I am feeling overwhelmed with emotion from the weekend. It was better than my wildest dreams. I am so thrilled for our group that it worked out so well. I felt responsible for all of these travelers. Lord knows what could have gone wrong. But everything went right and then some. I really can't post details now, I feel strung out. LOL I think if I started writing, I would write a novel.

Special shout out to Cecilie, my soul sista! I have not stopped crying since I dropped her off at the airport yesterday.

And Matt, Matt, Matt. What a gentle soul in person and such a powerful force on stage.

I'm just jumping with excitement for the amazing time you all had and can't wait to read all the juicy details to come! Thank you so much for all your hard work with the CD's and the chanting and PR work. Matt has the best fans ever and you you guys are the cream of the crop!!

Holy WOW you got to go to the Official Matt Afterparty? I'm sooo jealous! I can officially say that Matt ditched me to hang out with you guys!! I actually won the Ford Focus contest and got Afterparty passes! Matt was only able to stay for a little while because he had to go to his own party! I'm so grateful that I got the time with him that I did. He was absolutely wonderful and we joked around....it was so great to talk to him while being relaxed and coherent! In the video Jenna posted earlier you can see me getting a picture with Sarver. So I got to talk to Matt as well, and he remembered me from Philly when I told him my name! So awesome. The Afterparty was great because I got to meet all of the Idols and get autographs. I really enjoyed talking to Danny and Adam!! They were both super sweet and I enjoyed both of their sets. I'd really looked forward to meeting Gokey and was not disappointed! He was great to talk to and gave me an incredible hug! I even congratulated him on getting signed...haha. The first time I saw Adam's set in Philly I plugged my ears!! But somehow in GR I liked him much more and we had some eye-to-eye moments, and he told me he remembered me! Don't worry though ladies, I am still ALL about Matt!

I also had floor seats, in the 3rd row stage left with the BG's and we had an amazing time. We chanted too...we just heard lots of noise for Matt, I think it was a mission accomplished! It was really great to be there for such an emotional show.....his Georgia was heartbreaking it was so good. I personally felt like I got a couple of eye-to-eye moments with him again (sigh... ), so that was great! And YES WE THREW THE BRAS!! I am personally proud of myself because Matt picked up MY bra and twirled it around.....I died!! The crew ended up messing with it as well....so hopefully it makes the wall of fame!

I'm telling things out of order...but the whole weekend was almost life-changing. Now it seems like everything's a little sweeter, a little more peaceful...since the concert was such an amazing event and I had an amazing time with my dear dear friends. Monaco Bay was incredible, and I was so happy to meet lovethemtigers, macigirl, Cecelie, and Lisa_M! Got to meet 2kids3dogs before the show! But you guys hogged up my Matt time...how dare you!! How can I forgive you?? LOL

How can I forgive you?? LOL

Janizzle, how cool is it that all of us got to meet Matt after the show?? And Matt was SO sexy swinging YOUR bra around at the concert. Good job, girl! I agree that this weekend was almost life changing. So happy that you had as much fun with "your girls" as I did with mine. LOL. Loved meeting you and the other BGs. All so sweet! You are adorable.

At Monaco Bay, I reenacted two scenes from Matt's homecoming in May. I did this because I am a goofball. In one scene I played Matt's GF Jessica (natch) and BGAmie, dsouthie23 and Lovethemtigers played me and 2 other women. I showed them how Jessica walked right in front of me and stopped to talk to the other 2 women. So silly but so fun! Jessica is just gorgeous in person.

It is so funny what you say about Adam and Danny because a similar thing happened for me. I don't like Danny but dsouthie made me say something to him and I did. He is so sweet. I can not dis him anymore! Matt walked in the room with his arm around Adam's shoulder and led Adam to Matt's dad. Adam and dad then had a conversation with Matt watching. Adam was so respectful and sweet to dad. I liked Adam on the show but have not liked him in concert. But when they walked in I said to myself OMG, OMG, OMG, it is Matt AND Adam. I was shocked at my response. I walked up to the little tet a tet (sp) and snapped pics. I guess I am a bigger fan of Adams than I realized! I also dislike Kris (because of Matt, I can't help myself). I leave the arena when Kris sings. At one point I bumped into someone behind me and turned around to apologize and saw that I had bumped into Kris. When I turned around and saw Kris I said to myself "oh, it is Kris" and turned back around. LOL. I could have easily said Oh Kris I am so sorry blah blah blah. I was surprised a little that I didn't even want to talk to him.

