yjfanofdavid’s reflection:

I went to the concert last night in Columbus. Needless to say I am in an Archustupor right now, but I will try to articulate what I experienced. I am two and half hours away from the venue, and with all my work and family responsibilities, I didn’t think I could drop everything and go, so I was content to live vicariously through some of you.

But after reading all the reviews here, especially Josie’s, youtube is just not enough anymore. So two days before the concert, I searched the internet and found a ticket, had it overnighted to me and announced to my family I was going to a concert out of town.

Yesterday, I drove two and half hours, waited in line outside the venue for more than two hours, and then stood on my feet in the most uncomfortable and unnatural position for two more hours in a pit where everyone was surrounded by body parts from everyone else. I was in excruciating pain – my feet were sore and everything in my body was aching.

THEN The FACE with a smile brighter than the sun all of sudden materialized on the stage, and boom, all my pain disappeared ! And this is even before he sang a single note!! The next hour and 20 minutes was nirvana. I was reduced to a big grin, no longer feeling the weight of my body. Zero gravity it is!

David is a fantastic recording artist, but he is a consummate performer. His singing is not just to be listened to, it has to be WATCHED. He sings not just with his voice, but with his face, his hands, his shoulder, his legs, even his knees! Every cell in his body is singing!! The transformation from the AI tour to the tour now is astounding. His youthful exuberance emanates from every part of his body and you can’t help but celebrate it with him. His stage persona is very masculine, with a lethal touch of vulnerability and tenderness.

The crowd was in love with him – every move, every look, every hand pointing triggered deafening screams. I know we would not only gladly listen to him singing the phonebook, heck, we would watch him TYPE the darn phone book.

Just David, or a human wonder?
