MCS Concert Round-up: The Maine Back in Manila and Not a Second Too Late

How did we ever survive for more than two years without live music, especially rock shows? Maybe sometimes it felt like we were on the verge of breaking down … and then The Maine came around.

Rock band The Maine is back for the seventh time, with Manila as their only stop in Southeast Asia this year.

Before the Arizona-based group took the stage at the Skydome, Filipino rock band Written by the Stars opened the show with five songs, including “Isolation,” “Sunset Boulevard,” and “Runaway.”

The Maine started with a short video, with Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” playing in the background. Through the smoke from the fog machines, the crowd catches a glimpse of the band they’ve been waiting, for and the energy was on another level. The Maine’s first song in their set was “Sticky,” an earworm from their latest album “XOXO: From Love and Anxiety in Real Time.” Everyone was jumping and singing along, and it was glorious.

Before continuing with “Like We Did (Windows Down)” frontman John O’Callaghan said, “Phones away!” Without a doubt, the best way to watch a concert is to experience it. In between performing “Numb Without You,” John also reminisced about what it was like just stuck at home during the pandemic. “Turn around. We’re in a room full of fcking people right now. Live music is back, baby. So here’s what I need: I need three years of sitting inside, all that sht that you’ve built up, sitting in your computer chairs, sitting in your bed, sitting at home. I need three years of energy tonight, okay?” There are only a few artists who can literally rock a venue, and The Maine is one of those bands. And when the fans were asked to jump, the Skydome was shaking.

The show (which is more like a party at this point) continued with “Am I Pretty,” “Love in Real Time,” “Slip the Noose,” “High Forever,” “Dirty, Pretty, Beautiful,” and “Taxi.”

The band then asked the crowd “to be here in this room for this song,” which was “How Do You Feel.” It still amazes me how music can heal you, and the feeling of hearing this song live while singing along with The Maine and other fans is beyond words.

For “We All Roll Along,” some fans were given the mic — karaoke style. Everyone was clearly having the best time, and it was an ongoing joke that the band will be playing for five and a half hours. Their set continued with “Diet Soda Society,” “Don’t Come Down,” and “Bad Behavior.”
The Maine also sang their unreleased song “Box in a Heart” before continuing with “Loved You a Little.”

One fan put up a sign that said, “Can I play ‘Run’ with you guys?” The next thing I knew, this fan named Lance was up on stage, playing the guitar with the rest of the band. The Maine: making fans’ dreams come true since 2007.

The crowd was shouting some requests for the band, so they also played “Into Your Arms.” John said they haven’t played that song in four years.
The last songs in their set were “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu” and the best closing song “Another Night on Mars.” Because of artists who make you feel less alien, the world feels like a better place right after a concert.
With the talent and heart that The Maine pours into their every show, it’s no surprise that even after 15 years, their dedicated and passionate fans continue to rival the band’s energy from the start until the very end of their set. Every show is a family reunion, and it’s an incredible experience every time.

The Maine Manila 2022 Setlist:
-Like We Did (Windows Down)
-Numb Without You
-Am I Pretty?
-Love in Real Time
Slip the Noose
-High Forever
-Dirty, Pretty, Beautiful
-How Do You Feel?
-We All Roll Along
-Diet Soda Society
-Don’t Come Down
-Bad Behavior
-Box in a Heart (live debut)
-Loved You a Little
-Into Your Arms
-Black Butterflies & Déjà Vu
-Another Night on Mars

MCS Roundup: All Time HIGH for All Time Low

All Time Low staged a highly triumphant return to the Manila Concert Scene with their recent MOA Arena Show. The venue was filled with their fans all locked and loaded for a good time – and the show truly did not disappoint as the boys showed everyone a fun time. Pop punk is indeed is alive with these Hustlers!

Kicking off the party was Chicosci. The hometown heroes blasted off with a set of their hits such as “Paris”, “Raspberry Girl”, and “Seven Black Roses” to name a few. The four-piece band went off-the-wall triggering a high-octane performance. “Ang saya!” exclaims front-man Miggy Chavez. And that shot of joy was a wonderful way to warm the stage for All Time Low.

Opening with the trio of “Lost In Stereo”, “Dark Side” and “Sleeping In”, All Time Low proved that they are still the energetic bunch we enjoy. Alex, Jack, Zack and Rian collectively dropped a set-list composed of their biggest hits such as “Weightless” to newer ones like “Monsters”, plus surprises such as the crowd-requested “Therapy” and a cover of The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights”. In between songs, Alex would share how honored they are to be in front of such a massive audience and how coming back to Manila is always a treat. To which, the audience returned with much adulation. Cheering, jumping, singing along to the band, this crowd at MOA Arena matched the high energy of All Time Low.

After an 18-song concert, All Time Low bade farewell in the midst of a confetti rain and loud roars. Taking a bow and waving goodbye…we’re pretty sure we’ll gladly see them again. After all, who doesn’t wanna have fun at an ATL show?

