Concert Time: Nickelback 'Greatest Hits Tour' 2013


If you were curious about how my evening went when I went to see Nickelback then carry on reading! 
As you can see the concert took place in the London O2 which was alien to me as I have NEVER been anywhere in London except for Hyde Park with my college a few years ago (shocker). I find this disgraceful as I have been in the country for 3 years and haven't actually done a lot of exploring! 

Anyway, the journey there was simple enough and we used the AA route planner Michael has on his phone to find our way. We made it in perfect time and it was a rather enjoyable drive seeing the city and then arriving at the O2 Arena. 


I was like a kid in a candy store! I was so exciting and could not focus on one thing when we got there. I find even the entrance of the O2 beautiful and it truly was an amazing experience. 


Funnily enough I didn't actually take a lot of pictures there as I was saving most of my battery for my vlog and the concert but here are a few snaps from the concert. 




The concert was beautiful and the fact that Skillet opened for Nickelback was a huge bonus for me as I have loved both bands for the longest time. 

I will admit now that on a few of the Nickelback songs I actually started tearing up, purely because I was so grateful to be standing within their presence and listening to the music that has helped me through alot of troubles and being able to share that with someone as special as my fiancée just made the whole evening for me. 

The whole concert was incredible! I do not have words to describe how much being there meant to me but I loved every single second of it. 

Now on to the only bad part - As both of our phones died in the concert we only had the paper directions and the memory of how we got in there trying to get us back out. We somehow managed to take the wrong turning and ended up in a place called Deptford. We then proceeded to get lost for 4 and a half hours in the centre of London and surrounding areas and after a few arguments (getting lost can be extremely infuriating) and a panic attack on my park we finally stopped off at the Park Inn near Tower Bridge. They were super helpful and printed us out paper directions to try and get us back in the right directions. 2 hours later we managed to get home and instead of being home at 12:30 we only ended up getting home at 3:45am. Need less to say, this was the worst part of the evening but I don't think anything could could ruin my memories of the wonderful evening. 

Moral of the story: We now have technology for a reason e.g. Sat Navs. If you do not regularly travel to London or have a bad sense of direction like I do, I suggest you take one or spend the night in London OR take a spare battery. We were silly, so very silly. 

Here is the video in case you wanted to see the promised vlog (panick attacks not included) haha.



Sorry for the lack of a beauty post but I thought I would share my experience with you guys! 

Have you ever been lost in a city that had no end? Or in London itself?
