Madonna, 2008-09-14 - Parque da Bela Vista, Lisbon

Madonna time "Sticky & Sweet Tour".

Sun, September 14, 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal @ Parque da Bela Vista

After watching Steve Hogarth last September 5 now (9 days after) is time for Madonna. The name of the tour is "Sticky & Sweet Tour".
It was an amazing show in Parque da Bela Vista with Robyn playing before.

Some people (fans) arrived at Parque da Bela Vista 2 days before (Friday).

I arrive there early in the morning (Sunday, day of the show). I had a "Hot Ticket". A special ticket with some presents and the right to get in first.

Here it is a photo when I went to Parque da Bela Vista on "metro":

In the morning when I arrived about 6h40 am I decided to make a list to the Hot Tickets members. Made the list till 12:00 pm on the Box Office where we got our tickets and wristbands. About 60 people.
As soon as we have our ticket and wristband we went to Gate 3 a little on the right of the right regular entrance.

The Hot Ticket was 200 euros (regular price was 60 Euros). We get in 15 minutes early than the rest of the regular people.
By the way in Lisbon they sold 400 Hot Tickets. 400 times 200 Euros = 80.000 Euros.
A curiosity in Wembley, London, 3 days before were sold 1200 HT. 1200 times 200 euros = 240.000 Euros (+ or -).

We had 1 singer before Madonna.

The singer was Robyn. She played for 32 minutes.

Small video I made of Robyn:

Robyn-With Every Heartbeat, Lisbon, PT, 2008-09-14
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jo_kipQD760
And the video:


Almost time for Madonna.

Finally was time for Madonna. She started the show at 21h19 and played for 113 minutes.

What an amazing show it was. I will write here the setlist:

CANDY SHOP
BEAT GOES ON
HUMAN NATURE
VOGUE
INTO THE GROOVE
HEART BEAT
BORDERLINE
SHE'S NOT ME
MUSIC
SPANISH LESSON
MILES AWAY
LA ISLA BONITA
ROMANIAN FOLK MUSICAL INTERLUDE
YOU MUST LOVE ME

Encore:
4 MINUTES

I hope you like the photos and the video.

After watching for the first time Marillion last July 26 now is the first time also I saw Steve Hogarth live (the voice of Marillion). The name of the tour is "H Natural, European Tour 2008".
It was an amazing little show in a very small place "Santiago Alquimista" in Lisbon. My first time there.

I arrive there in the afternoon. And saw Steve Hogarth rehearsing.

Finally was time for Steve Hogarth. He played for 133 minutes.

Lisbon Calling, 2008-07-26 - Pavilhão Atlântico, Lisbon

Lisbon Calling - July the 26th, 2008

Lisbon Calling was a special concert with 4 bands of the 80's.

Went to this event to see one of my favourite singers ever "Meat Loaf". It was the 1st time I saw him live. Meat Loaf is amazing in live shows and this time I was there to see that.
Also on this event the amazing "Marillion", "The Stranglers" and the very funny "B-52s".

"Sat, July 26, 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal @ Pavilhão Atlântico"

I saw 4 bands.

Marillion was the first band playing. They played for 57 minutes. It was an amazing show. Steve Hogarth is so amazing to fans. I got 2 picks from Steve Hogarth. One of the picks he put in his forehead on the show. I met a Bon Jovi friend Mónica Leiria who is fanatic for Marillion and Steve Hogarth. She told me about a solo show Steve Hogarth will have about 41 days after this one in "Santiago Alquimista" here in Lisbon. I went there (will tell the story later on the next post).

I will write here the Marillion setlist:

1. You're Gone
2. The Other Half
3. Beautiful
4. Easter
5. Afraid Of Sunlight
6. No One Can
7. Cover My Eyes
8. King of Sunset Town
9. Neverland


The Stranglers was the 2nd band playing. They played for 53 minutes. Not bad.

The B-52s was the 3rd band playing. They played for 58 minutes. They were very fun. The vocalist is very funny and the 2 band girls were also there.

Finally was time for Meat Loaf. He played for 109 minutes. An amazing show. Finally I could see one of my favourite artists ever Meat Loaf. We were told not to take photos during the show. So I only took some photos at the beginning and at the end. The name of the tour was behind stage "Casa de Carne Tour" strange name specially in portuguese!!! I bought some t-shirts and a cap (Seize The Night 2007).


I will write here the Meat Loaf setlist:

1. Intro (Tribal Chant)

Within Temptation, 2008-07-11 - Optimus Alive, Lisbon

Optimus Alive - July the 11th, 2008

My first Optimus Alive festival.

Went to this festival only to see one of my favourite bands ever "Within Temptation". They are a dutch metal band that I love. The members of the band are so nice with the fans, believe me. I already talked to almost all members of the band (except Robert) and have photos also with the band (except Robert) this was in March 2007 at Paradise Garage here in Lisbon.

I saw 4 bands. 3 before the main event.

"Fri, July 11, 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal @ Passeio Marítimo de Algés"

Kumpania Algazarra was the first band playing. They played for 79 minutes.

