It was a week when Habagat lashed its fury in the Philippines and had hard hit Manila with torrential rains and floods, ironically came in line also with a series of great concert line-ups of foreign artists that will make you choose between safety and madness of going just to watch your favorite band. Smart Araneta Coliseum featured bands – from Smashing Pumpkins (which I regretfully missed), Snow Patrol and the 80’s cult classic Tears for Fears with Per Sorensen of Fra Lippo Lippi.
Friday, August 10, we went to watch Tears for Fears. Sans my DSLR, I settled to borrow a Panasonic Lumix camera to get a few decent shots from the bleachers area.
Tears for Fears is composed of English rock duo – Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. They were also joined by an emerging artist Carina Round during the show.
