Ever since I was in high school, their music have been a big part of my life until now. I have been devoted collecting their albums (even their solo albums), memorizing their songs, compiling their music videos, following them in social medias and all the stuff you can name when it comes to BTNH.
And that night, their live performances were witnessed by my own eyes - a dream come true for a die-hard fan like me.
In 2011, I was travelling to Catanduanes when I heard that they are going to have a concert here in Manila. It was really frustrating on my part and the only thing that I can do is to wish for their comeback. After three years, here they are again (very lucky me!).
Without any hesitation, I bought a patron ticket and skip a day from work just to finally make it on their concert. I was very excited and eager to see them. I brought the news to all of my friends (influenced by me to love BTNH) inviting them to come and watch with me. So in the night of their concert, I was with two of my bestfriends Sam and Boyong feeling very blessed because the patron seat was nothing but a big surprise. We were right in front of the stage (2-3 meters closer), even had a hand shake and saw them upclose. And the rest was totally unforgettable.
I am very happy and excited to share what happened on their concert. These are the highlights of last night's Bone Thugs-N-Harmony in Manila 2014 benefit concert:
Gloc-9 fired up the stage first performing his hits including Magdalena, Sumayaw Ka, Hari ng Tondo and his latest hit Takip Silim featuring Regine Velasquez-Alcasid. He even performed Kaleidoscope World by the late Francis M. He mentioned that his fast-flowing rapping style was influenced by BTNH.
Big Sloan, one of the Mo Thugs member, also performed on stage adding up the excitement to the crowd. Aside from them, many other guest local artists performed during the event.
They even requested the crowd to have solemnity, to pray for the Yolanda victims and even dedicated their long time hit song Tha Crossroads while Francis M's photos were flashing on the screen (that was really something).
