DEC 09 2011 (Fri) IRVING PLAZA (New York, NY)-- tweets, live blogging, setlist, videos, photos, recaps/reviews, etc.


Hey everyone! As in past, I will be creating a discussion thread for each stop of this tour in an effort to keep the boards organized and help everyone more easily find info related to each event (and have a record of everything in one place for anyone wanting to look back on these events sometime in future). The following is how these threads will work (subject to change):
>> Thread pinned to the top of or on the main David Cook Discussion forum for 24-48 hrs
>> Thread moved to its respective regional Tour Talk forum (e.g., East Coast, Midwest, etc.)

What should be posted here? Related local radio/TV/press, on-site reports/photos, live blogging, recaps, media and fan reviews, links to related blogs, event photos/videos, etc., etc. Please post links to photos instead of embedding them and please disable graphic footers as this will make the thread easier to read (especially when live blogging). Regarding PRE-SHOW sound check and set list spoilers, please either PM me the info so that I may post it as hidden text in the first pinned reply or, alternatively, if I am not hosting or not here for whatever reason, then please post the spoilers to a blog and link that blog back to this thread in your reply.

Cheers! ~Lisa

OMG I LOVE this photo - Dave reaching out to his fans at Irving Plaza! In B&W, too. Truly awesome. Whoever took this awesome shot - please send it on to Dave! He should see it. And thanks soooooooo much for sharing.

This DC junkie is going into DT's - last stage of DC withdrawal. Need a quick fix! Need a show!

[MP3] Fade Into Me (David Cook Live @ Irving Plaza):
without banter:
with banter:

OMG Mr. Sensitve-Irving Plaza is THE hottest performance of that song yet, imo!! Good Lord he was on FIRE! I've never played an instrument so not up on the lingo so please bear with me here when I say "strums", but that ending part, I actually counted those rockin' "strums"...there were 15!! It was smokin' hot...that part and really all of the song! Of course the counting came in after about the 4th time watching when I recovered enough to want to count. Before that, all I could do was watch in awe and excitement. I wish SO bad that I had been at this concert. How epic was that? I've already decided that next tour, regardless of where the last concert of it is, I will BE THERE!

Thank you, everyone, for all the videos and guys are the best! I'm still catching up on videos/concerts and have finally made it here. Have only gotten through The Last Goodbye so far. I like to go in order, although I have seen the epic FIM and the ones with VanZandt because people kept tweeting them and it was too hard to wait, lol. Now I'm working my way through and just had to remark about Mr. S.! Awesomeness!!

I have somewhat of an odd question for the people that went to (or bought tickets & didn't go to) Irving Plaza.

I need a "hard" ticket from this show for an art project that I'm working on. Obviously I went to the show, but I had an eticket that I bought at the last minute. The hard ticket I was supposed to receive never got to my house- it must have gotten lost in the mail. I know not everyone is a pack rat like me (lol), so if by chance anyone has a leftover hard ticket that they didn't sell, or if you're just going to toss one out, please let me know. You can message me here on DCO, find me on Twitter (@jalyndani), or just private message me.

Thanks, everyone. I truly appreciate you taking the time to read this. What an incredible show this was...

An incredible concert, incredible videos. Thanks to everyone for capturing all of the special monents of that night. Goes without saying that I would have loved to have been there. Just watched REM for the first time...brought tears to my eyes... then his "I'm speechless banter". Just love him!!

Just uploaded a bunch of videos from this amazing concert. Got some cool stills, one which I posted here along with a glowing review You'll find all the videos on youtube channel here (still a few more to upload too).

Got a lot of banter too and if you're the girl from South Carolina who got a hug from David, my camera didn't get a close up but did captured the moment from a far. That was so cool. That David has a heart of gold!
