first of all LET ME JUST SAY THAT LAST NIGHT WAS FREAKING AMAZING . SERIOUSLY AMAAAAAAAAAAAZZZZZZZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN ALL THESE FEELS 1!! I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE LAST NIGHT WAS REAL!??!!? LIKE HOLY SHIT?!?!?!? SANDEUL TOOK 3 SELFIES WITH MY PHONE, I HIGH-FIVED THEM ALL (WITH BOTH HANDS) ANDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD I WAS 2ND ROW… WHAT THE HELL!??!?!?! THESE THINGS I ONLY HEAR ON THE INTERNET FOR OTHER PPEOPLE’S FAN ACCOUNTS.. BUT IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO ME.. I AM SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY SERIOUSLY SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY ;____;
OK. I WILL TRY MY BEST TO EXPLAIN EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED FROM THE START OF THE DAY. (the performances that they did may not be in order too)
[WARNING – SUPER LONG FAN ACCOUNT AHEAD…]
Since the concert started at 7pm I got up at 10am (ish) and started to gather all the things I was taking to the concert. Once I did that I typed up my fan latter to B1A4 and attempted to print it (along with photos) but my printer was being retarded and wouldn’t print at all – so I had to remove the photos and print on my other printer.
Last night I also made my own t-shirt; I bought a blank one from kmart costing $4 - a quarter of the price of the kpop store in the city.
At 1pm we left the house to pick up my friends; Layla & Maddy – who we got VIP tickets for. The drive there was at first quiet, but we did mention how we just ‘can not believe this is happening’, later on we were also talking about our experiences in China (which was funny and interesting XD).
Roughly 2:10 pm we arrived at Crown Casino car park, I mentioned how ‘epic it would be if we saw them walking in the casino’s shops’ – it didn’t happen though. Maddy explained to me their plan that we will do at some point during the concert; take a selfie with B1A4 in it. We didn’t get to do this unfortunately D: but we all got selfies on Sandeul on our phones/polaroid camera LOL.
We then walked through the city (25minute walk from crown) [on the way I looked at the location and said how it looks like the one where baro updated his instagram] to the kpop store – my mum really wanted to go; so she could get some wristbands. It was quite busy, I looked at all the albums and basically drooled (not really but you know LOL), I saw VIXX’s photobook overseas and that was just ridiculously priced. Anyway, I ended up buying 2 B1A4 wristbands for $1 each – my mum got 1 B1A4 one and then also a BIGBANG one… My friend Layla ended up buying B1A4’s ‘In the wind’ album – later on she opened it and got Gongchan’s photocard!!
We then walked to the bubble tea store – near China town – my friends had some and I didn’t try it xD ( I should really though sometime..) After waiting for the bubble tea we walked to Melbourne central to have a really early dinner /snack (it was only 3:30 LOL)to keep us going and not starve during the concert. We all had some Japanese food – which was really delicious *__* Before leaving the shops though, we had a quick stop and smiggle and drew on their pieces of paper - my message/drawing:
About 4:40 we got to the venue much quicker than expected - with Maddy leading the way - we saw some fans on the stairs sitting down. I took a photo and then we all decided to get a drink at Starbucks; since we had 40-50 minutes to kill before officially queing. Whilst my mum was ordering a hot chocolate, I went on twitter to see if there were any photos of B1A4 in the city - there was this one photo of them near federation square; but as it turns out it was taken the other day when they arrived.
——— CONCERT LOCATION ———
We then headed back to the concert location and started to que.
I also handed my letter to one of the staff members to give to B1A4 >.< Not so long after that, my mum spotted this lady who we met at the airport (back in May) whilst trying to welcome B.A.P - but failed. She talked to my mum and explained how they got VIP tickets, and she’s here because one of her friends are a huge fan. The lady then started talking about the light stick - and my mum must have mentioned mine because she offered to do the strap on the light stick!!! Before leaving the house I tried ever so hard to put the string through the hole - but it was impossible @_@ LOL Even the lady had a hard time getting it in, but eventually did it !!
