For just when I thought it couldn't get any better for me, something exciting happened, out of the blue on Thursday night...an email from Salem, asking me to contact his tour manager to arrange to meet him on Saturday!!
So I made my contact and it was agreed that I would meet Salem before his show on Saturday night. Here's my backstage pass....!
I was completely touched by his appreciation of the work I've done with Planet Salem; I'm just so happy that Salem enjoys reading my blog and that he has made it part of his official website.
Salem also introduced me to Robert, David and Nisse from his excellent live band - it was great to meet you guys!
Before leaving, I asked if I could take Salem's picture as I needed evidence that I met him :) he thought this was quite funny, he mimicked me and said "I need evidence!" anyway here it is! (I've edited the picture a little bit as the dressing room had mirrors all the way round so the photo looked a little surreal to start with).
I will post my full review of the concert tomorrow, as I'm feeling very tired and need to get some sleep. "I can't sleep when all this spinning round" was a most appropriate lyric for me on Saturday night, as I hardly slept at all on Saturday night from all the excitement of meeting Salem and then seeing the greatest concert I've ever been to.
So I'll catch up with all the news tomorrow and there's a few more things I need to mention.
See you tomorrow! :)
