On July 9, I went to the Pittsburgh warped tour date with my best friend
and my dad. Sometimes I think that my best friend and I are bad luck
because every time we go to a concert together something is bound to go
wrong (seriously it always happens..).
Anyways, when we got let in, the very first thing we did was run to the
journeys tent to get wristbands to meet Pierce The Veil. We got them
then went to the Asking Alexandria tent to see about meet and greets. We
had gotten the tickets for the meet and greet ( bare in mind that my
dad was with us, which means that he met asking with us.. Not a problem
considering he actually likes Asking..).
Once we finished running around to different tents, we finally went and
started watching bands play. By the time we were in the crowd for
Mallory Knox, it had started to rain.. It stopped after a while and when
Escape The Fate came on after, the rain had started back up (not that I
minded.) Craig announced that they were going to their tent which was
great. Ive been listening to escape the fate for around 7 years and this
was my first time seeing them live ( it was everything I hope for!).
Unfortunately, Craig and TJ weren’t at the tent but Robert and Thrasher
were. When I met Robert I told him about how long I’ve been waiting to
see and meet them and we cracked a few jokes about how next time I’m not
going to wait 7 years.
After this, it was around 2:30
which meant that the Pierce the Veil meet and greet was starting soon.
When I met PTV it was great because they’re a band that means a lot to
Next was meeting Asking.. Oh god where do I begin with this one!? First
we had gotten to the tent like and hour early ( not that we cared.. No
one we wanted to see was on until later) and after a few minutes of
waiting.. It started to pour. We of course got soaked so when Asking
finally got to the tent I was unbelievably happy ( not just to meet them
but to finally get out of the rain). Meeting Asking ( minus Denis
because rumor was he was doing stuff for the new album) was awesome and
oh my god it was embarrassing..
A few nights before Warped, my friend and I decided to print out the
guys’ faces and put them around my kitchen for my parents to find..
Forgetting that my dad was with us, he mentioned it and my god the look
on Sam and Cams faces were priceless considering all the heard was “
Cams on a zucchini and Sam has a light switch as a dick” . It was
fucking awesome. When we finally had finished with meeting the band, we
went and got in the pit area in the pavilion ( which was a fucking
struggle not gonna lie). We had somehow made it front and watched the
other bands preform including Pierce the Veil, Attila, and BlessTheFall.
When Asking finally took the stage it was fucking mayhem tbh. Ben had
noticed us in crowd and shot is a look of amusement that we had made it
to the front and laughed because we were in front of Cam the whole time.
When the show was over, the guys threw they’re pics/drumsticks in the
crowd and I got Sams bass pic and fuck was I happy. Also, in the morning
we had met Nick Major from Alt Press ( my spirit animal tbh ) and Adam
Elmakias. It was a great day and I can’t wait for next year!
