Last night I finally got to see one of my favourite bands perform live for the first time. I had standing tickets along with two of my friends for Wembley Arena which quickly became a big mistake. Now don’t get me wrong; a bit of pushing and the odd elbow in the back is to be expected in this kind of situation but I couldn’t believe how inconsiderate some Evanescence fans were. I was being pushed so hard into the back of people that I nearly hurt my back. A small minority were friendly and understanding but most were just plain rude and childish. Part of the way through it seemed to calm down a little but was still uncomfortable. I definitely won’t be buying standing tickets for a large venue again.
Despite all this I managed to enjoy the bands performances kicking off with the first support act; ‘LostAlone’ with their weird eighties hair styles. The last support act being ‘The Used’ really got the crowd going and I spent a lot of the time trying to avoid Mosh pits. Evanescence were amazing and Amy Lee’s vocals were on top form but I couldn’t help thinking that this was the last time I’ll be seeing them as they are notorious for disappearing for long periods of time. We shall see though.
