MY EXPERIENCE SEEING LINKIN PARK LIVE!

16 Apr

On the 11th of November 2010, me and my best friend Allanah went to see Linkin Park live in the O2 arena in London! Now, we only found out that we were going on the Monday of that week. And the date of the show was on Thursday! We had only til then to sort out travel, money and a time shcedule for when we go. Allanah and I had never been to a live show before, so this was new to us. We hadn’t even travelled alone before! So, we had to trust our instincts to get us there safe. It hadnt hit me that I was going to see my favorite band, in the world, that day until wr actually got there though. It was crazy!
When we first got up, I literally had butterflies. I sprang myself up from Allanahs bed- I stayed round hers the night before- and landed with a thud on the wooden sides of her bed. I broke it. I began the day, breaking her bed! What was funny about the situation, was how we just looked at eachother after the cracked up; meaning that we laughed our heads off! She wasnt even angry at me because we were both so pumped up!
We got ready and left the house, stupidly without nothing too eat, and happily marched our way down to the train station. We got our day tickets  and Allanah got herself a sausage roll, and us two a drink. We then waited for the first train.
Now, we didn’t know our way well, but we literally improvised the entire journey! We only took one wrong train, and found our way there eventually. We got the arena at around 5:00pm, one hour before the show, and luckily wasnt too far from the front of the line. People were already there, and had been there since 10:00am! Crazy!  When the time came for us to head in, me and Allanah got so lucky. LIKE REALLY LUCKY! We got pulled through my the staff to line up so we could get let in, and got put in the first lane. So, we got in first!  We ended up right at the front with the LPU fans; fans who were there since earlier on because they met the band ect; the got front-front row. We already had standing tickets, so we were lucky for that anyhow. But now we were now only two metres from the stage! Only two people were infront of me!
When Linkin Park started to perform, I cried. Yes, I cried. I was so happy! They played the Catalyst first, and it was amazing to be in a room where thousands of people knew the words, and loved the song as much as I did! Back home, I didn’t know hardly anyone who loved Linkin Park as much as me. There, I was overwhelmed by the amount of energy in the room!  When Wrentches and Kings came on, which was the third song played, I literally died. A mosh pit behind me started, and due to our lack of food intake that day, we had no energy to keep ourselves upright. I was ok, because I was used to not eating much. But for Allanah , who eats all the time, not eating much was hard for her. She went really pale, and looked like she was going to faint. We had to get out. It took an hour for us to push our way past the pushing and shoving and eventually got pulled out of the front. NOW HOW STUPID IS THIS; I get pulled out, and at this moment in time, I was literally half a metre from Chester Bennigton and Mike Shinoda. I DIDN’T LOOK UP. I feel so stupidf for not taking advantage of that moment!!Next, we got taken to some guys who were guards or something, and they put X’s on our hands. One of the guys started feeling up my hands;  at the time I didn’t notice, but according to Allanah he was. Apparently, he wrote the X on her hand and shoved it like it was nothing. I had to admit, he did spend time drawing my X. He was even like, ”Are you ok? Are you sure?” … Weirdo. It wasnt until we got lead round to the back, that Allanah pointed out my shirt; it was really low; it had been pulled down by the guy who pulled me out. HOW EMBARRASING! That means that Linkin Park might have seen my bra! AND IT’S NOT LIKE MY BOOBS ARE SMALL! It was so funny looking back on that though! ahaha! We ended up being put to the back, which isnt that bad! I enjoyed the freedom of being able to breathe back there :,)  The show was amazing. the bass made my insides jiggle! I LOVED IT! If you are a fan of Linkin Park; SEE THEM LIVE.
