Day in the Life of Candy
Hey, Candy girls!
Let me tell you about all the awesome things that transpired on this amazing day.
It didn't really start out great as shown in this picture (I'm with Lou, who's also from Summit). We were pretty bummed out that we had to wait so long for the Maroon 5 press con to start.
But the wait was definitely worth it when the band walked into the room. They were all smiles! MCA Universal awarded them a platinum record for their album It Won't Be Soon Before Long.
I didn't get to ask the band my question (Mimi and I thought of asking them why they waited so long to get their sophomore album out—did they get intimidated by people's expectations since their first album was such a hit?), but check it out, Adam so wanted me to ask a question. HAHA! In my dreams!
After the press con, Mimi and I posed with our passes (which we had to return after, haha). It was also a mini-reunion for me and my Speech Comm course mates, too! Golda works for Viva and Robelle works for Araneta. It was great bumping into them!
I wasn't going to watch the concert, but out of nowhere, my friend sent me a message to ask if I wanted to watch Maroon 5 because she had an extra ticket! I remember replying, "OMG YES PLEASE."
They opened with "If I Never See Your Face Again" and sang songs from both of their albums.
Everyone went wild when they sang "Makes Me Wonder" and even more when they sang "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved."
I loved how simple their stage looked. With just these five panels that were colored differently by light for each song. This was my favorite, though. Aren't the colors pretty?
Here's a shot of Jesse Carmichael on keyboards and James Valentine on guitars. I got lucky with this shot of Matt Flynn, who did a great drum solo when they went back for the encore. I love you, Matt! Too bad I wasn't able to take a snap of Mickey.
This was, quite possibly, one of the best concerts I've ever seen in my life! I was so happy that they played "Sunday Morning" (since I knew they probably weren't going to play my favorite songs from the new album). So for seven minutes, I had my arms raised up in the air trying to record the entire thing!
And look at Adam's happy smile. He said it was one of the best concerts they've ever played and that it feels great to be far away from home, but feel right at home, anyway. Mahal ka din namin! We hope you come back!
This day will definitely go down in my history as one of the best days EVER. And I know I probably didn't do it much justice with this blog, but at least I'll have something to remember it by.
How about you? What was your best concert experience?

I won't deny it: I spend way too much time online. Mostly I'm just stalking people on Facebook and Instagram, other times I'm doing something more useful like reading articles...
