so...i'm sure you've seen me mention this guy, David Cook(or whatever), a time or two. right? well...as i'm sure most of you already know, on saturday i finally got to see him live and experience his extreme awesomeness in 3D. my dad, who is also pretty heavy in the awesome department, went with me. we got to the venue around 4 pm and there was already a good 100 people in line ahead of us. it was cool though because we were surrounded by great people and had hilarious conversations. doors opened at 6:30 and i spent the next 3 hours or so crammed like a sardine as close to the stage as i could get(about sixth row center).

first up was Ryan Star, who was absolutely phenomenal! he's extremely energetic and animated and it's nigh impossible to get a decent picture of him when he's onstage. i had no idea that he was on Rockstar: Supernova until i got home and looked him up on youtube. if you haven't heard of him before, he's definitely worth a look. word is his new cd will be out on june 2nd! you can find him on myspace, facebook and twitter if you're so inclined. funny story. after the show i bought his cd and gave it to my dad to go get signed while i was waiting to buy some DCook merch. dad gets up to meet him and Ryan asks who to make it out to and my dad says, "it's for my daughter. make it out to her, please." and the lady behind him teases, "suuuuure, it's for your daughter." dad laughs and tells Ryan that he really enjoyed the show, but it really is for me. Ryan then proceeds to sign the cd with "Tiggy, Your Dad ROCKS!". dad brings the cd back to me and i laugh and then we go see if he's still signing and taking pictures. luckily, he is! i finally get to the front and he reaches out to take my cd to sign and i tell him he already has and point to my dad. he laughs and says, "i really did think it was for him". hee!! he's a great guy and i plan on supporting him as much as possible.

i'm not sure what i can really say about seeing David live that hasn't already been said a million times by a million different people. he's amazing and it's hard to tear your eyes off of him because he's just so comfortable doing this thing that he loves. during the set i was mostly reduced to screams and utterances like "guh" "nnnnnnnnnnggggh", which pretty much sums up how i feel about him in general. so instead of trying to put into words how awesome this concert was for me, i thought i'd just post some of my favorite pics and link my videos.


this is what i call so close, yet so far away. *siiiiiiiiiiigh*

hottest performance of the night.


dude. seriously. i was right.there.

to sum up: A+++++. would rock again.

This looks AWESOME. I don't know if I'll be able to get this close though (the venue for the concert I'm going to is super huge) so I'll just have to rely on the camera zoom. :(

that is one thing i'm happy about with this college/university tour. most of the venues are small enough where you feel like you could reach out and touch him if you wanted to. i'm betting next time he tours it won't quite be the same. :(

i hope you have an amazing time! i want a full report with pictures!

Will do!

And am consoling myself with the thought that if the two Davids manage to fill up that huge space then it'll be wonderful for their international careers. :)
