The One With The BSB Concert Pt.2

Okays… BSB concert post coming right up…

Tuesday 26th Feb, at approximately 1500 hours:

Mauritian and yous truly went to Menara Star to get our free tickets. Was overjoyed and excited about it. Kinda like reliving childhood again cuz after all, I did grew up listening to BSB…

Our happy faces…

The partially hidden happy face…

And so we had two extra tickets (a pair of tickets for one recipient)… in came the Michi and the JoJo. And thus we began our journey to Sunway Pyramid/Lagoon for the concert (concert’s at Sunway Lagoon but parked at Pyramid…), going through the massive jam and a potential thunderstorm which thankfully did not took materialize in full force that night.

Concert was at the open air stage at the Lagoon, where the sands are still wet and there were water puddles everywhere, and they had to barricade like half the place for the VIPs. So we non-VIPs had to cram outside the blocked area, and as for the late comers they had to watch the whole show behind this mini river thing which failed to dry one that night. Lucky us we stood somewhere in the middle.

Of course, the camwhoring began. bsb.jpg

The Michi The JoJo The Mauritian and The Maestro.

And so the concert began almost an hour late (staying true to the Malaysian timing). Started with what the Boys in their boxing gown/dress/suit/one-piece or whatever you called it, and they began with Larger Than Life, with a mix of Kanye West’s Stronger in between. Nice way to kick things off.

The Boys strutting their stuff

I can’t really recall the order of the show, but they sang most of their old stuff (think As Long As You Love Me, Quit Playin Games, I’ll Never Break Your Heart…etc) and their new stuff. Each of the Boys sang their own solo from their own solo effort, and in my opinion, AJ faired the best compared to the rest, with his Drive-By Love song. Brian did well too with his song Welcome Home, but as for Nick and Howie, their song is so forgettable I can’t even recall it.

The Boys wrapped things up with the encore song Shape Of My Heart, to the delight of the massive crowd on that night. But this was when things started to turn ugly…

The few thousand strong crowd started to take the escalator up to the Pyramid, and with such congestion, the escalator on the middle tier of the trail of escalators suddenly went busted and everyone got stuck on the mid tiers up the air like… really high, and we were all so close to falling down and die on the spot. What a sad way to die, imagine going up to heaven and if any angel were to ask you how you died, you reply “I died after attending a BSB concert”… angel goes “Lame….”

And that’s the end of it. Thankfully no one died, and all it left me was a pair of very wet jeans:

And Michi begging for money:

Overall concert rating: 3/5. Lost 1 mark because of the near death experience. It’s not funny when you’re in that situation…
