I was really surprised that the Manchester-based band, The 1975, had a sizeable following in Manila! I think, if they gathered together everyone who watched in all the Ayala Malls they performed in, they would be able to sell out the NBC Tent maybe or at least the Patron section of the Araneta Coliseum.
At least there, the acoustics would've been much much much better! And the poor fans would have had better ventilation, more comfy seats and a chance to get to the loo or buy a drink, without having to worry about losing one's place in the crowded SRO area.
I think the band really performed well! They did try their best to sound good but the acoustics in Trinoma is not really suitable for a concert kasi sabog and kalat ang sound. Well, just like the other fans, we just made do with what was offered to us and I can safely say, we all had a good time! Looked like the band did too!
