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 that Josh was having a concert in San Diego... I really wanted to watch him live but he hasn't come to Mexico (AND WE ARE WAITING!!! hey Madonna and Celine have been her!!!) So, I decided to go to San Diego to watch him live... it was like magic!! I hadn't been in San Diego either so it was a great trip, it's a beautiful city and to hear him sing... OMG!! I can't describe in words what I felt... I hope I'll see him again soon in 2010. I'll be waiting for the schedule of concerts to see if I can go again.
After all, I was a woman in my forties, in jeans and a shirt, where every other eager, young woman was over made up, over dressed and over wrought with excitement. It paid off. I got Josh's and 2 other band member autographs on my program. It is framed and hangs in my study - a reminder of a wonderful concert, an exceptional talent and a gift that still rests in my heart as one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. I hope one day to see Josh in concert again. Perhaps next time I will actually be able to see him and not cry quite so much.
I was at the September 30 concert in the Sydney Opera House.I am not very big on concerts or crowds, but I knew from the moment I heard Josh's voice that I would do whatever I had to do to see him. So I scraped up the money and a friend paid for a hotel room overnight. I had a pretty good seat but still couldn't see the stage because I cried all the way through the concert. So did the lady next to me. We would look at each other, laugh at our own stupidity, look back up at Josh and burst into tears again. She shared her lollies with me. I had a connection with her. We both had a connection to Josh.It was as if his voice vibrated to the core of my soul. I guess it was about half way through the concert, he ran off stage to re-emerge in the audience. We all stood in our row. He ran past and my fingers brushed along the hair of his forearm, trailing onto his white shirt. Just a second, maybe not even that. After the concert I waved off my comrade in tears and waited around the stage door. Very self consciously, very quietly.
I first heard Josh Groban at my 2nd cousins wedding.I fell in love with the song You raise me up after I heard it sang while being played on violin.Then the year later in my Vocal Music class my teacher handed out sheet music to You raise me up.Ever since that day in Vocal Music class I have been inspired by his soothing songs.My dream would be to meet Josh Groban or get a letter in gthe mail from him.Now I have two of his cds and listen two them for hours.
Me and my friends went to A'dam on May 21th. It was a great concert (the only place with a bar inside the concert hall)
It was a great show and we can't wait for Josh to visit Holland again!!
Thanks for a great evening, even though it has been over 2 years, we still enjoy looking back on it!
Hope to see you soon!
I have always been a fan of Josh how could you not but when I saw chess in concert on tv it made me a bigger fan. I love theatre so to see Josh doing an amazing job in Chess really made my day. Never stop singing Josh :)
I loved the last concert of yours I saw. I was wondering why you haven't yet recorded Oh Holy Night on any of your CD's? Hope to see it on your next holiday CD.
Being disabled and having a fixed income, I unfortunately do not have the luxury of seeing his glorious concerts. I am happy though to catch the TV appearances and webcasts.
Josh has a wicked/twisted sense of humor and an intelligence I hold in high esteem. I also find great humor when it comes to bizaare behavior. The Turkey incident being an example. I too found it highly amusing.
Someday maybe if the fate's are smiling, I will be fortunate to see Josh's beautiful soul-reaching eyes in person.
My best friend was dying. She had Cystic Fibrosis and was starting to decline, her breathing was weathered and her amazing energy was now forced. We spent the day at the beach (followed by a few cocktails), and listening to the entire Closer cd in the car on the way home. Shannon passed away a few days later.
As her best friend, I wanted to honor her memory and joined the CF Foundation running team to run the prestigious Boston Marathon. I'm not a runner at ALL, but our team raised $150k for the CF ward at Boston Children's Hospital - they support the families as they stay with their children in the hospital.
The day of the race, I had my iPod ready and was nervous but ready to go. My heart was a beating a million thumps a minute and I felt Shannon with me the entire day.
But as the day went on, I was struggling. And as the mile marker for mile 17 was ahead of me, I couldn't go on. I was hurt and my heart was sad. I missed my best friend. And I stopped, put my hands on my knees and started to cry. And there was the song.... You Raise Me Up on my iPod. Shannon sent her love through you and your song.
Why can't a get a copy of "O Holy Night" on MP3 anywhere?
A Big Fan!
