Yes, Amber, I understand you Same here - I just wanted to see them once in my hometown. And what happened? They came on stage, I heard first tunes - and I just had to cry, it was so fantastic, seein them back on stage after all this years! I was so impressed and full of great feelings that I decided to see - ehm - six more shows What a great tour!
Great photo Amber! Did you take that yourself? Were you that close? I can only imagine how exciting that was for you! It must've been a wonderful experience.
The photo is taken by one nice fan Junk Culture from the offic forum. But i really was in the front row!!!!!! It was in the second concert. I could see each Andy's and Paul's face expression. And Martin smiled time after time so kindly! OMG, i was so excited. After that i thought, happily, i wasn't in the front row in the first concert: i could lose conciousness because of too much emotions and impressions.
How many times have feelings vanished in your head? How many times must they be lost before they're said?
Wow, you were in the front row? You must've been so in awe of this amazing thing right before your eyes. I'd most likely lose consciousness too, after my heart stops beating. Really, the only band I've seen quite a few times is REM, which I just love to death, but when they play those first few songs, its just so unreal that they're right there, so absolutely breath-taking. It's such a powerful experience, and I very much hope to have that experience with OMD someday!
Oh Neil, thanks a bunch for posting those up!! Fantastic! What an amazing night that must have been! They look comfortable and 'with it', and all of them, especially Andy, seemed to really enjoy themselves. Thanks for sharing those!
I've pre warned the other half that something may be going down this year re OMD and depending on what that I may be away again. Haven't got that much holiday compared to last year so I need to be a bit choosy in what I do. But saying that, I do feel a sore throat coming on....
OK, now more than ever, I want to see these guys live. I read the reviews from the other thread, and just hearing these people talk about the shows took my breath away. What an unbelievable experience that must have been. The feeling I get from this music is indescribable, and having right there in your face, must be sheer ecstasy. If I ever hear of another show planned, I will move heaven and earth to get there.
Which brings me to a sad, serious question. With Andys wife being ill, I'm imagining any future gigs will be on hold a while. Correct?