My Matt encounter there....it is weird but I somehow don't want to "bother" Matt when I meet him. I am so outgoing and talk to every stranger I see (ask Jenna!!) I would think I would gush all over the place. But I don't want a picture with him, I don't even want to talk to him. I feel like I just want to step back and watch him at a respectful distance. I always feel he is tired and could use one less person to deal with. This is a strange reaction for me but it is how I have felt every time I have seen him. But I figured I should have some kind of interaction. So I walked up to Matt and took his hand in mine (!). I said Hi Matt it is nice meeting you (even though I have met him before). He gently squeezed my hand and looked at me with a smile on his face and said he was happy to meet me. Perfection!

Matt's mom walked by me and I said that I had a story for her. We chatted for a couple minutes, mom to mom! She is so beautiful. She has the sweetest, kindest nature, very gentle. Matt's sister April walked by and mom brought April over and introduced her to me!!!! How sweet is that! April is very beautiful as well and adorable. My god, this whole family is gorgeous, sweet, kind, gentle, friendly.

I also met Matt's uncle outside. He was standing next to me and started talking about the concert. I said yes it was a good concert and I am a huge Matt Giraud fan. He said he was Matt's uncle! We then talked for 15 minutes. I gushed over Matt and he gushed over Matt. I told him that a group of us had met on the internet and came together for this concert and weekend and that some had come from Denmark, Georgia, Indiana and Ohio. He teared up and was so touched. He told me that he liked my spirit and was going to tell Matt about it. It was a very adorable, touching encounter.

The whole concert experience was a love fest. The girl sitting next to me at concert was not a fan of Matt's and liked Adam. Well she screamed so loud for Matt during his whole set, I could hardly hear myself scream for all of her noise. Yay Michigan!!

What an amazing night!! We are all some blessed and lucky people! We came through for Matt and he came through for us! Smile

I wanted to post the picture with me and Matt. Now I think Amie or somebody got the picture of me and Matt in the afternoon...but this was from the Afterparty.

Wow! where do I even start..I just want to say that the trip to Monaco Bay on Saturday night was just soooo emotional for me..It was really very hard because I would look over at this huge pic of Matt on the wall from when he use to play there and I would just start crying..It was like I felt this pride well up in me "for him" because of how far he has come and also just the thought that I was sitting there in the bar he use to play in night after night..just sooo truly special. And I really liked the female piano player named Rhonda in particular..she was great! She got up and danced her butt off on the piano's! Surprised I think I didn't really care about the two guys there because they weren't Matt.. Embarassed and plus Matt can sing WAYYY better then them!


So I'm sure you can already probably tell from everyone's posts that went to the show it was just soooo freaking awesome! Like a dream come true for sure! Now prior to the show as me and Cecilie was sitting in our seats getting ready for the show to start I saw Matt's dad like right down the aisle from us and I was like OMG Cecilie there is Matt's Dad! I gotta go tell him how wonderful of a son he has! I will tell you right now that meeting Matt's Dad (& Mom later) and just being able to shake their hands and tell them everything I had been wanting to tell them for so long was a very emotional and moving thing for me...I know this is going to sound really weird and maybe silly but I'm feeling so much contentment and peace now that I got to FINALLY do that...I feel like mission accomplished! cheers His Dad is awesome and very nice...he is so proud you can tell..and his mom is just very quiet, sweet and pretty..you can so tell why Matt is the wonderful person that he is because he has a little of his mom and a little of his dad in his personality..you can really tell this after meeting them. Very special! Smile


Ok on to the show....I'm SO happy and glad I got to be on the Floor very close to the stage for this hometown performance because you just really get a better feel for the whole thing as it's going on RIGHT in front of you. This time I was bound and determined to just totally focus right on Matt and not worry about taking pics or looking at the video screen (last time I couldn't decide whether to watch him or the screen!) Razz so anyways...OMG before Matt came out the screams and the noise was just deafening and I just remember my heart pounding and I was sweating (it was HOT in there) and then he came out! I have to say I totally agree that I think Matt had absolutely his best night ever on singing his songs...his piano playing at the end of Hard to Handle was just OFF THE CHARTS!!!! AMAZINGGGGG!! LOVED THE VERY END & THE WAY HE FINISHES OFF with such a BANG! and I know he had to be tearing up on Georgia because I was tearing up too (as I'm sure alot of people were) ..it was very moving. Oh and YES I definitely heard the Sign Matt Giraud chant but the other screaming was so loud that you couldn't get it going because it was being drowned out...His YFM was beautiful as always (SPOT ON) and when he came out of the floor for Tell her About it..he had the biggest smile on his face and you could tell he was the HAPPIEST MAN ON EARTH!! ..I just loved the whole thing! I will also say that I really respect Danny and think he did a great job singing that night and LOVED the shout out he gave to Matt! (very sweet) almost all of them were very sweet to Matt and giving him shout out's..I was very surprised when Megan didn't say anything?? hmmm.. Twisted Evil just jokin Razz

