A Moment With Me, Bucharest, My Home, Romania


english version below
Incep sa cred ca marea majoritate a romanilor si concertele se impaca cu greu. In ultimii ani am fost norocoasa sa particip la toate concertele mari care au avut loc in capitala Romaniei. Acum ar fi un moment bun sa mentionez si ca am avut cele mai bune locuri: diamond sau golden circle. De fiecare data dupa concerte o parte dintre oamenii cu care discutam aveau aceeasi parere: “Bai … nasol a mai fost aseara.”; un singur lucru aveau in comun: bilete la normal circle. Nu puteam sub nicio forma sa le scot din cap ca se inseala si ca in fata m-am simtit aproape ca la Glastonbury. Ei bine, la concertul Muse am ajuns si eu pentru prima … si ultima data la normal circle. Stiti expresia aia: “Dai un ban da’ stai in fata?” se potriveste perfect la concertele din Romania. Fanii hardcore isi rup de la gura ca sa stea acolo in fata si sa simta toata energia din timpul concertului. Ce se intampla in spate … e alta poveste.

Asa ca am de gand sa va scriu aici cateva ganduri pe care poate o sa le luati in considerare data viitoare cand aveti bilete la normal sau ma rog … la orice concert in general:

I’m starting to believe that Romanians don’t have a clue about how to behave at a concert. In the past years, I’ve been lucky enough to attend all the major concerts that took place in Bucharest. Now it would be a good time for me to mention that I’ve always had front row tickets. After every gig, some of my friends kept saying how the concert didn’t live up to their expectations. They had one thing in common: normal circle tickets. I couldn’t convince them that up front you feel like you’re at Glastonbury. Oh well, at Muse I had normal circle tickets for the first (and last) time. In Romania, we have a saying: “You pay lots of money but at least you stay in front” it applies perfectly at concerts. The true fans give their last penny for the best seats and for an unforgivable experience. What goes on behind … now that’s anther story!

So here’s my two cents on how you should behave at any concert … maybe you’ll take them into account:
