Icon33 Orlando Report! March 2003

Hi all - thought I'd give you a running report from each day here in Orlando, Florida!

Having said that, not much to report tonight - arrived late this evening after a bumpy flight from San Francisco via Los Angeles! Heavy rain storms over Texas, so they said!

First things first - at check-in, was told no paper tickets are being issued for the gig on Thursday...for anyone who made a booking via the reservations, you'll be advised to check back at 5:30-ish on Thursday afternoon, to confirm your show reservation - basically, they'll check you on "the list" and after that, you'll be all set to go!

The gig itself will be in the Lobby, so it's going to blow the doors off, judging by the size of the place



If any of you are here already or are going to be around tomorrow (Wednesday), be sure and look out for me...I'll be the scruffy one, walking around with my white CTC T-Shirt Dont' be shy, come up and say "Hello"!!

For all the Brits reading this....don't think I've come across a Yank yet...everyone I've spoken to, so far, is from the UK!! Unfortunately, The Velvet Bar, had a very poor choice in music tonight....really bad British 80's new wave and disco...Human League, Soft Cell and the like!! I'll be sure and have a word with the Hotel Manager tomorrow

Anyway, that's it for now....will continue this post tomorrow night - hopefully will have bumped into some GHCP by then

Thanks for that report....ya gotta be kidding me, our GH is playing in a HOTEL LOBBY???????!!!!! That is amazing!!!! I don't care though I'd go to hear him sing on the roof of the place. Still, I imagined it would be a club with a stage.

Yeah! I'm easy to spot as well David. I'm the glum looking kid sat in sunny Hull, England, rather than being there!

Yeah, in fact, they build a stage at one end of the lobby...it's a lot more spacious than the picture let's on!

The acoustics should be interesting, as there are tall ceilings - hopefully none of the windows will shatter when GH hits a high note

Today was a toasty day indeed - high 80's and sunny

Seems the Management heeded my advice about the music....Trapeze was heard throughout the hotel most of the day, topped up with Deep Purple, Bad Company and other 70's sounds...a real trip hearing this stuff in a hotel!

Here's an update for those of you who are staying at the hotel and/or yet to check-in....your Velvet Sessions "All Access" VIP Passes will be ready for you to pick up when you check-in...so be sure and ask for them!

Looks like the Meet'n'Greet is for Pass Holders Only - you'll not only meet with Glenn, but also Gabi and all members of the band! This will be held in a special aftershow private room - all the details are in your VIP Package containing your passes.





Hope everyone else is enjoying these reports....for those unable to be here, I know it's probably making you extremely jealous but I thought you might like a day-by-day report....to make you feel like your here in spirit at least! It's not often we get to see Glenn live and solo in the USA - so making the most of it

Today they announced the show publically, so that regular hotel guests can join in the fun - however - for them, there is a $20 cover charge - it should be packed!





Later in the day, I headed over to the Velvet Bar in the hotel and met up with Lou Carrier, the Hotel Manager - it's Lou we really have to thank for helping us coordinate all these activities - he's been a star! He told me of many celebrities who may make an appearance tomorrow night, from both the rock and pop world....but I won't spill the beans, instead will let you know tomorrow who actually did show After about 1/2 hour, a Fan Forum visitor, Bill Redford, spotted my CTC T-Shirt and came over and said "Hello".

Bill Redford, David and Lou Carrier


Also, finally got to meet another Fan Forum and GHPG.net regular and the CTC CELEBRATIONS Competition Winner - MAZ1969...we had a good old chat about Glenn and his music. He also picked up his other prize, a Hard Rock Hotel Leather Jacket - not that he needs it here....but a great prize - $300 in the Hard Rock Shop - but FREE for Chris! I also met a wonderful couple, originally from New York, but now Tampa residents, Kenny & Carolyn Grady - we all talked about Glenn from Trapeze & Deep Purple, up and through to his most recent days, plus Rory Gallagher, Stevie Marriot, Wishbone Ash, Gary Moore and many, many others!

