Yesterday, I am one of the ten bloggers selected as winners of 2 Lower Box tickets for the Back2Back Ultimate Concert: Taylor Dayne and Edwin McCain at the Mall of Asia Arena.
|2 concert tickets|
The Lower Box ticket is worth P2,970 each but I got the 2 concert tickets for FREE.
I asked my girl friend Drexie to come with me instead, she's from Marikina but she doesn't mind going the distance!
We arrived early around 7:15pm at the Mall of Asia Arena and we should be going to the Lower Box section but we were asked to enter the Patron section! Instant upgrade!
Around 8pm when the show started with some Filipino talent singers. They aren't famous but they are good singers as well. The foreign singers maybe are not yet ready for the night so they came first. I didn't get their names really, sorry.

Around past 9pm when Edwin McCain came up to the stage and started singing without any introduction. Maybe its a surprise for his audience?! I heard some Filipino audience asking "Si Edwin McCain ba yan? Siya na ba yon?" (Is that Edwin McCain? Is that him?)

The audience got crazy when he sang his famous single - I'll Be
Almost everybody was recording his performance with their digital cameras except for me.
He sang for an hour with his great and inspiring songs. He finished singing about 10pm.

The much awaited singer of the night, Taylor Dayne went onstage around 10:30pm. Taylor Dayne was a new wave singer of the early 1980s and in the early 1990s including "Tell It to My Heart" and the #1 Billboard hit "Love Will Lead You Back". Overall, she has had eighteen individual hit songs reach the top ten in Billboard magazine.
It was a rare and great opportunity for us to grace this concert with two foreign singers in one night :)
