I'm back from my Belgian trip.
I'm completely dead, my shoulders and my neck are so painfull and my round trip of 1600k was tiring.
1st - Friday
I started my day to work 2h20 in Geneva and then left (after bought some chocolate for Alex, Ingo and Achim; swiss chocolate of course
So I left Geneva at 11 o'clock and arrived to my hotel in France (30km from Mons) at 17h30. I decided to continue my way and try to see Alex, Ingo and Achim. I arrived to the Mons expo around 18h
I saw the Scoprs truck but no sound, everything was very quiet.
I asked to some people outside if the scorps crew was here. One guy drive me inside but waiting for the according of this boss.
So I wait quietly under the stage, close of the Matthias' guitars but don't took pix
Suddenly I saw Alex, go speak with him, gave him his chocolate. He told me that Ingo and Achim just left the place fr the hotel
The time I walked to one side, they left by the other side. It's an habit with Ingo lol
I drove a bit inside the city and return to my hotel.
2nd - Saturday
I arrived at the place at 8h20, I was the 1st, my friend Cécile arrived some minutes later with her cousin. We wait in the cold, and people started to arived slowly.
We took place on the first row right in the middle because there was loud peaker everywhere along the barrier except in the middle. We didn't moved of all the day. We met Ron and Phillip and later Kristof and Joshua arrived. People moved between the 2 stages until 20 o'clock, after more and more people stayed, pushed and tried to take us place on the 1st row grrrr
(<-- it was what I looked like)
The day was long.
The light off andthe screen on, the drum up, lot of smoke YEAH it start !
what could add more than Ron ? nothing, he described perfectly the show. I just focus on the bad piont of the show.
I'm agree for Animal magnetism, it's a great song but not its place here, people were complety off, even me.
The smoke ....... tooooooooooooooooo much !
The light .............tooooooooooooooooo strong !
Really, sometimes we can't see the face of the person in front of us, we recognized him just by the shape.
It's a pity!
I can tell you if I felt the guys in good mood, most of time I didn't saw them, especial Pawel. He came in the middle only when the others were there.
Good point, of course there is good points ! the sound was good.
So, at the end of the show I saw Achim and gave him his chocolate, talk a bit about the show. I told him for the smoke and he told that he will tell it to the band.....
For Ingo, like always, he disappeared. So after 4 tentavive (Strasbourg 08--> Matt eaten the choco, St Petersburg 09--> choco crushed on the ground because of the security, Colmar 09-->choco melded by the heat) it's finally Alex who gave him it.
My pix will arrive later in the week
