Young Wild Things Tour

[mood| drained]

I am back, finally. Well, mentally, I mean. Physically, it was last night, but you'll forgive me, eh? Bullet point review ahead.

-CIWWAF is not cute at all. Or remotely good. I kept yawning during their set and wondering when I'd get to see more of Cobra and Guy Ripley on the jumbotrons in between the sets.

-Speaking of Cobra, MADE OF WIN. If no one had noticed yet. And Ryland and Gabe both said "Delicious" and all was right in the world.

-PWT's were better than I thought they'd be. Hey There Delilah is one hellah overplayed song, but their set was strong and I found myself digging them just for the concert.

-It being the last major arena date of the tour, a couple pranks were played, but the only real one I could find was there was a huge explosionish thing when they started Hey There Delilah *lol* They had some amusing banter trying to figure out what happened (and OMG Pete was right there off to the side of the stage, there to survey the mayhem and grinning like a little kid, aw.)

-I had barrier.


-Chicks over twenty five and have VIP passes think they can walk all over you. Seriously. We thought they had some legit problems and tapped the security guards and everything to help them with the issues they were having in the pit, but they were fucking faking and pushing forward to the barrier and I got crushed. And one of them was leaning over like she meant to fucking block my line of vision, when it's pretty obvious that they're fucking Amazons that can see perfectly fine without being on the barrier, but they were just selfish bitches who didn't know the songs, didn't sing along, loudly declared that they were VIPs and could do whatever the fuck they wanted cuz "We're with the band, bitches", and tried to flirt with any guy they could catch the attention of. It was disgusting and rude and I totally would have flipped a bitch if I had my voice, but I'm sick, so hopefully I just got them sick too. Sam tried to reason with them, but they totally blew us off, so I spent GCH's set and about half of FOB's set in considerable pain. They finally left during Golden, and the girl that was next to me before they shoved their way in grabbed a hold of my arm and pulled me back to her side, saying "I wanted to help you."

Never let it be said that I don't love the real fans.

-I didn't let those two ruin the concert for me. GCH was so, so good (being the first time I've seen them live). Travis's charisma and charm is so encompassing and draws you in so easily that you can almost forget about two dumb bitches trying to block your view of the show (grr.) I had a big WTF moment @ the rather large blue boy costume, but GCH got me so pumped! Travis played the "If you're sexy and you know it, clap your hands" game with us before Shoot Down the Stars ^__^

-Maybe I never noticed it before, but the drummer is so smiley and adorable. I bet he'd be great to play some video games with.

-And ohgosh, they played part of this 80's song to get the crowd pumped, but I can't recall the name! It's not Baba O'Reilly, but it does have some intense synthesizer action and it was awesome.

-They covered a song by the Arctic Monkeys (but I didn't know it cuz I've never heard any of their stuff), but Travie said it was one of his favorite songs of all time and he has tempted me to check them out. Anyone got any songs of theirs?

-Paaaaaatrick! The singing! The skipping! The wee adorableness! My theory on the skipping is that with GCH, he knows he's standing in a land of giants, so he has to keep moving and hope that people won't notice how teeny tiny he is, but that all goes to hell when Travis calls him over and slings an arm around him and calls him the ninth wonder of the world while Patrick shakes his head. THEN HE HUNG HIS HEAD AND IT WAS PRETTY MUCH THE BEST EVER.



-Andy actually made it all the way to the acoustic break to before taking his shirt off. Color me impressed XD

-Joe's hair is going to take over the world. Fact.

-I approve mightily of Patrick's sudden interest in vests.

-I've never really realized how motherfucking AWESOME Joe Trohman is until I actually saw him up close and playing his ass off for us, challenging us, smiling down and interacting and looking for all the world like he wanted to dive headfirst into us. That kid is amazing and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

-Pete said this would be the last time they'd be touring in the US for a while and all I could think was HALLELUJAH! Those boys seriously need and break for naptime, jeez. Pete talked a bit more, talking about how much of a dumbass he was for breaking his foot, but he's smiling cuz they're getting time off, but he was pretty subdued during the whole thing. He came over and interacted with the audience quite a bit and crossed over into Joe's side, but with the lack of mobility, his stage presence isn't all there, which kind of didn't matter because JESUS CHRIST PATRICK STUMP. But there was ground-hip thrustage and exploding ovaries ohgodohgod (and I'm not even a Pete girl) and bass lickage to make up for what else he lacked.

-And Pete's hair wasn't horrible. THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID IT.

-The back of Pete's bass reads, "The Universe Speaks To Me." Fic is in there somewhere, I believe.

