Olympia revisited… because I can

Screen Shot 2018-05-17 at 11.10.41 AM


With all the excitement and amazingness of the Pacific Northwest leg of David’s tour, I forgot to actually post my Olympia videos here. AND THEY ARE AWESOME IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF!

Not because my videos are awesome but because that whole show was something special. It happened a mere couple of hours after David’s, ahem, revelatory insta post and I don’t know if that freed him up to let loose and be especially amazing but that’s what happened. Plus, the crowd was so enthusiastic and loving and he just fed off of that. PLUS, maybe some of the best acoustics I’ve ever experienced.

So for anyone who’s interested, please enjoy!!!

[in order of performance]

Spotlight Down… so much feeling… just remember what happened that afternoon

I’m Ready... the applause at the beginning was for David’s heartfelt introduction (which, of course, I didn’t record 😥 ) but it shows you how awesome the crowd was and how they showed him so much love. *sniff*

Thunder... I swear he rocked this even more than usual but it’s hard to tell because I was FEELING it! (Sorry for the cinema verité camera shakiness 🙂 )

Someone to Love… why oh why did I not leave the video running to catch David and Desmond and Jay nodding and thumbs-upping each other afterwards because they all felt how amazing this was! Soulful gahroovitude at its finest!

Other Things in Sight... same thing happened after this one… soooooooooo good!

Numb… SO much feeling, such an amazing song… wowed me all over again!

Intro to Beautiful... no shuffling, no rustling, just 100% rapt, mesmerized attention to every word. Amazing. (I am so sorry I didn’t get Scars but I love it too much and rock out too much to have been able to hold … well, anything… my arms were literally in the air like I just didn’t care… apologies!)

[EDIT… oh wait, the lovely Stephany caught it!!!!]

Greatest Showman Medley... everybody sang along, so cool

Postcards in the Sky… this song is life, I love it so…

Aiming for Hope... I openly sobbed all the way through this, I just hope you can’t hear it on the vid… heartbreakingly beautiful.

I Could Only Imagine… tears again… incredible… actual gasps from the crowd

Crush... and there was one… see next vid 🙂

Post Crush crush... love this!!!

(Note: Probably the lovely & amazing Shelley’s pic up top because she is lovely and amazing.)

Dare you to find a thread better than this thread. 😆 😆 😆

    Thanks for revisiting Olympia TOfan! Going through the videos and loving them. David is always such a nice distraction and beautiful enjoyment from the woes and blows of the world. Thankful for inspiring music and great artists.
    Looks like someone almost pulled his arm off after the concert… in their excitement, lol.

    Thank you for the trip down recent memory lane. Olympia was very special indeed. I awed by David surpassing himself every time I see him. Olympia was indeed the night of the “ahem, revelatory insta post” and I think we collectively held our breath at the start of his VIP Q&A. It went really well, though. Every day since that post I’ve thought of David and worried.
