FINALLY... I'm able to write about the DIR EN GREY concert, which was last month and also a little bit about my journey. Maybe you wonder why I took such a long time to write this report, but the last weeks I felt really bad and sick and wasn't able to sit a long time, so it was not possible to write it before. I'm sorry. (;_;) I'm still not healthy, but I feel much better than the last weeks and so~ I try to write something about the concert, now. (^-^'')
Maybe some of you know it, but DIR EN GREY is my absolutly favorite band! I was very young as I listend their music for the first time and it was love at first sight! The music inspires me so much and this band means a lot to me. I still love their old songs and also enjoy their new works as well. Since 2006, I went to 5 concerts by DIR EN GREY (2006-cologne/2007-munich/2009-saarbrueken&berlin/2011-berlin) and the 6th one was on the 11th june 2013!
I woke up early after having a very bad night. I couldn't sleep well, so I slept only 3 hours and were still damn tired in the morning! I meet my friends on the Heidelberg mainstation, but we didn't took the train... we took a bus! First we bought some breakfast from Mc Donalds and a few minutes after it, the bus came and we could start our jouney.
tired me (XD)
Arround 1pm, we arrived near to the LANXESS arena. After it rains on our journey, cologne was hot and sunny. Really nice, since my hometown was full of rain, the whole past weeks.
bye bye bus
We went to a train-station and drove to the main-station of cologne. I bougt some postcards for my japanese penpals and we visit the Dom. I've been 5 times in cologne yet, but I never saw the Dom from inside. (XD) But on this day the Dom was open, so we could take a look inside and I made some (blurry) photos.
the doors are so beautiful
beautiful Dom... i love it
The Dom is wonderful. I'm not christian or religious, but old churches are so beautiful and I love to visit them, just like a tourist. (XD) Do you like such places?
But we didn't spend a lot of time there, because we wanted to be early at the Live Music Hall. So, after a little walk inside of the Dom, we went to the main-station and took the train to the Live Music Hall.
I don't like to wait infront of the concert hall, because it's boring and uncomfy and I just hate to wait! (XD) But this time it was okay. We talked to some people and I met my dear Svenja for the first time... SHE IS SO CUTE!!! Here are some photos...
Alex made them, because I left my camera in Svenjas car
chibi Die is always with me
"OMG!!! DIE IS HERE!!!"
I don't need VIP to make a photo with Die (XD)
The inlet was on time and without any bigger problems. Like always, I took a place infront of Die and had to wait again. (XD)
I didn't made any photos from the concert, so I will show you some from Getaddicted... pls visit their HP to check the whole gallery.
For me, the concert was very good. I know, many people are not satisfied with the concert, because of some reasons, but I had a really nice time there. DIR EN GREY are really special for me and I had a very good place at the 2-3rd row infront of Die and could see the whole stage very well. They played a lot of my favorite songs and gave me special feelings but as I noticed the first notes of THE FINAL, all came over me and I totally start crying. This was so strange, because I sang the whole song while I cried, but this moment was so deep and special for me and thinking of it, still give me a shiver.
I don't know but I think the concert was a little short. I really don't know the exactly time, but for me it seemed so. Sorry if I'm wrong. Anyway.. it was a wonderful concert and I loved the songs and the band and they looked so good!!!*fangirly mode*
After the concert, I went to the booth to buy some merchandise. I've bought one T-shirt, the totebag, the hoodie and the wristband and spend A LOT of money for it. (XD) And the seller-guy did a mistake... he gave everything but not the T-shirt, but took the money for it. So I came back and asked him and after he looked a bit skeptical, he gave me my T-shirt! YAY! (^o^)
I was really fast with buying my stuff and had to wait for my friends, but it was okay because I saw an old friend of me and we talked a little bit. Later we went outside and for some reasons, we left the place really fast. First we picked up the car of Svenja and drove to the Burger King to eat something. This was a really good idea! I was hungry and it was good to relax a bit before driving home. We also had a lot of fun there and made some silly jokes. (Sorry to everyone who was next to us.. XD)
Alex made a photo of this funny poster >>Avoid crowds<< across from the concert hall (XD)
We had so much luck, because we don't had to wait a whole night on the main-station! Lovely Svenja drove us home, with her amazing car! She lives not at my hometown, but she came with us and stayed the night here. This was so cute and I'm still thankful for this. She also gave me some little gifts... (;/////;) I will show them in one of my next entries with the tour goods together.
I was damn tired as we arrived, so I only wanted to hug my pillow! *ha ha* We talked just a little bit and went to bed, really fast. On the next day, Svenja drove home. (;_;) I hope we will meet soon again. And of course I had my spacial 'after-concert depression', like always, but this time it was much harder because I felt sick and bad in many ways. (=_=)
BUT.. I had the best people with me, on this day! I could never imagine a better group for concerts, like this! Thank you guys!
So, this was my concert report. Finally I managed to write this entry and I hope you didn't got bored. *ha ha* I also hope you are not angry because I took such a looooooong time for it. I try to blog more, from now. Since I feel a little better, I also want to share some stuff with you. (^-^) So I hope you enjoyed this entry.... I would love to know your favorite band or musician, maybe you can tell me?
