My First ONE OK ROCK Live ExperienceFriday, January 29, 2016
Hi guys...I AM BACK!
Happy new year~ My 2016 started with a bang! The last 3 months of 2015 I was really busy with some personal stuff, and just when January started, I became more excited than ever because of the most anticipated event that we ONE OK ROCKers of the Philippines have waited for - none other than ONE OK ROCK's 2016 35XXXV Tour Live in Manila.

YES! It happened. IT FINALLY HAPPENED!
The long wait for us Filipino fans was already over last January 19, 2016 when ONE OK ROCK rocked the Mall of Asia Arena that evening.
So me and my fellow Davao ONE OK ROCKers flew all the way to Manila to see the boys live.

Wow! I could really call this as a big achievement of our fandom. I didn't expect that we'd be able to make it in such short period of time in preparing just to attend the concert. Some of us took leave from our work, while some of us went absent in school for a few days just to witness this awesome band.
I seriously don't know where to start. It's been more than a week but my mind is such a blur to be honest. Still in the state where I'm having "Post-Concert Depression". Call me abnormal, but I guess that's how just ONE OK ROCK's magic affect me that night.

A year ago, I only watched them on DVD or in Youtube, but nothing compares to their live performance. My eyes, ears, and feet never got tired. I enjoyed every moment of it. I don't want the night to end, but at some point I knew it had to be over.
So this was my very first ONE OK ROCK live experience...and I can't wait to experience more of it in the future! Once you'll get a taste of them, you'll definitely crave for more.
See you again soon Taka, Ryota, Tomoya, and Toru!
I love you. We love you. Philippines love you!
...so that's it, guys!
'till next post! - k*
