Orland concert

次の日は、オーランド。私だけがチケットを持っている。
だから、一人でタクシーで行こうと考えた。

Next day, Orland. Only I had a ticket.
I thought I would go by taxi by myself.

家族達がRVパークのプールで遊んでいる間(息子は機嫌を直して遊び始めた)
夕食を作り、7時にタクシー会社に電話して待った。

During my family was playing in the RV park pool ( my son fixed his feeling and began to play),
I made their dinner(pasta) ,called a cab at 7:00 and wait.

でも、タクシー来ない。3回催促したけど、オペレーターは、あなたのためにタクシーを捕まえるのに最善を尽くしています。っていうばっかり。

But cab didn't come. I called 3 times, operator said they did their best to find my cab .

45分待ってる間に、ふとツイッターをチェックすると、スティーブからメッセージが。
やっぱりリストに載ってるんだって!自分のサイト(RV置いてあるところ)に急ぐと家族達がちょうどプールから戻ってきた。(サイトに走る間、迷ってあわてて他の人のサイト間を走ったら犬に追いかけられた。お利巧な犬で、足をかまないで舐めてくれた)

I was waiting for 45 min. On the other hand, Checked Twitter and found steve's message. We were on the list!! I rushed to my site and watched they came back from the pool.

娘に聞くと行くと言うので(娘はとにかくピックが欲しかった)夫に一緒に着てもらうように頼み、タクシーは結局こなかったのでまたもやRV出動。
作った夕飯をシンクの中に突っ込んで(置いておくと、急ブレーキですっ飛ぶ)出動。
(9:11に携帯電話にタクシー会社からのログが残ってた。2時間後?ありえない!!)

I asked my husband to come with me. Taxi didn't come then we went by RV again.
( there was a log taxi operator called me at 9:11. after 2 hours I called???No way!! )

息子と違って、移動中はスタンバイになり、プール海、すべて満喫な娘。ほんとにスイッチがあるみたい。
WS000089.jpg


またもや迷って、オーランドのダウンタウンについたのは8:20.そして、マイアミと同じように駐車場の番人に交渉する。会場についたのは8:45分だった。
今回は夫の名前を行って、すんなり入れる。

Again lost and we reached Orland downtown at 8:20 and negotiate with parking man same as Miami.
We reached venue around 8:45.
This time, I told will call my husband name and we could enter.

会場に入ると思ったより狭かった。
真横からなら背の低い人間でも見られる隙間があった。でも、娘がそこは嫌だというので、家族でカウンターに。
またもや夕食抜きで来てしまったので、子ども達にコーラを注文。すると、バーテンダーさんが、娘に特別カクテルを作ってくれ、私達にも水のサービス。
そして、音調整の人?はガールフレンドが日本人ということで、日本語ぺらぺら。とてもすばらしい発音。
この腕に巻かれた緑の紙はVIP??って思ったけど、みな同じのを巻いている。子ども好きなバーテンダーさんだった。

そんなことしているうちに、人がもっと入ってきちゃって(前座のクリスさんの間)、そこからは、ほとんど見えなくなっちゃった。私も、人の頭の上に、彼らの顔がみえるくらい。
娘なんかまったく見えない。だっこしながらコンサートを見る。

I watched their show with holding my daughter(it was heavy)

ショーの最中に、息子が空腹を我慢できなくなり、夫と退出。
娘の目的はピック。ここにいたらもらえないよ、というと、前に行く!といきなり豹変。
前に突撃しようと移動すると、ちょうどカムトゥゲザーでクリスが舞台から降りてきた。
私はハイタッチしてもらい、娘は見えなかったようでぶつかられて(笑)
結局ピックは手に入らず。

My son was hungry and went out to eat something with my husband.
My girl wanted picks. I said to her we couldn't get them here, she moved forward.
Come together began. I did high-touch with Kris. but couldn't get picks.

ショーが終わった。片付けにスティーブが出てきたので、ありがとうを言いに行く。

After the show finished, I went to say "thank you" to Steve.

実は、今回スティーブが「メールを教えて」とか「名前を教えて」とか言いながらも、自分の理解の足りなさからその好意をうけとれなかったわけだけど、
スティーブがそこまでしてくれる理由もわからなかったから、そんなわけないよなー、と疑心暗鬼だったの。
そしたら私達をみるやいなや
スティーブは顔がものすごく輝いて、
「やっと見つけた!!!ものすごくギターがうまいね!ビデオ見て驚いて、クリスやバンドメンバーに見せたんだ。みんな驚いてたよ!!」という、本当に、私達を見つけてうれしいという気持ちを全身にあらわしての対応だったので、すっごくびっくりした。
そして、うちの娘って、クリスにまで「すごい」って言われるってすごくない??と、誇りでいっぱい。

Steve was very delightful to find us. And said he showed my daughter's YouTube to KAB and All were impressed with my daughter.
WS000088.jpg
口のピアスが怖いけど、すっごくやさしいスティーブ!娘はぽっかーん。でも、ケールとクリスのピックもらって実は内心ご機嫌。
Very sweet Steve. My girl was expressionnless but very happy inside because she got Kris' and Cale's pick!!


