12/27 SEMINOLE ARENA @ HARD ROCK LIVE, HOLLYWOOD,

Recommended Posts

Pre-concert: Venue capacity is 5,500 and 5,100 tickets have been sold.

Per the venue's website: "Let us entertain you--Seminole Hard Rock style! Finally, an entertainment venue worthy of South Florida's hottest concerts and sporting events. Hard Rock Live, now open, featuring state-of-the-art arena seating 5,500 music lovers, sports fans or conventioneers in comfort and style. Get close to the action as we bring the hottest national acts, world championship boxing, and more!"

CV cellcerters: Did a little interview with Gregory this morning as he was walking Raleigh. Gregory said he likes to help out when he can, and since he didn't have to go to rehearsal, he was taking care of Raleigh. He normally does his homework when the rest of the cast is rehearsing with the community group. (His mother was with him, btw.)

The certers have been trying to track down Jerome to talk to the stream, but haven't been able to nab him.

It is Quiana's birthday today, and reportedly also Jerome's. Happy Birthday guys!

Hi all! I just talked to my friend, Heater, who is there tonight. She just talked to Maka (William's producer/assistant??) and William will NOT be opening for Clay tonight due to time restraints. There is NO piano on stage. Clay will be starting in just a few minutes!!

MAY NOT HAVE WILLIAM JOSEPH DOING HIS OPENING SET TONIGHT. STAY TUNED.

The certers have said there is no piano on the stage, so that may be correct.

Here we go - the opening recording is playing - definitely no WJ set tonight.

"The spirit of the season is in the air.... The holiday starts right now!"

Christmastime overture and applause as Clay enters.

I believe that the Ruth Eckerd Hall concert sold so fast that they added another one, and that sold well, also!

This is a casino, so maybe there were a number of comps. Anyway, the audience response sounds good, even if there were "I Love You Clay" screamers audible.

The initial dialogue with Beverly and Tommy now leading up to the phone call. Does Alison sound different tonight? Like she's holding down the drawl a bit?

Sleigh Ride, and now Jingle Bells.

I'm glad the attendance numbers have been so good for the southern leg of the tour. Rake in that cash, bay-bee! Daddy needs a state-of-the-art home recording studio! :D

HYAMLC - crooning from a stool as the dancers spin around the stage, and Andy gets in his nice acoustic solo.

Speaking of Andy, the morning show camera guys really love him, don't they? Both the Early Show and GMA (both performances) featured him pretty heavily.

Lots of hootin' and hollerin' for the second place jokes. The audience seems to be pretty wired.

Silver Bells - CV is suggesting maybe Alison has a cold. Her voice sounds a little husky tonight.
