Chris Isaak Show Thursday September 7, 2006 at the Verizon Wireless Theater
Anybody who knows me knows that I don't really dance. But when asked to go up on stage and dance with Chris Isaak, I'd be stupid to say no.
So a guy is behind me and says, "excuse me." So I move over thinking I'm in his way. Then he continues to say, "excuse me". I stop and turn around and it's a roadie. He asks, "Do you like Chris Isaak"? I'm thinking, "Does the pope wear a funny hat"?* Hell yeah I LOVE Chris Isaak. He has the set list in his hands and stickers turned over. He's tells us that during the show Chris has some girls go up on stage and dance with him to one of his songs. The song was Bonnie B. I asked the guy, "Are you for real?" I turn to Neeko and say I'll do it if you do. She said sure. So he gave us some backstage passes and told us to head to the right of stage during San Fransisco days. There were 8 girls and during the song we all ran up on stage and danced while he moved around and smiled. Oh my God, he smiled at me and I was going to fall on stage. I looked at the crowd and everybody was on their feet. The lights hit and I got to see what he was seeing everynight. Unreal.
We headed off stage and I decided since he was singing his last song that I would wait in line to have him sign my CD/DVD. He did a quick change and came down and he shook Neeko's hand and recognized her then took a look at me shook my hand and said "Nice Dance"! I said something like, "Yeah right, I have no rhythm". He said, "That's not what I saw". **melt** That's what he wrote on my CD/DVD "nice dance" -Chris Isaak and drew a halo over the picture of him.
What can I say about last night? I can't get the smile off my face. I met Chris Isaak!!!
That man is such an entertainer. I'd totally go see him again. From the flashy suit to his interaction with the audience. I loved it.
