In answer to your question she did not mention Micheal. When introducing Cubby and talking about him being a good husband, she changed the line "He's not my husband" to "his wife told me so".

Also she came down the side ramp during "There's Nothing Like a Dame" and sang to a gentleman in the audience much to the glee of the rest of the audience.

At one point she brought the microphone stand to the front and said, "Oh, I'm not supposed to do this now" and took it back. She said it so cute. You could tell this audience just loved her as this sent them into gales of laughter.

My sister and I couldn't help but mention to each other her flawless skin and perfect figure in that dress!

I have so many dvds of her in concert and I have to repeat that this performance was one of her best! We left the concert hall mesmerized and just couldn't stop thinking or talking about her.

I'm only writing anonymously because I forgot my username and password. The concert was amazing. She was incredible! I'm sure the people next to us were tired of my jumping up and yippeeing, but I've loved her forever and it was my first time to see her live. She feeds off the crowd! She did take a deep breath before the first line in No One Is Alone and I held my breath for her...she didn't cry, but a couple of times my heart did break for her.

The coolest story I have from the concert is from after. We went to the stage door to wait and I'd taken a copy of a story we did in the newspaper here about when I was very sick and I had played Being Alive for my recover graduation and I wrote her a note of thanks for making me smile when I needed to the most. Well, there were many people out there and I'd said a prayer or two and this man walks out of the stage door straight over to my friend and I and gave us to passes to the VIP room. I was floored. I thanked him and we walked into the reception where we got to mingle with her for awhile and I stood in the receiving line and got to speak with her. I told her the story and gave her the paper with the note. She asked my name and gave me a huge hug and said "I'm really glad you're better." She signed my pass and took her picture with me and spoke to my friend who told her we used to sing Greens in college and wanted us to show her.

I looked straight at Bernadette and said No I'm not gonna do it, but my bud did and it was fabulous and Bernadette laughed. I sat down with some other people and watched her talk to her fans and was in awe.

She was so gracious and beautiful and kind!

I was in heaven!

Thanks so much for sharing your lovely story, anonymous, how great that time must have been for you.

Just as great, it says worlds about Bernadette's state of mind, to "meet-and-greet" her fans.

I'm glad I could share. I'll remember that night always. In fact I'm still a little in shock that it happened at all.

Funny sidebar to the story, my friend who was behind me forgot to get her stuff signed b/c she was talking with her and went back over to do that and I say BP laugh. I said what did she say to her and she told me, I said in 2002 I met you after Annie Get Your Gun in NY and I when we were taking a picture I got my sharpie stuck in your hair...I was APPALLED. Bernadette laughed.

Have I said how much I love retrospect I thought even though what we went through was completely different and reading a story about healing could also bless her in some way.

Also, there was this little girl who was about 4 or 5 and she had on like a white easter dress, she was so excited to meet Bernadette from little orphan Annie and when she got up there BP said you look so pretty and bent down to her level and took a photo. It was so sweet. Okay, I'll shut up now, I could talk forever!
