Nostalgic, rockin night with Incubus in Manila 2015

Four years after their third concert in the country, rock band Incubus returned in Manila for their Trust Fall tour as they performed their greatest hits and from their upcoming album, "Trust Fall (Side A)" which will released on May 21. The jampacked concert was held last night, March 13 at SM Mall of Asia Arena.



When Ian and I learned that they will be having their fourth gig here in the Philippines, we're ecstatic to watch them. Three failed attempts to see them in 2004, 2008 and 2011, last night was the best concert ever in my entire life.





I became an avid fan since their S.C.I.E.N.C.E. album, and added their songs on our Spotify playlist. I knew a lot of you drooled over since we posted on our Instagram account upon the announcement of their tour and updates of what happened last night.





















Just before they took off the stage, talented violinist and composer Lindsey Stirling serenaded the crowd songs from her "Shatter Me" album.

When they entered the stage, rowdy crowd shouting for Brandon's name...I was stoked when I saw him and sang of my favey songs. Too bad for Ian, he missed the concert.

From "Wish You Were Here" to "I Miss You", I was teary eyed while seized the moment because their songs became part of my life. Amazed over on how the lead vocalist Brandon Boyd sizzled the crowd as he performed along with other members of the band, drummer Jose Pasillas; lead guitarist, Mike Einzinger; keyboardist Chris Kilmore; and bassist Ben Kenney.

What makes my night complete, despite of the fact it's Friday the 13th? When Einzinger threw some guitar picks over the crowd in the moshpit, I was lucky to get one of it. I immediately posted it on our IG...good thing someone helped me out to look the said pick infront of me using his phone's flashlight.

It's a helluva night! Fab setlist + great crowd = one nostalgic night!
