My final UK show of 3! I'll have to wait till May 2012 to see Dolly after this at Dollywood so I'll be savouring every moment :-)
I have waited 23 years for this day I just can not wait :) I love everything about Dolly and Dollywood is my fav holiday destination I'm of there again in Dec :)
Dolly makes my life complete!!!!
We are traveling from Switzerland just for the concert in Manchester and we hope Dolly is going to sing "The Carroll County Accident" one of our favorit songs....We are very excitet to see Dolly on stage.
I have never in my life been to more than one gig for anyone but after Birmingham I had to book she was so amazing, and hopefully better seats this timeeee, everyone keep fingers crossed for me as gone through ebay as ticketmaster only had riiiight at the back left! Where you guys sitting? If mine come through will be block D do you think the view will be ok eeeee x
Hello, We are in block J row P, I have been to the MEN before but I have no idea where the seats are and to be honest I'm just happy to be going even if the seats are at the back, but I would like to be able to see her :) x
Hi Jemma, you will be able to see her no probs, i was right at the back pretty much in brum but could see fine. Better than you would think! I just wanted to have the chance to see a bit more clearly this time!xxx
Oh good, I know they put big screens up as well. I just saw you had a meet and greet with the lady herself, how long before the concert did you receive the email?? Oh goodness not sure I would know what to do if I won one!!! xx
it was 2 days before, i was so scared whenthe time came, i froze, it went by in a flash but a flash of beauty and loveliness!x
Excellent photo of you with Dolly at Birmingham. It was a fantastic concert! :-)
Thanks so much Allan! i have to keep looking at the picture! When she walked in the room she was so graceful and full of luminosity (perhaps to do with the lime outfit haha) and no one could take their eyes off her! Well obviously... I really hope you get a meet, you deserve it you sound very dedicated and I will keep my fingers crossed for you and Jemma xxxx
Thanks Jemma. I loved your Dolly T shirt! You both looked stunning. Here's hoping for the meet and greet. I have everything crossed lol x PS add me as a friend of facebook, www.facebook.com/allan.m.kent It's always a pleasure to get to know another Dolly fan :-)
Thankyouuuuu! Oops it looked like I signed off as 'Jemma' but I meant that I hope Jemma gets a meet and greet along with you! (I'm Laura)....have added you on facebook, it let me see your pics, I cannot believe how closeup they are of the doll! In one she is totally looking at you! Where were your seats, were you in the first few rows xxxx
Only six days to go! A few friends are going to the London dates but I thought three concerts was enough for my wallet although, I could easily go to them all :-) I love the setlist of this tour. Dolly sings my all time favourite song too, "Smokey Mountain Memories', brings a tear to my eye everytime. My seats for Manchester are 2nd row from the front. Can't wait. If I see you Laura, I'll come over and say hi xx
whoop whoop! I love smokey mountain memories too it breaks my heart especially when she always refers to her father being 'so homesick he almost died' ahhhhh! Oh you have great seats! Tennessee mountain home's one of my faves so I'm chuffed with the setlist too; the only thing that could make it better for me is Me and Little Andy which is the song that made me go from loveing Dolly to LOVING Dolly :-)
Please do come over if you see me, I'll do the same, who will you be there with? I'll be there with my friend Lynn, also a blonde in case you think you see us from a distance! xxx
Hey Laura, we are into Friday, so not long to wait now till the concert. Dolly really has put this setlist together with her fans in mind. I've loved hearing songs like White Limozeen that haven't been in any shows for a long time. I also love the stories in between the songs. I will certainly come over and say hello. A fellow Cardiac Nurse Jo who loves Dolly too is joining me for my last concert. Still checking my email several times a day :-)
Ok hope to see you and hope you get your email! xxxxxxx
This will be my final show of three! Liverpool and Birmingham have been amazing. Dolly rocked both concerts. This is the best Dolly show I have ever seen. The setlist is heavenly. Here's hoping for a Meet and Greet too :-)
manchester is my 2nd and final show although wish it wasnt .I got a meet and greet for liverpool that was amazing .cant wait to see you on sunday for another amazing show dolly I cant get enough and manchester i have block A row D .so cant wait .x
Only 4 days to go! Can't wait to hear all the show again but particularly Smokey Mountain Memories, its my all time favourite! I keep checking several times a day to see if I have that magic email! :-)
Can't wait for Sunday night to see Dolly in Manchester! Love you Dolly xxxx

Aw cheers hun but sadly thats not me lol its my best mate Andrea, she's in a tribute band with my hubbie and her hubbie. Tours the country doing "The Dolly Parton Story" its great fun!! I'm wardrore manager/merchandise person, not very glamourus though hahaha. I have a full time job as a nurse as well. Blimey your getting my life story here tehe!
