I literally screamed when I found out about LIV5! The thought of possibly seeing my favorite bands live was something that was on my mind constantly. I just couldn't wait! I even entered MMI contests for meet and greets! I was so glad when I found out that I won. I found out that I was going to meet Forever The Sickest Kids and I just couldn't stop shaking!
During the Concert:
Meeting FTSK was beyond my wildest dreams, never thought that it would actually happen but it did! After the meet and greet, it was already A Rocket To The Moon's set, I have been waiting for them too! They were really amazing and they sang almost all of my favorite songs! Justin Richards was even aiming at me when he threw his pick! Nick Santino and Justin Richards even said hi to me twice! My signs worked!! It was time for FTSK, the moment I've been waiting for! They play their first song and I knew that their set was going to be amazing! They were all great performers! Caleb and Austin remembered me from the meet and greet and Jonathan even said hi to my friends and I during the show! That kind of connection with the bands felt great!
In all honesty, concerts are really important to me, bands/artists bring people together, they give you the night of your lives. I met a couple of people that I would never forget, concerts make you feel infinite.
The best part of LIV5 was never even thinking that you'd be in that venue with the bands of your dreams, singing along to your favorite songs, it was just so surreal and I would do anything just to go back! I never even knew that these bands know about the Philippines but now, I'm pretty sure they'd never forget about it! The experience was just so amazing, it was a chance of a lifetime! Literally had the best night of my life! The thrill of going to concerts will never get old, the feeling is just so priceless! I am so thankful to have been part of LIV5!
After the concert, FTSK even tweeted our meet and greet photo, it was insane! They even wrote "MANILA UNDERDOGS!" and it was just something that I am really proud of!
