    So I was not crazy to get on Google Maps this morning, calculate the miles from Home to Portland ME, to Providence RI, and then have a fantasy about following the bus all the way from Maine to Rhode Island?

  2. Karen says:

    Kim – hahahahahahahahah

    I was actually thinking last night about my tickets for Sept 7 and thought maybe, I mean, just what if…I just took the day off and parked on 35 and followed them in to watch them arrive at the hotel…

    But, I thought, no-o-o-o-o .. that would be CRAZY!


    Welcome to my world, crazy Kim! It seems that, no matter what the thought, one or more of the rest of us have thought the same!. LOL

  3. A. says:

    I think Kim might need an intervention…….

  4. Kim(DogDoc) says:

    So on Sept 6/7 I am going to be parking my car off of I-35 in Norman, OK to watch the buses go by down to Dallas. (Actually I ought to go down to the TX/OK state line, because it is usually bumper to bumper and I could probably walk right up to the buses and knock on the doors. )

    I was just about to make the same comment about leads in a Broadway show. When I’ve seen a performance I have been in AWE by the fact that they make it seem like they are performing it for the first time, and just for ME! I think Taylor is going to be fine. The AI concert isn’t really that long and when compared to doing a solo concert, his part is really not that much – it’s not like singing through a 3 hour five days/week. He’s worked up the stamina and endurance to handle it, unlike some of the more delicate flowers that are tagging along…

  6. Phoebe says:

    Leads in Broadway musicals play 6 to 8 shows a week, week in, week out. The best maintain both their voice and enthusiasm for the material.

  7. Tee says:

    Whew! Needless to say, that is a grueling schedule. On top of that, Tay has to squeeze in time to record his album, and will have to turn right back around and start promotion for it once the tour is over. Bless his heart- for all his performing experience, even he isn’t used to this kind of a break-neck, kick-booty schedule. Welcome to the big leagues, Tay Tay.

    Reading that tour schedule has fired up my “mother hen” tendencies regarding Elliott. I can’t help worrying about him a little bit; I hope he’s able to hang in there over the course of this summer.

  8. Donna says:

    I just wanted to mention …. if a show is listed as ‘sold out’ keep trying. The Syracuse show had no tickets available and apparently Ticketmaster released more seats and I was able to get tickets yesterday (yippee!).

  9. Susan54inWV says:

    Most performers feed off the audience. The fact that each audience is different, and each venue is different will help to keep the performances “new.”

  10. Jan B. says:

    They might change it up a bit from time to time, too.

  11. Jan B. says:

    My bet would be that each contestant will “play big” WHENEVER they’re on their own turf. Taylor will up the wattage wherever they speak with a drawl and drink sweet tea… Tay-Tay will show up at every arena, but I think others will lose some spark. Performing live with a great band is like “crack” to Taylor…he was born for this!

  12. ardnian says:

    I really really want to watch one of these shows! Too bad i’m on the other side of the world. 😦

  13. Karen says:

    I’ve asked before, but I still wonder…

    How can a performer feel and carry over the intensity and excitement after doing this 17 times ?- looks like you’d wake up and go, “Agh, gotta do this again!”

    Any performers out there able to add to this – I selfishly want the same Full Woo in September that I’m hearing about from these first shows. LOL

  14. katja says:

    Wow. That’s a lot of singing.

  15. SpaceOddity says:

    Phew! I have a feeling that all of the Idols will be exhausted towards the end of September… LOL.

  16. idolAddict_NW says:

    Thanks for this! I was thinking about making a list today and you just saved me a lot of work!

    Why is it that I actually want to know where he is all the time? Or that I’ve hang out in 4 play-by-plays already? Sheesh, I think it’s time to get some meds.
