Thank you for this link, I missed that one!

And we have a new video as well, "Let me entertain you" from when he first was back on stage - we all screamed so loudly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72UfqoZV ... e=youtu.be

Here comes my detailed report for all of you at home that could not be there, and as a memory for those that saw it. Enjoy!

The show opened with Princess Apricot singing “What a feeling”. After she left John appeared first on stage flying in from above with fireworks, waving to the audience and singing "Let me entertain you". Then he did a bit of speech that he got bucked on stage which was a first even for him and that he made the news three days in a row but that he felt much better now. After that he admitted that he was "in love with a lassie" and when some people laughed he told them to suspend their belief at least for one evening *g*
i've finally had time to read your lengthy report :thumbsup:

Thanks for the long report, it is very much appreciated :D so very glad you got to meet JB outside too!! 8) :D

Thank you, and you're welcome! Have you ever seen a JB panto before?

Yesterday I also got tweeted back by Greg after thanking him again on Twitter.

And we have a new video - if she keeps going like this we might get the whole show together!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7FlEYyE ... e=youtu.be

Can someone tell me what he says after he forgets his name and then says "Jack... oychoo"? That's one of the jokes I never understood. Thanks!

And on a more seroius note, I'd like your opinions, girls. As I really don't know anymore what to think about my picture with him. Yes, I confess, I'm one of those selfish people that did a pic on Saturday evening with him. We had met him on Thursday afternoon, and I got pictures for my friends then, but before I could make up my mind it was too late and he left.

I was not too sad, since I already have official convention pictures. So when we went there on Saturday, I really did not expect anything to happen, especially since there was a quite big crowd. I Just wanted to see him and say bye-bye while he leaves. And nobody would have been upset if he had done just that. But then he did indeed stop and sign and make pictures for/with everyone. I took the opportunity to tell him how relieved I was that he was okay after all, but now everyone keeps telling us we should have left him alone and I feel really bad about it :( To think he was in pain all the time with us (he DID limp when coming down the stairs from the stage door) and just felt forced to do it (as he said on Thursday, although joking: "If I don't then people complain on Twitter") so that is all I can think right now while looking at my picture instead of just enjoying it. But really, I mean, he should know himself best what is best for him and if he can take it or not? What do you think? Please help me to get through this mess in my head!

I really don't think you should feel bad about it - he's a grown-up chap, & can make his own decisions about whether he feels up to things - he didn't stay on the Sunday when he DIDN'T have time, & could have made his excuses & left on the Saturday. I don't think anyone forces him to do anything except himself! It's worth remembering that he's got SO many years experience performing onstage before the good Doctor came along, & most 'live' actors get injured at some time - I'm sure he's been through onstage injury more than once before, & knows how far he can push himself. Just enjoy your shot & your moment. If he WAS uncomfortable at the time, the friendliness of fans would have cheered him up. :)

The joke is a Scottish insult which I'm not familiar with - " you tube!", I think it is - if you replace it with the word 'idiot', e.g., & it's a very traditional panto joke - Hero gets so nervous with the girl he loves that he forgets his own name when she asks it, & turns to his friend (brother, in this case) & asks "What IS my name?" to be told "It's JACK, you idiot!!" then Hero turns back to the girl & repeats "It's Jack, you idiot..."

I agree with rheidol about you getting a signature from John on Saturday. He's a grown man and should know his own limitations. His comment about twitter makes me realize he's very aware how the 'spoiled fans' begin to react if they don't get what they feel they're entitled to. John loves his fans and I think it makes him feel good being able to sign and get pics taken. However, I truly believe if John were in so much pain he didn't want to stand outside for any length of time he would not have come out after the show. So stop feeling guilty and just enjoy the picture.

While I've not watched that video..thanks for explanation for that one part. I'll know it when I hear it then. LOL

Thank you Rheidol and Aresnz, for reassuring me! That's exactly the way I see it too. Most of the fans stood back and took pictures only anyway, he was not rushed by a mad group of people or anything. I was surprised how quiet it was, no mad squeeing or anything. You could have almost missed him - suddenly he was ther among the fans.

I heard when he said to someone "Yesterday I thought I was paralized" and mentioned Christopher Reeve and that really did churn my belly a bit. Frightening times for all of us, him included!

Yeah, that YT channel is a bit weird, is that new that they show all videos the owner has just liked, instead of doing theirselve? I also scrolled for ages. I then decided to follow her on Twitter to not miss anything.

Here are all four videos so far together in one post:

I thought I rather make a new post with the new videos so nobody misses them:

Edit: and a new one: Charlie, kissing after horse kiss & Fleshcreep: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV8qaK2GuxQ

Edit: and speech and Edge of Glory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9DoxW7YtS0

Edit: Jimmy Gangnam style: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saFbSC9UAZA

Also, I finally found the song they sing when the beanstalk grows! It's from "Sister Act" the musical and called "Spread the love around". Well, they spread the beans around instead:
