First-hand reports of David Cook’s concert on the AMA Red Carpet Sunday night have been rolling in. Thanks so much to Scott and John for sharing the goods.
Scott left a nice recap in the Live blog thread HERE. Read an excerpt below
It struck me how serendipitous this all was. A small group, maybe 150 to 180 David Cook fans, treated to a private concert, to which we were accepted within hours of emailing our request, and once there, treated extremely well. All was so well organized. The day was divided into three components: David and his band performance between 2pm and 3pm. Then were moved to the bleachers 100 feet away for two hours of red carpet arrivals (of course David walked it even though he had arrived hours earlier-it all about the publicity and the interviews). And then, to our surprise and delight, EVERY David Cook fan who attended the concert was given a free ticket and brought inside to see the show! The show was amazing.
Also, check out his high-quality photos HERE.
John was also in the audience, and filmed the entire concert. The crowd attended as part of a television show, so there was a lot of waiting around and a re-do. Cook and his band sang two songs, “Declaration” and “Light On” (LO had to be redone), banter with the audience, and sign autographs before they were whisked away…
Videos after the JUMP…
Part 1 – Declaration, banter:
Part 2 – “Light On” and crowd stuff:
Part 3 – “Light On” – production asks for a redo. This is the one we saw on TV:
Part 4 – Pick throwing, hand shaking, audience interaction