スティーブは、私はマイアミの時もずっと観察していたわけだけど、見かけがちょっとラッパー?って感じで、もっと怖い人だと思ってた。それが、ものすごく親切で、暖かい人。クリスの周りは魅力的な人ばかり。クリスは世界一幸せな人間だ。

Steve was very kind and warm in opposite of cool appearance. Attractive people around Kris. Kris is the most happy man.

スティーブは私達に「外でもうちょっと待てる?」と言った。わかった、と、外に出て行った。

Steve asked me to wait outside.

だけど、夫は子ども達のためにはもうRVパークに戻るべきだと考えていた。(私が英語があまりできないので、ステーブが言ったことも信じてなかった) ちょっと言い合いになる。幸い、娘がピックをもらうために待ちたいといったので、待った。
でも、不安。外で待てって、外ってここ??こないかも、、、という状態。

But my husband thought we should go rv park for my children health. (he didnt believe what steve had said to me because I couldn't hear English well.) A little conflict.
My girl wanted to wait. So we stayed.

もうこれ以上 夫を待たせられないって時に、スティーブが私達の方に走ってきた。

At that time I couldn't hold my husband any more, I saw Steve was running toward me.

彼がリードするのをついていった。何個か曲がり角を曲がると、クリスに会うために長い列があった!!
スティーブはリジーに「わりこむよ~」というと、リジーが「は、あなた、わりこむのね」と言ったと思うと、
目に前に、もう、クリス。
まったく準備などしてなく、クリスがしゃべって、皆でうなずく、みたいな。
クリスはまず娘にハイタッチして、私と握手、夫と握手、息子と握手。きてくれてありがとう、とか言ってた。
日本のみなさんごめんなさい、私は、「日本に来てください」とか、「日本にはいつ来るの?」とか言わなきゃいけなかった。ピョルさんとkoyumiさんがアダムを呼んだように。

He lead us and turned the corner, I saw the long line for meeting Kris.
Steve was saying to Lizzie " I'm cutting the line" and suddenly Kris was in front of us.
Kris said hello to all of us and did shake-hand saying "Thank you for coming".
I coulnt say nothing. I'm sorry to Japanese fellow. I should say "please come to Japan"


娘と写真をとって、クリスは嵐のように去っていった。いや、嵐じゃないな、私達が何もいわなかったから。クリストいい、アンドリューといい、家族全員にきちんと挨拶していく。
WS000087.jpg
後ろにだーーーっと続いている列に割り込むの写真。ぽっかーん の娘。あれ?クリスって、すっごく顔が小さいかも!!!
We cut the long line. My girl was expressionless again. Kris's face is very small!!!

スティーブは、クリスにあわせて任務完了という感じに見えた。私は焦って、私達はアンドリューの大ファンで、と言うが、Rの発音が悪くて伝わらない。伝わらなかったけど、バンドにもあわせるつもりだったのか、それとも、アンドリューが自発的に来たのか、、いまとなってはわからない。
一生懸命アンドリューアンドリューと、スティーブに話しかけている間に、夫が「来た来た来た!」と言った。
アンドリューとのストーリーはこちらで

I asked Steve to bring Andrew. But I can't pronounce R of Andrew, probably he didn't understand what I said but Andrew finally came!
Meeting Andrew story is here.

アンドリューも家族にきちんと挨拶する(息子も含め)それでもって、そうだ、ピックをあげるんだったね、と言って、私、娘、息子にくれる。夫には、「すいません、もうなくなっちゃって」と、とても、礼儀正しいアンドリュー。(私はインターネット辞書がないと、英語しゃべれないから会ったら黙ってピックを頂戴、と言ってあった)
あ、そうだ。サインももらった。
ツーショットの写真も取ったんだけど、私目をつぶってしまった。。。。でも、写真ないと、なんでないんだろうって感じだから、載せるか、。。なんか、しかも、太ってみえる。。??

Andrew said hello to all of us same as Kris.
And gave us picks. me, my girl, my son. Said to my husband "I'm sorry there is no more pick." very polite.(I had said to him by e-mail that "I couldn't speak English without internet translation so please give me a pick without no word if we meet".

I closed my eyes.... fail!!
WS000083_20100824081602.jpg


次はトーレス。トーレスは、スティーブが呼んでくれた。
「ほら、言ってたあの子だよ!」というと、トーレスが輝く笑顔で「君か!すごいな!」といいながらハイタッチ
トーレスはとにかくさわやか。
やはりサインをもらおうと、用意したバンド全員の写真をだすと、トーレスがアンドリューの影にかくれていて
「僕ここに書くの?隠れちゃってるけど、、」と言われ、しまった!!とあわててもう一枚のバンドの写真にサインしてもらう。
グラスヒートの新曲好きよと言う。
あと写真を撮って、さっさと退散。やっぱ、アンドリューは特別長かった(^_^)
WS000081.jpg


Next Torres
Torres's smile and hair was shining. He did high-touch with my girlsaying "you awesome!"
I told him I loved his new song.

