My friend, Tiffany and I met at Mall of Asia an hour before we headed to the event location which is the MOA Arena. We made some catching up by eating dinner together and chitchatting about college stuff. :D
I expected that the entrance for the arena would be hectic and that there would be a lot of people screaming but it was actually a little less crowded than we thought; maybe because we arrived half an hour earlier. When we were finally inside, we instantaneously searched the area where our seats were located. I actually didn't know where our seats are located because I wasn't the one who bought the tickets and everything. Later on, I found out that our seats were at the front row of the Patron section, which was just a few feet from the VIP section and the actual stage where the band will be performing. I was beyond excited since this was my first legit concert! ♥
The concert was expected to start at 8:00pm but that didn’t go as planned. It took about 45 minutes to an hour before the band appeared on stage. It wasn’t boring though because upon arriving at the arena, there was already a DJ playing some remixes of songs whilst the concert goers were searching for their seats.
When we noticed that people were already filling up the front row of the VIP section even though they were not part of it, we decided to go there as well because it had a better view. The chairs lined up were no longer for sitting when the band appeared. Everyone, including my friend and I, stepped on the chair to have a better view! xD
1. The City
4. So Far (It's Alright)
5. She Way Out
6. An Encounter
7. Settle Down
8. Heart Out
This is the first part of the list of songs that they performed. When they finished singing their hit “Girls”, Matty quickly said “Bye” and the band disappeared to the backstage. I already searched the internet for their set list beforehand so I knew that they had an encore performance. Although, a lot of people around us where doubting if they’re coming back to the stage because they didn’t know about the encore performance. It took a few minutes before the band went back to the stage again but before they did, fans started screaming “We want more!” It became louder and louder until everyone was saying it. Just when my friend and I decided to join them in shouting those words, it changed. It became “We want ‘Sex’!” pertaining to another of their hit songs called “Sex”.
16. Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You
It ended with each of the band member throwing things for the crowd to catch. Namely, drumsticks and guitar picks.
