......than CW in Carolina in the Evening!!!!!

Wow!!!! 3 CW concerts in the 5 days. I'm starting to get too old for this.....I don't think I could have made it without Celtic_Fiddler's Pixie Dust!   Grin

As usual.....our favorite Pixie was on fire, but unlike Augusta, this was a CW crowd and it didn't need to be awakened from a deep sleep.

Tonight I was Front-Row-Dead-Center......pole position.....best seat in the house!  You know?  The platform CW puts up on stage that comes to a point?........well I was sitting 12 feet from that point.....so when Mairead runs out to center stage she's looking right at me......Wow!!!!

And no....I didn't drool on Lynn's shoes!  Grin  I was close enough, but my wife was on my left and hannalmatt was on my right so they kept holding me back!  Cheesy  I couldn't do anything that resembled being "rowdy."  Angry

The Meet-n-Greet was with Chloe and Alex.  After Birmingham, I figured it would be 2 CWs among Chloe, Alex, and Orla, because after Lynn and Mairead in B'ham, i'm not sure there were any MnGs in Augusta or Pensacola, so a combination that included Maired or Lynn was improbable. 

I was hoping that Alex would be one of the MnGs because this may be the only opportunity I would ever have to actually meet her, and she was stunning in person.  As you would expect from a Celtic Woman, she was absolutely "on top" of her "personality game."

Orla was absolutely on top of her game, too.....in the 15 CW concerts I have attended, I have yet to see her when she was not having a great time.  I guess she gets to inhale a lot of Maireadium!  Smiley  Wish you could have been there, artist1.

Lynn confirmed what we learned in Birmingham and Augusta....she's operating on a whole new level.

But the really neat thing that happened was a "Moscapoet Moment," almost like what happend with him in Birmingham.  Hannahlmatt did not have MnG tickets so she asked me to get autographs for her.

When I gave the photo to Chloe and asked her to sign it for Hannah...she remembered Hannah sitting on the front row...it generated the same kind of excitement Moscapoet had in Birmingham!!!

Check out hannahlmatt's follow-up post in the G'boro review over on the CW Forum.  She tells the story, and you'll see what I'm talking about! Smiley

Meantime....I gotta' get some work done now....you guys are the best, and I'm envious of any of you who still have concerts to attend on this tour!

Later, JB

Thank you for that fun review JByrd! I'm so glad you had that great seat! I'm glad you met Alex too because we forum folks need to let her know just how marvelous she is. I'll be sure to get you an autographed photo of Lynn if she is at any of the meet & greets in my concert schedule for this tour. Three concerts in five days should energize you for awhile but we'll be sure you get plenty of reviews to stoke your fires for the remainder of the tour. Thanks again.
