Selena Gomez #RevivalTourMNL

I would like to share tidbits of how awesome Selena Gomez was last night, I couldn’t help it that I wanted to just blog and share the feeling. Well there goes my bucketlist, Selene and Demi (twice already). For so many years as a concert attendee this is the only time I decided to post a blog about it- since during the days I don’t have a blog yet and I was newbee at blogging. I love going to concerts (That’s sounds one of those best places to bring a date haha).

Anyways, Selena was amazing – she bloom from her shy teeny bopper Disney days to like a total performer like Beyonce (Beyoncé is still the queen- hoping to watch her concert). Total performer, she even played a keyboard to one of her songs. Quick story to share: Just a few days I was in Toronto, Beyoncé had a concert at Roger’s Stadium. The tour guide mentioned it to us while we were riding a boat viewing the skyline.- Thanks a lot wished I knew and came earlier. That should be next time my itinerary when I visit international waters check for any events and concerts. Too bad my friend asked me to watch DNCE but we went uphill to camp – but I love being in one with  nature something seldom I do in Manila.

Anyways, I love every wardrobe she wore at the concert- very edgy and chic. Pieces styled by Sami Miro who came on tour with her. Well I think she had 5 outfit changes in total. My fave looks were the one she wore a robe with a black top and matchy boxing shorts with knee-high-heeled boots next would be she wore this athleisure getup with a hoodie- the girl has abs. Then the classic slit black dress.

She slayed every song and gladly most of the songs she played ones I knew! Like Come and Get It, Revival, Kill Em With Kindness, Same Old Love,  I want you to know, Hands to Myself- current fave, Who says- fave song since I was in college. The concert run for an hour and a half- it was awesome. Looking forward to my other concert happenings and hopefully I can post them.

Before the concert – As usual the concert didn’t start on time – what’s new. Tips: bring a Powerbank or anything that could entertain you while waiting. You can eat inside while waiting too since food and drinks coming from outside is prohibited. Darren Espanto was the front act- been seeing this kid all the time to every event I go to, kid with talent that’s why my parents were rooting for him when he was starting at The Voice Kids.

People would ask me is it fun to go to concerts alone or with someone. Well I can’t say which is much better because both has pros and cons – depends on your perspective. If you are alone, yeah you are lonely but there are other concert goers that go alone too and maybe you can make friends, have the guts to introduce to yourself (but not all your complete information maybe you can talk about the artist and some knowledge you know – it’s better to be safe and you just met the person). Once the concert starts people start to do their own thing while watching. If you go with someone, yes you have someone to talk too and take pictures of you- definitely have a good time.

How about you guys? Any concert experiences and tips? 🙂

Everyone was party ready wearing their colored and denim shorts,
statement shirts and breezy tank tops, since the theme and hashtag is
#RaveWithTheWaves, (other hashtags #DLSUJackoWacko #JackoWackoDLSCU)  so as expected get ready get wet and wild.
There were only a limited number of tickets that were sold (The event was sold-out btw), A source told me that there were lot
of hopefuls that wanted to join in the event, but just patiently stayed out,
there were hundreds of them, I am not sure if they were all catered since
limited tickets, I guess there were also walk-ins who got lucky. I don’t blame
them, from a far you get to see how exciting it was. At registration you get a
free glow stick.

At the start of the event, it’s anyone’s choice whether they
want to grab a bite to eat from the food trucks. There were loads of food
trucks to choose from, have no idea where to start and the good thing there
were free drinks and light liquor to taste, or have fun with the festivities,
that Jacko Wacko organizers prepared. There were dfferent inflatables to enjoy,
balloon fight, games and what’s fun, playing with bubbles! (Hello who doesn’t adore bubbles!)  It’s like Coachella but the fun you get to be
splashed by water and foam.

image

Known faces came to join, SM youth ambassadors and models,
LA Aguinaldo and Tommy Esguerra came to party as well and others. Many 6500
attendees came ready to party and stoked to hear the line up of bands,
performers and DJs.The crowd was not only massive in number, from 4:30 pm to 4 am, the crowd never fail to stay hyped up. The line ups were amazing, The
famous Up Dharma Down played their top hits, Performances by Ace Ramos, Marc
Marasigan, Katsy Lee, Jessica Milner, Lucio Pua and  Ron Thug on mic . Featuring Yolanda Moon,
Maude, Puls, DJ Young Life, Nico Ylanan, Cullen Diaz, Edleen Lim and RolfM o
and many more till the after party, DJs’
played to their hearts’ content to  the beat of chart topping hits. The Playlist
were the bomb!

As it gets darker, the crowd gets wilder and to make their
concert experience way unforgettable, they got splashed by water coming from
the hose of the firetrucks (Note: everybody
was safe)
, there was continuous bombing of water and foam too,  till 3am. Just a note that people
should have brought towels and spare clothes to change.  People should have their phones and gadgets
waterproof, and should have a strong immune system- just saying . The downside, since the ground got wet, it got a bit
slimy and muddy as of expected. Then another note of the downside, the public
bathrooms, were a bit unsanitary since there were lot of attendees. Well
despite that, Everyone definitely enjoyed,  had fun ever and can’t wait for next year! Now
I feel jealous of not attending because of other blogger commitments that day,
anyways there is a next year. Thanks to Lianne (@liannetorres) and Joan
(@joanreally) for filling in for me at the last minute and thanks #WazzupPilipinas
for me to represent you once again!.
