Can't wait for the show, this will be my first Dolly concert, to celebrate I am flying my mother up to QLD to take her along with me. Counting the Better days :o)
It's abit like me too Kyle,I'm flying my aunty up to go see Dolly in Brisbane on the 26th.It's been my dream to see Dolly live & I'm finally doing it.
6 more sleeps.....nuff said
otherwise i'll go into blabbering mode ><
Hahaha exactly...I'm counting the sleeps...the excitement is incredible...Dolly Fever has hit :o)
hehe i've had Dolly fever for 30 years! and i'm only 36!....omg i wasn't going to say anymore due to blabbering but oh well.....wooohooo! i can't wait to see her sing...my dilema is i've only been to one concert in my life and that was couple of years ago and it was Pink...it was great but i didn't stay the whole show cause i kind of freak out with that much people surrounding me. However i think if i concentrate hard enough on Dolly and the music i'm hoping i'll be ok! also applied for a meet&greet... not holding my breath though ;( but good luck to everyone who has applied for one!
oh and 5 more sleeps!!!!
4 more sleeps...though i should say 3 as i will not be sleeping the night before, OMD!!!
haha exactly...no sleep the night before for me either :)
I think we need a Dolly calendar to count the days down...so close now, so excited..
I so wish I was able to go to more shows :) but one show is better than none...it will be a night that lives in the memory forever!
yeah definately...hey does anyone know how to 'unnattend' a show here on the site? lol i accidently clicked on the 3rd bris show but not going...wish i could but getting my kids babysat three nights in a row...well i can't put the babysitter through that LOL
i'm sooo nervous..i have plastered myself to my seat and i'm gonna sit here until i know either way whether i've won a meet and greet!! i feel like i'm gonna have a panic attack lol sooo what does one do when their biggest and only dream does come true? whether i meet her or not it is the last and only chance i will get to see her live and that has been my only dream in 30 years...what am i gonna do afterwards? lol no idea, no other dream will be as big, just little goals...what would you guys do if your only dream came true and you wanted nothing else?
I can't wait. I'm glad i'm not the only one plastered to my seat, I am excited, nervous, anxious, happy, and I want a meet and greet so bad that I can taste it. When do we find out???
i think it's supposed to be 2 days beforehand, but i'm not sure when in the day lol
I'm not 100% sure, but its either a day or two before the show that the emails are sent out I think.
I am checking my mail so often, and its not easy to do with my fingers crossed :) Like everyone, I'm so excited, nervous and anxious and just praying that I might get to meet the lovely Dolly in person, but the wait is nearly over for us...and before we know it, it will be show night :)
Oh Wow... I'm so excited... I just got my golden email.. another dream come true.. not only will I get to see Dolly perform, but i will get to meet her in person.. Thank you Dolly...Thank you to the web site :)
Good luck to everyone who has applied and look forward to seeing you there :)
holy cow...so did i....OMD i need to take a valium or something...lol well if i had one
I got the golden email and even printed it out on Gold paper. OMG, we will get to meet Dolly!!!! and we will get to meet each other.. Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
yeah bloomin trippy hey
what time are you guys going to turn up?
We are going to turn up about 5pm to ensure that we know where to pick up our Pass. But, they say to be there about 6.30. We are gonna turn up early because I noticed that some people at the hunter valley show could not find where to go for the meet and greet and we want to make sure. See you there!!!! We will be in loud Shirts, Glitter and Glam!!!! :)
I'm not quite sure what time I will get there, early as possible I hope.. just we have to travel a bit.
Hey should we message each other with email address, so maybe we can arrange to meet up, that way none of us will get lost and find the right place in plenty of time? just a thought, as I too saw a post about people missing the meet & greet as they were unable to find the right place to go :(
Yes that would be good Kyle. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
just emailed you Josh :o)
Good morning Kyle,
It's Dolly Day.
C u tonight, with bells on.
Hahaha morning Josh....it is indeed Dolly day... My god I'm so excited!!! see you tonight :)
Can you email me your mobile number and i'll reply with mine, that way we can meet up as a team and stake out the location of the meet and greet and pick up our pass.
Done :) email me back with yours..haha
Kyle i'm sending you a pm with my mob number so we can text if one of us gets lost lol can you pm or text back so i have you number? cheers
wow this blog message is really wierd hey is it just me or is it doing one word a line lol
Just sent you a message :) it is strange, i get one or two words per line too..
Hi there! I see you've won a golden ticket! Congratulations! I've applied tonight for Saturday nights show. I sooooo hope I win! Keep your toes, fingers and everything in between crossed for me! I hope Dolly is everything you hoped she'd be and more...I'm sure she will be! Shes fabulous! Let us know how she is!!!!!! Congratulations again!
Hi Kyle, First congrats on getting a meet in greet with Dolly you are so so lucky. Unfortunatly I didnt get one. Was just wondering if you could do me a favour. If you cant as I know your time with Dolly will go quite quick I understand. I am going to Fridays nights concert and will be in the 3rd row. I have made something special to give her. Just wondered if you would let her know that I will be tring to give her this gift. Just really hoping to pass it to her in person as thats the closest I'm ever going to get. If you could THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. But if not understand as your time with her is very precious.
So sorry to hear you didnt get a meet & greet, from what i understand, time is very limited with the meet & greets, like down to a few seconds.
Maybe you could perhaps ask the security people at the oncert if they would be able to pass your item to Dolly? I think there is usually a small fence type thing constructed that makes it impossible to reach up to the stage, but perhaps Security might be able to pass the item on for you? worth asking them for sure..
