Rattle This Scene: Walk The Moon Live In Ayala Malls, Market! Market! 2015

I became a fan of Walk The Moon a long while ago when I first listened to Anna Sun. To say that I was psyched they were touring in Manila at the Ayala Malls would be an understatement. Last Thursday, I finally watched the band perform live at Market! Market! and it was a wonderful experience.

The concert opened with an introduction of the band members to the tune of Lion King’s Circle of Life. That’s Kevin Ray shimmying adorably.

When they performed their first song, I jumped up and down like a crazy person because it was Anna Sun. It was absolutely the perfect concert kick starter and the energy of the crowd and the show just got livelier from that point on.

My other fave songs they performed were Different Colours, Avalanche and Portugal. You bet I sang my heart out. But really, the whole set list was awesome in general.

And of course, when they ended with their most popular song, everybody danced right along as Walk The Moon performed Shut Up and Dance. The whole show was like a dance party, really.

What an unforgettable evening it was. It’s been 3 days and I’m still on a post-concert high and still playing Talking Is Hard on repeat. Thanks for rattling Manila, Walk The Moon.

    Dear Hazel,

    I was in the middle of catching up with my blog comments when I came across your blog and I saw you made a recap of this event here. I’m still trying to get over this show, or the two other shows I’ve been to, but here I am sitting in front of the PC, trying not to cry. Hahahaha!

    On a serious note, I love your photos! I can’t possibly take great concert photos like you do. This post made me miss them more. Loved seeing you that day too. <3
