Papa Roach rocked the roof off the Civic Hall!
Ok, since it's been about 3 weeks since the guys kicked off their UK tour in Wolverhampton, I guessed it was about time I wrote a little something about how one amazing gig kicked off a week of Papa Roach madness. Treated me and my nephew to VIP passes and it was one of the best experiences of my life!
After receiving our passes from Justin, we waited in a tiny room (with a CLOSED bar might I add, which became the focus point of our amusement for the best part of an hour). We were finally escorted to the soundcheck which was so surreal and awesome at the same time. Jacoby was great, talking to us between songs, and I loved being right at the stage (no barriers) singing and dancing away.
The forbidden bar haha
After waiting in line for another 30/40 mins and consuming a whole box of Smints I was completely buzzing as I went in to meet the guys. Poor Coby asked me my name and I just blurted out, 'Can I have a hug?' which he obliged haha. Anyway Jerry, Tobin and Tony were just so lovely messing about (Jerry trying to spank Tony) and I was still talking crap and jumping about so we had our photos taken individually. Then onto the show....OH HELL YEAH! They rocked the roof off the joint! Jacoby hauled himself up onto the balcony and walked the whole way round during IATYTILY - amazing!! Loved hearing Blood Brothers, Dead Cell, Had Enough, Change or Die...so experiencing this, my first Papa Roach gig, sparked off my spontaneous mentality...
