Celebration: The 15th Anniversary Tour / Re: On or Off?
« on: October 15, 2020, 01:22:43 PM »
My concern is they maybe can't "postpone" until later in the year.  When are facilities going to say we can have events?  Can the tour survive with only, say 50% capacity?  If the restrictions are in affect for another year, how many groups are going to survive?

Celebration: The 15th Anniversary Tour / On or Off?
« on: October 14, 2020, 03:46:10 PM »
So I have tickets for 2 shows (so far!) next year.  One is for a show that was postponed.  The other one I just bought.  One is local; one requires traveling.  If I'm going to travel, there's a second show I will go to.  Once you figure out the cost of a plane ticket, hotel, rental care, etc. the second show doesn't really cost that much.

I know the CW web site is listing shows.  But, on the other hand, Broadway is shut down until May 2021.

I tend to believe that IF the tour goes forward, there will NOT be any M&G's. 

My poll question is "Do you think there will be shows next year?"  Maybe the real question is what will happen with COVID, but this is a CW forum.

Since I live in Florida, I'd normally go to this show.  BUT, I already have a ticket to see CW in Morgantown, WV the day before.    And, no it's not possible to fly.  Tallahasse has limited flights even though it's the capital of FL.

But remember, David was only playing in the DVD taping.  He was not only tour (except maybe the first one or two shows)

I tend to concur with the comments from c402c1.  My first CW show was back in 2007.  Yes, for a number of years it was what I called a "big" show.  Over the years, they cut back on the choir and band, so yeah, the arrangements were different. 
Evolved is a great term.

David, I think, tended to assign songs based on the individual girls' strength.  One of the issues I saw was when someone left, the new girl, whoever she was, mostly got the same songs.  It may not have played to their strength.  When the show changed and the got the right girl with the right song, it seemed to feel better.

One of the things that changed for the long-term fans was the interaction with the girls.  The old M&G's with only 2 girls allowed you to feel more connected to the performers.

As I looked back, I've seen everyone live except Deirdre and Hayley

Another thing to consider is time.  I looked at one or two of the set lists, and there is around 24 songs in the show.  If you assume 5 minutes per song, that's 120 minutes or 2 hours.  If you assume 4 minutes, that's 96 minutes or about 1 -1/2 hours.  That sounds about right.

Now, how do you divide up 24 songs?  Say 1/2 are "group" numbers.  Now you have 12 solos, so with 4 girls, that's 3 each.  If you have 5 girls, and you probably have to either drop a couple of group songs or make the show longer. 

Going way back, maybe the show was longer.  I just don't remember.

I thought the reason Chloe was going to miss a few shows this year was because they were scheduled before she agreed to come back to CW.  I had tickets for one of her shows in the middle of the tour.  (Savannah, GA).  Does the show we are discussing indicate that Chloe's return to CW was only for 1 tour? 

What's going to happen next year?  No idea.  I have tickets for 2 shows and am considering a 3rd.  Since I have to travel for one of my shows, I might as well see 2 shows back to back.

Celebration: The 15th Anniversary Tour / Re: 2021 Tour

Chloe has said she is touring with CW next year.  For a couple of years prior, she was doing solo shows.  Even last year, she was taking a couple days off the CW tour to honor her individual show commitments (I even had a ticket for one of them). 

Kind of the same thing with the couple of Lisa Kelly shows.  They are "smaller" and not as scripted.  I tend to enjoy them more.

Celebration: The 15th Anniversary Tour / 2021 Tour

So it appears most of the 2021 dates are now up.  I still had a ticket for one of this year's cancelled shows which I let roll over to 2021.  I started seeing if I could plan another road trip. 

I have always tried to buy thru PBS so I could get a M&G, especially since Chloe is touring with CW.  So far none of the PBS stations I checked with have anything listed on their web sites.  Yes, for most of them it's probably too early.

However, I'm also guessing that there will not be any M&G's next year due to COVID. 

At least I got a second row in St Pete, FL.  What's getting out of hand with the venues is not the ticket cost ($123.50), but the over $30 in added fees (handling, etc).

If Chloe was touring on her own again next year, I'd probably not travel to see a CW show.

Songs from the Heart / Re: Set List

The only difference appears to be the one does not list O America.  However, they both have The New Ground.  Why do I seem to remember The New Ground being used as the "intro" to O America?

I'm trying to remember where I had heard this, but...

The initial show was only supposed to be a one-time event.  After the show, someone got the bright idea that maybe this could be a continuing show. 

I've been to 2 shows in Cleveland.  Both times, one of the girls commented that "this was where it all began".  July 20, 2005.  That kind of plays into the CW Limited set up.  Does it take 5 or 6 months to set up a tour, especially from scratch?  Yes.

If you continue on with this same thought, starting rehearsals in June for a July show isn't necessarily unreasonable.

Finally, did they have to wait until Chloe turned 16?  Since they are touring the US, I'm sure there are a bunch of regulations concerning number of hours a "minor" can work, etc.

Saw back to back shows in NYC on March 13 & 14, 2009.  Isle of Hope tour.  First shows I went to with my then 15 year old daughter.  The line in Isle of Hope "who was all of 15 years" made an impression on my daughter since we had been to Ellis Island that day.
