Newton Faulkner was EPIC.

So I just got back from the gig! I got there three hours early and went for food and then went to the back of the venue where we saw Newton's bus and we could hear him practicing for the gig (AWESOME). I then started to queue 2 hours early so I'd be right up the front. When the doors opened me and my friend rushed to the front, we were literally right up the front in the middle, we were about 3 foot away from the stage. The support act was a local boy who was pretty awesome and then Newton come on and blew my mind. I recorded most of it on my phone (terrible quality) and took a few pictures. So after the amaaaaaaaaazziiing gig me and my friend waited around out the back by his bus so we could hopefully meet him. We didn't mind how long it'd take to see him because we had no means of transport to get home, we were planning on staying up and catching a bus back early. After about half hour someone came up to us and asked if we were waiting for him to sign something.. We got super exicted and give them our tickets and told them our names. In my head I was thinking omg he's going to bring them out but though naah he'll be busy. After about five minutes.. NEWTON FAULKNER COMES OUT WITH OUR TICKETS!!! AAAAAAH. He comes up to us and says our names and gives us our tickets. Me and my friend stunned we didn't know what to say so we just touched his dreads. We then talked to him about the show and how awesome he is and how much we love him and then I asked for a photo. He said no problems so I put my arm around him and he did the same and before the photo was taken someone pointed out there's no light on us so we walked like 10 foot with our arms around each other... LOVE. Then I got my photo taken and he said he has to go because he's got another gig tomorrow and his pizza's getting cold so I shook his hand and told him I loved him again before I touched his dreads and left. He said I love you too! AAAAH. Also he said he recognized me and my friend from in the crowd.. He kept looking at us throughout the gig because we were right at the front. I then screamed like a girl and just had to ring someone, so I phoned my friend that was with me and we both screamed. Then I phoned my brother and sent him the photo of me and Newton so if anything happened to me it'd be safe xD And that my friends is the story of the best day of my life! I'll upload the photos and some videos(depending on quality) tomorrow! I'm now going to go to sleep as i'm ballsed. Night!
p.s. I'm never washing again.
Oh and here's the photo of me and my idol.
