Golden tickets and a lot more of Pete Wentz!
Didn't bother asking for a photo pass at the last minute for the Fall Out Boy show in Brussels, but I did an okay job taking photos from amongst the crowd, without having to stand in the pit. Pete wasn't at all well that day and told us he was sick at the meet and greet. I was lucky enough to sneek into the meet and greet with a friend who was the lucky person who found the hidden Golden Ticket, which Pete gives clues to finding on his Twitter page. Funnily enough, neither of us had good internet access on their 'phones in Belgium and we weren't able to see more than Pete's first post as a clue to where the Golden Tickets were hidden, but the location was guessed randomly by coincidence and they were found just like that! Only two other girls were supposedly looking, but sorry - finders keepers, losers weepers!
Pete told us he was sick, and he certainly wasn't 100% and was almost losing his voice, but he still performed well and the show was great as usual. The band had to leave right after the show ended, as everyone has to rise very early the next morning to get to Heathrow airport in England for connecting flights to the US and Pete onto Sydney, Australia, where he will be co-hosting the MTV Australia music awards.
Video captures from the Brussels concert can now be seen here:
Full set of photos from the Brussels show are now uploaded into the FANS PHOTOS here:
The same photos are also in my MySpace galleries here:
Fall Out Boy will be back in Europe this August for festivals, including Pukkelpop in Belgium and Reading and Leeds in the UK. Go to the Virtual Festivals site for further info. on festivals line-ups nearer the time:
