I'm blogging from New City Cafe in Knoxville, TN. Just finished lunch at a pizza place across the street. Piano tuner just left. Sully (sound expert for the night) is setting up the stage and taking the front off the upright piano. Don't know how that'll sound, but it looks pretty stinking cool. I trust him. Jim, the recording engineer, is on his way, somewhere in Knoxville traffic. Brian is setting up the merch and Compassion International tables. Cameras are charging. Set list is taking shape. In a few hours we'll play to two packed houses and try to capture it all on tape.

I'll post more as the day unfolds if I have the time. For now, everything's going according to plan.

Here we go...

Sounds diabolical!

God bless and I can't wait to hear it!

Will you post pics from the show? You've taken us on this journey of preparation and anticipation for the evening so it's kind of disappointing for those of us who can't make it. Pictures and a nice long recap would be appreciated.

Best of luck!

We will be praying for you at our Campus Crusade prayer meeting tonight.

Blogger Andy said...

Shaun, i hope you do great tonight, i wish i could be there...but i'm playing a show my own tonight. Alas. But i'm really glad everything came together for you for tonight.

Blogger Fruitcake! said...

Praying for you. Right now.

Anonymous emma said...

So hope it went well Shaun! No doubt you'll let us all know in time. What about this 'world tour' in the UK then? Gonna be in Scotland?

Blogger The Contessa said...

I'm praying for you as well. I look forward to hearing the results of the evening. May you and everyone there experience His mighty presence tonight. God bless you.

I was at the 6:30, and I have to say...awesome awesome show. Really. I usually dislike concerts more than anything, but I knew (if anyone) I had to at least give Shaun Groves a chance. I wasn't disappointed.

Rock on!

Love to see something thrown up on YouTube if you have it.

Blogger Shaun Groves said...

It's 1:20 AM. Brian and I just got to our hotel rooms. I'm exhausted but moved by all the support poured out for us here. Thank you to everyone who prayed, took the time to say a kind word here and came to the shows.

Thank you.

Detailed report coming soon.

In short, one good show. One, uh, weird show. I'll explain when I get the time.

Tomorrow, up at dawn, drive to Nashville and fly to Delaware. Are there people up there? Huh, who knew?

I have no clue if the links will show up correctly below- if not, I threw the links- and a couple of pictures- up on my site.

Thanks, Ben, for those videos. I just watched them with my 1 yr. old daughter who is now able to kind of bob in time with the music. Her first concert was seeing Shaun Groves at 13 days old (her age, not his). Although we wish we could have come home to Knoxville for this, the videos were quite nice. Thanks again. Anyone else?

Blogger Cristy said...

We just got home about an hour ago. I gave all my video to Brian last night...
