2 Nights, 1D

“Here we go again! Another go around for all of my friends!”

Fans young and old alike were definitely up in the clouds as One Direction took the stage for their On The Road Again tour. Though the rain also paid a visit, spirits weren’t dampened since the wet and wild feeling surely added to the surreal experience brought by the breathtaking show – especially on the second evening. After all, this is 1D we're talking about.

Liam, Louis, Harry and Niall electrified both nights with their upbeat songs (which you can find on Spinnr), charming demeanor, and spirited performance. Ultimately, igniting the whole audience into an energetic frenzy. Accompanied with the amusing LED display, we were not only treated to a concert but a party. But of course, how could we leave out their heart piercing hits such as “You & I” and “Little Things”? It was truly magical when the grounds lit up with the fans’ own lights as the sing along to the touching track.

But what would a One Direction show be without the boys’ playful banter? The audience really enjoyed seeing Harry become a human chair for one of their staff members’ birthday on day 2 of OTRAT. Liam additionally, gave an unexpected treat to the fans as he suddenly belted out his version of I Will Survive. They too took the time to read the banners made by the Directioners, (from Liam giving his best attempt at pronounce nakakapagpabagabag) to exclaiming their love for nuggets - earning Louis a cheeseburger plus a nice lesson about healthy eating from Harry.

“These last two days have been phenomenal!” Liam shared. It was quite obvious that the boys really did enjoy their time here in Manila for their two-day show. I’m pretty sure that all the Directioners, both present and spiritually present, crave for more from One Direction.

If I were to base this on how many times Liam sang “Manila!” they’ll surely be back for bigger and better shows here in our hot, wet, and wild country. Truly, we'll be proving once again we are indeed #NoChillPhilippines.
