The concert was beyond awesome! It was really a great show, I think the band liked the crowd and the country. Totally loved how the drums were sounding.
I indeed had the chance to meet Hugo, just a quick hello because the crowd was pushing everything and everyone, yeah the crowd was crazy even before the beginning of the show.
Stories, oh I have one; This one is about how awesome the fans of the dolls are. It all begins with me getting my ticket stolen (no, I shit you not, this happened to me 7-8 hours before the show) so I went down to buy another ticket ... but to my surprise tickets were sold out, SOLD OUT! So I began getting worried I even went to the bank to get some money in case I had to buy it outside of the venue to a reseller *. So I contacted THE AMAZING-SAUCE Hayley, and she quickly offered me a solution (again, I shit you not, she immediately helped me out
I OWE YOU BIG TIME
) after a few minutes I found myself with a ticket!
(This is a great example of how awesome people is!)
So the concert started, they opened with Cosmic Dancer, beautiful! Seriously great! I don't remember all the songs they played though I remember they played The Mouse And The Model (which Amanda mentioned was the second time they played that song live) ... video: http://www.youtube.com/v/3aYrsxRIxs8
The show was seriously unbelievable! And after it they promised they would sign everything and anything, and it was true, the show ended around 00:40 when I left it was 2:30-3:00 and they were still happy and signing stuff, it was awesome! They even signed the tattoo of a friend of mine, as far as I know she has now the signatures tattooed to her body!
The next day Amanda announced a Ninja Gig at a park. Lots of fans met there and the little gig began. I only got to record Two-Headed Boy:http://www.youtube.com/v/TPxdRVsta8Y
After the little gig they started signing things. In the middle of all this signing an earthquake started, at first Brian said something like "are you guys pushing everyone ..." we all looked at each other and everything was shaking, I laughed, it was such a bizarre moment. After this someone shouted "the Dresden Dolls are rocking out Mexico City ..." we all laughed
Great show, great music, great people!
*Resellers are very common in Mexico and they are known for taking advantage of desperate fans in need of a ticket.
