This was inspired by Rgirl's post of seeing Oksana Bauil skate live at Madison Square Garden.
What are some of your favorite memories/impressions of seeing skaters live?
Have you changed your opinion of a skater after seeing them live?
I have never seen elite skaters live, and there are so many skaters I wished I had the opprotunity to see live, Gordeeva and Grinkov, Rodnina & Zaitsev, Mishkutienok & Dmitriev, Gritchuk & Platov, Midori Ito, John Curry, and so many more...
ETA: of course there are many current skaters I would like to see to, but these skaters are no longer skating or no longer with us. So I have a special regret about never seeing those skaters skate live and in their prime.
The only ones still skating(IIRC) are Ekaterina Gordeeva and Artur Dmitriev.
