Through the years, rock stars have been providing entertainment with their unique and diverse style of music. However, a live performance by a rock star has an altogether different effect which elates one to higher levels of music thrill. An opportunity of such kind came my way and I grabbed it with both my hands. Music icon Bryan Adams performed in the city of Mumbai in India which I was fortunate to witness. What I did not expect coming, was a memorable journey into the world of sheer rock music.
The stage was set on a huge piece of land with lights and all the vital equipments needed for the concert. Giant speakers were placed in the four corners to make the music highly audible. Even before the event got underway, there were people everywhere. All of a sudden it felt like too many people in a small space. The crowd surged forward and back in one relentless wave like the wild waves of the ocean during a high tide. In such a situation, none could help but to push and shove the others around. The crowd provided or allowed no personal space. We were all packed in there like caged wildcats. I had to move as the crowd allowed or insisted. Everything was done as a group. It was only one group of crazy fans fighting for that one glimpse of their favorite star. The crowd would shift as people passed out. This only allowed me to move closer to the front. As one can tell, I was packed in until the end.

The level of sound was astronomical. The decibel level was on the threshold of pain. The music roared through the streets for miles and the crowd would go crazy. Every time the bass drum was struck, I could feel the repercussion in the organs within my chest. It even made my teeth chatter. The floor beneath me seemed to move with the beat of each song. The vibration that each sound produced, felt like current passing through one's body. It truly felt like a festival of sensory overloads. At this instant, my body felt stimulated in every area to its complete capacity.

The stage was a constant flurry of excitement. It presented a spectacular sight and the atmosphere sucked us into the aura of rock music. Plenty of pyrotechnics kept my eyes filled with colorful wonder as the music played on. The hyperactive guitarist, who was never at a standstill, wore a path in the floor running back and forth. He along with the drummer made the show exciting, and never was there a lull in the show. The light and fireworks kept me craving for more. A fireball would fly to the left, then to the right. The sky was sparkling with beautiful colors everywhere. The whole sight was mesmerizing. The crowd was kept in a constant trance. The entire picture was food to the eyes and music to the ears. The atmosphere was simply electrifying.

        Amidst all the chaos and excitement, I noticed that there were security guards and policemen posted on every nook and corner. However, they could not do much to stop the madness. They stood and watched, ready in case some serious accident should occur. For some strange reason, however, out of all this chaos there was this fear in my mind of the mob going wild and out of control. Thank God nothing of that sort happened.

The mood was ecstatic and upbeat throughout the show. Although there were enormous people packed in the small space, everyone seemed to enjoy every moment of the show. It proved to be a big treat for all the fans of Bryan Adams. The concert was one of the most electrifying and enjoyable moments of my life. The feeling of being in a world of rock music was just amazing. The event was worth the experience which I will remember for days to come.
