The Robert Plant concert

The music, the sound quality, the light, the musicianship — they were all exactly how I expected. In other words: the show was great!

The event management on the other side — typical for this fucking country: a complete mess.

Firstly, due to the lack of advertising, my estimation is there were just about 2000 people there. I think it should (and could) have been at least four-five times that amount.

Then the pretty expensive VIP tickets I bought were almost useless: the seats were not numbered! We sat in other seats because the ones I presume were ours were already taken when we got there, and since there was no sign of any kind of official around, there was no way to force anybody out of any seat.

But let’s keep a bright memory about this, the show was absolutely great!

Unfortunately my friend Irina didn’t bring her camera along because she feared she won’t be allowed to bring it inside. But I’ve seen some incredible scenes inside the venue (I told you the event management was absolutely disastrous): some people not only managed to bring camcorders inside, but they were also fully equipped with tripods!

So I’ll leave you with these beautiful pictures lifted from Robert Plant’s official website. They are from a show in Greece, but they look quite similar to what we saw in Bucharest.