-At one point, Pete was confused by a bit of red heart-shaped confetti that fell in front of him XDDD He had to stop talking and catch it and fruitlessly tried to throw it at Patrick (a whole ten feet away from him LAWLZ) but it stuck to his fingers. Oh Pete <3

-There was a bit of a switch up in the setlist/stage choreography in that instead of playing Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner they played Yule Shoot Your Eye Out and I laughed really hard. Also, Pete and Patrick and then Joe and Pete played at each other quite a bit, Joe and Patrick back to back on Sugar, and Pete decided to lean against Patrick on that song rather than Hum Hallelujah. But there was still Mr. Brightside shenanigans, fun!

-Patrick is a rockstar. There's really no other way to describe it. He fucking struts around, headbangs and jabs at the guitar like it's the only thing that's keeping him alive, he has this voice, guys, you know about that voice and the intense expressions on his face and. My all-encompassing love, let me show you it. This is the show I went to on the day that Patrick's letter to showed up, and I can't even guys. He exists and that is more than enough.

Mah awesome tour shirt, let me show you it

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Only ten bucks, suckas.


The (After) Life of the Party. OSIDLUGFBWVNODLCYWDHJGFB!!! <--Pretty much covers all the bases on what I was thinking when they started playing this. So I didn't remember that once my camera starts recording video, it can't zoom >.< So I had to stop a bit and zoom and record more, so this is split into two and the second part is too long to upload on photobucket's video requirements, BUT IT'S FABULOUS. I'VE WAITED FOREVER TO HEAR THIS LIVE.

Obligatory Mr. Brightside shenanigans

I tried to get different songs than last time, but some are the same. These are all better quality than the videos above, I assure you. All videos re on megaupload but I'll put them on sendspace if it doesn't work for you!

Arms Race

Golden on acoustic guitar. This is actually where the two uber bitches left and my barrier mate pulled me to her side, so I apologize for the momentary talking and shaky vid >.< Listen to Patrick, mmkay? It's pretty.

Hum Hallelujah


XO, and at this point I about exploded from JOY.

The (After) Life of the Party part one and part two


Me + You

Mr. Brightside (like the vid above)


Arms Race


Hum Hallelujah

Dance, Dance


The (After) Life of the Party part one and part two


Me + You

It's sounds like you had an awesome time (despite the Amazons). PATRICK! *flails*

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:30 am (UTC)(link)
I did! The awesomeness FOB and GCH combined is enough to overshadow all that badness, for sure.

PAAATRICK! *flails with you*

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
They seem like they are awesome in real life. I'd love to go to a concert, but I shall just have to wait.

Srsly. How does he not just explode with awesomeness?

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
I'm not even halfway through but you've got me squeeing like a fool.

BTW, GCH played "Jump" by Van Halen in NY. Maybe it was the same thing here?

*dances and checks out the vids*

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
Jump! That's what it was! ^__^ Oh, thank you, that was bugging me all the time

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
YAY! I helped. :D

Also, I am now crying over your footage of Golden.

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:27 am (UTC)(link)
Patrick can do it to the best of us :-)

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:03 am (UTC)(link)
Great recap! Thanks. Great shirt too. Awwww.

I'm gonna miss 'em but by golly do they deserve a break from touring. They have other pursuits outside of touring and now they can turn their attention to them.

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:07 am (UTC)(link)
I just saw the words "(After) Life of the Party" as I was scrolling and I'm SO JEALOUS THAT THEY PLAYED THAT LIVE D: did they play that song on every show?? 'Cause that's pretty much an amazing song :) you're so lucky to have seen them play that!!

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:35 am (UTC)(link)
They played it at all the YWT tour dates, if I'm not mistaken, and yeah, I was so insanely happy they played it ^__^

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:12 am (UTC)(link)
hi! got here through your post on falloutboylove. i was there last night as well. the show was 100% pure win. i too was dying to hear (after)life live, and was not disappointed. the show was amazing. those boys never fail me. nor does GCH, i must say. what a blast. :D

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
I was there! First time I haven't gotten barrier, but it was amazing all the same. Joe's hair is fucking insane, but I love his jewfro. Patrick looked so pumped~ during GCH, it made me "aw" out loud hahaha. I was surprised by Andy too, I could definitely feel the fire from where I was standing, and he was right by it. :O
Pete trying to throw the confetti made him look like he was 5. Ahahahah.

I'm not a big fan of PWT's either, but I liked how their singer (Tom?) kept on jumping around. I saw him at Target earlier that day, he was trying to look inconspicuous. He failed horribly.

Ugh, I didn't like the crowd much either. Dealing with a bunch of drunk people is a lot harder than dealing with little girls. But they're both equally amusing hah.

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
And sendspace, please? :D

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:23 am (UTC)(link)
Gradually editting as I upload. Stay tuned to this space ;-)

[identity profile] 2007-12-04 09:40 pm (UTC)(link)
All of them are uploaded now!

