February 19 was the date when Portugal and United Kingdom showcased their Pyromusical talents at the SM Mall of Asia. Thanks to Melo, I was able to snag media passes to take some photos. It’s unfortunate that the PR person for SM was very late, therefore, we didn’t have the chance to get a very good location (without any distraction from the trees, poles, etc). Anyway, it’s no biggie. What’s important is that it wasn’t raining! 🙂
In my opinion, this event is bigger than the 1st one. 🙂
The night was perfect, no rain. People were excited to see the sky flash with beautiful fireworks accompanied with music. First one to perform was Portugal. They used Bon Jovi’s “Bed of Roses”, which has been commonly used in previous Pyromusicals or even Pyrolympics (take note, Pyromusical Competition is different from the Pyrolympics). The first few minutes of firework presentation were ok, they were able to wow the audience with their finale.
After a few intermissions, United Kingdom performed. From the beginning, UK ‘s performance wowed the audience. Before the show began, we were having jokes on who will be playing Katy Perry’s song “Firework”. It was the song of the evening and then suddenly it was part of UK’s performance.
* by the way, all the photos here were from United Kingdom’s performance.
Here’s the schedule for the upcoming Pyromusicals. Make sure to buy your tickets in advance and go to the venue early to get a good spot. If you plan not to get the tickets with dinner, bring your own stools or mats where you can sit comfortably. Of course, expect heavy traffic and difficulty in getting a cab so better wear your most comfortable shoes!
Ticket prices are as follows:
VIP (w/ dinner) P1,500
