It all started on July 25th, 2002 in the early morning around 4:00 a.m. that the Die Hard Fans started lining up for the Dolly Concert for 8:00 p.m. that night. As the morning light came so did more fans to get in line. By 12:00 noon about 25 where in line and by 3:30 p.m. 110 people where in line. As the fans line the side walk at the Earthlink Live Building Front. Then the magic started happening someone said here comes Dolly's Bus and the fans went over to the rails that had been put up to hold them back.. When Dolly came off the bus the fans started waving and showing how much that they Loved to see her again. Dolly waved at people across the street from building and corner's of the side walk and then came near the fan side. People in cars going by blowing their horns as Dolly stepped off the bus. Dolly goes inside to do a sound check and then back to the bus she came.. The fans went back to their resting place in line. They where 10 Die Heart Fans that had purchase $12.00 bunches of Flowers for Dolly and they where told that no flowers where to be brought inside at show time. So off to the Tour Bus they went and Don Warren Came out and let the fans put the flowers in the bottom side of the bus for Dolly to get after the show.. ("Thanks Don"). The fans started going in the doors at 6:30 p.m. and waiting for the main doors to open at 7:00 p.m. to get a good spot on the standing floor to see Dolly Parton in concert. The building had been filled and the show was getting ready to start.. The band came out and started playing and the crowd started clapping with the music.. The Orange Blossom Special started and out came Dolly for the show. That's when the fun begin.. The people where so Happy to see Dolly Parton. They started clapping, and singing along with Dolly and having a Great time. Dolly was joking and have a good time with the crowd all through the concert. Some where saying to Dolly that they Loved her and Dolly would say I Love You Too. The Horny fans (as Dolly calls them), where there with their Halos & Horns and Surprised Dolly with some Hog Faces to go along with Dolly Singing" Who Let the Hogs Out." Dolly started to joke with the fans and have some fun. Dolly is doing 28 song total and didn't do Color Me American, but did do I will always love you in the Bluegrass style.. As Dolly was walking off stage the crowd was still clapping and wanting Dolly to sing more for them.. The band left off stage and the crowd still wanting more. All together people at the concert really did enjoy the performs that Dolly gave them. As Dolly's Bus was leaving to go back to Nashville the Fans lined the streets to say Good Bye Dolly. The song list was the same in New York City's concert.
