September 18, 2012
My sister and I decided to buy tickets 2 days after the very first ticket was sold. I guess, we were very lucky since the concert was sold out in just a few weeks.
So, moving forward to the exact day of the concert. My sister and I had to cut classes just to be there early so we can eat dinner, avoid traffic (which was impossible) and get a good parking slot, etc, etc. We left at 4:30 which was still pretty late ‘cause it was so traffic!! We didn’t get to eat dinner but it was a good thing that a new carpark building was constructed beside Araneta ‘cause then we can easily find parking and go straight to the Coliseum.
We didn’t have to wait that long in line ‘cause only a few people were lined up for Patron. So we went straight to our seats and we were so relieved to see how near we were to the stage!
So we took a few pictures and waited for the opening act which is The CAB!
This is the 2nd time we’ve seen them this year. The first one was last March, they were part of the Smash Project 2012 alongside with Dashboard Confessional, Cobra Starship and The Used.
(This photo was taken last March, I deleted their pictures last night ‘cause there wasn’t enough space for Maroon 5’s videos :()
They’re also going back to the Philippines this weekend for their mall tour so I think a lot of people are quite happy about that.
Again.. We had to wait for a good 30 minutes or so for Maroon 5. By the time I looked back, Araneta was jampacked! Amazed to see that a lot of people availed of the standing room tickets as well.
When the lights dimmed, OH MY LORD. People started screaming (including myself) and there was a background sound of a telephone ringing pa so imagine the excitement of 15,000 people when Maroon 5 came out and they started to play Payphone. One of the most magical moments I have ever experienced. =))
As usual, Maroon 5 left the stage na. And this is the part where the crowd chants WE.WANT.MORE! =)) We asked for more, in return we got more, indeed.
It was so fun! But I was expecting more songs from the Overexposed album since it’s an Overexposed Tour after all. I think they only played 6 songs from the said album and the songs I really liked weren’t even included (e.g. Sad, The Man Who Never Lied, Love Somebody, Beautiful Goodbye). Siiiigh. I guess that’s okay since they also sang Wipe Your Eyes and most of their hits in their previous albums so… can’t really complain =))
Slept with a huge smile on my face!!
