Savage Garden Concert Reviews
Happy Birthday 2 Me!
He stopped... stared... and slowly read my sign.. " What is he thinking? Is it too much? Corny? will he like it. Oh God, tell me! Please...pick me.." He looked right at me, I was begging, pleading with my eyes. I want this more then anything in the world. He smiled at me and then it happens. My life was changed forever, he pointed at me. " me??? me???" I started crying uncontrollably. He nodded yes and gestured for me to get up on the stage. I was finally going to get a photo taken with Darren that was going to turn out and look really good! Hugs, finally, hugs that I have never received! " Go Girl, get up there!" I was crying uncontrollably. Wendy helped moved me over the guards were waiting. That chair was small, the stage was high up, oh god! I laughed thinking about the Savage Addicts getting a crane for me! heee... Darren reached for my hand and helped me up. It took like 2-3 guards to get that big rump of mine up there! They pushed me up! I was still holding my sign, Boa and camera. Tears danced down my face. Darren gave me an instant hug. " Its it really your birthday?" He asked me. " Yes," I cried. " Happy Birthday." " Thank you." " What's your name?" " Victoria." Crying, and still crying. " Give it up for Victoria, It's her Birthday!" The audience cheered. I was smiling. Wow, what a sight the boys and girls have from this stage! Glowing sticks waved back at me. I cried. " Thank you Darren.." I kept saying this over and over. He took a photo with me but the flash didn't come off. I asked the guard to do it again. Actually I shouted and I felt bad. But I was right. It didn't turn off. After my experience with the Star Lounge, I wanted to make sure this photo was going to turn out! He asked if my friend here can take one, I said, Yes, Best friend. Darren listened to Darren while he talked to her. It was cute! We took one with the audience instead, that was cool. It came out, looks kinda distant, but cool! he then told me to go over to Daniel. Oh boy! I went over to him mumbling " Come here Cutie Patootie!" " You are the one I really want to me. I love you." Instant hug from behind, I wrapped my arms around his neck I heard him say, " I love you to." I practically jumped on his back. Darren came over and took a photo and Then Daniel turned around and kisses me. It was sweet. Yes, on the lips. I hate to brag, but Damn it was nice! I was caught up in a world of our own! Of course I dreamt about doing this with Darren for years, for this to happen with Daniel, and me It was a surprise. Feelings I didn't even know that I had for him were there. He is beautiful! Poor Daniel he tried to keep his balance, play his guitar and hold me. It was cute. Sorry if I squeezed you to tight Daniel. Daniel is hot oh yeah. Then, I felt a tug on my arm. It was Darren, I smiled and turned around and waved at Lee and Ben, " I love you all." I followed him across the stage, he asked for another hug and I gave him one. He held me tight and close and I could just rest my head on his shoulder. He smelled unbelievably good. I felt safe and secured here in his arms. My arms were wrapped around his neck and I was trying to keep my balance so the only thing I could do was brush my leg up against him trying to hang on, it was funny! Gosh I could only imagine how I looked!! haaaa.... Then he asked for a kiss and I kissed him on the cheek. WOW! It was great!! I thanked him. I moved off the stage. The audience cheered me on, through the whole time I was up there, especially when I had my Daniel moment. Darren held my hand high in the air facing the audience, repeating my name I swinged my boa around and shake my bon bon! HAHAAAA. I am laughing about it now! Man did that Drink kicked in and I didn't even drink that much! HAHAAA. I had a blast up there! I just love being on the stage! It must be the dancer I am! :) I moved off the stage and the security was trying to get me back in the audience but I thanked them and gave instant hugs. They were so cool! I went back to Wendy and I fell instantly in my Best friend's arms. I told her " He kissed me on the lips... Oh my... Darren smelled good. Thank you. I love you. You are my best friend...." I cried and cried and she hugged me and held me. It was nice! Darren finished singing the song. This was all beautiful. My dream came true! Reading others hold me experience, crying and loving their moments. It was mine that came true to! I wished myself a Happy Birthday. The rest of the concert rocked!!! When the concert was over. People wished me a happy Birthday, congratulated me. My friends came over and cheered