Spoiler alert: It was amazing.
Singer-songwriter Anne-Marie rocked the house at her recent concert in the Philippines. People filled the New Frontier Theater as she played her greatest hits and a few songs from her newest album.
Let us tell you more about the “Anne Marie” experience.
Anne-Marie’s concert in Manila was everything we could wish for. Her music left fans in the New Frontier Theater emotional.
“I’m going to be doing a lot of songs, a lot of old songs and new songs. First of all, if you haven’t noticed, we’re going to go from a lot of angry songs, then we’re going to go into the love section, and then, we’re going to go into the party section,” Anne-Marie shared with the crowd.
Her outfit was quite simple, which we loved, BTW. She wore a plain tee and baggy pants and had her hair pulled back in a braid. But the thing we loved most about Marie’s performance was her connection with the fans. She occasionally said a few Filipino words like “kamusta,” “salamat,” and “mahal ko kayo.” The crowd went bonkers every time she’d let loose with a phrase!
Anne-Marie loved the Filipino crowd
Marie performed a lot of familiar tunes. She opened the concert with “Ciao Adios,” and everything was a roller coaster ride of emotions from then on.
Before singing “Tell Your Girlfriend,” Anne-Marie praised the Filipino crowd for their enthusiasm. “This is the loudest crowd I ever had, ever. I feel like this show will be one I remember for the rest of my life,” she said.
She went through a series of songs that made them cheer, cry, and dance. From the famous “2002” (which she sang with Darren Espanto on ASAP Chillout four years ago) to “Friends,” everyone gave their all to match the incredible energy Anne-Marie displayed throughout the night.
By the show’s end, Marie told everyone to pose for a group selfie and said her last few words. “I want you to understand; it has been great to spend this evening with you. Thank you so much for coming. You have made this so special for us.”
Here’s hoping she comes back soon!