ライランドとケールにも会いたかったけど、列を割り込んでいるわけだし、アンドリューを長い時間引き止めたきがしたので、遠慮しちゃった。

I wanted to meet Ryland and Cale also but I hesitated to say it because we cut the line and I took much time with Andrew.

そしてRVパークに帰った。またもや迷って迷って。(1000マイル走った。一筆書きでいくと600マイル程度の旅程なのに、高速道路で何度も迷ったのが、痛い。)
次の朝は、RVを返す日で、中を綺麗にしなきゃいけなかった。みんなが寝ている間、掃除した。(カーテンで2部屋に影響ないままリビング部分で行動できるのだ、広いぞ!)
そんな中で思い出しては、笑顔が浮かんでしまうのをとめられなかった。

We went back to RV park. Again lost lost lost LOL
In the early next morning, we had to drop off our RV with cleaning inside. I didn't sleep and cleaned it during my family was sleeping. :)
But I couldn't wipe smile on my face reminding happy memory.

娘もすごく幸せ。
クリスのピックを2つ、アンドリューのを3つ、ケールのを1つ手に入れて、
家に帰るまでずーっと持とうとしてた。(なくされると困るので、取り上げて私が保管したけど、途中何度も「見せて」と言われる)
そして、家につくやいなや、ギターを弾き、クリスのピックが一番使いやすい、と言った。アンドリューのは難しいって。

My daughter was very happy also.
She got 2 kris' , 3 Andrew's and 1 Cale's picks
She hold them all the way to home. ( I worried she lost them)
And as soon as we reached home, played guitar using all picks.
She said Kris' pick was the most easy to play and Andrew's was difficult for her.

私は英語をもっと、勉強しなければ!!!

I must learn English more!!!!

横から見ると、このでかさ!

Miami concert

私がアンドリューのビデオばっかり見ていたので、娘はギターに興味をもった。
ギターを欲しがったので、去年のサンタクロースからのプレゼントにした。

Because I had been watching Andrew's video all the time,
My daughter began to be interested in guitar.
She wanted a guitar. I and my husband decided that her present for Christmas was guitar.

その後は、驚くことばかり

After that, amazing story.

3ヵ月後、彼女はアダムランバートの前でWWFMを弾いた

Three monthes later, she played whataya want from me In front of real Adam Lambert.
playinfrontofadam_convert_20100825065347.jpg

そしてまた驚くべきことが

And now amazing story again.

この旅行の準備をしている時に、彼女にAWMを弾かせたビデオを撮ろうとひらめいた。
WWFMの時と同じように弾き方を調べて教えた。
でもかぜを弾いてしまって、練習があまりできなかった。計画していた状態までもっていけなかった。

Preparing this trip, an idea happened to my head "make video she plays alright with me".
I studied how to play AWM and told her same as WWFM
uNfortunately because she caught cold, practice was not enough. I couldn't catch up my plan.

AWMのさびの部分を3回弾いたビデオを撮って、アップロードした。

I took a short video she played AWM only three lines and uploaded it.

Ritzちゃんが、そのビデオをスティーブに教えてくれた。
スティーブが彼女に興味をもって、私たちをアンドリューに合わせてくれそうな感じだった。
英語ができないから、いまいち確信はもてなかったんだけど。

My best friend Ritz shouted out to Steve about my daughter.
Steve was interested in her, and he seemed to make us meet Andrew.
I was not sure because I couldn't English and I didn't understand this situation completely.

でもこの旅行のはじめに悲劇が起きた。iPhoneがRVの電気コンセントにつないだら壊れたのだ。
インターネットなしでは、スティーブやアンドリューに連絡が取れない。
急遽ウォルマートで携帯電話を購入する。

But a tragedy happened at the beginning of this trip. My iPhone was broken by rv electric outlet.
Without Internet, I can't communicate Steve and Andrew!!
I bought walmart cell phone.

