We got golden tickets for the shakira concert in lisbon.
The whole trip was so special, it was Maui‘s birthday. Her first time on a plane. Her first oversea trip.
We went to the concert with the best mood anyone ever had. There weren‘t a lot of people in the golden circle, so we had a lot of space for ourselves. While waiting for Shakira to start, I saw a couple asking a guy if they could take a picture with him. I don‘t like to guess, so I went straight to this dude asking him if he is any kind of special.
„Excuse me, are you somebody important in lisbon?“
„So why would people want to take a picture with you?“
„I‘m playing in Shakira‘s band.“
„Okay, jokes ok you boy“
After promising me, that I will see for myself later on, he walked away and came back 20 minutes later with a sticker of Shakira‘s tour with the date on it. „Go to the left side of the stage after the concert, show this sticker and you can join us backstage.“ he said and left again.
I looked at Maui with a face saying „Can you believe this dude just gave us a random sticker trying to make me believe he is part of the crew?“ and Maui smiled at me with a face saying „O M G. Can you believe we are about to meet Shakira?“ – as if Shakira would have a coffee with us backstage, telling us about the struggles of being on the road.
After a little time and a lot of drinks, Shakira finally opened the show.
Fun fact: This dude was not IN the band, he was THE band. In one song he played the guitar, in another song the piano and in another one he did the rap-part.
Even tho we knew, Shakira won‘t be hanging out with us, we decided to use our backstage-ticket. The show ended and we went to the left side of the stage. Besides us there where two other normal-looking girls (like us) and two not-so-normal-looking girls (fake boobs, fake nails, fake lashes) waiting to get backstage. After a few minutes the dude opened the door, looked around and chose (obviously) the not-so-normal-looking girls and send the normal-looking-girls and us away.
Sadly we didn‘t get to have coffee with shakira but at least we got elected as 2 of 6 possible bitches for the night.
