They played for about three hours and we didn't get in till about 2.00am in the morning, it had been a long and eventful day, but it was worth it...
We were up early this morning as we were very kindly being picked up by Andy and Hilary who dropped us at the station and we got the train down into London. We were on our way to Wembley to see Nickelback.. We were ready to rumble!!!!
Well we didn't know how true that would be.... On getting to the train station we had forgotten our train ticket authorisation code and we couldn't pick our tickets up at the office and in the end had to get on the train without them. We managed to get on to http://www.trainline.com/ and managed to get the code and a very helpful train guard said he would allow us to get the tickets when we got into London.
Shortly after this the train braked gently and then very hard followed by loads of smoke pouring from the brakes and a smell of burning. This was then followed by a loud bang from the front of the train and loads of stones flying up underneath and down the sides. The train came to a stop about 300 yards after the bang and the smell off burning and the smoke continued. It all went very quiet.......... Then over the intercom the driver said "sorry for the delay but there has been a fatality"
With our heads out the windows a British Rail guy walked up to the train and Del asked "has anyone been hurt". Very distressed he said "Oh yes someone has hit the train"
The transport police turned up and took the driver away and got a replacement driver. The train was then inspected then very slowly taken into Luton where we had to change trains, and a sheet was put over the front of the train.... We were all shaken up!!! We still didn't know if it was a jumper or a British Rail worker that had been killed. This has now appeared on the internet. http://www.bedfordtoday.co.uk/541/Woman-killed-after-being-hit.5994258.jp
When we got to London, we met Hannah David and Bernie luckily in the queue waiting to get in at around 3.00pm (the concert didn't start till 8.00pm). We grabbed something to eat while our place was saved, and when we got in around 6pm, got right up on the barriers.
We had a fantastic night......Daughtry and Nickelback were just brilliant...
