I wasn't planning on attending this show so I didn't purchase a VIP ticket when they were available. So......does anyone have an extra VIP ticket for sale by chance?

Peggy, you might not be going now? Saddest

Your ticket isn't a VIP though, right? That's what I think she is looking for.

Attempting to start my recap from my iPad while I wait for Eve to get ready so we can head for home after the best David Cook weekend ever!

It was a long ride to Watseka...about 6.5 hours of nothing but flat land, cornfields, and windmills. Apparently, western Ohio, Indiana and Illinois are big on wind power. Literally hundreds of windmills in rows, kind of creepy looking.

We got to Watseka and checked into the hotel, then headed to the theater for dinner and the show. The theater does a $10 add on to your ticket, and serves you dinner before the show. We ate, and then into the theater to wait. (We did not do VIP for this show.)

Our seats were second row on the center aisle, so we were right in front of Dave. The opener was good, but he played a cover of Wicked Game. We were like, "uh oh. Bad choice." But he did a good job with his songs, and he was cute too.

Dave came out and the crowd went crazy. He did the full 18 song Setlist. During Eyes on You he told us to dance. So this guy comes down the aisle on his way to the bar and he was dancing (badly) all the way. Of course, Dave saw him and when the song was over he called him out and got him up on stage. When Dave asked him his name, he said, "Rich...Dick" so Dave asked us to give it up for Rich Dick. LOL flag the look on his face when he realized what he said was priceless! He told the guy he had to do those group numbers on Idol for 4.5 months and hated them, so he was going to give him an out. He could either dance for us, or he could do a shot with Monty. The dumb guy said he would leave it up to the audience, so of course we made him dance. Dave was losing it, and Monty gave him a shot anyway before he left the stage. It was hysterical!

In Kokomo, Dave told us that he found out later the guy was a high school teacher, and he had students in the audience. He said he hoped he didn't lose his job over it, lol.

When it was time for Lie, Dave stepped to the mic and did his explanation of the acoustic songs, and he said while he normally encourages noise during his songs, this one needed quiet so we could hear. Before he started singing, he said, "So shut it!" And we did. You could hear a pin drop. He was doing his usual beautiful singing, and then in the middle he said, "Wow, it's almost too quiet!" Make up your mind, Dave! LOL Face

When it was time for Wicked Game, he had to talk about the opener doing the same song. Joked that it was like a challenge, but was nice about the opener.

All the songs sounded great, the audience was totally with him, and it was just a fantastic night. The theater owner was hysterical... Introduced Dave by telling us to buckle our seat belts and strap on our parachutes because we were going for a ride. LOL then he actually reintroduced him for the encore. Dave said that had never happened before.

Dave waited after the show to talk with everyone who wanted. The line was long, and we knew we would be seeing him the next two nights, so we just waved to him and went back to the hotel. Kristin, Juls, Nicole, Tracy, and some others were right across the hall from us, so we stayed up way too late with them, talking and laughing our asses off. Getting up for the drive to Kokomo in the morning was tough.

It was one of the best shows I had ever been to, and I didn't see how the weekend could get any better. I purposefully set my expectations very low for the next night in Kokomo. How wrong that thought turned out to be... To be continued in the Kokomo thread...

Thanks for the recap!

I'm so glad people were quiet during Lie. One of my (many) pet peeves is when he asks for quiet and people can't shut up for the length of one song.

Can't wait til Friday!!!Excited

Something I forgot - everything runs together - as I said, we were 2nd row center on the aisle, and these girls kept coming down the aisle and bending down so someone could snap a picture of them with Dave in the background. They were totally sticking their asses out at Dave. I turned to Eve and said, "Oh you know he's going to say something."

Sure enough, about the third time it happened, Dave stopped the song he was doing. He told them to come back down the aisle and he then had them take a picture which he totally photobombed. He said it was the "best photobomb ever." LOL flag

Dorothy, enjoy your show and please tell us about it!
