I'm back from my "scorps' week".
What about Carcassonne, it was hot, very hot, very very hot.....! waiting all the day under a full sun
So I arrive the Monday afternoon, I tried to see the entrance of the theatre in the jungle of tourrist
.In the end of the afternoon I drove to the train station to pick up my friends, Ludo had 4hour late with his train, he was in good mood when he arrived
We decide to go eat somewhere in the "Cité", on the way, suddendly someone running and screaming under me. It was Christine, with Emelie and Andrea.
We when to the restaurant all together, it was a nice evening. We met us friends of Karelia as well (the support band).
Ludo arrived at the theater' s gate around 8h30, me one hour later. There was only one other person, so go to the Cité, take some pix with the morning sun. I see Achim taking pix as well
Later I was with Ludo, Achim taked a pic of us in front of the gate
, I asked him for a pic with him.
I get my pic with Achim
( ok, now stay Alex, Ingo, Michael and Markus)
We were lucky to learn by some tourrist that the band were in the hotel just on the other side of the church, so 75m far. Many thanks to this tourrist !!!!!
When we arrived with Ludo, 20 second after Christine, she told us that they saw Rudolf, James and Athena.
We stayed here around 2 hours and saw only James and Athena and their son who go to play the tourrist, we don't disturbed them. Later in the afternoon, we tried to found some fresh and shaded area, we saw Klaus in front of the hotel but don't distrub him, he seemsed very very tired.
After many hours under the sun, we finally arrived into the theater, wow beatiful area !!
we take the 1st row in front of Matt, like everytime
. Difficult to be colser, closer will be on the stage. but sit ouch
, how to do ? we can't stay sit for scorps (and Karelia too) Did the people don't shout if we stand up ?
Karelia started, they don't like play in front of a sitting crow
, they asked to the crow to stand up
, we are only around 20 stand up during Karelia
Most of the crow for scorps
The show was great, like perfect professional, but only James and Matthias were in great form. Rudolf didn't move a lot (but more than in Juan les pins), same for Pawel and Klaus was white. They looked like tired.
I took my banner on Holiday, the 1st part of the song wasn't finish that Klaus came take it and put it on his shoulders
and keep it until the middle of 321
Later Klaus took the french flag of Ludo. I had 1 drum stick (like almost all the 1st row) and 3 pelcs during this show, it's the 1st times it happened to me. I'm particularly happy about the pelc Matthias gave me in the hand, because it's not the classic white/black but the red/gold
and it's the 1st time I have one of Rudolf
I had a lot of smiles and funny moments with Matthias
It was a great night, my 2nd best show after Manchester in 2007 for the "communication" with the band.
After the show we went to their hotel, again, saw Pawel and wish him a good night, we learnt that Amend was in bad mood, so we left for us hotel.
So we haven't pix or signed stuff from Carcassonne, but I'm not desapointed because one of friend was very seek at the last moment and can't come to the show. He is the only one of my friends who never met the band.
I will be very angry for him if I had saw them without him. I hope he will be more lucky for Colmar
I'll try to post some pix this week-end, but before it's the pix from Chania and Singen, so wait a bit please
