Postby obi » Fri Apr 03, 2009 9:46 am

Hey im new on here! well was on here years ago but thought id give it another go!!

saw the lads last night for the first time in aages, been to about 4 gigs so far, absolutly amazing!! the guys never fail to amaze and blow me away! was right up the fooking front! the new stuff was amazing live, loved when they played Tongue and Pinball machine too, was such an electric gig, just wondering if anyone else was der! i was the tall one at front wi the spikey hair (dancing like a loon!)

met all the crew after too, didnt think theyd be down but was great to see them again! cant believe Paul remembered me! Dave is such a funny fucker!!

was wondering if anyone else on here was at the gig too?? was a bit aprehinsive about the Nerve Centre as it is a SWEAT BOX (dave laughed at this! :P) but the atmosphere was electric..as usual!! last time i saw them was in the Point many moons ago and i was not disappointed last night!!
Paul must think im a maniac, kept blabbering on and chatting shite to him, poor thing!!

oh and b4 i go...was standing outside b4 the gig started and nearly collapsed when Paul walked past me with what looked like a chinese takeaway in his hand! was havin a smoke at the time and just stood der wi me mouth gaping like an eejit!! *shame!*

i cant stop smiling!!!!!!!!!!!!

:P

I was at the Derry gig too! Just got home to the States last night, hence the late entry. And you two are right, it was phenomenal! It was amazing to be right there, maybe 5 steps away watching them. They sounded fantastic and looked fantastic, and were completely cool with the fans afterwards. It was pretty dang crowded in there, but with the way I was jumping around like a monkey on acid, I seemed to clear a space for myself quite nicely. :shock:

My fiancee and I were about three rows back from stage on Dave's side. I was the completely blotto redhead, and Steve was the tall skinny guy with the camera. We got a ton of pics and three videos, so I'll get them up on here in the next couple of days.

We were outside talking to Dave for quite awhile (surprise, surprise). He was very, very cool about it. I was quite drunk, and managed to make a complete silly groupie of myself. (Things are rather hazy for me, to be honest. We'd been at Sandino's from about 5:30 - 8:30ish.) I am completely embarassed! I even gave him a rose one of the flower vendors were selling!

I'm going to need to color my hair and go incognito when I see them in concert again I think! :oops:

He said it was sweet of me. Unfortunately, the rose was bought and given to me by my fiancee! :oops: Oh well. Had I been there solo, I might have thrown my shirt at him, so I it could have been worse...

:D You gave Dave a rose? That's so sweet! Was your Steve as drunk as you? - Then he might not remember buying you the rose, and you'd get off scot free... unless Steve has photographic evidence. Gee, now I'm hoping that Steve took some photos of you giving the rose to Dave! :lol: :wink:

Steve took TONS of pictures. (I'm trying to wait very patiently for him to get them to me, but my nice is fading.) And he was not even near the shape I was in. Along with all the photographic evidence, he kindly reminded me of all my smooth moves from the night before. Not only did I give Dave the flower, but I also pulled a drunken "I love you man" :oops: I actually told Dave I loved him! Then I looked at Steve right away and said "I love you too, but he's my favorite musician!" I can't believe it! What a dip I am! When we were all saying goodbye, Dave turned and said "Thanks for the flower, Steve".

Sigh....
