My 1D experience: This is a detailed explanation of what happened when I met the boys and went to the concert two weeks ago. So if you’re interested, read on!
Ok, so as you may know, I got to go to the concert in MSG on december 3rd. ( which by the way, involved me getting on a 13 hour flight from tahiti, where I live, skipping a week of school and 8 months of work to earn money for the ticket… totally worth it )
Now here’s where it gets interesting. My lovely dad ( ily dad ) who happened to know a guy who’s friends with one of the boys’ managers was able to surprise me WITH A VIP TICKET TO THE PRIVATE MEET AND GREET IN NYC. I don’t know how to explain how I felt i pretty much just screamed and cried and rolled around on the floor and died tbh
soooooo, eight months later here i was in the frosty land of new york city
thats the store don’t go in unless u have like $10 000 to spare i s2g
03/ 12/ 12
On Monday, the 3rd, we went to pick up the tickets for the concert:
And we were literally so lucky because you know how they were sold out and the only available ones were like thousands of dollars? Well since we were in direct contact with the managers, we only had to pay $84. FOR FRONT ROW SEATS. This was my first ever concert and I got seats in section A and omg I died all over again.
As you can see, we have two tickets: That’s because my best friend who is also a huge fan was supposed to come with me but her parents changed their mind last minute and I feel so bad for her ugh. We ended up giving the ticket to Javier, the 12 year old son of my Dad’s friend, who let us stay at their place he was like k cool.
MSG 4:30 PM
The concert started at 7:30 but we got there early and there were already like 200 girls swarming around waiting for the doors to open: There was a cheering squad dressed in 1D sweatshirts, the 1D store was packed, security was walking around and I got interviewed by this girl who was making a video about how huge 1D was. And let me tell you, at this point I was pretty much bursting with excitement: My biggest dream was coming true. Not only that, I come from a country where there are like 0 fans of the boys and to be with all these people that understood me was like asdjksbcjcejabvlnckndclkb. Finally the doors opened so we could wait inside the building. My dad, Javier, his mom and I were directed to the section A waiting area and it was PACKED. Like you could barely move. We had to wait until 6:00 for Sally, the meet and greet organizer person.
Finally, at 6:00 my Dad got a phone call from Sally saying come to the left and stuff and we found her ( I was getting worried we wouldn’t find her in all these people and she’d forget about me ). She was so nice! Like all bouncy and british and cool and yeah, she was the best. We were only with about a group of 10 other people to go meet them and she started handing out yellow VIP wristbands ( I’m still wearing it ) When everyone was ready, she showed the security guard something and he let our group through the gates in front of EVERYONE waiting. Of course, it was a private meet and greet and no one knew about it so all the girls were like screaming: ” Who are THEY? Where are they going??? ” But pretty soon they were out of sight. Sally led us into hallways, we took two escalators and just so you know backstage MSG is really classy and pretty. At one point I shouted ” I love you Sally!” And she was like ” Awwww! Prepare to say that to the boys! ” She is literally the sweetest person ever how can i marry her. She stopped us in some kind of hallway that led to a ton of doors and told us to wait there. I was with Javier, who was meeting them too and his mom mary who was coming to take pictures. We waited about 15 minutes and I was soooo nervous: I had no idea what to expect, all I knew was the boys were somewhere behind one of these doors and I was SHAKING. lol also Javier was just chatting up a bunch of security guards and asking to take pictures with them but they were like dude i don’t wanna end up on twitter. That’s the hallway, with us waiting ( I’m the one in blue )
Oh, and a sushi tray was brought past us and disappeared in the hallway. ( I assumed it was for us but noooo ) After what seemed like three years, we were told to go on and we were brought in front of one of the rooms at the end of the hallway. Then, we were lined up: A security guard explained we were going to meet them in groups, a group being the people you came with so our group was Javier, Mary and I. We were third in line.
