Lifehouse Concert in the Philippines

Lifehouse performed live in the Philippines! Not a music fan but I love listening to their music. I usually play Lifehouse during long drives and just sing loudly by myself. I quickly bought tickets when I found out that they were going to perform in the country.

The concert was held in the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City. Of course heavy traffic is expected in every concert there and not to mention hard to find free parking spaces. So we arrived there 1.5 hours before the show starts.

Lifehouse is one of few bands I listen to so I bought the Patron Tickets which costs me a lot of money. Finally the show starts and when they came out everyone just shouted and stood up. From there on, nobody in the Patron took their seats.

The place is full and everyone is just singing with the band including me. I just love their songs.

  2. Spin

  4. Simon
  5. Hanging By a Moment
  6. Blind
  7. Take Me Away
  8. Somebody Else’s Song
  9. From Where You Are
  10. Bridges
  11. Better Luck Next Time
  12. Whatever It Takes
  13. You and Me
  14. First Time
  15. Disarray – ENCORE
  16. Broken – ENCORE

Lifehouse Closing
After the concert while going to our car, we saw a crowd of fans waiting at a gate. They said that the band will come out at that gate. So we also waited for the gate to open. And after 15 minutes of waiting, the gate finally opened and everyone shouted but the cars just passed us by and they didn't even open there windows. Oh well.

Ticket prices were the following:
Our Lifehouse Patron Tickets
Patron VIP (101,103) (Reserved Seating)     4890
Patron (Reserved Seating)     3890
Lower Box (Reserved Seating)     3890
Upper Box A (Reserved Seating)     1890
Upper Box B    990

There was only a few meters difference from the back Patron VIP and the front Patron, we decided to buy the Patron. It's good that we only bought the Patron since during concert most people in the Patron stood up and went at the VIP section.
