I was just planning to watch just one video on YT today -- Take That's Apache 2006 video from their Ultimate Tour DVD.
But those related videos enticed me to watch the other Take That vids, most especially the Beautiful World DVD.
As I was going through the songs one by one from those two aforementioned tours, I remembered just how fun and exciting the concerts in the UK are.. They are a spectacle of lights, sound, and special effects that would really make you want to come back for more.
I miss it. I miss it badly.
As mentioned in my previous post, I was lucky enough to watch Boyzone while I was in England. And I realized that the international acts that have concerts here in Manila are NOWHERE in comparison to the UK tours I've watched so far.
Granted that I know shipping all of those props would be very expensive from overseas to MNL but still... I LONG for that spectacle. I paid a hell of a lot of money to watch, then why can't I get that same experience??? If most of these artists could have great shows in Taiwan, Japan, or Australia, then why not here?
Manila: No fireworks, dancers, light shows, trapdoors, awesome props, front row seats are saved for non-fans & definitely overpriced tickets.
London/UK shows: the whole deal. You'll feel like your every penny is worth watching the concert for. PLUS if you're a fan, you can get a chance to get FRONT ROW SEATS. [I'm a testament to this as I got 6th row seats in the Boyzone concert WITHOUT the politics of asking someone from the promoter, the venue coordinators, etc... I just booked a ticket and BAM! Got that seat.] I mean. Why in the world would you give front row seats to people who aren't even HUGE fans of a band? It'll be like a huge humiliation to a band if they look out in the front rows and see bored people. Not cool.
Now I'm really thinking that instead of watching concerts here, I'll scrap that out altogether, pool the funds, go abroad, and watch THERE instead.
It'll be an adventure and a sight-seeing tour as well.
Any friends that are game for this adventure? =)
