My best D-A-D related experince must be during the club tour in may 2005. We went to signing in Stereo Studio, came early enough to Musikcafeen to have dinner next to the band and after the amazing show in the tight atmosphere, Torleif signed the D-A-D skatebord and drew a large Helpyourselfish...

I had been looking forward to the great Wigwam Tour all summer, and most of all to listen to my favorite band D-A-D. But then during my vacation I accidently heard on the radio that the whole tour was off! The summer was ruined and I just looked sadly at my worthless ticket.
But luck found us afterall, my friend and I went to the making up concert at 10-øren at Amager. The atmosphere was great and I knew the day would end in a big bang - D-A-D closing the event.
My most magic moment with D-A-D, is my first live concert with them ever. I felt in love with their music this summer, so i'm one of the new in the crowd of D-A-D fans, but definitely already one of their biggest!
26 th. of July and the 'Dirty Fairytale' was about to start.
My D.A.D moment is taking place in Phoenix, Arizona back in 1990. I was an exchange student in the US. When I left Denmark in 1989 D.A.D had just released there "no fuel left" album. I saw their show at Grand Palace in Odense.
My most magic D-A-D-related moment happened in my freshment year of high school (gymnasium) in 2006. I was just started on Varde Gymnasium and the only people I knew was my brother, Gabriel, and my friend from prep. school, Tobias. After about a month I started a band with 4 other guys; my friend Tobias on drums, two guys called mads and kasper on guitar, a guy called Amir on vocal and me on bass guitar. Then there was this event on the school were the students could go up on a stage in front of the whole school and do a number. We decided to play Everything Glows by D-A-D, of course.
Back in 2000, when they came out with EG, I was only 13 years old. Two years before my dad has surprised me at Christmas with a signed Psychopatico album, from the midnight release, which my parents had denied me to go to, cause I was too young. This time I convinced my dad, that he had to go with me, to GUF to the midnight release. But to stand at Nørrebro (think it was) at midnight, for a little kid was kind a weird, cause everywhere were grown ups with tattoos of Molly, the Helpyourselfish-Fish etc, and there I was I my ugly green jacket and my dad.
It was July 18 -97 in Svedala that I saw D-A-D life for the first time with my friend Robert. The evening began with that we biked from Malmoe to Svedala, without intending on that buses go to Svedala, he he. After one hour cycling we were there. Well in front so, we searched after a place to camp on that the result became a 20 minutes' cycling back to the concert. The concert was as a dream comes true, we have of course seen our idols, with its after dark in the end, has not been happier. On the road back was we so fond that we had taken ourselves here, very hoarse of all singing.
In somthing about 2004, "Ønskefronden" asked D-A-D if they wanted to play on Odder gymnasium. it was this boys (who just survived cancer) biggest whish. and fortunetly they agreed. I remenber the whole concert as very intimate. we were only 250 people, and I was up in the front, almost touching them. The time was standing still, especially when they played "Reconstrucdead". I just remember Jesper going totally crazy. never seen a better D-A-D concert. plus, Jesper agreed, very friendly to give me his autograf. That was big.

My most magic D-A-D - related moment was actually at my first concert with you guys, at "Grøn koncert" 2008. I know that it isn't a really big thing for you guys, but for me, it was like the entire word had come to a standstill! I had eye contacts (mostly with Jacob and Laust) with you guys!!!! (ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRHHHHH) I know that you have heart this many times, but you're the BEST band I ever had known! And just to listen to my favourite band live, after so many months knowing you guys, was so fantastic!
The date is October 30, 2005. D-A-D play Aalborg Kongres & Kultur Center with the new Magtens korridorer as warm up. I will attend the concert with one of my friends. He dragged me there, despite me insisting on that it wouldn't be anything for me. However he persuaded me. Half an hour before we would meet a big quarrel between me and my father broke out. I thought my father's drug addiction had come to dominate too much, but he didnt't think that a 14-year-old boy should interfere with that! I went away, slamming the door, and I don't think I have ever been that angry before!
I have been a DAD fan since the mid 80s. The music has always been very important for me. Some years ago I had a hard time in my life. I was deeply depressed for several months. DAD visited Odense on the first tour with Laust. My friend brought me to the concert. When they played Jacketless in December and the snow was falling from the ceiling, I had a strong feeling that this was the first time in many months that I was really happy and peaceful. This moment will always be remembered. D-A-D rules!

My biggest D-A-D moment needs a little explanation.
A few years ago, D-A-D came to Arenaen in Århus DK to give concert. The concert was the one where D-A-D the same evening received an Honour achievement in Copenhagen.
I was attending 5 grade in school and my older brother was a big fan of Disneyland After Dark. As you do in that age, I looked up to him so I began listening to the great rock band as well and got a bolo tie to match Stig. For a year I listened to my classmates telling me what is that you are listening to, you are strange, that is no good etc. But I could not help my self, Disneyland After Dark was the band for me, but still it was very hard to listen to all the bullying from my classmates for more than a year.
