I AM SO EXCITED FOR TONIGHT! This is my home show. Tonight when he yells DEEETTROITT I will go nuts. I am going with real life best friends who both love AI and like Kris or Adam. They are like I used to be pre Matt. I have gone to 2 AI concerts in previous years and we talked more about where we should go to dinner before hand than the actual concert. They have watched me turn into an obsessed nut.

I know when Matt walks out it will go wild. My friends will be screaming for the MI boy even though he is not their favorite. (I try not to judge my friends!)

Our community is DEVASTATED by the auto industry's problems. It is heartbreaking around here. The suburbs are filled with engineers and car designers, etc who have been laid off and homes foreclosed. This has impacted ticket sales I am sure for tonight. In a normal economy it would have been sold out. But the Palace will be ROCKING tonight!!!!

Maci - once your friends see Matt live - I hope and pray and I know that they will change their minds and Matt will become their favorite!!!!! If not, hit them over the head with a 2x4 so they will get the picture!

Have fun tonight my friend - I know you will! Where are your seats for this one?

So I have decided to go to the concert afterall - just don't tell anyone LOL. I have to echo most of Maci had to say. This area has really been hit hard by the downfall of the big 3 and any other year, I would have expected next to a sell-out of The Palace which I think is the biggest venue on tour (24K+). Despite that, we Michiganders usually are great fans and many artists have pointed out how supportive crowds are in this area. One of the things I loved about Matt is how much "pub" he gave to his home town and home state and I'm sure they will give him some of that love back tonight. As a rule of thumb, the South (Arkansas, North Carolina - Kris and ANoops areas) tend to get more crazy for AI, but I'm hoping for at least 2 nights, MI can give them a run for their money. Could I use more metaphores in 1 sentence?

I will be going with 3 gals I work with. One Kris fan, one general AI fan, one (who knows and went to high school with Matt) Matt/Adam fan but I"ve made it a requirement that they need to scream for our boy! I don't doubt it will happen.

The only bad news right now is that its 11:30 and pouring rain. I know Jenna is bringing her son to meet Matt so I hope it clears up for them.

Tonight´s show is so exciting! That is the place to be.
Hopefully, I´m sure there will be lots and lots of love for Matt tonight.
I have read news about the Detroit and car industry. It is tough when cities are built around one big trades. We have here smaller cities dying because the wood and paper factories are being closed. There are families with many generations working in the factories,every inhabitant is vicariously affected by these closings. It is very difficult.
I have heard that when the times are tough people seek even more some entertainment and comfort, go to movies more etc. So are those AI tickets so expensive compared to something else?

But have a wonderful evening!

Yes! I am so excited for all of you guys going tonight! So exciting for Matt and for his fans!
I hope they get to meet Matt and the rain stops. IT will be a special night for him I am sure. I really really hope the crowd gives him a lotta of love and gives a minute ovation or something like what happened to Kris and Anoop. He deserves it so much.
Anyone knows if tonight we are trending #signmattgiraud? I hope everyone is up to it for that and it trends again.

Go Matty G!

My ears are ringing, my throat is sore, we rocked it out for Matt and all the Idols! I was screaming so loud for Matt, as were the people around me, that I couldn't really tell how loud it was. But I think it was LOUD. It seemed deafening to me. My friend had her fingers in her ears at the end of Matt's set. Place also went CRAZY for Adam. And Kris. And Danny. And guess who else? We loved Michael. Huge screams. I think everyone was psyched to have the concert starting. Way louder than Pitt and Cleveland to me. The arena is HUGE and was pretty filled up! I was surprised how full it was. Yay Detroit!!

Favorite moments:

"South Detroit". When Matt and Scott were on piano and Scott was about to sing that line, Matt got a big grin on his face because he knew what was coming. The whole arena sang "Born and raised in South Detrooooiiitt. Chills!

At the very end of DSB with the audience singing the song, Matt was at front of stage and looked out at audience with wide eyes and a big smile. He was clearly taking it all in. He did not do that in Pitt and Cleveland. I could feel his happiness and see that he was absorbing the moment.

During Georgia when he put on his fedora and said it was for Michigan (or Detroit?). Huge screams.

After HTH was over and the lights went out waiting for Georgia, the screams were deafening. My favorite moment.

Funniest moment:

One of my friends made me a Matt fan! She is a business woman who does not do this type of thing. It was a flat round fan with a long flat handle. She had blown up a life size color picture of Matt's head (Who's Loving You pic - she died that I knew what pic it was - if only she knew how deep I was into all of this!) and taped it to the fan. She put Giraud Squad on the back. I carried it around like an idiot and was waving it and proud - just a little embarrassed. We went to dinner in the Palace and I went to the bathroom right when we sat down. I came back and my friends had placed the handle of the fan in an empty wine glass with a napkin stuffed inside to hold it up. Matt's face was at our level. They placed Matt at the fourth place at the table. So we dined with Matt!! We were drinking and having fun! I pretended to laugh at Matt's jokes and we shared some intimate moments. I know, I am crazy! Later I was walking and a woman stopped me and said "I saw that you had dinner with Matt". She loved it. My fan was a huge hit wherever I walked. Everyone wanted to hold it. Very Happy

Driving to the Palace, I made my friends listen to you know what. I told them they couldn't talk during "Too many nights" and YFM. Then we talked about Matt and I told them my Pitt/CLev stories. Later in the car, my friend started telling a random story and stopped cold. She asked if she was allowed to talk about something other than Matt! Ha ha.

