It was a dream come true for all Filipino Swifties as Taylor Swift performed her 2nd show in Manila after a long 3 year wait! The American superstar was welcomed by a barrage of fans in red and in elaborate costumes and flashy placards at the Mall Of Asia Arena on June 6, 2014.
After camping out for hours, the red army amused themselves by singing Taylor's hits together – and loud! Moments before the gates opened, Swifties chanted "Taylor! Taylor! Taylor!" to express their excitement for the big show!
While the Arena gets packed, VJ Robi got quality time with Taylor Swift herself at the special meet and greet session! He even got an autographed photo too!
As a bonus, he also got a very special backstage tour from Andrea "Mama" Swift! She shared the interesting and also undisclosed details about the tour! Of course VJ Robi didn't miss the chance to have a selfie with Mama Swift herself! Too cute!
Before the big show, VJ Robi shared his pre-concert experience with the excited Swifties inside the Arena and played a little singing game with them too. The wait seemed long but everyone was entertained by the videos played on the screens. It wasn't long before the red curtains dropped and Taylor Swift came out and performed her heart out!
Her stunningly beautiful face was flashed on a 4-million megapixel screen to the delight of the audience! She was a living doll with her blonde hair, blue eyes, and sparkly smile – everyone was in awe of her beauty. "Magandang gabi, Manila!" Taylor greeted the loud and excited crowd with Filipino phrases like "Mahal kita", "Mabuhay!" and "Maraming salamat!". She got quick Filipino lessons before the show as seen on her Instavideo, but it sounded like she's used to speaking the language! Way to go, Tay!
Taylor rocked different outfits, guitars, and looks for her 13-song repertoire for "The Red Tour". One of the highlights of the night is her red Manila shirt! All the fans want to have that shirt too! Whether on the guitar, on the piano, dancing or just rocking out, Taylor gave her all for the Filipino fans.
Of course, aside from seeing Taylor in the flesh, the Filipino fans came for the music. Everyone sang along from the beginning until the end. A lot of the Swifties came out of the Arena with sore throats but with happy hearts.
