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.
Josh played the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, NJ on 7/24/07. I purchased tickets for my Mother & Father as it was their 31st wedding anniversary.. and I tagged along as I was NOT going to miss Josh!
Of course - the whole show was amazing! But when Josh sang "In Her Eyes" (my fave song!) and walked through the audience back onto the stage.. it was just breathtaking!
I am also a HUGE Dave Matthews fan - so when Josh explained how he composed "Lullaby" with Dave Matthews - I clapped & cheered very loudly - I think eveyone in the arena heard me!
Dad isn't the biggest fan.. but when Lucia & the orchestra broke out "Kashmir" he was very happy :)
I have been waiting patiently for Josh to come around again.. to NJ or NYC! Soon I hope!
Went to see the Paul Simon show at BAM ... fantastic! I've read that Paul Simon has influenced Josh. They played and sang together, fabulous! Remember Paul saying that he was the only one there who, apparently, didn't listen to himself when he was little!!!
I was going to go to the back door to see Josh leave the theatre, but didn't ... also didn't take any pictures. (Not sure about the whole "fan" thing.) Anyway, I was very glad to see that some people did do just that and they took pictures ... thanks!
Was really great to be there. Can most definitely see/hear Simon's African influence ... Lullaby is a lovely, heartfelt song.
This was my first Josh concert, and I can't wait to go to many more! ;-)
Sadly, I have not yet seen Josh live. :( I will one day. I'm pulling up all my money now for college. I did get to see Celtic Thunder on November 2nd and the only down side (if it's really even a down side lol) is that they don't talk between songs haha! on Live at the Greek and so many YouTube videos, you see Josh teasing the audience and having mini conversations. Celtic Thunder isn't just one guy, so it's harder to do that and not have some favoritism showed. Damian in particular is rather quiet. I think Paul would do most of the talking haha! But I think Josh has it going great for himself. He can just be up there on stage and be himself and sing his songs. (And he doesn't have to wear a kilt for ten minutes at the end of every show) hahaha! ok it's late (or early, rather: 2:06 AM) and I need sleep. Just thought I'd post any concert experience. I want to see Josh live so bad!!!! *hops up and down*
I wish I could go!!! I wish I could have gone to one of his concerts... but there really is nothing out in this desert of Tooele. Why would Josh come here? ... thats right, he wouldnt... [sigh].................
Like most people, I had of course heard of Josh Groban but never paid that much attention until I happened to turn into the KSPS network on New Years eve 2009.
Needless to say, I was totally in awe of his talent and it was the Greatest New Years Eve ever.
Thank you for sharing this evening with so many people, and I wish you much success in 2010.
Hope you will get fairly close to Calgary, AB in 2010. Would love to see you live,

The Rocker Killed me MUSICALLY
I really don't understand this message board...i went to comment on how Josh saved my life musically....because i am being bombarded by the media..i felt that the weight of divorcing my band mate and his friends so i could be a singer hurt me in the end...my rocker friend who sang with Neil Young got me to sing with his band and i disliked him in the music world...and got off track with my singing..i don't know why the board won't let me further b/c i hadn't finished explaining...people are going to think i am crazy saying the rocker tried to kill me...i meant MUSICALLY KILL me..like in a sense i knew i didn't want to sing with him. I did love singing with Josh...b/c he's a peacemaker and a nice guy overall very handsome young man with talent. I suppose thanking him for singing with my and standing by me is a too late thread here but better late than never....musically me and the rocker ex fianiance we just don't do well together in the music industry
This concert...my sister and I got Floor seats which was great! I was going through a divorce during this time and his concert was a must. It helped me think about things and prepared me with the hard time I had ahead.
It was awesome...Loved every moment.