I was desperately trying to look past the people in front to see if the boys were in there but it was too narrow and I couldn’t. So I just stared ahead waiting for someone to come out. And guess who did???
if you guessed paul you’re right and you need to explain to me how u could possibly have guessed that like wow
He just like came out of a back room and walked pass us into the room where I couldn’t see him any more. And theeeeen
All I could see was a mop of curls flying past and following Paul and he said a little ” Hello! ” I’m getting emotional while typing this nope nope n o p e
Then a random security guard came out then Zayn.
And by then I couldn’t make out who was after because I was crying so hard and my vision got all blurry.
Paul got to the front of the line and a security guard started explaining we could only get one autograph per person which got me really mad because I promised my friend ( the one who didn’t get to come ) to bring her back a signed album. Javier tried negociating but he was like NOOOOOO.
And since was right in front of me I was like yo paul haha he didn’t even see me at first but then he just looked down and was like oh hey
Then the first group went up to meet them. Once they did, I could see clearly into the room and there they were: Standing in a semi circle all smiley and real. I was shaking like I’ve waited so long for this moment and now that it was there I just couldn’t-
k then paul was like go on!
So I started walking towards them but it felt more like gliding because I couldn’t even feel my legs anymore and that’s when my brain stopped functioning: I literally stopped in front of Niall and Harry ( they were the closest ) and was incapable to walk any farther, or talk, or think, or breathe.
All I could really do was stare at Harry. Let me just say, that boy is perfect: I just gaped at his perfect curls, his cross necklace, the bird tattoo peeking in from under his white shirt, his really long skinny legs, his hand and asajbdejwbjfkawef lk .
( By the way: While this was happening, Javier was casually chatting with Zayn about the concert and high fiving them )
i dONT WANNA TAKL ABOUT IT
look at harry’s bicep duuuuude
( zayn’s hair looked really fluffy idk )
Then Mary started shaking me and asking what I wanted signed because we didn’t have much time left but I didn’t react, I didn’t even look at her, I just stared at harry. So she pulled my tmh album out of my hand and passed it to the boys so they could sign it.
When it was Harry’s turn to sign it I was just observing how perfectly his large hands glided across the CD. He then passed it to Niall and looked down at me. Now to the best moment of my entire life: Harry Edward Styles smiled at me, held out his hand, and said: ” Hello! I’m Harreh! ” My heart literally stopped like I wasn’t even able to answer ” Hi! I’m Katia ” Nope. I just shook his hand really slowly and for a really long time. Now can we just discuss how SOFT his hands are? I mean he’s said it before but they are really REALLY soft. Like the same texture as japanese cheesecake. That’s him holding out his hand to me:
Ok so Niall was the last one to sign my album so he handed it back to me with a “Here you go! ” In his perf accent so I just turned to him and looked at his flawless face and did I mention he was wearing a beanie nope, I was not prepared. I eventually looked down at his hand with the album with it but all I could see was his arm idk it was a nice looking arm. And yeah, long story short, instead of taking the CD from him I stroked his arm. Yes, I now regret embarrassing myself in front of Niall Horan. ( he ended up handing the cd to Mary cause I wasn’t taking it )
Then it was picture tiiiiime!!! The boys all like squeezed into a tight Direction One pack and I was just like ok, where am I gonna go I can’t squeeze in there… So I walked over to be next to Niall and SECOND BEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE: When he saw me, he stepped away from Harry and held out his arm: ” You wanna?… ” He asked motioning towards the empty space between him and that idiot styles. Harry just smiled at me and extended his other arm and I got in the middle and died all over again. During the picture all I could think was: ” I’m touching Harry Styles’ back. ” I wasn’t touching Niall because I didn’t manage to squeeze my arm behind him so it’s just like awkwardly hanging in front in the picture.
hahaha look at zayn hes so amused at javier im crying
Me having a minor freak out and 4/5 of One Direction probably wondering if they should call for help. ( plus Zayn focusing on the camera lookin’ cool )
Then we just kind of left. ( with Zayn smiling at us in the background )
Oh and if you aren’t convinced I’m the weirdest person ever yet, just before walking out the door I like spinned around and yelled ” WHAT ABOUT THE SUSHI?! ” The security guards laughed so hard. Turns out it wasn’t for us after all.
