Then, just as the black sheet dropped, some utter knobend chucked a full bottle of pepsi which hit me in the back of the head, and then I started bleeding profusely. I was then taken from the crowd, walked past the front of the stage, into the medic tent, where my friend soon joined me. I didn't even get to see the German flag go; I was walking past as it was up. I was then taken by ambulance to the medical station thingy, where they glued my head.
Once I was let go, after an hour, we legged it back (from the far side) to try to at least catch some of the music. Our new position was http://temp.jpgclan.com/2010-07-31-afterrammstein.jpeg . I am short. I could see pretty much nothing. We got to see 3 songs, at least.
Whoever the guy (or girl) is who chucked the pepsi: thanks a lot, you utter utter rat-a-tat-tat. I can't actually think of words strong enough to accurately reflect my feelings.
At least I seem to be fine now, even if I can't wash my hair for a few days. Although apparently my blood pressure was a bit high. I can't imagine why this might be.
(I felt that this was probably worthy of boosting my post count to 2.)
I think I saw this happen. Was on you on the right facing the stage? If it wasn't you it happened to someone else aswell. I think if you're going to throw a bottle, then you should atleast take the lid of so it doesn't hurt as much. It can be benificial if it is just water to cool a few people down although it is still a nuisence. Some people got very annoyed with the bottle wars this year as people started to throw everything they could e.g, Condoms filled with piss, sun cream, glasses, clothing. They where ones that I saw.
As for Rammstein. Words cannot describe how brilliant they actually where. Best band I have ever seen live, and I believe that is not going to change in a hurry.
