The roads are ribbons of red lights and revving engines. There is the frenzied hurry of thousands of fans as they descend on the city. Clusters of families, friends and faithful groupies filter into the stadium. The air is electric and the stage comes to life. Drums, screams and songs fill the arena. This is somebody’s dream-come-true, and a photo opportunity for everyone else. The music fills the night sky and the stars compete with the crowds. With a final flash of cameras and fireworks, it is suddenly over. The magic turns to mayhem as the stadium empties and thousands of fans stumble out. They search for family members and friends and faces in the crowd; calling out names and following figures.
