Guess what I did last night?! I went to the CONCERT OF THE YEAR. That's right, I popped my Evanescence cherry. It was my first EV concert and it was the BEST TIME OF MY LIFE. (Other than my trip to Toronto, of course.)

So I've been wanting to see them for YEARS. I tried to go the last time they came, but I had no luck getting a ticket. But anyway, my friend David got me a ticket for my birthday to see them. I'm glad they didn't sell out like they did last time. And I must say, it was the best birthday present EVER.

I won't go into too many details because that would be tl;dr, but I will say this...

I can truly die happy now. I am complete.

Anyway, I met some people from EVTheads. Cara and Ashley. They were pretty cool. When I got in I immediately went to the merchandise booth to get something. I ended up getting these cute little EV buttons for $4. I wore them with pride.

The opening acts were The Rival Sons and The Pretty Reckless. They did pretty well. The lead singer of TRS was pretty sexy, and his voice was amazing. TPR was good, too. Taylor is just too pretty. I don't like her as a person, but she has a decent voice. She was dressed a little too skimpy but at least her hair looked nice. :P

It was a long time waiting for EV to come out. But it was worth the wait. When they came out EVERYONE went crazy..including me. They performed songs old and new. I cried a few times, I'll admit. I get emotional over things that effect me. So what? :P Anyway, I was singing along to some songs and I could tell the girl next to me was getting irritated. OH WELL!!! Too bad so sad. XD

The whole time they were there I felt like I was in Heaven. At one point I thought I had died and that was the afterlife. Ok not really but it was close. When it was all over I felt a sadness...but I became happy again when I realized I JUST HAD FUCKIN' SEEN EV IN CONCERT FINALLY!!

Well anyway, when it was over I met up with Cara and Ashley again to go try to meet the band. We went to the back of the theatre and there was a bunch of other people waiting but not too many. I was told that it could take HOURS for them to come out..and I had no way home but David who wouldn't have waited long for me. So I just wanted to wait until midnight. The first to come out was Taylor Momsen. She signed a couple of things and got photos with people. I didn't take a pic of her because I don't really care lol! But yeah..it took Terry and Amy about an hour or so come out. My feet were hurting like crazy but it was worth the wait. I got a pic of Terry but not with him. He was too far from me to give him my CD to sign. Ah well. Funny story: Someone in the crowd asked him something like "So Terry, what's it like being on the road with a minor?"..or something to that extent. He meant Taylor Momsen. XD He lold.

So Amy came out and everyone went nuts. I was all "ROCK QUEEN!!" :) She signed stuff and took pics with fans. Again, I couldn't get a pic with her since it was too crowded for me to get that near to her. When it was my turn to talk to her, I gave her my CD (their new album) for her to sign. I told her, "I love you so much!" and she thanked me. I didn't know what else to say. I was in shock. So yeah..I left to call David to come pick me up. I wasn't tired until I got in the car. I was just too happy to sleep. I ended up going to bed 2 hours later.

I got PICS and yes, they're blurry but it was the best I could do. The camera took FOREVER to focus. And I got a video I recorded. I only got "Oceans", though. I did record "Lost in Paradise" but the video didn' t load into the computer. So here it is:

I know it's blurry and the audio is out of whack, but the camera is a little blah. But I'm glad I got what I got.

So there you have it. My awesome night shouldn't have ended. I wish I could relive it again and again.

Wow, glad you go to go! WHOO!!!!!! I didn't get to go to the hollywood show ;(

COOL VID!!!! Bet people were going nuts! I know what you mean about reliving it over and over. Nobody knew when we would see them again when the tour ended in 2007. I never know what to say to Amy either as I'm in shock as well.
