BTW did anyone meet J by any chance?

How did you street team leaders get the banner to them?

Truly, all of this pushing and shoving isn't good. I'm short and also tend to lose my balance easily. Heat also negatively affects me and it is already toasting up here in San Deigo.
If you were even THINKING about coming to the west coast shows, perhaps you want to stay home....lol...jk.

lol~

anyways, the beginning of the concert was crazy! I was like in the front (2nd row-middle) and I had like no room to move or breathe. Everyone was sweating like crazy. After a couple of songs, I HAD to get out because I couldn't handle all the heat and pushing. I went to the sides (that was in the front) and it was so much better. I could actually breathe, no pushing (except from the stafffs >_>) and I had a good view. Other than that, the concert went great. Everyone was really nice and VAMPS did amazing. HYDE sounded awesome and he looks exactly like pictures. He's really small though, very cute :D His english was very good actually! I understood all his MCs!

I also bought some stuff.
- Pink Tshirt (M) - $20
- Black Tshirt (L) - $20
- Green Tshirt (L) - $20
- Black wrist band - $8
- pink wrist band - $8
- black bag - $5
(I might be selling a green shirt and a wristband, PM if you're interested. IDK why my brother bought the green tshirt -_-)
**will take pics later =D)

BTW, I forgot to mention, there was this staff member that was REALLY nice (and cute) to fans. I think his name was Taki? IDK he was also selling goods.

Thanks for the prices. Now I have to start saving up.

LOL im REALLY short too so if i dont get somewhere up front i have no chances whatsoever of seeing anything but in order to get up front you have to go through all the pushing and shoving so its sorta a lose/lose situation for me lol

Oh heat bothers me too if i get too hot i get a horrible headache so standing in line all day is going to be *fun* lol

RE: AFTER THE CONCERT!
Wow! I'm getting so excited for Las Vegas! I'm glad you guys posted the prices and the items! Thank you! ^^ I have a summer job right now and have a big amount of money, but I think I may go broke in Vegas @.@ XD

By any chance, did they have a purple shirt? ^^;

And the set list... OMG I'm so happy Hyde played some of his solo stuff ^.^

RE: AFTER THE CONCERT!
x_______x I tried to sleep more but I can't. Does anyone else feel that the insanity of the fans kind of ruined the concert a little? I feel like I missed out on A LOT because of all the crazy moshing...
I somehow managed to survive in the 2nd row middle, but seriously come on! Pushing everyone and freaking out is not going to make the concert more enjoyable! I really just wanted to listen and watch and maybe dance a little (jumping etc). I'm still blown away, but I also feel kind of sad...

--------------------
i was worrying about this. like cathb and tracy, i can't take the jostle or the heat, plus i have arthritis head to toe. was gonna just go for further back, but it sounds like there was a lot of pushing period. i suppose too much excitement.

as to heat west coast, it's gonna be in the 90s here and probably in Baltimore too, all week. our weather is pretty similar. and being a coastal/harbor city, guaranteed to be humid enough to be drenched pretty quickly. too bad we couldn't do this in the spring or fall, just from that standpoint, mind you.

see you in Baltimore. try to get some rest. thanks for the reports! Icon_heart

Say, Tracy, you might try making sure to get enough protein in you and enough water, for the 48 hours before the concert. I'm guessing your headaches are because your blood sugar's low or you're dehydrated.

Getting enough protein is better for steadying your blood sugar than sugary stuff (unless you have some medical condition, then of course, listen to your doctor). Don't wait too long in between eating, and drink water often, for the 48 hours before the concert, and I bet it will improve your headaches.

For myself, I'm afraid of energy crash. Hopefully, the music will feed me like the lifeblood, and make me invincible.Icon_heartbeat

thanks forevery one who has given a report of their fun time at the concert . (now i now about how much money to bring inside :D)

I very much agree with the heat issue and the advice. people should drink plenty of liquids and eat properly. (lol right now where I'm at its already 92 degrees outside and its only 11am (its going to get to at least 103 today D:)

Yes I did. I gave it to a staff (after many rejected me, one was nice enough to take it. I think he was a manger? not sure) there was no fan gift box =*(

NO GIFT BOX?
Awww i was planning to buy them something from Chile, then add something hand made
i guess it's better to not give then anything

RE: AFTER THE CONCERT!
regarding the heat, i'm reeeeally glad that VAMPS didn't come to arizona, because it was 117 yesterday, and i think it'll be 113 today, but that could go up ^^; they would bake @.@

how hot was it in NYC?

i agree with the advice for the heat ^^ drink a lot of water!

It is sad... that your greatest memory of this will be the pushing and shoving and moshing. Well... cheer up, Haidoist, you'll get ur second chance to enjoy in Baltimore. I'm seriously hoping it is a bit calmer. Though, obviously there are 100's attending the shows that aren't on this forum, and they won't hear our cry for "sanity" at the concerts.

Thanks for the post. I now know I'm not trying for the front in Baltimore, I'm just gonna concentrate on the meet and greet. If we actually get to stand a table width apart from them for a moment... who cares where you are at in the concert. Question... Who was doing the pushing and shoving? Was it guys or girls? younger or older? Or was it just everyone?

What is truly sad... is that concerts like this that I've been to (general admission), the pushing comes from the fans who lined up late, but still expect to get up front. That sucks, they show up like an hour before the show, enter the hall and bully their way to the front squeezing out ppl who have been there since dawn. These fans could be the nicest ppl in line, but when "push comes to shove" they become monsters.
