Swedish House Mafia: One Last Tour in Manila

Last January 16, 2013, I was given the opportunity to watch SHM's One Last Tour at the Arena with VIP tickets c/o @Smart_Kimberly of Smart Communications. If you don't know Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia then you probably know their their electro/progressive house hit singles such as "Don't you worry child" and "Save the world". If you still don't, then you have probably been living under a rock as these songs have been stuck in my head just not too long ago. Kidding! =)

Although Steve wasn't able to make it due to some stomach issue, it was still probably one of the most intense and most dramatic house concert I've ever been to. I could not stop flooding my friend's timelines and sharing this experience on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook right there and then as Smart's 3G signal proved to be unbeatable!

Prior to the concert, I've noticed how jam pack the place was. Everyone was definitely anticipating SmartSHM's One Last Tour. I wish I had the chance to take more pictures of quality but I only had my phone with me, so please excuse the poor quality pictures :(

Swedish House Mafia did not only succeed in sharing with us their progressive house mixes but their set also proved to be one hell of a show! It was a full-production of lights, sounds, and fire! Yes, fire!

The way the presentation was crafted made it seem like we were in an unknown planet. I can tell how every bit was meticulously crafted and thought of. The most dramatic bit of the show would probably be the point where they projected the Philippine flag on the set. But of course, it did not end there. To make the set even more berserk, they made sure that they expressed how much they enjoyed spinning for Manic Manila by parading not just one, but two actual flags. For some reason, I ALMOST felt like crying.

Definitely one for the books! Thank you @Smart_Kimberly!!! Be sure to follow @Smart_Kimberly , @Smart_Tob and @Smart_Myka on Twitter for promos, updates and assistance <3>
