Where: Los Angeles

When: November 7, 2007

I have been a Hives fan since i was 17, now heading to 23 and after all these years i finally had the chance to meet them. When my friend and i first arrived we went to go pick up our tickets and we saw Dr. Matt Destruction outside having a smoke. He waved hello at us and of course we got excited. Although we couldnt go talk to him since my friend needed to pee badly, plus i was super nervous to meet any of the guys. So we went inside and of course the show was fantastic. At the end of the show many fans had the chance to meet the band once they but the album. We had our posters sign and it was great. I was shaking and soooooo nervous to meet these guys i cant express it enough. Pelle gave me a hug and till this day i wont let anyone hug me just because i like saying, pelle was the last man i hugged. My friend on the other hand gave a huge kiss on the cheeck to chris dangerous. Oh was it funny. Shook hands with all the boys and then i went into my own cloud haha. But then i got to meet a member of universal records that was handing down flyers. I asked her what she did and she told me she worked for universal, the hives record label, gave me her card and hopefully i will soon begin an internship for Universal Records under public relations. So not only did i meet these fantastic guys but i might get an internship and begin my career.. one of the best days of my life. I wish i could hug Pelle again, great hugger.. ohhhhhh :) I would really like to thank you guys for giving us the chance to meet you all, hopefully i have the opportunity to work with you guys!!!

When I saw the Hives it was all by chance. They were opening for Maroon 5. As soon as they got on stage, I knew I loved them! They were so awsome!!!! I mean, I been thinking about their music ever since. They are now my fav band. They are so freakin' awsome. And on top of that, the band married us! They asked if anyone had any questions. Some person asked them if they would marry her. So, Pelle was the official. He married the entire croud to the band. It was sooo funny. I have been hooked on there music ever since. I luv you guys!!

Where: The Avalon, Hollywood, CA

When: Wednesday the Seventh of November

Okay. I fell in love with HPA about two months ago, but last Wednesday was it... My best friend Nicole and I snagged tickets to see our favourite band at the Avalon, and, after being right up in front of the stage in a steaming hot mass of breathing, screaming audience members, I got a chance to meet the band. I was drenched, panting, and ridiculously happy as I walked up and saw HPA's smiling face shining up at mine and I fell in love all over again. I bluntly stated that someday we were going to get married, and he surprisingly stated that he was looking forward to it. So, what, if there's a fourteen-year age difference? He'll be 32 when I'm 18. No biggie. I went on in a daze and met the rest of the band, really charming guys, happy, friendly, very unlike their biting hard-rock stage performance. I felt something like a stupid blubbering groupie but it was seriously the best night of my life. Best part is, I don't even feel stupid when I kiss my poster 'cos someday I'll get a real kiss from Pelle.
