Red Tour Asia: Taylor Swift Live in Manila 2014 (Mall of Asia Arena)

              Oh dear, have you ever been a fan of some artist that’s internationally famous and couldn't be in one place for a day? Isn't it hard to catch and meet the artist of your dream knowing that you’re just a Nobody? Have you tried just staring and listening on any albums or movies that artist was in because its an impossible thing to bond on them? Me? I tried to reached my favorite artist locally and internationally then so far, I'd got a little responses on the locals but so sad that I doesn't got any on the internationals though it’s okay because I so very much understand how busy international artists were. I’m solved whenever I watched their movies and listened on their albums, for meeting them was an impossible event of my life.

             Last two months, I was informed by my co-worker Ms. Joann that one of my favorite singer who's Taylor Swift will be having a concert here in my lovely country though, knowing that it will be in Manila was already a sad thing. I’m staying in Cebu and going to Manila would be very much impossible, knowing that the ticket cost and flying there will be very expensive. Though that doesn't sadden me much because I happen to found out that there were several contests in which I could join to win a ticket on Taylor Swift’s RED TOUR in the Philippines. Some of it were sponsored by PhilCharts (PhilCharts offers the latest & up to the minute updates in local & international music scene in the Philippines), Selecta Cornetto ( Selecta Cornetto offers an ice cream that's well-known for its creaminess, authentic flavors, and unique gold can packaging), Music Management International (Music Management International an event coordination company that specializes in producing large scale concert events and tours), DreamGiver (DreamGiver is a free internet service that lets you collect points by participating in several activities on their website), Keds (Keds  is a global lifestyle brand), Spinnr PH (SpinnrPH is the Philippines' FIRST music streaming service), Smart Communications (Smart Communications is a wholly owned mobile phone and Internet service subsidiary of the PLDT), AEG Live (AEG Live is one of the leading sports and entertainment presenters in the world), Air Asia Philippines (Air Asia Philippines is a low-cost airline based at Clark International Airport in Angeles City, Pampanga in the Philippines), Toyota (Toyota was one of the largest automobile manufacturer in the Philippines) and etc. But joining the above doesn't guarantee me that I will be able to attend Taylor’s Concert so while waiting if I’ll be bless of winning a ticket I write this blog post for at least making myself a little bit happy about the RED Tour Concert whenever I won’t be able to win a ticket.

Here are some lines of the songs included in Taylor’s Red Album:

Losing him was blue like I've never known, Missing him was dark grey all alone... - RED
We learn to live with the pain, Mosaic broken hearts, But this love is brave and wild... - STATE OF GRACE
This hope is Treacherous; This day dream is dangerous... - TREACHEROUS
And he's long gone, When he's next to me, And I realize the blame is on me... - I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE
And I know it's long gone, and that magic´s not here no more, And it might be okay, but I'm not fine at all... - ALL TOO WELL
We're happy free confused and lonely at the same time, It's miserable and magical... - 22
And I hope sometimes you wonder about me... - I ALMOST DO
And you, would hide away and find your piece of mind... - WE ARE NEVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER
This morning I said we should talk about it, Cause I read you should never leave a fight unresolved... - STAY STAY STAY
This is the last time I’m asking you why, You break my heart in the blink of an eye...  - THE LAST TIME
I was reminiscing just the other day, While having coffee all alone and Lord, it took me away... - HOLY GROUND
We had a beautiful magic love there, What a sad beautiful tragic love affair... - SAD BEAUTIFUL TRAGIC
New to town with a made up name in the angel city, Chasing fortune and fame... - THE LUCKY ONE
Come back and tell me why, I'm feeling like I've missed you all this time... - EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED
You'll spend your whole life singing the blues if you keep thinking that way... - STARLIGHT
Thinking all love ever does, Is break and burn and end... - BEGIN AGAIN
