Just can't wait to see you in person Dolly...Missed your last tour due to illness and I am not going to miss this one...Come on November!!!!!Come on DOLLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi Dolly! Can not wait to see you back in Sydney again! I would so love to meet you! Will there be a Sydney Meet and Greet this tour? Stay Safe and God Bless See you soon x
Oh, yes, a meet and greet! Those of us who purchased Platium Tickets get dibs don't we? ;)
If there is a meet and greet announced, I hope to God it doesn't go unnoticed by yours truly.
I can't wait, so excited!!!
I'll be in the 5th row, tried so hard to get the first. My best friend and sister are flying in from 2 different states for the big event, we will have our make up & hair styled like 50's pin ups, hopefully Dolly will see us.. x
Can't wait to see you Dolly. I will be in the front row center of your Sydney show, i'll be wearing a checked yellow shirt. Mum and i are looking forward to fantastic night. It'd be great if you did a meet and greet.
im soooooo excited...this is how I'm going to be spending my birthday!! <3
The Queen Of England arrives tmr... but nothing is as exciting as the Queen of Country arriving in the next few weeks! Can't wait to see you dolly!
Hi dollyites - I'm looking to interview dolly's biggest Sydney fan. If you think you fit the bill, send me a private message.
hi Alicia, I think I definitely fit this description, I have been a fan since I was 8 years old, 29 years now, I flew to America in 2007 to see my lifelong dream of seeing Dolly perform in her hometown, it was after a diagnosis of kidney disease & I wanted to see Dolly whilst I was still well enough, doctors advised against it but I went anyway. I ended up getting really sick whilst over there but wouldn't change a thing. I am attending 2 of her concerts in November, have a huge collection of all things dolly & a YouTube site Dollyaddict dedicated to this beautiful unprecedented lady I love so much, the ultimate would be to meet her & I think
About that everyday, there's nobody quite like Dolly, would love to talk more if you're interested. Rachel Gorham aka Dollyaddict
I'm a Dolly fan and I'm 5'9" so I'm bigger than Dolly. It would be a pleasure to do an interview.
OMG! I have waited so long for this moment to come along! Can you believe it's just over 2 weeks to go before Dolly will fill All Phones arena and dazzle us all with her amazing talent!
Just getting more and more excited with each day! Forget Birthdays, forget Christmas! this is the event I've been waiting for!
I have entered meet and greet competiton for november 15th sydney concert. It would be a dream come true to meet DOLLY personaly. (I hope I win) Love her so much.
Can't believe it's here - After all the rumours over the years, and then the actual announcement, then the tickets going on sale and finally after all the waiting... it's 6 sleeps to go!
Steve - the countdown is on! Sydney is going to go off. I will be severely disappointed if there isn't a Dolly drag queen or two in the crowd...
I think there will be a very diverse crowd...
Young/old, men/women, butch/camp
I'm expecting a Kylie show type vibe, just with a country theme hehe
I;m going to Dollys sydney concert on tuesday are cameras allowed? Does anyone know? I would love to take some photos of Dolly on stage.
omg YAY!!!!! i am soooooo excited to meet dolly!!
I won meet and greet! finaly I will be able to meet Dolly personaly. and tell her how much she means to me! won;t be able to sleep tonight.......
I know the feeling!!! God help me tomorrow night!!!
I am in absolute total shock. I just received my "Congratulations" email for the M&G on Tuesday. I literally have no words to describe just how I am feeling right now. Can't wait....
I nearly died to open the email and see CONGRATULATIONS! I had to look twice and even a third time and re-read it over to make sure I had it right! I am so excited and nervous at the same time!
No meet and greet for me :(
So gutted right now.
Congrats to all those lucky enough to have won which is surely a once in life time oppertunity, am guessing it's just not my life time :(
I am beside myself to have won a meet & greet with Dolly for the first Sydney show. I have loved and followed her career since I was 10. I am now 36! Some things never change! he he I am beside myself with excitement and nervousness at the same time and wondering what on earth I will say to the one and only Dolly Parton.
Yeehaa!!!! Finally after years and years of waiting, wishing and hoping, the day has finally arrived! Hope everyone who is going tonight has an absolute ball!
Congrats to all the meet n greet winners! Tell Dolly I said hi!