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
gch played jump. -nods-


i was front center for all the openers and then i got like... really sick (i had been feeling really awful all day) so i had to get out just before fob started and i went up into the seats and rocked slightly less hard as i would have if i was still up there.

-downloads them all-

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 06:16 am (UTC)(link)
awesome that you had so much fun!
reading that makes me miss my show even more, despite the fact that i was almost suffocated by all of the yeti's i was surrounded with.

thanks for uploading all of these! totes snagging a few. :D

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 06:50 am (UTC)(link)
YAY! this sounds thoroughly awesome.

[identity profile] 2007-12-03 07:59 am (UTC)(link)

Oh Travie. I have lost such respect for you.

In other news, this? "The Universe Speaks To Me.". So in my head now....

Wait, what? Something about a barrier, you say?


[identity profile] 2007-12-06 04:04 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, okay, avoiding like the plague then ^__^

And this is what I do. I sit here, and by sit here, I clearly mean I let Wentz think of insidious ways to plant plot bunnies and concepts into your head in the hopes that I get fic out of you, because I'm an evil mastermind like that.

o i c wut u did thar. Oh yes, I got to see that Wentz child all up close and saw everything I would've expected out of him. Also, Patrick rocking out right in front of you is just about the greatest thing in the history of the world. For the record.

[identity profile] 2007-12-04 06:50 am (UTC)(link)
best show ever. patrick skipping around the stage was adorable.

i was really hesitant to go to the show, since the radio was giving away free tickets and such, but it really made me remember how much i actually care for the band.

did you happen to catch travis breaking up that fight between those two crew members after he ran off stage during fob's set?

[identity profile] 2007-12-04 06:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Actually yeah, I caught that fight, since it was right near where I was, and just wondered what the hell that was all about. I mean, I hoped no one got hurt or anything, but Travis was brave getting between those two; they looked about ready to tear each other's head off.

[identity profile] 2007-12-04 10:34 pm (UTC)(link)
yeah i love how he just jumped right in and broke them apart.

and then went back to his swivel chair and spun around :) he's such a cutie.

[identity profile] 2007-12-06 11:21 pm (UTC)(link)
\o/ awesomeness!

And these videos are so good. Hehe.

Hey, did someone run out and do the screaming bits on either Carpal Tunnel or I Slept With Someone...? And if so, could you tell what they looked like? LOL. We're trying to track how long Matt's on the tour and he does that sometimes. XD

[identity profile] 2007-12-07 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
Matt came out and did I Slept With Someone..., I can assure you :-)

[identity profile] 2007-12-21 01:11 am (UTC)(link)
*cries* what a beautiful concert you have no idea how BADLY i wanted to see the young wild things tour like so bad i sent an e-mail to FBR going PLEASE SEND THEM TO MELBOURNE JUST FOR ONE DAY!!! but alas the YWTT was only mean for american peoples. Thanks for filling us in on what happened i am HANGING OUT to see them again but with this break i don't know how long it will be. Actually you seem a little more in the loop than me, do you know how long this break will last? Even roughly how long? By the way i read Redrawing The Lines again today and that line about patrick trying to fit the image of pete into the delicate mosaic ha had of him in his mind and about the way it made the glass shine - such a stunning and original metaphore i just sighed out loud - so beautiful! Anyways i hope you feel better soon though it sounds like you're almost there ^_^

[identity profile] 2007-12-21 09:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah sorry! It's all their new manager's fault, I'm sure, but just wait until they've got the new album out!

And I'm so sorry I haven't updated Redrawing the Lines in, like, two months ;__; I've had some serious writer's block. But I'm breaking through it, and the last part is going to be the longest one by far. I'm just trying to make the ending come out right ;-)

[identity profile] 2007-12-22 01:10 am (UTC)(link)
They have a new manager? you know i always wished they could have an awesome manager that suited them and that they really got along well with like The Academy Is... or My Chemical Romance. I hope the new one is good for them *even if he is depriving us of their awesomeness for a little while* I'm sure their new album will be awesome, different but awesome XD And don't worry about the story hun i know what it's like to have the deadly writers block I'm happy to wait for as long as it takes ^_^

[identity profile] 2007-12-22 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
Well yeah, that was Korean Tom Cruise, but he just basically quit and now they have a new tour manager, ya know?

Thanks for the understanding; I'm working on delivering as soon as I can :-)

[identity profile] 2007-12-22 01:33 pm (UTC)(link)
*tosses hair dramatically* how could he quit on them!? *sighs* ah well fingers crossed the new one does a good job. collies XD

[identity profile] 2008-01-05 03:02 am (UTC)(link)
SDKFHSDFJ I love you for this.

I had barricade for the show also, but I ran out of film. Reading your story makes me remember everything that happened that night.
