Time Flies!

This day ten years ago, April 30th 2005, I attended my first real concert. 
In late 2004 it was announced that Queen and Paul Rodgers would do a European tour and one of the dates was in Stockholm. 
We purchased tickets in January and finally, after what felt like an eternity, 30th of April came. I remember how excitied and nervous I and my sister were, I barely could eat the Falun sausage and pasta we had for dinner before our aunt and cousin came to pick me, sis and mum up.
Well at the venue we took place in the standing section and waited anxiously (my dear sister kept saying "What if they won't show up?!"), and I remember I just stared when Q+PR eventually came on, not a word came out when everyone else cheered. I couldn't believe I was seeing Queen (well, not the original lineup)! 
What a great show it was, so nice to hear all those classics live. Sure, it wasn't Freddie on vocals - because that would have been impossible - but Paul Rodgers did an excellent job! He got a new fan after that, I love Free and Bad Company. 

I was so high on adrenaline and happiness after that show, and when arriving back home I burst into tears because I was so happy - no joking! I didn't know what to do with myself and I walked on clouds long after that. To this day it's still one of the best shows I've been to. 

Since April 30th 2005 I have seen Queen 3 times in total, twice in the UK, and I've been to loads of other gigs. 
And the best thing, I'm still excited for every show I attend. :-) 

Keep it rock, folks!
