MEET AND GREET
Well, this is kind of long overdue post since this happen way back January. And although I already shared photos of my experience during The 1975 concert here in my blog, I still want to post another one for me to share to you guys everything that happen during that day. And I must warned you that this is going to be a long post since I took a lot of photos during the meet & greet and concert. Bear with me.
My close friend, Ange, is a huge fan of the band and since she already knew that the boys are coming here in Manila, she bought her concert ticket ahead of time. The thing is she do not simply want to watch them live but also want to meet them in flesh (haha). So she desperately do EVERYTHING to meet the boys once they arrived here. And it is as if all the angels heard her, she read on Twitter that The 1975 will be having a meet and greet in SM North The Block the day before the concert. She called me immediately and although I am still not fan of the band during that time I voluntarily told her that I am very much happy to accompany her during the meet and greet and for me to take photos as well.
That is totally me having my Harry Styles moment <3
Ange and I just fooling around in SM North while waitng for the band.
This is Ange’s sign that we made an hour before the meet and greet. Haha. Sorry for my poor lettering.
Waiting for them to arrived.
Met some The 1975 fans as well :)
AND THEN THEY ARRIVED!!!!!
Everyone started screaming as we welcomed the boys on stage!!!
This photo totally explain our emotions right at that moment.
And we got our photo taken with them. Since we were the first 100 we got a picture with them but did not have our cd’s signed (sad) but it’s okay since we have this as a remembrance. Hehe.
So after the picture taking moment with the band, we hang out for a bit and waited outside and try if we can take glimpse of them once again. And so we did wait and this happen…
That’s Matty and George on the first photo and George on the second one. Ha! (sorry for the blurry photos) They walk past in front of me and I keep on shouting “Ange!” because she is not beside me!!!!! Ugh!! And so the boys left the mall and we ended up hanging out for a bit when our professor, who is a writer in a broadsheet called Ange that he have tickets for the concert of The 1975 tomorrow!!! And since Ange already have tickets, she ended up asking me if I want to come and I said yes!!!!
On my way to MOA Arena. Listening to The 1975 songs and familiarizing myself because I need to know their songs ASAP! Hahaha.
So we arrived at MoA Arena and Ange already got her ticket or should I say… TICKETS? Haha! The staff of the “broadsheet” asked her if how many tickets does she need and Ange said 2 for her and for me but sinceANge already has her own it then left us with having 1 more ticket!!! And so we cannot decide to whom we should give it since Labo (my boyfriend) do not want to watch the concert and chose to walk around MoA (he have different taste when it comes to music hehe). I contacted my friend, cleiabitria and told her that I have extra ticket and since she is not answering my calls, we gave the extra ticket to the girl we met during the meet and greet. Hello Clarice, you lucky girl!
The ticket that Ange bought is in VIP section and since our free ticket are Patron, we go to separate entrances. But the thing is, Patron and VIP have no barriers or whatsoever.. so we kinda sneaked up a bit and ended up in the front row in the VIP section! Hahaha! So lucky!
Ahhhhhh! And the concert started!! Banging us with The City!!!! <3
Hann being too adorable.
Them singing Girls.
View of the Arena while Matty is having a moment is their song Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You.
And then finishing it off with Sex.
Oh well, our night did not end there yet!! We followed the boys after the concert and went in their hotel. Ahhhhh!!!
We met Big Tam, The 1975′s tour manager. He is the reason why we have our cd’s signed!! Thank you, Big Tam!!
We met other fans that our also waiting outside the hotel with our sign “PLEASE HAVE A SELFIE WITH US. WE WAITED FOR 5 HOURS FOR THIS!!” And take note, it’s wy past 2am when taht photo is taken. Hashtag DEDICATION! Hello Ericka and the gang!!! <3
Unfortunately, we did not saw the boys on their way to the airport after more than 6 hours outside. Huhu. But it’s okay because we got our cd’s signed!! (Photo above) That’s Ange and I at the comfort room of Diamond Hotel.
It has been 2 long days with The 1975 nd I did not regret any moment of it. I enjoyed it so much and this experience is definitely UNFORGETTABLE!!!
PS. Sorry for a long post. I warned you! :)
