company and asked me if I was going to the concert coming up. I said yes. And then they asked me if I wanted to meet Josh. I swear the whole store must have heard me shriek. It was one of the best days of my life. I must have floated through the store the rest of my shift.

The whole weekend was wonderful. It started with a wonderful M&G where we raised a record amount of money at a M&G for GFC and collected lots of items for the L.A. Food Bank. While the auction was going on, some grobies got to watch Josh rehearse at the HB. It’s so wonderful that they got to see him.

The next morning, some of us brought food to the Food Bank and volunteered there, while other grobies got to watch Josh rehearse again. When he saw that grobies were in the house, walked all the way up the stairs to greet them. Great video from that.

That night Josh’s portion started with Angelique Kidjo giving Josh a wonderful introduction and great video showing snippets from Josh’s childhood, famous people he’s met and wonderful words about us, the grobanites. I loved the video.
