Yesterday I went to see the Peas in Venice at the Heineken Jammin Festival :D I think this blog is gonna be a long blog again, like the concert in Milan but anyway, if you want to, read it all and leave a comment thaaanks :)
ARRIVING IN VENICE
Soooo I remember when I read that BEP were gonna perform in Venice I was like "WOAAHH!!" and I was jumping here and there and I was so excited, even more than when I read about the concert in Milan...anyway, I had to fight a lot to see them there, 1st because Venice is really far from where I live and 2nd because I was gonna see them in Milan, already. Anyway, finally I won and we planned to go to our relatives who lives there in Venice... we left on the 3rd and I met all those peple I've never seen before that day....
On the 5th we left and went to that park that was pretty near. But my brother wasn't that quick and it was already 8 am and we were on the way to the park and I was in a kind of crysis because I wanted to stand there earlier (all the people told me to pay attention, and run as fast as I could cause that's a HUGE park, it's impossible to be in 1st row and bla bla blaa) so I was afraid of that...but when we went there there weren't many ppl...doors should have been opened at 10 am but the day before there has been a strong wind and a tempest so they canceled the concert of the 4th of July and that morning (5th July) they had to clean everything, the stage and they opened them at 3 pm O.O we waited the whole time standing, with that heat that suffocated you... We all kept on teasing those guys who open the doors and finally they were sick of us and opened the gates... after "the tickets being seen" I started to ruuuun cause I thought the stage was near...but it wasn't! I kept on not to see it and it was like "c'mooon stage come closeeerr". The truth was that the stage was like 2 km's far from where we were waiting. So then I was fed up with that cause it was so hot and i couldnt run more, so I walked a bit and then run, then walk... Anyway I've been able to get the braceleeet!! Woaahh!! I was in the nearest part of the stage woohooo!! When I entered that part of the park it was crazy because there were already many people, in first row...but no one of them took the best place, (first row in front of the catwalk) lol it was the only place left and I was like "thank you!" so i couldn't imagine I was in first row O.O they told me it's impossible to be in 1st row in those festivals because there are always many people, but I've always thought that some one MUST be in first row! haha so I was IN THE FIRST ROW!!! OMG OMG OMG I sent a text to Katy lol and also to my brother who told me "we can also go later, you wont be in the first rows anyway" and I was like "wtf of thought have you got??" so I sent him "1st row!! see?? see??" and since I was red cause if the huge run I sat and thought "I won't stand up from here till the concert starts" It was so damn hot and I was dying haha but it was worth it...
After my aunt and my cousin sat we stood up again and hanged out in the huge park... We were sooo hot and it kept on being hot till 5 pm O.O anyway they sold a few t-shirts of BEP and I bought the Fergie one I didnt buy at their concert in Milan. Finally the concert started at 4.10 pm and it was the winner of HJF contest. Then there was an italian singer I HATE but fortunately it was only for half an hour..then Club Dogo went onstage. They're an italian group that rocks ( a bit xD) and my brothers love that group and also met the singers. And it was fun because when they were playing I wasn't gonna wave and jump and "put my hands up" at all. and after they sang a few songs they said smth that I can translat in English like "Thanks to everyone, even those ppl who don't care a fuck about Club Dogo" and I was like "oops! I think that's to me!" cause I was in front of them lol anyway my brothers would have been excited about them and I didnt care about them and if that group knew I'm my bro's sister (lol) we're the opposite. Then Pharrel performed and there were 2 girls behind me who were screaming as hell :P and after him Cypress Hill. I liked them, but in the middle of the performing I started to have a look to all the huge park,and when I looked at the stage, there were George and Bobby!! OMG! They were soo cutee and Bobby was recording Cypress Hill. And when almost everyone was looking at the guys performing I was the only one who was looking at my right, staring at George & Bobby :D Aaahh!!
FINALLY BLACK EYED PEAS!
