Well I don’t know if anyone noticed really but I took a wee sabbatical from blogging for a bit just to rest my creative juices before era 3 and to just enjoy the QAL tour without having to worry about posting picture after picture and video after video. That’s the kind of shit that makes stanning feel like work and no thank you!! I needed a break!
BUT NOW I AM BACK. FEELING RESTED AND REPLENISHED. ARE YOU EXCITED?
I….I am gonna take that as a yes.
So many things have happened since I last blogged. Adam has ditched the blonde hair color. He grew more melvin, then he got rid of most of it, and then grew it back again. We found out he has a little bit of Tina Turner in him..
And that he’s the kind of guy who spits not swallows…
That he likes to sass his elders..
WE FOUND OUT THAT ADUFUS IS REAL!!!
But more importantly that Couchbert is the new Floorbert…
But most importantly we found out that whether he was playing a sold out Forum in LA or a sold out Madison Square Garden in NYC he
WAS A FUCKING CHAMPION IN A FUCKING GOLD GLITTERY CROWN!!!!!
Now a little more about Madison Square Garden. I was privileged enough to witness it in person and it was AMAZING. I had never truly understood why that venue was the Holy Grail of venues for a musical artist to play, and maybe I still don’t fully understand, but I have to say that from the minute I walked into the arena and down the stairs to my seat I was overcome with a massive indescribable feeling. You know when a place just has a presence? A history? That’s what I felt.
Or maybe what I felt was the Irish ale and two shots of Jameson I had at the Irish pub minutes earlier??
That’s my hand right there. Aren’t my chubby little fingers sexay? And that’s my phone…that’s where the MAGIC happens people!!!
Did I mention my seats were amazing?
I managed to end up in Glambert-ville with berts to the right and to the left and like half of my feed a stone throws away from me. It was so nice to put some faces to screen names and everyone I met was super nice. I am SO GLAD no one asked me for my glambert number like someone did to Loha in Las Vegas…LOL. I really don’t know how I would have handled that. Laughed in their face? Tell them it was 666 with crazy eyes and see how they reacted? Not sure.
I wish I could fully encapsulate with words how amazing the concert was but all I can think of to say is that listening to Youtube videos or a stream does NOT do justice to his voice, Brian’s guitar, Roger’s drumming, and any of the other elements that fused together to form such a perfect live experience. It is something that, while good on video, is UNREAL live, in the moment and surrounded by the energy from thousands of fans. There is just no comparison. I was fortunate enough to see one of the UK Hammersmith shows and while that was great, this show far surpassed that for me. The energy, the set, the production value, BRIAN’S NEVER ENDING GUITAR SOLO, the lady in front of me wearing Christmas garland as a scarf (I am on to you lady), the straight guy next to me dancing the standard dorky white man dance the whole show, the beach balls passing through the crowd. Amazing.
AND WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER SLAYED MY LIFE. LIKE IT KILLED ME DEAD AND THEN RESURRECTED ME AND THEN KILLED ME AGAIN THAT’S HOW AMAZING IT WAS.
It was so good that even the younger guy in front of me, who looked like he had maybe come with his parents and was kinda blase about the whole experience so far, whipped out his phone and started filming when Adam started slaying those notes. It gave me chills. SRSLY. And let’s not forget all of MSG (well I am gonna ignore the small section directly opposite me on the other side of the arena. I am going to assume their arms were simply tired from batting around all those beach balls.) doing the Radio Gaga clap like it should be done. It was beautiful.
Oh and I also got a pretty cool shirt.
Overall it was a SUPER AMAZING experience and it will be something I will fap over for all of eternity.
