Note: My title comes from one of the songs this band has did a cover of. Check out Deftones’ version of The Cars’ “Drive” song. 🙂 I’m sure you’ll enjoy listening to it too.
November 2010, I saw the news break online that Deftones would be having an Asian tour next year, or as they commonly referred to, a “Pacific Rim tour” in 2011. Manila, Philippines was one of the places they would stop over and play a show for the Filipino audience. Of course during that time, only a short amount of information was released to the public to get some hype and attention.
After realizing that Pacific Rim was also the same name of the Incubus tour they had here years ago, I was OMG-ing all over online and trying to calm myself and not panic at the same time because, good god it’s way too early! It’s only November and the show’s not until February for fuck’s sake. Calm down and post on tumblr, twitter, facebook the news. SPREAD TEH WORD~!
I remember the poster had a “special guest” note in it. Many people had their guesses and speculations on who might that “special guest” be. My guess was Brandon Boyd (lol, IKR!).. Oh, I know it’s pretty impossible.. but there might be a big possibility since Deftones and Incubus are friends anyway. MAYBE they’re the ones who convinced Chino and Co. to add MNL to the list, LOLJK.
ALSO! I’d love to hear Be Quiet And Drive (Far Away) live, if you’ve heard the live version of that song with Brandon, you would understand why I want him to be here in Manila performing that song along with his buddy Chino.
A couple of weeks (-December) later, it was revealed that Urbandub’s that “special guest” that was mentioned in the poster. I wasn’t that crushed (emotionally), jsyk, I’m like “oh okay, no biggie.” The priority here was to see Deftones. 🙂 You have no idea how badly I wanted to watch them live here, ask my 16 year old self.
Here’s the final poster plus details of the show:
You can purchase tickets at any TicketWorld outlets. Check out their website for outlets close to your area! I’d get them at one of the NBS outlets because one of them is close to my school, so less traveling time, yeah.
Lol, I also did some ~*shirt designs*~ but unfortunately not many people liked them but I’m still posting them for the sake of looking back at this years later and uh, think if I did any progress from this.
