Pumping my Kicks with the Foster the People Live in Manila

It was a fair Saturday afternoon and was hanging out with the boyfriend when I received a text from Az of http://azraelsmerryland.blogspot.com, if I would want to cover the Foster the People concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum that night. Too bad that I only know of one song, but I still said yes because concerts will always be my thing. Held last October 6, Foster the People Live in Manila was presented by Midas Promotions, Dayly Entertainment and Karpos Multimedia. 


I arrived at the coliseum at 7PM and was seated at the Upper Box, though alone, I enjoyed my “me time” listening to their hits. Their first song was Miss You, and the crowd sang altogether with vocalist, Mark Foster. I loved how the band has so many fans and their glow sticks lighted the Smart Araneta Coliseum. The other members of the band are Mark Pontius for drums and Cubbie Fink playing the bass.

Their setlist includes Life On The Nickel, Houdini, Broken Jaw, I Would Do Anything For You, Waste, Love, Call It What You Want, Don’t Stop (Color On The Walls), Warrant and Helena Beat. When they left the stage, the people were asking for more, so they went back and sang Ruby and their most popular song (and the only one I know by heart), Pumped Up Kicks.

Most of the people around me are teenagers and students and they know the lyrics by heart. Good thing I didn’t feel out of place because the Araneta Coliseum is so cozy. Their extreme transformation in terms of their facility is wonderful especially for people who enjoy concerts like me. For someone as OC as me, I needed to feel comfortable when it comes to an event venue and they didn’t fail my expectations. I must say that I enjoyed watching the concert alone. And I am definitely crossing that out of my bucket list. 

The stage is so cool! (Photo credits to Bruce Casanova of Araneta Center)
