Looking forward to the return of Miss Dolly to the stage of the Filene Center in Vienna, Virginia... Her last appearance there was June 1992, nearly 20 years... prior to that it was August 1979, both shows of which I attended... What a great was to end July than a night under the stars with the fabulous, Dolly Parton!!!!
I will see ya there Mr.Doug!!
I will be there too!! Woo Hoo! Dolly road trip from CT to VA!! See you there!
Sure wish Dolly had a meet & greet at this concert!! I'm coming from Kentucky to see her and would love to get a chance at winning a meet & greet!! :(
Twice in the mid-80's, I had tickets to see Dolly and twice she had to cancel due to health problems. Seeing her in Vienna will be the fulfillment of a life-long dream. I do wish there was a meet and greet. I was asked once, with whom would I like spend 5 minutes with (celebrity), living or dead, and my answer was Dolly. Dolly, you are a joy and an inspiration! Can't wait to see you!
Keep checking close to the date of the show. If you notice the meet and greet applications stop right before the show... I am sure there will be an opportunity... I will keep my fingers crossed for you! I as well am looking forward to the opportunity... I will be in Connecticut the nite before... so we shall see... Take care and good luck!
Can not wait for Dolly's return to Wolf Trap. See you all there
Dear Ms. Parton, My sisters and I will be bringing our Mom to your show on July 31st. She has no idea where we are taking her and she will be so surprised to see you on the stage! We know we are asking a lot--but could you please send out a special song to our Mom? Her name is Mary Kathryn Ayres, she is very special to us, and we tease her that we can't take her anyplace because she "steals all the men" with her flirting! Looking forward to the show!!!
Hello fellow Dolly friends! Due to my family being under major financial distress and the untimely death of My Mom,the one who nurtured my love for Dolly,I was unable to purchase tickets for Dolly's Vienna Show. I am in dire need of 2 tickets. If you have any extra please let me know where they are and how much you want for them. I hate to pay the price on StubHub. But must go,never have missed her when she has been in my area,hate to now. Also would love to meet up with fellow Dolly fans before the show.Thanks sooo much!!
Thank you for the meet & greet chance!! Fingers Crossed!!!
Yay!!! Thank you!
I just noticed from all the comments, that Dolly has added a meet and greet! You have no idea how excited I just got and I'm praying that I get to receive this opportunity! Thank you soooo much Ms. Dolly!! :)
So excited for Sunday to come. I have been a huge fan of Dolly's for many years and this is my 2nd time seeing her perform live! Thank you Dolly and staff for the opportunity for the chance of the meet and greet. It would be an honor to win and meet you Dolly! Cya Sunday!!
I've got my fingers crossed I'll win a meet and greet. Thanks fan club for giving us the opportunity.
I am so excited to be traveling to Vienna Va with my dear friend Bill! I can't wait to see Miss Dolly, and hopefully win a meet and greet to get a Dolly hug! Can't wait to meet some other Dolly fans!!!
Does anyone know when they will release the names of the people who won a meet and greet?
Hi, they close the application 2 days before the show. I'm guessing it'll be Friday or Saturday when they announce them. Keeping fingers crossed!!
Thanks for the update. Fingers crossed here as well.
I just read Dolly's autobiography (1994). What an amazing and sincere story of a true star, gifted poet and consumate entertainer. I'm from Tennessee, too, and am so proud to hear her sing songs about our State and her heritage. Holding on to the hope of getting selected for a Meet and Greet pass at Wolf Trap on Sunday.

With a sold out audience, great venue like wolf Trap and the queen herself this show should be simply amazing!!! I cant wait! Hope to see all of you there!
Hi Laura, thank you for letting us know. Have been checking my email like every 10 minutes. Got nothing but it was an honor to have the chance at this opportunity. There will be a next time! I am still looking so forward to seeing Dolly perform and enjoying a great evening with her!! I know she'll amaze us!!!
Hey LauraE Just Wanted To Ask How Will Someone Know If They Have Won A Meet & Greet While Traveling On The Road From Show To Show And No Computer Handy? Do They Get A Call On Their Cell Or Now Do They Find Out They Have Won One? Thanks..
Thanks For The Information Back.
Thanks Laura for the hard work you do here on the website. I love checking in seeing the pictures of those at the meet and greets.
It was fun meeting you with the nephews up at Mystic Lake! Keep up the good work and safe travels!
Aunt Cindy :o)
As usual.... she was on her game and took the Vienna audience to a place they did not expect.. A dancing, rapping, over the top total entertainment package featuring the one and only — Dolly.... Saw the Connecticut show last nite, then Vienna tonite... I am blown away... Have seen concerts for the last 35 years, never anything like this... including the big Vegas show in 1981... Congratulations on achieving the goal of entertaining the audience... Everyone wanted more, and was not ready to leave...

Amen to that Doug! Dolly was so engaging and over the top entertaining! I'm still laughing about the " big as a bat" bug and her high protein diet! Lmao!!!! I agree I've been to so many shows over the last 30 years myself and cannot remember her being this energetic! Dolly was simply STUNNING!!!!!
Looking at the M&G pictures makes me think not many Dollyites are getting in....sad :(( 2-10 per show doesn't seem very likely. Most of the pictures are of groups and dollyites can only be by themselves....wish we could get lucky!! either way, the show was AMAZING!!!
And at the CT show, she made mention of some of the actors from Joyful Noise and that young girl who seems to be up and coming. With all those people there, I wouldn't think she'd have time for many others. Was such a great show though. I'm still so excited to have seen it. Will always love Dolly :)
Yeah, seems like alot of people!! Amazing how many people want to meet Dolly!! LOL Who wouldn't?? It was a great show!
True very very few fans are getting meet and greets.... Only Dollys band and there family, security and there family and people that work at the venues and there family.. No fans.. I wonder if all these people paid there fan club dues,buy her cds,go to Dollywood, or just support her with anything she does. NOT!!!!
I went to your show on the 31st, and was in awe the whole time!! You were truely amazing!! I am 16 and you have been my hero since i was five, i really would love to meet, and i am audtioning in Jan for Dollywood, so maybe one day we will meet. Thank you, and God Bless
