It's been two years since I last watched a concert and I was too happy to be back to concert-watching (and fangirling) again, this time with Sam Smith.
Sam Smith's "In The Lonely Hour" Tour in Manila was supposed to be last May, but was postponed to November due to medical reasons.
I bought the tickets on the first selling date last January. Since the SM Tickets website crashed due to the demand from concert goers. Luckily, a ticket outlet is a meters away from my workplace. No sweat! :P
|Almost a year ago|
The magic happened last November 21 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. This was my second concert at the same venue, but this time, I purchased the Lower Box Ticket (Php 4730), a lot better than my Paramore concert seat.
I love the whole album, "In The Lonely Hour" and his songs before the album.
Sam Smith started the show with a not-so popular song, "Life Support" and continued with "Together".
He sang his more popular songs in the middle of the show, alternating with his livelier songs, like "Restart" and "La La La".
|Look at the crowd!|
I love that he talks to the audience and gives a background on how he wrote the songs in the album. I could see that he was sincerely amazed that the audience know all words in his songs.
He ended his 16-song show with his most popular show, "Stay With Me".
Here is the complete setlist of the show:
1. Life Support
3. Leave Your Lover
4. I'm Not the Only One
5. I've Told You Now
7. Like I Can
9. Ain't No Mountain
10. Good Thing
11. Lay Me Down
12. La La La
13. Money on My Mind / Finally
15. Make It to Me
16. Stay with Me
Here are some of the videos I recorded:
Can't wait for your second album, Sam! :)
