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 🙂