Not so long after, Maddy spotted the girl (who I heard about on twitter) giving out Sandeul banners to fans!! I was like omgomgomg. So my mum and I went down there and grabbed 2 banners each - 1 for each of my friends. The girl was very polite and bowed :3
We also saw someone else handing out photos of B1A4 - which we were unable to get because they were further up and in another line.
When we were on the stairs waiting for them to open the doors - the security guards/staff yelled out a few times saying ‘someone lost their L driver’s license’, ‘where’s the girl who was handing out the banners’ and then they finally said ‘do not run whilst going in’. As they were announcing this, the fans were really good and went absolutely dead quiet so everyone could hear XD They finally opened the door at 6:15 and then directed us to certain doors (after scanning our tickets), we then - once again had to wait for another section to be opened.
My mum and friends sat on the chairs whilst I kept standing (not that I could sit down anyways; not enough room lOL) - not wanting to lose our spot; Maddy kept saying ‘are you ready Deanna’ and I’d keep saying ‘no’ LOL. And then she hummed to a song saying that this is her ‘excitement jam’ or something LOLOLOLOL.
AND THEN AFTER A 2-5 MINUTE WAIT THEY ANNOUNCED SOMETHING ALONGS THE LINE OF ‘LADIES AND GENTLE - TONIGHTS PERFORMANCE IS B1A4’S ROADTRIP’ I FREAKED OUT SO MUCH MORE ASDLKSJADLADJALKDASLKDJSALDJSALDSAJDLASKDJASKDASLDKJASDLASDJKLADK
So we started walking down to the stage and a man checked our tickets, a lady then guided us to where to sit and I was serioysly FREAking OUT AT HOW BLOODY CLOSE WE WERE!!
I WAS PICTURING THE THEATRE’S SEATS NOT THAT CLOSE TO THE STAGE AND ON A BIT OF AN ANGLE??? BUT INSTEAD THE SEATS WERESO CLOSE. IT DIDN’T EVEN MATTER THAT WE WEREN’T 1ST ROW - WE COULD SEE THEM CLEARLY AND THEY COULD SEE US CLEARLY TOO!!!!!!!!!! ASLDJKASDLKSAJDLAJDK;ALDKSA;DKSA;DKLSAKDSADL;SADK;ASD THERE WERE ABOUT 30MINUTES TO GO AND I TOOK SOME PHOTOS AROUND THE VENUE AND UPLOADED IT ON INSTAGRAM/TWITTER, my friends did that too xD. There were even some theatre staff walking up and down selling ice creams LOL.
(more and more people came as the time was close - the whole back was full!!!)
I kept saying over and over to my mum and friends that I could not believe HOW CLOSE WE WERE AND HOW IT WAS HAPPENING TODAY!!! I COULD NOT GET MY HEAD AROUND THE FACT THAT WE WERE GOING TO SEE THEM IN REAL LIFE. NOT ON THE COMPUTER SCREEN. BUT R-E-A-L-L-I-F-E O__O!!?!?!?!?!?!? Whilst waiting they were playing songs!!! They played most of the title tracks and my favourite song right now - Super Sonic -just before the concert started. IT SOUNDED SO EPIC REALLY LOUD!!!!!! OMG… when we were sitting down we could see the band in the background setting up - there were guitarists and drum players. Right before the concert started though they changed from the music and put on a video promoting South Korea. Everyone basically got all excited and screamed - only to be disappointed LOL I said to Layla how that was exactly what happened with B.A.P - they played the same video 3 times before the actual concert started LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
And my friend Maddy - every time it would get closer to the concert starting - she’d be like ‘Deannaaaa~~~ 5 more minutes!!! … Deanna~~~ 1 minute! 30 seconds… 10seconds..(etc)’ LOL My heart was starting to beat faster and faster…..
