What a weeekend we had…
Friday 8th April – I arrived at the hotel at 7.30pm and Katrina was able to find the hotel as well so she didn’t have to wander around Dublin until I arrived which saved us some time. So we checked into our room then and decided to go into town to get something to eat. Mc Donald’s it was. lol Not really healthy but you don’t really have any other option in the city centre at that time like.
After we went back to the hotel and got ready to go to the hotel and get a glance at Westlife which failed of course. We did see them but we had been told to stay away from them because they had “ a hard show”. Whatever! They have these new management now or whatever they are called. Not nice at all. Would have been so much easier if they would still have Malcom but anyway. Went back to the hotel and got some sleep as queuing was on the plan the next morning.
Saturday 9th April – I got up at 9.30am while Katrina was still sleeping as she had an exhausting day before that coming back from Liverpool. I went down to get some breakie and then got ready after. We left around 1pm and got to the O2 around 2pm. I thought it would be packed by that but luckily there was only around 14 people in front of us, so front row guaranteed.
We met 2 lovely girls in the queue who were queuing in front of us.
We got our wristbands ( which I still have of course lol) and got let in at 6.30pm on the button. I loved the way that only 20 people of us were let in first and then only the rest after! That way we didn’t have to run and got our front row Brilliant view. The staff in the O2 is hilarious. @macisback3 Thanks for entertaining us! lol Was great craic.
The show was amazing! Not only Westlife but also Wonderland. They went down to the front and signed stuff and gave photos. I finally got mine taken with Jodi!
Westlife came on stage very late this time but it was worth it. Completely different atmosphere when you are in front of the stage and not seated.
They took fans up on the stage that night. Randomly picked people out of the crowd. Sadly it wasn’t me. lol But it was nice to see the lucky ones on stage anyways!
The fireworks during the concert were really hot in front row! I thought my face is burning off. haha Every time something went off we all went back a step.
The only thing I didn’t like about the front row was, it is killing your neck at some stage. But I guess you have to live with that.
Tried to meet them after the show but the taxi driver drove some stupid way so that we have missed them.
Sunday 10th April – We checked out at around 12pm and Katrina drove back to Liverpool as she still has another week off and I drove back to Sligo. I was home by 2.30pm to take of my poor Dermi who has been sick that weekend. He is much better now though.
That was my exciting weekend!
