Wooooaah! I still can't get over the excitement last night Feb 27, 2010. Yes, I watched the concert of... guess who?.. (whispering) The Backstreet Boys. And yes their back again! I've been denying it to everyone who were asking bout my shout out on Facebook like 'Yey! Excited na ko', 'Bukas na!', '..No I can't resist and I can't be hit, I just can't escape this love..' (a line from their new single). A friend of mine even asked me kung in love daw ako. hahahha! If they only knew, I was a big fan before... and I guess it still lives in me as always. Just like a HS student who giggles everytime I hear a song from them. Anyway, I'd like to share this one night concert experience...
January 7 2010 when I saw a schoolmate, Michelle, post a shoutout saying 'WTF! gusto ko manood ng concert nila! waaaaaa!' Na-curius ako kasi someone asked kung boyband b yun. I'm a boyband fan at heart I admit. hahahha! Sabi ni Michelle, It's on Feb 27. She doesn't want to share the name. I totally understand why. Because even I won't share it in public. No one would want to be tagged as JOLOGS. Anyway, I googled who's coming on that date. And yun na nga... BSB Live in Manila - This is Us tour. Right after that I texted my HS friend Sarah. A fan of Nick. But she said break na sila so hindi ko na sya pinilit. Naghanap na ko ng iba - my cousin Ate Jing na katulad ko ding DORA. After a week, bumili na ko ng tiket. hahaha! oo hindi ako excited. hindi talaga promise. And
waited for that day...
Yun na nga, I posted shoutouts kasi mahirap pigilan ang excitement no. And here it come... Day we've been waiting for for almost 2 months.
We arrived in Araneta at around 6pm and saw a few, about a hundred fifty people, already lined up. So nakipila na kami. Around 6:20, they opened the gate and may line ulit. whew! They are still rehearsing inside so 7pm when they let us in sa venue. It's surprising to see a lot of people still wanting to see them. At mas surprising lalo dahil maraming boys na nandun. I thought it'll be a girls night out. We were able to sit on 2nd row near the middle so kitang kita yung stage kahit nsa Upper box kami. I noticed walang projector. I feel sorry for the people at the back kasi nagbayad din naman sila. They expected to watch them on big screen. Well, wala na kong magagawa dun.
we were about to leave when I saw this poster. Sa dinami dami ng inattempt kong magandang shot, ngaun ko lang na-realize, sana pla yung poster n lang pinicturan ko!
Here's the songs that they played (or should I say, here are the songs I remembered! hehe!)
Backstreet's Back (which is saktong sakto coz their back! so back!)
We've got it goin