me on; my mum came over with tears in her eyes and my sister to. They hugged me and said that they were cheering me on the whole time up there in their section. My mom said how my sister said " Mom, Vickie is going on stage. He picked her! Go Vickie!!! That's my sister!!" My mom cried and said, " Go, go girl! Go up there! What is he doing? What is she doing? Oh my, she is dancing again! Oh my! He hugged her!! Etc." It was cute when my mom was telling me jokingly " I was thinking what are those men doing to my daughter?!?" heee.. I was laughing. I was so happy that my mum and sister were there. I wished I could have sat with them. But, I bought there tickets after I found out more went on sale. Wendy stayed over night just to get these front row tickets for us, knowing it was my birthday and that we wanted to sit together. I remember calling her at Wal-Mart on my cell phone talking with her when she was in line. Then the next morning when she called me on her way home and told me how she got front row I cried! I was so happy!!! This concert was awesome. We jammed, cheered, clapped, danced, I thank God for letting my dream come true and letting me have this grand opportunity. I Thank Savage Garden for letting me have my moment of fame with them and making my dream become a reality and proving that yes, Dreams do come true. Also, for my best friend Wendy, who did so much for me and letting me have this moment come alive that I have wanted for a very long time. Now, I still have more... I'm sorry, I am a writer. :) So, my mum and sister Jennifer said that in her section was the Goonies section... There was couples making out left and right, my sister even told them to get a hotel! Then, there were these cute fans around 13 years old screaming " woohooo.... Yeah, yeah, I love you! I love you Darren!!!" My sister was like mocking their scream, ( Later not when she was there) she still can do it today! It's so funny!!!! Then was this guy so drunk his girlfriend was laughing because he was walking up and down the rows trying to find her and he just sat down on some step. Later he found her, It was really funny!!! Then there were some guy throwing ice cubes for his girlfriend to stop yelling all crazy at Ben! It was all fun and games! My mum was loving it actually she said she had the Goonies wild side!! I left the place with my mum and sister. I went and said Hello to Anna. I handed her my folder I made for Darren, it was a Hairstyle book. I worked really hard on. I hope he liked it. It was great!! From People will still congratulating me on my way out. Wishing me a happy birthday, taking photos with me and of them, it was so cool! I kept thanking strangers, giving hugs, and thanking them for coming to my party. :) Day dreaming, floating on cloud 9, smiling, crying, laughing, gosh I have never felt so alive in my life, well, except the time with my oldest sister had a baby. This had to have been the next best thing that has happen to me ever. Numerous times I have given up a chance to greet Savage Garden personally, hugging, taking photos, so that I can help out another fan. Good things come to those who wait, What goes around comes around. I believe that this night was meant for me. It was a pay back present just for me. Maybe some of you have experience what I have and maybe some of you haven't. But, what I do know is that when you do it will be something that you will never forget. I hope and I look forward to having more moments like this to occur to others and me. More love is brought into my heart when I watch the nicest things that Savage Garden has done for friend's fans and me. Some fans are upset for kissing Daniel, some are happy for me. Some believe me and lots have cheered me on and congratulated me. But what I do know is that this was my moment. A moment that I will never forget. The best birthday ever. My family was their, my best friend, I met the guys I adore and most Savage Garden admitted that it was the best US concert they did. The others were good, but this show was fantastic! Seattle was interesting, Concord boring, LA rocked da house, San Diego was fun and enjoyable and Vegas was wild and crazy. I went to all of these and I was happy to hear that those from the BBS contributed in the INDY show. To clear things up, the patch I wore on my T-shirt was from a friend in Florida, so no, I didn't get special treatment. Also, I like to thank Wendy for the great seats she got for me. Thank you, you are my best friend in the whole wide world! You were with me in mind and spirit when I was up there and yes, Darren acknowledges that you are my BEST FRIEND!!!!!!
