Well hello there! It's been a while!
Fucking school work is killing me recently. I officially give up to be honest though. It's all too
much for my pea sized brain. Anyways...
30th October 2010 = THE
BEST DAY OF MY ENTIRE LIFE SO FUCKING FAR!
Seeing Avenged Sevenfold live had totally made my year. Nothing can top that off!
For any of you who want to hear about my Avenged day, continue to read :D!
I woke up around 6:30 am ish, and had about 4 hours sleep because I was just so fucking excited! I
was like a little kid at Christmas! Except Avenged pwn `Santa'.
I got ready with my friend who stayed over the night, who also couldn't sleep much and mumbled for
the majority of time when she actually was asleep. My other friend met up with us around 7:20
and from there we all went to Bournemouth with my mother :') hahaa! And her friend, to get the coach
Well skipping my boring coach journey, we arrived around about 10 am in London and went straight for
the queue at the Hammersmith Apollo! None of us had even had breakfast at this point. But yea, my
two friends and I were in that queue for 8 hours in total! It was fucking FREEZING! Meanwhile
I was texting Built For Syn for a while which passed a little time. But other than that we
all sat chatting to those who were next to us, eating, drinking, making a fire, sitting on bin bags,
hiding under bin bags from the rain and occasionally getting more food from my mum. And
eventually an umbrella! It rained about 3-4 times altogether. It was madness!
There were some people who camped out from THURSDAY! That's pure dedication! They even got a free
meet & greet pass O: ! So jealous of them! And some chick who was there who spoke to them about
it filmed them or something talking about it all and said she was going to contact Warner about it
too! Just wow!
Anyways, Hellyeah, were a lot better live than their recorded stuff. I'm not a fan but it was a lot
better than I thought it would have been! The crowd were pretty lazy and didn't interact much,
however some guy behind me was moshing away and his hair kept hitting me. Lol at him! Also, there
was some hobo looking guy behind the amps by the drums rocking out by himself! I was dying of
laughter with my friends. Bless him :')
After about half an hour wait I was suddenly squished to death against the girl in front of
me. ( Oh yea, I was on the second row! ;D And the girl in front of me was shorter than me!
WOOH! ) carrying on... Stone Sour came out after a big opening of We Will Rock
You which got the crowd pretty warmed up for them. Again, I'm not a big Stone Sour fan,
but it was a good experience. They played really well, and I had a blast being squished against some
chick. ( I hope you guys pick up on sarcasm ;] )
Then during the second wait we had, for Avenged Sevenfold to set up, I died. I got squished
so much during Stone Sour, I was drenched in Sweat, and my friends were totally fine. I
envied them. However, I was willing to put up with it for the love of my life :') hahaa.
Eventually, the big black curtain dropped as the opening to Nightmare started to blare out through
the speakers. That moment made me want to cry! I was so happy. I was being squished to death yet, I
really didn't care. I secured my place on second row and I wasn't moving any time fucking soon.
Synyster Gates walked out first and I swear, my heart leaped out of my body. I was on Syns side, and
I'm glad I was! He came out with a white mask revealing his chin. His gorgeous chin. Then you had
Johnny also wearing a mask, but that wasn't as special ;D hahaa. Then along came Mike, then Zack,
then finally Matt.
I must say, Zack cleaned up well for this show, and I'm proud of him! I swear I drooled when
he walked out. Not kidding.
The guitars kicked in eventually to Nightmare and I was totally taken away by being practically
ONE AND A HALF FUCKING METERS AWAY FROM SYNYSTER FUCKING GATES! Ok, that's
finally off my chest. xD
The set list is rough in my mind so I'll double check this later:
Anyways, after Critical Acclaim, Matt JUMPED into the audience. Fucking amazing! I must say I got
even more squished and was unable to touch him hahaa, but still it was amazing! I was SOOOOOO CLOSE!
D: Yet so far. However Syn was still in my eye sight, so I was pretty fucking satisfied. Once Matt
was back on stage his T-shirt was in pieces. We are a feisty lot ;D I have a video I think! I
shall Youtube it soon and put a link on my profile :] go check it out the day after I've posted this
or soon anyways haha.
Before So Far away kicked in, the banner behind changed to the image of Jimmy, Brian and Johnny
hugging. That's when I knew So Far Away was next. My eyes started to tear up immediately. The crowd
stopped pushing and silenced whilst Matt spoke to us about how dear Jimmy was to him and how he was
with us at that very moment watching with us. I'll admit, I cried like a baby. Ok not that much, but
tears were streaming down my face. I was staring at Brian's saddened expression the whole time,
occasionally looking over at Matt for a few seconds but Brian was in my eye sight line.
My video of part of Matt's speech :')
Towards the end of God Hates Us, I had had enough. I couldn't put up with it anymore. I was being
punched several times and felt so faint and as though I was going to puke. By this time one of my
friends had already been pulled out after Welcome to the Family. The big body guard woman came along
and pulled me out along with some other guys help and I also had a little shove from the girl next
to me who was quite nice (: except for her constant yelling in my ear and slight shoving haha.
However, being pulled out was the best thing EVER. I was crippled over in pain crying
from the shooting pain in my back yet, I looked to my left seeing the crowd and a medic helping me
along and then I looked to my right and saw Zacky Vengeance, staring at me. I swear to god I was the
happiest person Alive at that moment in time. I fucking loved it. ZV staring at me crippled over
crying in pain whilst he continued to play. Then I got helped along whilst in total shock and pain
to the medical room. And I lay there for the rest of the show with my friend who was pulled out
I'm glad I only missed two songs however I'm sad I missed them and their goodbye. But there's always
next time ehh? ;D hahaha!
Anyways, I had an amazing night and I hope you didn't get bored reading about my night!
I fucking loved it! Every second of it! Even sitting in the queue with random people who we just
managed to socialize with easily!
