The Europe Music Awards yesterday evening/night was fantastic. Many great bands, many worthy winners. Best of all: Tokio Hotel won the only award they were nominated for – Best Group.
Today’s big news: Tokio Hotel will be coming to Sweden! In March next year. They’re going to play both in Stockholm AND Gothenburg!
Here’s my video from outside the hotel when Tokio Hotel are signing stuff. Check out Bill’s bodyguard!
Here are my photos from the Meet & Greet!
When the guys had shook our hands they walked up to everyone one more time to sign whatever we had brought with us. Then everyone gave their gifts to the guys. I had written a letter and went to give it to Georg – and just as he reached out and took it, Bill grabbed it from Georg’s hand. Then it was time for the photos to be taken.
Shortly after 7 pm I met Madde, Kenza and all the Meet & Greet winners. A guy from the record label met us and brought us inside the hotel by the backdoor. I don’t how many floors we went up, but we went high up! We had to wait for a long time in the corridor, and Bill’s new bodyguard paced back and forth there. He is gigantic! Then we were finally let into the room and just a few minutes later Tokio Hotel joined us!
When it was all over by NRJ I went back to the Central Station where I had breakfast and used a computer for a while. After an hour I decided to take a walk. I walked past a hotel where a friend once told me that Backstreet Boys used to stay when they visited Stockholm during the 1990′s. I noticed many Tokio Hotel fans outside so I went to talk to some of them. When the hotel guards started putting up fences to keep the fans away from the guests, all doubts disappear – we knew where the band would spend the day…
It’s been 24 hours how and I still can hardly believe it has happened! The bus to Stockholm left at 3:50 am last night, I went to NRJ together with some other fans and we arrived there about 6:45 am. When the time approaced 8 am we were 70-80 fans there. It was a weird feeling, hearing Tokio Hotel being interviewed and knowing they were in the building next to us.
Only a few hours ago, Tokio Hotels new music video for “Automatic” was released. The German version “Automatisch” will be online in a few more hours. I’m sitting here pressing “replay” over and over again, with a happy smile on my face, just enjoying the music!
Those who were there in Cologne didn’t only get to hear the song in an acoustic version – they got to hear it in an acoustic slow version…
