I just called the Tilles center to again verify that she will be performing. The woman on the phone said "We have no heard anything otherwise that she would not be performing" but at the same time, she could always cancel last minute and the tickets are non-refundable.

I imagine that if the performer cancels, then tickets would be refundable, or you would be offered tickets to one of their other concerts?
When I was supposed to go to a Kristin Chenoweth concert this past Summer, and she cancelled, I (as the buyer) was given the option to either see Patti LuPone in her place, take tickets to another concert in whatever series it was, or get a full refund.

I know all venues are different, but it's my understanding that when they say "Non-refundable", that usually means that if for example the performer is still going on, and you get sick and can't go, then you cannot return your tickets.

I also have tickets for the 15th. I also am assuming it will be cancelled--I'm hoping she won't go on. If she does, I know my heart will be breaking, knowing she puts all her feelings into her music, and knowing at that moment that all the pain is real.

I have to say, I agree. As much as I have wanted to see Bernadette in Bethlehem, it would be an emotional rollercoaster right now to go from the joy of "Nothing Like a Dame" to the introspective "No One Is Alone" or "Not a Day Goes By" or any number or other songs currently in the concert program. I don't know how any performer could do that so soon after such a tragedy. Those songs on their own terms can be rather overwhelming to me some times. Beautiful music, of course, but I maybe I'm just a sensitive dude.

I can totally see Bernadette not wanting to let down any of her fans, which of course she wouldn't-we would all understand. With as wise as Bernadette is I have a feeling she is dealing with this in the best way she can, and she feels like she needs to move on with her life-therefore I think the concerts are probably theraputic for her-although I'm sure the songs will be tough to get through...I know NOT A DAY GOES by will probably never be the same for her, nor unexpected song, amongst all the others. I give her props for continuing through-personally with such a tragedy I don't believe I would be able to sing for QUITE a long time-but I guess we all deal with things in a different way.

I had forgotten about this. Itís not the same, but itís still a performer who appears as them self, returning to work after the sudden loss of a loved one.

In 1991, Johnny Carsonís 39 year old son was killed when his car went off the road. About a week or so later, Carsonís good friend and neighbor Michael Landon died of cancer. Carson was on vacation at the time and delayed his return by a week, but some three and a half weeks after his sonís accident, he returned to the show. I watched that night because his guest was Bernadette Peters. I donít remember his monologue that night, but I know his chat with Peters was as silly as they usually were, with him once again bringing up the fact that she was still single. I wasnít a regular viewer, but I donít recall there being anything really different about that show or any mention of the past events until the end of the program when Carson showed a picture of his son (saying how only his sonís driverís license photo had been shown and he didnít think anyone would want to be remembered by their DL photo) and showed some of the photographs his son had taken recently. [Police thought his son went off the rode because he might have been taking photographs at the time]

There was also the two-time Olympic Gold medal pairs figure skater Ekaterina Gordeeva whose partner and husband died of a heart attack at age 28 when they were practicing for the upcoming Stars on Ice tour. The figure skating community put together a tribute for him that was televised. Lots of people were very surprised when she announced that she wanted to perform at the tribute, especially since she hadnít skated singles in some 15 years. Incidentally, when she rejoined the Stars on Ice tour as a singles skater, she skated to Bernadetteís version of ďNo One Is AloneĒ

I'm glad there will be a number of you attending on the 15th. After the sympathy card and donations to the charities, the only thing we as fans can do is show our support by attending her performances. Who else will be as understanding or, if necessary, forgiving as us.

Wow...talk about coincidences (spelling?) with Bernadette being involved with performers who had also recently lost loved ones.

As I think about it now, hasn't Bernadette performed even with the loss of other loved ones. Her father died during the run of Annie Get Your Gun, didn't he? She still performed then. Also, I'm thinking of her manager Tom too. She said that he was one of the most influential people in her life, but I believe she still performed after his death. Performing is probably how she deals with the mourning of loved ones..I'm sure the music is very therapeutic as well as feeling even more connected to the songs during this time.

I for one know that if she sings No One is Alone on the 15th...I will be bawling.

Or even a trouper.

Trouper/Trooper--in a weird way, they both apply.

After watching the video in the other post I think it's interesting how she says that NO ONE IS ALONE, MOVE ON, etc are all really healing songs--especially how NO ONE IS ALONE is so comforting. This is probably what she needs.
