Harry Styles Live On Tour in Austin, Texas 10-11-17
I don’t even know how to begin to describe my experience of seeing Harry live in such a small, intimate setting. I guess I’ll try to summarize from the beginning.
Ashley and I got to the venue a little before 10 o’clock and waited 9 hours in line outside. Yes that’s right, NINE HOURS. We were like the first 200-300 people there. The line started in front of the venue then continued along the side (where we were) then proceeded to wrap around a whole block of a parking lot. It was insane. We chatted with 2 girls our age, a mom and her daughter and another mom saving a spot for her girls while we waited. Thank you to the Starbucks on the corner for allowing us to all pee and not buy anything. We were also able to buy merch while we waited which was a blessing. I can’t even tell you the amount of times that people in cars asked who we were waiting for. HARRY STYLES PEOPLE COME ON.
A little after 7 we were finally in the venue. Ashley and we’re like smack dab in the middle of the GA standing. We were definitely too old for this with our aching backs, knees and feet. But in the end it was all worth it. Muna started late but was a great opener. Then came Harry’s super extra pink cover thing on the stage. I could not have been standing closer to these people is what I thought. The lights dimmed, the music started, the curtain dropped, the crowd became super squished, and there her was right in front of us. Harry Styles wearing a pink and dragon custom Gucci suit. It’s too hot for that in Texas but he looked fabulous. He looked not real. He was so close I could see every detail and weird facial feature. His voice was just absolutely beautiful. We blew so many kisses and made fun of the crowd. Asked us how we were doing and if we were having a good time like obviously. He waved flags and some fur thing. Half the set consisted of him singing and playing the guitar and the other half running around like a maniac. HE SANG KIWI TWICE. TWICE I SAY. I about lost it when he played Woman. Water from his water bottle was thrown in true Harry Styles fashion. He would smile the most amazing smile and you could tell he was having an amazing time. It was definitely not a family show, wink wink. Austin will go down as one of the greatest shows.
And then it was over way to soon. None of us wanted to see him leave. Harry put on one hell of a performance. Despite the shoving for the first half of the show, GA was worth it. I literally never took my eyes off of Harry the whole show. I love him.
Isn’t it curious and extraordinary how these five guys can be part of amazing experiences that people will remember their whole life? It might be pretty awesome you can give people a smile when they think about that moment you were part of and you maybe didn’t even know.
Okay so my friend and I got regular vip tickets for this show. So we got to go into soundcheck, we got free merch, and we were quite close to the stage. So we entered soundcheck and there were about 250 girls in souncheck, all regular and ultimate vip. We were seated in the 5th row which was about 25-30 feet away from the stage. The band came out AND I FLIPPED THE FUCK OUT BECAUSE JOSH, JON, SANDY, AND DAN LIKE OH MY GOD. So they were just practicing and stuff and I was towards the end of the row, infront of jon so I was waving at him AND THEN HE SMILED AT ME AND I DIED OMG. The band practiced for about 15 minutes and then. THE BOYS CAME OUT AND IT WAS SO CRAZY. I was going mental and there were alot of people crying omg. Niall was wearing a snapback, Liam was wearing a captain america shirt, louis was wearing shorts, Harry was wearing a beanie, and Zayn was wearing a lose fitting shirt. As the were singing and stuff I was dramatically waving at Harry AND THEN HE SMILED AND WAVED AT ME AND I BASICALLY FLEW TO HEAVEN AND BACK. Ugh they are so much more beautiful and perfect in person. Their voices are like angels in person ok omg. They sang like 3 songs and did like a Q&A thing also. So after soundcheck ended we all got our free merchandise, which included a bag, poster, shirt, and buttons. So a couple hours later we entered the venue AND WE WERE IN ROW 4! OH MY GOD. We are towards the left side of the stage. The first opening act was this chick named Manika. She was alright. Then OLLY MURS CAME AND I HAD A HEARTATTACK ugh he is seriously such an amazing singer and his dance moves seriously made my life. I tried to get his attention but it didnt really work. Then about 20ish minutes later ONE DIRECTION CAME ON STAGE AND EVERYONE WAS GOING CRAZY IT WAS SO LOUD OMG. They were so close to us it was unreal. We had a poster that said “ZAYN, U RATCHET” and it had a derp picture of zayn. We got so many compliments on it. We held the poster up when zayn was in front of us and he just read it and stared at it for a few seconds. haha he had no idea what it ment probably. When Harry was close by I threw a pink bra at him. On the bra we put “u ratchet” and “double d, DO YOU LOVE ME NOW?” I threw it right in front of him and he just stared at it with a confused face. Then all the boys were reading/staring at it with a confused look. at this point i was dead mhm. then my friend blew up one of our beachballs and hit it towards the stage then harry kicked to the audience omg. when we threw the second beach ball liam took it and ran across the stage with it, IT WAS ADORABLE. During the last song the greatest thing happened… HARRY FUCKING STYLES WAVED AT ME AND THEN STARED AT ME FOR ABOUT 3 SECONDS BECAUSE I WAS FREAKING THE FUCK OUT. HOLY JESUS. Over all it was the greatest night of my life.
