But hey, it wern't all tears :)
BTW - I'm the red haired one :P
Right, here we gooooo on details!:)
Headliner - LostProphets! (SHEEP SHAGGERS! :D)
Supporting Act(s) - Kids In Glass Houses, We Are The Ocean
Venue - O2 Academy (Leeds) Ticket Price - £22
Doors Open - 19:00 (we got in roughly quater past, and we were near enough round the block! FUCK o2 PRIORITY! WE COULDN'T FIND IT!)
RIGHT! FIRST BAND, TAKE THE PAGE!
We Are The Ocean
Screamo/Emo/Rock (hey thats my honest opinion)
I think our view was pretty good, don't you agree? :)
Anywhooo, I actually didn't know these were playing, if you want the truth, I've never really heard about them, but I will definitely be buying their album! Steph didn't really like them, but yet again, she's more GaGa then Blackout :)
PLUS THEY HAD COOL MERCH! So their band rating - 6/10
SECOND BAND - TAKE THE PAGE!
Kids In Glass Houses
Pop/Punk/Rock (yet again, another opinion I half turned off)
These guys barely did anything for me. Plus I only actually knew one song - (GIMMIE WHAT I WANT GIMMIE WHAT I WANNNNNT :) )
But meh, their merch didn't strike me, but they DID try to open up the crowd, and even mentioned a Love Heart :D ... do I mark them down for the Valentines day reference... NOPE! - 7/10
AND NOW, THE BAND WE'VE ALL BE WAITING FOR - PLEASE WELCOME
LOSTPROPHETS TO THE PAGE!
Screamo/Emo/Rock (hey if you wanna disprove me, listen to The Betrayed! it was that tour of course)
Well, logically, they started with If It Wasn't For Hate We'd Be Dead By Now then burst into Dstryr Dstryr :) man the place kinda blew. Steph got right at the front from all the pushing but came back to find me.
They then covered The Prodigy - Omen... yeahh... cause their normal?
We had the delights of hearing Can't Catch Tomorrow, Town Called Hyprocrisy, Last Summer, Last Train Home, Rooftops and a old song, I dunno which, everyone was shouting for Godzilla or Shinobi.
Oh, then Jamie and Ian split the crowd, and Jamie's side (which I was in :) ) were louder than Ian's side and re-enforcements (THE BALCONY AND SIDES?! WTF?!) So we all kinda started shouting "WHO ARE YA!" to Ian... surprised he didnt say "Watkins".
Great gig, four-five people away from the front, even-eight people away from the middle, three forward from the moshpit... hmm...
Got a poster and jacket from merch. - 9/10
Injuries - I'm actually limping today, knee problem and it actually hurts to straighten my whole right leg... but ohhh well :D
Lostages - a half empty bottle of coke and the cover for my camera, two shagbands (threw AT the stage like) and Steph afew times :)
BTW did anyone else know that bottles are BANNED at the O2 Academys!?
Rachiee Is Listening To - Where We Belong - LostProphets
P.S - anyone else notice that Ian Watkins (WELSH!) sings about "Follow Sheep Around" hmm... are they telling us something? (welsh - sheep shaggers? i thought it was an amusing joke personally)
A Light That Shines Twice As Bright - Encore :)
