2nd July 2005: Philadelphia

What an amazing day! Arrived at the concert venue at 3am, but they weren't letting you within a street of the place til 6am so there were a few people hanging about - met a guy from NJ and we got chatting and since he had his spot all sorted out I decided I would follow him. Which turned out to be a really good move cause not only did we get front row in the normal peoples section he chatted to a policewomen on duty and she got us both a pass to get into the VIP pit, which was directly in front on the stage, so spent most of the show about 10 rows from the stage - WOW!!
