Went to a TNB show last night at Blake’s On Telegraph and had a blast! I’ve never seen Thomas Ian Nicholas perform music before. I have to say, he had a spectacular voice!! His style is very “Springsteen,” as one of my friends had put it. We were able to meet him and it’s so nice to see how down-to-earth he is.
He sang about 6 or 7 songs, I think. He did a couple of cover songs, Muse’s “Uprising” and Tom Petty’s “Free Falling.” He also satisfied a request my friend made to play New Kids On The Block. That was a bit of a surprise to me!! He and a drummer from another band played a little bit of “The Right Stuff.” He was such a good sport, so cute. I’d love to see him perform again, or even watch one of his movies. I guess I should rent something he’s been in but I’m not sure I can handle an American Pie marathon. He did mention they’re thinking of doing another one. I’d watch that but I’d love to watch an independent film as well.
Anyway, took a photo with him, which I will upload later. I wish all celebrities were as laid back and humble as he was. I have yet to meet any who were snobs to me. I guess you just have to feel out their vibes before approaching them. Thanks for being so cool, Thomas. Looking forward to seeing you again.
