This really got my nerves to take over, my palms were sweaty, tears filled my eyes. I'm really going to see them!! Eeeeeeeek!
A good thing Piet was with me, because I totally lost it when I saw the Bee Gees standing there.
They were very relaxed, joking with eachother, Barry even got a hold of a camera and started filming us and I, really blown away by all this, was thoroughly enjoying every minute of it!
They even played my favourite song ONE from start to finish.
This had to be the highlight, I hadn't expected we would pull it of to be at the soundcheck.
And there was still the concert to see.
It's a bit weird celebrating the beginning of a new millennium in Ft. Lauderdale, nice weather, no - oliebollen- but instead we got Bee Gees fireworks!!
The show started at about 9.15 pm with a stand-up comedian which we didn't find too interesting, that was not what we came to see.
But at 10.14 pm the music got stronger, lights were flashing and there they were.
From this moment it was all systems go for me, clapping, singing, screaming and more.
They really were unbelievably good and Barry's voice was perfect.
Don't ask me which songs they played because I can't remember, I sat through this concert as if I was mesmerized, it was totally awsome!
But as you know even good things must come to and end and of course the end came too soon.
A dream has come true and my heart's desire was fullfilled; seeing the Bee Gees live!

And just to top it all off I met Barry and Linda a couple of days later.
With lots of great memories we left for home.
We met nice people and we might even have made friends for life.
At home we enjoy this experience surrounded by all the acquired memorabilia like Barry's autograph, merchandise from the concert and not to forget, the VIP chair from the Arena.
Barry, Robin and Maurice, thank you very much for this fabulous concert and I hope to see you soon in Europe!!
