I instantly knew what this song would be for me. In 2008 me and some of my NLY girls pulled together to get tickets to Backstreet Boys Unbreakable Tour, so we could go to a few shows together. I’d never met any of them before, but that’s not really what worried me – I’d have to get a train on my own, and at this point – I’d never gotten a train on my own and last time I got on a train, I had several panic attacks.
However my NLY friends are awesome (even those I didn’t meet back then) and they were on call if I needed them, made sure I didn’t have to wait around for them. So, although I was anxious and nearly didn’t get on that first train – there was no panic attacks.
We did two consecutive dates in the UK – Liverpool and Birmingham. This particular memory is from the Birmingham show. We were sat in pairs, but pretty spread out around the area – so we made arrangements. This was the last show any of us would see this tour – so when Backstreet’s Back played, after a few minutes, we run like hell to the guys tour buses. And what I remember most (aside from meeting really awesome friends) – is dancing down the aisle with Ewa as we made our exit. And a poor steward who looked slightly intimated by this.
Good times. Good times.
Do you have a song that reminds you of somewhere?
