Photos from Phoenix last night. Still not over how incredible they were. I was right up the front at the barrier in front of Christian who looked at me quite a few times during the show because I was smiling like an idiot (lol), which in turn made him smile a few times too (yay!). At the very end of the show I nodded at him as if to say thank you and he nodded back which was the best. Thomas also stood on the barrier right in front of me which meant that I got some (non reciprocated) hand holding action and super creepy and totally accidental (I swear) crotch shots. They had an amazing light show with some really pretty backdrops that really suited the songs they were playing. Still wish I had stayed back to meet them, but oh well. Maybe next time.
PHOENIX WERE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
we ended up being front row - we touched thomas, christian blew us a kiss, and laurent waved at us! we initially caught the first setlist that was thrown into the crowd, but it got snatched out of my friend’s hand, so the security guard (whom recognised us from vampire weekend) took the second setlist from the stage and gave it to us :’)
after the show, we waited around and eventually met christian! he was so lovely - he was saying we were a great audience and when I complimented on his boots, he said ‘ah, thank you! they are great for horse riding!’ hahaha.
While christian was taking photos with other fans, my friend and I were discussing how we had to leave in 5 minutes to catch the train. he overheard us talking and was like, ‘oh, you have to leave in 5 minutes? I will try to go get the others’, so he went back into the building and thomas came out and met us! I couldn’t believe he was doing that for us. thomas was so lovely too. everything was just lovely. top night.
