Stone Temple Pilots, You Were Awesome!!

Stone Temple Pilots in Manila-3

Scott Weiland on vocals

Stone Temple Pilots is one of my favorite bands during the 90’s and them coming here is really something I looked forward to. My partner bought us  Upper Box A tickets for my birthday (what a nice birthday gift, baby!). Our location wasn’t really bad at all.

Since this is Araneta Coliseum, the view is much better because it has different levels.  Visibility of the band is impossible and you’ll be standing for more than 3 hours if you’re in SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. Our seats weren’t bad anyway. We really planned to come early so that we can choose good seats. Continue reading “Upper Box Tickets Aren’t Bad At All: Gin Blossoms in Manila”
