3rd March 2012 7:00pm; Its the day of the event and everyone is on their heels for the final preparations. Everyone was early to arrive at the venue; committee members are on the run to organize their crew and positions. Ticket sales is on the go and the committee pushes for final advertisment runs to promote the event. I felt an overwhelming feeling of reverence when I saw the venue, top 5, for the first time. Its just so grand that comes at par to the best concert venues in town. A lot of people were really impressed on the detail put into creating such venue.
Tension was building up as guests started to arrive and the question of will there be enough tickets sold to make the event a success still looms. Minute by minute people started to pour in and at a span of 2 hours the venue was packed to about 650 people. the concert started out with performances of Duster and followed by Kean Cipriano and Ney Dimaculangan with 6Cyclemind. The event was concluded by performance of Sandwich which was very lively and vibrant. The guests was in for a surprise when Parokya ni Edgars' Chito, Vinci and Dindin showed up on stage to perform with Sandwich.
It was indeed a long night and all the preparations and hardwork payed off with success. Given the fact that the organizing team had less than a month to prepare, they managed to pull it off. This is considering the unending support from Horton Entertainment, APOAAS, SKEPTRON(AKHRO), MASP and Shifters. Now the next question breaks off into silence..When will the next Pinoy Rock Concert be held?
