last night was unreal - the show was outstanding. highlights of the evening would first off have to be getting to upgrade our seats..when i got the tickets i could only pull seats in the 300s..but when we got to the venue you could wonder around wherever you like, nothing like back home where every possible gate is tight guarded.
so obviously, we tried our luck…and as we got down to the 70s, there on the end of a row were two free seats..it was fate…so we took our chances.
after being there a while and getting to know the people around us it turned out we were in the vip family and friends area..hence why not all the seats were taken.
we had very luckily and coincidently found ourselves having the best seats in the entire venue!
the set was very similar to the terminal 5 show, but what really made the difference was the atmosphere and the view we had of both the stage and the surround audience, it was epic.
i nearly fainted like a 14yr old beliber when i noticed arcade fire had come on to sing backing for North American Scum and also i unashamedly cried like a baby to All My Friends..
almost four hours later, after the emotional and ballon filled last song (New York I Love You) the show ended. and lcd soundsystem were no more…
but the night didn’t end there..in fact it just begun.
a friend from back home had the wonderful ways of being able to get me and terry onto the guestlist for the afterparty back at the tribeca grand hotel. so we went along, and wow was it grand. waiting in the queue to get in and i look to the right of me and who is it.. arcade fire!
we got into the place, and went down to the basement where the party was being held and it was without a doubt the single most best atmosphere i have ever been apart of. 2 many djs we’re playing with the loudest soundsystem in a tiny room to no more that maybe 100-200 people.
after a couple hours the hotel closed the party down (i’m in the process of uploading a video of the raucous now) and i left with the biggest grin.
after traveling across the world especially for this night i can be assured that it exceeded my explications ten fold and i had the best night of my life.
