July 20th, 1999 was the Nsync/Jordan Knight concert at Six Flags Darien Lake in NY. Danielle (my roommate) and I left to go there at about quarter to 5, and we got there around 5:30. We parked, and got to the line. IT WAS HUGE!! So we found the end of the line and waited for doors to open. Then all these people started screaming (I guess it was because people thought Nsync came out to see the line, I dunno) and lots of people left the line to rush the gates (sort of). So the line disappeared, and we figured, what the hell.
So we mushed into line near the front, and we ended up getting in a lot sooner than many people who had been there all damn day!! So we got inside, and went to the field, where our tickets were for. We weren’t lucky enough to get seats, so we had to settle for the general admission part of the theatre. So we made our way through the crowd (using our mad awesome crowd maneuvering skills learned from Orgy concerts 🙂 lol) and we turned up being about 4 away from the front barrier of the field “seats”. We had a pretty good view of the stage. So then… after waiting a while, there was this chick who came on stage and sang some song. Then this group called PYT (awesome Michael Jackson reference) came on. They were 4-13 year old girls. They sang some song, and left. Then some 4 black guy group came on and sang 2 songs (I think). Then I guess you could say the concert began.
Sugar Hill Gang (the first rap group ever) came on. They did some stuff, played some songs that have recently been sampled by people like Puff Daddy. Then they played Rappers Delight, the only song anyone actually knew. So then after they left the stage they got it ready for JORDAN!!! YAY….They had a big picture of his album cover on the stage, and after awhile this DJ guy (DJ Finesse) came on and started the set. Jordan’s dancers came on and did some stuff and Jordan finally appeared. Oh my god he is sooo gorgeous. He was wearing all black, a suit with a jacket and everything, and sunglasses. He began to sing “A Different Party” and it was soo totally awesome. The dancing was amazing (and you can soo totally tell he is influenced by Michael Jackson). After that song he took his jacket off and was talking to us. He said that his album was for sale at the vendors stands if we wanted to get it “it’s right next to the glow sticks”! AHH he was so adorable!!!!!!!! So after that he talked a bit more about how beautiful we all are (LOL, all the little 12 year olds) and he began “Never Take the Place of Your Man” and I almost died. He is just so amazing. So then, his DJ did something, and Jordan was jammin. Then he took his other shirt off, and so he was wearing this black sleeveless shirt, oh god! LOL…So then he did “Give It To You” after asking us all if he could give it to us (hell yeah baby! right here!)… Everyone sang along to that song, and he did a longer version of it with way more SUPER sexy dancing. Oh god. He is just amazing.
So he only did 3 songs, and that’s ok since it wasn’t his tour, and my god, was it worth it!!!! So then after a break Nsync came on. We watched from way further back than we were for Jordan. We were way high up on the hill and could barely see anything, not like we cared. We watched for a while. They did this thing where they showed a clip from the 60s, and then sang “That Thing You Do”. Then they did the 70s, and in their clip was tons and tons about the Jackson 5, and then they performed the Motown Medley from Jackson 5. It was really good actually!! Then they did a clip from the 80s, and they showed some of MJ’s motown 25 performance of “Billie Jean” and me and Danielle screamed LOL. They did “Celebrate” for that song.. then they did the 90s and went back to their own stuff. Blah LOL.. we left during “God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You” (that is too long of a damn title, that’s worse than Jordan’s “Never Take the Place Of Your Man”). We pigged out in the car, and started home. It was so rad, and Jordan is so god damn gorgeous!!! I can’t wait til he tours himself in the fall. I’m there dude, every damn show!