キャンピングカーの生活はトラブルの連続想像以上に過酷だった。

Rv life was very ordeal for us
WS000084.jpg

(1)アイフォンが壊れる。
アイフォンのGPSを使ったナビゲーション能力を見て、油断した。テニスコートの位置やいきたいレストラン情報もプリントせず、アイフォンだよりだった。すべてロスト。
(2)レンタル会社が、寝具3人分を貸し忘れる。アイフォンが壊れたハートブレイクの初日、夜に、もらった寝具のビニールをあけると、巨大な枕がぽろり、、、、、この大きなパックは一人分。。。!!!???エアコン消すと暑い、付けると3人が断続的に寒い。つらい夜をすごす
(3)インターネットはウォルマート電話で、寝具もウォルマートで買ってトラブル解決。海の横のRVパークで、あー、やっとバカンスと思いきや、、夜中に電気供給が止まる。
神よ(無心論者だけど)、私たちを見て、試練を与えているのか、、、本当にそう思った。
(4)アメリカはでかいから、キャンピングカーでどこでもいけると思ったが(マイアミ都会以外)、都会じゃなくても流行のレストランなんかは行けない。水道電気下水接続しちゃうと面倒で、結局自炊しちゃう。。
(5)気づくと、料理して、皿あらって、洗濯して、、、家にいるより働いてた
(6)ホテルと違って、RVパークの管理人は5時にはいなくなる。頼れない。。。地域情報聞きたいのに、、
(7)テニスコートの位置もわからずテニスの練習ができなかった。(25日に試合がひかえているからテニスの練習はマストだった)
(8)息子はふてくされ、キャンピングカーの中でほとんど寝てた。海も楽しまず、プールも楽しまず。これが一番わたしには キツカッタ。
(9)マイアミコンサートの日、午前中フォートローダデールのビーチに行く。RVパークの管理人に聞いた駐車場に停めたつもりが間違えていて、$50罰金を取られる。

(1)iPhone was broken,
(2)The rv rental company forgot to give us 3 beddings. ( only one blanket pillow sheets....)
(3)electric stopped at midnight and fixed with manual....
(4)we couldn't go where we wanted to go without extra car.
(5) every day cooking and dishing washing clothes... I and my husband were working harder than in Japan.
(6) rv park manager is only from 9-5. I couldn't gather information.
(7) couldn't go tennis court for my son's practice(his upcoming match will be 25th in Japan) because I put tennis court information on broken iPhone.

(8) my son was dissapointed with this trip and was sleeping almost of the day. He didn't enjoy sea or pool.... This was the most hard for me
(9) at Miami concert day, we went the FortLauderdale beach. We thought we parked our RV where RV park manegaer told us, but we parked wrong place and got parking violation $50.

マイアミのコンサート:
カーナビは30分のドライブと言ったけど、交通渋滞と、いつもながらの迷子迷子、、で、90分かかった。
25フィートの車を停めるのにAAAの前のパーキングの人間と交渉。
会場についたのは8;15分。ご飯も食べてない!!クリスの前の女性のオープニングが始まってた。

Miami concert:
Car navi said it would be 30min trip but traffic jam and be lost... It took us 90 min.
negotiation with parking man to park 25 feets rv.
I reached at the venue at 8:15.( during a female opening)

私はスタッフにどこが窓口が聞いて、走って走って走った。
窓口で聞くも、私の名前はない、娘の名前もない。
家族を巻き込んで、行きたがらなかった息子を巻き込んで、私は何を期待していたんだろう。
もう泣きたい気分でいっぱいだった。
でも、次の日スティーブに聞いて、知る。
夫の名前+他3人さま という形で私たち4人のチケットはあったのだ。
夫の名前を言う前に、私は、泣きそうになって、諦めてしまったのだ。
なんて、お馬鹿な私。。。!!!!


I asked a stuff where was will call and ran ran ran.
But my name wasn't on the list, my daughter either.
I was in the mood for crying.
( i knew the next day that my husband's name+3 was on the list.
I gave up before saying husband name.
What a stupid am I...!!!!

この旅行は、いまだかつてなく、つらい旅行だった。
うかつな私にうかつな夫。今までふらり旅で、トラブルがあっても、笑い飛ばせる程度だったけど、
子どもがつまらなそうなのが、ほんとにつらい。
そして、窓口でチケットをゲットするのに奮闘するエネルギーがなくなっていた、
なんて、馬鹿馬鹿馬鹿

This trip was too tough for me. I didn't have energy to continue to struggle.
Stupid stupid stupid

いつもは楽観的なのに、すごい悲観的な人間になっていた。

I am a optimist usually. But at this time I was a pessimist.

自分達の席に座った、私は5列目の右端。他の家族は芝生席。

We sat down our own seat, it means I'm 5th row on the right edge and my family on lawn.
WS000085.jpg
芝生席


クリスアレンバンドが出てきた。
アンドリューに手を振ると、笑顔が返ってきた。確実に彼は私のことに気づいたと思う。
(9月21日後述:このときのアンドリューの笑顔。彼の笑顔で時折見られる「蛙」みたいな笑顔だった。彼って、光の加減や角度によってはすっごいハンサムなのに、動きや表情が「ジョディ・フォスターのネル」みたいって思う。純粋なせいか、ださーい素朴な感じ。今、久しぶりにジョーダン・プルーイットとのYOUTUBE見て、最後に、えへへって笑う顔。あれ、あれ!!!私だって、わかって、あの顔したんだ!!と、勝手に幸せになる人。
今アンドリューがハンサムって言われるの、否定しないけど、私はずっとさえないオタクとして愛してた。2月のマニラコンファレンスであれ?まじめな顔するとハンサム??って思って、3月のクリスと一緒のアコースティックライブで、毛糸の帽子かぶった写真で、彼はハンサムなんだって、初めて認められた。(ずっとオタクとして愛してたから))

Kris Allen band came out.
I waved Andrew and he smiled at me. I was sure he recognized me.

