At last… Maroon 5 made Manila wonder no more! Marso 6, 2008Posted by Lenggai in Good News.
Considering the fact that I only had less than two hours of sleep (out of euphoria perhaps? I was able to buy last-minute Upper Box A SRO tickets the night before)… then I had to work from 9 am until past 6pm… I still wonder how I was able to find the energy to shout my lungs out and dance like crazy in Maroon 5’s concert last night at the Araneta Coliseum.
Call it adrenalin rush…
But I wouldn’t be exaggerating when I say that the group’s more than one hour performance is worth the four thousand ticket… actually, M5’s concert cost me almost eight grand because the second ticket was my graduation gift for my younger sister.
Aside from being drop-dead-gorgeous, M5 frontman Adam Levine was very engaging all throughout their performance. The group’s Pinoy fans went crazy especially after he spoke in Tagalog during their introduction…
Who would ever forget his almost flawless (minus the usual, irritating foreign accent) countdown: Isa, dalawa, tatlo, apat! (One, two, three, four…) before singing The Sun? I had it captured on video in my cellphone, but it was rejected when I tried to upload it in You Tube a while ago.
The clip exceeded the 10-minute allowance and honestly, I don’t have any idea how I am going to shorten it… still, I’d rather leave it at that since I don’t want to do anything that might mess the whole chunk up.
Anyway, here is another shaky video of Adam singing Won’t Go Home Without You. Shaky because the main goal of this clip is to capture the moment… and I was so excited I couldn’t keep my hands still!
Oh and yeah, at times, you’d hear me singing… and FYI… it’s my phone, so… shut up!
With that voice… that kind of charisma and “connection” to his audience, it is no wonder why we just Won’t Go Home Without Adam!
…and after telling his loyal fans that last night was one of their group’s favorite concerts… I just hope that Adam and his equally-talented bandmates will make it a point to come back… soon.