When the concert offically started (at 7:10pm), they played a VCR of an introduction of all the members!!!! They were all so cute on it omfg. I literally screamed when they showed each of the members. When they first walked on stage I really couldn’t keep calm and believe this was hAPPNENING OMG. I screamed so much LMAO. (ANd basically in every fancam of mine you can hear either my terrible singing or high pitched screams XD.) ALL OF THE MEMBERS SAW ME AT LEAST ONCE DURING THIS MOMENT I SWEAR OMG. I SMILING AND WAVING MY LIGHT STICK LIKE CRAZY AND COULD NOT KEEP CALM!!! MY HANDS WERE SHAKING SO MUCH AS WELL OMFG. It was just so awesome.. I recorded this - please don’t be picky on the quality of the video, I did originally want it to be perfect - but I didn’t want to miss half of the concert looking through my phone to make sure everything was perfect…[….]
They then performed BEAUTIFUL TARGET NEXT!!!! THIS SONG IS ALSO ONE OF MY FAVS!!!! TOWARDS THE END OF THIS SONG THEY DID THEIR FAMOUS BEAN SPROUT DANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS WAS JUST TOO CUTE!!! -iliterallyscreamedsomuchduringthispartholycrapLOL-
When they were performing those 2 songs, I sang/screamed so much that my throat was really dry @_@ Imagine how B1A4 would feel then; since they have to sing AND dance omg
They had a quick break, and introduced themselves, saying it was their first time coming here. Their English was really adorable omfg… they even had a translator there too!!! I’m pretty sure after they had their small introduction, Baro said something along the lines of (which I couldn’t exactly catch) ‘goodbye’ and I shook my head AND HE SPOTTED ME AND SORTA LIKE POUTED/GAVE ME A CONFUSED FACE OR SOMETHING AND IM LIKE OHMYGOD AND SCREAMED LOL.
he then was like ‘goodnight?’ and everyone else (just like me) thought his english was adorbs, he then said that they were going to perform 'romantic' songs *__* AT THE CHORUS OF THIS PERFORMANCE I LITERALLY DIED. *cough* they all put their hands down past their *cough* *wink wink* *cough* you know what I mean….Sandeul was in the middle and was basically looking at me and I’m like holy freeeeeeeeeaking crap i can’t even asdklad;lakdsa;dka’dlsa’dlas’dsla’dl’;. Baro didn’t even help either ofmg. IN FACT. ALL OF THEM DIDN’T!! GDI B1A4.
they then showed another VCR (whilst the members were having a break) and it footage of them being ‘backstage’; preparing to come back out. I thought this was a really nice touch >.<
With tried to walk - they performed an accoustic version of this (I think right before they sang knocking on heaven’s door btw I can’t believe they sang that :O an English song/??? they all sang it so beautifully too. Before they performed it , Jinyoung was like ‘if you know this song, please sing together - and everyone did just that) JINYOUNG WAS PLAYING THE GUITAR!!!!!!!!! ALL OF B1A4 SERIOUSLY LOOKED LIKE ANGELS IN THEIR WHITE GEAR AND WITH THE LIGHTS SHINING ON THEM OMG…
Sooner or later, they performed lonely and omfg that was just literally so EPIC!!! THEY ALL THEIR SCARVES AND EVERYTHING!!! I really thought that they would throw their scarves to the crowd but they didn’t… gdi LOL
Once again, there was another VCR which went for 3-5 minutes and it showed all of the members practicing their dance moves for the concert and the members being all cute/dorky together. Throughout this VCR I’m pretty sure they had text every now and then, and at the last one there was this sentence that everyone laughed at but then went quiet - since it didn’t make sense at all LOL. It was like ‘everything is up’ or something??? it was something that included ‘up’ at the end of it >_> <_<. that was really funny though - the english mistakes ahahahah so adorable.
At one point there was a VCR of Baro calling someone… B1A4 then came out with a fresh set of clothes on AND PULLED 1 LUCKY AS FAN ONTO STAGE AND MADE HER SIT DOWN. ALL OF THE MEMBERS WERE SURROUNDING HER SO CLOSELY AND SANG TO HER. ONE OF THE MEMBERS EVEN BACK HUGGED HER OMFG….. BARO EVEN DID BODY ROLLS NEAR HER?!!??! HOW DID SHE EVEN SURVIVE LIKE HOYL CRAP.. I’D BE SITTING THERE SCREAMING!!!!! GONGCHAN EVEN GAVE HER A BEAR TOO OMG….