After Cypress Hill performed there was a pretty long "pause" till the Peas... and finally there were more people! During this time I got in fight with those stooopid photographs who stood in front of ME, just to take pix at the stage (that was empty). So I said loud to my aunt "I cant see anything, are they gonna stay here the whole time?!?!" and they said "we're doing our work" and I was like "yes but don't hide me! I paid for the tickets I wanna see something!" but they stayed there till the first 2 songs (already a lot) So at 9.30 pm the music started and I felt smth strange...I was saying "c'mon let's start! Why dont they start? Pleasee" and all us with some more ppl were shouting "black eyed peas! Black eyed peas!" and stuff.... I just wanted them to appear on stage cause in Milan I was in the circle so I couldnt see them very near. You know that kind of anxiety that you have before exams or smth? Well, I was with that during that time, I was too excited. When the music started I shouted but I couldnt see well cause of those stupid photographers. But when they appeared I was like "OMG OMG OMG !!! AAAHHHH!!!" and I started to scream soo much!!! there was a photographer just in front of me and as I was sick of him and I pushed him away and then he realized that he couldnt do good pix with me waving on the back so he left and when I saw Will and Fergie I started to cry and cry and cry and I couldnt stop I was just screaming and crying, nothing else, i wanted to scream an "I love you" but I couldnt because I couldnt say anything but "aaahhh!!!" They were amazing!!! they started with RTB & Let's Get It Started and it was craazy everyone jumping and I was even crazier! After it finished I was sweating as hell and I kept on crying.
I can't remember in which part of the show but Apl came closer to us and when he were looking at all the people in first row and when he saw me crying he stopped and smiled =) That made me so happy, his was the most beautiful smile I've ever received. Apl's soooo sweet =) he sang looking at me and I was going crazier than ever I was just screaming every word he said and omg I'd love to see a video fo me there lol. After a few songs Apl took his sunglasses off and looked at the first row again and he smiled at me and sang again. So I sent him kisses and idk, he did a strange expression, he seemed to be thinking "you're enjoying the concert, uh?" and smiled again =))))) I was the happiest person alive. I know it's just a smile and some people received more than a simple smile from them, but it was just the 1st time seeing them really closer even if I've been a fan since 2005 and I needed to scream a lot. I've always loved Apl's dancing and when he started to dance a bit I jumped and screamed again and he saw me and did "yes" with his head and smiled again =) One of the reasons why I love Apl so much is that he's always smiling and really really sweet <3 At the middle of the concert I stopped crying xD I thougth I looked like a monster because I looked like a porcupine, cause of the heat, my hair was a shit and crying, I accidentally took off the make up and bleeaah. It was really amazing, I had sooo much fun and I still have all the images of Apl simling at me and if I'm not wrong Will winked at someone idk if it's me or my cousin, anyway woaahh =) At the 3rd song or smth, when Taboo was closer to us, I was staring at him but I had a look also to Will, who was a bit farther and he was looking at me, I think...still if I'm not wrong =p But I was still crying and I wanted him to notice him a lil bit but if he didnt look at me that time, he didn't for the whole concert. But I think he did anyway haha I was thinking "Gosh I love you so much" =') I'm in love with the Peas. My crying was a true crying and I started when Will & Ferg came on stage. They're too huge, too amazing, too big to me!! I love them more than anything <333
When IGAF started I was like "noooo" cause I knew it was the last song =( I was enjoying that concert sooo much and I didnt want it to finish at all!! But with a few parts like Will's DJ set, Where Is The Love, IGAF was one of the coolest part of the concert. After it, they left and I was like "nooo come hereeeee". Soo when it finished we left... I tried to meet them but those guys from there said there was no way to meet them (yes, how not) so as I looked bad I didn't even try and that's what I regret most now but I'm sure this is not the last time I'll see them on the contrary, it's one of the first times soo the next time I wanna meet them :) I went back home, shower, and then we stayed awake till late thinking about the concert =)
I love the Peas soooo muuchh!!!! I wish I could have seen one of their old concerts, at least once... lol idk why.... but really even if I joined Bep.com & Dipdive so late, last year, I've been a true fan since 2005 and during all these years i've learnt more reasons to love them. They're just amazing and I have no words <3
I hope they'll be back to Italy soon, I miss them so much.... but now it's South America's turn ;)
I LOVE YOU GUYS! THANKS FOR THE 2 WONDERFUL NIGHTS I SPENT IN MILAN AND IN VENICE! I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH AND FOREVER <3
