bring M&M's to concert?

Postby Klary » Sun Apr 24, 2005 8:57 am

On the MadMission list, there was a mention of "bringing M&M's to the shows again for Patty and the band".
From the mail I did not really understand what it means. Does anyone know about this?

Not sure if they have them in The Netherlands but M&Ms are a chocolate candy sold in the U.S. The song Mad Mission also has the initials M and M. For years, some of Patty's fans who were/are members of the Mad Mission discussion board (and fans of that song) have brought giant bags of the M&M candies to Patty's shows and left them at the foot of the stage. At a couple of shows, Patty has mentioned that the M&Ms make her very popular with the crew when she distributes them after a concert. At one of the singer-songwriter tour concerts (with Patty, Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams and Mary Chapin Carpenter), Shawn Colvin was heard to jokingly complain that no one had left any M&Ms last night.

She better grab those M & M's fast at the Nashville show if people bring sweet, delicious, candy-coated offerings. I'll be sitting in the first row, and if I'm hungry, I'm not afraid to use my ninja skills to stealthily swipe a bag with a slight distraction of a puff of smoke.

I don't know about M&M's for Patty, but if anyone would like to bring some to the King of Prussia show, I will be more than "willing to receive" them.
