The Coronas live in the O2 in Dublin ( 14th Dec. 2012)
As you know, we go to gigs frequently and I'm not hesitant at all to state that this has been the best concert we have been to this year, maybe because we have become one of the Coronas biggest fans! It was their first biggest concert in Ireland and we were part of it! Danny's face (the lead singer) said it all, he was over the moon!! 14,000 people filled the O2 arena, this is something that not all the groups can achieve in their first big concert in their home country!! They are so humble and so talented! We were standing very close to the stage, we didn't stop moving or singing along, we couldn't!! There were 2 supporting bands before them, we missed the first one Roisin but were lucky to see the talented Irish musician Ryan Sheridan! What an energy! It was the first time I have seen him and he really made us move! The Coronas came up at around 21.15 and left at around 23.00. They played their hits of their album "Closer to you" but they also played some hits we all wanted to here such us: "San Diego","Heroes of ghosts ,"listen dear" and "Someone else's hands". They interacted with the audience all the time , there were a few moments of silence when Danny just stared at the public with a smile from ear to ear enjoying the moment. We all started cheering!!. We were lucky to meet Danny O'reilly (The Coronas lead singer) at the Dublin National Concert Hall this year when they played a couple of songs with the RTE orchestra at a concert we went to, when they finished, Danny and his girlfriend seat to see the rest of the concert and of course we didn't lose the chance to have a photo taken with him! He was so approachable and friendly, we couldn't say a word, just look like stupid teens to have the photo taken!! I hope fame doesn't change him and I do hope they grow internationally. They are so great live!! If you ever have the chance to see them, don't miss the opportunity! Since we saw them for the first time at the Aviva at the Script concert, we haven't stopped following them whenever they play in Dublin , there we are! Our goal is to go and see them in a country they have not become famous yet to sing along!!
