The Gig

The Crave  - Breaking the Silence Tour 2011

Last night was fucking amazing. Probably the best gig I have ever been to. I was stood about a metre away from Carlos, which was kinda perfect. I wanted to reach out and touch him. They played all my favourite songs, my neck and back are still hurting from thrashing about, going insane. The two support bands were pretty immense too. The first one, Outside Asylum, played for half and hour and they were pretty good. The bassist was quite hot and I got a kiss from him later that evening. He also gave Freya and me his CD xD. Woop!! Tiger Please played next, for 50 minutes. They were mind-blowing. The heavy songs had me dancing like a nutter, the sad songs touched my heart and I was nearly crying. Then The Crave came on, although they only played for an hour. They were by far the best. Carlos was so close to me, everytime he looked at me he would take my breath away and I’d forget the lyrics to the song. I was so pleased to be so close to someone I idolise.

As always at gigs, you meet cool people. Faye was someone I sorta met at the Quo gig in December, so we met up with her again. We also met a woman in her late 40s probably, called Tracy. Freya, Faye and I had been waiting in the cold for two and a half hours, and Tracy came over for a chat. Then there was this hot guy, Jake. He looked quite lonely, just stood on his own taking photos (he’s a photographer). For four hours he was fucking flirting with me, even gave me his number … then when he was on the train he sent me a text saying he was “happily engaged”. FUCK YOU!!!

Merchandise wise, I bought a limited edition poster (442/600), which each member of the band signed for us. I also bought a tour t-shirt and a black The Crave t-shirt, which I will wear. Meeting the guys again afterwards was great; all four are such great guys. Carlos has had his hair cut, but he’s still fucking smoking hot. And he was smiling so much, just beaming away - I love it when you can see a band has truly enjoyed themselves. I got a photo with Carlos and Ryan, they each had an arm around me which sent me into a fucking warrant of daydreams. I was in heaven in their arms. I also got photos with CJ and Tom individually. I had a chat with CJ for about 10 minutes, he’s a really great guy and I enjoyed talking to him. He said he hopes to see us in Manchester (Freya and I are considering getting tickets again). I also had a chat with Tom for a couple of minutes. Those guys are so down to earth, they really are awesome.

Got home at quarter to twelve. Fucking knackered now, as you can imagine. But it was sooooooooo worth it. <3
