I will say that my adventures at the Backstreet Boy concert are much more interesting than my adventures at the Hanson concert. Probably because I had two of these...
I didn't start off drinking but after the opening act being Jersey Shore's DJ Pauly D and actually doing the first pump, I felt I needed some alcohol to have an excuse for my actions.
So, I can't lie. I was a bit excited to see Jesse McCartney. He voices my favorite video game character, Roxas, from Kingdom Hearts, sings a few catchy songs, and he's not too bad to look at either. I was not at all disappointed by his act.
No he did not actually do this...but I wish he would have! lol
I had finished one whole 24 oz drink by the end of Jesse's show and decided (against better judgement and Stephanie's recommendation) to grab another one. Let me just say.... the actual BSB show... I remember it all, but it's kind of fuzzy between my shenanigans and having to pee like five times.
::Crazy BSB fans pushing::
Me: "Stop pushing me! I'm not a Backstreet Boys fan!"
BSB Fan: "Then why are you all the way up front!?"
Me: "Because this bitch loves them!" ::points to Stephanie and gives her drunk sloppy cheek kisses::
::Returning to the BSB fan pit after having to pee::
Me: ::drunk walk/stagger::
Me: "STEPHANIE!" ::push through tons of fans...run into metal barrier separating fans from stage:: "How did I get up here?"
::Pissed off BSB fans swearing and staring::
Me: "Whoa...don't get mad dude... I'm trying to find my friend... STEPHANIE!! :: turns around walks away from stage/barrier/thing::
S: "OH MY GOSH you were up there! Why didn't you pull me there with you?!:
|I know, my art work is amazing...|
Stephanie said this isn't exactly where we were or where I went, but close.
::Returning from another pee trip::
Me: ::drunk walk/stagger near merchandise::
Me: ...drunk conversations with merchandise people...
Me: ::Walking away with $80 worth of BSB stuff::
Oh, and let's not forget all my drunk facebook post that I was doing...
I would post take a picture of my facebook post, but I think my iPhone is ashamed of them because it wont load!
After the concert there was another event, a BSB After Party.
For $75 you can join a little party hosted by BSB's Nick, Kevin and Howie.
So, for real real, it's a pretty cool idea. You get a chance to be up close to the guys and they even pulled up girls on stage to dance with them. The way it worked is they would pull some girls up, dance and hang out with them for a few minutes and then a guard ushered them off and a new batch of ladies came on stage.
The coolest part was getting to see Stephanie dance and have fun on stage. :) Kevin pulled her on stage, complimented her outfit, and they danced together until some bitchy BSB fans came by and wanted pictures. Stephanie took the time to take pictures with Howie and Nick though. She was a bit disappointed because Nick seemed to be indifferent to all the fans and he was her favorite growing up.
Kevin asked to come on stage but I declined so some actual BSB fans could go. Since I didn't get on stage I got to be up in front for a while...resulting in BSB crotch in my face due to the stage being knee level. In the end I got autographs from the guys though. Kevin was the most gracious and personable out of the three. Whenever I thanked him for the autograph he shook my hand, kissed it, pulled me in for a hug, then kissed my cheek. I then asked him to sign my hand...because I was drunk and giggled like a school girl. Okay, yea I was smitten for a moment, but not as bad as Stephanie lol.
All in all... Yea, it wasn't a negative experience. It was actually a lot of fun. I would totally do it again. I would actually do it again NOT drunk lol. Has this experience made a BSB fan and break my one love devotion for Hanson? ...Not really... But this video and Kevin being just so adorable with his fans almost makes consider it!!!....
