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.

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.
Life On The Moon
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:

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
