What I Wore Today: Maroon 5
Sorry for lack of better photos, I was alone when I was getting ready. So yup, I got to watch Maroon 5 at the last minute. I am not a super fan of Maroon 5 but I like their music. We were contemplating for the last month or so wether or not to purchase tickets but since me and C. have credit card debts needing to be paid, we decided to skip it. Fortunately, at around 5pm, the same day of the concert, I received a call from my best friend asking if I wanted to watch the concert with her for free. They managed to score some tickets through valuable connections. Of course, I said yes!
There was a storm that day and I was pretty sure we were going to have to trek from the parking lot to the events place so I decided to wear my Doc Martens. If there's one thing I hate, it's wet feet! This is what I wore:
Mustard Motorcycle Jacket - Croft and Barrow
Floral Dress - Glamour Studio
Sheer Stockings - Landmark
and Doc Martens
The concert was held in SMX which was basically something resembling a giant warehouse inside. No seats, no elevation. Since we only had bronze tickets, we were pretty far back from the stage (this made me wish I wore a pair of comfortable wedges instead). I could only catch a glimpse of the drummer's head the entire time. Good thing they had projectors so I could see what was going on on stage.
there's something about this photo that makes us both look really fat/wide! hehe
Before the concert started, there were these foam images floating in the air which said Fox. I guess Fox TV was their sponsor. They were quite interesting since it was the first time I have ever seen giant foam bubbles resembling words.
They're called Flogos. My over-all impression of Flogos? Yes, they're a new advertising/marketing tool. Anything new should cause quite a stir but I also think, just by looking at it, that they are terribly bad for the environment and tacky. So utterly "common" if you will (hehe).
These are the best shots of the concert I can share with you given my location:
The highlight of the concert for me other than when he sang old favorites from their first two albums was when Adam Levine performed their own rendition of the Alicia Keys hit, "If I Ain't Got You". The crowd went wild and his vocal range is amazing.
Overall, the Maroon 5 concert was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. And even if I didn't pay to get in this time, if I could turn back time, I would get a better ticket.
It was a no frills, pure talent concert and their rapport with the crowd was amazing. They really made an effort to communicate with their audience which their fans were more than happy to reciprocate with thunderous applause and shrieks from the fan girls. They sang more than 10 songs (I lost count after 11) and the entire concert lasted over an hour without an opening act. I am a big fan again! :)
The concert ended early since there was no opening act so we got to hang out in Chili's before heading home to knock back a few beers and a plate of fries and eggrolls. Yum!
Don't forget about my giveaways! They're both ending soon. Just click on the buttons at the right rail for details. :)
Have A Nice Day!