Ok the meet and greet afterwards...Like I said to the rest of our group a couple of times... I said I just think the Stars were in Alignment for us because everything just worked out perfectly...we had this FANTASTIC time with Matt at the fences that day and then this happened and I was just like OMG..I can't believe this is happening..I kept wanting to pitch myself...so on to my experience with Matt..Matt's friend Tiffany (extremely sweet girl) that helps promote him, etc..took me and Jenna over by where Matt and his dad were standing and told him how much Jenna had done to support him with her website and stuff and how we had passed out all the CD's and stuff that day and so anyways I'm just kinda standing there thinking in my head "OMG, OMG"..haha.. then I said can I have a hug Matt and he goes oh sure hun and as he hugged me, MY cheek was actually touching HIS cheek and he said "Thank you Baby"...squeeeeeeee!! hahaha...he is so damn sweet! I just love him.. then I asked for a pic with his Dad so I got a pic with me in the middle and it's actually a somewhat decent pic of me this time considering I think the other two of me really Suck that I've had with him alone at the fences. Rolling Eyes (acourse Matt is always beautiful) But guys it was just so surreal to be mingling in the same room with his friends and family..truly, truly very special..one of the best days of my life next to the birth of my children.. Smile for sure! Oh ya and I loved meeting his little brother..He was so cute and sweet! I got a pic with Kris and also one with Danny (which is awful of me)..I didn't necessarily want one with anyone else but thought, oh what the heck their here! Ha! At one point towards the end Matt was talking with some friends and stuff and he started doing that cute lil voice of his and was all animated and me and Jenna were like awwww... Surprised

I'm so glad that I got to experience this with all my friends here from the forum!! they are all great and Miss dsouthie girl has got it goinnnnn on!! hahaha..Love ya girl..she is sooo outgoing and she knows how to charm the guys for sure! oh and the girl can DANCE too!!! bounce

Well as soon as I can get to a non work computer I will download my pics cuz I'm really excited to get them posted!! Thanks again SGR for letting us stay at your house and thanks everyone else for a greatttttttt weekend!! cheers

From MJ's


Quote :


Saw Matt G’s dad while we waited. How did we know? He was wearing a shirt that said “Matt G’s Dad”. Also saw a chick in a shirt that said “Sign Matt Giraud”.


Then there’s a pause and GR gave Matt some love. There was a noticeably longer period before he appeared, and everyone was screaming. I’m glad for Matt. Matt came out kicking ass, but I was surprised because I thought he started on piano. (Told you I didn’t watch the videos.) My husband was all happy because he LOVES “Hard to Handle”. The Fray song still left me cold, and husband said Matt should have done his songs in reverse order. Matt threw a hat out into the crowd at one point. I gave him lots of love – I shrieked again. The woman in front of me FINALLY put in earplugs, after sticking her fingers in her ears for a long time.

My Matt encounter there....it is weird but I somehow don't want to "bother" Matt when I meet him. I am so outgoing and talk to every stranger I see (ask Jenna!!) I would think I would gush all over the place. But I don't want a picture with him, I don't even want to talk to him. I feel like I just want to step back and watch him at a respectful distance. I always feel he is tired and could use one less person to deal with. This is a strange reaction for me but it is how I have felt every time I have seen him. But I figured I should have some kind of interaction. So I walked up to Matt and took his hand in mine (!). I said Hi Matt it is nice meeting you (even though I have met him before). He gently squeezed my hand and looked at me with a smile on his face and said he was happy to meet me. Perfection!

Matt's mom walked by me and I said that I had a story for her. We chatted for a couple minutes, mom to mom! She is so beautiful. She has the sweetest, kindest nature, very gentle. Matt's sister April walked by and mom brought April over and introduced her to me!!!! How sweet is that! April is very beautiful as well and adorable. My god, this whole family is gorgeous, sweet, kind, gentle, friendly.

I also met Matt's uncle outside. He was standing next to me and started talking about the concert. I said yes it was a good concert and I am a huge Matt Giraud fan. He said he was Matt's uncle! We then talked for 15 minutes. I gushed over Matt and he gushed over Matt. I told him that a group of us had met on the internet and came together for this concert and weekend and that some had come from Denmark, Georgia, Indiana and Ohio. He teared up and was so touched. He told me that he liked my spirit and was going to tell Matt about it. It was a very adorable, touching encounter.

