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.
There was a very cute film of Josh through his childhood years, and then finishing with his career to date. His friend, Angelique Kidjo, spoke about Josh and introduced him to the audience. He started with “Canto Alla Vita.” It was such a treat to see Josh perform live again. And to see him play the synthesizer and drums this time was magnificent. It was an outstanding performance and an honor to witness his special night.
He was absolutely amazing. I was actually pretty close to the stage and I enjoyed myself very much. His voice was amazing, as always, and it sounded even better with the wonderful orchestra behind him. He sang wonderfully, and to my surprise, never got pitchy.
Well the long and short of it is that I haven't been to a Josh Groban concert yet. For whatever reason I just haven't been able to go. It just wasn't meant to be. But this next tour I will not miss, even if I have to move mountains.
So my family and friends went to Disney in Dec of 07. My family had to split from the group becuase my youngest son was too small to go on a ride. Later, my boys had to go to the bathroom, so I took them (arrgghh). While I was in the bathroom w/my boys, my friend called our phone and my hubby answered.. She said they were on their way to meet up w/us. On the way to meet us, who does she run into? JOSH!!! OMG...What are the odds?? Anyway, she asks him to walk w/her to meet me. He said no (sigh).. so she asked him to call me - he did (love ya for that!). My hubby answered the phone cuz I was still in the bathroom w/my boys.. Josh asked for me and my hubby didn't believe it was him and hung up on him.. (yes, we're still married). My friend later told me what happened and I wanted to kill my hubby! He's lucky he's still alive! I was soooo sad.. Anyway... I made the best of it and made a sign at the Green Bay, WI concert, in which Josh read aloud.. It read "I'm the Linda you called at Disney who's hubby hung up on you.. May I Please have a hug?" I got the best HUG ever!! Thank you, Josh!!
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 email@example.com 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!
