Very happy for you! =) I saw you on photos with my friend from Minsk =)
Dasha, СПАСИБО!!!! ( интересно, что за друг?
Да, мир тесен
I'm still under the emotions...( u can see it from my post on russian fan site
Such an unforgettable feelings...It was really the best moment in my life!!!!@Gabi
, Yep, I'll try to think positive and to hope that I'll have one more chance to meet them again... cause it's just incredible!!! If u meet them once, it's like a drug - u want to meet and to talk to them again and again
- cause they're so true, so sincere... especially I was charmed by Klaus and James ( he was so cute clutching the plushy bear, he was happy indeed, like a child - this impressed me so much
So girls, I a bit envious of you ( in white, of course
), cause your meeting with them is yet to come
- so enjoy this great time, and if u have an opportuninty - please say hello and warmest wishes to them ( esp Klaus
from St Peters' fan with loaf ( in Russia we call it Karavai), who nearly spilled Russian Kvas on him
- maybe he'll remember me....
). Oh.. how I want to join you on these concerts, I even thought about going to Vilnius - because there's a direct train from St Peters to Vilnius- no problem with transport, but unfortunately I can't leave my family, and I have to many expenses, including pays for my flat credit, so I left this thought very soon...Maybe there really will be another chance...
So, here's my report from the concert itself:
After the unforgettable meeting in the airport, I woke up very early ( well, threr were 2 reasons of it - 1st is that I had to take my daughter to the kindergarten, and another is of course upcoming show
). So I couldn't stay at home - I just had to go anyway, cause I was so anxious... Surprisingly my husband ( who was not their fan at all, expressed a wish to join me and to to to the Ice Palace in advance to be in the 1st rows
. So we arrived at the place by 16:00, and there already were fans, so we joined them - it turned out there already had been made a queue with the numbers on the hands. We started to seek the leader to include us to the list, but unfortunately didn't found, so we decided just wait. Soon our fan club friends joined us. Then there appeared a security guy and told us that if we (all) keep the order, he'd let us pass before the rest from another entrance. Wow! what a luck! But we had to prove, that we were with the first ones, and we couldn't do this as we didn't have those damn numbers... So I started to cry if anyone had a marker and what number was the last, and fortunately someone found a marker and we urgently drew the following numbers and passed to the entrance in the first rows! But there were almost 2 hours of waiting yet to get inside...Unfortunalely the weather turned bad - it became cold, windy and rainy... damn! So we soaked to skin and frozen while waiting, but I didn't care about it then.
Our Belorussian friends gave be a banner to hold, cause I was in this queue far ahead of them, and they were afraid that they wouldn't be able to get to the 1st row, so they decided to give it to me.
And - yeah!! finally!!! The doors are opened, and we all are running to the entrance to the dance floor
( OMG - I can imagine, how I looked then - among that crazy fan crowd
). Suddenly just in front of me there appears a woman who obviously is intended to stop me... I realize that I just have no time to stop, sause I'm running as fast as I can... so I try to get around her...and unconsciously hit another employee, standing next to her, with my banner... OMG
... I still feel so sorry about it, but I had no choice then, and I had no time for apologies... I only cried "I'm so sorry" on my may...
And...Yoohooo!!! I've done it! I'm standing in the 1st row just in front of Matthias' place!!! WOW!!!! Still can't believe that....
At first there was Swedish group Sabaton - very nice guys, I like them, though their music is a bit heavy for me. And they were pleasantly surprised by our warm welcoming
Here's one of their songs:
And then the show began! I've seen scorps' shows many times on video, but this was my first their live show - and it was fantastic!!!! I've got so much positive energy from them!!! I saw that exactly plushy bear given to James by guys in the airport - he took it to the concert and put before his drums - so nice
- And then I nitice that James is waving to smb... it can't be me - I think to myself, but still waving him back... and he smiles and shows at me... wow!!! can he remember me from airport... unbelievable...)
But... there was a negative moment, as usually in Russia, there were problems with sound
- I saw sad Matt and understood that something was wrong.... damn! But despite these difficulties he still played brilliantely
I was amazed and impressed be Kottak attak - I used to think that it's just a waste of time - but I was wrong! James was just amazing! and during it on big screems there was a video where James performed almost all scorpions albums covers... it was fantasic! Interesting and with humor, of course
Hmm.. my husband, standing next to me, was also impressed by James - now he has Kottak group in his walkman
Pudy was as usually super positive
But unfortunately he didn't come to our side very often.
And Klaus... he was just gorgeous... I don even have words to descibe the feelings I've got from his brilliant unique voice...just perfect
. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to catch a drum stick from him, cause he didn't through them much to my side ( I don't know why, actually
) - but it doesnt actually matter
I've got a great pleasure listening to him alive, to see him on the stage... to charge my batteries with their energy
As for the set list - as I understood, it was standard, but I didn't care, I just enjoyed the show, trying to remember every second of it
Cause I understood, that it was likely the only one their show for me...
And, though I have a sad feeling, that I won't see them any more, won't talk to them, won't see Klaus' kind smile and pure eyes, still it was really unforgettable, amazing and kicking ass gig