Dolly was amazing tonight....absolutely flawless! The new songs blended with the old songs and she really showed Sydney "how it's done"! The compacity crowd were loving Dolly and from what I was hearing, she did not dissapoint anyone!!! GO DOLLY! Looking forward to the next concert!
After a good 20 years + since she last graced our shores, it could have been 20 minutes! From start to finish she treated the stage like an art work, not only covering each inch of the canvas with hit after hit, but a few master brush strokes with fan favorites (I almost wet my pants when she sung "baby I'm burning")
Dolly was amazing - engaging and delightful every single moment during the performance. Playing guitars, penny whistles, piano, and more the only thing more impressive than her abilities was her voice. Flawless in every note. I've never been a huge fan of the song "little sparrow" although hearing it live tonight, I was spell bound.
The highlights for me... Too many to mention... But will say that seeing her live, finally, was everything and more that I could have ever have imagined. Whilst DVDs give an insight to what a great show she puts on, nothing compares with being there.
The low light... Sydney audiences. I hate them. I was told to sit down numerous times by a pig headed security guard. I paid my money to dance and enjoy myself (for the uptempo songs... I understand and respect and welcome sitting down for the slower ballad ones) but just the attitude of the crowd (most... Not all - especially the true fans) is just disgusting. I've been to many concerts over seas (not dolly... But Madonna for example) and whilst I understand they differ in style and genre, I really believe that those who have paid their money and want to dance should be able to without the threat of being kicked out and repremanded by security.
But enough of all that... Dolly, thank you for giving me and my 3 friends a wonderful memory to carry with us forever. For 2 hours you provided great music, comedy, inspiration and pure bliss! I was already a fan before tonight... But now I am a devotee!
Hope everyone else enjoyed themselves, will post photos in the morning, and just incase any of you are interested or remember... I'm the one who screamed out "I love you dolly!!!!!" and she replied... I thought I told you to wait in the truck out back!!!! Such a highlight!!!!
Hi chris what a great poster. Where did you get it from? Do you have any news on our meet and greet photos. Keep in touch butterfly63
Dolly thank you so much for a wonderfull night. It was amazing, 10 out of 10. truely a night I will never forget. seeing you in person is truly a unique expirience. Thank you.
What an amazing experience. To have lived my life thus far being influenced and guided by your inspirational music is what has kept me true to myself. To have now been given the opportunity to meet you - left me speechless - literally. I tried to say something real, but could only manage tears - which you graciously wiped away.(despite your words of comfort I still managed to feel a teeny bit embarrassed) Dolly your epitomize True Human Goodness and last night I witnessed this very influence with your fans. What a privilege it was for me to be a part of this experience. Thank You Dolly for sharing your gift. I know that in another 100 years people will still be saying - Gee Dolly Parton is still great!!!!
What a brilliant and funfilled show. Dolly sounded and looked fabulous and was so much fun to clap and dance alongside fellow country music fans.
Her instrumental talent simply knocked me out :) and her stories of childhood and life, was a joy to hear and laugh about. If you are considering going to a show, STOP AND GO NOW. You will NOT be disappointed XXX
Can any of the meet and greet winners tell me about the experience? What happened - how long it happened for etc...
Can't wait to see the photos when they are posted.
I was lucky to win a meet and greet. there were only 16 of us, I made friends with a group of 3 with wich we had a photo together. even though we were very nervous waiting to see Dolly, we were taken to an underground parking where her bus was, we saw Dolly for around 15 minutes and were only allowed 1 photo and a few words with her. She looked amazing and loving as always, even though it was very rushed it was amazing to spend that small time with her, it will remain in my memory for ever. Dolly I Love you know more than ever.................
Am glad to hear it was such a great experience for you and all the other winners.
What an memory for you all to have forever!
Congrats once again!
How are you? I am one of the strays you met while waiting for Dolly...I had the Roses... :-) What a day it was for us all...quite amazing and I will never forget it. The concert blew me away and meeting Dolly made me feel like a king! Hope you are well.

I'm sooooo excited to see them..dolly said happy birthday to me and gave me a hug...such an amazing night! Most definitely a huge highlight of my life!! =)
I have never checked the site so often looking for the photos! he he I am dying to see them! I can still feel Dolly's hand touching mine and her gripping my fingers with her fingers as we had the photo taken. Was truly a magical night...and I will never forget her singing a few lines of YELLOW ROSES softly to me as we posed with the roses I gave her! I have been smiling since last night and have not stopped all day!!!!
