One of the most amazing days of my life was the day when the one and only Justin Bieber made my dream come true.
Justin came to Israel this past April. I remember that a few months before that people were already selling Bieber merchandise.
I made my own special Justin Bieber T-shirt to wear to the concert.
The week Justin visited Israel was named Bieber Week, probably because that’s all that week was about.
Girls all around Israel followed Justin and his staff from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and anywhere else he went. Tons of girls were dying to see him in person.
Justin had been staying at the Sheraton hotel in Tel Aviv and if you passed by the Sheraton at the time you wouldn’t believe your eyes: screaming fans EVERYWHERE just trying to get a glimpse of their Idol.
A day before the concert a friend of mine slept over at my house (of course helping me with the agonizing question of “WHAT TO WEAR?!!?”) That night we could hardly get any sleep, I just couldn’t believe that the day I have been waiting for for so long was finally here, this amazing, once in a life-time chance.
On the day of the concert I raced to the train station with my friends to get the right train on time. On the train we met more “belibiers” (code name for Justin Bieber fans) and it was pretty cool that a whole conversation was basically started from the sentence “OMG it’s today!” My friends and I met many girls through that sentence.
In the concert there were two areas: the normal area, which was pretty far away from the stage, and the golden ring, which was very close to the stage. When the gates to the golden ring opened we just sprinted as fast as we could to get as close to the stage as possible. It was horribly crowded and suffocating in the closest area to the stage, which happened to be where we were standing. After twenty minutes we gave up and went to find a more comfortable area to stand.
While looking around the golden ring area, which turned out to be this amazing, huge area (with normal air to breath), food, drinks, and a very good view. We saw Dan Kanter, Justin’s Jewish guitarist, and he waved at us!
Later on we found two of our classmates and some friends from a different city. The concert was so amazing and totally worth waiting for.
If I would be asked “would you do it all again?” my answer would be without a doubt “yes!!!”
The experience was unforgettable and I’m looking forward to Justin’s next visit.
