Usher in Manila

The very first concert I attended in Manila. Last July 9, 2010, Usher had a concert in SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds to entertain his Filipino fans and to promote his latest album Raymond V Raymond. The show started a bit late (supposed to start at 8) with an opening act from South Border and Nina.

The show started an hour late than the scheduled event time. Usher started the show with Caught Up which gave everyone the hype to sing with him. But the wait was worth it. Usher performed a total of almost 15 songs which included all of his all time fave hits (Caught Up, Yeah!, Love in This Club, Confessions, Nice and slow, etc.). We purchased general admission tickets for Php600..far from the stage but the projectors provided up a close up for the performances. And guess how much the VIP tickets cost? It's amount that can only local actors and elites can afford of course. The concert was jammed pack with almost more than approximately 3000 to 5000 people. And me, Edz, and Ching were among those who enjoyed the night with Usher's awesome dance moves and voice of course.

Here's a video of his finale song, "OMG"
