Okay. Fine. I admit. I’m a HUUUUUUUGE fan of TAYLOR SWIFT. She’s my heroine. I admire her and her music, especially her very-colorful-controversial-life. I don’t really give a damn about the number of boyfriends she has had or will have, as long as she is happy, I support her. And seeing her perform live is a dream come true! And I wanna share with you my experience when I first saw her live last year during the RED TOUR MANILA.
Taylor Swift’s Red Tour Manila
When the RED TOUR ASIA (including Manila) was officially announced, me and my other “swiftie” friends were celebrating! We bought our concert tickets on the day it went on sale. After couple of hours, the organizers said that it’s freakin’ sold out. Whew!The preparation began. It’s my first time attending a major concert and I’m not just gonna be seeing someone famous, I’ll be seeing TAYLOR SWIFT!!!!!! Fortunately, Selecta Cornetto was the major sponsor of the event and they were having a promo as well. Of course I joined, not because of the TS Merchandise but because I was hoping to win the “meet & greet” pass. My collection of cornetto lids went crazy. I even pick up those I saw on the streets on the way home. Hahaha. Garbage Collector I know.
One early morning on May 2014, I received a text message from Cornetto saying I won a Taylor Swift bag. And I was like asdfghjkl.
I didn’t win the Meet & Greet pass but I’m thankful anyway 🙂
So this is what actually happened in the Red Tour Concert..
The big day came! We flew from Cebu to Manila with my fellow swiftie friends. It was a hot Friday(June 6, 2014)afternoon when we arrived at NAIA Terminal 4 via Air Asia. Our plane parked beside the official airplane of Taylor Swift’s RED TOUR ASIA by Air Asia. We felt more exciteeeeed!!!
After we got out of the airport, we checked-in at a small dorm near the concert venue then prepared our outfits and banners! I really had fun though.
We arrived at the venue around 5pm and the concert will start at 8PM yet. But there were a lot of swifties lining up outside already.
Inside the venue. I still remember there was one moment (before the concert started) when Taylor went outside and the crowd saw her and everyone was shouting and I panic and then I cried and had goosebumps and I was like ljhkfjakshdlkaslfkasjflks.
The opening song was State of Grace. GOD I LOVE IT!!!! EVERYONE BECAME INSANE!!! SHE WAS SO PRETTY AND FLAWLESS!!! AND I HAD THESE GOOSEBUMPS ALL OVER ME!!!! I STILL REMEMBER!!!!
I never returned to my assigned seat until the end of the concert. Sorry guards. I need to be close to her. I need to. The last song she sang that night was “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”. It was perfect.
This is one of the happiest experience I’ve had in my life so far. I’m really happy to see her live and perform. And I’m begging her to come back here in the Philippines for 1989 World Tour. *Fingers-Crossed*
Lastly, I wanna share with you guys my one and only descent video of her during the concert. The Red Tour Manila finale. Please watch in HD.
