Great pix and vids. Thanks, Frag and Jess!

...Is anyone else a little disappointed that she did FG acoustic, when there's an unmanned piano RIGHT THERE?

I'm very irritated by this lol

Just got back from the first Milwaukee show. No crafting tonight - it's a fairly small lobby so there just wasn't room. Asked someone on her team why there was no meet and greet, and they said there just wasn't room in the venue with her having a band, staff, and family on the road.

The Northern Lights Theater is a fantastic venue (I've been to many shows here, including four of Jewel's). It only holds 500 people on two levels, and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are amazing. The stage was too small for her video screen, but the venue has screens on either end of the stage, and the way they are positioned, you can see them from the stage. It was fun watching Jewel watch some of the pictures on the screen. Her eyes lit up and she smiled while she was singing. Atz also stopped during the video of him and her yodeling when she was a kid, and pointed out that he was wearing the same shirt.

She was rather chatty tonight - asked the audience to tell her about themselves, did a brief Q&A, and was rather impressed with the song requests. Other than Foolish Games, no one was requesting hits. We got Break Me and A Boy Needs a Bike Tonight. Many people were requesting Mercy and she promised to play it, but must have forgotten.

Foolish Games broke my heart tonight in a way it never had before. I was on the verge of tears during most of the song. I've never heard her sing it before with such emotion and pain. I may be wrong, but she appeared to be on the verge of tears as well. The blues arrangement of Silent Night was also incredible.

Atz and the boys were pretty entertaining. Nikos is a rather handsome man! During White Christmas Atz was out in the audience dancing with people.

Great audience - you could hear a pin drop while she sang.

Can't wait to go again tomorrow! I'll link some pics and vids soon.

Setlist:
Joy to the World
Jingle Bells w/ Kase (he then whistled Daydream Land as well)
The Christmas Song
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
O Holy Night
Ave Maria
Hands
Break Me
A Boy Needs a Bike (my request!)
You Were Meant for Me
Foolish Games
WWSYS
Homestead Yodeling Christmas
My Father's Daughter
Silent Night
White Christmas
Let it Snow

I am so jealous of you guys who get to see this tour! I am of course listening to Joy, the best Christmas album ever.. and there are songs in that CD that give me major chills. She is unbelievably fantastic. :wub:

Another great show in Milwaukee tonight! Very chatty with the audience tonight. Asked how many gay men where there. Told someone that if they aren't gay they should be because they were absolutely fabulous.

Was hoping to hear Mercy tonight, but she literally flipped a guitar pick and Angel Standing By won. When I requested it, she asked my what my name was and I told her how fabulous she is lol.

She played Near You Always and forgot the bridge, so she played it a few times until she got it. Then she couldn't remember the last verse so someone came out from backstage with the lyrics.

No WWSYS tonight, which was fine by me. Overall another successful two-night stint in Milwaukee!

Setlist:
Joy to the World
The Christmas Song
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
O Holy Night
Ave Maria
Hands
Intuition
Angel Standing By
Near You Always
YWMFM
FG
Homestead Yodeling Christmas
My Father's Daughter
Silent Night
White Christmas
Let it Snow

Holy crap, Frag - that picture is gorgeous!

There's a little sass in these:

Well, I didn't watch 'em all, but Georgie did! She's much more dedicated than I am, it seems.  :hide:

I did check them against the setlist and it does indeed look like everything, in reverse order, excepting I'm Sensitive.
