12/17 Atlanta GA

Recommended Posts

Tonight's concert is in the Atlanta Civic Center.

From the CV: To the eye place is full - floor and almost all of balcony - though the box office is now reporting 2000 of 4500 - ticketmaster reported almost sold out. Web says it seats 3500. So discrepancies.

Oh well right now...I just hope he makes more than 2000...I think that is what he is averages.

I better turn on my Itunes...I am hoping we hear from kandre Or Couhie on the cellstream.

I am not getting anything from the ch cellstream yet...

we are on from CH...

Someone who knows the promoter said they only sold 2600...

but the bottom is packed and the sides are packed and of the top tier 30 to 40% packed

the cellcerter thinks it is more than 2600...

the usualy demographic though there seem to be more young men around.

The CV celllcerter was talking to a mother / daughter duo that had not seen Clay live since the AI tour. Are they in for a surprise!

Some discussion about the fit of Clay's pants - the cellcerter and moderator trying very hard not to venture into the area of smut. :P

georgiaclay, the cellcerters were admiring William Joseph's pants, which lead to some discussion of Clay's pants.

The opening recording on now.

I was buffering and missed the announcement, but apparently, Gregory is sick tonight and will not be in the show.

This will be interesting...

Clay's voice sounds soft...I don;t know if this is just the stream...

I finally get to hear an entire cellcert...and then Gregory is sick. Wah.

Seriously, I hope he's OK. I also feel very NERVOUS about this, and how it will affect the performers.

Break a leg, gang.

I'm afraid to plug in my headphones, because the volume on the CV stream is fluctuating so much. Either whispering or screaming.

MCWL right now. Anxiously waiting for the opening dialog...

The dialog is a bit softer but I don;t know if its jsut the volume of the cellcert...

it seems Beverly is carrying most of the conversation. I think they cut down a bit of the boys dialog but there were still a bit of laughter from the audience.

From CB:

lost the stream.....there we go....could be interesting tonight..

I can hear another child's voice...sounds younger than Gregory....can't hear what he is saying very well.....

It must be going over well, I can hear the audience chuckling at all the right places!!

Yeah, I couldn't decipher too much of the dialog, but Beverly seemed to be carrying it.

Sleigh Ride now. Pop pop pop.

I hope someone is running around the buses spraying Lysol on all the surfaces. It's bad enough that the student is sick, we can't afford to have the teacher be under the weather.

Just gotta say...I love this version of Jingle Bells. Love. LOVE.

Also, I was freaked the other day...I heard Michael W. Smith do this exact version on the radio! Must be where Clay heard it...

Love this jazz section...they all get into it so much.

Again, the sound quality is poor, but it sounds like Allison is doing most of the lines tonight, with the little boy only being required to react. I bet they were sweating bullets this afternoon...

Season for Romance, he gives an unexpected gift. It'll get you if you give it half a chance. Andy riffing on the guitar,

Ok...did Clay just screw up the words to Season of Romance?

Not too sure...the sound is not too loud...so everything sounds so tentative...

From Cb:

Time for a little romance......such a beautiful memory for Beverly.....the voice sounds perfect tonight.....

---

new little guy sounds like he is doing fine.. voice not as strong a gregory's but good..bev talking.. boy you know clay is standing ther watching intensly...crowd chuckles..music starting..tiem for CS...and the voice appears. .soft and powerful.. sailing thru the air..so mellow and tender..as he inhales each breath of air.. he holds it just for a few seconds.. then opens his mouth and lets his tongue and lips propell it through out the venue.. just beautiful..sound not to great tonight.. sounds far off.. but the massive vocal of the man just roar through.. this is the most gentel I have ever heard him sing this.. just blood curling chilling ...gets under your skin and ripples through out your body.. season for romance.. whow what passion... what inter beauty he shows singing this.. and the crowd applaudes....

Christmas Waltz -- another favorite. I bet the kid stays on Beverly's feet much more...unless the kid knows how to waltz. Who knows?

I think this cellcert is pretty clear this evening.

Hee. Looks like the CB is all about the voice, and the CV chat is still going on the about the subject of Clay's pants and Jingle Balls.... :rolleyes:

Not that I'm participating, I'm just reporting here...

Christmas Waltz - applause midway for the dancers.
