It was strange sitting in the crowd. I’m sure everyone in the crowd looked excited to the viewers watching at home. Sitting in the crowd, you get to see how varied everyone’s tastes are. The two middle-age ladies sitting next to us weren’t very interested in Metallica. The young early-twenties girls sitting in front of us leaped to their feet for the Black-eyed Peas and Pussycat Dolls.
I didn’t bring my camera. I didn’t want to travel all the way in and find that I couldn’t get in without it. But I did take some pictures with my camera phone and put them up on Flickr. The quality is pretty poor and there was no zoom, so you can see the stage and stadium, but no performers. The flickr link is here.
This is the first concert I’ve attended in over ten years. Later this summer, it will be Prince at the Millennium Dome (the O2). Can’t wait.
