|- The journey , The end of it all -|
TENSION TENSION TENSION - Anywhp/how/ho hum, the irony of it was, just when i decided to go for the concert, something had to go wrong. I smell a Murphy's law. I booked the bus tickets, and SURPRISE SURPRISE - NO concert tickets. Da hell. This wasn't any ordinary bus , Itt was a bus filled with hobbits & wizards. Ok, that wasn't even funny. It was one of these special busses for em die hard Metallica fans. Advantages of it ? Unlimited booze + metallica fan heads + a karaoke metallica session on the bus . Yeh thats how i like to roll (or maybe a nice peaceful bus ride would have been alright to0). By now, i'm all excited and stuff, but to my bad luck i couldn't land 2 tickets for me and my friend . Short story long, I pleaded, I begged, I cried, and my prayers were answered by the Metallica Gods themselves. Some dude from pune couldnt make it & so he ended up giving me his tickets for the concerts . HOOO RRR AAA HHH !!!!! *Say it with me* HooooRaaaH
BUS BUS BUS - So my friend & me picked up another friend and then picked up another and then another(this goes on) & finally met another friend of theirs and headed to the pick up point.(sounds like a prostitution racket). Bus was originally scheduled for 9 30 but ended up starting around 10 30.(Kya Yaar). We somehow got unlucky and landed in bus 2 instead of bus 1 . The journey was erm alright but not without hiccups & PEE-SToPS , food breaks and other shit(literaly) . So what was originally supposed to be a 16 hour ride turned out to being a massive 28 hour ride. F*** ME.
Conclusion : except for Goa or Pune im never ever gonna travel by bus . plane or tain it is
VENUE VENUE VENUE - We landed @ the venue all sweaty and tired. We began to wait in line. It was about 12 pm now and the gates were supposed to open @ 3 . The crowds were getting restless and MIKE TYSON the sweaty bouncer along with another wide ass bouncer wasn'tot letting everyone in . After scuffling and making our way through security check 1. We made our way to security check 2 .From there another 1 hour wait . Then finally as we passed security check 2 we ran like shit to secure our place so we all could see Metallica as close as possible.
SAFETY FIRST SAFETY FIRST SAFETY FIRST - After securing our place as close to the stage as possible , we were treated to some bald phirangi (foreigner) dude who wouldn't start the concert unless we moved to the right and left and who kept saying - SAFETY FIRST (Hey, this isn't a condom ad, baldy!! We were treated to 3 opening bands . BIFFY CLYRO - who's opening act was fuckin awesome . They aren't new, they are a Scottish band and pretty famous and have a really really big fan following .Watch their live concerts on youtube
GOD GOD GOD - Then the gods of metal came out , FUCKING INSANE . 30 years ,yes 30 years we waited for this . We were not going to let another DELHI happen to us . Metallica came out in full swing and kicked ass . The fans including me went ballistic. Truly an epic moment. They played 18 songs in total ending it with the most epic song "SEEK AND DESTROY". Metallica is one of the only few bands which can get 3 generations to come and rock out . That means you can see a father and his son, as young as 10 rocking and headbanging together at a rock concert .