After Lou headed home, all of us continued to hang out at the bar and at around 9:30pm, we spotted Glenn, Gabi and the band at the check-in desk, after they grabbed something to eat at one of the restaurants...Gabi came over to say "Hi", followed shortly thereafter by Glenn and the guys, who were absolutely fantasic and invited us all to join them at their table. After lots of good conversation and insight into tomorrow night's show, we all headed out to get a good night's rest, in preparation for the great day ahead!

Carolyn Grady, Bill Redford, GLENN, Kenny Grady and Chris Mazzeo



Well, that's it for now....will be a great day tomorrow....look forward to meeting a lot more of you then.

Cheers!

Hey David when I first came over to Orlando in the early 80s as a young buck looking for lurrrrrrv in the land of FM radio, I was instead treated to Soft Cell too! The playlist was Urgent by Foreigner, Dont Fear the Reaper and THAT Soft Cell song...and they are still playing it aghhh Still I'm glad the Hard Rock have finally come to their senses Have a great time guys. Say hi to Glenn and Gabi.(And don't you dare do a Soft Cell cover!)

Sounds awful. Glad I'm not there. Imagine having to share a table with that Hughes bloke.

Makes me feel quite...INSANELY JEALOUS and RESENTFUL. (Not really you lucky sods.)

You know a man with a submarine, Chris? I DO hope it's in the sea and not your back yard! Beginning to wonder about my friends on here ...



The 59 bus never came - three buses came all at once but they were all number 66 and were only doing the one stop in Timbuktu! Waffling now, Chris - cos we're here and not there.

Can't wait for the photos and reviews, eh?

Hi Shirl, Chris & anyone else stuck in the UK (or anywhere that isn't a particular hotel lobby in Orlando)....

The 59 shut its doors & went just as I reached the bus stop.

Guess I'll go & play some live Glenn on the stereo & dream of better places!

Can't decide whether I'm looking forward to reports or not!!!!!! (LOL) Do you think anyone'll be mad enough to put anything on before tomorrow?

It was great getting to meet you too! Hubby was so jazzed by the whole night! He didn't go to the meet and greet the last time Glenn was here, so this was the first time he met Glenn. He was impressed, by both the show and Glenn himself.

Ok folks...last report from this 3 day marathon...it's now 2:45am on Saturday morning...I have to leave for the airport at 5:00am to catch my 7:00am early bird back to San Francisco

First off...thanks everyone for sending in all your pictures...we'll put them up on the site over the coming weekend - it was great to meet so many fellow fans

So now, I'm back in the hotel lobby...Child In Time and Send Me No More Letters just finished and Another Day is in full swing

Lou Carrier pulled out all the stops again today, allowing us to take a sneak preview at some of the newly acquired GH memorabilia....this time the ultimate....the infamous "shoeshine" boots. Glenn recently tracked them down and has generously donated them to be displayed in the Orlando property.




Later in the evening, a few of us were lucky enough to meet up again with Glenn, Gabi, Lou, Pat Travers, Jeff Kollman and friends for a pre-dinner drink at the Pool-side Bar....a great way to end a fast and furious 3-day funk fest schedule

Can't wait for the next one - over and out

Phewwwww....walked in the door a couple of hours ago and somehow have managed to keep awake up until now!! Don't remember much about the flight as I was in la-la land for most of it

Will start work on putting a page together with all the pictures including those that have been sent to us - many thanks to all who contributed so far, will add additional ones as they come in - will post again when it's all finished!

thanks for posting that David. I quite enjoyed it. i wonder if there is any more of that particular fan footage other than that song. I'm thinking that show would have had a tasty set list.
peace,

Icon34 Seems like yesterday...

I was just flashing back on that very special trip.....my first time meeting Glenn and the other GHCP's and it will always be special to me...

Seeing these clips for the first time, I am abashed to admit that I have no memory of him playing "Whiter Shade Of Paul" that night....those clips were earlier in the set; the giveaway is that Gabi prevailed on Glenn to remove his glasses so that the audience could see his eyes.

Yep...there's my big ol' Charlie Brown head bopping to the tunes...

I remember Dave Schulz's impromptu piano performance on the hotel piano in the hallway outside the Velvet Lounge after the show.....don't think I could ever hear Rick James' "Mary Jane" without thinking of him!

Thanks for the flashback David!!
