the time i went to reno to see phoenix (dec 8 2017)
I traveled 4 hours to Reno to see Phoenix last Friday! It was incredible and I stayed afterwards to meet the band in the freezing cold.
under the cut are all the great moments that happened with random small details and fangirling (if you want to skip some parts i included headers, but meeting them was so amazing, also the last 3 paragraphs are the most important bc *sobbing CHRIS*)
i cant believe i met my favorite band!!! and they were so lovely, all of them! Brandon and i had a really good conversation like he asked me about my photography and my life in Austria and he said he liked ‘picking my brain’ haha and Zac, Joe, and Tim were all super nice, we talked about previous shows and i told them im seeing them twice again this summer and i mentioned that my dream would be to photograph them from the stage and Brandon literally said that maybe they can arrange that and Tim and i talked about a mutual friend we have and yeah it was just so nice and they said they are excited to see my photos and thanked me for taking photos and omg!! and i met so many nice other fans too! since i had a photopass i didnt need my ticket (and the show was sold out within minutes since there were only 600 tickets and also they were personalized with the name of the ticket buyer on them to avoid resales) and i was able to get her in even tho the ticket was in my name and she was so happy and it made me so happy too! and the show was just…so amazing! it was hot as hell in the venue (Brandon mentioned almost passing out on stage) but the atmosphere and crowd was amazing and their set was 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 they played People Live Here and its one of my favorite songs and i never heard it live before and i got emotional and they played a couple of new songs (Brandon said they fucked them up a bit bc they only played them twice but i said i couldnt tell and also it makes it more real bc its not perfect and i like that) and yeah, just a crazy good show and one of the best nights ive ever had and im so grateful to Ashley and Rise Against!!!
“For me, Muse is about getting the hopes, dreams, desires, frustrations out of your system that you wouldn’t normally be able to do. It’s about showing people that there are things inside buried that should be exposed, and having no shame about them. We can communicate no matter the environment.” - Matt Bellamy
So here are the pictures of me meeting the Yogscast, I was actually so excited and nervous that my hands were shaking so badly the entire time. But I got all the autographs, these pics, got to watch them play some games and my friend won a freaking ps4. So yeah it was awesome
