I decided to write the review as soon as I can, so that the emotions will be still so strong!
Well, friends, I had an amazing 4 days in Germany (and not only)! It was quite hard to make this whole trip to come true – no tickets (sold out), ebay-paypal problems, car rental problems, some people, whom I bought plane tickets just.. didn`t came and so and so.. Adry knows in details (haha, sorry bro!)
But it all ddin`t matter now, cause everything I felt on 12th and 13th was amazing!
Quick intro.. I landed on 10th, took the rented car and then visited Luxembougr
- OK, Metz
– I love France, I`m sure now!,Saarbrucken
– nothing special..for a couple of hours, till I got Mainz
, where I slept for a night.I liked the city – my first impression of Germany (never been there since now). I was lucky there were some festival of wine or.. wine market (I don`t know) near the river
. Weather was awesome, full of young people, some german yummy meals and.. lot of wine
! Perfect! Of course, without knowing, I ate Curryvurst
On the early morning I went to the center, took pictures in front of some old buildings and cathedrals and find out a market-place
– so amazing! Again lots of people and lovely smell of fresh vegetables! I love the spirit of this town. It didn`t catched me so much with the architecture (I`ve seen better places), but I loved the sweet, melodic “buzzing” of happy people near me! On road again –Heidelberg
! Left my baggage in the hotel and... fell asleep! I was tired and the weather was sooo hot! So, at 18:00 it was already perfect for a walk – nice town too... Suddenly, while walking, I was surprised by a spring rain so.. went inside a pub.. And even though I told the very friendly waiter that I want weak
Beer!, he didn`t seem to listen to me and gave me strong one … Wow, that german beer.. Just one.. small.. but strong and I was.. wohooo..
12th came! I was surprised I didn`t have butterflies in the stomach in the very morning when leaving Heidelberg to Stuttgart. As if I`m not going to a concert hah
We arrived in some hours, Adry and the Crazy Italians (I`m so happy that I met them) were still traveling. At noon I made a quick tour by car in Stuttgart and yeah.. I`ve already strarted to feel them.. the butterflies! So I went in front of the gates and 12:30 and started to wait.. (too long). I didn`t know anybody so I asked where are the fans (one family) and one guy alone from. The guys was from Germany and he didn`t speak English and the family - from France and it seems they got not few concerts behind their backs
So we started talking, it was fun and time passed quickly.
Later I noticed a girl and she looked to me very familiar – yep, Delphine. Quick chat with her too! It was a pleasure to meet you, Del! Soon THE ITALIANS arrived, so everything was perfect – surrounded by friends and faces I know ( I just could wave to Sarah, cause she came later). So...waiting, waiting, waiting!
The gates opened at 18 and the whole organisation SUCKED ! I haven`t ever thought that Germans can make such an awful organisation.. they are known as very strict and well-organised people..
but not this time. The very front gates were opened but there were another in the venue. So, it didn`t matter, actually, if you have been waiting for 5 hours to be first on the queue, cause everything became a mess. People were pushing, pushing, pushing.. Then, when they opened the other ones and when we got into the hall, there were (?!!?) some place as a kiosk, where you had to show your ticket to a guy and to get a bracelet, so that you can be allowed to get into the front rows! MESS!
Nobady knew that and.. gosh.. everything was a huge mess! Finally, fortunately.. we got into the front rows. On the left corner of the T-walk
Curry – ... tired.. smashed.. but HAPPY
! More to wait.. Supporting band was quite good! I liked their sound, reminded me of Rammstein. The vocal – crazy, crazy, crazy guy!
It was nearly 21:00 when the show started! I forgot everything and the adrenalin rushed into each of my body cell! I am Scorps-addict, I know it for sure!
The show was more than amazing! Guys was well-rested, had a lot of power.. They were non-stop smiling, running.. wow! Klaus' voice, as you have alredy noticed, was TOP! Clear and … magical
He noticed us – Italians and me, as well as Matthias (not me, but the Crazy italians), so they came a lot to our corner. I got a drum stick from Klaus – not especially to me but trown to the audience and fell in front of me, so the guard gave it, towel by Pawel, and a specially given hand-in-hand plec by Rudy.Klaus took my BG flag
and greeted all of us with fist (the stage was very very close to the our corner.. one hand distance!). You probably may already know, but we got We`ll burn the sky, which brought tears in my eyes! I didn`t expected it and.. THANK YOU! Now, when I`m writing all of this.. I became sad, cause it`s not fair such a band to quit.. They have more power and desire to play than everyone in the world
The show was brilliant! Audience – pretty good, above my expectations (I`ve heard Germans were not so.. passionate as Russians and Greeks!). The french family, I met in front of the gates, were on the front of the T. After the show we took a picture and exchange our e-mails! Everything was.. more than perfect! I`m such a lucky girl and has such a good devil
on my right shoulder (you know
So, after the show we went to the hotel of the guys. There I could greet Sarah in personal, finally.. and.. JURGEN! We sat to drink something, to wait for the guys and to relax. First, if I remember clearly, Rudy came – took a photo with us and signed some stuff. He was obviously in very good mood and payed attention to the not small crowd of fans hehe. Later James appeared (both of them – J and R were constantly moving from the restoraunt (may be) to their rooms, so we saw them a couple of times). So again, with James – photos, autographs and smiles
Pawel passed but he didn`t stopped
Then we started talking and talking.. with Jurgen, who I met for a first time, and Adry! Nice friendly conversation, nteresting stories and.. PICTURES!
Why I emphasize on pictures? Cause around 2 or 3 am, not sure.. I was very tired, I was just listening to Juze and Adry talking about the guys, and at the same time I was looking the pictures we`ve made some hours before. I heard Jurget said “Klaus Meine, Klaus Meine”, but I didn`t pay attention, cause I was thinking that they are discussing something about the band. It wasn`t so.. of course. Klaus with Gabi were coming. Klaus waved to the other fans and stopped to us to fist-greet us... What did I do with this camera I was holding in my hands?! NOTHING
I freezed, I freaked out (silently) and didn`t know what to do..
I act like a retard and I`m so sorry about that..
I don`t remember if I said something..
But I really forgot my words even in my native language! I feel so stuped now.. and so sorry
Klaus, sorry, sorry, sorry...
Hope he didn`t though it was somehow disrespectful, cause I didn`t even standed up.. I didn`t know how to react.. blah..
Sorry again, sweet Klaus!
At the very end, before leaving the hotel, we saw Matthias and Rudy (again) with their ladies. They waved, didn`t stopped, but smiled at us and went inside the elevator. So, we took a taxi to the hotel and tried to get some power for the coming day and show!...to be continued...