コンサートの間、ずっとアンドリューを見てた。

I was watching Andrew all the time during concert.

WAOMFの時、クリスが私を指さした。クリスのことみてなかったので、レスポンスが遅れた。クリスは目が悪いのよね。私が見てないこと気づけなかったんだと思う。

During waomf Kris Pointed at me. I was late to response it because I didn't watch Kris. I think Kris has week eyesight. ( sometime he wears glasses)

コンサートが始まる直前は、何故私は家族を巻き込んでこんなシチュエーションを招いてまでここにいるんだって思ってた。でも、クリスアレンバンドがそんな苦い気持ちを吹き飛ばしてくれた。本当にすばらしいコンサート

Just before the concert, I thought why I was here with involving my family to tough situation.
Kris Allen band brew away such a bitter feeling. Really really really great sound.

アンドリュー側にいたんだけど、IIOのソロなんかは真ん中にいって、クリスと向き合っちゃう。指の動きを見られなかった。ああ、スティーブが用意してくれたいい席にすわっていたら。。。。なんてお馬鹿な私。

I was on the Andrew side, but he went to center when IIO solo. I couldn't watch his finger job.
Ah I wish I had watched it on the seat treated by Steve. Stupid stupid stupid am I.

WS000086.jpg
息子が遠い芝生席からアンドリューを取ってくれていた。うう、いい席に座っていれば、いい写真ごろごろだっただろうなー。私は警備員に撮影止められました。My son took Andrew's photo from lawn. If we sat down good seat, we could take excellent pics.....

マルーン5が始まる前に、RVパークに帰った。

We went back to RV park after KAB finished. ( didn't watch maroon5)

もし、スティーブが用意した席に座っていたら、彼は私たちを見つけて、この日にKAB達に会えたのかな??

If I was on the Steve seat, he found us and could meet KAB this day....

サンディエゴショーのリキャップ

http://spangel-kat.livejournal.com/28292.html#cutid1
このページから消えちゃうといけないので、本文コピー&ペースト

2回目のショーのおしっこ事件のとき、著者はトイレに行っていたそうで(さすがお酒の出るテーブルのあるショー)
クリスが「おしっこいってくる!」とIIOの最中に言ったのは聞き逃したそう。
トイレから出た著者が見たのは、ジップをおろしながらすごく早く走って来る小さなクリス。
そして、ものすごく、早かったそうです。手を洗ったかどうか、疑わしいらしい。

Kris Allen - Anthology, San Diego (both shows) - 7/25/2010

I've seen Kris many times already, but these two shows combined is the best yet and the most epic in terms of performance and banter and just crazy antics. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about already. Between the two shows, he did 29 songs and just the whole weekend feels like a dream (and not just b/c I blacked out during parts of it).

First Show

My friend and I got there around 6 so we weren't seated too close to the stage and we were off to the side, but the view was still awesome. Food was good, we had a shitload of few cocktails. These minimum food and beverage requirements kill me, I swear. Anyways, Torres' band Grass Heat opened. They were awesome sauce omg. I enjoyed Torres' voice quite a bit and I love their bluesy rock vibe. They have a CD coming out in September. I am so on that shit. Oh and some interesting information: Torres learned the bass a few years ago but was actually a guitar player to begin with and he drinks Coronas on stage. I like him. A lot.

Then Kris came on and proceeded to melt my face off for the next 4-5 hours. It really did just feel like one really long show. He sounded amazing and the acoustics in this venue are just A+. I've heard all the songs he did except two: Don't Look Back in Anger and I Need to Know. DLBIA was fun and I sang along, loudly, but it's not my favorite thing of his. It's a fun cover, but not very original. The fake accent he takes on just cracks me up (seriously, Kris, you're not British wtf lol). He does INTK in the encore and I freaked the fuck out. I was not a big fan of this arrangement when I saw it on video before, but live omg it was like an out of body experience. These girls behind me kept talking tho and I wanted to punch them in the face (nevermind that my drunk ass proceeded to talk through the second show...shuttup).

All in all, a great show. Except the part where Kris threw a guitar pick at my head. I was at least 30-40 feet from the stage, sitting down, so I don't know how that even happened lol. It hurt. I'm suing.

So after the first show ended, everyone proceeded outside to line up for the second show lol. This is when I met Christina at the front of the line and she graciously let me cut her. Thank you, Christina!!!!! She is adorable and super nice :D

Second Show
My friend and I got awesome seats this time. To the right of the stage, but right up front. We got a good view and we were right next to the restroom, which will later prove to be a very very very good thing. So my friend and I had a shitload again of few more cocktails. I might have blacked out during parts of the second show and my friend actually doesn't remember any of it, including Kris calling her old, singing happy bday to her, and coming over to our table to sing to her when he jumped off the stage during a song. I do remember all the epic parts tho so I will share those.

