Tour Tickets And My Meet-And-Greets
About two years ago, I was a huge “Belieber”. I was absolutely obsessed. After a while, I decided I wasn’t going to let my life revolve around someone who doesn’t even know I exist. And so, I decided to stop obsessing over any stars. I mean famous people. Not literal stars. That would be weird. Anyways, then One Direction came along and I got obsessed with them. But the same thing happened and I changed my mind and said that I wasn’t going to let my life revolve around people who don’t know I exist. After that, Justin’s Believe Acoustic album came out and I kept listening to it.
Justin was having a concert in Dubai ( near Abu Dhabi if you’re not from here) and I was trying to convince myself that I wasn’t enough of a “Belieber” to go. And the tickets were sold out anyways so there wasn’t much I could do about it. Then, turns out that there was a change of plans, and Justin was going to have two concerts! I didn’t expect my parents to let me go because it was on a school day.
But then, my best friend, who was not a real belieber, barely a fan, told me he was going with two of his other friends and I got mad and excited and happy and bla bla bla. So I went on and kept imagining myself there. I kept listening to his music and imagining that I was there and he was singing right in front of me. Then the fanpit tickets were almost sold out so I decided that I had to ask my parents. They were not okay with it right away and told me they’d discuss it later. I imagined having a calm conversation with my dad and that’s how it went.
They let me go! I bought the fan pit ticket and my dad even offered to drive us there! After that, I REALLLLYYY wanted to meet Justin and my dad had said that he could get me backstage passes, meet and greets, because he has a friend who works there. I asked him to call his friend and he called him. Then his friend had no idea what a meet-and-greet was but said he could get me one if I could explain. I kept telling my dad to call him over and over and over and over again until he did.
The day of the show, he picked me up from school with my friend ( we were going home for 15 mins and then straight to the concert) and passed me 3 meet and greets! Exactly the amount I wanted! One for me and two for my friends! I completely freaked out, in a good way, and kept saying thank you and thank you and thank you over and over and over again. There’s only a couple hours left for the concert, and for me to meet Justin ! Ahhh! I. Just. Love. Life.