The Maine hits Manila this weekend

The long wait is over. After almost three years, rock band The Maine will come back to Manila for a one-night concert on August 27 at the Skydome, SM City North EDSA. Formed in 2007, the band is celebrating their 15th anniversary this year.

They also released their 8th studio album “XOXO: From Love and Anxiety in Real Time” in 2021, and John, Jared, Kennedy, Pat and Garrett are more than ready to perform new songs (and their other hits, of course!) for their Filipino fans.

Throughout the years, The Maine has continued to evolve and grow with their fans, and it is exciting to see what they have in store for their comeback. One thing is for sure: the connection with their fans will continue to be the heart of their shows. The Maine last visited our shores in 2019, when the band released their “You Are OK” album.

This is The Maine’s only show in Southeast Asia before they continue with their tour in Australia, the U.S., and the U.K. Filipino rock group Written By The Stars will be the supporting acts for the show.

Concert Round-up: See You Again Soon, Super Junior (Postponed #SS9inManila)

Filipino ELFs have been waiting for August 6 for a long time. After almost three years, Super Junior was supposed to bring their Super Junior World Tour – Super Show 9 to Manila. However, due to unfortunate circumstances, the K-pop group has postponed their show and instead held a meet-and-greet with fans.

SuJu’s Siwon and Eunhyuk were not able to fly to Manila. Siwon tested positive for COVID-19, and late last night, the group announced that Eunhyuk’s father passed away.

The arena, a sea of sapphire blue lightsticks, was somber at first. ELFs also put black ribbons on their lightsticks. Kring Kim, event host, welcomed everyone and talked to the crowd before SuJu graced the stage.

Each member connected with the crowd with their speeches. Even though they were grieving and emotional, they asked for the fans’ understanding. ELFs chanted “kwenchana” (tr: It’s okay) in return. They promised to return with Siwon and Eunhyuk next time.

Leeteuk said their concert is a show that gives ELFs hope. He then announced that tonight’s Super Show is not canceled. It’s just postponed. “You just bought the tickets early,” Leeteuk said.

Super Junior sang three ballads as a gift to their fans: My Wish, Callin’, and 같이 걸을까 (More Days with You).
After their set, leader Leeteuk addressed the crowd and thanked the ELFs, who have supported them and walked with them for almost 18 years.

Super Junior World Tour – Super Show 9: Road in Manila was supposed to be the group’s sixth concert in the Philippines. Filipino ELFs, hold on to those tickets because a new date will be announced, and those tickets will be honored. According to PULP Live World, more information regarding the new show will be released soon.

Concert Round-up: Successful K-Pop Masterz with Treasure, Bambam, Jackson Wang at MOA Arena

On the evening of Friday, July 29, 2022, Korean stars Treasure, BamBam, and Jackson Wang all gathered together for 2022’s KPOP MASTERZ in Manila. After a climactic countdown, the first act of the night, Treasure— entered with a striking performance of ‘Jikjin’, followed with a selection of their songs such as ‘I LOVE YOU’, ‘MY TREASURE’, and ‘MMM.’ Shortly after, the fetching host of the evening, Kring Kim—with her vibrant pink hair and lively aura entertained the crowd with a few games.

Kicking off with treasure match wherein the members split into two groups competing against each other. It was team ‘mahal kita’ v.s ‘team gwapo’, engaging in battles of “bato-bato pik” and “Ddakji”, the notorious Korean game popularized by Squid Game. Treasure then wrapped up their segment with ‘BOY’ and a remixed performance of their viral hit song ‘DARARI’.

Up next was Bambam, opening with ‘wheels up’, and unexpectedly surprising the audience with a heartfelt performance of ‘Ngiti’ by Ronnie Lang – as per an old vow from one of his past shows in Manila a few years back.

Bambam, of course, kept to his promise and sang the song for his fans. During BB’s Yes or No segment, he proudly showcased his ability to say ‘i love you’ in six different languages, told his fans that he wanted to build a night market and name it #BamBamShotPuno, and even expressed that bangus is the best fish he tried, thus making #Bamngus trending on twitter. The highlight of the night, however, was when Bambam invited Sandara Park onstage for a special performance of 2NE1’s ‘I Don’t Care’. Bambam then encouraged his fans to do Got7’s fanchant as he ended his segment with a performance of ‘riBBon’ with Sandara.

Jackson Wang, the final act of the night, opened with ‘Cruel’ and swarmed the stage with dusky yet enticing themes. He also performed ‘Blow’ and new songs from his upcoming ‘MAGICMAN’ album. Jackson acknowledged and praised how genuine and passionate the crowd’s cheers were, even going as far as to say that he could feel that his fans truly meant it. The Got7 member ended the night with a charismatic finale of ‘100 ways’.

Everything that had transpired wouldn’t have been possible without Inang Reyna of Kpop Happee, Sir Vernon, and everybody at Pulp Live World. We would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to them for giving teume’s and aghase’s the novelty to see their idols and witness their performances live, and for making their dreams come true for the night.
