LINKIN PARK Living Things World Tour Live in Manila (August 13, 2013 @ Mall of Asia Arena)
More than a decade. That’s how long I waited to see them perform live. I’ve been a Linkin Park fan since 6 years old. The first time they visited the country, I was only at 5th grade, making it rough for me to watch them, due to A) my age B) my savings.
What can I say tho… THE WAIT WAS WORTH IT TO THE VERY BITS OF MY SOUL. Perfection, that’s what their concert was. I may be exaggerating things but f*ck yeah, it’s just damn solid to sing along, head bang, jump like there’s no tomorrow and scream my lungs out getting my whole existence enjoy their hits! I actually didn’t care whether my shots would be full of noise or blurred, I let go and get my self absorbed by the show.
Favorite song they played that night? Every single one. But the Transformers OST Medley (Leave out all the rest / Shadow of the day / Iridescent) stood out. Chester Bennington’s voice + Mike Shinoda’s awesomesauce rap + Joe Hahn’s “linkin step” + Rob’s smashing drum beats + Brad and Dave’s lead-bass combo = a night that engraves a special remembrance to every Linkin Park fan’s memory.
Crossed out one of the awesome achievements included in my bucket list. :) URBANDUB performed as front act, too. They were amazing as ever. Still filled with grand emotion. 21 songs (+5 from Udub) dayum! And yep, it feels great to have a FREE UPPER BOX to LOWER BOX upgrade.
Hands down, Linkin Park. Rock on! Come back soon :)
