As most of you heard, the Midnight Red show at The Avalon was cancelled because of something that happened.
Everything was great at first. There was loud music and we were getting pumped. Out of nowhere this white smoke starts hitting us and it was so cool at first because it was so cold and I just loved the effect. But after a while, I was starting to feel desperate. All I could see was WHITE. My friends, they were next to me and I could barely see them. Then my chest was starting to feel tight. I couldn’t breathe and I was panicking. I left my friends and started wandering blindly looking for an exit. I was even more desperate because I was alone and I didn’t know what to do or where to go. I ended up grabbing onto a little boy and BEGGING him to help me out. I ended up just walking randomly until I bumped into the wall and I just followed it until I found an exit. I ran out of there suffocating. When I was outside, I was trying SO hard to catch my breath and I almost cried because I was so traumatized. I went back inside to find my friends and the smoke was gone but I had a POUNDING headache. Someone said that is was cold air and that was it but it didn’t feel like it. Then Avery performed but as soon as she was done, we had to evacuate the place and when we were outside, there were SO many ambulances outside and the street was literally closed. We didn’t know what to do. We just wanted to go back inside.
By that time, I was ANGRY. I was beyond angry. All we were doing was just waiting. I was more angry because the show was cancelled. I think I was just angry because I paid to get into that show and I got nothing. I was also angry because the guys kept saying that there was a MIDNIGHT RED RIOT which was not true. What happened in there had nothing to do with them and they kept saying it was because of them. I was just angry because I thought they were taking this situation lightly. The guys later DID come out for a meet and greet but it was SO fast I hardly spoke to them. I was even angrier because I paid 20 bucks for the VIP pass and I didn’t even get my picture or autographs. The news came and they interviewed the guys and that annoyed me because I thought they were milking the attention. Not the guys, but their people you know? We waited until they left and nothing. I was SO MAD. I ended up ranting on Twitter but then as I was leaving, I got a DM from Midnight Red asking me for my number…
So I gave them my number and I got a call from their manager. He explained EVERYTHING to me and I explained EVERYTHING to him. Why I was mad and frustrated. We ended up coming to an agreement. He asked me to call him when I get to the Rolling Stones Club and he was going to give me a private meet and greet with them.
So we went back to my house to fix ourselves and when we got there, we met up with Paris. He was really nice and even gave us money for parking or whatever. We didn’t keep it for ourselves though. We talked to Paris and their bodyguard and they explained everything to us. The guys were actually underground so they had no idea what was going on. They were locked in and weren’t allowed out. That’s when someone told them that there was a riot and that’s why they tweeted that. It was until later that they found out.
When the guys got there, we got to hang out with them for a while. They gave us big hugs and apologized. They were all so nice and friendly and we all talked about what happened to us. I was happy that Paris gave us the opportunity to make the situation better for me and my friends. We took pictures and we hugged some more and then we talked some more lol. Then we left and they wished us a safe drive back.
Despite everything that happened, the night ended very well for me <3