Can't wait for Sunday, not that I know my way round Manchester, we're from Newcastle but decided to see her on Sunday. I'm sooooo excited!! I'm trying to convince Andy its a good idea to drees up as Dolly for the gig on sunday but so far shes not convinced!! xx
OMG I will come and see their show if they come to Brum anytime? keep me posted! Or i could just google it and not be lazy. Tell your friend she is a v good Dolly. And she should def wear the clobber for sunday.
Oh i'm a nurse too but the wardrobe managing and merchandise thing does sound fun :-)
I don't know Manchester either but I loved the Birmingham show so much I then decided I had to come to Manchester too! (i got post dolly blues ha!) xxx
Looking forward to tomorrow. I'll look out for you Laura :-)
Can't wait for tonight,we've just got back from Nashville on Friday in time to see Dolly for the second time.We requested many singers in the bars to sing a "Dolly" number for us but good as they were there's no-one to compare to the real thing. ENJOY TONIGHT EVERYONE !

The concert was epic... And the meet and great was so sureal im still on cloud nine!! What an amazing woman I wished I could start tomorrow all over again!
It was good to meet you yesterday and my feet certainly haven't touched the ground since! Hope photos are soon and lovely. x
oh your pic is lovely I'm so happy you won a meet!!! xxx
Dolly was amazing last night!! I've got your picture Jemma so will have to send it to you, Andrea enjoyed meeting Dolly and we both loved meeting you!! What did she say to you? Andrea was star struck and practically forgot who she was so didnt even tell Dolly she was a Dolly tribute hahaha!
Love Kelly xxx
Another amazing show! Can't wait till its out on DVD!
Yet another incredible show last night, I'm still up in the clouds after being so lucky as to have won a meet and greet with Dolly herself before the show, words cannot even begin to describe how incredible she is, and how the experience was - an enormous thank you to everybody involved in making the meet and greet possible! :)
It was so great to meet such a great bunch of people, who also won the meet and greets - thanks for making last night what it was! I knew that I'd pull a silly face in the photograph!
Good greetings to you. Your photo with Dolly is lovely and I think we were all allowed to be star struck! My sister says I look like i am going to explode with happiness and excitement and hey that's cool with me. Good to meet you! x
Love your pic as well Sue!! Lovely to meet you xx
Thank you. Lovely to meet you xx
Great to meet you all night as well, just been speaking to Andrea and she's still on a high! Your picture is fabulous and your not pulling a silly face at all its an amazing photo!
Hope you enjoyed the concert as much as us
Love Kelly and Andrea
OMG did andrea go instead of you or did you both manage to meet her? i hope you had a wonderful time!!
I was the bestest friend ever and I let Andrea go instead of me, I was disappointed to put it mildly but I know how much it meant to her and the business side of me knew that having a picture of Andrea with Dolly for the bands website meant soooo much! So in the words of Dolly......
But sometimes I wonder in the still of the night
Is it really worth the sacrifice
I've often laughed and I've often cried
I've often failed but I've always tried
I made the sacrifice"
Lol it was worth it just to see Andrea's face when she came back!!
Honestly man how kind am I??
Ahhh you're bloody amazing and a jolly good friend, and karma will see you get a meet & greet of your own next time. This has made me feel a bit emotional!! Her picture is really lovely.
Bring on the next tour now and your chance will come! Were they ok about doing the swap then?
Wow Kelly - what you did was amazing - nice one! xx
