I haven't read the review from the Dallas Voice, and don't plan to. I love music, and really don't enjoy music critics. Overall, the crowd response to Clay was overwhelming last night. Maybe the jaded music critic didn't find what he was looking for, but the overall audience DID. I left the venue when Jerome was gathering Ben's family together, and as I walked out I heard a nice looking looking young woman saying, "I had no idea he was so funny. What a great show." Yes, it was. It was my favorite Clay concert of all time -- I've only seen 10, encompassing SRHP, Timeless and T&T, but this one is in the No. 1 slot right now. I'll never have a better seat in my life. That would be impossible.

Another hilarious comment Clay made last night... he said "Turn your balls on." Now that got the crowd going!!!

As to the M&G protocol, our PBS M&G in Houston didn't seem regimented to me. First, it was Ernie and not Jerome who lined everyone up and then chatted with us about his interview with Clay. Then Jerome and Mary came out and I don't remember any admonitions. We were told that Clay would sign one thing and to have it ready. Clay went down the line, signing and chatting. After he had signed everything, he went to the front of the line and then we walked up to him for our pictures. So we all had at least two times with him. He was very gracious and some people had solo pictures and then pictures with their friend, husband, etc. Our pictures were taken by Andrea of PBS, and she sent us hi-res versions. I thought it was a very exciting experience and there was nothing uncomfortable about it in any way. And, as always, he was gorgeous. But not more gorgeous than last night. God, I love his SKIN!!!!

Last night, Clay noticed a number of people scattered throughout the audience who were holding up those lighted/laser sticks and balls and swaying them to the music. He asked one person how long she'd had hers, and she said she had seen him there in 2004, and Clay laughingly said he remembered her. Then he asked her why she had brought it last night, and she told him straight -- "To get your attention." You should have seen Clay's face. It was priceless. He said, "Well, you suckered me on THAT one." He made me laugh HARD all night long, except when he was making me swoon. Anyway that was the precursor to another song when he told the crowd it was time to "turn your balls on." It was screamingly funny at the time.

Wow- how did they get there? I thought Joann had to give permission, unless she posted them herself?

While waiting in line, there was an adorable young teen ager, with long dark
hair, a very fashionable white ruffled bodiced short dress, who had a picture
I remembered. There was a sweet, maybe 4 year old gal, with long blond hair
singing to Clay....little Brianna. My gd use to jump on my lap, and ask to
please play Brianna again. She just loved her...and here Brianna stood,
growing up, glowing, and still excited to see Clay.

Clay looked rested, happy, and ready for the large PBS group, I guess around
35 or 40. Scarlett was having one of her phones signed, and I had my
picture taken with Clay and Ruben at the Biloxi Timeless event, and actually
looked at Clay this time. We were told we could not ask any questions as
the Meet & Moo had to be like clockwork as they still had to do the OFC M&G.

When the music started, the curtain parted, Clay in the front singing "Where Do I Begin, Love Story Theme",
with so much feeling like he had someone in mind. He sang the socks off that one.
His voice was strong and magnificent, and remain so throughout the concert.
I was concerned later as one of the call outs on Who's Sorry Now was Hard Rock.
He just scream sang, while Quiana went into rock gyrations, singing and doing a
hard pumping of the mike stand, which put Clay doubling over laughing hysterically.
I hope Scarlett caught this part of the concert.
He is so funny, and does it without even trying....he just is.

He called someone out with a phone, found party had hung up, and commanded,"Call her back!".
Got her back on the phone, and whoever said, she hung up as her husband came home.
and he doesn't like you. So what does he do but ask to put husband on the the phone.
That was so funny...luckily her husband was in the shower. This turned out to be
Merrieeee. He spoke to her with his Spamalot accent..so perfect.

There were more than a few men in the audience...all different ages, and they along
with the rest of us seem to thoroughly enjoy the show. Clay was loose and comfortable
doing his hilarious banter, and is putting in some potty humor, especially with Del.
Even tho potty...it still was clean fun.

He had a few standing OV.."Where Do I Begin, Love Story Theme"."Build Me Up Buttercup", UM,..and I think one more. He was in good voice.
It was like he was with his family, and in many ways that's true. Ben had a large family
group there, smiling proudly, and enjoying having him home for a couple of days.

We waited two hours at the fence and did get a hand touch, so I'm taking this hand
to bed with me tonight. Got to meet CaliforniaClayFan, Hosaa, Ressamac, Desertrose
...and I know more but didn't take notes.

Marilyn and Tiffany,

   I did put a couple of photos on the OFC myself only in the G. Prairie concert thread.  It "appears" that my "Thumb's Up" photo is liked by many different places.

Marilyn--Thanks for putting them in the places you told me about and thanks for tagging them. I don't  know how.
               Prissy sent me a link to "North Carolina Blog"  She used my photo "Thumb's Up" as her headliner.  It was already tagged by you.  It's an honor to see my photos being enjoyed.

TODAY I WILL BE HAPPIER THEN A BIRD WITH A FRENCH FRY!

That's wonderful JoAnn. You'll be one of the official picture clack gatherers now. ;) It is great to see the Claynation like and approve your pics.

I noticed you posted in the Texas tour thread. All the clack pics and videos that are posted in the concerts thread Nan posts in the clack thread as well Marilyn so I'm sure it's ok.

Actually, this was not Brianna (the little tyke who sang with him in Raleigh). This young lady sang with him at the NAT stop in Houston. I was there and I remembered her when she showed me her newly autographed picture. I remember that she was actually from Dallas and he had chatted with her about what she was doing in Houston since school had just gone back into session. I told her I remembered her and that conversation...that she had been there with a relative that lived in Houston (aunt maybe?). She had been in middle school back in 2004. She was really tickled that some random person remembered her from that show.

She said that Clay did remember her, but that she was a little disappointed that she didn't get to chat more about it. I told her that there were so many people at the PBS M&Gs that he really didn't get the chance to slow down and visit individually. Still, I bet he was really pleased to see that the girl that sang with him had grown into such a gorgeous young lady who would want to have her special moment autographed. That was a real treat for me the other night. Anyone remember her name and the fan she was related to?
