M.Shadows w. my FICTION banner by maga-a7x M.Shadows w. my FICTION banner by maga-a7x
That's Matt Shadows with my Fiction's banner, at their show in Madrid (24-06-2011).

Some time ago I submitted a banner I did for the Avenged Sevenfold's show they'd played in Madrid (you can see here the post: [link] ).

So, in the concert, when I see that the lights turn off, and Zacky changed his guitar for his acoustic one... I knew that the next song was So Far Away. Then, in memory of The Rev, I caught the banner and I show it to the guys. While Matt was talking about The Rev, Synyster Gates pointed to my banner, and he applauded me (you can see the video of that moment here: [link] ). In these moment I thought I almost die of emotion and everything. That my IDOL applauded me was like... OH MY GOD.

Then, Matt continued talking about The Rev, when I threw the banner to them. Matt was almost ready to sing, but when he saw the banner, said "That's for us?" and left the micro for take the banner and show it to all the crowd (this moment is also in the video I've said before). The crowd started to scream and applaud so loud, and I started to cry a lot for the emotion of the moment. I didn't believe that MY banner was in hands of MY idol. Really, I never will forget this moment.

Matt Shadows also dedicated to me some words that I will never forget, he said something like "We have an artist between us, that's beautiful, really beautiful, it's a detail". Really. I repeat that I cannot believe that my idol said THIS to me, there, in the concert, in front of me and thousands more, talking about a thing I did with a lot of love, and I didn't imagine that something like this would happen.

Then Matt went to the drums and put the banner in one of the bass drums. When he returned to the micro, I smiled at him so much, because I was very grateful for what he did, and he returned to me the smile. It was a little detail but I NEVER will forget his smile. It was like a "Thank you". Below, the guys started to play "So far Away". Too much emotive.


In relation to the banner in the concert, some songs later, Matt went to the drums again and caught the banner. He said something like, "we have played So Far Away, and Afterlife. Now it's turn to this". While he was talking, he was tying the banner to the micro. I was like, OH MY GOD!? And when he did, he said, "Wow". Really, I almost die of emotion again. And then, everybody thought that the next song was Fiction ( because of the banner) but not, the next song was A Little Piece of Heaven. I ALWAYS dreamed to hear this song in live, and I finally got, but also, with my banner in the micro. Unbelievable. Matt didn't let drop the banner, even when it unleashed from the micro. I really appreciated that.

These moments were in relation with my banner, but I have to say that this show has been the BEST one I've ever seen. For sure. And I think that the guys were VERY proud of us. I hope they come back soon to Spain. :_) :heart:

That's amazingly cool! I wore a shirt that I had made of the Rev to an Avenged Sevenfold concert, and it was really cool because Synyster Gates pointed me out in the crowd. I can only imagine how cool it would be to actually have what you made on stage with the band, though.

Anyways, the banner is very good! You definitely deserve what happened!
