My TV Total Koln (Cologne) journey
« on: December 15, 2015, 10:47:45 AM »
Instead of using the shoutbox to talk about things like this in, I thought to put everything regarding my Koln and TV Total journey notes in here. On the 5th of November on my birthday, I went to the TV Total show in Cologne and I haven't posted the video link to see if you can spot me in the crowd or even talked much about it because of other things going on, but after Saturday, I will don't you worry. The video link will come sooner rather than later.

Thank you for all the memories on TV Total and Schlag Den Raab, Stefan Raab. Farewell legend.

Finally, I got around on talking about this and I've been very quiet about it and I know all of you either don't like TV Total, not understanding the show or simply never heard of it, but this is just the most special thing I've ever done in my entire life. You see what happened was my partner wanted to do something for my birthday and so on the month of September, I found out from a site that the tickets have gone on sale and boom, magic happened when my partner said to me that she's got the tickets for TV Total show on my birthday nevertheless.

On 4th November, we went on a coach to Koln (Cologne) and we went to stay in this B&B place where we stayed before since we visited Koln (Cologne) before this trip even happened in June and I was happy as anything, being excited more than anything because of this moment.

I woke up on 5th November and realised that not only it was my birthday, but was gonna be the best day of my life was going to come so before we went to the TV Total studios, we went to this shopping place where my partner wanted to go and since I practically dragged her to Koln (Cologne), I thought she can discover this famous shopping market before we go to the studios. Anyway at three in the afternoon, we headed off to the TV Total studios which was in Mülheim, Koln (Cologne) and the place was absolutely massive as it's seen in this picture here.

Me and my partner went inside and there's already a line of people, waiting to get these vouchers which I still got one of them that I actually wanted to keep to get the tickets. We waited for a while to get them and we had to fill our details out and once that was done, we went back to the desk and got our tickets which looked like this.

Then once that was done, we had to go down to a room where you had to hand in everything, except you're wallet and tissues that were the only things you was allowed to bring into the studio before we joined in the line with people to get ready to go in. I was excited as a happy bunny just to go and see the show, even being in tears of happiness at this point, waiting in line just because of being so happy and excited, even at this moment in time thought I was going to meet Stefan Raab which unfortunately I didn't. After that, we had to give our tickets to the man guarding the door and he ripped the ticket up like the one in the picture before we were sent to do some searching to double check every was out of the pockets and even in the wallet too.

Then I took the time to look at the pictures on the wall that Stefan's done in his career and then we got into this studio which looked like this.

Looks pretty small doesn't it inside of this office building and after we got into the studios, we were shown where to sit together because it's not where you had to pick where to sit, you was basically placed where you was told and we had these earplugs on our chairs, wondering what they were for and then we knew when I'll post the link below what they were used for. Before the show started while everyone was told where to sit and going to their seats to sit down, we saw some clips of singers that appeared on TV Total and even some videos of Raab in Gefahr. Gefahr means danger.

After that, we done some practice runs of the cheering and clapping without Stefan at first just so the crowd understood what they'd had to do before fifteen minutes later, we did another practice run, but this time with Stefan coming up from the lift and basically went down a few things with what he does with his foot like when he slides it across on the floor, it means for everyone to be quiet and let him talk and he said we were the best fans in the world which is of course Stefan would say that to everyone, but he truly meant it and said some funny speeches to us fans before he went to the back.

Now a few minutes later, the actual real show began and I think you'll pretty much see the show for yourselves right here on this link. (If you have adblock on you're computer, you have to disable it to watch it.)


After that, I came out as happy as anything, even in tears again just because I truly experienced the best show I've ever seen in my entire life. I heard from my partner's sister and my partner's sister's husband that we actually got on TV a few days after we got back so see if you can spot me in the crowd. So yes, this is my life experience and I was so glad I got to watch the show before he retired on Saturday.

There you have it, my truly great live experience of seeing a show I've dreamed about for five years all thanks to my partner who didn't have to come to watch TV Total with me because I was willing to go on my own, but she did and if it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have experienced this. Feel free to comment below and see if you can spot me in the crowd if you know what I look like. This was the best birthday present I've ever received in my entire life and no present I will ever get for Christmas and my future birthdays and Christmas will ever replace this because it's very touching to me and it was a day I literally just forgot about everything, but watching the TV Total show.
