Carrie's Fan Tale
Last year, me and two of my friends got tickets to go and see Coldplay when they played the Barrowlands in __ . The gig was so much better than i thought it would have been and I was impressed with the support band Lowgold (whom I've gone to see since). After the gig, my friends and i were hanging around outside waiting for our lift and we noticed that the bassist of Lowgold was standing just to our right which we thought was pretty funky. So our lift was late and soon there was only my friends and i, the bassist and some other people standing outside the ballroom. We started talking to the bassist after a while and then he offered us three backstage passes! So we went back into the Barrowlands and were soon a room with Lowgold and Coldplay among other folk. We were sitting in the room for a while before my friends forced me to go and ask some random lady for a pen (which one of my friends stole *tisk-tisk*). We then went and spoke to Guy from Coldplay and asked him to sign our posters which he did (really nice guy *boom-boom* sorry..). It was getting really late (and our lift didn't know where we were..) and the other members of the band were still in their dressing room so we had to ask a lovely security guard (we love you) to pass our posters into the bands dressing room. We got them signed and then left (with the lady's pen). End of a great night. Cheers Mr Lowgold, Coldplay, the lady who owns the pen, the nice security guard (we love you), the man who hands out the cups of water, our lift (yes, we're sorry) and Cheers muchly the Barrowlands.
