Ladynsearch Sees David Cook
….at the Chicago House of Blues.
Her review from DCO
I had the perfect night at the David Cook House of Blues Chicago Show.
Just amazing! Just perfect! I could not have asked for a better David Cook show experience.
First there was a great vibe while waiting for the VIP experience. It was fun talking with other fans. And Andrew really did a great job!
The soundcheck was so much fun. Got to hear “Take Me As I Am” finally and he did “b****”. lol.
Then I got to meet the man and the band. At the point where I was in line they were speeding it up. But, I was determined to get my hug this time. Lol. I had rehearsed my intro to him at home. And while in line was formulating how it would go when I got to him.
While I was in line talked with Andrew and introduced myself as Vicki ladynsearch and he was funny and gave a kinda whoop or woo hoo. Lol I asked if this was his job now. He said yes and I asked what happened with the internship, he said he quit because they didn’t want to pay him enough or something like that. I also met David’s dad briefly and said “Nice to meet you.”
When I got there, I first put down the presents (early birthday for him) and identified each bag briefly. Then I said I am Vicki ladynsearch. He seemed to recognize with kinda like a raised eyebrow and like oh okay type look. Very pleasant. I then said “Can I have a hug?” And so got one. YES! It was a nice strong one too! Then he put his arm around me for the pic. Somewhere in there I asked for everyone to autograph my “This Quiet Night” CD booklet and they did. And I shook hands with the whole band after the pic and even David.
Then the show!!! As soon as David and the band came on, wow you could feel the power, the intensity. Throughout the show, you knew it was a ROCK SHOW and David was a true ROCKSTAR as were each of the band members. Besides loving watching and listening to David perform, I also really enjoyed watching Devin. And he licked his guitar once. He was amazing. And Kyle did just an amazing extremely long drum solo at the end of the Zeppelin Rock and Roll cover. The crowd begging for more so he gave more. The crowd was like that throughout the show, really “whooing” throughout showing David the love and the band as well.
The show was just a blast! They truly rocked Chicago’s House of Blues! It was extremely clear you were at a ROCK SHOW!
I was so glad David performed Right Here With You (asked for it at soundcheck but they did not do it then). I love that song, one of my favorites on This Loud Morning. And I really hoped for Life On The Moon (shouted out to play it during show, not sure they even heard me) and then later they performed it. I cried throughout that performance. It is my favorite live.
The only drawback to the show was my feet were killing me so finally took my shoes off and stood on my coat for cushioning. Lol
There were a few mishaps like some were throwing things on the stage. And one item hit Kyle’s drum set. David remarked something like: so now you are throwing makeup. What do think this is a “rave”? Lol David finally told them to knock off throwing stuff on stage, forcefully and with tact and so they stopped.
The other thing that happened is a guy had to be removed from the front of the stage interrupting the end of Life On The Moon so I never got to hear that nice high note he does at the end.
Also Carolina Liar did not perform because Chad’s wife’s water broke.
But then later during the show everyone but Chad came on stage with champagne and David took a swig. He then had champagne burps later stressing them. lol
I was so happy, I should say thrilled, to have been to this show. They did 22 songs! Wow! And the crowd went wild for them. Chicago really showed David and the band the love. I screamed and whooed throughout. Lol I and some others started chanting David when they left the stage and they came back and did 4 more songs for the encore!
To sum it up it was the best night ever. And IMO the best show on this tour! But then I was there.
p.s. Thank you David and guys! I will cherish this forever!

Andrew recognized her and it sounds like Cook did too.. Ha! I wonder how many scrapbooks were in all her bags and what garbage bin they’re resting in now? Delusional.Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
