From CB:

mayann from NC says the word means

melancholy. snarked... if it meant melancholy they would have just said melancholy..

asking around.

It is not in the music diction..

Teresa from PA guesses it 's not in the book...

You are standing up with my name across the book

talking to Maryann from NC.. she was wrong. anybody else anyone ..oh come on people.. any one got a dictionary..lady has a book and said its not in my book..laughter..she is guessing..now another lady..hard to understand.. someone shouting from the back...whats your name.. laughter ..whats your guess.and the crowd roars ..mean to play with only the mouth piece.. I think he said..

Tonight's word of the night for your learning pleasure...melancasio (sp?)

We're going to go with anybody in the audience that might know what that is. What is your name? Marianne? Oh, that's a good state - North Carolina. What do you do? Do you have any musical background? None. What is your best guess? Melancholy...no, it's not melancholy. It's a tough one. Someone usually has cheated and brought a dictionary.

Somebody back there knows. Stand up. Do you have a guess? What's your name? From New Paltz, New York. He's trying to say it. Excuse me. One more guess.

Somebody's shouting back there. Means to play with only the mouthpiece. The orchestra is going to give you an example.

Just asked someone...what are you wearing?!?!?! He says that people come to these shows dressed up really weird.

Clay says he's sick so he can't get close to people. He says that this is like a big Meet 'n' Greet.

Says to one girl that her finace is nowhere to be found tonight. Back at the hotel. She was at last night's show.

Time for the word of the night! So that we can leave the show feeling educated.

Someone giving him a present...a pocket manual of something...I think Italian words.

Word is "meloncatio." Urging the audience to guess. Someone looked it up, but it's not in the book. :laugh It's Teresa from Pennsylvania. Now someone else...people yelling out now. Whatever the guess was, people went woo. :woohoo

Now Donna is up. She's from New York. Whatever the guess is, they're laughing. It means to play with only the mouthpiece. :yow

He said that no one got it because they made it up tonight because people were cheating. He said Whatevah

The word was a made up word because they have been cheating.

Hey, Gaga..

Talking to JO. Told her to make sure the Clack is steady.

they are demonstrating it.. and crowd is going wild..he made up the word.. he was just stringing them along.. then he said oh what evar oh what everaaa... got someone videoing. now..

MDYK now..

I read that he took the phone of the guy who was doing a cellcert to a sick person...and sang to it.

nice pinstripe and the ppckets were slanted...then we lost the connection

before that they said that although the usher said not camera or picture taking...then nothing was ever done about it.

he sang first verse to the woman who was sick...

the guy was not really impressed and so they do not like him...

when someone said they wanted to eat him he said that is just nasty and this is a government building...

she is trying to do a british accent...

Kelly ripa...he was ripping on her...he said the audience hate her and the people

he had messed up SR completely...he stopped in the middle...and put his hands on his head and tryign to figure the words out...

he got Jamie out and he was trying to get her to do a new york accent...and he said Jamies accent is so thick and he is keeping her around so that he doesn;t sound like he has an accent.

From CH cellcert:

The wife was sitting at the back...and the guy was dragged around before...and he wasn;t that happy about that.

he sat on the stool from SR to the end.

oh he forgot the words so the audience sang it for him...

made up word...when someone guessed slow and steady...and he made a face...this other womans stood up and said it was an italion mobster in witness protection program...someoen coudln;t find it in the dictionary and then he said it was a made up word.

someon in the orchestra shout out to him...and he said that now the orchsetra is butting in...then someone handed him a gift and he opened it and it wasa book of musical term.

Clay told jojo...keep the Clack steady.

I believe I heard that the toys for tots was One of the best collections. It was nice, but did not cover all 3 table set up. We were surprised because usually the fans are way more generaous= must have been all the off board people - I think it was 2/3 not just us. It was really full and they were still selling tickets before the show. Lots of young guys in the back, must have been date night.

"Wandering around the whole stage" per CV.

bottlecap was also reported to be grinning like an idiot at the report. What a relief!

I'm grinning too. WHEW!

Gosh, he's cracking them up...as usual. Hand over mouth and binocular schtick.

"I could just sit her and talk to you people..."

Loud cheers!

I love him.
