hi guys!this is my review from the budapest concert on the 7th of july!
please red it!lots of things have happened to Greta,Mona and me so please read and post comments!sorry it's a bit long
before the meet and greet:
ok,i ordered my vip ticket only one day before the show and i was really scared because i had the feeling that i didn't manage to order them correctly,but the next morning my dad phoned the ticketpro agency or whatever and they told him that everything is ok and that i ordered them!!i was soo freaking happy because this was my first time to see avril!!
finaly i went to the budapest concert and i had to travel 4 hours from zagreb(the capital of croatia)to budapest,and the ride was passing really slowly because i was so nervous because Greta(xXoavriloXx),her friend Mona and i were supposed to meet infront of the line on the venue at 5:15 because all 3 of us had vip!!
finally i came to the venue at 5:15 and i was really confused because there were already soooo many people and i didn't know anyone,and then i just saw a girl with blond hair and a pink and purple streak in her hair and another girl with black hair!it was greta!!and the other girl was mona!!we ran like crazy to each other and hugged!!Greta and Mona are really 2 amazing girls and they are sooo nice and talkative!!
the meet and greet:
the next thing i know is that we saw John(!!!)-avril's bodyguard and he was soo cool and awsome!!we said to him that we are the VIPs and he asked for our ticket to prove it and then he took us with him!
we all got the vip passes and blue wristbands(or whatever) from a really nice lady who's name was Lizzie,and waited for like half an hour,but the time flew by because it was really fun to talk to Greta and Mona!
finaly the moment came and we all went inside a big room and waited for Avril!then finaly i saw a little blond girl walking to us with big steps and i realized that it was Avril!!she looked sooo damn good in that yellow t-shirt with black bats on it and jeans!!but then she turned left to another room where the meet and greet was supposed to happen!!
Greta,Mona and i were the first 3 after a lady and her daughter!everybody was walking out soo happy after meeting her and that made me even more nervous!!finaly i went into the roon and there she was!standing there with a big smile and a pen in her right hand!!
the conversation looked like this:
me: (i shook her hand) hi avril!i'm iva!it's nice to meet you!!
avril: (smiles) nice to meet you to!do you have anything for me to sign?
me: yes!this picture!
me: can you also sign me my vip pass please?
avril: sure! (signing...)
me:thank you so much! (because she signed me two things although the rule was only one thing)
avril: now the picture(with a cute smile on her face)
me: (after the picture) oh yeah,i made this for you!(a pink envelope with my picture holding a sign:i love you,iva from avrilbandaids.com,a drawing of her and deryck and a letter)
avril: thank you!
then i walked out of the room with my knees shaking,and i sat down because of that and i just started to cry out of happiness!lol!
Greta,Mona and i ran out like crazy to buy some things at the merch store before they let the people with normal tickets in!i bought a cup and a black t-shirt with a picture of Avril on the front and with all the european tour dates on the back!then we ran like crazy to the stage and we got the very front row in the middle!it was perfect and we were soo excited!
but then it started raining and avril's crew sent us in so we don't get wet!shortly after that the other people were also sent in and there were sooo many people in the room that it got really hot only minutes after that!
we thought that the show is going to be like half an hour late because we thought the rain will stop soon but we ended up waiting 2 and a half freaking hours in a room with a lot of people who were all sweaty!but the good thing was that Greta,Mona and i met 2 italian girls who were awsome!!one of them(Francy) is also a bandaids member!!
after those 2 and a half hours the line started moving and soon after that the whole stadium was already filled but we vip people decided to wait for John and Lizzie because they told us that they will pick us up and that we will have the front row and we were so pissed because the front row was already taken and we didn't know what's gonna happen with us!
FINALLY we saw John and he said:sorry guys,you won't get the front row!and we all nearly started crying(lol) but then i heard john talking to somebody through his microphon and he said:i have 20 VIPs here,what should i do?
shortly after that he came to us and said:guys,we're going backstage!!!
and we all started screaming and were so freaking excited!!
then Lizzie came to us and talked with us for a while and i said to her that i'll say good things about her and John on bandaids,and then she said:you're from bandaids??that's awsome!me and john visit bandaids once in a while!SO THAT MEANS AVRIL'S BODYGUARD JOHN AND AVRIL'S VIP COORDINATOR LIZZIE VISIT BANDAIDS!!WOOHOO! after that Lizzie said that we are going backstage after the first 2 songs but something happened and we got backstage after 4 or 5 songs,but that doesn't matter because we were soo close to the stage and it was awsome and avril touched our hands becuase we were in the front and the show was amazing!
but then it started raining heavily again and we were all wet in like 15 seconds but that was also freaking awsome!!
we were just getting into the show as avril started playing sk8er boi and we were all like:WTF??already??
then i remember that greta looked at me and i don't know if she was crying or was it because of the rain but she looked really sad because avril played only 11 songs for us and left us all wet standing there!!we couldn't believe the show was over but still i'm very very happy i got the opportunity to meet her and after all,i think that it was awsome,and the rain didn't bother me that much personally but i saw the looks on other people's faces...but i'll most certanly remember that day forever!
