BACKSTREET's BACK ALRIGHT!!!

A group of three makes me claustrophobic. The dust in the neighbor's house makes me sneeze my head off. So, when Prasad got us free tickets for Backstreet Boys @Rock In India (Thanks for Arpan for that! :) ); my first reaction was dread...deep down. The expected crowd was of the order of 10,000 odd people. But, then with Prasad protecting me under his wing, we reached Palace Grounds by around five thirty pm.

OK. Here's the thing, after being in Bangalore for almost nine years now, I've never been to a concert! I've been to Prasad's performances which were swarming with metal-heads. But then, being the vocalist's chick ;) ; I was always in the safe area, away from the wild head-banging crowd.

So I was all jittery with excitement when we finally arrived at Palace Grounds for the show.
With the sun shining in its peak ( I can almost imagine it with an evil smile) I was hyperventilating and by now, looking at the ticket below....

I was sporting an ear-to-ear smile.

The Boys only showed up on the stage by nine pm or so. By then my legs were already shaky..half to due exhaustion half.. with excitement :D. I vividly remember how me and my sis would replay their cassette for As long as you love me.... over and over again..until it wore out. Now, they WERE ON THE STAGE! OMG... I was ACTUALLY looking at The Boys.. LIVE. I've NEVER seen anyone LIVE! I mean.. any CELEBRITY! And. Ooooh.. I gotta mention the hotties who danced with them. I always wished I could dance like that. So sensual.

For once, I knew ALL the lyrics for EVERY song. I was not an ignorant-out-of-fashion-outcast! (Hurray!)

Me and Prasad sung our heads & throats off for an hour while they whipped out all their old numbers, which we'd grown up listening to. ...

Whatever people may say or shun...This was MY FIRST LIVE show.. and it was the BackStreet Boys.. whom I used to blush looking at.. as a teenager. It was a night to cherish. :)
