It is so funny how life can surprise you sometimes. It was just a regular sunday and I was at church telling my friend Eveline that my boss asked me if I wanted to have her Justin Timberlake tickets. I told her she was crazy for not going, but didn’t hesitate to say YES. I wanted to go to the Demi Lovato concert last month as a ”first concert” experience for Eveline. Due to circumstance we didn’t see Demi, so I told her to join me to this unexpected JT concert. I took the car and off we went to Amsterdam Ziggo dome.
We had the usual fun car ride and told her how happy and blessed I felt to be able to just do these kinds of spontaneous things. We arrived there right on time and we’re so happy with our seats. It was in the front and middle! We started off dancing our feet off with the DJ and then the support act began.
YES, GUYS WHO SING AND PLAY INSTRUMENTS”
The support act was ”The Shadowboxers”, they started playing and I thought: ”YES, LOVE THIS”. So you can imagine we danced/rocked along and how cheesy it may sound: I could see that they were noticing us! After a few songs, I was hooked – they definitely made a new fan. When the band finished they told the crowd to meet them. Coincidentally they were at our section! We didn’t hesitate and thought: okay let’s meet these awesome guys! Eveline was freaking out, because it was her first concert and you can imagine how it feels when you meet an artist you really like.
We took pictures and they indeed told me they noticed us. Eveline with her happy face said that I was a blogger and somehow they kept it in mind. We were just seated 5 minutes with Justin Timberlake on, when the bass guitarist of The Shadowboxers picked us up and asked if we wanted to go VIP. *inner fan girl freaking out*
Long story short, the rest of the evening we spend it close to the stage and it was AMAZING! Justin is such a great performer and I am so happy that I discovered a new band.
Here is a video impression:
I really want to thank my bosses again, because the last time I had a great concert was at The Chainsmokers, and that was also made possible by them!