their performances of Solo Day and What’s Happening got me so pumped!!! The members looked like they were really enjoying themselves too ;saldksa;dslad\as;dl’sald’adlsa’dskad;slakd;
when they said that ‘this was their last song’ I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ;————; AND IT WASN’T EVEN LIKE THAT MUCH INTO AN HOUR. the lights dimmed, and all of the fans -including me, were shouting/chanting B1A4 and Encore AND Baro was like ‘I can’t hear you and/or do you want more (or something???) and everyone - screamed YES!!- Then they all came out again!!! LSDJKFKLDJLDKDJAL (Turns out it wasn’t their last song… >_> Baro be lieing to us LOL) THEY PERFORMED A SONG OR 2 and then they were like ‘give it up for the band’ and the band did this epic cover of a rock song. B1A4 were all rocking out to it - especially Sandeul LOL.
Towards the end - they got all of us to stand up and follow their dance moves. They were all so sweet and cute telling the moves step by step ;-;
Then they said ‘ready to do it by yourself’ and I was like shaking my head LOL. But they still went on and played the song ‘who am i’, I tried following the moves - but got confused at some points (i’m really not good with dance moves omg) - it was really hard because I was holding the light stick in one hand and the camera in the other LOL. This was so much fun though omg.. ;__; I’m pretty sure I recorded all of it (not too sure if it came out good or not xD) - I was jumping up and down too XD
We then tried sitting down and they were like ‘no no no get back up’ and i was like ohmygod LOL (I CAN;’T IM SO DEAD TIRED) - one of the fans from idk where in the back came barging in and ran to the front (to highfive them)… she didn’t even get caught by security either.. omg..-
Before they performed ‘baby goodnight’ Baro was telling the audience to say ‘night’ whenever he said ‘good’ this was so cool ;-;.
During this song/the song after, Gongchan put a towel around Sandeul’s head LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL THIS WAS JUST TOO FUNNY OMFG. AND THEN JINYOUNG JOINED IN ON IT TOO LLOLOLOLOLOL
AND THEN AT SOME POINT SANDEUL THREW HIS TOWEL INTO THE AUDIENCE AND MADDY WAS LITERALLY 5CM’S AWAY FROM GETTING IT OMG…. ;SLKD;SADKA;DSLKAD;SKAD;DKS;ADKA; I THINK BARO(?) ENDED UP THROWING HIS TOO - BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF US. HE ALSO THREW A PINK THINK INTO THE AUDIENCE (WHICH APPARENTLY WAS A LIGHT STICK?)…about halfway (?) through’you are my girl’ GONGCHAN CAME RUNNING OUT WITH A CAMERA ON A STICK!!!! HE WAS RECORDING ALL OF US OMFGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!
i WAS WAVING SO MUCH WHEN HE DID THAT!!! (I REALLY CAN’T WAIT TO SEE US ON WHATEVER VIDEO/DVD THEY PUT US ON XD) WHEN ‘In the wind’ CAME ON they started taking people’s phones/polaroid cameras in the front row and taking selfies of themselves and/or with the BANA’s themselves .. they even high fived all of the people in front row ;-; oh my.. GOD. THEY WERE SO LUCKY!!!!!!! I WANTED THAT HAPPEN TO ME TOO ;-; AND… …. HOLY FREAKING JESUS… IT DID…. IT DID!!?!?!?!!?
I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE IT BUT OMFG!! SANDEUL CAME OVER, RIGHT? HE WAS TAKING SELFIES ON A PHONE AND I WAS LIKE ‘SHOULD I OR SHOULD I NOT TRY AND GET ONE’ AND SO I STRETCHED MY HAND OVER, SANDEUL SPOTTED ME AND HE TOOK MY PHONE AND I JUST COMPLETELY LOST IT. I WAS SCREAMING SO MUCH OMFG… MY BIAS… MY BIAS.. MY BIAS FROM B1A4 WAS TAKING SELFIES ON MY VERY OWN PHONE…. SADLJDSALADSDSAK;LDASLDAS;KDASLKDAS;KLADSKDK;LSDASDJS;DKJSA;DSALDKAS;DSAL;DKA;SDLKEWQEUWEOIDJKSLADAJJAKLDJALDKJ:lkj!!!!
