|- The journey , The end of it all -|
Have ya heard of the term "virgin" , ok so you have . but have you heard of the term "concert virgin" . Thats me the latter. I have never been to a concert in my life , and i wasnt even ready to go for one . To be honest , i wasnt willing to spend over 7 g $$$ for a bus tix and a metallica concert. ( Yes i travelled by bus , whats wrong with me right) ???
TENSION TENSION TENSION - Anyways the irony of it all was , just when i decided to go for the concert something had to go wrong. Oh well that always happen to me . I booked the bus tickets , so i had bus tickets and no concert tickets. LOL . This wasnt any odinary bus , it was a special "forwhomthebussrolls" bus where only metallica metal heads would be travelling on it . Advantages of it ?? unlimted booze + metallica fan heads + karoke metallica on the bus . Yeh thats how i like to roll . So i booked the tickets for the bus because there were only 3 seats remaining. So now im all excited and stuff but to my bad luck i couldnt land 2 tickets for me and my friend . long story short , i begged , pleaded and my prayers were answered . Some dude from pune , couldnt make it so he ended up giving me his tickets for the concerts . HOOO RRR AAA HHH !!!!!
BUS BUS BUS - so me and my friend picked up another friend and her friend and finally met another friend of theirs and headed to the pick up point . bus was originally scheduled for 9 30 but ended up starting around 10 30 . We somehow got unlucky and landed in bus 2 instead of bus 1 . The journey was erm alright but not without hiccups . Tons of PEE-SToPS , food breaks and other shit . So what was originally supposed to be a 16 hour ride turned out being a 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. and we began to wait it line . It was about 12 pm now and the gates were supposed to open @ 3 . The crowds were getting restless and MR MIKE TYSON the bouncer along with another one was not 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 . We were treated to 3 opening bands . BIFFY CLYRO opening act was fkin 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.com
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 . It was like 7th heaven . The fans including me were historic . 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 who can see a father and his son as young as 10 rocking and headbanging together at a rock concert . If a picture had to decribe what i just said then --------------------------------------- take a look below . Truly EPIC
