Last night i was the luckiest girl ever, following a discussion with Natasha , how i was missing her gig on sunday (bit too pricey and not too fuss about about the rest of the all dayer), she recalled she was on guest list for her gig on monday but couldn't go and would see if i could go instead. I tried not to get my hopes up but then on monday got an email to say yes my name on there. I was expected a small gig for the press...what i didn't expect was the most intimate one ever---- 30 of us sitting on cushions in small studio pretty much in front of Tarja playing a private gig. She played songs from upcoming albums and old favourites. ..chatted to us in between. ..so so surreal , all recorded too. It was a mix of press and fans that won a competitions on her fan page.
Due to gig being recorded and well due to how near we were cameras would have been pretty much in her face...there was no photos during the gig, but afterward Tarja took the time to chat to everyone and do photos which was so unexpected. I am still on cloud 9 for having been part of such an intimate gig. She was so lovely and friendly
