Time for a review then:
I'll keep my looong ass intro to myself, and just say I got there late: 12:45
even though it's not a comfy situation I would have liked to hang out with everyone
but it was still really quiet out there, I think I was 3 in the que, and I didn;t even have to run to make it to the barrier, which as we all know didn;t even matter anyway cause we were sweeped out.
it had it's advantages cause we got to eat some solid food, and use the bathroom. we started queuing again around 5, and unfortunatly ended up blocking the way for the true elbow fans (sorry
I would have loved to see them as well, but now all we could do was listen.
it got pretty hot out there, and at some times pretty uncomfortable, I'll leave out the mother/child story as well, except to say her son was 11 (anna) and she made things more uncomfortable because she cut the line..
finally we got to go in and made a run for it, I couldn't find anna, and I spotted gioia I just seized my chance and grabbed a spot at the barrier, since things we're filling up fast. it took me a while to find out where she and natascha were standing but I finally found them on a spot on the barrier too. I have to admit I was a little bummed I couldn't be with them at first, but I really enjoyed hanging out with Gioia and Marianne, and Baukje, she was on my right, and unfortunatly she wasn't feeling well and had to leave her spot before it all started
apperently they we're 20 minutes late, but I didn't even notice, time flew by really fast
then Jay-z started, we were bouncing up and down to the beat, making daimonds with our hands (wembley memories) I tried to find anna and natascha, probably the only hand up in there air there:
I'll keep it brief as my memory is already a blur (I'm getting to old for this shit)
I was really looking forward to the new stuff! hurts like heaven is great! and the energy on stage was great!
we got trouble! I
trouble! need I say more?
I loved the picked guitar playing! I can't think of another concert where that ever happend? anyone?
viva la vida ruled, I'd say from where I was standing the crowd went crazy, and IMO they we're all night, They easily started a phone wave, and everytime we'd start oo-ing, they would join in loud!
PLEASE pleas pleaassse let charlie brown be the next single!
life is for living OMG unfortunatly I was trying to keep the setlist a suprise for myself, but that one slipped through as had to get my hands on the new tracks, but daaammmmnnnn it's so great they picked up one of the underdogs
fix you might be my altime favorite live, the sing along oh my god! I;m so glad there's a good recording of that!
and the song I was most looking forward to I can't believe I'm about to admit it:
every teardrop is a waterfall
it's been stuck in my head for days, it took a little getting used to, but I realised live it must be so great, and it is!
I shook my bootayyyy hahaha
