“Pare, panalo! Panalo talaga ‘to!” (This (concert) is great! This is really great!) the guy on my left kept on saying as the Deftones were midway the concert, while the guys on my right were slamming in the mini mosh pit they’ve created. It was my second time to watch Deftones live, the first time was their Diamond Eyes tour, so it did not come as a surprise to me on what kind of performance they will show and how it would affect the crowd.
Almost everyone was jumping to each of their songs, Chino was reaching out to the crowd and even joining us in the pit, and with a 24 setlist-long performance, which was again more songs performed than in other Asian countries (we think that they like the Filipino audience more), no one was complaining after going home with an aching body and a cracked voice.