Okay this show was cool too they basically did the same thing. We had like no interaction with them though because we were in the upper balcony LOLOL. But before the concert we were waiting in line to go inside and everyone was running towards this gated area, which was where the back enterence was and their bus. I saw niall on a motorbike casually riding around on the side of the tour bus. after that we ran up to the top level of a parking garage next door and there was a bunch of girls up there. we all spotted zayn behind a bus (((probs smoking LOLLLL))) then he casually walked by and did a little sassy wave and we all went crazy. Yep basically the concert was fabu woohoo. The second greatest night of my life.
On my amazing soundcheck/concert seats, soundcheck (which included Liam’s bare butt;)) and the deal with Niall and Zayn being called rude which they were not at all and the concert and the ‘sticky situation’ at the end.
so i went to the Sao Paulo gig in the premium floor area 10/05 and 11/05 WOW it was so AMAZING.
(i will write the two days mixed bc i am tired and running with only 5 hours of sleep and can’t remember things well but i wil ltry to put everything)
Me and my friends we arrived at the stadium at 5am and there was already thousands of people, most of them camped since march 15th YEAH so we stayed on the line for 12 hours under the sun and the security guys wouldn’t let us go for a wee it’s sucked.
so we got pretty good seats, not the best, but i’m not complaining. we could recognize who was who on stage and we were pretty close to the middle stage. zayn and louis still waved at us <333
the concert was supposed to be from 5-7 pm. olly murs was supposed to open for us, but for some reason he didn’t, so the concert started around 5:20. they performed up all night first, which was awesome. we were all jumping up and down and singing along, and during the concert they always let us sing into the microphone. when they were flying over the stage on the podium, they sang moments, which was really beautiful. they let us sing the last chorus, and that was when zayn and louis waved to us <3 in last first kiss, zayn altered the last note and it sounded really nice and beautiful. i regret not videoing that. harry altered his solo in kiss you, and i couldn’t stop screaming. in over again, louis changed the lyrics “british” to “turkish” for some reason. during twitter question, niall and the audience had a little fun screaming back to each other. they only did 3 twitter questions, and it was one of the best parts. they were so funny. they even did the fresh prince of bel air theme song! haha it was the best and zayn at the end was so cute. one of the twitter questions was gramatically incorrect. “what favorite japanese word?” and when they read it out loud, they were frowning and stuff. PRICELESS. after that louis kept on repeating it and making fun of the girl HAHAHA i love louis. and so much nouis during the concert. like during one of the songs, one of the lyrics was “so hard” and when niall sang that, louis pointed at niall’s dick and mouthed “so hard”. and between the songs louis pointed at niall and he was like “i think you can see niall’s nipple through the shirt” and it was hilarious i love louis <3 and niall did his signature niall jump twice. during twitter questions, harry yelled “GANBARIMASUUU” and it was adorable. louis voice is the cutest thing i’ve ever heard omg soooo adorable. and their voices are 1000 times better live omg
yesterday was the best day ever and i had the most fun in my life ahhh omg
and i actually don’t have post concert depression. when they left, i was smiling and thinking about how happy i was, but my friend was crying. and i didn’t cry at all during the concert. i teared up during story of my life, little things and moments, but thats it. and i also teared up during one of the videos during wardrobe change because of louis.
but right now my whole body aches all over because of all the jumping and my throat hurts like hell because of the screaming
there was also these two really cool moments when liam yelled “scream!” during the middle of songs and it was just like a flash moment of everyone screaming really really loudly. but it was really quick and like really in sync both times and it was a lot of fun sigh.
I always wanted to take a sigh or something meaningful if I ever attend their show, and my sister insisted we should take a sign with the rainbow apple logo. I hesitated because it’s…a bit .. kind of.. too risky. She is not a big 1D fan but just supports what i support, I think that’s why she can be a bit reckless haha. I was indecisive until the last minutes so she just made it and we left our city with it.
The show was at Saitama Super Arena on 01 Mar 15 and our seats were just good enough for them to read the sign. We held the sign when Harry came to our side during SOML and luckily, he noticed it, waved us. I wanted to be sure it was for us,so I pointed at the sign with my thumb. Then He gave a thumbs up to us too. This is the video we filmed (0:04~)
You can see no one in front of us holding signs and they even looked confused like why is he waving us !?
