Simple Plan fan flies across country
IT IS simply not enough to see your favourite band perform in concert only once when they tour the country.
Diehard Simple Plan fan Eve Michele Como last night attended her third Get Your Heart On concert in less than a week.
And she came all the way from Western Australia to do it.
Eve flew from Perth last week with her mother Jenni to track the Canadian band.
It started on the Gold Coast last week, continued in Brisbane on Saturday before finally making it to the Caloundra RSL last night.
It was the pair's first trip to Queensland and well worth it, Eve said.
"I'm a walking billboard for the band. I've converted plenty of people ... that's why mum is with me.
"I just open their minds to Simple Plan."
The 20-year-old been a fan of the band since she was 12.
"I just heard one of their songs on the radio ... and just fell in love with them. They're funny, really relatable and nice with fans," she said.
"When you meet them in person they're exactly the same as they are on stage. They will do anything for a fan.
"They love doing their Aussie accents, they're getting pretty good at them now."
She's met them at airports, acted as their photographer in concerts and even had her cover versions of the band's songs re-tweeted by them to their followers.
As a member of international fan club the SP Crew, she is given early access to videos and can apply to attend sound check parties.
Before the show in Brisbane, she showed the rockers a photograph she had taken of them at their first encounter at Perth Airport in 2005.
Eve and her mum weren't the only ardent Simple Plan fans on the Coast for last night's concert, with one fan reportedly attending her eighth concert in 10 days and another travelling from America.
