Today we went to the Radio building trying to get tickets. No luck at
the boxoffice but we decided to have a drink at the bar at the corner.
While crossing the road we heard some people talking english and they were
wearing new blood laminates. We set down at a table and we suddenly
realised one of them was Melanie. My girlfriend went inside to ask them if
it was possible to get tickets. I just sat when all of a sudden Peter was standing
2 meters away from me. Without thinking I walked up to him and spook to him. I just shook
his hand and wished him goodluck at the concerts. He asked where I came from and I asked him if he was nervous for the concerts. He was and I told him I was too.
I even bothered him with us not having tickets for saturday. He said he would try.
He sat down for lunch and we had a drink.
Later I spook Melanie in the bar. She said the show in Bercy will be great with all the visuals. I wished her goodluck also.
When we left and passed his table he said Sorry no luck with the tickets.
I wished him luck. And that was it. I maybe have no tickets for tomorrow but this makes my weekend!!

Incredible story Roel! It will be a wonderful memory even if you don't have a ticket for the Radio France show.

The more I think about it the more special it gets. I wanted to ask him so much but on the other hand did not want to disturb him. He looked relaxed.
We will be at the Bercy soundcheck and concert. And go to the Radio France building tomorrow evening, just in case.
Roel, doyou know what time open the doors? what time is the show??

Nice story Roel.hope you get tickets for Saturday !

YES!! We got in!! I got a ticket from somebody who had one spare. And even my girlfriend got in when I asked the girl at the desk.
There were 8 fans without ticket and they all got in I think.
It was THE beginning of Ã memorable evening!!

Things just keep getting better and better on this forum! I am absolutly tickled silly for my fellow Lunatics either going to concerts or getting a chance encounter with PG & Co!!
Keep the good vibes coming pack, we love it!

Roel, somehow you have been blessed with the PG Good Luck Fairy. Did you do a magic spell or something?
Roel21 March 2010 at 3:59pmPosts: 56 (0 today)Status: offline
Well my PG luck ran out today. I expected to see him in the Louvre today but no
i'm having a extremely amazing weekend so far and so lucky I can afford this.
Thanks for the enthousiastic reactions.