WHEN HE TOOK IT THOUGH… I WAS VERY SCARED THAT HE WOULDN’T KNOW HOW TO TURN THE SELFIE MODE ON - BECAUSE MY PHONE’S CAMERA WAS NORMAL … BUT AFTER ABOUT 30 SECONDS OF HOLDING IT HE TOOK SOME AND HE GAVE IT BACK TO ME… HE LOOKED ME IN THE EYE AND I THINK (I THINK???) I SAID THANK YOU - AND OFC I HAD THE HUGEST SMILE ON MY FACE EVER- AND BECAUSE I LEANED OVER TO HIM FOR HIM TO TAKE A PHOTO
HE ALSO GRABBED MY 2 OTHER FRIENDS PHONE + POLAROID CAMERA AND TOOK SELFIES WITH IT TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I SCREAMED SO MUCH AND LOOKED TO MY MUM SAYING ‘MY BIAS.. MY BIAS.. MY FREAKING BIAS JUST TOOK A SELFIE ON MY PHONE…
' I LOOKED AT THE SELFIE AND NOTICED IT WASN'T JUST ONE.. BUT IT WAS 3!!!!!!!!!!! HE HAD TAKEN 3 SELFIES ON MY PHONE!! OMFG~!!!! MY FRIEND MADDY EVEN GOT A PHOTO OF HIM USING MY PHONE TO TAKE SELFIES!!! ASKDLSJDKDJALDSKA;DSLKD;SALDK;A
CNU THEN CAME OVER NEAR US, I TRIED LEANING OVER (LIKE WITH SANDEUL) BUT HE COMPLETELY IGNORED ME…. .__. oh well.. LOL AT LEAST I GOT MY BIAS TO TAKE MY PHONE /SCREAMS/
I then tried to make a heart shape using my hands - but failed because of my phone…I put my phone down and made a heart shape for a good 2 minutes and not one member really did a heart back >.> <.<
but they did see me and smile -thankgod- this made me die on the inside btw.. omfg.. and at some point MY FRIEND LAYLA WAS DOING A HEART AND THEN BARO FREAKING DID THE EYE TO EYE SIGNAL DIRECTLY TO HER!! I SQUEALED SO MUCH FOR HER OMG… I SWEAR BARO WAS REALLY THE FANSERVICE KING OF THE GROUP!! HE’S SO ADORABLE AND JUST I CAN’T OMG.
they then performed their final song for the night - ‘if - T___T this was so so so so so so touching.. at the end they were all bowing.. and I just can’t.. really can’t.. they bowed several times, firstly on my right of the stage, the left and lastly in the middle :((((((((((( they promised that they would come to Melbourne again…
I really can’t wait for them to come back.. omg…. as;ldkas;dlksa;daksdsa’dka
as soon as the concert ended… i straight away turned to my mum and - i quote - said ‘HOLY SHIT’ I REALLY COULD NOT BELIEVE SANDEUL TOOK MY FREAKING PHONE AND TOOK SELFIES…I COULDN’T EVEN BELIEVE I HAD JUST WITNESSED THEIR CONCERT.. IN REAL LIFE.. I WAS SO SOSOSOSOSOSOSO DONE WITH LIFE OMFG.
A member of JK ENT staff announced everyone but the VIP and golden ticket holders to stay behind for the high-touch event. i LITERALLY TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THE HIGHTOUCH AT THE STAGE LOL. I WAS TOO OVERWHELMED WITH WHAT SANDEUL DID OHMYGOD..
