Kris (Kristofferson) & Carol (VIP)

VIP

Kris Kristofferson & Carol Rennick

Remembering Ottawa 2007 

People travel miles & miles to see Kris Kristofferson perform live on stage. He communicates like no other artist. He has a way of making each person in the audience feel like he is talking directly to them. I always leave a concert feeling special, somehow.

Carol is a Kris Kristofferson fan – She shares her tale of the time she was treated like someone really special. I assume the following took place at the Ottawa Folk Festival – But haven’t checked this yet. This is her story ..

 

Eleven years ago tonight I met Kris in Ottawa.  My niece had got me a VIP pass to the gig. 
I was literally standing at Kris’ car door when he just got out & shook my hand. 


A photographer for the paper was there snapping pictures. I asked him for copies…& got them.


The VIP armband meant  I was allowed anywhere. I watched the whole concert standing about a foot from the stage… 
What a great memory. 

I found out the next day – The funniest (& perhaps the lucky-est?) thing –  Because of the armband, the concert people thought I worked for Kris – & the Kris team thought I worked for the concert team..

I was allowed to go anywhere. It was perfect. 

 

This year (2018) a friend of mine was at a party that Kris was at & and had him autograph my VIP armband from that gig back in 2007. How cool is that?

 

Ottawa 2007 is my most favorite concert, ever …. & I have been to quite a few 🙂  


Thanks
