to the Muse concert in Kuala Lumpur on the 25th of February and it was freaking AWESOME!!!
Just when I thought I was gonna lose hope on finding a ticket for Nit, a good samaritan in a form of an old chat friend that I hardly knew offered to sell a pair of them at retail price to me! At retail, baby! Hahahahahaha, was I the happiest girl that night or what??? The morning of the concert I had 3 tickets in my hands, that's more than I needed.
And that's when I realized that I am surrounded by good people , I just didnt realize just how lucky I was, and still am. Thanks dude, I'd never forget it!
Anyways, we got there about half an hour before 8pm, and had to wait for about an hour before it started.
The show itself was amazing, Matt Bellamy was amazingly good with his instruments, and I'm talking about his guitars and his piano and of course his crazy voice. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. Of course, I've listened to and seen Knights of Cydonia before the concerts and thought that "hey, this is a studio album, bet you must've manipulated the sound of yr voice a lil", but listening to him going falsetto-mad during the opening of the show was, "Wowwww, how the hell did he do that??" . I mean I'm a girl, and even I dont think my voice can go that high, heck, I dont think even Justin Timberlake can (Justin who?) .
But I think the one song that got me going mental was Plug In Baby. Upon them playing the opening riffs, I suddenly found myself shouting and jumping like a monkey, and thinking, "hmmm, jumping like this is fun" and I kept going despite being at the most "unhappening" location in the stadium, but I DIDNT CARE! I love the song and nobody was gonna stop me from acting like an idiot .
And it was about then that I realised the pervert started inching away from me. Perhaps my jumping, and kicking and elbowing and stepping on his foot got too much out of control, he must've thought it was too dangerous to be around me. Whaddaya know, it's actually good sometimes to be lil' crazy! :D And so I kept going until the end of show, slowing down only when I got kinda tired.
Overall, it was an electrifying show, I really wish they would come again, and when they do, I'd buy the tickets the first day they sell them!
Oh, you must be wondering what happened to that extra ticket? Well, I sold it to a Chinese guy just less than 3 hours before the show. He found my ad online and we completed the transaction at Citibank 45 minutes later. Before he contacted me, a Malay guy called to buy it only to cancel it 5 hours before the 8pm. Although I was furious, I kept my cool and I told him it was ok. That was probably the wrong thing to do 'coz he called a few times just minutes before the show, asking me if I had arrived, apologizing for not buying the ticket etc etc. And during the last call he made to me, he went straight to the point, and said, "Saya nak berkenalan dengan awak". Erghhhhhh, how dare he?! After canceling the purchase of the ticket! Hey, this guy was just some kid looking for some sexytime (cant help it, I love Borat, hehehehe), I can easily tell that, so I, of course said maybe not! Although if I were with Mary and wasnt in a car driven by Nit's dad, I might've actually say, "Sure!".....hehehehe . Therefore, it was a good thing I was with Nit, 'coz I am normally more well-behaved around her and she keeps me sane most of the time, although ocassionally she does go along with my crazy ideas, especially when we're both desperate, like when trying to get the tickets.......hehehehe.
Here are some pictures from the concerts stolen from the net (courtesy of Tired.Unhappy and pbc06). I was too scared to bring my own camera, and could only take crappy pictures as you can see above.
How I wish they would come again soon ! I cant even remember when I last attended a concert this good!
