Gig today

Hey everyone, how are you?

I am headed to London to go to a gig tonight. It is going to be awesome.


I am leaving around midday and getting the train to London. And then the underground out to east London, where I am staying. I am staying in a hotel for a night, rather than rush for the last train back home. I can’t be dealing with the worry of missing the last train and being stranded overnight. I’d much rather have somewhere to crash for a night and come home the next day. Also, because I booked the hotel when I booked the gig ticket it was super cheap. I will arrive in London and it will take time to get to where I need to go in East London. But it will still be a few hours until the gig, which is in the evening. But that gives me a chance to unpack and rest before going out. I will also have to get something to eat as well.

The gig is a heavy metal gig, an American band called Slipknot. I have seen them before, back in 2015 and they put on one hell of a show. I have seen photos and videos from this tour and it looks just as crazy and epic, so, I cannot wait until this evening. The gig is at the o2 arena in North Greenwich which is a short underground ride from where I am staying. It is really easy to get to. I will probably get something to eat when I get there. At the arena there is a lead of eateries around the edge and the arena is in the middle. I prefer it to a gig at the Wembley arena as it is hard to get to and just not as convenient. There is a support band before Slipknot and they won’t be on stage until around nine in the evening. But it will be worth the wait.

After the gig I will be getting the underground back to the hotel. It won’t take that long and I will probably crash out asleep when I get in. It should be a really good day and one I have been looking forward to since I found out that they were coming to the UK. I don’t mind going to gigs on my own as there will be a lot of people there and we are all there for the same thing, the music. At previous gigs I have hung out with other people there and even been lifted up on someone’s shoulders. So, I have no fear about being on my own.

Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.

  1. Awesome gig, Annette! I saw Slipknot in 2001 and it was a killer show. I’m not sure what you do (play in another band, or backstage crew?) but you’ll have a great time nonetheless. Stay safe and enjoy the show!
