Saturday 26th:in the morning i had a breakfast with Kirthana and Gianluca,then i met my crazy italian friends,and Marina, and after a fast lunch we went to the venue of the show (with some problems to find the place), there we met Kristof with his family, and Phillip, and soon many other Fosers came, Ruta a bit late as usual
Before to go inside the arena, Salvatore lead us to sing some song to "warm" the atmosphere, and it sounded very funny.....at least it seemed people around us loved it
Doors opened at 18.30 about, and after a very fast run, i got the first row,right side in front of Klaus.
First band....honestly they were not so bad, problem was the too many sound effects they put on the voice, you can understand no word,i neither know if they were singing in english or french
Before Scorpions came on stage, i can see Ben,and i called him,he went on my side and gave me the post-card,with b-day wishes from the band, that was a very nice surprise to see it directly there.And it's been a great pleasure to meet Ben by person,you really rock!!!!!!
Then Scorpions.......the band was in a perfect mood,Klaus didn't appear as he was sick few days before, his voice was perfect.
Moments i will never forgive are, and i will never stop to say THANK YOU KLAUS:
at the end of Coast to Coast,he threw his plectrum to me,but a guy next to me got it......Klaus looked at him and with his hands, "said" that's not for you, it's for him (me) , i've been lucky that guy finally gave me the plec........
and at the end of the concert (i didn't realize it), Marco came to me and said"hey Adrian did you hear Klaus said your name?" .....i was shocked, and i told him it was impossible.......but when i return to home, and i checked on web......well Marco was right.......and when i think to that moment i can't stop to smile!!!!
there are emotions that i can't explain by words, but......the satisfaction that i got at the end of the concert, when the band look at you, and they recognized to you, they remember your name.......uff.......i think i got everything from this band, i couldn't ask for more.
After the show,before to leave the arena,i can meet some Fosers (once again i'll write no names,but you know who i mean
) and we went to the band hotel.
Situation there was not friendly.....we were "too many" fans, and i didn't feel confortable there.We decided to sit in the bar of the hotel and after few minutes came a guy of the crew and said "sorry guys but Klaus is tired,blah blah blah" .....and we didn't move from the bar.............then he came back and he said "Rudolf and Matthias already left,blah blah blah"........it was a nice way to say,"it would be good if you would leave the hotel".......and finally we did it........and we've been lucky to meet Klaus on the way, and he's been nice, as always to take some time to take pictures with us.
I hope he will get well,cause after the show his voice wasn't very good,come on Klaus!!!!!!
sunday 27th:the day after,in the morning, i came back to the hotel (i didn't believe Rudolf and Matthias left Bruxelles after the show) togheter with Marta and Kadrrrrrrrrrrra
we met there David, and Kirthana (she came to say goodbye to me). While we were waiting there came the car driver of the band (I already met him in Basel) and he said that the band already left the hotel ,but not Pawel. Time to say goodbye to Kirthana and Curry,they left before us, and there I met with Emilie (her mom) and Diego, and it was time for me to say goodbye too.
Togheter with them ,I went to the airport,we had two different flight at the same time at the same airport,so we can spend last hours togheter,talking about all our travel/concert/experience.
At Munich airport….i met once again the same man I found on Thursday morning…..and once again I “had” to listen him for 1 hour…..i wanted to escape!!!!!!!!!
