MCS Concert Review: 30 SECONDS TO MARS..BAND ON A MISSION

30 SECONDS TO MARS..BAND ON A MISSION

Written by Jamie Ortega

Photos by Azrael Coladilla


When you’re singing “Hurricane” in the middle of the rain you know you’re in for a stupendous time. Barring the torrential drops falling from the sky, Manila concert-goers were treated to a spellbinding performance from the insanely talented rock band 30 Seconds To Mars. Foregoing umbrellas, throngs of fans put on raincoats or simply braved the weather just to see Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Milcevic rock us out of our wits. And rock they did, and amaze us and mesmerize us for the 14 songs they sang. Donning a black poncho and stylish black sunglasses looking like a rock god from an alternate universe frontman Jared Leto appeared singing “Escape” encouraging everyone to “jump, jump, jump! “ This was followed by a riveting drum intro by Shannon Leto before launching into a “Beautiful Lie". By this time everyone was in a more energetic mood cheering and waving their hands to the tune. “Put your hands in the air and scream, does anyone wanna be crazy tonight! “shouted Jared while making an encircling motion with his hands, enjoining the audience in the rock extravaganza.

There is really no denying how much 30 Seconds To Mars loves their fans (who are called THE ECHELONS) and several instances during the concert have proven that. While playing the guitar Leto asked the audience to “Come a little closer, come here, come here everybody,” braving the rain and dashing around the catwalk while singing “Attack” not minding his soaked rock garb. When “This Is War” came on a sleeveless Jared took off his poncho and bared his vocals out while pointing to the crowd, holding his hands up to the heavens mimicking an orchestra conductor while challenging the audience to “come lets get crazy show me what you’ve got” as huge red balls bounced around the concert area.

How many bands call up throngs of their fans onstage while singing their momentous hits? Not a lot. And it was what made this night even more special for everyone present. Before performing “The Kill” Leto brought up several concertgoers onstage. When the fans requested for guitar picks the vocalist gladly obliged and asked them what they wanted to hear. He also uttered the words “mahal” which drove the crowd wild. “I want you to sing it so loud that everyone in the world wishes they were right here,” encouraged Leto before performing a dramatic rendition of “The Kill”. In between verses Leto let the crowd sing the song as the number was capped off by a heart-thumping wail.

Providing laid-back but equally entertaining moments in the show were an acoustic version of “Hurricane” and the gut-wrenching, quietly melodic “Alibi.” And then there was the moment that spread online like fire when Jared uttered the words IKAW NA which drew cheers and smiles from the audience. It added a sincere yet slightly comedic touch to a night that was anything but ordinary. As expected the band also performed their single the temptingly dark “Night Of The Hunter” which has been receiving consistent airplay from radio stations in the past few weeks.

In true 30STM fashion the night was capped by a multitude of fans joining the bands onstage as the entire arena sang one of 30 Seconds To Mars biggest hits “Kings And Queens”. As any proud echelon would know this band, great as they are in creating music, also seeks to deliver a message and that was exactly what they did when Jared, Shannon and Tomo rained confetti of written messages with mysterious words including the band’s motto “Provehito in altum”(Launch Forth Into The Deep). May their message ring forever in our hearts as we wait for their comeback (hopefully!)

Some MCS CONCERT NEWS TIDBITS:

- 30 Seconds To Mars is one of the nicest bands around. Shanon and Tomo gladly posed for pictures and did fist pumps with the fans at the hotel. When Shannon saw one fan with a cd he approached the fan and signed it.

- Spotted at the concert Kean Cipriano, Jasmine Curtis, Vice-Ganda, Piyero Vergara, etc,

Thanks to Sir Marvin Agustin, Nixon Sy, Kat Quijano and Grace Rufino of Futuretainment. Also, Ms. Ethel Cachapero of Polyeast Records

MCS Concert Review: David Archuleta Wows Manila for the Third Time!

David Archuleta wows Manila for the third time!

Contributor: Jeffrey Azor Osoc

Co-written by Jamie Ortega

Thumb through David Archuleta’s Twitter and it says there, @DavidArchie "I’m David. I like music". Those words right there are a clear understatement. David has proven that he doesn’t just like music HE LOVES IT.

Though the Utah boy did not win the ‘Idol’ title during its 7th season, David has stood above the rest with his stage presence and boyish charisma, not to mention, his unique vocals and flawless performance all which undoubtedly makes him an ‘Idol’ in the music world!

The first time Filipino audiences were impressed by David’s live vocals was in May of 2009 when he performed with Season 7 winner David Cook to an estimated crowd of 80,000 or more at SM Mall Of Asia. Two years might as well have been two seconds for this musical boy wonder because it was as if nothing changed, the compassion and love for David Manila audiences showed three years ago was still very much present at his concert last July 18 2011 at the Araneta Coliseum.

The crowd at his concert was full of wildly cheering fans. The show started with young pop singer Julie Ann San Jose as the opening act. She performed four songs which showcased her versatility singing tunes from Nicki Minaj, Paramore, etc.

Bouncing with electricity Season 7 ‘Idol’ Runner-up David Archuleta came on stage with high-spirits and a perpetually happy grin on his face. Bursting with excitement, David greeted the crowd with a ‘Hello Manila!’, The concertgoers reacted with incessant screams and applause. He then captivated the audience composed mostly of his hard-core Pinoy fans with his distinct energy, singing ‘Stomping the Roses’, a light-pop rock song from his third studio album, ‘The Other Side of Down’. The rest of the night was a slew of his peppy, sugary, bouncy hits from the aforementioned music compilation.

Proving his versatility and confidence onstage was when the charming pop sensation played Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles. The singer said that the tune reminded him of his mom. He lost track mid-song, stopped, then played harder with the audience singing along. “You guys just make me freeze,” he joked.

David also performed his American Idol Hollywood week song piece ‘Heaven’, a song originally done by Bryan Adams, with what can only be described as a bucketful of emotions! Another great cover which added spice to the night was Daniel Bedingfield’s Gotta Get Through This.

Though he is more known as a pop singer Archuleta proved that he could rock too when he performed a Tears for Fears original, ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World’, with a catchy pop-ballad arrangement!

But as expected it was David’s hit tunes that drew the most screams like the velvety Touch My Hand,” from his 2008 self-titled debut album. Archuleta capped off his third Manila concert with his biggest hit to date “Crush”.

Undeniably, every time this 20-year old singer-songwriter visits our country David always gives remarkable performances with his superb voice, strong stage presence and boyish grin that can make any girl turn into mush- and have an instantaneous crush.

See you again next time for another coolest and hottest concert. Stay tune here at Manila Concert Scene for more up-to-date concert news and event updates here in town.
