22 February 2013

One year today, was my last day of work at Matrix. I cannot believe a year has gone by already. In less than 2 months it will be a year since I arrived to Abu Dhabi. That will be another story ...

THE ROLLING STONES

...Capital letters have been chosen on purpose. The concert was more than I expected. It was A-W-E-S-O-M-E!
Those who know me, also know that I am strongly against the use of this word. Some people abuse it too often and shout "awesome", here and there for the silliest things. Awesome, means worthy of/isnpiring awe.... So, people please use it properly!

And last night was totally awe inspiring. To see a bunch of 70 years old jumping up and down, performing amazing music that made history (man, the Rolling Stones!) with the spirit of teenagers was just amazing. I could not believe it. I was happy, people around me were happy. Smiles were slapped on everybody's faces. Happiness was all over the place. People were so high on music. We were all watching four friends having a public party!

The concert sold out in December, so they erected an additional section to make room for hundreds of more lucky people who took part in last night's glorious event. Music was everywhere...... I was jumping in the morning before the event, jumping up and down walking to the concert, jumping at the concert, jumping on the way back. I could not stop.

My best friend Bari rightly observed that Kamilah going to the Rolling Stones concert (or any concert for that matter) is like taking Ray Charles to admire the Monnalisa.... (wtf!). The man knows me so well. I am not a connoisseur of music, or singers. I don't even have a favourite band. All the time preceding the concert I even thought that Steven Tyler was the lead singer of the Rolling Stones (Shame, shame! I know) and that the band was from the USA (I am a disgrace!)

Still. I could totally appreciate last night's magic. It was plain, impeccable, absolutely extraordinary entertainment. The time flew by. We all wanted more! In the end, there was no more appropriate finale song than their N. 1 track: I can't get no... Satisfaction!

Here are some photos (blurry I know), as a reminder of that unforgettable night!