Maybe and BiB made me speechless as always. He did Send Me All Your Angels (first time with the full band, I think) and I fucking loved it. The live arrangement is so so good and it was more moody and emo, almost, and Kris sounded so tortured and just awesome on it. And yes, he did Paranoid Android which everyone freaked out about. It's not a secret I do not like this cover, but I've learned to respect it. The band sounds awesome doing it and it can stay if only because I love watching the crowd freak out over it.

So this is where my night gets fuzzy lmao. My friend was throwing up in the bathroom throughout the second set and managed to get picked up by a girl in the restroom while doing so. She was cute and ended up sitting with us through the second half of the show. I think she cozied up to her b/c we had good seats but she actually asked her for her phone number, so maybe she is interested. Who knew Kris concerts would be the perfect place for picking up people in the restroom.

Anyways...my friend's bday is in a few days so I yelled it out during the show, very loudly and repeatedly lol. He asked my friend how old she is (26) and then proceeded to tell her she's old lmao. He did sing her happy birthday tho, which I have on vid.

The show just gets more and more ridiculous from there. As everyone knows, he stops the band in the middle of Is It Over so he can go pee. OMG, what are you, kris allen?!!! It's actually funny because I had gotten up to use the restroom when IIO started so I actually missed him saying "I gotta pee" but the first thing i see when I come out of the restroom is Kris zipping by me and I'm like 'wtf is going on?! where is kris going?!'. and for a tiny guy, he can run really fast. People proceeded to tell me he was headed for the restroom and I laughed my ass off through the rest of the song. He comes back on stage, does a double fist pump, and picks up where he left off. Oh, Kris, please stop making me love you more. Two thoughts went through my mind after the song ended: 'damn, kris can pee really fast; and 'shit, i hope he washed his hands'

I don't know if there is vid of this, but he and ET had a conversation during the set. I actually don't remember the nature of the conversation but I remember laughing a lot lol. if I didn't know better, i swear he was drunk or something that's how ridiculous he was lol. He actually jumped off the stage at one point and started going around the tables and he came to ours and touched my friend and sang to her for like 2 seconds. I was so fucking jealous and she doesn't even remember any of this! smh

So the show ends and we're waiting for the encore. I was expecting FS and CT since he did INTK in the first show encore. But nope. Kris has to shatter all my expectations. He comes out with just him and the guitar. And I'm like freaking out b/c I'm thinking "omg, is this a new song? omg omg omgomg waaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?". and dude, it was magical in there. it was so quiet you can hear a pin drop as he's strumming and picking notes on his guitar. once I realize it's TMYFML, I might have let out an ungodly squeal of delight idek. I don't really remember what embarrassing noises / words came out of my mouth. Or maybe I was just speechless in awe. Just imagine: Kris. Guitar. 5 feet away from me. Singing To Make You Feel My Fucking Love. I died. It was just incredible. if you haven't watched the vids, do it now. It was seriously magical.

He then proceeds to melt me further by doing FS and CT and I am just besotted. Marry me, Kris. Please?

The rest of the night gets a little crazy for me lol. People line up to meet him after the show but my friend and I were in no condition to meet him. I didn't want my friend to throw up all over him. Altho that might have forced him to take off his shirt...hmmm....

Anyways, so I grab my friend and we leave but we get lost trying to find our car and ended up walking in circles and back at the front of the venue, where kris' bus is parked. I decide to stay there to maybe catch the band and kris leaving, but my drunk ass friend starts molesting the furniture of the venue and one of the waitresses came out to shoo us away. Dammit. Probably for the best, though, since we probably would've just been scary drunks to kris if we attempted to speak to him.

Then I proceeded to get lost trying to find our hotel lol. I couldn't find the freeway omg, but I did see Katy walking towards the bus the fifth time I passed the venue, driving in circles. LOL

I finally find our way back to the hotel and then just passed out on the bed. We were both insanely hungover in the morning and for the rest of the day. FML.

Despite the major hangover and possibly embarrssing myself during the second show, this was a fucking epic weekend and I just want to follow Kris around to go to his shows. He is a fucking animal and I just LOVE watching him on stage. I roll my eyes sometimes when I hear people say 'Kris was born to do this', but the more I see him live the more I really think this is true. He's just a natural on stage and it's obvious he LOVES doing this. I'm just...this recap really doesn't do the show justice. BEST. SHOW. YET.

I will now rewatch all the vids available to see if I can hear myself shouting ungodly things at him. Oh, btw, when I read tweets about this girl who wouldn't shut up when he started TMYFML I freaked out and thought 'oh shit, was that me?!' lol. I checked the vid tho and it is definitely not me. I swear. Seriously. Don't kill me.

もうひとつ(ファーストショーのみ)
http://www.kristogether.com/forum/tours-shows/topic267.html#p37145

Because I am insane and TL;DR and also extremely exhausted, I'm gonna split up the SD recaps for the first and second shows. I fear otherwise that the block of text will become animated and leap out of your computer screens and clobber you over the head. So, really, I'm just thinking about your safety here. All my usual disclaimers apply. If you don't know my usual disclaimers, just assume anything that's out of place or ambiguous or left out has been explained in a disclaimer at some point.

