Hehe, thanks! It's going to be hard on Saturday night. I'm going to the football which is on at the stadium directly next to Acer Area. Knowing I'm so close and yet so far will be hard.

Thank you so much!!
I had goosebumps while watching your video!
You're welcome! I still watch it several times a day, and I still can't function properly because I keep thinking about that fantastic concert!

On a side note, can anyone mention if they ran into any members of the band in Sydney Friday night? I assumed they might have checked out a pub or two :)

No he won't! It's our Jonny, Min! He is so sweet. And I don't think you will pass out. You will have a racing heart and shaking hands though! Just have someone with you for support, to catch you if you fall. Or fall on Jonny if you must! :p :sneaky:

I think Zeya's review of this show (11th March) says it all :) Only thing I can add was that it was my daughters 8th brithday present and she was well looked after by the roadies scoring some sweet memorablia which she later had signed by half the band (got the other half to sign tonight). She had an amazing time, as she did at the Berlin(o2) show last September. Tonight was a totally different kettle of fish, totally unexpected to see the show, let alone meet the band, I was dreading they would drive through without stopping after our near 5 hour wait. Has made my musical year (a definite gig highlight, and I have been to quite few). I'll post more on that in the 14th thread tomorrow sometime. Cheers btw where in Germany are you?

hey thef1re, lots of luck, lots of patience and waiting in the right place (look for the truck entrance). Then you just leave it up to the band to if they want to stop and greet. Chris stopped most nights of the Australia tour from what I hear. We only stayed back once (1st Sydney concert) but I heard he stopped the following night after 3am but we were also lucky to meet the band on their way into the stadium also.

Hi :D

Do you happen to be the nice lady with the sweet daughter that night? If you remember I'm the girl from Singapore :nice:

I didn't get to meet him anyway :sad:

Flew all the way from Singapore to Sydney, attended the 4 shows (waited in line for 12 hours of 2 of them), stood in the cold every night at the loading dock...

Hi But a Dream, yes I remember you, the lady is my wife and the little girl my daughter. I've been reading your posts and am sorry that you have missed Johnny so far. Keep my fingers crossed for you for Singapore. Hope you had great time following them through Sydney.
