Agghhh! If I'd known sooner I could've gone! Think she'll do anything around there again?

I'm back from the show & the night with Jade!

She performed 3 songs:
Around (NEW SONG!)
Just Around the Eyes (Faith Hill cover)
Empty Pages

I'll try to keep it short & sweet. My sister & I arrived at the venue about an hour early because I wanted to be first in line to get close to the stage. While we were waiting, the other performers came by but no sign of Jade. Finally she turned round the corner (the entrance is in the back) & I couldn't believe it. I had to do a double take & my jaw dropped. All I could do was yell her name & introduce myself. It's all a blur now but then she brought us inside where we chatted, took pictures, got to meet her friends & relatives, & watched her sound check (she performed a little bit of Around). She signed my Out of the Box album booklet too. Later the show started but we still talked during it. She closed the show & sounded perfect! I was recording the audio on my phone but for some reason it only recorded 3 minutes of it, unfortunately but I saw other people recording so hopefully we can still get her full set. After the show we went out to dinner with her friends & relatives & had a fun time because they were all so warm & funny! She was just as I expected: warm, down-to-Earth, funny, sweet. I know that I'm 100% biased as a crazy fan, but she was so kind & genuine. I'm still in shock!

I'll share pics & videos after I go through them!

OMG John I am screaming at this! She has been missing off the face of the earth since Saint Vox dropped and here you are chatting and hanging out? I need the opposite of short and sweet - I need detailed and gritty! 8) Sounds like such an amazing and personal experience - so glad you got to have this experience! You're easily one of her biggest fans so good work!

I'll share things as I remember them. For example, at dinner she was flirting with the waiter & it was hilarious!

Here's the soundcheck:


Let me know how the quality is! I'm doing all this from my phone so I'm limited at the moment.

Dang it John not only you met her but you guys chilled?! Did you tell her that our small fanbase still exists? Man you're lucky!

Lol my bad. I misread it as May 23rd. Was too excited for X-Men Days of Future Past.

I did tell her that everyone at Jade Valerie Nation says hi, which made her smile!

I forgot to mention this before. Around 0:14 in the soundcheck video, Jade looked at me recording & smiled & I gave her a thumbs up, so that's why my phone bounces a little around that time! :D

Here is the audio that I managed to get. It has her intro & up to the second chorus of Around.

To supply the context, DW (the singer/rapper who happens to be on Livin' N Stereo) danced like Michael Jackson, which explains the beginning of the audio.

Here's the show:




Some other things I remember that aren't in the videos (when she talked to the crowd between songs):
After Just Around the Eyes, Jade jokingly apologized for singing sad, sentimental songs instead of happy songs.
She said that writing Empty Pages made her feel old, or something like that but I can't remember exactly.
She acknowledged me for traveling to see her.


Isn't Around a Jade classic?! :D The powerful notes, the emotion, the metaphor-rich verses - the winning formula for every Jade ballad! I'm the one obnoxiously screaming "SING IT, JADE!" at 2:38! :lol:
