Sorry, it will be the long review... Wednesday, 5th November
Adrian came to Vilnius approximately at 3.30pm, we went back to the flat and my friend said that Scorpions are going to be on air in M-1 Plus radio at 5.30. They were a bit late so the interview started at 6.00pm. I will upload the video, you will hear everything
Rudolf was playing guitar live, that was amazing!! I sent an email with the question to the radio but when I heard that someone called them I thought OMG I have to call them!!! I was calling about 20 times but the line was busy and for the 21th one DJ said that there are some people who are hanging on the phone and want to ask something and the I heard: "Sveiki! (Hi!) in my phone! I had to answer in lithuanian because all the people ask in lithuanian and then DJs translate but i was totally in trance and started to shout "Hey!!" to the guys!!
they started to laugh immediatelly
I said we had a banner in Tallinn and were standing in the 1st row and Klaus said: "Uh yeah, I remember!", then I asked if there as very different experience to play rock show in Tallinn and with orchestra in Riga? Then he answered (but I didnt hear what coz I couldnt believe that it's happening!!
I just remember that he said there was 60people in orchestra. Then DJ said I won 2tickets to the show!!! And asked in Lithuanian if I can believe it's happened and I said in English: "No!!" Guys started to laugh again!!
(Adrian is laughing now that I'm going to write very long...)
Then we went to guys hotel to meet Russian fans. They were already waiting and talking to Tania. We joined them and continued talking. Guys arrived to the hotel in half an hour. Klaus came to us, said "hello" to everyone and when he turned to me, he said: "Oh, you must be Ruta!!!!" i was totally shocked how he could remember me!!
Then they went to have an interview in the hotel. It lasted ~0.5 hour, then Matthias was going outside and when he saw us, he turned back and came to us to say "hello". I told him I was in the show in Tallin and he said: "Oh, yes, I remember, you wrote me an email!" He was very kind, he said they are going to have dinner and will come back in couple of hours so we could wait them but i couldnt coz i had to study business english!!
so Matthias said: "Ok, study hard!!!"
Then Klaus was going outside and when he saw us, came to talk. We were talking ~30minutes, he's the kindest, warmest and nicest person I've ever met!!! We took some pictures, when i took the 1st one, Klaus was with scarf but then took it off and said: "Come back Ruta for the new picture!!"
I said "hello" to him from Roberta and he asked to say "hello" back.
Then he started to talk how is nice when the music is uniting people and that it's great that we, fans from the forum are communicating!!
Amazing!!! Anna (Russian FOSer) asked if he had ever tried to sing opera. Klaus said: “I respect opera singers, it’s very hard to learn to sing in such way but if someone would ask me to sing opera, I would say “take those orchestras from me, I’m simple rock singer!!”
Then he said he has to go and we will meet the next day!! Thursday, 6th November
I had to study at night so thanks to Adry and Zivile for the banner!! I had to make a presentation and they were doing it!!
We met Russian fans at 5pm and went to arena. Show began at 20pm and doors were opened at 6.30pm.
We went to the doors that are closest to the 1st row but security guy said that it won't be opened coz the stage is too large. So we went to another doors. I was so excited to get to the 1st row. Adrian now thinks that I'm really crazy!!!
Doors opened and here we are in the 1st row!!!!
There already was Pablo, Paulina and other Polish fans. It was so great to see you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We talked to Alex a bit, when he saw Adrian, he said: "What are you doing here??? You are crazy!!!"
Guys were a bit late and the show started few mins after 8pm. When the orchestra started to play Hurricane2000 i thought OMG, my dream starts to come true!!! Matthias and Klaus recognized us immediately!!!! The setlist was great, the quality of sound was amazing and Klaus's voice.... just perfect!!!!!!!!!! When Klaus started to throw sticks... you remember I said that in Tallinn I cought a stick from the 3rd time and now.... i cought 3 at once!!!!!!!!!!!
I gave one to Adry and my friend Juste. It was the first time when I heard Klaus communicating with the crowd so much! During one song there was Lithuanian flag on the huge screen. Crowd started to scream like crazy!!!
It was 6th time for them in Vilnius but only this time they stayed here for 3days!!! Klaus said he loved the city, especially oldtown and he sees how much the town has changed after the first visit. And said: "No one like you!!!" I thought I will jump over the fence when I heard this song!!! Ah, about the banner....
Matthias was looking at me so many times and once I showed him BGRW and he nooded his head
then Klaus came, looked at the banner and showed: "Oh yeah, that one!!" And when Wind of Change started he came to me and asked to give a banner!! He took it to the stage, put on his shoulders, went to Matthias, said something and then they both looked at me and started to smile!!!
That was amazing!!
Before leaving the stage Matthias started to throw his plecs. And firstly came to me!!
so... 1st time..another girl cought it...then 2nd....3rd...4th...
and 5th... it dropped not very far from me. So i asked for security guy to give it to me. While he was going to give it to me, Matthy squated down and waited and when I got it, he said: "ah, great!"
They played hurricane2000 at the end, so 1song repeated. Then they went out from the stage but the crowd didn't want to let them away, so they came back and played Big City Nights again!!! so 2songs repeated!!! it was something strange to me!! And as we talked to Pawel later, he said that they hadnt to play it, it wasnt in the setlist but the crowd was so great that they had to come back!!! Later after the show they said they loved the crowd and I know why - everybody knew the words, I was totally in trance!!! During conversation with Klaus, he talked a lot about Vilnius, they loved it!!! And when he asked from where I am and I said that from Vilnius, he said: "Oh sorry, I didn't know"
They loved the orchestra as well!!! As Pawel said classic and rock music is very different but orchestra was rocking together with them!!!!!
Ah, Pawel has to dedicate I'm leaving You for me today in the show in Minsk, so GO PAWELITO!!! Friday, 7th November
I forgot to give presents to Klaus and Matthias at the show's evening so we went to hotel in the morning. They left at 11am. I gave them Lithuanian sweets called Ruta, Matthy said: "Oh it's like you!!"
Klaus kissed my cheeks 4times
Guys, that was amazing!!! I won't forget all these days for all my life!!! I still can't believe it happened!!!!
I love those guys!!!
I am going to upload pictures and videos a bit later
P.S. When we met James this morning and I asked how was he, he said: "Im fine but your voice is not very good! I hope you will recover it!"
