2011/07/11 – Madrid, Spain (REPORT)

Paramore are my favorite band since I was 13 years old, aka for 6 years, 2005. I’m a singer and my dream always was to sing with them on stage.

Paramore came for the first time to my country in July 11th, 2011. But it was in Madrid and I’m from Barcelona. So I had to travel 600 km (370 miles more or less).

I slept in the line 120 hours, 5 days to be in the first line. Don’t get me wrong, it was AMAZING and I met a lot of wonderful people, it was the best week of my life.

The day of the show I made a cardboard arrow to point me in the moment of Misery Business. At 6:00 pm, we went to the M&G (I won 1 in the PFC), I couldn’t even believe it, I was gonna meet my idols, I was freaking out! We came, and then they appeared. I told them we’ve been waiting for 5 days in the line, they didn’t even believed it, Jeremy was totally surprised, he mentioned that I told to him in an interview. I showed them my arrow and ask them please to make my dream come true (as too many people there). Hayley said, ok, I’ll do what I can. I told Taylor we came from Barcelona, he said he loves Gaudi, and I invited to him to come and eat a Paella haha. Then we left and enter to the area, 6.000 people there, woah was amazing. I cried with every song, and Jeremy couldn’t stop show me his tongue haha Hayley also was looking me a lot. Then the moment started, and I took out my arrow and pointed to me, my friends helped me screaming and pointing me. And then Hayley pointed me with her finger and said “We want that girl, we met her earlier, she’s cool” I couldn’t even believe it. The security guys took me out of the crowd, then i runned to the stage, and Hayley said “Look at that” he was in love with my tights, she told me in the M&G haha. And then another guy come too. He said he wanna dance and I wanted to sing, Hayley gave me the microphone saying “This is the key of the universe, when you have this in your hands, you are the most powerful person in the whole world, are you ready?” I couldn’t believe it. Then I started to sing, headbang, dance… I went with Jeremy to headbang and sang with Hayley. When we finished Hayley hugged me and said she loved it. Then I told her “I love you” and she told me “I love you too”. I went down to the stage, and I started to cry like a LOT. Too many people came to me to say Congrats, and tell me I was amazing up there, took pictures with me and even ask me for autographs. It was the BEST day of my whole life.
