June 27th show
Worcester, MA – second show in Boston
It all started at my Re-Invention Convention on Sunday, when I finally got to meet two of my customers in person (Peter and Pieter, a couple from California who are soon getting married). They had originally planned to bring their friend Caroline Rice with them to my show (Caroline was one of the principal actors in Madonna’s “American Life” video, the girl with cornrows who sits on the Mini Cooper). Caroline couldn’t make it to my show, but I still got to meet the guys, which was really nice. By the way, the convention was a blast, and I finally got to meet some of my customers in person, and I met a lot of nice people.
A couple hours later at the concert, my friends and I were making our way to our seats, which were in section Floor 7, 13th row (near the mixing board), when my friend Suzanne pointed out that Peter and Pieter were nearby. I walked over to them, and said hello. They introduced me to their friend Caroline (who was hanging out with some guys working the sound board), and she seemed pretty cool. The guys had told her all about the convention that I had just run, and how much of a huge fan I am. She apologized for not being able to make it to my show. She seemed very nice, but I didn’t say very much to her other than “Hello, it’s so nice to meet you.” So I never expected what was about to happen.
A few minutes later (this was around 8:45), I was sitting in my seat waiting for the show to begin. I was with 5 of my friends, but a couple of them were still out getting drinks or whatever. Then the lights went out, and the audience started screaming. All the sudden, I looked up, and I saw Caroline again, standing near where I was sitting. She pointed right at me, and shouted, “You!!!” I pointed to my chest in confusion, and replied, “Me????” She nodded her head yes. She said “come over here”. I thought I was in trouble or something. She said to me, “Switch seats with me. I already saw the show six times, so you can have my seat for tonight.” She handed me her ticket. and when I looked at it, I almost died – LITERALLY. Section Floor 1, 3rd row. “Hurry up though, cuz the show is about to start” – she had to scream, cuz the lights had already gone down and the audience was going crazy.
I pushed and shoved my way up to the front. I had never been that close to anything before. About five feet away from the stage. I managed to get to my seat, and I saw Peter and Pieter were right in front of me, in the second row. I hugged them both and thanked them immensely for introducing me to Caroline. Needless to say, I never did sit in that seat (I don’t know why they even bother putting chairs that close to the stage, nobody ever sits down when they’re that close).
For the next hour and a half, I was in heaven. Each and every second, I found myself either screaming out of control, or just standing there like a statue, because I was at a total loss for words, and didn’t even know how to process what was going on around me. I was close enough to see for certain that Madonna looked right into my eyes at least 5 or 6 times during the night, and I even saw myself on the big screen for a brief moment during “Die Another Day”. The show was truly amazing. I had such a great time. Madonna looked and sounded SO beautiful. The dancers were so amazing, and so beautiful. I will never forget what my new friends have done for me.
