Uhmm, I've been trying to avoid this topic for a few days cause I have some work and I new that when coming here I'll just have to write my review
So here we go!
As you know I had some troubles with my classes but finally after taking the exam I left straight to the airport. I arrived quite late to Brussels but I just couldn't miss the FOS meeting so I went to Delirium with my bag [in fact I had to, cause I forgot to write down the adress of my hotel so...there were the only people who I could follow
]. The entrance to Delirium was well hidden and it's not that famous as Ruta told, I had to ask about 8 people and nobody knew about it. So I activated my Sherlock's sense and finally found it. It's a pity that some of you already left before I came so I couldn't meet everyone there, but I'm glad I saw some new faces
Thanks for this! Then, me, Adriano and Gianluca left to get to our hotel. It took some time and it seemed that we didn't take the most STRAIGHT way
but Adrian's poker face was very professional
On the next day I was supposed to have breakfast with the rest but my body seemed to have different plans so I got up too late. Than we left with other Italian fans and we met Marina and her friend. It was nice to meet you Marina, in fact I've heard a lot about you
We were determined to find the arena not-trusting any means of public transport so it took some time. When we arrived there were already some people waiting at the gates and we chose the one where Philip and Kristof with his family were standing. It was a long time there so Italiand didn't let us freeze forcing to sing all together with them
I believe Salvatore's talent got some new fans
In the meantime as there were no toilets around I visited some bushes which weren't in a really out-of-the-way place and then politely waited with the others. It happens that thanks to David I had a chance to go backstage so after the hunt from one bodygouard to the second I managed to get inside.
I was quite cinvinced I lost my first row but people out there didn't really try to fight with me or something, I was trying to find Ruta cause she told she was keeping a place for me. Sooo...finally I found her and Marina standing together and though there was no more too much space I knew the during the show people are always moving a bit so..before the show began I holded the barrier
I don't know how they do it but I always feel so hipnotized during the show. It doesn't matter we all know the setlist and know what they will do on the stage. This time we had surprise cause the played [sic!] In trance and I was so, so happy about it
I've heard it live before but I absolutely didn't mind it
I won't write too much about the show except the fact I had the feeling they really tried to do their best. Even Klaus who was sick at that time was very professional and of course I have to mention Pawel who I really admire cause he didn't show at all that there was something wrong. Aah, i have to say that the audience was really great, people answered to Klaus, they were singing all together and seemed to have a really good time. Perfect.
After the show we left with Ruta's friend offered us [the girls, Ruta, Curry, Marina and me] a lift to the place where might have been the Scorpions' hotel and but inside they told us that Rudolf and Matthias have already left and Klaus is too tired to come BUT when we were going to leave we just faced Klaus who as always was very patient and nice. The guy next to him had a murderer's face when we wanted to take a photo but Klaus said it's no problem
Then we left cause Adrain supposed we can come back in the morning and try our luck.
So, we did so and arrived to the hotel at about 10am. We didn't want to get inside with the baggage so we camped outside pretending we don't see unfriendly faces of the stuff
Everything was closed at that time so we were freezing and waiting to get anything hot to eat/drink [why these shows are always linked with dieting?:P]. Then David came and we were waiting there together. Finally when we lost any hope we decided to take a photo and leave so we asked one guy who was standing there to take a pic of us. From word to word, it appeared he was the Scorpions driver and he was waiting for Pawel
I don't know if I'm writing his name correctly but phoneticaly he's Stephan. He gave us some beer as he didn't have too much use of it as a driver and we were still standing and chatting. Adrian and Curry had to leave and than came some French fans. At around 1pm Pawel came, took some photos and left to the airport. That's all
Now: going to the show is one thing but another huge part of it is meeting all these people and I'm really glad I made it and I came!
Ruta [for all your help and assistance
next time we'll spend more time together!],

], Wilhelm, Vasi, Ruta's friends and...have I forgot anybody? I hope not.
Khem, khem, hopefully SEE YOU IN MUNICH!