John Butler Trio was the 2nd band playing. They played for 104 minutes. I love them. It was the first time I hear them and they were really awsome. I think is folk, or blues what they play.

Bob Dylan was the 3rd singer playing. He played for 106 minutes. First time I saw Bob Dylan. He is really old. He didn't talk to the fans while on stage. But all the great songs where there.

Finally was almost time of Within Temptation. They played for 58 minutes.

I will write here the setlist:

INTRO + JILLIAN
THE HOWLING
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
STAND MY GROUND
THE HEART OF EVERYTHING
OUR SOLEMN HOUR

In Brussels Airport (Zaventem area, Luchthaven Aeroport) I got the metro to King Baudouin Stadium (Stade Roi Baudouin) in the Heisel area of Brussels.
Near the Stadium stays the "Kinepolis Bruxelles". This is a huge building with many cinemas.

I arrive there still on the afternoon.

It was time to have a number of the Backstage and to wait. I wait the rest of the day.

Day of show, the 14th of June.

Time to get the tickets.

We had 1 band before the main event.

The band playing was Nalpin. They played for 43 minutes. They were good. I like their sound.

Finally was time for Bon Jovi. They appeard at 20h30 and played for 142 minutes.

What an amazing show it was. I will write here the setlist and then talk about the show:

LOST HIGHWAY

RAISE YOUR HANDS
ONE WILD NIGHT
I'LL SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD / Rockin' All Over The World / Start Me Up

After the show I went to an "After Party" in a local bar in Brussels by metro and then by foot.
It was presented by "Forever Bon Jovi and Rock Classic".
Free entrance.
With a free drink and I could win a maxi CD of "Whole Lot Of Leavin'", but I didn't won. I receive also 2 different posters of Bon Jovi in Brussels in dutch and in french. I brought many posters.
They show some Bon Jovi concerts on a giant screen. It was awsome. Many friends of mine were also there.

After the party when the bar closed almost at the end of the night I caught a taxi to the airport. Time to go home.

The plain from Brussels was at 12:20 (15th of June). One stop in Barajas Airport, Madrid at 14:35. From Barajas, Madrid at 15:50 to Lisbon at 16:05 (minus 1 hour than Madrid).

I hope you like the videos.

Next I will write the post of Glasgow on the 21st of June in Hampden Park Stadium. I was there.

Bon Jovi, 2008-06-07 - Ireland, Punchestown

And after Vienna it's Dublin time.

Sat, Jun 07, 2008 in Punchestown, Ireland @ Punchestown Racecourse

I went on a plane on the day before, the 6th of June at 10:35 am in Aer Lingus. I arrive on Dublin Airport at 13:20.
On Lisbon airport I did my first mistake. I change 200 Euros to Pounds. In dublin Airport I found out that hey use Euros so I have to change the Pounds back to Euros. Of course with this I lost 40 euros.
In Dublin Airport I got a bus to the centre of Dublin. I went looking for buses to Punchestown and I did not found any. So I got a taxi, I payed 90 Euros I think. The cab driver was really nice and took me to Punchestouwn Racecourse. I think I arrive there about 18:00. The weather was not good but it didn't rain.

It was time to have a number of the Backstage club and to wait. I wait the rest of the day.

Day of show, the 7th of June.

Time to get the tickets.

Another portuguese friend was there with me, my friend Ana Melro.

We had 3 bands before the main event.

The first band playing was DC Tempest. They played for 22 minutes. They were good. I like their sound.

Kid Rock was the 2nd singer playing. He played for 67 minutes. I loved him. He was awsome.

Here it is the official video of Kid Rock called: All Summer Long.



Razorlight was the 3rd band playing. They played for 54 minutes. I don't like them. The sound was very boring.

Finally was time for Bon Jovi. They appeard at 8h30 pm and played for 155 minutes.

What an amazing show it was. I will write here the setlist and then talk about the show:

LOST HIGHWAY

I went on a plane on the day before, the 3rd of June at 01:30 am in Sky Europe. I arrive on Vienna Airport at 06:00 am.
At 06:39 I went on the OBB train from "Flugh.Wien Schwechat" (Vienna Airport) to "Wien Mitte" (Center of Vienna). I arrive there at 07:04 am. 3€40 the ticket.
From "Wien Mitte" at 07:17 am by metro to "Wien Meidling" another 1€70.

I caught the train at 9:18 am and arrived at Ebreichsdorf at 9:49 am.
From the Ebreichsdorf train station to the place of the concert I caught a taxi. I payed a fixed price of 5 or 7 or 10 Euros. I don't remember right now.

At 10:20 am I was already on the concert place:
- Magna Racino (Racino Platz, Ebreichsdorf).

It was time to have a number of the Backstage club and to wait. I wait all day. I slept on a friends car. It rained a lot on that night. Everyone was on the cars.

On the morning of Wednesday, the day of the show all the cars started to arrive and to go to a dirty camp on the right side of the concert place on the other side of a road.

Time to get the tickets:

Almost time to get in.