after about 10-15minutes of sitting around they finally announced us to start making our way to the exit of the theatre. my friends and I really doubted whether or not we would actually highfive them because a whole bunch of people on the other side of the room sat back down again >_> whilst we started heading towards the exit.. they must have been some media crew or something.. so lucky ;-; (i thought we’d hightouch them on the stage xD) whilst we were waiting we saw everyone packing up the stage :o
We also took some photos to kill the time. so many minutes later we began moving and were heading towards the exit….i had my phone in my hand (still trying to think of a way to film the highfive -only to be glared and told off by the security guard ‘no photography’ -__- I MEAN COME ON!!! IT’S NOT LIKE I’M GOING TO SELL THIS FOOTAGE OR ANYTHING. IT’S A ONCE IN A LIFE TIME THING AND YOU DON’T ALLOW ME TO FILM IT!!?!?!? UGH.
at the high-touch I first high fived (with both hands) [I think this was the order >_>] Sandeul, CNU, Jin Young, Gongchan and then Baro. THEY WERE ALL SO NICE.. OMFG…BUT.. I didn’t say anything.. WHHICH I SHOUDL HAVE OMFG .I TOTALLY BLANKED?!/!?!?!?! GDI GDI GDI GDI I ONLY SMILED -LIKE A FREAK- AND NODDED/BOWED SORTA..I CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT THE MEMBERS SAID BUT I DID REMEMBER WHAT BARO SAID - HE SAID ’ THANK YOU FOR COMING TO THE CONCERT’ - SCREAMS - ASLDKJADSJALDSJDLSAD
I then walked outside the area AND SCREAMED A BIT and wanted to take a photo from outside.. but the staff and security were like ‘keep moving’ -___- after all the fans had highfived them the b1a4 members walked up to the glass and were waving ;___; i tried to record but failed as i wasn’t fast enough - because i had instagram open and i tried ever so hard to get it off and open the damn camera… but was too late caz by the time I did so all the fans were blocking the view … ._. But I did catch a glimpse of Baro looking out and Gongchan did a heart!!!! SAKJLKDJSALKDASDJLDSJKAL
Unfortunately for my friend Layla, she got treated poorly during the high-touch event -by the Regent theatre staff- because she wasn’t wearing any shoes.. and so she ended up only highfiving 2 members (?)
And so afterwards we walked back to crown, however, just 10 or so metres away from the concert location; someone had formed ‘B1A4’ using leaves on a wall of water (which was clever).
After a fairly long walk along the river back to crown casino, we had a bathroom break - before we hit the road lOL. and I was ‘NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WE ARE GOING TO WASH AWAY THEIR HIGH-FIVES’ (LOL) so Maddy started to put her hands all over her face and we did that too LMAO.
We then got in the car to head back to my friends house to drop them off. In the car us 3 were talking about how amazing the concert was and were looking through the photos/videos we took. We spotted many derp photos that we caught LOL MY FRIEND LAYLA AND I EVEN HAVE A PHOTO WITH CNU DOING TOUNGUE ACTION AHAHAHAHA LKASDLKDL;KDA;DLAKD;D;DK;’
I ended up getting back home at 11:45 pm and was like ’holy mother of god what just happened’ . I went straight on the laptop and transferred all of my 340+ fancams/photos. Majority of the photos came out blurred and the fancams are shaky – but like I said I didn’t want to spend the whole time looking through my phone’s screen and holding it still to make sure the picture was perfect quality. And – I didn’t want to get caught by security either… since there was a no ‘camera’ rule… and I didn’t even get caught once.. LOL
About halfway through the concert my ears went deaf and they all sounded like chipmunks (just like B.A.P) LOL.. aish.. I also got a bit of ringing in my ears afterwards – but not as bad as the B.A.P one.
I really can’t believe I went to this concert.. it was just epic… beautiful… so memorable ;__;
their fan service was really pure gold… Baro has moved up on my bias list too omg… he’s competing with Sandeul LOL. All of the members – I know for sure – saw me at some point.
I did some hearts directed at any of the members and Jinyoung smiled at me /SCREAMS/
I will be uploading more fancams on myyoutube channel and also photos on here. Btw… here’s a video where Baro and I shared eye contact
P.S I knew I wasn’t insane for bringing three phones after all!! (my Samsung Galaxy S4, S2 & Brooklyn) HAH. MY FRIEND MADDY BROUGHT 2 S2’S + EXTRA BATTERY AND AN OLD CAMERA LOL.
