Queen in Barcelona: Palau Sant Jordi: June 10th, 2018
After spending a few days in the beautiful town of Blanes, on the Costa Brava approximately 60 km from Barcelona, the long-awaited day arrived. We left early to enjoy the day visiting some famous places in the city. We did the traditional visit to the imposing Sagrada Familia, we also visited the Güell Park where it rained a little and then went to have a hot dog lunch near the Camp Nou, where a nice gentleman who claimed to be a singer attended us. When he saw our rock outfits he claimed to know all of ... Alejandro Sanz songs, it was a really fun lunch.
Finally we went to the Palau Sant Jordi, mythical place of concerts in Barcelona. I felt a little out of reality, as in a dream and still didn’t believe that in a few hours I would see my idols. The day was a bit cloudy but was just the preamble of a spectacular sunset with beautiful orange and red colors, better impossible. Finally we entered the premises and Dany and Andreu, who paid front row, went to find their entrance. They knew the importance of that day and they hugged me for a long time. I went to my sector that had numbered chairs in the highest part of the enclosure. I waited for the show to start.
Minutes later, another miracle happened: the girl who helped me in locating my seat, approached me and told me simply that if I wanted to see the concert from the bottom, right in front of the stage! Although I understood it perfectly, it took me quite a few seconds to process the information. I could not believe it and the girl, seeing my perplexity, thought I didn’t speak Spanish but when I finally got to talk, I said YES! I asked her if there would be any additional cost and she said no, they were simply choosing some people to relocate for space reasons, so I immediately went down with some other lucky ones to the front of the stage. I looked for my friends and when they saw me, they couldn’t believe my good luck.
Finally the concert began with "Tear it up" of the album The Works and I couldn’t contain the tears when Roger and Brian came out. Tears of infinite gratitude to have the opportunity to be in that place. It was so much emotion that I could hardly take pictures so my friend Dany, watching me in that state, took my phone and took care of the matter. I sang every song to everything that my lungs gave and finally came "I'm in love with my car" sung by Roger Taylor, his sharp and raspy voice has always seemed to me one of the best in rock and even in his 68 years he did it perfectly.