I hope you have a fantastic time at the show, did you get good seats?
Thanks Kyle, Know that it is very quick, got to do one with Kenny Rogers the last time he was here and you dont get much time at all. I'm in section S9 row 3 so guessing about middle of the stage roughly. That was my idea to give it to the bouncer but thought if she knew it was coming may have a change to pass to the bounce and they pass it straight to her so she may get to see who its from.
You are so lucky enjoy every second you get with her. Have you got good seats? Cant wait one more sleep woo hoo!!!!!
does anyone know what the traffic is like on the gateway coming from the city at peak hour on a friday? if i leave around 5 (from the city) reckon i'd get there about 5.45?
Oh good question, I'm not too sure, I will try and find out some info and let you know... are you excited???
See you tonight
i am extremely excited...every time i think about it (which is every couple of minutes lol) my heart beat doubles lol
I know exactly how you feel, so excited!!!
Hey I just heard something about there being train breakdowns today and that there is a lot of traffic on the roads (people having to drive to work etc) So it might pay to leave as early as you can, i would give yourself at least an hour as the Gateway can be pretty busy at the best of times. Are there other roads that can get you there? Sorry I'm not too familiar with the area.
See you tonight... omg I'm too excited...lol
cool...dam i'm so nervous i feel like throwing up ><
I also won a meet & greet for tomorrow (saturday) nights concert...I was just wondering can you tell me what time you arrived and also where you went to meet your escort?? I just don't want to miss it!! You can email me on email@example.com or just post on here. Thanks so much..ENJOY EVERY MOMENT!!!!
Wholey cripes!!!! what a night....and gosh she is just beautifull....and i got to tell you if it was up to her i think she would chose to talk to people for longer because as it was her manager was behind her gesturing for me to get the hell out of there but Dolly couldn't see him so i was in two minds (do what he was telling me to do or stay and chat to Dolly more)then as i was walking away she grabbed my hand to talk more so she must think i'm some rude cow lol because i left while we were still talking >< man her manager needs to not strees so much!!!!! but far out what a night...will never forget it....and boy is she taller then i thought she was...amazing. and the concert was brilliant, i think her mic might have been pitched up a bit though unless that is how she sounds live normally bloomin brilliant voice
oh hey also the whole night i was busting at the seams to get up and dance and i'm not sure if this happens at the other concerts over here but the brisbane crowd was really subdude and only got up to dance at the end!!!!!So i think tomorrow night i'm gonna dance my heart out and not care what people think lol
she was also really funny and just cracked me up!
Oh i noticed that too, and actually someone did get up, and someone near us yelled for them to sit down :(
I so wish i was going again tomorrow night..lol
Could not agree more!! what a night, and it was so nice to meet you, and was so glad to hear you enjoyed the concert :)
Dolly is just the most amazing and lovely lady, and I feel so lucky to have been given the chance to meet her, a moment i will never forget.
I did notice you & Dolly were having a good old chat, but you were rushed off, and i was rushed in right behind you before you had even left...haha Im completely sure Dolly understood that everyone was rushed through..I hope Dolly liked the little pressies I gave her, she seemed to like the stuffed toy (Echidna) haha
The show was amazing!!! and it was so great to meet you guys from here.. we will have to work out a way to swap some pics...i think there was a group shot taken?
take care everyone...now to try and get some sleep...like that will happen :)
yeah it was great catching up with you guys...my friend took a pick i'll send it through when i get them....well it's 2.30 and i'm still awake >< i really can't remeber half the coversation and no idea what she was saying to me when i was walking off....was a trippy night for sure
and yeah you should go...i'm really happy i'm going again...wish i could go to all 3 but alas....kids with babysitters 3 nights in a row = cranky lack of sleep kids and a pissed off babysitter LOL
grrr almost 3.30 and i'm still awake...considering i didn't sleep the night before and i'm going to another concert...i don't think i'm gonna feel too well ><
Hi Kyle I'm from Dunedin Nz, got the meet and greet (yahoo) and am arriving this evening for the concert tomorrow night. Would you mind telling me how difficult it is to find the window for meeting and what time you arrived? Were you able to give gifts, flowers or is that out of the question? Sorry to be a pest. Its just I arrive late and leave to come home the following morning at 5.30 and cant get any information regarding site plans. I am so pleased you loved the concert and would be really grateful for your help.
well i'm not Kyle but will answer anyway lol....us Dollyites met inside just in front of the tecketek store...we spoke to those people and they had no idea what we were talking about basically.....the people at the centre really don't know anything about it i guess it's just not their job....anyway a lady not a man lol came up to us about 7 o'clock and said we'll go down to admin in about 15 mins....it actually took ages for it to all happen and they really cut the time fine....like at 7.30 i was thinknig to myself how the hells is Dolly just gonna chill out before her concert but i guess she did all that before meeting us....oh and make sure you make someone get you the passes....just kep asking people stuff if other people don't know what you talking about... last night people handed her flowers and such then i think she passes them on to her manager...have fun tonight i'll look out for you guys when i get there as i'll probably get there early again anyway so i can sit down outside and ponder the existence of the universe lol
Hey thank you for the help. It was a great night. The meet and greet was quick but so good, thanks to your help access was smooth but not quick (you did warn me) but so worth it. She was friendly, chatty and an allround darling. What a Concert. FANTASTIC.. I loved it 3 rows from the front center could not have asked for a better night. Cheers and have a great day
