Timbaland and Justin Timberlake on stage
Timbo and the Earth Hour
I still have some energy to do a blog post about the TIMBALAND Shock Value II Manila Tour concert with Jojo and Justin Timberlake, the concert just start at around 9:45pm and the promoters and Timbaland decided to push back the concert an hour after the Earth hour event, the concert just participated this global energy saving movement by the WWF, and its good to know that the concert is a fund raising event for the benefit of the typhoon victims. ONE did a hip hop front act of the show during the Earth hour and then the Philippine All Stars joined with them on stage. After some intro and emcee talks, the lights went off and the big frame of dancing lights floats infront and Timbaland showed up and gave us a great dance night out with his beats. total estimate of audience is 82,000 (accdg to MCS)
check out a collection of photo coverage below and my report
Timbaland said, we should scream if we love him, and I'm one of the thousand audience screamed. and then realized that I love him that much, okay okay okay that is just audience participation, but after some beats I'm starting to love it
1st time ever
Timbaland mentioned to us that they did this concert style for the first time, I think her referred to the line up with Jojo and JT live and also performing live with different artist that he collaborated in his album, other artist appeared on a video call singing with Timbaland
The crazy camera and hands
Filipino concert goers always bring the camera everywhere, and at concert, this will be the first thing you will see if you are at 4 feet in height. I also see people recording the event, using their digicams, cellphone and flip video, saw some girls use a monopod to extend more their camera and raise it more higher, and record the whole concert in HD video. I also noticed that the people around me doesn't know how to use their digicams, they shoot photo all night and didn't notice the camera setting is in macro mode, the reason why they have major blurry shots
the guy pops out on stage and Timbaland introduce the guy as his brother, many people thought that it was Justin Timberlake, then Sebastian did some of his original songs after having a showdown of rap with Timbaland
one of the finest hour, and Timbaland is heating up the whole venue, smiling and making jokes on us, Timbaland aka Timbo performed with Jojo after 2 songs, she performed her hits and I'm happy that the audience sang with her, also during her 1st solo act, she almost slipped, her right foot with high heels slide down to the right, I'm glad that she have great balance, I saw her in the video monitor and she shouted "whooaa" while saying.
Jojo performed Lose Control with Timbaland and made a solo act and performed Too Little, Too Late
I just dont know how people can sneak in their DSLR camera, as you see that this is not allowed inside the concert venue, and I'm trying to figure it out how they sneak it inside, I know that this camera with its kit lens won't work and does not have any power zoom. I left my dslr in the package counter in SM MOA, and then my fellow blogger Earth brought her extra Sony camera and she lend it to me and use the camera to shoot these photos, but watch out for my camera shots using Earth's 7x zoom Canon Ixus 120is, fun setting it has a force zoom til 16x.
I think major audience goers are pure Justin Timberlake fans, but saw some pure Timbaland fans who sing with him during the whole concert, that's a great sign and activity of fans during concerts. Justin cracked a joke on Timbo after he finished a song with a recorded audio of Justin, then Justin replied back with the mic, talking behind the stage and Timbo laughed out and fans went wild. Justin did a great performance, although not into his fullest best, but I am satisfied on his performance, he did the sexy back song as the finale and SM MOA joined the fun lighting up their fireworks display.
Justin performed Carry Out with Timbaland, then My Love, Summer Love, Until The End of Time, Cry Me A River, Dick in a Box and What Goes Around…Comes Around (in keyboard version), Lovestoned(I Think that She Knows), and the final - Sexy Back. ( list source: Team MCS)
this is the most successful and well attended concert of the year 2010, me and the Manila Concert Scene and with blogger friends Earth and Ohmski, shared some views which concert for the year 2010, accdg to Team MSC, Timbaland now reigns in the best concert ever, followed by Ne-yo, then Paramore. We felt so tired after the concert, standing from 730pm til 1230am, and my body breaks down and glad that Mcdonalds is still open and I drank a solid cold Coca Cola to boost up more energy.
thanks and cheers to Blog Bank for my VIP ticket
and below are some of my shots using my blogger friend Earth's Canon Ixus 7x zoom digicam
tnx Earth for lending me your camera
