Just for today we are veering away from our usual beauty posts to share to you our BIGBANG ALIVE CONCERT TOUR experience. Yes, we were there. We have to say, great job to the staff in MOA Arena for organizing the lines and the entrance stuffs well. We were able to get inside very quickly.
And so, here we were getting cozy very early on in our Upper Box seats... we were very near the Gen Ad first line, they were behind us.. but nonetheless... we had a great view.
Plus, as bonus (or consolation) our free Jeju Fan's Designs were all TOP. I exchanged mine for the GD fan because most of the Gen Ad people sitting behind us wanted the TOP fans, they even took the fans of the those who weren't in their seats yet. Haha!
The crowd was really wild that night. They were all screaming even before the concert even started. Even with just the music videos playing, they'd show their support and love by screaming and singing along with the songs. There were a number of times that we were misled into thinking that the boys were peeping behind the curtains because of all the excitement.
So the show started about 15 to 20 minutes late, which was already pretty much on time compared to the last concert we attended. It started with this AVP of the 5 capsules being deployed containing the 5 boys and as the curtain fell, we see them emerge and start off the whole concert.
We were pretty much on a high so we can't really remember all the songs that they sang... but definitely our favorites from the Alive album and Still Alive Album: "Feeling", "Blue", Bad Boy", "Still Alive", "Wings", and "Fantastic Baby" were sang. They also sang our favorite songs from their past albums like: "Haru Haru", "Heaven", "Lies", Liz's favorite "Cafe", "Love Song" and so many more.
GD even treated us to acapella versions of songs from his new album: "Crayon" and "One of a Kind".
Of course there were also the solos... GD and TOP's "Knock Out" and "High High", Daesung with "Wings", Taeyang's medley of "Only Look At Me" and "Wedding Dress", and Seungri's medley of "Strong Baby" and "What Can I Do?". TOP closed the whole concert with his Tabi Dance Moment which Taeyang coaxed him into. :) Thank you Young Bae!
All these plus all the awesome choreographies, fireworks, Segways and bike props, and AVPs that changed according to the theme of the songs, it was a very satisfying concert experience indeed.
And the crowd sang and danced with the boys for the rest of the night. The ear shattering screams of love and support from the fans made showed them how big their Filipino fan base is. We were actually deaf for an hour after the concert, but it was fun!
We were somewhat envious of the people in the lower box seats who were sitting beside the stage. They got to take home a lot of Bigbang's personal effects, like Daesung's jacket, towel, and shirt(??? not sure about the shirt), GD's t-shirt and towel, Taeyang's shirt... and others which we were not able to notice. Fans also handed them items to remember them by... I think a kind of rag doll/bean doll was handed to GD, a panda stuff toy to Seungri, and a special something to TOP ;) , and let's not forget, a ROCKING MEMORY from us crowd to them. :)
The concert ended on a high note with a very satisfying LONG encore performance and again TOP's solo dance... the boys expressed how much they've enjoyed their stay and kept saying "Salamat" and "Mahal ko kayo" apparently taught to them by our Sandara Park, 2NE1's Dara, which was by the way part of the crowd that night. :)
They left with the promise of coming back soon and very soon. Hopefully they do. :)
And of course, we went and bought our souvenir light sticks... though it's not the crown one... but then again... they did say that they'll be back... so here we go gathering funds for that next time for better seats and for better glow sticks. :)
Took a picture of Liz's stocking... she wore this to a party, never got a scratch... wore it to Bigbang concert and this is what happened. Oh, and we got to test Liz's La Senza stick on bras. After the heat of standing in line and the heat of the day, plus after all the jumping she did and the dancing, from 3 pm to 11 pm they stayed there reliably. So hoorah for them!
So there, tomorrow we'll be back to posting beauty related stuffs. And to our beloved BIGBANG... See you guys very soon! Do come back, we'll be here waiting. :)
