140606 Taylor Swift – Red Tour in Manila (1/2)

As promised, I did go to Red Tour. 😀 Would you believe I actually almost didn’t?! Tickets were sold out on the first day of selling (within the first hour I believe!) and SM Tickets kept on crashing on me. Not to mention tickets were being sold at a higher price (even from the non-scalpers–I don’t know if you can all them staff because they’re not exactly scalpers? lol), so with several resigned sighs, I gave up.

It’s even funnier because I thought the concert was on June 5th. I told myself that it wasn’t meant to be since I had to attend an overnight team-building outing on June 5 to 6 at Bulacan. I’d be back in Manila in the afternoon the next day. So, okay, there I was–morning of June 6, about the eat my lunch, then I casually texted Clara to ask about the concert. And she was like “wala pa, mamayang gabi pa!” (not yet, [the concert is] tonight!) and at that moment, I practically flipped the entire universe because I would be able to make it!!!

Except I didn’t have a ticket yet. OTL

So I quickly went outside to bathe in the sun use data charges (yay for finally getting postpaid!) and asked around online. Unfortunately, the seller I knew didn’t have the tickets anymore (she offered VIP to me for 14k PHP and I let go omg I cry lol). But! FORTUNATELY! My sister’s bf came to the rescue!

Long story short, I got lower box SRO (standing room only) for roughly 8k PHP. Not bad, yeah? (I hope next time I’ll already have a media pass so I won’t need to scavenge around for tickets. ;~;)

It took some time to get my hands on the ticket though. OTL Almost freaked out about the show starting at 8PM, which… didn’t. It started at 9PM. Yeah, you heard me. It started an hour late lol. A lot of people were still queuing outside the venue at 8:30PM. When the concert finally began, I’m 100% sure not everyone got in on time, because right when I entered the arena, the lights suddenly dimmed. Soooo, I guess I was lucky. [cue The Lucky One BGM]

As usual, like previous K-pop concerts, I sneaked in my equipment. Could’ve sworn people outside MoA Arena Starbucks’ washroom thought I murdered someone because of the masking tape’s sounds. u~u

Anyway, enough of my blabbering ((lies I’ll talk more!!!)) and onto the pics!