The whole concert experience was a love fest. The girl sitting next to me at concert was not a fan of Matt's and liked Adam. Well she screamed so loud for Matt during his whole set, I could hardly hear myself scream for all of her noise. Yay Michigan!!

Thanks for sharing your story. I enjoyed it so much, since I didn't get to come up w/ the Georgia group.

Holy WOW you got to go to the Official Matt Afterparty? I'm sooo jealous! I can officially say that Matt ditched me to hang out with you guys!! I actually won the Ford Focus contest and got Afterparty passes! Matt was only able to stay for a little while because he had to go to his own party! I'm so grateful that I got the time with him that I did. He was absolutely wonderful and we joked around....it was so great to talk to him while being relaxed and coherent! In the video Jenna posted earlier you can see me getting a picture with Sarver. So I got to talk to Matt as well, and he remembered me from Philly when I told him my name! So awesome. The Afterparty was great because I got to meet all of the Idols and get autographs. I really enjoyed talking to Danny and Adam!! They were both super sweet and I enjoyed both of their sets. I'd really looked forward to meeting Gokey and was not disappointed! He was great to talk to and gave me an incredible hug! I even congratulated him on getting signed...haha. The first time I saw Adam's set in Philly I plugged my ears!! But somehow in GR I liked him much more and we had some eye-to-eye moments, and he told me he remembered me! Don't worry though ladies, I am still ALL about Matt!

I also had floor seats, in the 3rd row stage left with the BG's and we had an amazing time. We chanted too...we just heard lots of noise for Matt, I think it was a mission accomplished! It was really great to be there for such an emotional show.....his Georgia was heartbreaking it was so good. I personally felt like I got a couple of eye-to-eye moments with him again (sigh... ), so that was great! And YES WE THREW THE BRAS!! I am personally proud of myself because Matt picked up MY bra and twirled it around.....I died!! The crew ended up messing with it as well....so hopefully it makes the wall of fame!

I'm telling things out of order...but the whole weekend was almost life-changing. Now it seems like everything's a little sweeter, a little more peaceful...since the concert was such an amazing event and I had an amazing time with my dear dear friends. Monaco Bay was incredible, and I was so happy to meet lovethemtigers, macigirl, Cecelie, and Lisa_M! Got to meet 2kids3dogs before the show! But you guys hogged up my Matt time...how dare you!! How can I forgive you?? LOL



Hi Janizzle! It was great Meeting you in person also!! Being at Monaco Bay was just awesome wasn't it? I'm so glad we got to share this very special event with Matt! and will you pretty please forgive me for hogging your time with Matt?? Razz Razz you will be at January's show also right??

Just wondering....did MATT give you ladies the Afterparty tickets? I thought he would have, knowing Cecilie came all the way from Denmark! =) He really should be giving those passes to his die-hard fans. Last year, Michael Johns did that for his fans on every tour stop.

There was one other thing I wanted to share with everyone on here from the Grand Rapids trip..I wanted to do something special for all the girls so I had gotten Wallet Size Photo's made of Matt (My Avatar Pic!!) because I feel everyone MUST have Matty with them at all times so you can just reach in your wallet and take him out!! Laughing Cecilie loves this pic and I'm pretty sure the rest of them liked it too! But anyways I was glad to be with other people that love Matt as much as me and when I surprised them with the pics they were all just so tickled and happy! It was hilarous because Cecilie literally carried her's around with her all weekend...like when we went to Monaco bay she didn't take her purse with her BUT she had her Matty G. pic in her back pocket!! cheers Very Happy This made me really happy when they got so excited over them! Very Happy

Tigers, you tease you! When Cecilie catches her breath, this is her story to tell. Thanks to her, Matt's dad gave us the passes.

FYI: Matt does give out passes though. Wink

I wish I knew how many he was able to give away, etc. I know he has a TON of family and friends that have come to see him, so that's probably the majority of people that get passes from him. Also...wouldn't the passes that Matt's dad had, actually come from Matt himself? So technically...the girls got passes from Matt, right? Smile

Cacity, did you get passes from Matt when you met him???? I couldn't tell where your photo with Matt was taken. Just didn't look like it was by the barricades. Very Happy

I wanted to post the picture with me and Matt. Now I think Amie or somebody got the picture of me and Matt in the afternoon...but this was from the Afterparty.

That is a sweet picture! I enjoyed reading your story. The bra throwing is hilarious! You guys are so brave. cheers

Aw, thanks! Yes, trust me I would never be able to do it for anyone else! I guess the two drinks I had at the show really gave me the liquid courage I needed! LOL
