Hey everybody, I just became a new member and I wanted to share the awesome first experience I got from being a part of this community.
As some of you may know LP played at Pinkpop, the Netherlands yesterday. My friend Martijn and me only went there to see LP. Suddenly a group of LP Underground members approached us and told us about all the advantages if we signed up. The greatest thing of that was ofcourse the meet & greet we were promised. We were so lucky to be at the right place in the right time because there were only 2 spots left… And we got 'em! First we thought it was a scam, some of our other friends didn’t trust it, but we decided to take the shot, because if it were true it’d be one of the best experiences of our life. We soon realised it wasn’t a scam when we got placed in a line at 7.15 PM and there were suddenly a lot more security people then there used to. We started freaking out a little from the nerves ofcourse. Still couldn’t believe it was really gonna happen. It was great to stand there with other excited LP fans.
When we finally got to the room backstage where it would happen, I got myself a nice place right in front, and then they came in and you clearly noticed a short moment of everyone gasping for breath before applauding. I got the Underground CD signed I bought shortly before, gave all the members a hand ( except for Brad who did this ehm… let’s call it a Buddhist kind of greeting? ) and we got a group picture. I wanted to ask Chester and Mike some questions and tell them how much I respected them and how inspirational I think Mike’s rapping in Hands Held High is, but I was way too nervous for that. And then they left again to prepare for the show. I thought there was no way that we’d get a good place up front for the show now because it was quite late already, but fortunately we did and we enjoyed a terrific show! Really want to see them again one day. Hoping this community will help me with that. Anyway it was a pretty fckn awesome day
