I'm also excited about the Waterbury show, so I hope we can get in early over here!

I saw Lenny at the Beacon Theatre show and figured, "Ok, I've seen the man the best I'll likely see him, no need to come back to NYC to try and top it."

then I saw he was playing right in CT, a half hour away, so there was pretty much no way i could just let it go!

Welcome to the forum spug17!

There are 2 of you right here going to the same concert. You might have even both been at the Beacon since Dari says something about attending the NYC shows. You should really try to do a meetup pre or post concert (there have to be a number of people interested) - it truly enhances the whole experience! Enjoy the show, I know you will :D and we will eagerly be awaiting your reviews of the concert!

Best regards,
Mary

thanks!
though i think i signed up once before and forgot my old login info!

so there has to be enough interest to enter early?? how exactly do we demonstrate that here on the board!?

i think i saw at least 2 other people just in this thread going to the CT show... maybe the early entrance can be a super-special 3-person affair! haha.

Our members bought several hundred tickets to every venue at the pre-sales, and all these tickets are will-call. You will not be alone! Just let the personnel know that you are a fan club/Forum member.

I wish I'd signed on here sooner, maybe we could have done the early entry! Anyway, we saw Leonard's concert in Victoria BC, Apr 21, and it was a wonderful night. He was in good voice and mood; spoke to the audience often. It had a club feel even in our arena of 7,000 seats. The audience was an interesting mix of longtime fans (like me and my husband; I have that first album in vinyl) and newer fans (I met my twenty-something niece in the bar line-up!). The band was great and he was very kind, gave each band member a moment (or more than one) to shine in the show. We were all on our feet at the end of the show, which earned us repeated encores (4).

If you don't already have tickets, and he's coming near you on this tour, GO! And show your appreciation at the end of the show!

The 'goodies' have been coming in the form of the band members coming out to meet and greet the members of this forum before the shows - how special is that :D :!:

This is a wonderful surprise. I have collected all of Leonards books and music for several years and had the opprtunity to see him in concert fifteen years ago.I am so excited to see and hear him perform again. Thank you for the special arrangements made for all of the members.
