Neck Deep Rocks the Skydome in Manila for the 3rd Time! And Definitely Not The Last!

Team Manila Concert Junkies
Welsh pop-punk band Neck Deep returned to Manila last September 22, 2023 for the 3rd time, all sold out concert! It was held at SM North EDSA Skydome and it was jam-packed! Known as a pop-punk band and their relatable and rocking lyrics that made the fans hyped all throughout an hour and a half of the show.

They opened the show with their hit song “Sonderland,” and the crowd immediately went wild. But on the 3rd song, everyone is shouting “Kali Ma! Kali Ma!” and they performed it and the crowd got even wilder. The ground was shaking, and there are a lot of people who started crowd-surfing, the vocalist Ben Barlow stopped the show to remind everyone and make sure everyone is safe and even told the bouncers that it’s ok to crowd-surf and dont be mad at them. He reminded everyone to be safe so everyone can enjoy - and of course, there's a mosh pit!

Ben hyped the crowd with "Who here are going through something, like a breakup? If you are heartbroken or a Manchester's fan, some may even say it's "Heartbreak of the Century" the fans of course, moshed their pain away. H’as our music helped you believe that tough times won't last forever and you'll get through it? This song is for you - "Smooth Seas Don't Make Good Sailors''

“Who here is with their partner? we love love, we support all forms of emotions, I guess if you are in love then I feel you, this song is called "When You Know." and sure, all the lovers started hugging each other while jumping and singing along.

The band played a mix of old and new songs, and of course, sad songs "You can’t have the happy things without the sad shit every now and then, not just about life, if you are struggling, that’s ok” Phone lights on started to lit up the venue and "Wish You Were Here" started playing.


They played both old and new songs including fan favorites like "December," “Take Me With You” and "In Bloom." They were so thankful for Filipino fans as they were the first ones who made a street team for them, they expressed their love and so much appreciation for their fans.

Neck Deep closed the show with their biggest hit, “In Bloom.” Yet, they even joked that “December” its the their last song, the crowd shouted “In Bloom! In Bloom!” The band came back on stage, sang “Motion Sickness” “Gold Steps” and finally, “In Bloom.” The crowd sang along to every word, and the entire Skydome was filled with love and energy.

Overall, Neck Deep's concert in Manila was a huge success. “We’ll be back as soon as we can, we can’t thank you enough.”
