Daughtry is here in Manila to hold a one night concert at the Eastwood City, the concert will start at 8:00pm tonight and many fans of the band and also Chris Daughtry fans and lovers will be at the Eastwood city center stage to watch their Asian tour.

I was with the Yehey.com team last night at the Shanghai bistro for the press con of the band, we were there at 6:30pm and we got inside the press room and waited till 9:30pm to have a chance to interview and cover the band and Chris Daughtry. It was a long wait for us, and the room was filled with press, media, tv cameramen, writers, reporters and the whole room got crowded every hour. I'm glad that they serve this great dinner meal courtesy of Shanghai Bistro.
I met some friends in the field, like Fudge Magazine, got a talk to them regarding their next issue and also thank them for featuring the Toy Con 2008 and some cosplay models, during that time I almost felt asleep during the long wait, and Ana Gan of Fudge shared her mp3 player with Weird Al Yankovic and we were laughing and I like his new songs, RnB and kinda broadway style of bastardizing others music, I enjoyed it and it made my day and got an energy to wake up.

I went in and out of the venue just to catch some air, also I look at Lace outside who is waiting for me, she didn't get in because she's not included in our team to cover the event. DJ Mo twister was there to talk to us and cheer up the media and press, he joked that everyone looks like came from the Bench Black Party because all of the people inside are wearing black shirts, then I said I'm wearing pink shirt hahahaha.

Then at the time 9:45pm the band arrives and lots of fans are outside the barricade screaming and the band waves to them. Then I went back to the room in order to have my set up, then before I sat down, my foot got stuck to some chair and then the organizers opened the big door divider and the band was waving at us and i was shocked because I was still stuck and standing ahhhaa, then everyone move at the front to get a great view, camermen went there so quickly and it nearly look that the band will be mobbed by the media hahaa, it was a fun interview portion with us, I seated myself in the front side of the band and took photos and video, as you can see it by my coverage materials. Then after some funny talks Josh Steely dance with Joey Barnes and it was funny, the band is in relax mode and they are comfortable, maybe they just rested for a lot of time after arriving from a long flight.

A friend reported to me via plurk.com that she saw the band last night at 7:00pm in Shangri La Plaza mall, maybe they just finished some dinner and did a little hang out or shopping hahaha.

So after the media interview portion, they left the area, but they stayed outside with their road manager, the interview is facilitated by the band's road manager and the event organizer, all medias were relocated back off the room, and then they re-organize the one on one interview with the band, it is an exclusive interview with the band for all media partners, and that includes Yehey.com, and me for covering the interview.

Me and Cheekie of Yehey will be there in the front to do the interview, Cheekie will ask questions and for my part will take video of the event, we coordinated properly with each other so that everything will be smooth, After the Tv interviews, it was our turn to come in front,. then it happened, it was a quick 1:43 minutes talks with the band, they enjoyed the talk with Cheekie as what I observed and Chris Daughtry did like Cheekie's jeans, hahaha I was laughing at the near end of the video as I saw Chris Daughtry's face and saying "hmmm I love pants!"

it was a big night and Chris talked to Cheekie and wishes that he likes to talk again to her tonight after the concert, but I don't if she will be there, but me...will have a meet and greet with the band after the concert, I'll be there covering the event also with permission and passes by the organizers ( i hope..) and Lace will be my lucky guest to come with me to watch and also meet the band...

As Elaine of Yehey said earlier if I was a fan of Daughtry, I just told her that I'm not a big fan, I just love guitar riffs and pop rock, but if they perform on stage and saw it live..I might turn into a big fan after wards hahahaha.. wow.. it will be a busy night later.
