In this day, there was a first music show which I wanted to attend in Portugal. I woke up about 12 pm, went out for shopping about 1pm and got a text message from my friend like “don’t forget – the show is starting at 2 pm!”. I was pretty sure that he is just joking, so I made a phonecall to him and huh, the show was really set at 2 pm.
I’ve been going to shows for many years and already been in most part of Europe and to be honest, shows start somewhere between 7-10 pm. So it was like a shock for me but what could I did? I went there…
There were like 200-250 kids there and I was completely suprised. Noone was complaining! The gig was nice but then I realized the reason why the show was so early. Benfica and Sporting were playing at 7 pm and show booker wanted to allow people to go and support their football teams. That was something really amazing for me, how people can schedule their time with football priority. Well, Portuguese can! This is what I can call a commitment.
And the funny thing was, that right after a match was finished, the second show was started!
PS. Even if I support Sporting Lisboa, they lost the game..
