France, Paris – Omnisport Arena 2008 2nd night

10/10

The next day we did some more sightseing. A lot to see for sure.
We headed to the arena quite late.

We had seated tickets for the second Paris show which was good in a way. We could just walk inside and be seated. We did see the full Lauren Harris set, which I think gets a bit boring and a while. Seen it a few times now. The arena was already quite packed. Very impressive arena by the way, very intimate even thought it holds about 18 000 people. I spotted Polish Eddie in the seated section and went for a chat. The crowd was on fire this evening too and was electric in the the moments before and during the intro tracks.

The 2 hours to follow, I can`t describe. It was my best show ever. It was sheer power from the 6 people on stage, the crowd and arena. The whole place lifted, and we had full view from our places. It wasn`t one in the arena who did not stand and cheer.

Highlights for was Powerslave, the ending was superb, and ROTAM.  Revelation, all were great.

After the show we went to a aftershow with a lot of people from the board. It was a long and fun night. It was fun meeting the welsh again outside the arena. Thanks for guiding us the afterparty at The Frog