After talking to the band on Thursday, I was kind of ridiculously hyped for the show. (Also? Embarrassed a bit given that we had to answer the question "oh! Which show are you going to?" four times over. Whatever, it was all worth it in the end. Mostly.) And the show kinda ended up living up to all expectation. I guess I just sorta jumped the gun and led with the conclusion. Backing up like yeaaah...

The day started normally enough: watched Queenie rap every word of "The Humpty Dance" (every. single. word), saw a 4' tall Mad Hatter and a few dozen imitation light sabers, and jammed out to five hours of 90s R&B. Basically your average day give or take a couple Klingon costumes. Doors opened at 5:30 and we got to the venue at not all that long after that. The venue was absolutely terrible though. I mean, what? They couldn't fit all 312 of us at one table? How dare they! So we ended up a little split up, which was probably for the best because I think all that flail combined at one table would've ended up throwing the universe backwards in time and that would be no fun because then there would be no more creationism vs. evolution debate. And I couldn't live in such a world. In all seriousness, the venue was absolutely fantastic as I'm sure the tweets have conveyed. It was pretty small and the different stories actually worked well, as pretty much every seat was close to the stage. (The bar area in the back was a little ways away but the sound was still really awesome throughout the entire venue.)

For the first show, we were seated just a few tables back from the stage towards Andrew's side (although the stage was kind of tiny so we were really in the middle). We sat down and were treated to the greatest hits of Sheryl Crow and Seal on the big screen. Thinking back, with that start, how could the night have been anything but epic? Of course this was followed by what I'm pretty sure was a blown-up Youtube video of Taylor Hick aurally assaulting us with his live performance of "Do I Make You Proud" from Idol. Anthology was really pushing the Taylor Hicks thing at us all night. (He's playing a show there for them at some point later that I'm just so crushed I'm not going to be able to see. BRB cutting myself, crying my eyes out, etc.) And Everclear was thrown into the mix somehow. I know, I know what you're all thinking. "Everclear and Taylor Hicks?!? But my oh my, just how ever could Kris follow up those acts?" Well you know what? He did. He somehow managed to take a step and climb that mountain so you can all breathe now, despite how hard that my be to believe.

Alrighty then, so this band called Grass Heat took the stage first. They had this really truly sick lead singer/bass player and I was just thinking to myself, "man, if only Kris's band could get him to replace their sorry ass bass player..." Okay, sorry for the lame rehashed joke but I thought it sort of worked the first time on Twitter and it wouldn't be me if I didn't pound the joke six feet under (and mix up a few metaphors while doing so). For those who aren't in the know, Torres is the lead singer/bass player (odd combo) for the Grass Heat. It was like bizarro world watching them though. First of all, Jesus is in the band. And by Jesus I mean the drummer who looks more like Jesus than Torres does. Already, my mind was shot six ways to Sunday. Torres looked to be the youngest member of the band by a good 15 years, too. Torres was his usual bouncy, sway-y self and had all his usual energy. Their songs were sort of a blues-rock-funk sound that were generally good but went on about two minutes past their "best before" date. They've got one song that sounds a heckuva lot like "Is It Over" but without all the adlibs and the awesome, really. I only mention this because I was tweeting "this song sounds like Is It Over" just as someone else at the table was saying "this song sounds like Is It Over." ... after telling this detail, it was probably one of those things where you had to be there. Pretend those last couple sentences don't exist because you're not getting the twenty seconds of your life back. (Hm. It probably did not take you twenty seconds to read those sentences. I apologize for any inadvertent insults to your reading abilities. You know what? I could have solved all this ridiculousness by just deleting the sentences after I had realized they were less interesting typed out. But then you guys wouldn't get the insight into my warped stream of consciousness. Haha. Trampolines.)

After that, Kris came on and proceeded to blow my mind for the next five hours or so. He kicked off the show with CSA which, I think, is his best opener. (omg SURPRISE! Taks just used "best" to describe CSA! Bet you never saw that one coming. What crazy hijinks will he come up with next?) It's just the sans-instrument stage prowling that elevates the energy level. Kris kept going to the edge of the stage during CSA (and actually throughout both of his sets) and I was pretty sure he was going to fall off at some point. He didn't, much to my disappointment. (We would have to get our cheap laughs in at [literal] bathroom humor, instead.) The intro to Heartless will never not be stunning (eat it, 4th grade English teacher). I think it was at this point that two... older women (I'm not ageist, I just play one on TV) went up to the stage and started dancing. Awkwardly. While everyone was seated because, y'know, we were trying to enjoy the show and have no screws loose. I laughed. Another couple followed their lead and started like slow dancing to Heartless because whenever I hear the newest Kanye jam I just think "darnit, I'm so sad I don't have m'lady with me to dance with." They left during WAOMF after a few people had expressed their opinions on the situation. WAOMF is fun and cool and "sometimes love gets lost in translation yeaaaaah HUH HUH" with accompanying raise-the-roof moves makes for the absolute best sing along ever. You should try it out some time. In fact, go watch a youtube video right now and do it. I promise you, you will be a better person afterward.

