Ok all a bit calmer now.....she met them Thursday which is when Matt broke the camera. They gave her the new one on Friday when she was waiting in line to get into the concert. You can imagine the reaction of everyone around her when that happened! A friend of hers managed to find out from someone that they were flying from Auckland to Christchurch midday Saturday so it was a total chance she was taking. I only got involved when I got a text from her saying what she was doing and that she had no idea how to get to the airport, so I went and picked her up! (Who am I to stand in the way of that!). I have to admit that although I really like their music, I was VERY vague on what they all looked like. Thankfully I had their cd in my bag so when I saw 3 guys who I thought could be them, I quickly sat down, peeked at the cd book while taking quick glances at them.....I'm sure they cottoned on to what I was up to as the check in are is REALLY REALLY small, because Chris looked over at me as I was looking at them and gave me a 'knowing' smile...I was so scared of telling Slopsy to come all the way over and finding out they weren't the right guys!!! But as soon as I saw Matt and Dom turn around I knew! I just wish I could have seen Slopsy's run through the terminals - there is about a 2 minute walk between them and she was there in less than 30 seconds!!!
We were standing with them as they were waiting to check in. They were so incredibly relaxed and friendly and easy to talk to. Nothing was a problem. They asked Slopsy if her camera was ok too. They talked to her about other stuff but I'm not sure exactly what was said. I do know that they asked where her friend was that was with her on Thursday and they asked for her to pass on their love to her . They all took turns one by one to have their pic taken with Slopsy - I joked with Matt that I would make sure I didn't drop the camera - he laughed....honestly they couldn't have been more accommodating. Im sure the people waiting in line behind them were wondering what the fuss was with these ordinary looking boys! We left them to finish checking in and just stook over by the main doors gathering our thoughts etc. When they finished checking in and were making their way to the gate they stopped and turned to us, saying goodbye and thanking us for coming!!! OMG! It was an awesome experience. I'm so excited I had my 8yr old daughter with me. She was really shy about meeting them and it was great for her to see that although they are a famous band, they are just ordinary people who were happy to talk to her and wish her a happy birthday for the day before!

Very cool!!!

Would love video of her running thru the airport

By the way, how did the camera thing workout? Did they take Slopsy's info and then knew she'd be at the show the next night and just had someone buy her a new camera?

Their PR person/manager (I don't know who we was), gave her his cellphone number and told her to get in touch with them the next day. I guess from there she told them where she was in the line, and they would have recognised her and vice versa....they bought her the camera - they knew the brand of her old one etc....it's a brilliant little camera and she says it is better than the last!! Not everyone can say that Muse bought their camera!!

Freakin'. AWESOME. Love the pictures as well-your daughter is adorable. Smart, too-nice taste in music there . Hehe. Between making your daughter happy and being nice enough to replace the camera, my respect for these guys just went up even further.

Thanks for sharing that story, that is REALLY cool . I'm glad you guys all had such a great experience .

Angela
