Hey SameNameAsYou: Glad you enjoyed the show last night. Think you should also post your recap on the main thread.

i.e. http://www.davidcookofficial.com/us/content/aug-15-09-sat-state-fair-wes...

I’m pretty sure I couldn’t have picked a better show to see to be my first one. The pranks were out in full force last night between David and Green River Ordinance. When Green River Ordinance came out, David and the guys sat on the side of the stage playing poker and tossing chips at the GRO guys. After a few songs Green River Ordinance stopped and said they just weren’t comfortable, they needed to get comfortable before they could go on. So they took of their button down shirts to reveal t-shirts with I love David, and so on for each member of David’s band. Every one of them had a picture of each band member they loved on their shirts, we laughed so hard it was very unique. The poker players left the stage but a few minutes later a man in a green suit *Apparently David* came out dancing around the stage. I didn’t know much about Green River Ordinance before I went in, but I came out a fan they have their own sound and I like that.

Changing out the stage didn’t take too long, but it seemed like forever before David and the guys came out. We still managed to be entertained because this intoxicated girl started putting a show on as soon as she came into the grandstand area and didn’t stop until David came in, or maybe she continued and everybody was able to block her out.
The guys were rocking out and guess what, another green man shows up during David’s set haha. I’m assuming somebody on the other side of the stage had a sign that said I quit my job to be here or something to that effect, David was like that sucks, thanks but you realize we are in a recession. Somebody told me once jobs don’t grow on trees, he said he thought his mom said that. Somewhere about halfway through the show I think it was, no more green men appeared, but this time a monkey and Josh from GRO came out on stage carrying bananas, but I forget what song it was. Closer to the end of the show he asked somebody if he could borrow their sign. It said *AND THE GRAMMY GOES TOO...DAVID COOK.* He showed it to the crowd and his band, and then told us he didn’t care if it was female vocalist he just wanted one. LOL What a goofball but I loved it. At the end of the show the GRO guys came back out the monkey still in his suit lol with a bright yellow sign that said I’m bananas for David Cook.

I had waited before the stage but apparently David had already came out earlier in the day and I missed him. He didn’t come out while I was back there. So I met up with Ashley and we made our way around the fair grounds then went to our seats. Afterwards the way things went on stage we were pretty sure he was going to sign. We stood and watched the fireworks and saw him come out he waved at the group of people against the fence, but didn’t come over. We were starting to wonder if he would. Some people had to drive but said they would wait. Luckily this was a short trip for me I drive it every day to work so I could’ve waited all night and been ok I only live half an hour away. Finally he comes over and tells us he’s going to try and sign for everybody so he couldn’t stop for pictures. I really wanted a picture but I was fine with meeting him. Maybe next time I’ll get that picture. I’m already looking to see when my next show could possibly be. It was an awesome night. I’ve always wondered how people kept up with the set list from the shows. Well as crazy as I am I decided to send myself text messages so I could keep up with it for once.

I'm so excited that I can't stand it. This week has gone by really fast, but I'm working nights and sleeping the day away so I'm sure that's part of it. I go to a lot of shows, but this is my first David Cook show.

I am looking forward to it too! I too am in the front row!! I hope the weather cooperates with us! Smiling

OMG, only 2 days left until our show. Is everyone else as excited as I am? I will be in the front row, hopefully right up at the stage. YAY!!

I'm not disappointed , I just wanted to be sure someone wasn't gonna come up to the barricade and block my view! Standing in front of my seat is perfectly fine with me! Thanks for the information, I appreciate it! Smiling

Sorry to dissapoint you but they usually just let you stand infront of your seat. They don't allow us to move forward closer to the stage. Sometimes they'll allowe people in rows behind you come up the center aisles to take a few pictures and then they are sent back to their seats. I haven't seen signs in the past few years but they in the past they did allow signs. So you may bring it. doesn't hurt to try especially if it is small.

Still looking for a good ticket for this one....

ncc1991

Tickets are still available, I just checked for best available. If you want track I pulled 11th row on the left side facing the stage. Or if you choose a seat in section 100 which is a box seat in the grandstand there are seats about 3 rows up in that section. I'm not sure if you've ever been to a show at our fair or not but it's very small! There really isn't a bad spot. I love the track but I'm short so if I personally would choose between the seats I would be able to see better from the grandstand, but I prefer the track. Hope that helps!
