First and foremost, I want to thank the oh so very beautiful Lina [chibi_plum] for the GORGEOUS icon!
I want everyone to know that is the review I posted on daughtryofficial.com. Here is the link: http://www.daughtryofficial.com/user/cassyandra
I got there and we all got our tickets and meet and greets and we were on our way. I proudly placed my meet and greet sticker on and some people asked me how lucky enough we were to have meet and greets and I proudly told them Joseph & I were in section 126 row EE seats 1 and 2. My brother and his girlfriend were in section 126 row CC, but I can't remember their seats. I was sitting two rows above Chris Daughtry's sister-in-law and didn't even know it!
When Daughtry came out and started playing "You Don't Belong", I seriously busted out into tears. I couldn't hold it any longer because I was overwhelmed that I was going to be meeting them. I had been waiting for this day for so long and I couldn't believe it was finally happening! I don't think that it was their best performance. I felt as if they were rushed [with only 40 minutes] and weren't able to connect to the audience like the usually do the past three times I've seen them. There were people standing up, but I am sad to say that I was the only person around me who was singing the lyrics to all their songs [when I could stop crying]. I know that Bon Jovi was the headliners, but I was there for Daughtry. I could just tell the atmosphere was not like a true Daughtry concert.
The meet-and-greet was absolutely AMAZING. We [Joseph, my brother, his girlfriend, and & I] were out of fifty people who got to meet them [I knew there would be a lot of people since it was a sold out show with 22,000 people there] and I must say it was the happiest day of my life. We went into this room and everyone was lined up. The guy said Daughtry would be out in a few minutes and he said he needed to get everyone's picture and etc. fast because Chris was going back out with Bon Jovi. The guy in front of me asked when was Bon Jovi coming out and announcer guy said in one minute. THE GUY HAD THE NERVE TO SCREAM LET'S GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO MISS BON JOVI! He looked at me and asked me did I think Bon Jovi was going to come out with a old or new song and I looked at him said, "I'm really only here to see Daughtry and meet them." He looked at me like I just spoke hate words to him and just turned around and didn't say another word. I don't know who all these people were to meet Daughtry, but I don't think that people like that should be able to since there are SO MANY people who would KILL to meet them. It really did upset me and I couldn't help to get a little hateful. [Sorry for the rant]. Daughtry came out and I started shaking. When I got my chance to go up there I asked Chris could I hug him and he said of course! I hugged him and he asked my name and I told him. He asked me where I was from [I have a very thick Southern accent...been told by many it's the thickest they've ever heard] and I told him West Virginia. He said I love it and I said I love you! I thought that was funny. Anyways, we got out picture and I hugged Chris [again] and the rest of Daughtry. I've met so many bands and I have to say that they were the sweetest. I couldn't imagine having a better time meeting them and it seriously made my year/life. They are my favorite band and I cannot wait to see more of them!
I like Bon Jovi, but I'm not a big fan. I loved when Chris came out and sang "Blaze of Glory". Everyone went CRAZY! I see that a lot of people mentioned what Jon said about Chris and I think everyone around me either screamed or started crying. It seriously was so sweet. I think Bon Jovi did well, but I did get bored because they played 2 1/2 hours, but I must say their true fans NEVER got bored.( Collapse )
