Things to scream?
Places to go afterwards?
Any of the above. I just need to talk about it to try and contain my excitment....
Banners? For me - It would have to say somthing really worthwhile, I think you would get fed up holding it.
"Pearl Jam Rock" is going to have very little effect on the band....
"I'm going to Astoria and I'm sick of feeling guilty, let's rock!"
i just got my train tickets through this morning... super fast eh!!!
its now beginning to sink in that i'm actually going!!!
lets keep this thread going as a meet and greet for UK jammers ... although recognising the Scots in their kilts aint gonna be too hard, as for the rest of us... the big fucking smiles will be a sign that we are fans..
Right, don't forget we're comming from many places: France, Holand, Denemark and even Israel! I like the pub for meeting, how long should we be there before the show?
And I'll be with a German. I will be in that general area pretty much all day long.. in the pub maybe all day. Not on the beer all day though! I want to be totally sober
in 2001, a bunch of UK fans got together here:http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/14/145/Royal_George/Charing_Cross_Road
now, it aint the best pub in the world but its bang next to the astoria so there will be fans hovering all over the place. i intend to meet some friends in there - we can also keep tabs on the venue and just bask in the charing cross road pearl jam frenzy. i also want to look up at the astoria sign saying 'PEARL JAM' as many times as possible during the day..
i'm going, by the way. though i can't quite believe it.
now i feel excited.. scots in kilts.. and pearl jam
Now this is what I'm talking about! I'm up for a little bit of basking. I'll be flying over, dumping a bag somewhere, meeting a mate and then basking.
During the bask... is there something we can wear so that we know who we are? Red, blue and white wrist band? Or somethign easier to find. PJ tatoo carved into our foreheads?
I'm just imagining going into a paper shop and being sevred by someone who is "In the know!"
if you're excited now wait until you see us
i wont be getting pissed before hand... just 4 or 5 pints to get me in the right frame of mind
although we'll be hitting the town afterwards wont we?
i'm sure there are some great bars in and around this area... we'll have a fucking magic time :cool:
yeah if the concert finishes around 1030
youll be able to get in around one hours drinking before closing on a thursday
have a wild time!
Did not you all hear it was canceled?
p.s.: what was the way you got your tickets, won them, internet, phone, what worked?
Thanks. I'm glad the normal way also got some real fans in (and their friend from Germany who is also a dedicated fan ) . But I agree, it's not fair to sell it 3 minutes before the official time.
surely there are plenty of bars in and around that area that have 24 hour drinking licences now since its fully LEGAL now in England to open as long as you want if getting the license approved.
Will do a bit of investigation to find out as know a fair few people from london areas and let you all know.
Still not sure what i'll be doing on the day. Staying at Farringdon as got a good price on a travelodge there. Not far from Kings Cross and if needbe I may head back there as know a cracking irish bar that is open usually until around 3am or so (although its usually been a friday or saturday when i've been there).
