Yes, there was heavy rain during the show, just like a year ago in Tarnów.
It was my eight show, the last one, but definitely the one I will have the worst memories from. In the beginning everything was going as planned, thanks to Marta we got perfect places, but during the first support right behind me and two friend of mine appeared two guys, being drunk, aggressive and looking for a fight. Security did nothing, they just stood there like lampposts and stared at the whole scene. We were so afraid, that we decided to change our places, but it was impossible to find any... well, not good, even acceptable ones.
(By the way, security s*cked so hard that it was hard to imagine, they didn't even let a disabled man on wheelchair to go behind the barriers, so in fact he had no chance to enjoy the show he went to.) Thank you, security guys, you were such professionals (but a pity, that in spoiling the show, not secuiring it)!
We ended up somewhere by the fence, seeing perfectly nothing. I'm very sad and disappointed it turned out to be like that, because firstly, with great probability I can say it was my last concert ever, and I wanted to have great memories from it, not so bad ones. Secondly, friends I was there with, ever been to such show before, and they wanted to see Scorpions, because I've told them many times, that it's something wonderful, extraordinary, and they surely won't regret it, and the shows are not as dangerous as they thought. But everything turned out quite contrary.
I mean, the band played really great show, I was nicely surprised by 'Hit Between the Eyes', and I am sure that all of the people closer to the stage had a fun as great as the one I usually had. But trying to watch the show from behind backs of people who didn't even know why we should sing 'sto lat' and stood like lampposts wasn't the best experience we could have.
One god thing is, that for a moment we were near the truck and I had a possibility to talk to Ben for a while
Ben, it was ice to meet you
After the show the bad luck continued, my phone broke, so I couldn't even contact anybody
And as we were tired, soaked, but overall disheartened, instead of afterparty we decided to go back home. Due to lines in the ticket office we missed one train (though we ran like crazy, and I made to my knees even more harm thanks to that), and the second one, two hours later, was delayed for about one hour. And so overcrowded, that we spent next three hours standing in the corridor. :/
Ruta, I'm glad I met you (and your sister) finally, it's a big pity we didn't even have more time to talk
But I hope we'll met again one day
Marta, mam nadzieję, że Marysia przekazała co ze mną i przeprosiła wszystkich, jak prosiłam? Telefon mi wysiadł jeszcze na koncercie, a nie pamiętałam żadnych numerów, więc to i tak cud, że udało mi się tą kupę złomu uruchomić na kilkanaście minut
