SHINee FAN MEET IN CHICAGO 5/8/16 . . .
It doesn't get any better than this. The Chairman's Daughters were fortunate enough to join a nearly sold out venue with fans from all over the U.S. and the world, at the Rosemont Theatre, Chicago, IL Sunday 5-8-16 for SHINee's FIRST SOLO EVENT in the U.S.
We are normally funny and descriptive but in all honesty, in this case . . . the videos and pics speak for themselves. Every Shawol has different levels of love, obsession, and loyalty to their fandom and Bias's. We are no different. Our experience was life-changing. There are no words to convey what we were going through from the moment we got in the car in Indiana, headed for our 'DAY WITH SHINee'.
There were five of us. We arrived early, checked into the Crown Royal Hotel directly across from the venue, with a room on the 9th floor overlooking the Rosemont. Just knowing SHINee was about to set foot on Chicago turf was enough to set our hearts into overdrive.
There was already a merchandise area set up in the lobby, at 9:30 a.m., and shortly thereafter across the street on the steps of the venue. By 12:30 we were hanging out by the Stage Doors waiting for them to arrive, after hearing they had hit the Chicago airport. For 4 (FOUR) HOURS . . . we stood in the sun with other anxious fans awaiting their arrival. Sadly, when they did arrive, a van blocked our view and it was difficult to catch them entering. But, no matter. We were all breathing the same air, and walking on the same soil!
The show started about 15 min. late, but after thinking we would have 1 1/2 (one & a half) hrs and 4 (four) songs, we were privileged instead to get 2 (TWO) solid hours of our amazing, adorable SHINee. We got talking, games, 6 (SIX) of our favorite songs, and a touching video presentation that surprised everyone.
We are sad to have said goodbye, but pray that there will be good news in the future, as it was mentioned several times about a return visit for a regular concert. You can bet The Chairman's Daughters will be there . . . come hell or high water!!!
Thanks to 'Subkulture Entertainment', 'SHINee Forums Int'l', and 'SM Entertainment' among others for giving us the experience of a lifetime.
Note: The adorable 2 yr old is the nephew of one half of The Chairman's Daughters!!!
'View' ends at 3:12 on the video, and the final goodbye begins with Key. (All of their English was so cute.) Seeing our Congratulations banners for their 8th year nearly brought tears to his eyes, and getting emotional he quickly turned it over to Minho. It was all an emotional roller coaster ride from then until the end. Watch to see why we love these 5 guys so incredibly much!!
