14 July 2011



David arrived in Indonesia on July 14th and was greeted by adoring fans.  I stayed up way past my bedtime to watch it unfold via live stream.  It was thrilling to vicariously experience the fans’ anticipation and mounting excitement.  I had to laugh at their decision early on to maintain composure and not scream.  Well, that idea quickly flew out the window once they caught a glimpse of the band members, and it completely evaporated once they saw David!!!  Here’s a video showing the final moments.

    Go here to view the complete final segment of live stream (approximately 29 minutes in length). The band members appear at about the 15 minute mark, and David at the 26 minute mark.

    Thanks for posting this, Katheryn. It was so exciting to see—and hear—the fans screaming! I wonder what David was thinking as he was immediately surrounded by adoring fans.

    Thanks for posting Katheryn! Isn’t it incredible how much love David and send around the world! The fans were so excited that they couldn’t help but passing on loving hugs to each other after he has finished his walk to the van. He is sooo adorable! I’d be doing the same thing if I saw him that close-up!

    That’s awesome footage. Thank you for posting, Katheryn. It’s amazing what cool composure David maintains in the midst of such riotous behavior. I guess this is what he meant when he wrote in The Other Side of Down, “No, no, nothing’s gonna break my stride”. Screaming fans can be the ultimate nerve-wracking experience. I love it when they sing There’s Something ’bout Love. David seems to know that he gives so much love to his fans that when they give it back, it’s going to be a hard hit. He braces himself and takes it all in stride. With a big loving smile!

    minja: Yes, the auditory part of the video definitely adds to the drama and excitement! As daunting as it must be, I think David is gratified to see such fan support at airports.

    3cota: I also loved watching the fans spontaneously hugging each other! Such an experience is best shared with like-minded friends who understand just how you feel.

    topazjazz: Whatever butterflies David is feeling inside, he certainly maintains his composure. He’s just a marvel in so many ways, isn’t he?!
