Relive Your Fave Manila Concerts With This Nostalgic IG Account
They post memorabilia like tickets, setlists, posters, and more!
(SPOT.ph) With the current pandemic necessitating strict social distancing, going to concerts to enjoy live music (while closely packed in one place like a can of sardines amidst thousands of strangers) doesn't look like something that's going to occur again any time soon. But oh, to be back in those good ol' live music shows—fighting crowds to get in the front and see your fave artist, scream-singing until you lose your voice, dancing nonstop with your friends in the middle of a sweaty and energetic crowd. There's nothing quite like it.
For now, we'll keep crossing our fingers that we'll be able to experience stadium concerts again someday. Thankfully, you can still enjoy live music from your home with online concerts. If you're feeling nostalgic for some of the best concerts you've already been to here in the Metro, here's something that will take you down memory lane: MNL Concert Stuff, an Instagram account run by the people behind Manila Concert Scene, posts old-school memorabilia from past concerts in Manila!
This cool IG page is a treasure trove of tickets, posters, meet-and-greet passes, setlists, merch, and more from concerts that have taken place in Manila throughout the years. Just seeing them will make you long for the experience of a crowded arena with music thumping so loud you can feel it in your chest—and of course, a musician you love performing right in front of you. Check out some of the cool stuff we spotted on the account.
