Just For One Night: The Greatest Hits Tour

It's a blast!
It's a dream come true!


I watched "The Greatest Hits Tour" featuring boybands a1, Blue, and Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees at Smart Araneta with my mom last February 25, 2012. It was all worth it! :D

I am an avid a1 fan ever since they started in the music industry. I've collected all their albums, whereas cassette tapes are still being sold in record bars during those times. I have all of their albums from regular to special edition original copies. Currently, I felt lucky for having their current album with autographs on it, as it was released during the concert.

So the concert..

Jeff Timmons was a member of the boyband 98 degrees. He started the performance singing 98 degrees' hits like I Do and enchanted the audience by his manly appeal. He has a very good vocals, as I may add. Jeff also surprised the audience as he collaborated with the Filipino band "South Border" and sang the OPM hit "Rainbow".

a1 returned onstage after ten years and their performance was still amazingly high-energizing and it totally rocks the Araneta away as they performed their greatest hits from their previous albums like Everytime, Like a Rose, Same Old Brand New You, and Ready or Not, and some songs from the newest "Waiting For Daylight" album. Ben Adams, Christian Ingebrigsten, and Mark Read blew everybody as they shared that they found out their adopted Filipino names: Bentoy, Chan-chan, and Macoy or Mac-mac. Seemingly among the three performers, they were the ones who sang longer than the others.

And because of this, it makes my ticket all worth it! Hahah!

a1 also signed 500 Waiting For Daylight albums that were sold before and after the concert, signifying the availability of the album in the Philippines. Aside from singing their songs, a1 also sang  their renditions of "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga and "I Gotta Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas.

Last to perform is Blue. This boyband performed using minus one songs since they don't have any band or back-up singers compared to the two performers. On the other hand, they were the only ones who showed choreographed performance: singing and dancing, and changed their outfit after singing a few songs. Duncan James, Lee Ryan, Antony Costa, and Simon Webb came back in the country after eight years, and still managed to blew off the crowd with their hits Fly By, If You Come Back, All Rise, Too Close, and many more.
