So.. here I am again.
I am not good at technical reviews so I will talk only of what I've seen and felt. Before Scorpions came on the stage another band sang a lot of well known songs to get the people into the mood. Even if the day was sunny, after the sun went down it got really cold. I had 3 blouses on me and I was still cold.
I was at the place of the concert from 4 so I stayed in the first row. Near me there was a boy that also came from another town and that had a banner. It was the flag of Romania and with "Happy birthday Matthias" written on it. It was a long waiting from 4 to 8:30 but it was worth every minute.
When Scorpions came on stage, everybody was shouting their name. The first song was, of course, Hour 1.
After that everything went crazy (in a good way, of course). People were dancing and singing and raising their hands and yelling. It was an amazing atmosphere ! I remember that at a point I climbed on the fence to look back and all I could see were lots and lots of people feeling good. After 3 songs, all the press was asked to leave. I remember that at Sibiu I had some problems with the people that stood in front of me just because they were from the press or they had friends between the organizers. This time there was nobody in front so I could take some very good pictures ! I've put them on my blog (here: http://dennda.ro/2008/10/scorpions-crai ... brie-2008/
- I hope I am allowed to put here a link to the pictures).
Quite early Kalus started to throw drumsticks to the public. I couldn't catch one but I caught a guitar pick signed by Pavel !
I have another one signed by Rudolf from Sibiu. At the end of the show there were persons that had 3 or more drumsticks which I consider it was rude...
The concert was awesome, just like I expected to be ! I think it was better from the one from Sibiu ! Of course, I don't think there were so many people as at Sibiu, because the space was smaller. But I loved it !!! At one time during the concert I got "eye connection" with Klaus and I was like.. wow !
I arrived back home this morning at 5:30 am, with no voice, pain in my legs, cold in my bones but a big (or maybe should I say huge) smile on my face and in my soul !
