Hey everyone! Back in Canada after an amazing UK trip. Saw Melanie in Liverpool (VIP), London (I chose to not queue and sit in level 2), and Birmingham (VIP). great to see so many friends and familiar faces! Especially in London, it was chaos, even DenDen Admin Marc was there. I probably saw way more Dendeners than I realized. Remember that with London, the families sit on the sides on level 1 so that's the place to go to celeb-sight.

I did thank Melanie for doing the entire new album in the show, as that's the whole purpose of the tour. She was like: 'I KNOW, RIGHT??????'.

As for my pics, I obviously treasure the erm, "Titanic" one which is viewable publically as my Facebook profile picture: https://www.facebook.com/angiehung It did feel great to have her arms around my stomach.
I'm on facebook now, just search for my name in the Calgary, AB network.
I'm the person in the orange Tigger hat in the picture below:

What a wonderful experience!!

Best five nights of my life, even better than TROTSG. Thanks everyone involved, I had a blast!

Meeting DenDeners is definitely a great part of the experience, it's amazing to be able to actually TALK to people.

My meet & greet experience was beyond the wildest I ever imagined. Simply perfect. Thanks for being such a lovely lady, Melanie!!

Which are the other 3?

HICA, WYG, NBS & FDOML
I thought some would have been for London, but she did not change the set list.
Anyway, will see for the European tour.

London was a fantastic night :music: i danced from the beginning to the end. :music:


She will probably ditch 4 VOM songs in favour of those 4. Smart move!

I'm going to see Bruno Mars next week. Take That and Olly Murs in June. Steps in November. I've made sure I know their new album's as it's obviously what the tour is promoting so the majority of songs will be from that album


I can see people going to a concert and not knowing the latest album when the singer/band is a huge star and icon with a gigantic number of hits over many decades, and their concerts are an event that people go to just to say they've gone and to experience them once. Examples would be Madonna, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, Kylie, Rolling Stones.

A lot of older artists do play sets that only have a few new songs or are mostly from older albums, but that's artists that have a large number of hits and highly selling older albums.

But Melanie C is not on that level. People don't go to experience her as a must see on their bucket list. If you go to see an artist like Melanie C., you would have to know she doesn't have a huge number of gigantic hits. And surely you would check out her latest album?

It was truly amazing!

I had a blast on both London and Birmingham! I got to meet some amazing people I´ve read for years and some others that are completely new!
Just watched the online concert… it has nothing to do with the real atmosphere and vibe we were living at being at it! We were on a roll!

Finally meeting Melanie after 20 years, it couldn’t be better. She was truly amazing! Had a nice chat, she was all smiles and positivity. The picture turned out great!

So thanks to everyone that I got to see and talk… I will defo. Go back to see her whenever I can do it! 

"Going to see her tonight in Dublin and a bit nervous about how empty the gig is going to be. They dropped 20 tickets into our office so clearly eager to get a crowd in."

"As others have noted it was about half full. The gig itself was grand, I never realised what a talented singer Mel was but the set list needed major work. It was far too heavy on the new album and not enough hits, it felt like there was very little momentum when it came to getting the casuals going and to not even perform a verse of When You're Gone felt like a missed opportuntity.

Her 'banter' was also hilariously shit, consisting of 'it's Easter innit! Dead exciting, long weekend, get in!"

These 2 quotes are taken from a poster on popjustice forum. See this is exactly what I meant when talking about the set list. You always get casuals ending up coming along to tours and you have to try to please them more than Melanie did. I mean had she not done a couple of VOM tracks and done a couple of more known songs all her hardcore fans wouldn't care and be back to her next tour even if it was next month. Where as this casual fan would probably not rush to buy tickets next time given he/she's experience.

Hey Guys!
Can anyone who's done the VIP thing describe what it was like? As in, how many VIP's were there? Did she sign some of your stuff? Could you take a selfie with your own phone?
I'm finally going to meet her in Germany and I'm very curious what it's like!!

No signing, no hugs, no kisses, no selfies, don't even touch your phone while you're in there. That's what they tell you when you get in. And you'll get a cute lanyard.

Please don't be discouraged by Erick's (bizarre) comments. Here are a few replies I've collected from this thread. Enjoy! ;)

SourSpice wrote:This is basically how my meet and greet went down...

Me: *when I'm told I can go in* OH MY GOD
Me: *when I go in and see Melanie* HI
Melanie: Helloooo! How did I sound during soundcheck?
Me: You sounded amazing! This is my first time seeing you live!
Melanie: Oh my god, really? I hope you have an amazing time tonight!
Me: I know I will!

*photos took*

I thanked her after I got the photo, but I don't think she heard me. I'm so insanely happy right now, she was so lovely in the short time we got with her!

Also I was the first person to go in and see her, and I was so nervous. Now I'm just in a state of shock and bliss that I've just met her.

I'd still wish she had done some more classics, though :(
Longing to see ya at Manchester
All the oldies with new arrangements were AMAZING!
PS: She was AMAZING with me at the meet & greet, they didn't let her to sign all my CD's, but as i told her I came from very far away, she said that she would keep the booklets and give them back to me at Manchester <3


Wow, that's so nice!


Yes! She was amazing with me. She hugged me when i started gettin' my eyes wet and my voice cracked, then kissed my right cheek and everything was so perfect <3

Congrats! I'm going tonight. So excited! Were you allowed cameras during any of the VIP stuff? The tickets says "not during your time with Melanie", so I'm wondering if they're allowed during the soundcheck. SO happy we can have cameras during the concert!!!


No cameras or phones on soundcheck and meet & greet. They told us that if we were using one, we would be taken off the vip, so don't do it!


dentistologo wrote:She's the most amazing ever!
I just went to the o2 ritz, and talked to the guy who is doing the checklist and photos of the meet & greet, and he gave me back all the albums i gave to her on the meet & greet in glasgow, all signed! She's really amazing!! I feel so lucky! It's not just that she signed them, she touched me, hugged me and gave me a kiss on my right cheeck <3 I love her so much! <3
Now I'm going to the o2 again to enter for today's concert <3

How Erick wrote it is exactly how it was. Melanie signed our cds and we all (including Melanie) got told off. She snapped back at him. So Erick's comment wasn't bizarre

That's right. The man who was given the lanyard told us that, and if you do that or ask for something to sign, you will be escorted to the door.
But it was the opposite. She didn't sign anything for us, but she got our gifts and was very cute and polite.

To berlin in the meet and greet, it was the opposite. The man who was given the lanyard just told us not to use our phone during the sound check and after we could use our phone with melanie c because there was no professional photographer to take the pictures.
We had the right to use our phone to make sefies, hugs and to make her sign all that was vowed.
I'm glad I did not come for the UK tour, I will have been disappointed for the meet and greet.

Return to “Melanie C”
