My Auckland 2 pictures & report!!!!!

OH MY GOD!!!! Last night was the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE and I would give 15 years of my life to see them again right now!
We got down to Mt Smart at 7.30 am to queue, and at about 11.00 they let us inside into this huge tent and put us in these little pens. We were in the 2nd pen, about the 80th people in.

Me in the pen after sleeping for about an hour


So we waited and waited and waited, and then at 3.00 they locked us in, we weren't allowed to leave our pens. Then FINALLY at 5.00 they began to let us in, row by row!!!!!

We got into the ellipse right on the rail, EDGE SIDE!!! We were also about 4 rows back from the front.

Kanye West started at about 7.30 and played his short set. Then Dallas and Rocko and Sam and everyone started setting up the stage, and Dallas gave me a wave and a smile as he went by!

Then "Wake Up" began to play, and I just went MENTAL and didn't stop for the next 3 hours!! The lights went down and I screamed SO HARD I was nearly sick!!!

The setlist was AMAZING, the played ALL my favourites - nothing I didn't like!!! Edge came down my catwalk so many times, jumping and smiling and skipping and he was SO ADORABLE!!!!

Then, the most INCREDIBLE thing happened!! Edge had a microphone set up RIGHT in front of me in Mysterious Ways, and he was RIGHT THERE, and then just before his slide solo, he must have heard me and turned around, and he gave me the CUTEST smile and HE WINKED AT ME!!!!!!!

I was on a complete high for the rest of the night, and OMG when I left I could hardly stand, I had to rely on Gerry to practically carry me up the stairs!

I also cried 8 times. But I never stopped leaping around and squealing my head off!

Ok, enough talk, it's time for pics!! These could take a while to upload though.
