David Cook 5/24/09 Toads Place New Haven, CT

David Cook hit the stage about 10, but it seemed like they were running late. Since we were sitting by the sound booth, the set list went up a little early so I was able to send out a tweet with the songs and then follow along throughout the show.

Being off to the side was actually good because not too many people were being pushy. If the lady like 2-3 people in front of me brushed her hair down I would have been able to see him fine like 90% of the show LOL Before the encore the place cleared out a TON so I was able to see clearly for the encore.

I loved the “new” song souvenir (he said it was written for the album but didnt make the cut) and his cover of little lies were great too.

He was talking about how he didnt realize Yale was here and he walked around and wouldn’t you know they graduated today and he was all impressed and that It took him 5 yrs to get through school and look where the degree got him lol

And then he said how he was talking and he got hit in the leg with gum, and it happened the night before too and he wanted to know if it meant something and then smelled his breath and was like.. i dont know. It is a secret joke Im not in on? Does the gum represent something else? and then he was like.. and I realize now Im going to be pelted by gum for the next week.

Setlist and photos under the cut!

I couldnt really get any pics of the band – couldnt see the drummer at all and the other guys were pretty much blocked by tall guys 🙁 But at least i could see david! that was the important part

David Cook canceled

The David Cook show at Southern Connecticut State University couldn’t be rescheduled before the end of the semester so refunds are now being issued. The school is still looking to reschedule for the Fall semester so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

In the meantime, David has scheduled a show at the legendary Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT for May 24. Tickets for that show went on sale yesterday and while they were not the bargain price of $2 that the SCSU show were, it should still be worth it.

I attended the Seal show last night at Foxwoods MGM Grand Casino – expect a review and pictures later tonight or tomorrow evening. A scrapbook post is also long over due and should be coming soon!

David Cook show Canceled

David’s Official site notes that this weeks David Cook concert that I was going to has been canceled. I am very bummed but I hope that whatever family matters David has to deal with is nothing too terrible, and that the show will be rescheduled at a later date.

Do The Wright Thing Gala 11/12/08

Upon arriving at the Hard Rock, our IDs were checked and tickets were taken. They were replaced with a wristband. I was too thrilled about that but luckily I had scanned it when the tickets had arrived.

At 6pm we were let in and down 2 flights of stairs where we saw Z100’s Carolina on the red carpet (though I’m still not sure who she was talking with)

We headed to the restaurant area which was absolutely packed with people and seats were at a minimum. At 7pm we headed to where David Cook’s concert would be and settled in to our spot on the floor behind the VIP/MVP area.

At 7:30 Carolina came out and then she introduced David Wright who thanked us all for coming and auctioned off some items. David introduced David Cook who came out to say hello before his set. David Wright spoke about how David Cook played for free so that the money would go to the David Wright foundation. David Cook teased that he expected that his season tickets were in the mail.

David Wright mentioned that former Mets Joe McEwing and Howard Johnson were there as well as Washington National’s 3rd baseman Ryan Zimmerman (who grew up playing baseball with David) I’m not sure I’d have recognized any of them in street clothes though!

Shortly after the auctions wrapped up, David Cook came out to play his set.
Mr Sensitive
Life On The Moon
Light On
(encore) Bar-Ba-Sol

We hung around for a bit longer to see if we’d catch a glimpse of anyone, but didn’t. But all in all it was still a fun night! Photos and video of David Cook getting David Wright to put on GUYLINER! After the cut.

The first rule of being a rock star – is you have to wear guyliner:

American Idols Live September 6

The Idols did not disappoint! Even Kristy Lee Cook, who was mediocre at best on the show, found her niche and actually made the songs she sang sound decent!

I left the show impressed and knew that I would absolutely have to see David Cook again – even if it meant I had to fly to the moon to do it. He was THAT good. I also wouldn’t mind checking out Michael Johns again either.

The performers were:
Chickezie, Ramile Malluby, Michael Johns, Carly Smithson, Kristy Lee Cook, Brooke White, Jason Castro, Syesha Mercado, David Archuletta, David Cook
