AND HERE - QAL IVAA
New year,new concert adventure.
But hey hey, POLAND IS NOT ON THIS YEAR'S TOURLIST,WHAT TO DO!
One group of people- They'll be back in next year
Me: MUM, WE'RE GOING TO BERLIN!
So once I said it needs to be done! Ya know, buying tickets,getting ready for trips etc...and the months were passing by until the travel day has come. I was travelling (as always) by train. In da train I met couple of polish glamberts,who after me decided to go to Berlin A few hours later I welcomed Berlin and Belrin welcomed me with fernsehturm. I always wanted to go to Berlin, since i've been a massive Tokio Hotel fan.
After the checking-in and plugging in the room stuff I decided to go to the venue. To see how it look and check the way to get not lost in the next day. The venue is big,is beautiful. In Poland we have that not venues.
While I was on my way to the venue I spotted a few Queenbert trucks! I was like OMFGGG the Queen trucks! It's happening! Honestly- when I saw the first truck I immediately froze. I was schocked my mum had to pinch me to make me alive again HAHAHAHAHA . I was so happy,that I saw QAL trucks. It;s such a good preledium to the show. Later,after checking the venue here and there I decided to to a little photoshoot with a polish flag.
Next day there was absolutely no time for any truck photoshoots....
ON THE NEXT DAY
I set my alarm clock for 4am but I woke up at 3:50 am . I got all ready in 5 minutes and after the breakfast I run to the venue. In time- I was the last one who closed the first 10 people waiting at the venue. I was 10 and I started the camp at 5:00 am.
Yes- a camp. This queining was a real glambert camp. We talked,we ate,we lived together in one place. This was a different experience for me. And much better than polish queues.
Nobody was like oh crap what the f you're doing here. Everyone was so friendly and nice.
And we were one. Ofc 2 hours before entering to the venue was a bit mess from the security about lines and nobody went that higly cuckoo as I;ve seen in PL before. Even the numbers have been respected.
Queining in Germany was a good experience for me.
There were moments,where I felt bad,but the thought,that soon I'm going to see Adam made me feel alive again. I don't know how this happened. How I found more forces to survive.
I met so many wonderful people- germanberts and those, who I know from social media- twitter,facebook, ig, Adam Lamber uk fb group.
Thanks for your company again!
The entering to the venue was super easy and calm! I was 8th to the enter on the 3rd door. Quick checking- everything's ok. Until ... I ran a little and I almost falled down to the floor. But luckily I stopped to run and just went quickly to not fall completely down. In time- on the barrier on the left side for me there were last places so I quickly jumped and yaas, I got the first fucking row for the 6th time! I was so happy so happy! I stood where I exactly wanted and with whom I wanted A big stone has fallen down from my heart- 13 hours of camping was so worth it it didin't waste!
Barrier bunnies lives everywhere
Ok- I sent a quick SMS messages to my parents, where I am and then the last line of waiting has begun. Our entertainers were the security guys who were really nice and warmed us up to do some clap clap-s and dayoh-s like we do with Freddie in (almost) the end of the concert.
We were having a really good fun with them. Inside I felt the AC- I had some fresh air to breathe. That;s a big plus. In Poland nothing is working to make the very warm air a bit cooler.
And we were waiting and waiting and waiting.....
the QAL slogan written on the wall started to shake
the lights slowly went down
Someone started to go out through the wall
Fans started to scream
We see Frank the robot
THE CAGE OPENS AND HERE THEY ARE!
THE HEROES I'VE BEEN WAITING TO SEE FOR SO MANY DAYS
Screaming,crying from happiness, Adam started to sing and he literally attacked with Tear it up.
Holy fuck, it was so intense!
I've heard this song for the very first time live and I hope not the last.
This concert was a one big musical with the most precious voice which today's world can listen.
And I'm so fucking proud of the fact, that I stan the most talented singer of the world.
