When: 24 & 25th July 2007

I saw The Hives play the 300 capacity 100 Club on the 24th and the 150 capacity Hoxton Bar And Grill on the 25th and they played the 2 best shows of my life! I met Howlin' Pelle before the 100 Club show and then the whole band after and got my setlist and stuff signed and then met Pelle, Nick and Chris after the Hoxton show too! Pelle: "You again!?"

Where: Henry Fonda Theater, Wiltern, HOB Anaheim

When: August 2004, December 2004, January 2005

The first time I saw the Hives was when I was 14. They were simply amazing. I instantly fell in love with them. So, I went to every show they did near me in California; even meeting them and taking pictures with them afterwards. The most memorable was the 2 hour show they played at the HOB in Anaheim. The energy was consistent from beginning to end. It was amazing that they didn't collapse! Ever since the following hiatus, I've been yearning to see them play. Unfortunately, I won't be able to see them play in Los Angeles or San Diego this year because I have no ride, no ticket, and it's on a school night (I don't really care that it's on a school night :D). I was reluctant in going because IT'S SEATS ONLY. I like to mosh and jump! Seating kills the experience.

No band has come close to the brilliance of The Hives.

Where: Benicàssim

When: 22-07-2007

I've seen them in a concert, the last day of the Benicàssim Festival. Their concert began at 21.00 I think, and I was waiting since 16.00. It was awfully hot, there were no clouds, and I was wearing a black t-shirt (bright idea).

Anyway, I saw them from the first row; in fact, I touched (not sexually) Pelle when he came near us. I live in a small town, where there are no good rock concerts, and, no doubt, that was the best concert of the festival. (I even got a Vigilante's pick!)
