In Your Hands: Tinley Park, IL June 23

Sun, Jun 24, 2012 at 8:40 AM

Tinley Park, what a show! We had high expectations for Chicago, and you certainly didn't disappoint! Sometimes we have to nudge the crowd a little, but you all got us dancing before we even walked out onstage. Our question is, when can we come back?!


We were excited about last night, but some people proved to be just as pumped about a Sugarland show in Chicago. Angel Cedillo missed his prom just to make it out! Although you were all not ready for someone else to help entertain, Jennifer still welcomed him graciously and said, "SO what if he missed his prom 5 years ago. He just went back to school and graduated! Good for him."


It wasn't only Angel that skipped out on something big to make it out to the concert. Another fan had her sign stand out in the crowd that read, "I missed my family reunion for this". Jennifer laughed and joked asking, "Are you sad about this?" So a big thanks goes out to those that made the extra effort to make it out, even if you used us as an excuse!


You really were full of surprises, Chicago! We even had a someone ask Jennifer and Kristian to play pin the tail on the donkey by way of a sign they made. Thought we wouldn't?! When Kristian pinned it to a fan's rear, they kept it on the rest of the night! You are a different breed, sugarfans, and we absolutely love it!


One of the greatest moments of every show is when we're able to bring someone from the crowd onstage. Last night we had that opportunity again, but it was in the most surprising way. The "Sing With Sugarland" contest winner called into the radio thinking she was just winning tickets to the show. Low and behold, she ended up hopping onstage with us to sing "Baby Girl"! Would you be nervous? We would be! However, Jenny took the stage like it was hers and sang her heart out. It was incredible!


Another incredible part of the show was all of the signs. It was such a humbling experience to see everyone with their "Little Miss Project" posters decked out in the neon colors of the show. Jennifer scoured the crowd looking for one specifically until she finally called out, "I can't find the one I'm looking for. This is what happens when you get pregnant!" The crowd loved her comment and roared with applause.


Every part of last night was unforgettable, and we couldn't thank you more for such a special time in Chicago! We won't forget you, Tinley Park!

    Just wanted to say I had an amazing time at the show! I saw you for the first time when you came to Chicago last year and it was awesome so I had to go again this year and it was even better! I loved how interactive this year's show was and it was just fun throughout the entire night. To make things even better, I won meet & greet passes just 2 days before the show from you guys and I couldn't even sleep. I have never won any kind of contest at all in my life and to win the opportunity to meet two of my favorite artists was unreal. You guys were so nice and amazing in person just how I imagined you would be. Thanks for putting on such an amazing show and for giving me a chance to meet you guys, you made my summer! I will never forget this show and it was one of the best experiences of my life! Thanks guys!!

    What an amazing show!! You guys never disappoint!!! I have to say, this was my first experience with the whole VIP thing. Going to sound check was SO cool!! By far, this was the best way to go and THE coolest thing I've ever done! Making eye contact with Jennifer and Kristian several times, getting a high five and fist pump from Jennifer...I'm fairly certain I'm still buzzing!! LOL!! What an amazing show!! The Little Miss signs were incredibly touching. I still get teary eyed when I think about it and ready the recap above. The energy that Jennifer and Kristian share on stage is something that is just so amazing.

    Thank you guys for such a wonderful time! COME BACK SOON!!! Hehe!!
    Best of everything to you always!!! Safe travels and much continued success!!

    Some of the folks at the venue weren't the friendliest of folks...but Jess did a great job at controlling the situation, and the guy who was rubbing everyone the wrong way ended up called us the most hardcore fans he had ever seen. Yep, sounds about right.

    No words to describe the magic of this night. Pure bliss. Enough said.

    I had such a great time at this show and I'm so glad I came! Originally I was just going to wait until Cincy, but I had an opportunity to get a pit ticket from some Sugarfriends who had to back out. I drove over 4 hrs. from Indiana to be there. Once we all got out of that crazy pit line, the night was perfect! I was 3rd row in the pit and loved every moment. Still trying to figure out where you all get your energy from! Can't wait to see you again in August! :)
