Veni, Vidi, Vici - I came, I saw, I conquered


Thank you Marie, Thank you Per!

WOW, what a day and what a NIGHT! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARIE!

The day began with a cloudy morning, but we already knew that they are going to come by plane, the time, and the flight, so we went to the airport. We saw them, it was fantastic, what can i say!

But after a short while, I talked to Christoffer and we met at the hotel. While waiting for them to come downstairs, guess what! Marie and Per show up, and we took pictures, sign a little something and we said THANK YOU!

After that great moment we talked with the band, we took them for a walk, and chatted a little bit.

The moment came that we were there at the venue, pouring cats and dogs, I got wet to the bones. But we got lucky and the rain has stoped.

Our 2 fans with backstage tickets went inside and gave them the gifts, a panflute for Per and a traditional blouse for Marie! Also flowers, a card and a painting with them drawn by a fan.

The concert began, all our fans rise their sheets, singing Happy Birthday more then 4 times :)) and of course throwing baloons at Joyride. I hope they loved it, because i know we did.

After the show we went to their hotel just to sing them a song, and Marie was so nice, she gave us autographs again and sing with us Tro. What a night!

More info in the following days. Meanwhile download from here all my pictures, not many because i was talking and screaming too much. But hey, what can i say, i am a fan!

Useful info about the concert

Here are some pieces of information that we think that will be very useful in the concert day: how to get to Zone Arena, security rules and the weather forecast.

How to get to Zone Arena

1. On foot – most advised

  • Route 1: From the Stefan cel Mare subway (Metro) station – ascend by the exit to Vacarescu avenue, then you walk on the avenue along the Tramway no. 5 line – it will take you aprox. 20 minutes. You’ll find Zone Arena on your right, after you pass by Kaufland and Billa supermarkets and Agip petrol station.

  • Route 2: From Piata Romana - you walk along Calea Dorobantilor and at the first big crossing with the tramway line, you take right on Stefan cel Mare avenue, pass by the Dinamo Sports Center on your left and at the first big crossing, you take left and you follow the tramway line. You then follow the Route 1. Total time - 40 minutes.

2. By Subway (Metro) – easy and quick, still some walking to do; a 2 trip ticket costs 3 lei
Be sure to check the Metro website:

  • From Gara de Nord –  M1 line towards Dristor 2, you get down at the 2nd stop and you follow the route 1. Time on the subway – 5 minutes

3. By ground public transportation - RATB; a 1 trip ticket costs 1.5 lei

RATB ticket offices – at Piata Romana, at the crossing of Stefan cel Mare avenue with Calea Dorobantilor (see map below)

We do not advise you to use this way of transportation –  there are usually frequent traffic jams and a lot of delay. There is no fixed schedule and the waiting time varies a lot.

  • From Stefan cel Mare Metro  – you take Tramway no.5 towards Baneasa. The tramway stop is close to the metro exit (see map 1). You get down at the 3rd stop – Ceaikovski or the 4th – Giuseppe Verdi. Total time – undetermined (see map below).

Alte pregatiri


Banerele costa 270 Ron amandoua si vine omul sa le instaleze pe gard. Florile costa in jur de 550 Ron - cosul ca aranjament. Legat de cadou inca nu stiu ce sa luam. Oricum in total trebuie sa strangem in jur de 1500 de ron ca sa fie. Ce ramane vom cumpara poate vreun cd sa il dam la concursuri. Nu e rau nu? Acum sariti cu donatiile :)) -cititi pe forum cum!

Download imagini

Am sa va rog sa printati in cat mai multe exemplare aceste imagini pentru a putea fi ridicate in momentul in care vom canta "La multi ani!" Cand ne auziti pe cei din primele randuri atunci sper ca toata lumea sa ne insoteasca. Cred ca dupa Perfect Day e cel mai bine. Daca le puteti printa pe foi mai groase ca sa nu se lase in jos, sau sa le lipiti pe cartoane si sa le dati si vecinilor de scaun cate una ar fi perfect. Daca macar in primele randuri vom avea aceste inimi tot ar fi ceva.

Nu uitati sa va cumparati baloane in forma de inima, cat mai multe sa dati si la vecini, si fluiere pt Joyride! Sper ca pana saptamana viitoare sa avem planul complet.

Deci deocamdata aceste inimi de printat in cat mai multe exemplare pe carton sau foi mai groase sa faceti un pic de lucru manual. Pe o parte inima, pe alta steluta ca sa va fie mai usor de fluturat. Fluiere pentru Joyride, Stelute pt Stars!

Cosul de flori, cadourile se vor inmana ori personal or prin cei de la Emagic, dar noi speram personal ca sa va aratam reactia lor.

Despre bannere maine aflu detalii si va comunic. Niste confetti sunt bune, pentru ca le poti arunca cu mana. Ideea este sa nu aveti artificii, si alte bazaconii gen petarde, rachete si asa mai departe.

Pana atunci cititi forumul si vizitati site-ul des ca sa stiti ce aveti de facut. Haideti sa aratam intregii lumi ca si romanii stiu sa faca spectacol cand trebuie si sa le dam clasa tuturor!

Concert preparations

As you can see, Zone Arena will be suffering significant changes for the show. Now it's the fans turn to play their parts and do their best. There has been some forum discussion about this event, when we will sing "Happy Birthday", what surprises shall we prepare.

Now, there are a lot of proposals, time is short, the organizers will hopefully rise up to our expectations, but we have to do our part. As proposed, the band presentation is the best moment to sing "Happy Birthday". To make sure that more people will sing along with us we can print some sheets to give from hand to hand, at least for Golden VIP section, because there is the place where it will all begin. It was suggested immediately after the song "Perfect Day".

If we get to go backstage before the concert, I hope we can talk with the band members about this proposal for accompaning us. I hope the people from the first rows will throw flowers exactly when "Happy B-day!" ends. Now, will you please buy heartshaped balloons or happy b-day balloons and if you have more to share please do it so with your neighbors so we can give as many balloons as posible from hand to hand. In particular, blow them to "Joyride" song, balloon with stars, or stars stuck to some sticks, all will go nicely to "Stars" song if it will be played. I count that each one of you will do everything at home so that we can show we can do this too, not only the Germans or the Argentinians.

We also expect a nearly sold-out event that will overcome all the others up till now. So let's make this day a memorable one especially for Marie. I am counting on your support in the concert day. More information and a weather forecast to come.

VH2 and Magnolia as opening act for Roxette at Bucharest


VH2 and Magnolia will open the concert that Roxette will give in Romania. The concert is part of Roxette's 10th tour and is organized by Emagic and sponsored by Avon and Ciuc Premium.

VH2 is composed of some of the most appreciated Romanian musicians of the moment. Gabriel Cotabiţă's band quickly conquered the music charts from the first single “Trece vremea”, which was one of the most listened tracks in 2002. There followed “Dacă n-ai iubi“, “Fiecare zi fără tine” or “Nu-mi mai pasa“, songs loved by every member of the public. In June 2010, VH2 performed as the opening act for the concert sustained by Elton John in Bucharest.

Magnolia is a pretty new project on the Romanian music market. Raluca Leahu, the initiator of the project was only a DJ and TV and radio host one year ago. Together with her colleagues, Dan Leahu (guitar and synth), Radu Anghel (bass) and Bogdan Moroşanu (drums), Raluca brings a new breath in the Romanian music. With a new and unique style, Magnolia conquered the public short after its debut, which was on the same stage with I Blame Coco.
