The Josh Groban In the Round Tour will give fans a one-of-a-kind concert experience. Placed in the middle of the floor, this 360 stage will allow Groban to interact with fans from all sides of the venue and hear him sing classic songs that span his illustrious 12 year career. The In the Round tour builds on the concept of Groban’s 2011 Straight To You world tour, bringing the intimate feel of a theater experience to an arena setting.

Says Groban, “It has been a vision of mine to do a tour in the round for a while now, it was just a matter of when was the right time. I have always had moments during the show where I walked through the crowd and interacted with the fans. I felt that now was the time to bring it all together.  I can’t wait to bring music from throughout my career, great fun and new experiences to my fans.”

Groban will be joined by an ensemble of world-class musicians – featuring Andre Manga on bass, Ruslan Sirota on keys, Pete Korpela on percussion, music director Tariqh Akoni on guitar , Dave DiCenso on drums, Christian Habel on violin and Daniel Rosenboom on trumpet. In addition, a local orchestra and choir will be added in each city.

 

Groban recently completed a wildly successful tour in Australia and New Zealand where he drew rave reviews.

One of the greatest voices in contemporary music”

Titanic The Experience Ghost Tour

Titanic The Experience
7324 International Drive * Orlando Florida 32819

When Shelley and I got invited to go back to Titanic the Experience and take part in one of their new Ghost tours we JUMPED at the chance. We had such an amazing time on the first tour that we knew we wanted to go back for another experience and we of course had to drag Shalon with us.

Titanic the Experience
Titanic The Experience

The Ghost Tour is different from the Experience Tour because while you go through the rooms and learn the history of the artifacts, the guides Joe Zimmer and Jac LeDoux delve a bit more into the folk lore of the pieces. The word of mouth rumors about premonitions and deaths that happened prior and things of that nature. They also talked about experiences that the guides themselves have had while working there. Before Titanic got their remodel they were housed over on the other side of International Drive in an area called The Mercado which has since been tore down. The Mercado was a very old set of buildings that was turned into shopping and dining and entertainment area. It has since been torn down but the guides all have memories and experiences to share.

Titanic The Experience
In this room the chain on the wall definitely was moving as we were told about the odd incidents that have happened in Titanic The Experience.

So much of the Ghost Tour is a personal experience.You still get the boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger but this time the stories they tell about the people have a much more superstitious feel to them then the regular tour.  It is all about how you feel when you look at the artifacts and if you feel as though there is a presence around you. We were told about a young girl named Katie who was one of the resident spirits in the exhibit. She likes to move artifacts and play around with the Tour Guides. And they also like to play with her. She has a doll that has been found all over the tour rooms and exhibit. She has been known to move mirrors and small items as such. Some of the guides will not play with her but some of them have just as much fun as they can with it. Hiding her doll in tall or obscure places, taunting her with toys and food and even asking her to move things for them to see if she will do it. It is a well known fact that she will play along with certain tour guides but not all of them.

Titanic The Experience
The recreation of the boiler room of the Titanic was super creepy, especially the speaking tube!

While we were on our tour, we were lucky enough to have some Paranormal Experts with us experiencing the exhibit. One of them had a meter of sorts that read magnetic activity and when we were in certain rooms it would be going crazy and all the lights would be blowing up. One of the guides took a group of us back to the telegraph room and that is where they decided to try and talk to the spirits. Asking yes or no questions to the spirits green on the meter meaning yes and red on the meter meaning no. While I totally am a believer in spirits, I totally understand people who aren’t. Seeing the meter respond and feeling the chill in the air in spots and seeing artifacts that were enclosed in cases or units move, totally blew my mind. This isn’t magic, this isn’t a 3 cent show. This is the type of thing that really gets you to thinking and believing.

Titanic The Experience
Did you make it?

Titanic was a real event. With real people and real emotions. Seeing and hearing the stories and watching how the tour guides react totally make this a one of a kind experience. Seeing the other people on the tour react is another aspect of this tour.
