Last Sunday my dream came true. I saw Arctic Monkeys live.
We sang together 505 and Do I Wanna Know. Four years ago I listened to these songs for hours, feeling every word and line with my heart. On Sunday I cried during both of the songs. And they even invited Miles Kane to play with them a song about all that miles away, imagination, and arms “around my neck”. Arctic Monkeys have always been for me about London and love. Alex Turner really knows how to tug at my heartstrings.
Dreams come true in London – I have seen one of my most favorite bands in the whole music world – Depeche Mode – for the second time. And not simply somewhere, but at the amazing O2 Arena!
The O2 is totally unbelievable and amazing venue – organization and security are at the highest level, the whole venue looks like a shopping mall or an airport with shops, bars, and restaurants, everything is modern, as well as clean. Thanks to the amazing London Transport system, it took me only 20 minutes to get there from home, and at the North Greenwich Station concert goers were greeted by buskers playing Personal Jesus ❤
For the first time since I-don’t-remember-how-long-ago I’ve been in the seating area. But look at this view!!:
