Once upon a time I met the talented the guys from The Script without actually attending their concert. I mean, I was supposed to attend their concert, but didn’t make in time. Yes, that happened in October of 2012 while I was in LA.
I had been invited for a gathering at friend’s house along with other people and one of the girls there had an extra ticket to The Script concert later that night. While we were all there having a good time, drinking, talking, lunch was served late in the afternoon. I still had to record a recipe for my site Beets & Beats, and as soon as I finished, the girl and I ran out of the door to go to the Greek Theatre, where the concert was being held.
Too late! When we got there, the bad had just finished! Shame on us! Still, we decided to stay a little and see what would happen, since was saw their busses and a line forming in front of them. We stayed at the ned of the line, and struck a conversation. Soon, we realized that an hour passed by without nothing happening but the line getting bigger. I was like: “Should we go…? It’s been an hour…”, to which my friend replied “Let’s just wait 5 more minutes”. That’s when we looked between the busses and we saw the guys walking towards the line!
They talked, signed autographs and took pictures with every single person on that line! Mark started in our end, while Danny and Glen started the opposite way. We couldn’t believe it! I’ve been a fan of the band since 2008. There’s something in their sound and lyrics that really captivated me from day one.
Well, the guys were so cool and reachable. I took pictures with all of them, and got autographs, which I used on a giveaway I did on Beets & Beats. Mark was the first one, so he was the fastest around us two. Second, came Danny! OMG! He’s very tall and good looking. Of course I took a picture. My friend and I even talked to him what had happened that night, that we missed his concert. I guess he felt bad for us because he came back and gave each of us the tightest and longest hug I have ever received. He really squeezed me, it felt so good. Last, but not least, Glen showed up. Glen was such a cool guy, we got to talk the longest, asked him questions and everything.
For sure we had to ask when would they come to Brazil to perform since they have many fans here. They all seemed very excited with the idea but so far “we got nothing”. See what I did here? Anyway, it was an amazing night, the waiting was so worth it. I still hope one day I will see them live.
