AER-O-SMITH!

On Tuesday Gus came along with my brother and I to see Aerosmith at The O2 Arena in London. I'd been looking forward to this show for ages, and was so glad Gus was here to enjoy it too! Here he is before we set out with the £100-a-piece tickets...


It only takes about 45 mins to get to Greenwich where The O2 is. All the trains were on time, which was weird. We arrived at about 4pm. When you enter the venue now you have to go through airport style security, so Gus stayed in my bag and went through the scanner lol.



Just inside The O2 is where Michael Jackson announced he was doing the 'This Is It' shows last year, before he died.


Also we found the area where the tv show 'Soccor AM' do some of their filming.



We had a few hours to kill, so we decided to go and check out The British Music Experience, which is an exibition at the venue. Unfortunatly they don't allow pictures in there, but I've saved a ticket stub for Gus to take home with him.

After that we went to the gift shop, where Gus picked out something to take back home to Becky.

We were lucky enough this time round to get an upgrade on our Aerosmith tickets, so we got access to a 'VIP' area before the show, which consisted of a lounge, bar and a casino area. They were serving all sorts of cocktails there, so we all had one. Gus had an 'Everlasting' one - I'm saving the picture of him getting drunk for his scrapbook!

We got in the special lift that takes you to the tier where your seats are in the arena, and found we had a fab view! Gus was very excited by this time, and rather drunk...


And here is a video of Gus rocking out during the show!

The show was on for about 2 hours, and finished at around 11:15pm. We worked our way out of the arena and round to where my parents were waiting to pick us up in the car. My brother, Gus and I all had rather nasty headaches when we left the arena, which was probably down to the drinkies. I told Gus I wasn't going to let him drink anything at Wembley on Saturday!

We got home at about 12am. It was a great night, and it's sad that it's over :( But it's Green Day on Saturday at Wembley Stadium, so we can do it all over again then! Yay!