Kris praised the San Diego crowd before Red Guitar (a trend that would continue throughout the night). And with good reason, they were awesome. Obviously, everyone was there for Kris so people were feelin' it and the vibe was awesomesauce. I don't really know the right adjectives to use here, but I was pleased with the crowd. And it's all about me in the end.

The stage lighting was good. However, it became GREAT when the like crazy multi-colored spotlights started flying around stage and the wall started lighting up different colors. Not entirely sure what mood it conveyed, but if I had to guess I'd say 70s-disco-with-just-a-splash-of-seizure. (I was a tad distracted by it. Luckily, the crazy spotlight dealie was not a permanent setting.)

Kris did some exaggerated headbanging (well, exaggerated by most people's standards, I'd assume. To me, it seemed a tad tepid) during the sing along portion of AWM. Alright, then he went into "Don't Look Back In Anger" and I actually laughed out loud. So, I sort of loved the soundcheck video we have of that song and have listened to the mp3 a billion times because, um, there's nothing better in life than Kris singing in some messed up faux-British accent. And hearing it on the first few notes of that song live was just awesome. Of course, as with all things Kris, I ended up loving the entire song non-ironically. I don't know if the accent went away or if I got used to it or something entirely different, but yeah, I was rocking out by the end. Uh, next up was SMAYA, another one I hadn't seen before. It was similarly more awesome than I expected. Not a particular fan of the studio version of the song, but I do enjoy the band's arrangement a lot. It's all that and a bag of chips. I'm attempting to recall my thoughts on the song but do not remember it at all. So either it was so amazing that it blew my mind or so boring that I fell asleep. I did not get any linguine on my face last night, so I'm going to assume I didn't fall asleep face first into my dinner and thus that it was not boring. After SMAYA, Kris said... something. Not entirely sure what, but he referenced some sort of video somehow and then said, "and Chris [Daughtry] would see it, too. He's a Youtube watcher. He texted me, 'that performance was great' about a video he'd seen on Youtube."

After Lifetime, a strap on Cale's guitar broke (I think, or like, it fell off his shoulder) and the guitar fell on the ground while Kris was bantering. Kris looked back and asked what happened. Cale had the "uhh woops, THAT DIDNT JUST HAPPEN" look on his face (it's a look, Google it) and told him "nothing happened... Anyone know a joke?" It was a very pitiful distraction attempt. Kris then mentioned something about suing Cale and Cale was all, "the floor caught it!" to which Kris responded, "Thank God the floor was there. The nice, hard floor." It was amusing. MITM & IIO are still amazing. Kris's voice is sick on both of them. I physically cannot stop myself from singing along at the top of my lungs to MITM. Kris can hold notes longer than I can. LLWD is really awesome because, while not everyone there knew all his songs, EVERYONE was singing along to all of LLWD. It's totally awesome to see. People started crowding up the stage at this point and dancing. (The guy behind me suggested that I do the same. I think he was annoyed with my off key singing and anti-rhythmic flailing. Screw you, guy. I'll dance party in my chair if I want to.) At one point during LLWD, Kris went over to the keyboard and starting jamming on it with Cale. I think they were both having a little too much fun.

So Kris and the band leave the stage after LLWD, we're all chilling out waiting for the encore, people are screaming their heads off and I'm sitting back sippin' on my coke thinking about how I'm so cool because I'm like totally ready for this encore and I know what's going down like that. And then Steve (oh speaking of Steve, he was playing guitar during DLBIA behind a curtain) moves Kris's mic over to the keyboard and the lightbulb goes off in my head and the realization that OMG IM ABOUT TO HEAR INTK happens. Aannnnddd he came back and I was dead. Some girl thought it'd be a cool idea to yell "YOU'RE HOT!" just as he was starting and honestly if you had given me a button that I could press that would have ejected her seat into a tank of piranha's I would've pressed it in a second. (But only if I could do so with a button. A lever or combination lock or something would have been too much work.) He sounded amazing and looked so into it and it builds perfectly and I was dying. DYING. Stunned. Dazed. Mouth-agape-looking-like-a-crazy-person. I was so gone that by the time I had realized what was going on he was half way through "Come Together," my hand was in a glass of water and I had "I'm lame" written in Sharpie on my forehead.

Then show #1 was over and I realized THERE WAS AN ENTIRE SET STILL TO COME.

And as such, there's an entire recap still to come.

今回も激しかったらしい。
Kris Allen fans are vicious fuckers! I nearly got my throat slashed when he threw the set list and it hit me.
クリスアレンのファンは大ばか者。彼がセットリストを投げて、俺に当たったとき、喉をさくっと切られそうだったよ。(他のファンが奪いあいしたんでしょうね)
