long time lurker, today I have to share.
A very special show. My hometown. Family happening (mom, dad, brother, wife, 6 years old daughter - her first concert ever). Great seats - 1 row seats, about 10m from stage.
Working till 6pm, going home for a dinner, picking up family and than heading for a PJ gig is an once-in-a-lifetime experience after all the plane/train/car/hotel chaos of last years.
After Amsterdam 1, row 3-4 in front of Jeff, I was little bit afraid Prague will feel like lower energy, man I was wrong... The energy started to grow right from start, not slowing during the encore breaks at all. Most "big hits" were played which was cool having my parents (clapton, dylan, wonder, stones, even tina turner
listeners) there. I got my Push me Pull me and ofc GARDEN. Now hoping for Oceans tomorrow in Berlin. Loved my two fav covers, Baba and CM (hoped for this one, Mike and Boom rocking the shit out, like in Belfast). And finally 2nd encore, it couldn't get any better. You could feel the energy, 99% people on their feet, dancing, waving, rocking. Very special Betterman. Had an ecstatic grin on my face all the time, looking on stage, wife, parents, checking my daughter, seeing Dimi and many other familiar faces from other gigs in front of us rocking like crazy.
My daughter stayed up for about 70 minutes, standing on her seat and rockin' (pitty PJ started about 20mins late) and than fell asleep. I am sure she will remember this night for long time. Even in sleep, she smiled and clapped her hands after every song! Dancing and rocking to PJ and holding head of my sleeping kid is very very special experience.
Heading for Berlin tomorrow, will be more like a chill out after this emotionally so moving experience.
What a night!
