These days I have a massive post-concert depression so I have decided to write some kind of the review of Simple Plan & We The Kings concert which took place in Vienna, Austria (26th March 2012).
This was the first time that me and my best friend went to Vienna on our own. I was full of excitement but I have to admit that I was also a bit scared because Vienna is a huge city and it is easy to get lost there. When we finally arrived to Vienna we were a bit confused which way we should have taken. Briefly said, we got lost twice (it is not that much, is it? :D ) – once when we could not find underground in Sudtiroler Platz but fortunately, we found a bus which drove us near to the entrance of this underground; and the second time we got a bit lost in the underground because we should have found the tube U1 and we were like “OMG, but what if this one is leading to the other side of the city and not to that one where we should get?“ But then we found out (how surprising!) that in this platform, there were both tubes, one leading to the station were we should have changed the tubes, and the other one leading on the other side.
It was about 3pm when we finally reached the venue. Fortunately, we know that we are next to the venue when we saw Simple Plan fans with the T-shirts with the band’s logo. We happily stayed in the row (okey it was not that happily…we were quite bored and it was freezing there too) untill 6pm when stupid dumb security guy who was not even able to speak English properly said us to move back because he had just decided that they should have built the barriers in front of the entrance! So what happened? The fans that came at 5pm and later were the first in the row and we, the fans who came at 2pm or 3pm were standing behind them! It was sooo unfair! We also met there some slovak fans who really helped us because they told us where to find the tourbus and meet he guys :)
After 7pm, security guards started to check our tickets and also our bags (drinks & food were not allowed). And I really have to say that one of the security guards was really rough guy, he nearly hurt one fan just because the fans standing behind her were pushing her forward!
Then I was finaly inside of the building….but I had to wait for my best friend who I lost somewhere behind me in the crowd.
After her arrival, we quickly moved to venue and we were so close to the stage, concretely in the 5th row! It was really hot there and we also did not have anything to drink so I was a bit stressed that I am gonna faint or something like that (but I did not! Whooop! :D ).
Precisely at 8pm, We The Kings started their show! I have to admit that these guys were bloody amazing! I really fell in love with their song “Say You Like Me“ and now I am listening to it again and again :) I really do not understand why they are not that famous in Slovakia because these guys are f**king ah-mazing!
After 9pm, Simple Plan got to the stage! I just cannot even describe how super-mega-awesome was their show! It was the kick-ass performance! I have never seen something like that before! And I was sooo close to them! :’) David also did a stage diving but unfortunately on the other side of the crowd :P Party medley, where Pierre and Seb were dancing in the most funny way (and I am not even mentioning Pierre´s dancing during I am Sexy And I Know It because it was a killer combination! ;) ) was totally massive. I also heard that this show in Vienna was one of the best shows they have EVER made! So I am really grateful that I could be a part of it!
After the concert, we were ready to look for the tourbus, and we did not even have to look for it for a long time because some fans lead us there :P The first guys there were Danny Duncan and Travis Clark from We The Kings. I got an autograph from Danny and then I was like: “Can I also have a picture with you?“ and Danny was soo nice: “Yeah, of course.“ Then I said thanks and he told me: “Thanks. You are awesome!“ I was like in seventh heaven! :D We wanted to have a photo with Travis too but the band’s driver was in hurry and really nervous and there were so many fans that Travis did not even get to us to give us an autograph but he yelled from the bus at us:
I just have to say that 26th March 2012 was definitely one of the best days of my life and I really hope that I am gonna meet the guys again!