He evolved his voice since the last concert in Lodz I've attended. The force of his voice has absolutely no boundaries. Shivers ,strong shivers all the time, he can bring you to the whole catalogue of feelings- from cheering until crying. I love him to death and I've done everything during the show to make him feel happy. ( and I was not the only one ;)) )
Interactions with Adam? There were so many of them. OMG he stood on the catwalk near me for SO many times, during whole show, (sending him a tweet where I am was the ebst idea tbh) He was looking at me for so many times,he smiled so wide when he have seen me going crazy he loved how much I enjoyed the show. He have heard me screaming and singing and dancing.
He saw,that I was taking photos of him ,that I smile to him. He must know that he gives me so much joy and in the grey life of a grey factory worker and he's my little sunshine in my life.
Did anyone see the video of IWIA and wondered what he is doing with his head in the end of the song where he is near Roger? He was doing a little headbang. he wanted to be like me hahahaha . Nobody does a headbang during Bri;s IWIA guitar solo .It's hard to just stay and do absolutely nothing. You have to enjoy the show to the fullest, if you don;t want to stay at home.
His headbang was cute but kinda funny ( bc he has short hair hahaha :D)
I love Adam.
Brian also stood for so many times where I am together with Adam and also solo!
. I think he remembers me from the Lodz show. If it's true-I;m honored
During the somebody to love call and response Adam wanted to hear us screaming somebody. My side was pretty quiet...? And I was screaming like crazy.
Second try- I screamed like I was giving a birth to a baby. After that Adam made a funny face and he said to me nice. HE SAID TO ME NICE WTF
There was no radio GAGA hand touch. I'm not sad at all- I still didin't forget the touch from Lodz and I think I will never forget...
He was looking to my camera again and I captured it in two pics (link to my pics later )
After all these craziness with Adam- some magical moments with Bri. LOML always touch my heart and soul. My mum ( she was w me as well) said that she cried during whole song.
She also loves Queen and Adam like me. She told to me,that next time she wants to be on standing area. Well, she will be forced to camp together with me
Back to the show. The 2nd part with Adam happened mostly on the b-stage and I saw his back. So I just enjoyed the music,the pure magic and his voice.
Majestatic WWTLF turned the magic to its uniqal beauty even more.
As a dessert-Bri's solo.
Bo Rhap was playing from ,,Is this a real life'' until the gong. Adam stood in a big platform which flew high. I was a bit scared that Adam would fall down, but no. The whole stage arragement for this song looked really beautiful.
When Adam ended Bo Rhap Freddie came up and we did daaaaaaaaaaaayoooooh-s!
They can make you threw your lungs from your body!
After it Adam and the band came again to do WWRY and WATC. Adam in the gold cape looks like a real king, really majestatic. After Adam;s last screaming at WATC confetti exploded and it glued all over me like in Oswiecim.....
They did many bow down's and went off stage. At this point all I wanted to do was crying. I quickly grab a lot of confetti,thanked to my pals for their company and went out the venue.
I stood on the place, where I was waiting for my mum, did a phone call to my dad. I said that show is over and I'm out and I'm waiting for my mum and I started to cry. I was literally crying in public. From happiness that everything went so good and how I wished and already from missing Adam. My dad kept saying ,,Sweetie don't cry be happy that you have seen him again!'' Then my mum came and she hugged me tight. At this point I was a total emotional mess. But a happy one.
Usually I don't cry in public,but emotions went higher as I expected.
I needed 10 minutes to calm down then I went to the hotel...
From the merch stand I bought only white tshirt w QAL silver logo and dates on back. That was only thing I didin't have (the rest I bought in Lodz).
Each QAL show I'm attending gives me so much joy, positive energy, and also moments where I cry.
This is a wonderful trampoline from a normal life. It's also a time machine. It takes us all to these times , mixing the today perfectly.
It was my 4th QAL concert and not the last. I will be attending their shows as long as they will play together as QAL.
Adam's song- Lucy in a Queen version sounds so massive. Even massive even rock-ish than originally on TOH. I was so happy to hear this song live again 2 years since TOHT....
And to hear also a original gutiar solo.
On the day after I came home.... until today I can't get myself together... post concert depression is still high... need to see them again. Need to hear Adam's voice again. Eh..
All I have to do is waiting. And working days and nights. Adam is my motivation to work.
Thanks for another wonderful experience Adam. Until next time. I love you to death.
