Concerts 2009

The PAP DX Blog celebrated its 10th anniversary last February. Until the end of 2012, with the exception of one post, it was written in Greek. From 2013 onwards after requests from online friends living abroad it switched to English. From time to time I have published some of its Greek posts again, translated in English. Going back to February 2010, its second ever post (the first was an introductory one) was a recap of all the concerts I had been to in 2009, the year before the blog was officially started. And there was a good reason for that. 2009 was probably the year with the most concerts, especially abroad. What's more, two of them (Bruce Springsteen at Hyde Park and Depeche Mode in Barcelona) were released as official DVD's! There were no reviews of the concerts, just a photo and a video (although now, if you click on the heading for each concert you will be taken to its corresponding English review from this blog). And while that post is still online (in Greek), some of the photos that were not uploaded to Blogger, but to ImageShack instead are no longer accessible. So, as part of the still ongoing 10 year "celebration" and since the current situation means that no concerts are currently taking place for me to go to and then post about, I decided  to "reconstitute" this post, in English and with all photographs from Blogger this time so that it can once again be viewed as it was originally intended. Enjoy!
