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 got tickets to see Josh at Tanglewood years back with my husband and another couple. We got there early so we had time to settle in and figure out where our seats were. The show was that evening and we had a long time to wait for it to start, so my husband and I decided to walk around the grounds and check it out. We strolled all around checking out how beautiful everything there was, the grounds were gorgeous! We got to an area that was a pretty open space and across the grounds I spotted a man who resembled Josh. Same build, same brown curly hair etc. The man was walking towards us and I started thinking, could that be him just walking around taking it easy before the show????? As the man got closer, I kept thinking thats not him, well maybe it is, maybe not, I couldn't tell but I was certainly convincing myself that it was! The man walking across the grounds was coming right towards us as if to stop and say hello. My stomache began to do flips, my mind was racing, OMG what do I say to him other than hello???? I squeezed my husbands hand so tight, he said hey, why are you squeezing my hand so hard. I whispered into his ear, it's him, it's him, OMG, it's him. WHO?
I've only been able to attend one Josh concert, and that was the March 15, 2005 concert in San Antonio, TX at the SBC Center. I had actually bought the tickets for my oldest daughter as a Christmas present. You see, March 15th 2005 was her 16th birthday! As a rabid Grobanite herself, I knew she would freak out when she realized she was spending her sweet 16 with Josh! ;)
It was March 8th, 2007, and my fiancee, Gabriel, and I were heading down from Maine to Connecticut for Josh's concert at the Mohegan Sun Casino. I was super excited because I had floor tickets, and I have never had floor tickets to a concert before.
I attended Josh's concert in Paris. I felt lucky because it wasn't advertised in the media. I happened to see a billboard ad and invited a friend.
It was brilliant. Josh walked among the audience mid-point and I've never seen that before. Certainly he was surrounded by four bodyguards, since he's not stupid. But it was wonderful to see an artist who's not afraid of his audience.
That said, I wonder who's writing the notes to the fans on the website and what Josh has been doing in the past 3 years.
You raise me up, is a song that I love wery much.
And it is the norwegian song-writher Rolf Løvland who write it.
In Norway we have a national quire contest. And my local zity priformed a wery nice wersion of this song in norwegian.

Have a nice day!!
The first and only time I've seen Josh in concert. A wonderful, intimate gig in the grounds of the stunning Hampton Court Palace as part of the festival in June 2007. Couldn't have been more than 2000 people there so it was fantastic. Wasn't till after that that I realised how huge he was in the USA, hardly anyone had heard of him in the UK so it was extra special. Great concert, wonderful open air summer evening. Couldn't have been better.
I just wanted to share my joy in receiving the DVD awake i ordered via internet. i sat on my sofa and watched it all. I am so pleased with it and it only increased my desire in one day being among the audience of such wonderful concerts. what i like most is Josh's approach to his fans. He's so ...! i can't describe it i just love all the attention fans get from him and he's so lively and energetic! i think he's got 'joie de vivre' as they say in french. and he is so successful in transmitting this joy to his fans!! Organisers please consider Malta for your next tour. Pleeeease!!
I have a sister who has Down Syndrome. She is a rabid Elvis fan and in the '70s I kept telling myself that the next time he was on tour I would take her. Well, that never happened and I have always kicked myself for procrastinating and denying her that thrill. She is more like a daughter to me than a sister and I would move mountains to make her happy.
She is now a rabid Josh Groban fan and for the Awake tour I promised myself that I would not make that same mistake again. Despite desperate attempts when the early ticket sales happened, the system refused to recognize my membership. I was totally freaked and my son and DIL both were frantically trying to get into the system and help me. My DIL finally got us tickets in the 12th row on the aisle and on the night of the concert, Trudy was beside herself with excitement.
i was so excited to read in the paper on Mother's Day 2007 that Josh would be coming to Australia September 28th 2007. i jumped around my mums kitchen so excited, i told everyone i know that i was going and that i wanted nothing less than front row centre, they all laughed at me.
On June 4th my birthday i got up early went to get in line to get my ticket where i got FRONT ROW CENTRE, it was the best birthday present the Universe could give me.
the night of the concert you could feel the magic and the excitment as everyone getting seated. From the moment josh started to sing it was like there was no-one else in the concert hall. My eyes just followed Josh around the stage, it was even more exciting when Josh came into the audience to sing In her eyes.
I have not seen any concert of Josh Groban live. But how I wish I could one day if given a chance. I only seen his concert "Awake Live" in DVD and I keep on watching it again and again whenever I wanted to, everywhere I go...in school,office or even travel coz I always bring with me my portable player. It feels like I was in the concert when I give applause to Josh in his live concerts or even shows.
