First of all, I understand that I will never be a concert photographer.
Second of all, I understand that probably no one will read this, but I’m gonna post it anyway, so there.
Last night, I became more so aware of three things: Marilyn Manson is amazing, I hate people, and that I can (kind of) survive being in a mosh pit.
The first picture is when the show was just starting and I was really close to the barricade, and the second is around half way through the show when I had to leave the front for fear of losing my phone or my life- one or the two.
At one point, I just accepted that I was going to lose one or both of my shoes- I didn’t, but I was prepared for it.
For a few split seconds that I was comfortably in the front, I couldn’t believe that I was that close to someone that I’d been a fan of for so long. Marilyn sounded and looked amazing- it was my first time seeing him live, so I was in awe, obviously. It was unbelievable to me, that he was right there- an artist that I admire so much. It was insane.
However, I was then hit in the face, and things got a little less amazing from there.
Never mind, me being tossed this way and that- the show was still great. I got to see all of Marilyn’s different outfits and stage props and the band’s performance was awesome. This was my first “big show”, so I really didn’t know what I was in for- the pictures that I’ve seen from other shows and the two that I’m posting from mine, don’t do it justice.
So here I am, the morning after, bruised, and sore. I’ve got to say that I’ve been reading online forever that at shows, people like me are supposed to feel like they fit in perfectly- I felt the exact opposite,
but maybe that’s just because most of the people from Arkansas are horrible/immature/idiots. Or maybe I just don’t fit in with the harder rock/metal fans from my state. Either way, if anyone from the UK wants to adopt me, I’m totally available for that.
People aside, the show was amazing.
I’ll always remember watching the curtain fall down and then looking up to see one of my heroes standing right in front of me.