Almost time the the first band:

We had 2 bands before the main event.

The first band playing was PBH Club. They played for 31 minutes.

I love the show. the 2nd time I saw Bon Jovi in Austria. The first was in Innsbruck in 2006/05/30.

It was amazing to hear the songs "Complicated", "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead / Glory Days / Mercy", "Garageland", "I Got The Girl" and "Any Other Day".

To hear Glory Days from Bruce Springsteen was awsome.

Here are some videos (4) I made of Bon Jovi in Vienna (hope you will love them):

After the show I went with some friends to the car to try to get out of there and to go to the train station in Ebreichsdorf.
There was a big confusion on the car park and I took about 4 hours to get out of there and to get to the train station. It was crazy.

I caught the train from Ebreichsdorf to "Wien Meidling".
From "Wien Meidling" by metro to "Wien Mitte".
After 08:39 I went on the OBB train from "Wien Mitte" (Center of Vienna) to "Flugh.Wien Schwechat" (Vienna Airport).

I was so tired in Vienna with the rain that I went to the airport really early. I arrived to the airport more or less at 10:00 am. And stay there all day till I caught the plain at 21:30. And arrived in Lisbon at 23:55.
I only stay in Lisbon for a few hours because I had to catch another plain at 10:35 am (Friday, 6th of June) to Dublin (that story will be later in another post).

I hope you like the 4 videos.

Next is Dublin on the 7th of June. I was there.

Bon Jovi, 2008-06-01 - Spain, Barcelona

Let's continue with the story of the Barcelona show. I will write about the other Bon Jovi shows in other posts.

"Sun, Jun 01, 2008 in Barcelona, Spain @ Olympic Stadium (Estadi Olímpic)"

After Bon Jovi playing at the Rock In Rio in Lisbon I went home. To take a bath, eat something. I save the Lisbon photos on my PC and maybe rest a little.

I think I got up at 6 am to be in the airport at 8 am. I went to Barcelona. I arrive there at 12. Before I catch the plain in Lisbon I met a portuguese fan from the North with her father who were in Rock In Rio and also went to Barcelona to see Bon Jovi again, just like me. Well, it was a very enjoyable trip as you can imagine. Talking about Bon Jovi all the way. When we arrive to Barcelona the mother of the girl with an aunt went to pick us. So I have a ride to the Olimpic Stadium in Barcelona. The girl and I got separated on the queues because she had a VIP package and I only have the Backstage Golden circle ticket. The girl family went to the stands.

In the queues for the show I was with more portuguese friends like Rute, Tania, Gisela, Cristina and Raquel.

When we got in the stadium I went to the left side behind Rute, Cristina and Raquel.

We had 2 bands before the main event.

The first band playing was Savia. They played for 26 minutes.

No Way Out was the 2nd band playing. They played for 41 minutes.

Finally was time for Bon Jovi. They appeard close to 9 pm and played for 143 minutes.

Before Bon Jovi started the show Rute who was on my front went behind to make some videos. So I was front row again. On my left was Raquel and then Cristina.

What a great show it was. I will write here the setlist and then talk about the show:

LOST HIGHWAY
BORN TO BE MY BABY
YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME

CAPTAIN CRASH AND THE BEAUTY QUEEN FROM MARS
I'LL SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD / Rockin' All Over The World

I love the show. the 3rd time I saw Bon Jovi in Spain (twice in Barcelona and once in Madrid). The first was in Palu Sant Jordi in Barcelona in 2003/05/20, the 2nd in Estádio La Peineta in Madrid in 2003/05/22 (with "Pereza" before).

It was amazing to hear the songs "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead / Rockin' All Over The World", "Can't Help Fallin' In Love With You (Elvis Cover)" and "Hey God".

This time I was on the first row on the left side but a little far from the main stage so I have not many great photos. And this was the only show I did not make any videos.

After the show I leave the stadium with my friend Tania and we caught a bus to the center of Barcelona, to Plaza de España.
There was a crazy story when me and Tania triyed to leave the stadium. We went to several backstage stands to try to buy something and when we leave all the stadium doors were closed. You can't imagine Tania all crazy and me go all around inside the stadium to look for an open gate. Well, all closed. Then we found a guard who was with some keys and took us to a gate that he opened. Me and Tania got out with other crazy fans.
What a great adventure we had. Me and Tania went to the main plaza to try to first see if the metro or buses could take us to the airport. And nothing. We walk a little to a main road to try to catch a taxi and we could not find any.
So we decide to go back to Plaza de España and try other options. We found a hotel with a queue for taxis. Of course we went there and we stay more than 2 hours waiting for the queue to get shorter. Finally was our time, so the taxi took us to the airport finally.

Me and my friend Tania stayed in the airport for some hours to get the early plain to Lisbon. I didn't sleep a minute but my friend slept on the airport floor for some hours. I was looking for her, so no problems. Then I went to the plane alone and very early and my friend stay at the airport to get another plane a few hours later.

I hope you like the photos.

Next is Vienna on the 4th of June. I was there. My story of that show will be on the next post.
