Train Rocks Manila
American band Train rocked their Filipino audience on December 7 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Manila, Philippines.
The Grammy award-winning rock band Train—composed of vocalist Pat Monahan, guitarist Jimmy Stafford, and drummer Scott Underwood were nothing less than wonderful during their second concert in the country.
Vocalist Pat Monahan swept their fans off their feet with his sweet words “I wanna say, sincerely from all of us, this is our favorite place to come to…Thank you for being the most beautiful people in the planet.”
Manila was their second stop after Jakarta in their Asian tour. Their front act was 6 Cyclemind, a local alternative rock band.
At exactly 9pm, after a brief sound check, the band Train walked onstage to the fans’ delight. The concert started with the sound of a train. Parachute was the band’s first song which the fans screamed for and sang along to.
The song segued to their hit single If It’s Love which was greeted with more shrieks and screams.
Pat then spoke to their fans in the Filipino language saying, “Masaya kami makita kayo ulit sa Manila!” (We are happy to see you again Manila.) The crowd applauded and cheered.
Other songs performed were Meet Virginia, Get to Me, She’s on Fire, Calling All Angels, I Got You, Shake Up Christmas and Save Me, San Francisco.
Two lady audience members were asked to sing Don’t Stop Believing onstage. While Pat walked around the venue singing Marry Me.
The band’s last song was their single Hey Soul Sister after which Pat, on behalf of the band, thanked the Big Dome crowd.
The audience chanted “We want more!” and so they were given two more songs — Words and Drops of Jupiter.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade. Just enter your e-mail below and confirm your subscription by clicking the link that will be sent to your e-mail.
