I do not know what he was thinking in this moment, but i felt like we are important for them and they are proud and thankful of their fans. Then they sang Jet Black Heart, and i do not know if it was cause i feel identify with this song, but i had thousand of emotions, like never before.

As usual the songs were performed to “perfection” and the screaming girls were ecstatic. Still something that everyone of them but Michael G Clifford on lead guitar seemed to be missing, was the energy and joy on stage. Calum just seemed plain sad to the point where my thoughts during the show was;it looks like he needs a hug, should i go up there and hug him(i stood in GC2).
