It seems like we had been waiting all summer for the Heaven & Hell tour (Heaven & Hell with Coheed and Cambria) to make its way to Boston and when it finally did on August 28, we were pretty pumped. We were even more excited when we found out that Claudio Sanchez was going to be doing a signing at Newbury Comics in Fanueil Hall earlier that afternoon.
Unlike the last time we went to a signing, this one would be so much easier! We knew where we were going! It would only take us about an hour to get there! There's no way we wouldn't make it!
And, despite getting our hopes up that everything would run smoothly (which usually means something will go horribly wrong) - EVERYTHING RAN SMOOTHLY! We met Claudio Sanchez (We feel weird not writing his whole name all the time because we don't know him! we're not on a first name basis here!), he was very nice and we didn't have to worry about driving 5 hours back home or possibly getting completely lost. We also had the concert that night to look forward to!
While we were trying to kill some time before heading over to the Bank of America Pavilion, we saw a robot, a juggler, some breakdancers and a giant man.
You know when you think something's going to be awesome but when it finally happens, it turns out to be way more awesome than you ever could have expected and it ends up blowing your mind?
That was our experience with our seats. I don't really want to use the term "front row center" but that's exactly what we were.
All in all it was one of the best shows we ever went to- we had never been so close before without having to be suffocated or almost murdered by the people around us. Oh! And, Caitlin got a drumstick! :)