This was me, back in the hallway, crying my eyes out and smelling my hand because Harry touched it. Oh yeah, and in case you didn’t notice I didn’t say one word during the whole encounter but oh well… one of the security guards just stared at me on the floor and was like: ” She gonna be ok? ” So Mary was like: “Yeah I think so. ” ( i was not ok )
After that, we had to go into the venue to get our seats so I changed into my ” I’ve got that one thing ” shirt and Mary left Javier and I go inside. The thing is, since we were backstage, they made us go out not by the main entrance… But where the singers come out of. So you can imagine… 20 000 people inside, waiting for 1D to come out and a girl with a kid comes out instead and they have no idea who we are. The people near the entrance started screaming and holding their hands out so we could high five them even though they didn’t know we were so I was just like still crying and barely being able to think straight but Javier was just like:
The shirt I wore:
Then we found our seats, which were REALLY close to the stage. We still had a lot of time before anyone came on stage so I started looking through the pictures Mary had taken and crying even harder. Well this guy behind us looked over my shoulder and saw the pictures so he just like screamed: YOU MET ONE DIRECCCCTION???! ” And I was like yeah… So he pretty much shoved the girl that was with him in my face and shouted at me like: ” OMG HOW DID YOU DO IT SHE NEEDS TO MEET THEM HELP A DIRECTIONER OUT SHE CAN’T EVEN BREATHE RIGHT NOW PLLEEEEEAAASE “
«< pretty much
Then he noticed my wristband and demanded I give it to them so they could go backstage and meet them. So I had to kindly explain that I would have loved to but it wouldn’t work because you have to have your name on the list and it was over anyway. But yeah, they were cool.
At one point, everyone started screaming and we found out it was Perrie coming down and going backstage so I ran over and managed to catch a glimpse of her and she is so pretty i just ugh
Then ed came on and he was amazing and i died and lets not get into that
Once he came off stage there was like 45 min. of random background songs before the boys FINALLY came on stage, I was seriously so frustrated because I missed them already. But then the opening thingie started with the countdown and I was hyperventilating, it was sooooo intense i s2g
And when they did come on stage, lots of people in section A ran to the front of the stage to get closer ( the others weren’t floor level ) and I was like right on the edge of the stage and aaaaaaah they were so frickin’ close and I started screaming. But then a bunch of MSG security guards came and were like: ” EVERYONE BACK TO THEIR SEATS COME ON MOOOVE! ” So people were slowly getting back to their seats but I was still there, like I couldn’t care less, I was so close and everything and then… Harry looked down and he apparently recognized me because he smiled that perfect smile and I was dying- and just at that moment that obnoxious security person grabbed my arm and was like: ” GET BACK TO YOUR SEAT! ” And I was like really angry because I was having a moment with Harry so I kind of maybe possibly shoved him out of my way
Apparently that didn’t make him very happy bc i ended up getting ” escorted ” back to my seat by Mr. Cranky. And we hated each other. Like, during the whole show, he would pass in front of me and if my TOE was slightly crossing the white line on the floor he’d be like: ” back to your seat “
And the concert was the most amazing thing ever, the twitter questions was one of my favorite parts. I’m not gonna post the pics Javier took cause there are way better quality ones but I do have a pretty cool story to share…
If you go to this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTUwW_men48&feature=youtube_gdata_player
And skip to about 3:00 you can see Liam kicking around a soccer ball one of the fans threw at him.
Well weyheeey look at this:
I actually didn’t catch it at first because like 200 girls dove to the floor and someone else caught it so I was like oh well too bad and continued watching the boys being perfect. About thirty minutes later, Javier was like: hey Katia KATIA! So I looked at him and he was. Handing. Me. The. Ball. Apparently he had seen it roll onto the floor and being the sneaky football player he is, retrieved it. It’s now chilling in my room, blessed by Liam Payne’s foot.
After the concert was over, our ears weren’t functioning for about an hour.
So there you have it! Message me if you have any questions yay!
Side note: For all of you who dream of meeting 1D one day but think you never will… Don’t give up hope. I promise you’ll find a way and it will be amazing and you will die and never be able to go back to your normal life, ever again.
