Sounds like a great night.... except for the obnoxious ladies.

Congrats to all of you who can forever say you were at the first 2012 show. I'm envious, but also pleased that I'll get two shows in NYC in December.

I'll be there too....on December 16! This will be my third LC concert and I am wildly anticipating this one. Joan of Arc would be such a gift! Maybe I'll see you both at the theater....

Thank you so much, Maarten. He's still that flirtatious silver fox isn't he? And if anything he looks younger than when I last saw him. Please keep the clips coming. It might be the closest some of us get, this time around!

What, already? :) :) :)
I thought gigs didn't start until tomorrow evening!
"My gigs" don't start until Friday! Seems like ages to wait! Let the party begin very soon! Can't wait and see you all there! :)
Any spoilers regarding special guests? ;)

One disappointment, though; although there is a violin now, "The Window" was not revived... :(