And I also found this video and you can see it from another angle.(03:44~)
We didn’t have many chances because no one seriously never came to our side other than Harry, but Louis came during the last song, BSE ,so we held it again a bit towards him. I can’t tell if he saw it or they gave us any obvious reaction but I’m posting my video anyway :)
This made our day 1000000% more meaningful and enjoyable and I was so happy and grateful. I’ve already watched similar video from Australia and read some other posts, and the tour has just started! I’m just so happy that now he(they) knows more and more people support them and love them whatever happens. :)
I should have really written this report the other week when it was fresh in my memory -– ah well, ‘better late than never’ is my motto ;-) So, um, yeah…I had the best time joining in with the Rainbow Direction Project when I went to Wembley Stadium to watch One Direction on Saturday 7th June!! I’d recommend the project to all LGBT* folk (and allies) if you’re off to a 1D concert this tour!!
hiya okay so i never really talked about experience about flying to london to see the boys for the wwa tour so here goessss
i saw the boys on the 6th of june and the 8th of june at wembley stadium in london, and i got my tickets through @1dtickethelp on twitter (i had blue zone standing on the 6th, but early bird vip blue zone standing on the 8th).
6 june 2014 on the 6th i went with this girl called elena (met her through tumblr) and she was so sweet, she queued up since 1pm and i came around ¾-ish and she didn’t mind me joining her at all. she had other friends with her so there was a total of 5 of us and when doors opened at 5pm (i think) we rushed into the blue zone and we were somewhere towards the middle. somehow during the concert i managed to push my way through freaking 3rd or 4th row from the catwalk (RIGHT IN FRONT OF HARRY) and it was an amazing view although i got separated from my friends but thats ok because i had a gr8 view. i also bawled like a fucking baby during little things and don’t forget where you belong because i was too emotional (it was my first time seeing the boys) and everything just felt so surreal and i couldnt believe iwas in FREAKING LONDON SEEING FREAKING ONE DIRECTION anyway that pretty much sums up my first 1d concert experience…… crying….. a lot……… hAHAHA oh and i didn’t really get much post concert depression because i knew i was gonna see them again in 2 days anyway :-) HERES A VIDEO FROM THE CONCERT (MY VIEW)
8 june 2014 i bought the early bird vip ticket from a girl called Naimah on twitter and she was going alone to the concert as well, so i decided to join her. and she freaking queued since 8am (and she was in the first section of the queue) so i was pretty sure we were gonna get front row. as usual i went late but like i think it was around…. 2 or 3-ish and i got my ticket from her and i got my wristband and i joined her in the queue and this mother was bitching and complaining the whole fucking time it was so annoying. when we were ready to go in (they let us in early) everyone started pushing (DUH) and the mum was like screaming at everyone not to push and this older girl looked at the mum and told her to shut up i wanted to laugH so badly but i didnt so we got to the doors, and at wembley you had a barcode on your ticket which you have to scan at the gates, and there was like an empty lane and i just pushed my friend naimah into that lane and i was shaking so badly when we got past the gates, we ran to doors and security had formed a line to walk us down the steps SLOWLY into the arena and i was like second or third row in that mini moshpit. everyone was pushing to get to the bottom of the stairs and i think security gave up halfway AND ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE everyone literally started running and i started running and because i was there 2 nights ago, i knew where the boys would stand during the concert (mainly harry and niall anyway) so i ran as fast as i could and i got a spot right in front of the barrier and i pulled naimah beside me and THAT WAS BASICALLY HOW WE GOT FRONT ROW p.s. the girl beside me was really nice and she gave me tips like to put my bag down and leave a bit of space between you and the barrier so you don’t get squished when the crowd comes in and starts pushing during the concert!!!!!!!
so 5sos comes on and they put on an amazing show although they skipped my favourite song (disconnected) and i was hella pissed but anyway, 1d came on soon after and the concert was pretty much the same… except i had a better view obviously and i didn’t cry this time round hahahhaha and i enjoyed myself so so so so sO SO SO MUCH although there was fucking bitch leaning on me towards the last quarter of the concert and it was so uncomfortable because her weight caused my ribs to be jabbed into the barriers and it hurt so badly but whatever i still had a gr8 time B) HERES A VIDEO FROM THE CONCERT (MY FRONT ROW VIEW)
hope you guyS enjoyed reading this and i know this is an awful description of the concert i’ll probably edit it from time to time but yeah you get a rough idea :-) if you need tips and tricks on getting front row for GA or if you need advice on what to expect at a show please feel free to message me!!!!
