Det var inte riktigt Westlifes dag. Både Shane och Mark verkade ha problem med sina mikrofoner, det var ingenting jag hörde när de sjöng men de var och pratade med mikrofonnissen (Grubby tror jag för övrigt att han hette?) flera gånger under konserten. Sen så ramlade Kian under medleyt och Shane glömde helt bort texten i You raise me up. World of our own var bara totalt kaos. Bandet spelade fel och Westlife dansade fel. Jag tyckte att det var underhållande men jag tror inte att de var speciellt nöjda.
Sen till arenan. Den såg ut som ett byggprojekt alternativt ett stort garage och kanske en tredjedel av platserna (där det dessutom satt folk) var liksom utanför arenan och snett bakom scenen. Väldigt konstigt byggt, värre än SECC i Glasgow. Vi hade, enligt biljetten, platser på första raden på parketten. Visserligen lite snett åt sidan och nästan på gränsen att vi skulle hamna på platserna där utanför. Dessutom spontansatte de alla rullstolsplatser framför oss. Nu spelade väl det ingen större roll men av principskäl vill jag ha rad ett om det står på biljetten att jag har det.
Nicky och Mark vinkade i alla fall åt oss och vår lilla flagga och Shane började visst asgarva åt oss när vi dansade med i Picture of you. Vi hade ju sett konserten några gånger vid det här laget så vi kunde nästan alla deras danser utantill.
Så här bloggade jag om konserten och Aberdeen direkt när vi kom hem 2007,
Took the bus to Aberdeen. Which took about 3½h… a bit too long! At first Aberdeen was as bad as Sheffield was last year. We couldn’t find a thing. Walked around about an hour trying to find our hotel, only problem was the we were looking in the wrong side of town. But since we’re so proud we didn’t have a map, I mean, we wouldn’t want to look like tourists. But since we really couldn’t find our hotel we went to the tourist information and asked. After that it was very easy to find =) And all of a sudden it wasn’t at all like Sheffield. We also asked how to get to the arena… and we had to take the bus It really was too far away to walk. Anyways, we went to our hotel and when we checked in the receptionist told us that the MacDonald Bros was staying at the same hotel. Was very surprised that she told us! A little while later when we were walking around town I told Lisa how funny it would be if MacDonald Bros had a signing at HMV. About 2sec later we saw a few people walking out from HMV with autographs. So we walked in and ofcourse the MacDonald Bros had a signing, random! Didn’t find Westlifes hotel in Aberdeen either (suckiness!) so we went to the arena instead. Saw when Kian arrived but can’t say that it was very exciting. The arena was just as bad (or maybe even worse) as SECC. Some of the seats was outside of the actuall room where the concert was… if that’s possible… anyway it was weird! And we were supposed to have front row but instead we had 2nd since we had all dissabled people infront of us. I really didn’t mind but I still think the ticket should’ve said 2nd row and not 1st! This concert was the best ever, but I don’t think the boys were too happy about it. Both Shane and Mark had some problems with their microphones. I couldn’t really hear it but they talked to Grubby a few times so I guess there must have been something. But the fun parts was that Kian fell in the medley, Shane forgot the lyrics in You Raise Me Up. Not to mention the intro to World Of Our Own. It was a total mess! I’m not really sure what happened but Nicky didn’t do the same dance as the others and the band didn’t play what the lads thought they were playing when they started danceing. All 4 of them saw our flag and Shane laughed at us in Picture of you, very funny =) But the best thing was that the absolute last thing that happned was that both Nicky and Mark put their thumbs up for us =)
