Last month, Deftones had a concert in Manila. We’re supposed to watch it but the concert dates of Deftones and Stone Temple Pilots are quite near. Thus, me and Sha have to choose one. We ended up choosing Stone Temple Pilots because we like them more and of course, we both love the concert venue (Araneta Coliseum).
We got the Upper Box A tickets via TicketNet. The last time we watched a concert in Araneta Coliseum was the Gin Blossoms concert. We where seated at Upper Box B then.
Anyway, I was disappointed with the choice of Sino Sikat as the front act of Stone Temple Pilots. I like Sino Sikat but their music is very different from that of Stone Temple Pilots.
Stone Temple Pilots opened with Crackerman which made the crowd stand up and sing with STP. They played some old hits and some new songs. They did a cover of Led Zeppelin’s Dancing Days (they do this most of the time). There are some songs that I would have wanted to hear live though. Some of these songs are: Sour Girl, Creep, Lady Picture Show and Pretty Penny. It would have been awesome if they had an acoustic set as well.
Nevertheless, I’m glad to hear my favorite song, “Hickory Dichotomy”, from their current album. That song is included in my “gym playlist”. 😀