Great night for Matt and Detroit fans!

So I'm home and I'm exhausted but I thought I would catch you guys up despite all that.

I had to meet Jenna to give her her ticket but I wasn't going to get there in time for the buses - at least I didn't think I was. It turns out the rain really postponed the Meet and greet and when I showed up at 5:30 is essentially when Matt came out - and Matt was the only one to come out again (unless you count Allison hiding in the bushes smoking a cigarette). Quick description - blue shirt, black jeans/pants, no hat. I must admit, you all know i don't like the faux hawk, but his hair looked much better in person. I said this outloud and this girl next to me said "Did you say he looks hotter in person - I agree", I laughed and said, "well, something like that". She then said "I think I need to slip him my number". I did not hurt her in case you were wondering LOL

Matt made his way down the line, being his usual charming self, taking pictures, signing things. It looks like he only got 2 gifts - one from a little girl who asked him to marry her (he said yes) and one from Jenna's son - a hat with a piano on it. He looked at Jaden and said "That's cool. Thank you little brotha" and for some reason, he wanted the box. Jenna frantically tore her address off the box. Kind of funny. Jaden than noted that Matt was once again wearing the necklace we gave him. Jaden said "You are wearing our necklace" and he said "yeah, from the Giraud Squad". I was the designated photographer and will post photos later. No, I did not identify myself.

Later, we're walking into the palace, and Matt's father, aunt, uncle, and a couple of friends are standing in the lobby. Matt's dad was grinning from ear to ear, wearing a fedora (as were the rest of the people) and a White Tshirt with black lettering which said "Matt G's Dad". It was really cute. We walked up to the group, told them we loved Matt and they were smiling and appreciative. Jenna then piped up and said something about the necklace and his dad walked over to Jenna and said "He was just showing it to us earlier. He really loves that necklace". I got a picture of Dad as well - Matt looks a lot like him - they have the same dimples.

Then we went to get a bite to eat (or at least some of us were eating - some were drinking [and by some, I mean me]). I look up and there is Matt's family again, this time with his roommate, his friend who runs his facebook page, and his ex-girlfriend. The reported from the fox station in Grand Rapids was also there and they were taking some photos. They were all decked out in balck and white and most were in fedoras. Jenna's son decided the ex/girlfriend was hot (black dress, really high balck and white shoes, feather in her hair). I thought about sending a drink over but I decided against it.

I will post another thread about the actual concert.

Detroit News Review - Ignore the headline.

Quote :
Wednesday night acted as a homecoming for Michigan's own Matt Giraud, who made a case for himself that he should have gone much further in the show than the fifth place finish he was awarded.
In an alternate universe, the finale might have been Lambert and Giraud, as Giraud gave a full-bodied, high energy performance that saw him successfully taking on both the Black Crowes ("Hard to Handle") and Ray Charles ("Georgia on My Mind"). As Giraud's friends and family cheered him on -- his father wore a shirt that screamed "Matt G's Dad" -- Giraud showed he had genuine chops on both the microphone and at the piano, and the ability to make a go of a music career.

Later, we're walking into the palace, and Matt's father, aunt, uncle, and a couple of friends are standing in the lobby. Matt's dad was grinning from ear to ear, wearing a fedora (as were the rest of the people) and a White Tshirt with black lettering which said "Matt G's Dad". It was really cute. We walked up to the group, told them we loved Matt and they were smiling and appreciative. Jenna then piped up and said something about the necklace and his dad walked over to Jenna and said "He was just showing it to us earlier. He really loves that necklace". I got a picture of Dad as well - Matt looks a lot like him - they have the same dimples.

Then we went to get a bite to eat (or at least some of us were eating - some were drinking [and by some, I mean me]). I look up and there is Matt's family again, this time with his roommate, his friend who runs his facebook page, and his ex-girlfriend. The reported from the fox station in Grand Rapids was also there and they were taking some photos. They were all decked out in balck and white and most were in fedoras. Jenna's son decided the ex/girlfriend was hot (black dress, really high balck and white shoes, feather in her hair). I thought about sending a drink over but I decided against it.

I will post another thread about the actual concert.

Thanks for the recap SGR!! I'm SO glad you got to experience all the love for Matt in his home state!!...I kept hearing stuff about his Dad being here and there but no one ever said anything about his Mom?? Was she there because you didn't mention she was with the rest of the family either? hmmmm..just curious. I hope she was there somewhere?..probably with the grandma... Oh and also you did keep referring to Jessica as the ex-gf so did it seem like they are for sure not an item now? I think we kinda already knew that though...

Can't wait to hear concert recap later from you! Very Happy

Thank you Maci and Sgr for the recaps! I bet Jenna was some excited to see Matt's pendant and then you guys getting to talk to his dad - how fun was that. It's funny cuz Matt tweeted a little earlier about his Dad having that shirt on and people wanting to take pictures with his Dad. That is just so cute.

I am so excited for Matt. I bet last night was the best night of the tour for him. How fun!

Someone posted on MJ's site that Matt came out after the concert and proceeded to slap Adam on the behind. After completing the Meet and greet apparently Matt and Adam skipped arm in arm all the way to the buses.
As you can imagine, this made Matt much more popular on MJ's - although I, like some others on that site, would really appreciate video footage to prove it to me.
