I’ve been so MIA on blogging but this one can’t slip – LANY’s first arena concert in Manila!
The moment I heard that they were doing a full-on concert here in Manila, I booked a ticket without hesitations! All-in. Cash out. Hahaha! ‘Twas something that is worth it for me. Tickets weren’t that expensive though. I would’ve wanted to get a VIP but I wasn’t sure if I can manage to line up early to get a good view and stand the whole time of the concert, and also, I invited Bryan and I don’t think he’d want to be in VIP. hehe
I thought I wouldn’t make it because I was confined in the hospital over that weekend and still not that feeling well on the day of the concert, but I made it! I went by normal commute – bus and train, whew!
Anyway, how did I discover LANY and why I love them? I am on Spotify all the time, like, all the freakin’ time. People would always see me with earphones on and on a high volume. Haha! (I’d look like a snob when I didn’t say hi back whenever someone says hi, but I proabably didn’t hear you). I heard LANY’s ILYSB played first on Spotify Discover and I got hooked in an instant. What’s not to love in ILYSB? I listened to their songs and ugh. I cannot unlove LANY. I. Just. Can’t.
Ofcourse I am a fan of other artists, either foreign or local. But never did I want to get a concert ticket so bad in any of their concert. And then LANY happened. I went online on time and had to excuse myself from a meeting just to book tickets!!! I don’t want to get off my seat until I have reserved my seats in that arena!!! I wanted it soooo bad that I’d cry if I didn’t score a slot, but luckily, I did! I’m thrilled to be seated near the side of the stage and I wouldn’t ask for more (well if the VIP has seats then I could prolly reconsider. LOL).
It. was. just. so unreal. I just stood there right on my seat, I almost did not manage to sit at all. I was just savouring the moment. Grabe. Kiligs! Hay. Can’t wait for their next album and concert!
Here’s Hericane (full and stripped version) and ILYSB for their finale.
