Not at $500 a seat! Just a huge fan and fascinated with her growth and progression. I think she is an extremely rare, once-in-a-lifetime talent and I AM completely hooked. But there are folks worse than me. When I attended the concert last March, I met retired folks who either were or knew what I call Jackie heads; you know, like Dead heads. They follow Jackie on her tours while paying typically up to $500 per seat, per performance, with the most extreme example being one old guy who paid $3000 to see her perform three songs, in Vegas. I met one couple who were both over 70 years old, who drove 16 hours one-way, just to see Jackie perform.

However, I did meet her before the concert. The moment she realized that I was there because of how much her music means to me and that it wasn't just a celebrity thing, we were buds.

And then there's The Official Jackie Evancho Fanclub.

How do you think I got the meet and greet ticket?

I've never felt so silly in my life - a 50+ year old man joining a fan club for an eleven year old girl! I had never even joined a fan club before. The only consolation is that her following is mostly made up of people my age and older, and young girls. There were a lot of grandparents with their grandaughters at the concert.

Now I understand why people join fan clubs. I had one of the best seats in the house [orchastra pit center] and got to meet her. It was almost like having my own private concert.

Borek, I liked that right up to the last few seconds!

Now this is really scary!!! I saw this guy in concert singing this song back when he was very cool. Cool isn't exactly the word that comes to mind now! What the heck happened?



See, it's supposed to be more like this. That first guy must be an imposter!!!
