I was just about to go to sleep so my body is too tired to translate how much I actually love your post, which is lots :thumb:

Wow Rachel, how amazing to have them not only sign your uke, but play it, lovingly... :rock: :clap:

Can't wait to see the video and hear some about your evening too Venus.

Glad to see your waiting paid off and you got to meet them.
:biggrin: They signed and played your Uke! That's my dream.

The stories from this tour are warming my heart. B & J (&N) really seem to be having fun, and so many WTFers are coming home with wonderful memories. :heart:

Great post Rachel!! What a wonderful experience that must have been! WOO! :whitey:

Also, I suspect I may be looking at all these pics too closely, but... has our Bret split his pants?! :shock:

And if so, any volunteers to sew them up? :waggle:
(Hmm, maybe I shoulda asked that over on the Bretylicious thread eh?) :lol:

Somehow last night managed to exceed my expectations, I thought it was a great show. And it was so surreal being in the front row and so close to them, I almost felt like I was just watching a youtube video. :D

Yay for all of you! :yay:

Jimmyflo, front row! :shock: :supz:

Venus, glad you got to hear Inner City Pressure - it was the first song I ever heard the guys do live.

Rachel, what can I say? How wonderful for you! That uke should be encased in glass and put in a museum. :nod:
So glad you made your train - whew!

Here's the video I took! :D


I felt a little bad filming since Bret didn't seem too keen on a few of us filming them (could have been in a jokey way though) but I don't think much else happened after I stopped filming. :)

Yay thank you :prayer:

But I did have to mute when I started to talk, and I'm glad you finished it before it was me asking "can you sign it now" repeatedly and them carrying on playing (they were in the moment) :lol:

Yeah I think he was mostly joking Venus cause maybe he was a tidbit embarrassed by how he was having trouble remembering chords. That's how it sounded to me, more like a, "Oh don't record that I sound so bad" kind of playing around bit.

I reallllly have to find a way to bring my uke now! :nod:

Hope you can get your uke over, I spent all day trying to decide if I should take it and as you can tell, I'm very glad I did.

Nigel was particularly resplendent in polka dots & a cravat!

Yeah, he probably did mean it that way. Doesn't stop me from being a tad paranoid though lol. He was lovely throughout so my paranoid feelings soon vanished whilst talking to him.

Yes, I loved Nigel's outfit! Unsurprisingly, Nigel was incredibly sweet and I'm glad I got to speak to him for a bit. :)

I'm so glad you decided to bring your uke, rachel! I had a feeling that they were going to come out for a M&G that night so I knew it wouldn't have made a waste journey (if I didn't have that feeling, I wouldn't have stuck around and missed the last train home!). ;)

Rachel were you looking around for Jemaine or what???? :lol: By the way, you are too adorable for words and I love your jumper too!
