Still can’t get over Anne-Marie’s concert last Sunday? Yes, I feel you! So, let’s have a little recap on the highlights of the concert.
The Dysfunctional concert tour in Manila was performed by Anne-Marie and his bandmates, Alex and Matt, in the New Frontier Theater last October 16, 2022. The stage was designed with two giant bears and art backdrops while she performs her setlist which is mostly from her album, Therapy.
The setlist was divided into 3 concepts: Anger, Love, and Party, which are the meanings of her songs. She even says that “I love writing angry songs” and explained that it is her way to express herself that’s why most of her setlist is for those suffering heartbreaks from their ex-boyfriends.
Opening the show, Anne-Marie sang “Ciao Adios” which was met with loud screams and chants from her FILO NINJAS. What’s totally amazing is that throughout the show, Filo Ninjas sang the whole song with her, and that totally took Anne-Marie by surprise. She even said that her concert in Manila will be the most memorable one of her concerts.
Of course, we couldn’t skip putting the fan project made by Filo Ninjas. They raised banners saying “Thank you for being our therapy” and “ We are beautiful all of us”. In between her songs, she would say Filipino phrases like “Salamat”, “Mahal ko Kayo”, “Kanta!”, and “BONGGA, BONGGA!” that made her fans scream. She and her bandmates had also shared their fair share of Filipino foods to try and they said they liked Lechon, Adobo, and Balut.
